In a new interview with The New York Times, David Simon, creator of HBO's Greatest Television Show Ever Made (according to some, anyway) The Wire, does something that has become frustratingly commonplace: alienate the people who have, in essence, determined his show's artistry.

Foolish April has arrived, meaning it's the last big month for shows to open on Broadway before all-important Tony eligibility closes for the season. Here are the shows that are worth dropping a hundred dollars to sit in the dark.

Last night was the 1980s music-themed episode of American Tune Farm, a vaguely depressing night always.
Apr 4, 2012 6:02PM ET
Today: Jimmy Cameron's done it again, Bravo unveils even more new shows, and Ryan Seacrest's announcement is kinda boring.
Apr 4, 2012 5:03PM ET
If Us Weekly's sources are correct (and, really, when are they ever wrong?), three of Saturday Night Live's biggest stars might be leaving the show at the end of this season.
Apr 4, 2012 10:21AM ET
It went on for weeks. We told no one our quiet weird secret. But now it's been months, whole seasons have changed, so it just needs to be said: We've seen every episode of ABC's Once Upon a Time and we are hungry for more.
Apr 3, 2012 5:13PM ET
Today: A Quality TV victor has been decided, a gang of British teens snubs the White House, and some exciting theater news.
Apr 3, 2012 11:02AM ET
Whiling away the hours before another grim episode of Smash last night, we went against our better judgment and watched a two-hour episode of The Voice.
Apr 3, 2012 9:26AM ET
Today: Levi has done it for the second time, billionaire Ron Perelman has for the eighth, and Steve Urkel is overcome with emotion
Apr 2, 2012 6:09PM ET
Today: Ryan Seacrest has an announcement, Katy Perry has announced her latest dropping, and Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels may be teaming up again.
Apr 2, 2012 4:15PM ET
This weekend HBO released the first trailer for its upcoming series The Newsroom, an Aaron Sorkin drama about the behind-the-scenes controversies and shenanigans at a cable news network. And it struck us as immediately familiar. Isn't this just a tweak of the setup for Network?
Apr 2, 2012 11:24AM ET
Today: Kate Winslet analyzes Leonardo DiCaprio's looks, Bruce Willis is a dad again, and the Spice Girls musical is in trouble.
Apr 2, 2012 10:38AM ET
Amid a night of overstuffed night of television yesterday (Game of Thrones! Frozen Planet! Teresa Giudice's Business Revenge!), one show began its second season with a busy whimper while another ended its own on a satisfying, almost stirring note.
Mar 30, 2012 6:28PM ET
Today: Josh Hartnett is looking for a comeback, Damon Lindelof defends a bad ending, and MTV is keepin' on keepin' on.
Mar 30, 2012 4:51PM ET
Game of Thrones is the ultimate example of what premium cable can do — it's as lavish and ornate as it is brutal and shocking. Your schedule may be crowded, but this is must-see TV of the highest order.
Mar 30, 2012 2:41PM ET
Today we review two new movies based on old stories, the Snow White tale Mirror Mirror, and the Greek myth reimagining Wrath of the Titans.
Mar 30, 2012 11:18AM ET
Another one bit the glorious glitter dust last night, amid all the usual pomp and questionable circumstance. It was actually a somewhat scary bottom three, which will be a more and more frequent occurrence as the weeks wear on and our tributes begin to suffer from exposure. It's a grim business!
Mar 29, 2012 6:36PM ET
Today: Sally Draper is growing up, Ben Affleck steps in for Tom Cruise, and everyone's favorite show is renewed.
Mar 29, 2012 4:16PM ET
In what is probably the biggest news to hit dorm room halls since two girls came out of that dude's room that one morning, Will Ferrell has announced, in character on last night's Conan no less, a sequel to 2004's sleeper hit comedy Anchorman. Yes, ladies and gentlemen, we may be at the beginning of nostalgia for the 2000s.
Mar 29, 2012 12:29PM ET
PBS has released ratings information for the most recent season of hit show Downton Abbey, the British import about post-Edwardian servants and masters swanning about a country estate, and, unsurprisingly, it's a big ol' hit with women.
Mar 29, 2012 11:31AM ET
Last night was a very emotional night at the ol' Idol song hut, with more than one tribute reduced to tears and everyone singing very intensely. They are starting to feel it, aren't they? The sharp potential for crushing defeat, the ever-brightening hope victory.
Mar 28, 2012 6:16PM ET
Today: Bravo is putting more stuff out into the world, Matt Weiner puts together a movie, and J.Lo's new show is in trouble.
Mar 28, 2012 1:58PM ET
Food Network personality Sandra Lee, queen of semi-homemade recipes and ornately revolting cocktails, is trending right now, largely owing to a hilariously snippy interview that ran in last Sunday's New York Times.
Mar 28, 2012 10:30AM ET
Facing a pretty quiet Tuesday night of television (what is it with Tuesday nights?) last night, we decided to go ahead and watch the first episode of ABC's upcoming comedy Don't Trust the B---- in Apartment 23.
Mar 27, 2012 6:41PM ET
Today: NeNe Leakes' career is booming, Chloe Moretz is about to do something terrible, and Jane Fonda will of course play a Republican hero.
Mar 27, 2012 10:44AM ET
Perhaps the most brutal, most shocking thing about The Hunger Games is not the squalid conditions of District 12, not the callous monsters of the Capitol, not the pile of dead children lying in a field.
Mar 27, 2012 10:15AM ET
At the tail-end of last night's mostly ridiculous episode of Smash there was a scene that, dare we say, bordered on, like, good. Not The Wire good or anything, but definitely campy dramatic good. It was quite refreshing.
Mar 26, 2012 6:15PM ET
Today: Justin Bieber's new song sounds awfully grown-up, ABC Family makes a big buy, and Will Ferrell is trying to get his kid into college.
Mar 26, 2012 4:25PM ET
It is no longer comedians who parody candidates. People who work for actual politicians, or at least work for well-funded groups that support said politicians, are mounting their messages on platforms that look, at mildest, like any number of bitchy social media pages, and at most extreme like something straight ouf of Tim & Eric.
Mar 26, 2012 10:49AM ET
Last night, after a nearly two-year wait, AMC's sad but glittery crown jewel Mad Men returned for a fifth season. So how did the premiere measure up against all the aching anticipation? Pretty well, we'd say.
