The TV Squad Team Gives TV Some New Year's Resolutions

Idris ElbaWe've reached the time of year when people talk about all the ways they're going to change in the new year. They want to lose weight, swear less, spend more time with friends, etc. But we all know what happens to New Year's resolutions... they're usually broken or discarded by the time you trudge to work after the holidays are over.

So the folks here at TV Squad decided to do something a little bit different; for the most part, instead of giving ourselves resolutions to follow, we've decided give the powers that be running the various networks our wish list of what we're looking to see on TV in 2011. We're very generously giving our resolutions over to the TV folks, hoping to benefit the greater good of TV fans anywhere. If any of these come to pass, you'll know who you can thank.

TV Worth the Effort in 2010

by Stephanie Earp, posted Jan 6th 2010 12:07PM


Be warned - I'm starting the New Year with a cold. A cold that prevented me from properly introducing 2010 to my friend Stella Artois, and a cold that prevented me from enjoying my favourite Christmas gift - a trip to the big city to see the ballet - and it is a cold that is even now preventing me from breathing, speaking and sleeping peacefully.

Which basically means I am one cranky TV columnist.

My intention this week is to discuss the TV-related New Year's Resolution. For some it is a 'more-and-bigger' proposition, like my neighbours, who scoured the Boxing Day sales for a massive flat-screen to replace their large flat-screen. But for most of us, it is a 'less-and-better' motive that drives us to promise ourselves that this year we will watch only quality programming, and only for two hours a week, and only one night a week, because we'll join a book club, a gym, an internet dating service, whatever.

What I've been thinking about is this: what is good television?

Do you have any TV New Year's Resolutions?

Bob Newhart ShowIt's that time of year when I ask you what your resolutions are. Not your general resolutions, I mean your TV-related ones.

Looking over last year's list, I actually did pretty well. I didn't watch American Idol, I gave Jimmy Fallon and Conan O'Brien a chance even though I wasn't sure if either of them would hold my interest (for the record, Fallon has and O'Brien hasn't), and I am trying to record more late night shows so I'm not up until 1:30 a.m. every single night. As for catching up on Fringe, well, that resolution I haven't kept.

Here are my resolutions for this year. What are yours?

What are your TV New Year's resolutions?

Every year around this time we all make our New Year's resolutions. We're going to lose weight, stop smoking, not bite our nails, be nicer to each other, make more money, and generally become the most perfect, awesome people in the world. It doesn't usually work out, of course, and we're forced to come up with more realistic resolutions ("I cut down on the number of mocha lattes I have each day from 5 to 4!").

But we can make TV resolutions too. Here are mine.
