    The Following
    And Revolution in March xD.

  2. madbengalsfan85 says:

    Bones…been anticipating this episode for awhile now

  3. Patti says:

    Bones – this sounds interesting for Temp
    GH – excited for Laura’s return and GH going back to the 70s and 80s fantasy element. Just wish they had not messed with Port Charles’ Rafe&Alison in doing it.

    • karen says:

      yes to both statements! would like to add, bring Jason back.

      • Bob says:

        Sorry, but Steve Burton is too attached to Jill Farren Phelps, which is why he left GH and popped up on Young and the Restless. GH has gotten magnitudes better since they canned her and Guza as head writer. Too much mob crap.

  4. Brandy says:

    Switched at Birth,Bunheads,Carrie Diaries,2 Broke Girls,90210

  5. paul says:

    What no Dallas Scoop?

    • Katie says:

      Agreed!!! Give us some Dallas deets!!!

    • TV Gord says:

      Spoiler alert: J.R. plots to undermine Pamela, forcing John Ross to make an uncomfortable choice. Christopher is scrambling to keep a deal alive that could put the future of Ewing Energies in jeopardy. And the reason for the spoiler alert, Cliff is back tonight, and he’s meeting with someone unexpected! My guess? He has a history with Judith (Judith Light)!

  6. bigdede says:

    I’m so over Luke and Laura. Luke looks too old for Laura now. And after the whole Stefan and his “Lasha” storyline, I just can’t get with Luke and Laura. I loved Stefan and Laura. At least we will see Elizabeth since these stupid idiot writers refuse to write for her but we have to witness Sabrina the Teenage Twit everyday. Give Tracy a man who will respect her.
    Hawaii 5.0 will be canceled soon. Summer Glau is guest starring and she is poison.

    • Tran says:

      I think Hawaii Five-O is here to stay because the ratings continues to get even better on a Monday night going up against Castle in the same time slot and Revolution will indeed return in just 42 days.

    • Tori says:

      I totally agree,can’t stand Luke with Laura at all. Stefan was the only real man for her,he loved her unconditionally no matter what she did and would never leave her not like Luke who always left when things didn’t go his way. He treated Laura horribly during that storyline and trashed her son Nikolas for a long time and Stefan loved Laura and her children and everything was for her. Luke is about himself. Praying they bring back Stefan Cassadine/SN and Laura is finally given a real romance with a real man!

  7. Gillian says:

    So happy to see Genie Francis and Kin Shriner return to GH! Thank you, Cartini, for bringing back so many GH favorites.

    • karen says:

      happy, too!

    • Tran says:

      I really didn’t like her Y&R character several months ago but I’m happy Genie Francis aka Laura Spencer is finally coming home to Port Charles on GH. Please reply if you guys didn’t like her character on The Young and the Restless

  8. Tran says:

      Going to watch General Hospital this afternoon. Looking forward to Laura’s return. I’m not a huge fan of the Vampire story, but it could be because I never saw Port Charles.

  26. nick1372 says:

    Monday Mornings

  27. tp says:

    What is with all these shows going one minute over? It’s just enough to mess up my recording options.

    • Drew says:

      I know! That drives me totally nuts, too, because it sometimes makes it impossible to record something because my DVR won’t record 3 things at the same time, so, if one show goes over by one minute, it messes everything up! Arrrgh!

  28. sandy holl says:

    Bones’!!! This is going to be great!!!

  29. voxpop81 says:

    BONES & FOLLOWING always + inside comedy
