  • Yes it’s a crime that Fox canceled a show that got lower numbers than a House rerun! How dare they cancel bad shows no one watched!

    • Not sure if serious, but this one is probably a House-fanboy/girl.

      I should never had went to Fox. FX should have aired it.

  • You probably shouldn’t credit someone as being from a show that aired only two episodes… Its like referring to Courtney Cox as “the chick from that Springsteen video.”

  • As the gang said to Penny in the season opening, you gotta stop with the amahzing already! I love HE and I love that you guys give it so much coverage but every single story you post has “amahzing” in it. It’s over. Let it go.
