    ZE sounds like it should be on ABC Family….they are much better at handling complex identity stuff and family issues than the CW is. But I’ll watch it anyways (unless its offensive). Please dont be offensive.

  2. What happened to Gretchen Carlson? Is she moving on to do another TV gig in the works?

  3. Tori says:

    If I have to roll my eyes at SVU anymore before this season even starts i’m going to be cross eyed.

    Why would Katie leave her show?

    Ugh to Hasselback..
