    • Same. I always remember the scene where he fixes himself dinner and then sits down and watches the video footage of Bree. So creepy.

  • The more Roger Bart on TV the better in my opinion. He is great on Revenge.

  • Bummer, I can’t find any of those shows listed on CBS.com other than on an out of date sitemap. When are they supposed to go up?

  • I loved Wolf Lake! I was sorry when it was cancelled, though not surprised. Of course, we got Stefan Salvatore out of that series. :)

  • I like CBS’s ‘Hey look! We actually used to have good dramas!’ Summer. They should put Picket Fences on the site while they’re at it.

    • I would love for this to happen. Craig and Carter have said there would be musical numbers this season. Roger would make an excellent disgruntled hotel employee whose bizarre antics threaten to ruin the wedding/ rehearsal/ reception.
