81% Storm of the Century: Miniseries (TV, 1999) King's first original mini-series script is a marathon of communal anxiety with a spooky moral: we are ready to mortgage our children for our own restless comfort.‐ TIME Magazine

83% Golden Globes: 64th Golden Globe Awards (TV, 2007) For sheer aplomb, the Golden Globe for best Golden Globe speech has to go to... Hugh Laurie!... Charm, wit, grace -- clearly, the Motion Picture Academy needs to get Laurie onstage next month. ‐ TIME Magazine

9% Golden Globes: 65th Golden Globe Awards (TV, 2008) The Beverly Hilton Hotel was a mausoleum, no sexier than a high-school auditorium stage; and the reading of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association's awards had about as much zazz as the principal's speech on fire safety.‐ TIME Magazine

89% Golden Globes: 71st Golden Globe Awards (TV, 2014) SNL Weekend Update vets Poehler and Tiny Fey pulled a solid B-plus for an opening monologue... Otherwise, this was a ragged installment. ‐ TIME Magazine

59% The Academy Awards: 73rd Oscars (TV, 2001) Martin was meant to class the proceedings up a bit. And so he did. He turned Oscar Night into a party he might not mind attending. We give him a B plus for the monologue and an A for apparent effortlessness.‐ TIME Magazine

69% The Academy Awards: 74th Oscars (TV, 2002) At 4hr. 21min., this was the longest awards ceremony ever... It was also one of the most entertaining, or at least sit-throughable, Oscar shows in memory.‐ TIME Magazine

50% The Academy Awards: 80th Oscars (TV, 2008) With your host Jon Stewart delivering reliable quips as the host of this retirement-home party, the event had the sweet, familiar flavors of vanilla cake and Mogen David Concord Grape.‐ TIME Magazine

52% The Academy Awards: 78th Oscars (TV, 2006) I'd give Stewart's 10-minute opening monologue a gentleman's B -- intermittently funny, but not what I'd expected from the current god of comedy. ‐ TIME Magazine

100% Veronica's Closet: Season 1 (TV, 1997-1998) Alley has a shot at being TV's all-time funny woman. Funny in italics.‐ TIME Magazine

No Score Yet Absolutely Fabulous: Series 4 (TV, 2001) As incarnated by Jennifer Saunders (the series' only writer) and Joanna Lumley, Eddy and Pats are so evil they're medieval, so mean they're keen, so bad they're great.‐ TIME Magazine

C- 79% Star Wars: The Clone Wars: Season 1 (TV, 2008-2009) If you judge this series by the standards of the original trilogy--i.e., if you expect it to be good--then yes, it's as disappointing as the summer movie it follows.‐ TIME Magazine
