Our TV Wishlist For 2013
A second season renewal for Ben and Kate!
I initially wrote off Ben and Kate as another kind-of funny premise comedy choosing to use a precocious child for quick laughs. I was part of the problem, not the solution, because Nat Faxon is the key to this comedy, despite the cute presence of Maggie Elizabeth Jones. Just a few episodes in, Ben and Kate has found the comfortable rhythm most shows donít settle into until a few seasons in. Sandwiched between Raising Hope and New Girl the show is the perfect transitional half hour, and it deserves a second season to see where its family dynamics can go. - Jessica Rawden
-For Nassim Pedrad to get more starring sketch roles on SNL.
-For Nicki Minaj and Mariah Carey to be a total, gut-wrenching disaster on Idol and for viewers to not be able to tear their eyes away from the screen.
-If ABC picks up one of its million (actually 4) cop comedy projects, that it doesnít suck and ruin the idea of cop comedies for another half a decade.
-For Project Runway to stop doing All Stars seasons. Too soon.
-For Syfy miraculously to bring back Battlestar Galactica: Blood & Chrome as a TV series. Because seriously, itís awesome.
- For The Following to be as good as it looks.
-For True Blood to remind me why I started watching in the first place.
