  13. StupidPeopleShutUp says:

    Millions of fans CONTINUE their boycott of ABC primetime because of their disgusting handling of their dayrime programs. Three million viewers are a lot to lose.

    • lumpy87654 says:

      Soaps don’t get the ratings to justify their cost anymore. Start learning Spanish because in the not too distant future if you want Soaps you’ll have to watch Telemundo.

    • DIO says:

      AMEN!!!!! I’m still SO BUMMED over the canceling of One Life TO Live, didn’t get the pay-off that I waited for for six and a half years which was the wedding of Natalie & John! BUMMER! I only watch GH, fast forward scenes with John & Sam, she needs to be with Jason even when he goes on hiatus, she has to stay home with the baby. John, leave Sam alone!

    • Drew says:

      What’s also a shame about the loss of the soaps is that they were a great source for up-and-coming young actors, like Brad Pitt, for instance, to get their start, get some exposure on-screen, and now that’ll be gone!

    Himym and 2 broke girls

  15. Brandy says:

    Switched at Birth,Gossip Girl,2 Broke Girls,90210

  16. rebecca says:

    DWTS for 1 reason only, my girl crush Kelly Monaco. Go girl!!

    • Kirstie Alley has to do the Charleston tonight, everyone should watch.

      • Uh….yeah….mmm-hmmm….we all “should watch” that. What kind of loser sits glued to DWTS, seriously? I’m mystified.

        • Deg says:

          I’m with pantheralumguy… mystified as to why anyone would watch dwts. (doesn’t deserve upper case) and even more mystified as to why anyone would admit to looking forward to watching.

          • Judy says:

            I agree … dwts has absolutely nothing to do with dancing

          • Lola The Show Bear says:

            Um because this is a tv site where people can safely talk about the shows they like, and not some dumb fraternity where you can only watch sports and NCIS or else get bullied.

        • Drew says:

          “What kind of loser sits glued to DWTS”??? Hey, you behave yourself and be nice and respectful of others in here. Different people watch all kinds of different shows and there’s NO need to ever call anyone a “loser” because of what they watch, got it? For all you know, some of us might think that YOU’RE a “loser” because of your favorite shows, too! So, shame on you! Seriously, don’t do that again!!

          • Lola The Show Bear says:

            Yeah, that was pretty ridiculous. It’s far superior to all other live competition programs. And I’m pretty sure it does have to do with dancing, because the celebs have to learn a dance every week (duh). Judy is probably just bitter that her boring SYTYCD is always on the bubble while DWTS can entertain people who don’t like that elitist, contemporary crap.

  17. GK says:

    Revolution and Castle!!

  18. madbengalsfan85 says:

    Broncos-Chargers on ESPN

  19. Jason says:

    What am I missing? Can someone tell me how you find one ounce of humor in 2 Broke Girls? I’ve tried watching the show…I love comedy…and this is some of the worst acting and writing on primetime TV. CBS should be utterly ashamed. Can we possibly bring back King of Queens reruns? Anything!

  20. G says:

    HIMYM, DWTS, and H5O.

  21. Jared says:

    90210 & 2 Broke Girls for me.

  22. Kat says:

    So happy to hear Major Crimes has been renewed! It’s turned out to be a good evolution from The Closer. Mary McDonnell and the writers have done a great job of “fleshing out” her character and it makes it more believable – after all, in real life bosses do change, and her outlook on the job presents a different perspective – yet still gets the job done – maybe even more effeciently!

  23. JP says:

    H50, despite the return of Steve’s mom.

  24. Sheldon W. says:

    Alphas and Castle are my must-sees. Revolution lost me before the end of the first act of the second episode.

    I’ll record Major Crimes and 2 Broke Girls.

  25. bobbie says:

    Gossip Girl, Castle, Revolution

  26. Isabelle says:

    The Voice, DWTS,Mike and Molly, and Hawaii Five 0 for me this Monday

  27. mary says:

    How about Haven and Alphas,Revolution. So many good shows this season

  28. Trish Pfaff says:

    Watch Castle, Dvr Revolution, and on demand Hawaii 50, then Alpha

  29. Trish Pfaff says:

    Forgot to mention Major Crimes

  30. CDevene says:

    THE VOICE is must see! Otherwise, we boycott NBC due to their blatant political bias and lousy programming practices… cancelling good dramas after 3-5 episodes.
    CASTLE (ABC) at 10pm. Then ALPHAS (SyFy) and MAJOR CRIMES season finale (TNT) late night encores.
