  2. K. says:

    Melissa and Joey, Baby Daddy and Psych…… Love all these shows!!

  3. Esaul says:

    Can’t believe tonight’s the finale. Ugh. Can’t wait for the musical. :D

    • dude says:

      it is so cruel but worth it. hope Season 8 if its the last is way longer. that musical will be amazing

      • Esaul says:

        I hope that it isn’t the last. Realistically, and looking at all the signs, it probably is, sadly. I’m just glad USA Network gave Psych the chance to go on as long as they have. I remember watching Monk/Psych every week when it first started. Now Psych is strong enough to be on its own. It’s quite remarkable really. To me, Psych hasn’t had a bad season (or episode), so season eight, if it is the last season, will be epic.

        • Eliza says:

          I also hope it isn’t the last but I agree that it most likely is. Psych (and Burn Notice) are what brought me to the USA Network….I’m going to miss both shows terribly!! They have some of my favorite people/characters ever.

  4. Fans of the History Channel show Top Shot should note that the new all-star season starts tonight at 10/9c. It’s a shame I haven’t seen much mention of it anywhere (TVLine doesn’t even have it on their Summer TV Calendar) as it’s definitely one of the better reality shows on TV at the moment.

  5. Don’t know which team I’m rootin’ for in Game 7 of the Stanley Cup playoffs: Chicago Blackhawks or Detroit Red Wings.

  6. JJ says:

    Melissa and Joey
    Baby Daddy

  7. Eliza says:

    Psych, always. And Melissa & Joey.

  8. chris says:

    Top Shot on The History Channel.

  9. joey says:

    Melissa and Joey
    Baby Daddy
    happy there will be a mini Kyle XY reunion on Baby Daddy’s season premiere episode. I miss that show.

  10. Bree Turner says:

    Why no Masterchef?!

  11. Steve F. says:

    Where’s MasterChef? That’s what I’ll be watching!

  12. Bartleby says:

    Why the hell is Jeff Foxworthy hosting a baking show? Wow, his career is really rolling along…

  13. Georgia says:

    Rogue. Such a fantsitic show. Hope it’s renewed! Also, watching two hour series finale of Bomb Girls. (Glad there will be a two-hour movie next fall to finish up all the loose ends.)

  14. Babybop says:

    Melissa and Joey, Baby Daddy (I miss Kyle XY!!!!), and Psych!

  15. Andy says:

    Arrow to keep on the DVR, Baby Daddy because I marathoned the first season in 2 days on Netflix and a mini Kyle XY reunion, and Psych because it is pure greatness just like it has been for the last seven seasons.

  16. Joe Petitjean says:


  17. Shaun says:

    Masterchef and then The Listener(Canadian Viewers only :p).

  18. Carol says:

    I hope Season 8 isn’t the LAST! Our family LOVES PSYCH! From my daughter & her family, which includes a 10 yr. old and a Senior in high school who live 3 hrs. away from me. We all LOVE the characters and the episodes!

    Hey Masterchef! Try to get through one cooking contestant without throwing it to a commercial. I dare you.
