      “TUNE IN FOR THE GRAND FINALE OF “THE BORGIAS” THIS SUNDAY, JUNE 16th at 10 P.M. ET/PT ON SHOWTIME” (Showtime press release dated June 11) – – Mgmt.

    Client List

  8. Danielle H. says:

    The Client List, Mad Men, and True Blood. There’s a mini featurette right before True Blood starts if people want to tune in, Just an FYI for hardcore fans.
    I’m on the fence on whether or not I want Client List renewed. I think it will be, but this season felt more weighted down then the last. I also missed the camraderie of the old group of massage therapists who mysteriously just disppeared with no explanation.

    • Luther says:

      I agree, Client list is not as fun as it used to be. And she has taken back her husband far too easily, pretty sure she will be back with the brother eventually but its painful in the meantime.

  9. Mad Men (last episode before the season finale). Also, The Killing and the Daytime Emmy Awards (hope The Young and the Restless is going to dominate this year).

  10. SK says:

    Falling Skies

  11. glen williams says:

    How about the NBA..

    • The Beach says:

      Seemed a bit odd to leave out the NBA Finals since this will draw the largest audience of any shows listed tonight.

  12. EJ says:

    Mad Men-it’s the penultimate episode of the penultimate season! And if nothing significant occurs then Matt Weiner is definitely screwing with us.

  13. Annie says:
