Honourable Mentions: Scott Stinson’s fall TV scorecard
After a fall season in which the most successful new show involved the reunion of Simon Cowell and Paula Abdul, perhaps it is not surprising that among the Top 5 programs in the first week of December was an airing of Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer. Three other Top 5 shows were related to NFL football. As a species, we are creatures of habit. Herewith, a few awards (both deserved and dubious) for this fall’s TV season.
