    I have already seen the Haven 2-part finale. It has been online since the beginning of the new year. It was interesting, wonder when season 4 will debut. Oct?

    How is Haven on Thursday now?lol

    • tvdiva says:

      The decision was made to move the finale to today due to the Sandy Hook tragedy. If it was on tomorrow, it would have gone head to head with the two hour Fringe finale.

  6. Nicole says:

    I hate that both of these shows are on at the same time. I like both.

  7. Ty says:

    Those of you who record Haven should know that Comcast has the 8pm episode as a repeat…you might want to double check your DVRs.

    Can’t wait to see Anger Management tonight. From Two and a Half Men I would love to see Jake, Herb, Berta, Alan etc.all go over to appear on Charlies show.

  14. Britta Unfiltered says:

    So Fx is going to shove 90 episodes of Anger Management down people’s throats, and then it’s going to make me wait until summer 2014 just to see 13 episodes of Louie?
