  • I just don’t know if I want to watch Grey’s Anatomy live or not, if the person who I think is going to die does indeed die. Not that it’ll come out any differently, it’s just that I’m supposed to be off for vacation tomorrow, and I’d rather have to merely read the confirmation in a single sentence than have to watch it for now, because it’ll be even worse watching it.

  • I forgot to mention DVR POI :-). The Mentalist is also DVR + watching. I have enough episodes to see me through Summer until I get my next DVD.

  • What’s with the hatred CBS seems to have for Rules of Engagement? They keep kicking it off and replacing it with crap, only to realize they have to bring it back. And now they’re doing it again by putting Two and a Half Men in their time slot next season. What gives? All I can say is I better not be cheated out of the birth of Jeff and Audrey’s baby.

  • I hope that we get a satisfying ending for Missing, so sad that they cancelled it.

  • 30 Rock and Awake! I hate to see that ending. :(

  • If they killed Mark Lexie or Callie im never watching Grey’s again. I like April and Arizona but both are fairly new and it would suck but it wouldnt be the end of the show for me. Teddy i could care less about im kinda hoping its her she really wouldnt be a huge lose for the huge they could always get Cristina a new mentor and Teddy storyline have sucked
