Ratings: Star Trek: Discovery's Special CBS Premiere Draws 8 Million Viewers

‘Star Trek: Discovery': 5 of Your Biggest Questions Answered
Major spoilers for “Star Trek: Discovery’s” first two episodes. “Star Trek: Discovery” always had a lot to live up to. It’s the first new “Star Trek” TV show in over a decade, so it has to be both a new take on the franchise and a tribute to the original series. There’s over 50 years of canonical history to pick and choose from, but how do you do it without outright copying a previous installment, especially when the J.J. Abrams films have been just that? As the flagship product for CBS All Access, the network’s new streaming service, »

TV Review: ‘Young Sheldon’ on CBS
“Young Sheldon” is earnestly trying to do two things at once: function as a mainstream family comedy, and fit into the realm of single-camera half hours, which tend to be a bit more character-driven than most shows on CBS. “Young Sheldon,” which depicts “The Big Bang Theory’s” Sheldon Cooper as a precocious 9-year-old in East Texas, doesn’t quite gel in either arena in its initial outing. But the premise and a few performances are interesting enough to give the show some time to find its way.
Without question it was the right decision to avoid the multi-camera format with this project. The Sheldon that TV audiences have come to know over the course of 10 seasons of “The Big Bang Theory” can be a difficult person (which is partly the hook of both shows). Despite the fine work of Jim Parsons as the adult Sheldon, the physicist — given his genius Iq and his unwillingness to conform »

TV Review: ‘The Brave,’ Starring Anne Heche, on NBC
“The Brave” is a by-the-numbers hybrid of two of three very familiar drama formulas. A few sentences at the start of the drama more or less position it as the military-intelligence version of “Law & Order,” perhaps one that could replace the famous “thunk-thunk” with the sound of gunfire or explosions.
Intelligence analysts, “The Brave” informs viewers, are the ones who assess risks to Americans and their interests; Special Forces soldiers are “tasked with eliminating” those threats. The difference is that the hour is not split between those two teams, as is the case with classic “L&O.” The units work together on “The Brave,” and their time-sensitive tasks feature the usual array of maps, drones, gunplay, urgent conversations and undercover spy work.
The opening hour hits a number of story points that have been done better elsewhere (notably on “Homeland” and “Rubicon,” among other dramas). An American woman has been taken hostage, and »

Megyn Kelly Draws Criticism for Awkward Gay Joke About ‘Will and Grace’ Fan on Talk Show Debut — Watch
Former Fox News anchor Megyn Kelly is off to a rocky start of her new morning talk show, “Megyn Kelly Today,” after making an off color remark to a “Will & Grace” superfan. During a segment with the “Will & Grace” cast, Kelly surprised audience member Russel Turner by asking him up the stage to meet Debra Messing, Eric McCormack, Sean Hayes, and Megan Mullally. Kelly asked him: “Is it true that you became a lawyer — and you became gay — because of Will?” Turner responded graciously with humor: “I look at Will Truman, I’m like, ‘He has it made’: lawyer, best apartment in New York City, and gay? Come on, trifecta.”
Before Turner left the stage, Kelly added: “I think the Will & Grace thing and the gay thing is going to work out great!”
