    Not surprised about The Neighbors. It looks awful.

  2. Emily says:

    When I saw a report that said the 7th season finale was titled “Lethal Injection,” I flipped out. Sept. 30 officially seems centuries away.

  3. april-ann says:

    Not surprised at all about BatchPad’s ratings going down. I can’t imagine what they were thinking when they decided on some “fans” being on instead of former contestants. From coast to coast, the continent must be littered with sleazy castoffs from that cheesy show who would be happy to degrade themselves in exchange for a few more “seconds” of fame.

  4. ed says:

    happy about suburgatory, it deserves it.

  5. Danielle H says:

    Dean Cain still works? Wow. Cool..?

  6. jared says:

    ABC will be airing repeats in The Neighbors timeslot before November.

  7. Sara says:

    Can we please stop with the quotation marks around brother in Dexter articles? He was legally adopted as a toddler and considering the age difference between him and Deb, he’s been her brother pretty much since she was born. It’s not like he was the next door neighbor and “like” a brother to her or something.

  8. Meg says:

    VH1 should really stop with the scripted series. I finally gave up on Single Ladies (I have a really high threshold for horrible TV).

    Each promo for Dexter makes me less and less excited for the show….how is that possible????
    We all know Deb won’t turn Dex in, so there goes that cliffhanger, so either A) she’ll be an even bigger idiot and accept that somehow he set up this ritual killing, at an active crime scene…groan….he even lit a candle……as a one time thing or B) and the most likely, she’ll have to fight herself over whether her love….double groan…..will let her accept this side that she always suspected he was hiding, oh and her daddy issues will come right up, since Henry knew about it. Either which way it seems like bad fanfiction vs the Dexter we have come to love.
    Deb learning about Dexter was always going to need to happen, but this way, with this story line? Heck if it was the Luna one, I think the drama would of been more interesting. Like, if she did let him go, but then something caught her eye that made her realize it was Dexter, since she was already complicit before she knew who she was letting go or she decided, I don’t know, to be a cop and investigate her hunch or something…..
    I think, I’m going to wait to see if the show is worth coming back to, so tvline, I want unbiased reviews on the episodes, as soon as they air :D
