ABC's premiering "Wasteland" is the cratered moonscape of the new season. A series as bad or as barren has yet to air. Talk about bipolarity in prime time. Kevin Williamson, whose Fox series "Dawson's Creek" is about teenagers who think and talk like adults, this time delivers a drama whose mid-20ish characters think and sound like teenagers. Dumb teenagers.

There are few words to describe the awfulness of "Tamara," but let's try these: dismal and utterly lacking in any artistic or social merit, other than the filmmakers' skill at conning someone into letting them commit this mess to celluloid. The title character (played by Jenna Dewan) is an "ugly" girl. This, in the language of teen flicks, means she is a sexpot whose sexpotness is masked by stringy hair and a few pimples.

In Fox's bloody new drama "The Following," Kevin Bacon plays one of the more oft-used characters in thriller fiction. Alcoholic and emotionally detached, his character is former FBI agent Ryan Hardy, who has never quite recovered from his dance with the devil. Once upon a time, Hardy was the lead agent on a string of grisly murders at the fictional Winslow College. When he first encountered Joe Carroll (James Purefoy), he too fell under the charismatic English professor's spell, using him as a source to help unravel the literary clues left at the crime scenes.

It's the sound most have learned to ignore when she's around. Where there is Julie Plec, the co-creator of "The Vampire Diaries," there's a near constant hum - a sort of real-life soundtrack that rivals the intense, forlorn music on the popular CW teen drama. It's in play at this moment. The bubbly TV show maker, surrounded by text-loaded whiteboards, is working on an episode of "Vampire Diaries" spinoff "The Originals" at the Hollywood offices of Plec's production company My So-Called Company.
