NEW YORK, July 24, 2015 — Not bad for a week in midsummer: This week’s TV blog topics ran the gamut from “Sharknado” to Donald Trump. In between: A look at Jim Gaffigan’s new TV Land sitcom, an assessment of Caitlyn Jenner’s new transgender reality series on E!, and a much-deserved dismissal of MTV’s dreary (and lame-brained) “documentary” on race, “White People.” Read all five of my MediaPost TV blogs from the past week, with these links:

NEW YORK, July 17, 2015 — This week, the MediaPost TV blog ranged from Denis Leary’s new rock ‘n’ roll comedy on FX — “Sex&Drugs&Rock&Roll” (I didn’t like it so much) — to “Driving Miss Daisy,” starring Angela Lansbury and James Earl Jones (I liked this very much). In between, two posts this week attempted to gauge the impact of Caitlyn Jenner on the rest of us, and one post reviewed “Tut,” the Spike miniseries that starts Sunday.

They were all part of the wide world of TV this week. Read all five of my MediaPost blogs from the past week, with these links:
