    Watching the Big Game! Go Blue! DVR everything else tonight

  8. TV Gord says:

    Two episodes of Dallas tonight, and two more next week to end the season! I’m anxious to find out how J.R.’s Masterpiece plays out!

    I instantly fell in love with Bates Motel (more than The Following, though I like it, too). And The Carrie Diaries grew on me over the season. I hope it’s renewed The same goes for Monday Mornings, which sadly does not have the ratings for a second season, although I continue to hope for a TNT miracle.

  9. cheryl says:

    Monday Mornings! Fantastic show!

  10. dude says:

    If the cw cancels Carrie Diaries, Nikita will have a bigger chance to get renewed so cut it!!!

  14. Rae says:

    DWTS & Revolution
    DVR: The Following and Bates Motel

  15. Ruby says:

    Watching Being Human (which BETTER get renewed!) The Following, and Bates Motel. I gave up on Revolution over the hiatus, it was too long and I didn’t care enough to come back.

    • Magically Suspicious says:

      Totally agree. Being Human BETTER be renewed. It’s the rare American version of a British show that I like the American version better. I’m also having a hard time caring about Revolution after the long break. I watched the first new episode, but I suspect they’ll build up on the DVR from here out. Grimm is the same. I have all of the new episodes collecting dust on the DVR. The long breaks kill me.

      • Whatever says:

        I completely agree with about Being Human.
        They better renew it and it is a much better version than the British show they copied from.

        • TheDude says:

          Couldn’t agree more. I liked the British version for the first few seasons but they started to lose me when they kept replacing the Original cast members. Haven’t bothered with the last few seasons. I think the American version’s strength is coming from the great performances of the trio of Actors. I feel like they will be better off in the long run if they stick with them until the end.

  16. The Voice & Revolution. Happy Mondays are here again. :-)

  17. Kwapple says:

    Louisville/Michigan…rooting against Pitino

    RuPaul’s Drag Race

  19. katrina says:

    Anna Sophia deserves better material. The CW should not renew the series.

  20. Prue says:

    Carrie Diaries Finale!! Hoping for a second season!

  21. sdexta says:

    Top of the Lake!

  22. SusieQ says:

    Bate Motel

  23. Jared says:

    Although I really like The Carrie Diaries it just seems like it was never the hit it was supposed to be. Cute show either way but I dont see it coming back for a second season at this point.

  24. Kendall says:

    The voice and Monday mornings

  25. Andy says:

    The Carrie Diaries, Bates Motel, and The Following

  26. paul says:


  27. Drew says:

    How about “Keep Or Cut” polls for some other shows? I nominate “How To Live With Your Parents (For The Rest Of Your Life)” and, personally, I’d vote “Cut!”

  28. Eli says:

    How can The Carrie Diaries have a higher keep rating than Monday Mornings? Is TVline populated entirely by 15 year old girls now? :(

  29. Babybop says:

    All my Monday shows are repeats. This must be the world’s way of forcing me to study for my exam tomorrow…

  30. theresa says:

    Watching the Following & Bates Motel. DVR Dallas, Revolution, Being Human, Lost Girl & After Lately.

  31. Leondre says:

    The voice

  32. cjeffery7 says:

    i’ve been watching Monday Mornings, but i just feel really neutral about it. it’s got great actors who i like a lot, but the plot and writing doesnt really match up to their quality and ability.

  33. bobbie says:

    Monday Mornings, Top of the Lake, The Following

  34. Renee says:

    Revolution. I’ll just have to wait until Top Of The Lake is on DVD. Netflix is my friend.

  35. forwarddad says:

    DVR Dallas and Monday Morning (good thing TNT repeats episodes)
    The Following

  36. Chris H says:

    Top of the Lake and Bates Motel. i agree long breaks are not a good thing. the networks need to stop playing games with shows.

  37. Dallas for sure! Cliff Barnes will get what’s coming to him, eventually.

  38. msstargate says:

    Dallas and Revolution!!!

  39. Kari says:

    Please renew Monday Mornings!!! It’s my favorite show right now!!!

  40. Sunshine says:

    Dallas & Revolution. Loving Dallas. I hope TNT renews it!!!!

  41. bobbie says:

    and Being Human

  42. Lauren says:

    Wow there is nothing on for me tonight. That doesn’t happen often. I guess I better get used to it.

  43. bonescrazy says:

    Well, I don’t care who else thinks. Monday night is not worth watching. As long as Bones is on nothing else matters!! I am a LOYAL fan and have NEVER missed a single. Monday was hard ,but I’ve adjusted!!

  44. dhora says:

    pls save the carrie diaries!!

  45. dhora says:

    Its the best show in monday evening the carrie diaries!!!^^♥♥

  46. melissa says:

    I love the episodes of Carrie diaries. Big fan. However I’m a bigger fan of sex in the city. I was a little taken for a loop at the significant differences between Carrie Bradshaw in sex in the city and Carrie bradshaw in the Carrie diaries. Like in sex in the city she didn’t know her father and never had a sister. Although I love their characters and think they were a great add to Carrie’s life. But not having a father is why Carrie Bradshaw in sex in the city had so many issues with men. And not having siblings is why Carrie’s connection with Samantha, Miranda, and Charlotte were so wonderful. Thats just my opinion though.
