  5. Kresh says:

    Burn notice firstly and I’ll watch graceland a bit later when I got time for it, I am watching these damn us tv shows online anyways.. :/

  6. Jim says:

    The pilot episode for Graceland was available on demand & I enjoyed it. I hope it does well.

  7. Joey says:

    Men At Work. Hope the show gets renewed for season 3.

  8. NBA Finals. My money’s on the Miami Heat to win another title. Really don’t like the San Antonio Spurs so much.

  9. Moxie says:

    Burn Notice for certain. I don’t usually like zombies, but I usually enjoy the BBC America shows, so I’ll give In the Flesh a try.

  10. lyn says:

    Grease on AMC. Haven’t seen it for a while and it’s better than most of what’s on.

  11. Fran Anderson says:

    In the Flesh.

  12. Mel says:

    Graceland, Hannibal, In the Flesh, 72 Hours. My hubby still watches Burn Notice. I gave up on that last year.

  13. Jaclyn says:

    The Greatest Event in Television History!

  14. TV Gord says:

    I’m not a basketball fan, but I never miss Jimmy Kimmel’s Game Night specials! They are frequently hilarious and always entertaining!

  15. Steve F. says:

    The First 48, Beyond Scared Straight, and maybe Hell’s Kitchen (hope Jeremy Piven and Maria Menounos get fed… when Kelly Hu was there a couple of weeks ago, Chef Ramsey “SHUT IT DOWN!” before her order got sent out).

  16. Justin says:

    Burn Notice and Graceland for me. Basically all USA.

  17. Andy says:

    Graceland because of Jeff Eastin and Aaron Tveit. I’m still angry at TNT for the end of Leverage though. I worry that hole will never heal.

  18. CJ says:

    Men at Work, Graceland, and Hannibal! (I hate that they’re all on at the same time though!)

  19. bobbie says:

    Burn Notice, Hannibal.

  20. bobbie says:

    And, In the Flesh.
