Emily Nussbaum Wants You to Watch The Middle, Hate-Watch Cougar Town


By now, you've surely bookmarked Surf, the terrific (and still new-ish!) blog written by New York television critic Emily Nussbaum. If you haven't, well then, you're missing out on excellent posts like the one in which she makes a case for watching The Middle, that new ABC sitcom starring Patricia Heaton that hasn't been marketed particularly well but is actually worth your time. Or the one where she (sort of) makes the case for hate-watching Cougar Town, which is a show that we're still kind of trying to figure out our position on, too. [Surf]
