    I saw this at Barnes and Noble today.

    It's a slick, "Entertainment Weekly"-style magazine devoted to TV. The premiere issue has Matt LeBlanc on the cover. It has news, reviews, interviews all pertaining to TV.

    After a quick browsing through it:

    Plus: nice looking, full color, heavy weight
    Minus: tries a little too hard for that "Maxim" look, needs to be a little cleaned up.

    Plus: lots of easy-to-read articles
    Minus: no really in-depth articles

    Plus: weekly breakdown of shows to watch, with reviews on most and a bit more in-depth than EW does

    Plus: reviews actually have "cajones"! only 2.5 stars for "Joey", and several 1 star reviews (new John Goodman show, for example)

    Plus: TV on DVD section!

    Plus: nice coverage of lesser cable/satellite channels that EW doesn't usually cover: Trio, Noggin, etc.

    Minus: $3.49/monthly schedule

    Overall, a pretty nice magazine, with lots of potential. Just needs a little more focus and "tweeking".
