    Oh Jason, no. Go back to Curb! Network TV doesn’t appreciate you anymore!

    I’m glad to see Billy Miller get some primetime work. I thought I read awhile back that Michelle Stafford was gonna do a guest spot on Ringer as well. Is there some sort of Ringer/Y&R connection?

  3. I can’t wait for the Good Wife to come back. I love that show. I hope she gets together with Will this season. It’s like it almost happens then it doesn’t. Can;t they just spit it out and tell each other how they really feel. What’s stopping them now? She’s not with Peter and Will’s gf is in London working on the Olympics right!!
