  • How the hell us Three and a Half Men still on?

    • 2.5 Men is still on because it’s sitting between better shows and 2.5 Men turns in some good episodes (e.g. Ferrets Attack!).

    • Never can figure what comments like this accomplish, when facts (ratings) are facts, sad as they may be. Unless its just to give the person an air of “superiority”.

  • “Joan’s time with Sherlock is almost up, so he offers her an apprenticeship. But will she stay…?”

    Well, there’s a real edge-of-your-seat cliffhanger. If she doesn’t accept the offer, then there’s no Watson for Holmes – show over.

  • For me, Person of Interest is the best drama on TV, and I’m so glad it can hold it’s own, and then some, since it gets absolutely no recognition or promotion at all…not from CBS, who put it out there to fend for itself while CBS promotes every other program it has…not from the media or ANY of the entertainment mags. I look every week for the particular guide book I get to see if there are any articles about POI or where they stand in the ‘What’s Hot’ section of the mag….WHAT!! POI isn’t even listed, except in the Nielsen Ratings at the very front of the book and POI is ALWAYS at the very top. To top it off…POI is not even up for any awards in any of the award shows that are coming up soon..I wonder who makes up the ballots. Someone needs to wake up and give this show and it’s actors the recognition they so justly deserves.
