Imposters' Season 3 finale will satisfy, even though it wasn't designed as a series-ender
Discussing their Bravo drama's cancelation, co-creator Adam Brooks says he and fellow co-creator Paul Adelstein were "really happy that it doesn’t end on a certain kind of cliffhanger. That would be very frustrating for the audience. What happens in this finale with the Doctor, it does feel like the end of a certain part of our story. There is a certain kind of closure in all of that. And what’s left open, I think, can leave a lot to your imagination. I just saw the final (episode of The) Americans, where they don’t close every loophole, dot every I, cross the T’s. So I think it was an accident, but it worked out well that way."

Why Bravo's Real Housewives of the 1960s is a bad idea
"First of all, who wrote this, Don Draper?" says R. Eric Thomas of Bravo's new Real Housewives spinoff, which is being described as an "imaginative docuseries." "Literally none of this sounds good for anyone involved. Did some people have a good time in the Sixties? Sure probably. Quincy Jones. Do a series where everyone has to live their life like Quincy Jones and I'd watch. Real Housewives of 'You Like Brazilian Music?' Instant hit. But to pretend that this was the 'ultimate era' for anyone, particularly the American Housewife, is just bonkers."

Bravo's Southern Charm and Vanderpump Rules are the anti-romance reality shows, says Kareem Abdul-Jabbar
The NBA legend/pop-culture columnist/Dancing with the Stars competitor explains: "While The Bachelor franchise peddles rose-colored romantic fantasies of happily ever after, Bravo’s Vanderpump Rules and Southern Charm deliver the down-and-dirty daily lives of the messy quest for love, lust and shabby fame; in other words: what really happens in millennial relationships after the meet-cute fades. What they reveal about their attitudes about romantic relationships may be the most honest, heartfelt and horrifying of any of the reality shows."
