    • Degrassi’s first 2 episodes back were very good. Its awesome that we get 4 episodes a week. Here I am, 28 years old, and still enjoying Degrassi.

  • Royal Pains for me :) just wish Evan drop Paige and see Divya different …Yes, I am a Divya and Evan shipper <3

    • I’ve wanted them to go there with Evan and Divya since season 1.

    • Evan and Divya? You’ve got to be kidding?!! They are complete opposites who’ve almost never seen eye-to-eye on anything. There’s no romantic connection between them as far as I’ve seen, and there never should be. Evan and Paige, to me, make 100 times more sense than Evan and Divya. Heck, the very idea of pairing Evan and Divya together sounds ludicrous!

    • I thought forever that they were gonna go with Evan and Divya.. but now I think the writers have totally gone away from that.

  • Will watch GH sure do miss OLTL but very glad Kassie is coming on just wish they would put her on contract. She can fly back and forth to NYC. I agree with someone else I love Royal Pain and I too wish Diviya and Evan would hook up. :)

  • Why is everyone everyone misspelling Cramer? Is it intentional for some reason? One of those stupid mashup names (that I can’t stand)? A few people, I can understand, everyone (except story author Kimberly Roots) is spelling it incorrectly. :-/ What’s up with that?

    Comment by TV Gord – July 18, 2012 12:28 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • Big Brother, SYTYCD, Watch What Happens Live

    Comment by Amanda – July 18, 2012 03:50 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • Dallas is fantastic!!! Great writing, great actors and actresses, tons of drama!!! It has given me back what ABC took away with dropping AMC and OLTL. Let’s say I totally miss them, but this show is great. It kicks reality tv’s butt!! Good writers are out there and Dallas has them. Tune in, you will not be disappointed.

  • Dallas is excellent! Just as good as before. Also love General Hospital and Royal Pains.

  • I love that Kassie is back on #GH! Looking forward to see what she has to tell Todd-probably not a good thing :)

  • I was really hoping that Tomas (Ted King) would be with Blair. He has always been one of my favorites. Very handsome!
