Good TVeets

Read from the bottom up after the jump.

I liked the original British "Episodes" better.

Developing story: Bill O'Reilly outraged.

Every week I watch The Good Wife and I think, "Damn. How is this on CBS?"
theonetruebix The One True b!X
At this point, based on clips released so far, I have to ask: is Portland as god awfully annoying as is #portlandia's humor about it? (And I won't even mention the latest #portlandia clip ending with pedestrians being hit by cars. Oh, wait. I did.) And I don't mean I find #portlandia's humor annoying because it's poking Portland. I find its approach to humor inherently grating. Because I'm not really sure the point of comedy is to make me want to punch the comedians in the face with a brick. I miss the days when sketch comedy knew what was three-minute bit and what was just a 30-second, or even 5-second, bit.

Much like Nixon, Damon Lindelof is really thriving as an elder statesman.

Sigh. I remember when we denied being a sci-fi show, too. http://bit.ly/gCNJTl

I'm fairly convinced Dick Wolf fired all these people from #LOLA just to remind us that #LOLA still exists.

In my estimation, less Skeet Ulrich is always a recipe for improvement. http://j.mp/gFkMU3 (via @televisionary)
Seriously, how the hell did Adebisi get that stocking cap to stay on the back his head?
RowanKaiser Rowan Kaiser
One hour to go before No Ordinary Family. That means it must be whiskey o'clock. … Wow. So far all four of the plots on No Ordinary Family are dumb. That's...probably a bad sign.
JustinFowler Justin Fowler
And now a story about man who held a group of children hostage. *Serious face.* #localnewslivetweeting

Dear Tyler Perry, I hope you are watching #TheGame to see how a true comedy is suppose to be done.
BrentPiaskoski Brent Piaskoski
Me unfollowing my wife because she was tweeting too much about The Bachelor, will be the funniest thing I ever do. #sadbuttrue
Memles Myles A. McNutt
Man, this episode of #Parenthood is deep. I'm going to be up all night wondering what my shoes are thinking.

tvoti Todd VanDerWerff
Press stills from the next to last FNL make me want to cry. This is not going to be good.

The answer to "Where is the remote?" is ALWAYS "Under the cat." Always. Without fail.

chutry ChuckTryon
just realized I'd never heard the theme song to Two and Half Men before...that might be the most awful sound I've ever heard

benfritz Ben Fritz
Just watched an SNL skit. Just like last time I tried one a few years ago, I regretted it
corybarker Cory Barker
You guys, this case is for all the Tostitos. And Cary is hungry.#TheGoodWife … Problem with using the Tostitos joke: Makes me hungry for Tostitos. Touche, Frito Lay. Touche.
BrentPiaskoski Brent Piaskoski
Justin Bieber to reprise role on "CSI" in February. Me to reprise the tweets I had about it in February.

tvoti Todd VanDerWerff
There is a version of myself that would watch Off The Map weekly. It's not a very big version, but it's there.

Ugh, NBC's new show "The Cape" is shoved so far up Batman's ass you'd think it was Superman.
zhandlen Zack Handlen
Finally watching THE CAPE. I do like how every scene so far plays it belongs in a "PREVIOUSLY ON" montage. ... I really hope this show lasts long enough for us to get the inevitable musical episode. #TheCape

Sample conversation starter on Twitter: "Isn't Glee TERRIBLE?" Sample conversation starter at TCA: "Isn't Glee GREAT?"  
tvoti Todd VanDerWerff
Sure, I could GET a Glee football, but whatever would I DO with a Glee football? #tca

Finally, a big laugh in the "Breaking In" panel as the cast explains uses for clean urine. Yes.
tvoti Todd VanDerWerff
Christian Slater is sure having fun with this session. Glad someone is. #tca
mikeylikestv Michael O'Connell
How many times must Christian Slater greet this room to tepid applause before he gives up on TV altogether? #TCA
BCBenGrossman Ben Grossman
If a show is judged by how much critics at #tca like an exec producer, Fox's Traffic Light would be DOA. He talks alot and the room is dead.
BillBriouxTV Bill Brioux
"Core value" and "denouement" used by showrunner in Fox's "Traffic Light" comedy panel. This show is so doomed. #TCA
HitFixDaniel Daniel Fienberg
"Fun and comedy is the core value of the show." - Hemingson says. Good when comedy is a core value of a comedy.
ApocalypseHow Rob Kutner
ABC says it wants to put the Incredible Hulk on TV. Without revealing too much: Best. Season of 'The Bachelor.' Ever.
marisaroffman Marisa Roffman
Bob Fisher thinks he's being long-winded while talking to the #TCA. Apparently he hasn't heard of Oprah-gate.
sepinwall Alan Sepinwall
We've spent 1st 5 minutes of "Traffic Light" panel discussing the cast's height. Not a good omen - and I'm usually obsessed with height.
HitFixDaniel Daniel Fienberg
"Traffic Light" is one of my 3 favorite new shows about young white couples with 1 minority friend.
HitFixDaniel Daniel Fienberg
Nobody has yet asked Jason O'Mara if he's fully recovered from his outer space gene hunt. GENE HUNT.
tvoti Todd VanDerWerff
How involved is Steven Spielberg? "He's very involved! ... We wait for his feedback on all aspects of the show." I'M SKEPTICAL. #tca
HitFixDaniel Daniel Fienberg
On one hand, the "Terra Nova" team is raving about their research. On the other, they're discussing making up dinosaurs.
tvoti Todd VanDerWerff
In Terra Nova, the Earth has died, so they're sending people up to fuck up the planet even earlier than we did in this timeline. #tca
moryan Mo Ryan
Just saw short sneak peek of #TerraNova (Fox, 5/23). Looks like a mixture of JurassicPark, Avatar & SwissFamilyRobinson. No blue people tho.
BastardMachine Tim Goodman
Just saw the Terra Nova clips. OK, I'm in.

The "Raising Hope" baby wasn't at breakfast this morning. I'll try to interview her at the party tonight.
BastardMachine Tim Goodman
"Wait until I knock back a few tonight and then we'll get into it." Reilly when asked to name his "stupid" network competitors.

BastardMachine Tim Goodman
"Are they stupid? Some of them are." - Reilly on producers/networks trying to knock off his shows.
thefutoncritic thefutoncritic
FOX at #TCA: "[They'll] just make GLEE look that much better," Reilly says about the various knockoffs in development at the competition.
tvoti Todd VanDerWerff
"I don't believe for a second all the great shows are on cable," sez Reilly. OK! (Pssst ... they are!) #tca
JimHalterman Jim Halterman
#PeterRice assures the roomful of critics that what we say matters.#ComingInFromTheLedge #fox #tca
sepinwall Alan Sepinwall
Rice: "You say your reviews are meaningless. They're really not." Awww... we love you too, Peter.

Reilly says the cost of pilots has crept up. Pilots are expensive. #noshitsherlock #FOX #TCA

My next question: "If Lone Star had been an animated series about dogs, but you had aired it after Bones, would it still be alive?" #tca
marisaroffman Marisa Roffman
Another #LoneStar question. I think at this point there have been more questions about it than viewers who watched.
noelrk Noel Kirkpatrick
@tvoti I have a question about Joss Whedon...
tvoti Todd VanDerWerff
Look, I liked Lone Star too, but I don't know why we're still talking about it. Let's ask about Arrested Development next. #tca
TVGuideHanh TVGuidetHanh
Can we let this die now? "The truth is it failed. It failed to meet expectations we had." #Lonestar #FOX #TCA
rcatlin Roger Catlin
Fox exec Kevin Reilly jokingly tries to spin the flat fall: Things looked good among women 12-14 who enjoy musicals, he pointed out. #Glee

BastardMachine Tim Goodman
Fringe on Friday: "I beg you to not write the eulogy prematurely." - Reilly.

Query: If talking about love is like dancing about architecture, what is reading about "American Idol"? Just to clarify: Previous tweet NOT directed at TCA. Directed at book about American Idol I was just reading. Seriously! Promise!
sepinwall Alan Sepinwall
JLo gives a disapproving look when she learns that FOX has supplied us all with dishes of candy.
BastardMachine Tim Goodman
Btw, this room is packed. ABC, this is how it gets done.

New Idol judge Steven Tyler just talked about his pet raccoon. In unrelated news, what is the point of existence? #TCA #Fox
franklinavenue Michael Schneider
OK, I'm now sold on wacky Steven Tyler as an Idol judge: "I'm from the Bronx. Yonkers is where I got my pet raccoon." #tca
realityblurred Andy Dehnart
"What kind of outfits are we going to see from you?" someone asks J Lo. Hopefully they won't be as shitty as this question.
BastardMachine Tim Goodman
When this session is over, I'm going to turn on my iPod and let real music cleanse my ears, brain and soul.
BillBriouxTV Bill Brioux
Wait a minute--Stephen Tyler's meds just kicked in. If they can keep this guy away from rehab we might still have a show #TCA
danielletbd Danielle Turchiano
Will the winner be a boy or a girl? Steven jokes a crossdresser. Randy adds "Sponsored by Ryan." Seacrest rolls his eyes. #FOX#TCA
EricIGN Eric Goldman
He did indeed. Now I'm gonna watch! RT @tvoti: I think Steven Tyler said he gets to sit "between" Jennifer Lopez. Awesome. #tca
realityblurred Andy Dehnart
Steven Tyler watched J Lo in The Back-Up Plan and thought, "I want to sit next to that" because of her "vulnerable side." He wasn't kidding.
sepinwall Alan Sepinwall
Steven Tyler explaining he wanted to work w/JLo b/c of how great she was in "The Back-Up Plan." Seriously. This was said.
thesurfreport Surf Report Di
I think Ryan Seacrest is happy to work with J.Lo so he can borrow her blouses. #kidding #sorta

sepinwall Alan Sepinwall
Ryan Seacrest just said "placenta" three times in a row. I'm afraid of what will appear in the sky now.
BastardMachine Tim Goodman
When someone asked Seacrest why he still looks so young, he said "placenta." When people looked puzzled, he said "placenta." OK then.
BillBriouxTV Bill Brioux
Idol is dead. There was more energy and tension at the Men of a Certain Age panel #TCA
BillBriouxTV Bill Brioux
Zzzzzz. Simon used to tell the truth at these TCA things (and on the show), not say stuff like "we're going to take it up a notch" #TCA
danielletbd Danielle Turchiano
Randy Jackson attempts a joke calling the TCA the TSA. It does not go over well. For the record, I don't want to stripsearch him. #FOX#TCA
BastardMachine Tim Goodman
A more "assertive dog" is coming this year says Randy. "A little less yo's, a little more no's." I just threw up in my mouth.
vulture vulture
When asked if there would have to be a 5-second delay for Steven Tyler, Tyler responds, "Fuck no." #tca
danielletbd Danielle Turchiano
Journo calls her "Ms.Lo" Then realizes she has a longer last name. #ouch #FOX #TCA
realityblurred Andy Dehnart
Idol hair update: Steven Tyler, J Lo's hair considerably different today, making it easier to tell them apart.
danielletbd Danielle Turchiano
Randy Jackson, JLo, Steven Tyler & Seacrest will be sitting  together on stage. I'm legitimately concerned about what's about to happen.#TCA
HitFixDaniel Daniel Fienberg
This is the first day of TCA Internet complaints since Day One. Have we forgotten the coalminers? #blacklung
EricIGN Eric Goldman
The hotness of Jennifer Beals is brought up by someone asking a question. All agree with the hotness. #ItsTrue #TCA #ChicagoCode
HitFixDaniel Daniel Fienberg
Shawn Ryan whips out an Alexis de Tocqueville reference, which is probably why we like him.
sepinwall Alan Sepinwall
"We couldn't use 'jag-off' and we couldn't use 'asshole,' but we could use 'jag-hole." -@shawnryantv on broadcast language standards.
tvoti Todd VanDerWerff
Right now, @sepinwall and @HitFixDaniel are energetically dueting to "Better Man." They're either in love or trying out for Idol. #fox #tca

HitFixDaniel Daniel Fienberg
Singing along to Eddie Vedder and eating pigs-in-a-blanket? It's gotta be a FOX TCA day...
