    I want to see a kid contestant cry if someone loses on The Price is right in mid-April. :-(

  2. Laura says:

    Love Eric Mabius and can’t wait to see him on Scandal! I’ve missed seeing him on TV regularly since Ugly Betty ended.

    • april-ann says:

      I just came on here to say those exact same things! I’ve missed seeing most of the cast of Ugly Betty and I think we just don’t see enough of them. It was such a sweet, touching show and they were all so great in their roles on it. Can’t wait to see Eric Mabius. Too bad it’s just a guest spot.

  3. Anita says:

    I haven’t been keeping up with Californication this season, wonder if it’s worth it to see Jorge and Maggie again…

    • This season (at least so far) is back up to par. I’d argue that the last episode before last was the best of the series, but maybe that’s because I was spastic at the site of Hollywood Forever Cemetery and the idea of a holographic, dead, and British Sebastian Bach.

    I hope Eric Mabius gets a regular TV gig soon. I miss him! He will also be appearing on an upcoming episode of Blue Bloods. He’s such a handsome and likeable actor.
