    So glad Private Practice is on tonight! Feels like forever. I hope the ratings pick-up in the new time slot. I need a sixth season! :D

      THIS! I’m thrilled to have some to watch on Tuesdays now, instead of everything being on Thursday and Monday for me. I really hope the show goes on, because I enjoy it even more then GA anymore.

  2. alikatster says:

    so glad private practice is back. don’t understand how it will help ratings in the new slot, when i think most grey’s watchers were fans…. makes no sense. i think scandal should have been put here.

  3. Heather says:

    So happy that Private Practice is finally back tonight! It does feel like it’s been forever since we last had a new episode. I really hope everyone follows it to this new time slot. I’m not horribly worried about renewal but it has been on my mind a lot more lately. I really want to see a sixth season of this great show. =)

  4. sweetdayo says:

    Nothing for me tonight… i do not watch any of these shows.

  5. Melanie says:

    Finally Private Practice is back! I will follow it to Tuesday but will miss it being back to back with Greys!

  6. Jeff says:

    Please watch Cougar Town tonight! Even if you DVR it, watch it tonight! Everything counts these last few weeks. For a bubble show like CT, watching tonight vs. the weekend could make or break the show.

  7. kirads09 says:

    NCIS, otherwise DVR catch up.

  8. noneofyourbusiness says:

    Tuesdays used to be the best night for TV.. not any more…

    Glee does disco.. again.. c’mon ! Time to put this turkey out of our misery.. have a final show where they win nationals and then we can all get on with our lives

    • Cody says:

      Glee has never gone disco before. There might have been a disco song, though not one I can remember, but they’ve never done a disco episode.

    And NCIS didn’t warrant a mention? Gotta see the Kid from Baltimore episode…everything else (save the Amish show) I won’t bother with.

  20. Justin says:

    Just NCIS and Cougartown for me tonight.

  21. DTP says:

    NCIS and Ringer – eagerly anticipating the finale!

  23. Britta Unfiltered says:

    Awww, Matt, you make me fall in love with you when you recommend NatGeo documentaries. That one sounds pretty interesting too.

    I was so happy to see ABC airing a Cougartown promo during DWTS last night. I hope that means they are not giving up on the show getting another season. “Who’s Alice Cooper? Is she pretty?”

  24. CJ says:

    Kate Walsh has dead eyes. She always looks like she took too many Valium (at least in photos).

  25. I thought Audra McDonald would be appearing as a guest star this season. The season’s almost over but no news about her appearance.

  26. juan says:

    I really hope that PP does great in the new time slot, its been great this year. Also Cougar Town which is my favorite comedy so good night.
