america’s top tv critic matt roush answers your burning questions

@TVGMMattRoush We really enjoyed Elementary—Jonny Lee Miller is the best Sherlock Holmes ever! We’re sorry to see that it’s over, but we liked the way the last episode ended, and it seems like it may have left the series open for more episodes should another station or cable channel opt to pick it up. Any chance that may happen? Maybe some two-hour movie specials? —Rich MATT ROUSH: Sometimes we should just be thankful for a happy ending. When Sherlock and Watson (Lucy Liu) headed back to the NYPD to offer their services, with Sherlock noting, “As long as we’re together, what does it matter?” the implication is that, while the show may be over, their exploits continue. There are no plans to continue the series, and Liu has already booked another TV…

COVER LOVE I am a huge fan of PBS’s Poldark and have written to TV GUIDE MAGAZINE in the past questioning why it receives so little attention. Thank you for making up for that by putting the fabulous Aidan Turner on your most recent cover [August 19]! I am sad that Poldark is ending, and I hope that we will see more from Aidan Turner in the future. —Robin HAPPY CUSTOMER We have been subscribers for a long, long time, and I decided to write and tell you how happy we are with your magazine.

the brady bunch comes home

WHO WANTS TO play ball in the house? The grown-up Brady Bunch kids and HGTV’s top designers have completed a massive renovation of the home seen in the ABC sitcom’s opening shots—just in time for the 1969–74 TV classic’s 50th anniversary. Originally, the private residence provided the exterior look of the Brady place; the interiors (plus the faux-grass backyard) existed on Stage 5 at Paramount Studios. Now, for better or worse (depending on how much you like orange and avocado!), the ’70s decor and architectural elements have been re-created inside. And in this functioning replica, even the toilets work! See how they did it in HGTV’s new series A Very Brady Renovation, starting with a super-sized premiere (Monday, September 9, 9/8c), then three weekly hourlong episodes plus a holiday installment.…

3 THINGS TO KNOW ABOUT DOG’S MOST WANTED DUANE “DOG” CHAPMAN, who spent four decades hunting bail jumpers—a perilous way to earn a living that was chronicled on A&E’s popular Dog the Bounty Hunter and CMT’s Dog and Beth: On the Hunt—is back on the trail! In WGN America’s Dog’s Most Wanted, he’s cuffing some of the country’s most dangerous fugitives, and he’s searching with more conviction than ever. Keep the following in mind. 1Higher stakes mean better equipment. Chapman’s targets include elusive names on any police blotter (“We’re going after people accused of sexually assaulting children or attempted murder,” he says), so the old dog is using new tricks. Drones and night-vision equipment come in handy in the premiere episode’s search for a criminal with 68 counts against him (including domestic…

america’s most watched 25 top shows

BH9021-Oh, No! Fox’s reunion/revival, featuring the original Beverly Hills, 90210 cast (including Jennie Garth and Tori Spelling, above) playing scripted versions of themselves as they try to reboot the old soap, is losing luster after a promising start. Here’s how total viewers stacked up after three episodes: August 7 3.9 million August 14 2.5 August 21 2.2 Remembering Patrick Swayze Two million viewers had the time of their lives on August 18 watching Paramount Network’s I Am Patrick Swayze (viewership includes an encore showing on Paramount and a simulcast on sister network TV Land). The documentary celebrates the life of the Dirty Dancing and Ghost star (above, in 1989’s Road House), who died of pancreatic cancer in 2009. It was the most watched personality-themed doc of 2019 in total viewers, besting National Geographic’s March 3 airing…

meet fall’s memorable characters

@TVGMMattRoush WADE. DEX. BUMPY. Miles 1 and Miles 2. You haven’t met them yet, but once you do, I’m betting these and a few select other characters might join your ever-expanding TV family. The fall season may now just be part of a never-ending continuum of shows premiering year-round on a ballooning and mystifying array of platforms. Yet there’s something about the tradition of settling in for a new batch of fall television—on familiar and newfangled networks alike—that piques our curiosity about who’s worth getting to know. A sampling of my early favorites: THE HEARTBREAKER Just try to resist Wade Felton, the hero of CBS’s charming comedy The Unicorn. Better known for playing TV villains in shows like The Shield and Justified, Walton Goggins reveals a disarmingly appealing warm side as a…
