    • The worst season of Big Brother. I really don’t care who wins so I’m not going to waste my time watching it. I’d suggest the same to everyone else.

  • Camp was a very good and fun series for the summer, I hope we get a season 2

    I will watch X-Factor…. the next 2 weeks, aka before all the real series start.

    • I loved this show as well. I read somewhere the ratings were terrible and it isn’t getting renewed, very sad about that. Loved Rachel Griffiths in Brothers and Sisters but she rocks at comedy!

      • Camp not getting renewed is very disappointing. :( It was a great summer show for families. Was NBC expecting high ratings with no real promotion? I can’t believe it cost that much to produce since it all happened in one setting. It seemed like the perfect fit for summer. Oh well….

    • Me too. I’m done with BB this season. I don’t care who wins. I’ll probably watch Top Chef Masters and MasterChef. Hope Bryan Voltaggio and Luca win.

  • DVR both Royal Pains and Broadchurch, because they’re on while I get ready for my third shift job.

  • Million Second Quiz (need I say more?) and the finale of Spell-mageddon (time to do the Carlton dance one more time). Guess I’ll wait two more weeks before REVOLUTION returns for its second season.

  • Anyone know how to find out when X Factor is showing auditions from each city? I worked at the Charleston auditions, so I want to watch that episode.

  • DVR: Big Brother, Masterchef, Broadchurch, Top Chef Masters, Always Sunny

    Watch: Siberia, Broadchurch, Great Food Truck Race

  • I watched XFactor last year because of Demi and I’m going to tune in again because of her. Though I am really excited about there being 3 women on the judging panel. Bold move (though reflective of the music industry).

  • MasterChef and Royal Pains, both on DVR tomorrow (hey — the Yankees are in a pennant race. Baseball comes first at this time of year).

  • If you haven’t seen it yet you must watch The Bridge. It is an amazing show. Watch the past episodes on demand to get caught up if needed. So hope its renewed!!!!!!!

  • What’s with “promoting” two-year-old TVL posts in the “Related Stories” section?

    Comment by fiberlicious – September 11, 2013 08:32 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • I loved Camp. I really hope it returns or as usual i just won’t watch shows other than realty beacause they never give new regular shows a chance these days!! So why watch and love them to just be cancelled.
