TV Critics: New Year, New Shows

Jan 3, 2014

The new year brings a clean slate, fresh resolutions ... and new TV shows. Among these freshman programs, there might be a couple that will get us through the chill of winter. 

Greg Kinnear heads the cast of the American remake of 'Rake.'

On Friday's Up to Date, we look at these offerings from the networks and from cable. Join us as we check out the story of a former beauty queen turned Texas Ranger and the American remake of an Australian dramedy.
