I really enjoyed this article in the most recent EW. ┬áThere are so many shows that can fall under the umbrella of “Disappointment TV” for so many different reasons - shows like “Smash” that have great purposes but don’t *fit* on TV, and shows like “Scandal” (*gasp*) - for me at least - who’s promos are so overly dramatic and build up a ridiculous amount of expectations - to which I always seem to be let down. ┬áNot to mention the social media hype that just doesn’t seem appropriate.
