    Modern Family Psych (congrats on 100)

  2. David Becker says:

    whitney may be the worst show ever on television. if it gets piked up for another season – whitney cummings has something on somebody at nbc and its BIG!

    • mia says:

      Hey, its not that bad. I’m a pretty critical tv watcher and I really like it. I think the relationship between Alex+Whitney is refreshing and a heck of a lot more realistic than a lot of relationships on tv. The show has heart and its funny, if not the classiest thing ever aired. But its nowhere near the worst thing ever on tv.

    • TV Gord says:

      I wonder how long it’s been since you watched it. I would have agreed with you after the first season, but the second season has improved greatly! The relationship between Whitney and Alex is much more like a real relationship this year.

      I’m surprised that I voted “Keep” for both Whitney and The Neighbors, because I couldn’t stand either of them when they first started, but they improved as they went along. Now that I “get” that The Neighbors is winking at the audience with its absurd premise, I’m enjoying it a lot more.

    • Eli says:

      Get over yourself David. Just cause it is not your cup of tea doesn’t make it the worst show ever on television you self-righteous prick. Or have you already forgotten the disaster that was “Work It”?

    • Mike says:

      Cmon its just your typical sitcom, bland but whatever that what people want I guess.

  3. dude says:

    ^100 percent agree how it got season 2 i still dont understand

  4. Kaycee says:

    This is definitely the last Whitney. With 3 of the leads leaving to do pilots, it’s pretty obvious.

    It’s a shame though, because it was a really good show. :(

    • Mike says:

      Not really just means show is on the fence but doesn’t mean it cancelled, you see this all the time with shows on the fence.

  5. Alan says:

    i think you are leaving out the best guest star for psych, curt smith from tears for fear. shawn would not be impressed.

  6. Mel says:

    I enjoyed Whitney despite all the undeserved bad press, and will be sorry to see it go. Sunday, Wednesday and Thursday are the best TV nights! Will be watching Survivor, Supernatural and Nashville and recording The Middle, Suburgatory, Modern Family and The Americans.

  7. Becks says:

    Survivor, Mod Fam & Nashville’s finally back!

  8. mia says:

    I hope Whitney gets renewed, I’ve really enjoyed it.

  9. b miller says:

    What – no love for The Americans – one of the best shows on TV – good to see another side of Felicity….

  10. Sunny says:

    Suburgatory and Psych! More people should be watching suburgatory it’s such a good show. Last week when George was singing “Bump and Grind” on that guitar I was dying!

  11. Kimmie says:

    The Neighbors is actually really good – thanks to the line delivery of Jackie Joyner-Kersey and Larry Bird – they are very funny!

    • prish says:

      I agree with you. And the other actors are genius in restraint, letting them set the tone for the show. There is a lot of courage and heart to the show. If this show is still in danger of cancellation that could only mean sci-fi fans haven’t checked it out. This show is fun to watch, folks!

    • prish says:

      My Neighbors post, down below, is in response to yours, Kimmie. You’re right, it’s fun to watch.

  12. Southland. I’ll watch Chicago Fire On Demand. Whitney & The Neighbors are going to get canceled soon (fingers crossed).

  13. Erin says:

    I’m so excited for tonight’s Psych. I know he was already on way back in season 1, but I really wish they had found a way to get Tim Curry in this episode too.

  14. Jared says:


  15. B says:

    Guys I’m as obsessed with Carmen as Noah and the Royces are. I refer to her all the time even though zero of my friends watch Suburgatory. Now that Noah’s going to be right across the street from her, things are going to get good.

  16. dude says:

    my favorite guest star on Psych is Cary Elwes

  17. Brandy says:

  24. prish says:

    Neighbors is addictive. I can’t stop watching it. The show has heart, and even though the lines should be corny, they are touching and funny. I guess I am seeing genius at work.

  25. bobbie says:

    Whitney, Suburgatory, and the wonderful and amazing Psych!

  26. Eliza says:

    Psych. Excited for the 100th episode!

  27. Andy says:

    Modern Family, Arrow, Supernatural, and PSYCH ! ! !

    What I’ll be watching:
    American Idol
    The Middle
    Modern Family
    Chicago Fire

    All thanks to the wonders of modern technology.

  33. Zoe says:

    I have rehearsal for a play I’m in, so I can’t actually watch things live tonight. I’ll be catching SVU on Hulu tomorrow, though. Although I still need to watch the Chris Brown/Rihanna episode from a few weeks back…
