67% Saturday Night Live: Season 45 - Scarlett Johansson; Niall Horan (TV Episode) The second-to-last show before the holiday break was also one of Season 45's strongest, rivaling only Will Ferrell's November homecoming.‐ TV Line

90% Saturday Night Live: Season 45 - Jennifer Lopez; DaBaby (TV Episode) Jennifer Lopez had the unfortunate task of following Will Ferrell's well-received return to Saturday Night Live. To her credit, she more than held her own - even when the material wasn't quite up to par.‐ TV Line

80% Saturday Night Live: Season 45 - Will Ferrell; King Princess (TV Episode) It was the best monologue of the still-young season, and one of the many highlights from this weekend's above-average show (which admittedly got off to a rough start with that lazy, laugh-free cold open).‐ TV Line

70% Saturday Night Live: Season 45 - Harry Styles (TV Episode) The former One Direction frontman seemed a bit nervous during his monologue and his first live sketch, but shook off those initial jitters by the time he was asked to play one-half of an Icelandic couple in a lamaze class.‐ TV Line

30% Saturday Night Live: Season 45 - Kristen Stewart (TV Episode) I was genuinely looking forward to seeing her again. Unfortunately, Stewart didn't seem excited to be back, and that reflected in her delivery throughout the night. And the writing was also less sharp this time around.‐ TV Line

92% Saturday Night Live: Season 45 - Chance the Rapper (TV Episode) It's ironic that Chance the Rapper monologued about all the things that are second-best, because his second turn as host of Saturday Night Live was a vast improvement over his first.‐ TV Line

80% Saturday Night Live: Season 45 - David Harbour; Camila Cabello (TV Episode) "Mildly amusing" is also a perfect descriptor for the episode as a whole.‐ TV Line

83% Saturday Night Live: Season 45 - Phoebe Waller-Bridge; Taylor Swift (TV Episode) Waller-Bridge did a fine job as host (and was especially charming during her opening monologue), but she wasn't given much of a showcase.,, Perhaps most notable is that it was another strong week for Bowen Yang‐ TV Line

36% Saturday Night Live: Season 45 - Woody Harrelson; Billie Eilish (TV Episode) Thankfully, the episode found its footing - and gave at least one new cast member a chance to shine - after the first commercial break, when the show returned with a cameo-filled debate parody that really, really should have served as the cold open.‐ TV Line

No Score Yet The Good Doctor: Season 2 (TV, 2018-2019) Just like that, a potentially major storyline is resolved.‐ TV Line

58% American Housewife: Season 1 (TV, 2016-2017) Its central character isn't actually fat. Of course, that's part of the alleged joke in this mean-spirited sitcom.‐ TV Line

67% Saturday Night Live: Season 44 - Emma Stone; BTS (TV Episode) Stone was excellent throughout, and even managed to elevate some of the weaker skits...but I was ultimately expecting better material for her return.‐ TV Line

75% Saturday Night Live: Season 44 - Kit Harrington; Sara Bareilles (TV Episode) Harington did not prove himself a natural at sketch comedy, but he was a great sport throughout the proceedings. ‐ TV Line

100% One Day at a Time: Season 3 (TV, 2019) The #MeToo dialogue that took place in Episode 2 was especially thought-provoking.‐ TV Line

73% Saturday Night Live: Season 44 - Liev Schreiber; Lil Wayne (TV Episode) If you tuned out of this weekend's Saturday Night Live following a nervous Schreiber's awkward opening monologue, you missed what was easily the strongest episode of the still-young season.‐ TV Line

100% Saturday Night Live: Season 44 - Jonah Hill; Maggie Rogers (TV Episode) Aidy Bryant's Sarah Huckabee Sanders is not a great character, but the concept here - that the White House press secretary would need a sleeping pill so strong that she violently passes out - was rather brilliant.‐ TV Line

A 93% The Conners: Season 1 (TV, 2018-2019) While The Conners is packed with poignant and tearful moments, it's mostly really, really funny. And, given the depressing events that led to the show's creation, we could all use a good laugh.‐ TV Line

15% Saturday Night Live: Season 44 - Awkwafina; Travis Scott (TV Episode) The second episode... was something of a mixed bag. Awkwafina wasn't given much to work with, playing the straight person in a series of mostly forgettable sketches, while the very best the show had to offer came in the cold open and Weekend Update.‐ TV Line

33% Two and a Half Men: Season 12 (TV, 2014-2015) A big, crude and unapologetically vulgar finale. In other words, it ended the only way it knew how.‐ TV Line

70% Roseanne: Season 10 (TV, 2018) Roseanne ends its first revival season on a high note, giving John Goodman his best dramatic showcase since the original series' run.‐ TV Line

100% The Middle: Season 9 (TV, 2017-2018) It's the beginning of the end for The Middle, which kicked off its ninth and final season with an especially reflective premiere. ‐ TV Line

92% The Last Man on Earth: Season 4 (TV, 2017-2018) The Last Man on Earth remains very much on the bubble.‐ TV Line

100% One Day at a Time: Season 2 (TV, 2018) The writers did a superb job reflecting the current toxicity of politics without letting President Trump become the focus.‐ TV Line

28% Kevin Can Wait: Season 1 (TV, 2016-2017) Kevin Can Wait should have no trouble mining humor from the odd-couple dynamic destined to form between Kevin and Chale.‐ TV Line

38% Maya & Marty: Season 1 (TV, 2016) [It] played it safe and aimed to please. Missing were the random trapeze acts and D-list cameos that plagued Neil Patrick Harris' primetime reality venture.‐ TV Line

33% Party Over Here: Season 1 (TV, 2016) Party is indeed a worthy experiment for Fox, which prides itself on starring three female comedians and not 15 white male costars. ‐ TV Line

7% Dr. Ken: Season 1 (TV, 2015-2016) Dr. Ken is the latest in a long line of TV doctors whose bedside manner could use a little work.‐ TV Line

94% Orange Is the New Black: Season 4 (TV, 2016) The cheekily titled "Work That Body For Me" quickly confirmed Alex's fate... and set up new obstacles courtesy of MMC, new inmates and Martha Stewart archetype Judy King.‐ TV Line

30% Uncle Buck: Season 1 (TV, 2015) There's only so much the actors can do to overcome the subpar writing.‐ TV Line

27% Rush Hour: Season 1 (TV, 2016) There are indications that The Powers That Be (which include Cougar Town vets Bill Lawrence and Blake McCormick) are well aware of what does and does not work about the film 18 years later.‐ TV Line

91% The Late Show With Stephen Colbert: Season 1 (TV, 2015-2016) He's no longer playing the role of narcissistic conservative pundit, but he's still as gleefully narcissistic and quick-witted as ever.‐ TV Line
