  • Mistresses, unfortunately, is not showing until 2:05a! I guess that’s just in the East Coast due to Monday Night Football? I don’t know but I will not be staying up for that. Too bad since it’s the finale.

  • Under The Dome for sure! It’s funny, I started watching that show thinking it was a totally dumb concept and I was probably going to hate it and now I’m hooked!

  • Guess I’ll wait two more weeks before The Blacklist premieres and I’m always hooked on that but next Monday I’ll try my best to tune in for the debut of Sleepy Hollow on Fox.
