by Danny Gallagher, posted Mar 31st 2010 7:30PM
The Peabody AwardsThe Peabody Award winners were announced today and they included their usual mix of enlightening documentaries and popular favorites, both of which are equally worthy of recognition.

This year's list didn't have many fictional shows, but the one's they picked more than made up for their absence. ABC's 'Modern Family' and Fox's 'Glee' both picked up awards, the only two sitcoms on the list. HBO's 'No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency' and 'In Treatment' were also the only dramas on the list.

Other notable winners include 'The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson' for his sit-down with Archbishop Desmond Tutu, HBO's documentary 'Thrilla in Manila,' PBS' 'Frontline' for their stirring report on Bernie Madoff and '60 Minutes'' expose on "The Cost of Dying."

Peabody Awards Honor 'Glee,' 'Modern Family'

GleeDon't stop believing, 'Glee' fans: It seems that critics and awards bodies are every bit as hooked on the show as the rest of us, with the prestigious Peabody Awards the latest in a long line to honor the musical dramedy.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, 'Glee' was one of 36 outstanding series, documentaries, websites and news reports that the distinguished group spotlighted as the best in electronic media for 2009, during a ceremony held at the University of Georgia's Grady College of Journalism and Mass Communication on Mar. 31.

Other Peabody winners included ABC's hilarious sitcom 'Modern Family,' HBO's taut therapy-session drama 'In Treatment,' and 'Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson,' which was described by the board as "a talk show without borders," for its Desmond Tutu edition.

DGA Nominations for the best in TV in 2009

by Allison Waldman, posted Jan 12th 2010 1:41PM
mad_men_finale_amcThere's been so much action going on with the TCA and the midseason returns and what-not that we sort of missed the announcement for the DGA Outstanding Directorial Achievement in Television nominations for 2009. It's quite an interesting bunch, as much for what and who's included and who and what were left out.

Since the DGA noms come from the directors themselves, these awards are indicative of what the professionals really think of their peers. Very illuminating, if you ask me. Check it out, category by category, and feel free to comment on my comments.

DGA Announces TV Nominations

by Adam Keleman, posted Jan 8th 2010 4:05PM
GleeFriday morning the Director's Guild of America announced their picks for the best directed cable and network TV shows in 2009.

Among the list there were several surprises, including nominations for many newcomers to the '09 TV schedule, namely 'Modern Family' and 'Glee'. We're also glad to see many prominent critical faves like 'Mad Men' and 'Curb Your Enthusiasm' well-represented on the list again for stellar seasons.

NBC's quality comedy programming was clearly snubbed, though, taking home nilch for such Awards-show staples as '30 Rock' and 'The Office'; even a greatly improved 'Parks and Recreation' got no love.

After the jump you'll find the list of the TV DGA nominations.

Golden Globes 2010: Best TV Drama Series Odds

by Gary Susman, posted Dec 14th 2009 10:00AM
Don't expect a whole lot of drama in the race for Best Drama Series at the Golden Globes. It would surprise no one if last year's winner, 'Mad Men' (pictured, right) repeats as a nominee and even as the eventual winner. Last year's nominees all have a similarly good shot at being recognized again when the nominations are announced on Dec. 15.

The Front Runners: 'Dexter,' 'House,' 'In Treatment' and 'True Blood,' all nominated last year, have a strong likelihood of returning.

Characters Who Need Therapy From 'In Treatment''s Dr. Paul Weston

by Jason Hughes, posted Nov 27th 2009 6:00AM
In TreatmentWe're thrilled that HBO has renewed 'In Treatment' for a third season. In two seasons, it has proven to be one of the most compelling experiments in dramatic television. A lot of that has to do with the stellar -- and Emmy-nominated -- work by Gabriel Byrne, who plays psychotherapist Dr. Paul Weston.

The show was based closely on the Isreali series 'Be Tipul.' That program only lasted for two seasons, which means that season 3 of 'In Treatment' will be its first foray into wholly new territory. To this point, much of the dialogue, relationships and all of the patients were based on their Isreali counterparts, with minor variations. Now, the writers will be taxed with creating everything from scratch.

With that in mind, we decided to help out by scouring through the channels to find 10 television characters who desperately need treatment from Dr. Weston.

HBO booking a third season of In Treatment

by Jason Hughes, posted Oct 25th 2009 9:03AM
In TreatmentIt looks like HBO is so in love with Gabriel Byrne's turn as Dr. Paul Weston that they're willing to go into uncharted territory with him. While the Isreali series BeTipul, on which it was based, only went two seasons, HBO has ordered a third round of In Treatment.

This is significant because the series remained incredibly faithful to the original series through both of its first two seasons. For this new third season, the writers will have to create all new patients, stories and drama for our beleaguered psychotherapist. Gabriel Byrne is already attached to continue his role, of course. It wouldn't be a show without him. I hope they can secure Dianne Wiest again as Paul's mentor and therapist, Gina.

TV Squad Ten: My favorite HBO shows

by Jane Boursaw, posted Sep 29th 2009 11:11AM
True Blood - Anna Paquin and Stephen MoyerHBO has slowly become my favorite network over the past few years. I don't know if it's because the mainstream networks have turned to lots of reality programming or what, but HBO just seems to get better and better. Just about every show on the premium channel is feature film quality (if not better), and I've got some favorites listed below.

I know I'm missing a few biggies, like Rome, Deadwood, Flight of the Conchords, and Extras, but it's only because I either haven't watched these shows or have only watched a few episodes -- not enough to make an informed opinion. I'm sure they'll make my Jane After Dark column at some point in the future. So I hope you'll tell me your favorites in the comments below.

In Treatment writer bringing Worthy new political drama to FOX

by Jason Hughes, posted Sep 1st 2009 1:33PM
In TreatmentSome shows are known for amazing acting, and some for stellar writing. In Treatment falls into the latter category, though the acting was top-notch, as well. Still, in essence the show was a one-room nightly play. It was simply dialogue between two to four actors. And It was riveting.

Davey Holmes won a Writers Guild Award for his work on that series. He was nominated for Pushing Daisies, a series with a completely different tone, and yet equally brilliant writing. He's also written for Damages and is involved in the forthcoming Happy Town for ABC.

Based on the strength of his script, Holmes has secured a pilot commitment from FOX for Worthy, a proposed series that would put the network dramatically into politics. The series follows a straight-arrow Arizona politician, named Worthy, who finds himself in trouble after he's in a hit-and-run and winds up blackmailed by the mob.

In Treatment has taught me that I wouldn't make a very good therapist

by Jason Hughes, posted Apr 28th 2009 3:38PM
In Treatment
I've been watching In Treatment since the first season. At first, I was intrigued by the format (five half-hour episodes each week), and then I got into therapist Paul's story and the sagas of his various patients. The show is, if possible, even better this second season but it's also shown me that I absolutely could not be a therapist. His first patient each week this season is Mia, a former patient who alternates between flirting and intentionally antagonizing him.

She's illegally looked at his legal documents, ignored his policies and rules, pushed him around and been so alternately pissy and clingy you'd think she was bipolar. And somehow Paul sits there as calm as can be, and you know she's driving him crazy underneath. It's a tremendous acting performance by Hope Davis, fully embodying this tragic and tortured soul. It's becoming almost difficult to watch, there's so much "crazy" in the air you never know how she'll react to anything Paul says.

In Treatment returns with a screwed-up schedule

by Jason Hughes, posted Apr 4th 2009 10:00AM
Gabriel Byrne in HBO's Last season, Gabriel Byrne, Dianne Wiest and Blair Underwood lead an amazing cast in one of the most daring new projects on television: HBO's In Treatment. For nine weeks, the show aired virtually every night in half-hour installments. Gabriel Byrne was the constant, therapist Paul Weston, and each show featured one of his therapy sessions with a different patient. And with the sessions each happening Monday through Friday on the same day the show aired, the progression of the show felt like real time.

Which is why I don't get HBO's move to jigger with the schedule for the second season of In Treatment, starting this Sunday. Now, instead of getting one session per day throughout the week, we're getting two back-to-back episodes on Sundays starting at 9/8 Central and three consecutive installments on Mondays starting at 9/8 Central. Their reasoning for this change: they found that people tended to watch the show in clumps anyway, so why not air it like that? But honestly, it's so much more intimidating this way. When it's only 30 minutes each night, it doesn't feel like much, but now you're looking at an hour and a half on Mondays!

What to Watch Weekend April 4-5

The Tudors'The Tudors'
(Sun., 9PM, Showtime) 3rd season premiere
It's going to be quite a busy season for Henry VIII (Jonathan Rhys Meyers), as he begins his ill-fated marriage to Jane Seymour in tonight's opener, but rumor has it, will end the season with a wedding to wife number five, Catherine Howard.

In between, there's the birth of Henry's son, the future King Edward; his short-lived fourth marriage, to Anne of Cleves (Joss Stone); and Henry's particularly brutal – more than 200 executions, including those of monks and priests – squashing of the Pilgrimage of Grace.

Plus, look for downfall of Henry's chief minister, Thomas Cromwell, whose fall from favor is swift, and harsh, after Henry's marriage to Anne of Cleves.
