    The Lying Game

    raising hope repeat and revenge on netflix

  4. Alex says:

    Tonight’s lineup really stinks due to the State of the Union crap. Cable for me, then. Dog show and Lying Game.

    • Jay says:

      Here’s an idea! The oscars are coming up. Run down to the video store and pick up something that’s nominated. When the show happens, you’ll know who to root for!

      • Britta Unfiltered says:

        oooh, good idea. I’ve been trying to watch them all, but I’m still behind. I’m just not sure I can do Amour, Skyfall, and Les Mis. But Anna Karenina is next on my list to see. I was going to add to this suggestion that people could rent Moonrise Kingdom to see it’s fantastic Oscar-nominated screenplay (that really should win, but probably won’t.) Or go to the movies and see The Impossible for Naomi Watts’s impressive Oscar-nominated performance. :) That is a good movie! Django Unchained, Lincoln, and Silver Linings Playbook are all still in theaters and are really good too.

  5. Tran says:

    Pretty Little Liars only for tonight.

  6. Bill Looney says:

    Definitely not the State of the Union.

    • Elyse says:

      why does it have to be on all the major channels?!

      • Angela says:

        Because it’s an important address, perhaps?

        • Sonia says:

          Is it really that important? The President is going to tell everyone what they want to hear and we will be able to get all relevant information in it online.

        • fedfan81 says:

          It does not need to be on all the major networks. We have 400+ news channels for a reason. No one is going to watch just because its the only thing on, they will go online or watch a movie!

          • Drew says:

            It is on all the major networks because he is our President and he is addressing the nation, simple as that. Obviously, it’s not compulsory to watch it, but you really shouldn’t bitch about it because it’s what separates us from dictatorships like North Korea, and this is exactly what our troops are fighting and dying overseas for… “The American Way Of Life” remember???

          • Angela says:

            Except that not everyone has 400+ channels, and the president addressing the nation is generally kind of something that will need to air in a way that will reach as many people as possible. No, not everyone will watch it, but it makes sense that they will broadcast it on the major channels. You know, like they’ve done every single time the president holds a national address, with each president we’ve had in the time the major channels existed. This isn’t exactly a novel move, putting it on the main networks.
            @Sonia: Yeah, it is still important. Again, not everyone can access the information that way, and you never know what information the speeches will contain. It might be stuff people want to hear, it might not be.

          • fedfan81 says:

            And I’m going to assume that all of you watched the whole state of the union address? Not just the daily show highlights? Give me a break, perhaps a ten percent portion of the population watched it and understood it.

      • AmbidextrousAspie says:

        Oh, poor you, your fictional shows are off for a night. How will you go on?

  7. Elyse says:

    Pretty Little Liars and the Lying Game for me! :)

  8. Lillian says:

    Definitely watching Justified tonight.

  9. Liz says:

    Cougar Town!

  10. Len says:

    Read a book.

    • Jay says:

      Anybody remember when they made books from TV shows? Star Trek made hundreds of them. That’s the perfect thing for a site like this to encourage.

  11. rmcepp says:

    Love JUSTIFIED, love Raylon, love Elmore Leonard

  12. Lady V says:

    The Face, then Downton Abbey on demand

  13. The Beach says:

    “Boyd and Ava work to break into Harlan high society”….anyone who has ever been to Harlan knows how funny this line is…should be good for a laugh.

  14. Renee says:

    “Purebreeds (with bigger hair/styling budgets than some basic cable shows) strut their stuff.”

    Hey now. Some of these dogs are a lot more entertaining and have more talent than those cable shows so they deserve the bigger budget. Just saying.

  15. Britta Unfiltered says:

    Justified!! I want to see the cowboy!

  16. Nicole says:

    Pretty little liars
    The lying game

  17. Kat says:

    Why would anyone pass up watching Justified to watch State of the Union. Same old crap every year. Who cares?
