Wilfred Ends After Four Seasons
Wilfred, a delightfully surrealistic sometimes-stoner comedy about a man (Elijah Wood) and a dog (Jason Gann in a dog costume), came to an end this week.

Late Night Hosts Remember Robin Williams

Chasing Life Ends on an Excruciating Cliffhanger
ABC Family’s cancer drama has steadily improved, although it’s still been pretty bland.

Heartbreakers Is Just as Cheesy as You’d Expect
Investigation Discovery’s Heartbreakers is true crime as pure camp. The show is aware that the main reason people tune in to true crime is to laugh at the awful reenactments. Taking that idea a step further, Heartbreakers employs popular ’80s and ’90s stars, like Kevin Sorbo (Hercules) and Judd Nelson (The Breakfast Club) as reenactors. It’s so bad and so brilliant.
