    ABC sitcoms, then SVU. That’s how it’s been all season.
    Next season, with SVU moving up and “The Neighbors” looking absolutely terrible, “Modern Family” might have to take the hit and get DVRed for later.

  2. annie says:

    Revenge. That would be enough.

  3. Toms1€ says:

  4. Jeff says:

    Modern Family. Everything else is crap

  5. jesse says:

    All ABC for me, 8-11.
    Plus, SVU.

  6. Loni says:

    So excited for Revenge! I’d be more excited for American Idol if any of my faves (Ellice, Hollie, Skylar) were still in it, but should be a good show regardless.

  7. Justin says:

    Modern Family and Don’t Trust the B—- in Apt. 23 for me tonight. I will also try to see America’s Best Dance Crew. Mos Wanted Crew is my favorite to win the whole thing.
