Portrait of James Poniewozik

James Poniewozik

James Poniewozik is the chief television critic for The New York Times. He joined The Times on Sept. 8, 2015, and that same night wrote an overnight review of Stephen Colbert’s debut on “The Late Show.” Since then, he has written reviews and essays with an emphasis on television as it reflects a changing culture and politics. His exploration of streaming television argued that services like Netflix represent not just a new delivery system and business model but a new genre of art.
