    Malibu Country

    • Martoukian says:

      Stacy Keach has turned out to be quite a comedian. He was funny on 2 1/2 Men and he was funny on Malibu Country, too. I never liked him much as a serious actor.

    Grimm, Malibu Country. Something off my TiVo selection.

  14. Megan says:

    Nikita and Cult! Why these are on friday??? Come on, CW!! These are great shows! Get them out of the death slot!

  15. bobbie says:

    Grimm, Touch, Bill Maher. I still haven’t watched the first episode of Cult, though I should try to do that. I think. I don’t like to think of Friday as a “death slot” I’ve been watching Grimm, Touch, and Haven on Friday nights, shows that are worth watching. Saturday night, now, that’s really a death slot. I don’t even check the tv guide on Saturdays, everyone knows there’s nothing on Saturdays! Now Smash will be, omg. It’s been Saffron’d.

    • Jay says:

      ABC used to run movies on Saturdays. I don’t know why they stopped, but they could pull in the ratings when they did have them. I know there’s the big one on Easter weekend coming up, but after that I haven’t found any information yet, so anything could happen.
