    • Depends on where you live. If your (in this case) CBS affiliate has a deal with the ACC Network, you’ll get the first day of the ACC men’s basketball tournament instead of regular CBS programming for the weekend.

  • Watch Beauty & the Beast live (we’ll see Ty Olsson’s guest appearance this week and next, as well as the start of Sendhil’s regular role), and later catch up on Person of Interest.

  • I have an Anger Management question as I have never watched, but is everyone on the show named after people in Charlie Sheen’s life? Does it make it easier for him to remember his lines and story lines? His dad is Martin right? And Sam is his daughter? I just think it’s funny because maybe this plot happened in actuality.

  • Take note if you live in certain areas of NC: The brilliant minds that work at the local CW affiliate have decided to show a stupid basketball game instead of The Vampire Diaries. The NEW episode of TVD won’t be shown until Saturday. STUPID. STUPID. STUPID!

  • Has anyone else seen the third sneak peek for Vampire Diaries? First off, yay, Matt’s in it. I’d read elsewhere he wasn’t going to be in the the next three episodes, which really bummed me out.

    And secondly, without her emotions, Elena apparently acts just like Abed.

    (Here in Alabama, TVD is also preempted for basketball. Struggling to contain my rage.)

  • Why is the CW even bothering to show a new episode of Beauty and the Beast when all of these cities aren’t going to be airing it until midnight tonight or days later? You would think that the people who decide these shows’ schedules would pay attention to these things, especially when your shows are as ratings challenged as those on the CW. Tonight’s episode sounds like it is going to be really interesting and romantic too with the introduction of the new ADA and the fairy tale-like masquerade ball.

  • Very pissed that I have to catch TVD and BATB on Saturday . Will have to bookmark the recaps and avoid spoilers. Stupid Big 12 tourny is on in my area. They were orginally airing them at like 1AM but moved em to Saturday. I hope this isn’t an error and that they actually play them or Imma be severely pissed.

  • However, with regards to an order as crucial as a set of replica cheap oakleys, spend some time and look around to actually strike the best offer as part of your resources ?request information from other users and explore web sites!You’ll find knockoffs cheap however you is not going to get quality stylish Oakleys for much less
