        • You’re not missing much. I’m still watching because a few of the characters are great, but there’s a lot of tedious other stuff.

    • Nikita is a really great show. Catch up on it with Netflix and then watch the current season. It’s just a bummer it’s on fridays. Cult is a new one on the CW that’s really good too.

  • LIVE: Grimm!! :-D
    DVR – Touch because I have to see this through. But really can’t get on board with the “Bauer” like-direction it has taken S2.

    • 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.

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

  • 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.

    • 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.
