    Dallas and DVR The Exes.

  11. Rock Golf says:

    Why would Justin Bieber & NBC conspire to get “Girlfriend” stuck in your head, when his current single is called “Boyfriend”?

    • O'Brien says:

      I wish they were conspiring to get “Girlfriend” stuck in myhead instead – easily one of the best songs of the boy band era (*NSYNC > BSB).

  12. Justin says:

    Royal Pains and Necessary Roughness for me.

  13. tp says:

    Necessary Roughness for me.

  14. bbbbbb says:

  15. What!?! No ‘So You Think You Can Dance’ Vegas round??? (But the Soup isn’t as good since it moved to Wednesnight.)

  16. Angela says:

    Looks like “The Soup” is the only thing on my list to watch from that lineup.
