    • what’s wrong with Last Resort and Person of Interest and “BURN NOTICE”

      Sunday night is the night to watch shows DVR because nothing is on unless its a football game that is a good match up otherwise worst night on TV, since Boarwalk Empire is done for the season

  • I pray they don’t ruin this Kurt and Blaine “reunion”. It needs to be just as friends and Kurt needs to be the one to say that, not Blaine.

  • am I the only one that thinks what doesn’t work on “Up all Night” this season are the changes they tweaked from last season, specifically Reagan’s mountain man of a brother, has he never heard of a shave? why did they cancel the Ava show, it actually gave Maya Rudolph something to do. And Baby Amy is adorable and I really want to see this show last enough to see her grow a little.
