    • Anna says:

      I know! I’m so addicted to Rookie Blue it’s ridiculous but it’s also light enough that I don’t really miss it during the year. I can’t wait for May 24th!

    • Ginger says:

      I am so excited about the return of Rookie Blue! It’s my ‘guilty pleasure’, and I can hardly wait!

  2. KBC says:

    So ABC premieres Duets the night American Idol announces their winner? Interesting.

  3. stacey says:

    Hmmm… Lionel, Kelly and Robin on a talent show to find new singers. Now I get why they were featured on The Voice as “coaches”. They were getting tv exp. For their own show!!

    Excited for the return of Rookie Blue!

  4. juan says:

  5. Nikki says:

    SO excited that Rookie Blue is coming back May 24th!!!! Early this year which makes it even better! Cant wait to see whats in store for Sam and Andy!!

  6. mika says:

    I didn’t realize that Extreme Makeover was coming back. I loved that show last year. Very inspiration and Chris Powell is a hottie.

  7. Mary says:

    I’d rather have Once Upon a Time shown from the beginning over the summer instead of Secret Millionaire.

  8. Danielle H says:

    UG I wanted some scripted fare.. sigh… nothing to watch on ABC this summer then.

    • Ryan says:

      Rookie Blue is scripted and pretty entertaining. Plus, the cast is a smorgasbord of attractiveness so it’s perfect for summer.
      I swear if they mess up Andy and Sam I will be… sad. They’re an amazing mess of a couple and so fun to watch!

  9. 42foxfire says:

    No Once Upon a Time? No point in watching ABC.

  10. Jenn says:

    YES Rookie Blue!!! I can’t wait!
