  16. Sidney.B says:

    I’m gonna try Brooklyn nine nine, the review are good about.Can’t watch New Girl so i’ll catch it online and I already watched TMP.

    • I’m worried if Brooklyn Nine Nine is going to survive throughout the entire season and possibly get a full season pick up by Fox depending on ratings and it got good but well deserving reviews from both critics and viewers alike.

    America’s Got Talent, Whose Line is it Anyway?, and Sons of Anarchy.
