    No Necessary Roughness tidbit? They found a body and Dani/Nico might finally be happening! I find that this information definitely deserves a tidbit. Although this website does seem to have something against the aforementioned TV show.

    Futurama? Does anyone really still watch that?

  4. TMW says:

    Tonight’s Big Brother will contain one of the greatest game moves in its history and it didn’t rate a mention? Shame on you.

      Allison Grodner will come out and say she is no longer going to dictate who she wants to win. Also Julie Chen will finally be ashamed of how she can be a host to a show on a network that her husband runs, and how it turns out the same stuff for going on close to 10 years.
      If my wife financed a show that produced the same stuff for this long of a period, I would be embarrassed. But paying minimum wage to production people will probably get you these tired results.

    I want to see Paul Ryan’s speech at the National Republican Convention. Then Royal Pains and Necessary Roughness.

    Watching ABC comedy repeats and/or America’s Got Talent, and saving Melissa & Joey for later.

    I hate celebrity judges on SYTYCD!!

    • I hate most of them too. I think of the guest judges Jesse Tyler is probably the most amusing and Christina Applegate the most informative. If they have Toni Basil on again I may riot though.

  10. SYTYCD, Royal Pains and Supernatural…. I know, I’m weird.
