NEW YORK, Nov. 11, 2016 — Pretty dull week, wasn’t it? Just kidding. Appropriately, three out of five of this week’s TV blogs were about aspects of the presidential election.

Read them here — along with two others: A review of “Downton Abbey” star Michelle Dockery’s dreary new drama series on TNT called “Good Behavior,” and a very personal message from a journalist (me) to the community of TV publicists.

Just follow the links, below:

Monday, Nov. 7: Clinton Spot Says Trump Is Coarsening America, But That Ship Has Sailed

Tuesday, Nov. 8: To Paraphrase J. Peterman On ‘Seinfeld,’ Thank You For A Job … Done

NEW YORK, Dec. 31, 2015 — This week’s TV blogs wrapped up the year with a look at the worst shows of 2015, and a rundown of the revered TV legends we lost during the year.
