Shiri Appleby and Constance Zimmer play producers trying to turn people into characters

Even when I watched far more reality TV than I do now, I had zero patience for dating competition shows. And I haven't watched a Lifetime show regularly since "Any Day Now" ended waaaay back in 2002.

Yet I've already set a DVR season pass for "UnReal," Lifetime's new drama set behind the scenes at a thinly-disguised version of "The Bachelor." That's how good it is.

Funeral Plans for 2014-15's Network TV New Series Casualties

Say goodbye to 'Selfie,' 'Bad Judge' & so many more

Spring is a time of hope in the network TV business. The upfronts are held, schedules are changed, spiffy new show trailers are unleashed for the world to be impressed by, and optimism is everywhere. (In that way, it's much like the NFL Draft.) But spring also brings with it the end of the network TV season, along with the official tally of the shows that didn't survive it.

Which 'Game of Thrones' characters do we want to see meet each other next?

Should Varys and Theon form a support group? Could Brienne topple the Mountain? And how quickly could Jon Snow kill Ramsay?

Because the characters on "Game of Thrones" are spread so far and wide across George R.R. Martin's fictional world, significant characters can be on the show for years and never cross paths. Or, in some cases, they die before they get a chance to encounter someone with whom they might have a lot in common.

How ‘Louie’ got a shorter season because Louis C.K. got high

Highlights from C.K. and Pamela Adlon's Emmy FYC panel

The network TV season ended last week, which means we're diving deep into Emmy campaigning season. The official Emmy ballot gets sent to TV Academy members in early June, and in the meantime, networks and studios are doing their best to put on good faces for potential voters, sometimes with elaborate screener packages, sometimes with For Your Consideration panels featuring the creators and stars of their shows.

NBC will make all episodes of 1967 cop drama available to binge, but the show's not designed for it

In "Aquarius," David Duchovny plays an LA cop in 1967 with old-school hair and old-school values. Asked to find a teenage girl who has vanished into the city's hippie underbelly, he reluctantly teams with a shaggy-haired young cop with crazy new ideas about civil liberties and equality. Very quickly, then, the series sets itself up as an ideological  clash between the veteran and the rookie, even as they collaborate to find the girl and potentially put a charge on the charismatic guy named Charles Manson who has her under his sway.
