    Nikita! I hope the ratings pick up. The story for this show is far from completed to be canceled.

  5. Forwarders says:

  6. colossus says:

  9. Renee says:

    I didn’t realize Grimm wasn’t on tonight. Bummer.

  10. sarah says:

    Seriously no mention of Blue Bloods which is WAY better than Gifted Man
    I think it sucks that CSI NY is getting a short season….

  11. Ali says:

    No question about it. Every Friday @ 9pm is the celebration of Fringe Friday. :)

  12. opus says:

    Why Why Why did CBS move A Gifted Man to 9? Nothing worth watching at 8 now IMO. Will watch FRINGE and MERLIN live and dvr A Gifted Man.

  13. meggo says:

    I may get blasted by this but I actually really enjoy A gifted man. I understand it’s probably getting cut, but man I really like it! I know the main premise of the show is that his ex wife “visits” him from the dead. but the show could be stronger without her showing up. it seems like they are using it as a crutch because it was what the show was about. but I think they could do without it and it would be fine!

  14. jess says:

    Yay for Merlin! My only must-see for Fridays.
    Patrick Wilson is certainly nice to look at, but A Gifted Man is not.
    I’ve been catching up on Fringe via my dvr; great season!

  15. mh says:

    Nikita 4 me. My friday is all about Nikita. Come on people start watching

  16. marci says:

    It’s Nikia for me and love the show it has alot to offer and want a Season 3.

  17. G says:

    Only Nikita and Star Wars the Clone Wars for me tonight. Time to clear up some other shows from the DVR tonight.

  18. jl says:

    Last Week’s Merlin was great .. looking forward to another battle and butt-kicking!! Morgana is hot!

  19. ? says:

  20. Justin says:

    Fringe, Nikita, Blue Bloods, and Merlin are on my must-watch list tonight.

  21. peter says:
