    I have really enjoyed The Bridge. Interesting characters and a very good mystery. I hope FX brings it back next year.

  2. alim says:

    if your a bg fan of the bridge watch the original swedish version, omg its sooo good you will deffo love it.

  3. Ava says:

    Worst season of Big Brother ever.

  4. kat says:

    ‘Antepenultimate’ is the worst.

  5. Guess I’ll wait until next Wednesday for the brand new season of REVOLUTION.

  6. wrstlgirl says:

    The fact that any of the remaining three on Big Brother are going to win $500,000 turns my stomach. Talk about rewarding bad behavior. Granted the winners are never without blood on their hands but these guys are bigots, pervs and just all around vile. To make matter worse they are proud of themselves and think they are good people.

    • Alex says:

      Look at it this way: they all got dumped from their RL jobs. And once they get off the show and see how they’re generally perceived by viewers, they will be in for major wake-up calls. One of them will get nothing for finishing in third place, too.

      • j says:

        Really, every person who gets on Big Brother thinks they will be famous, a household name and recognized going down the street. Most of them must be really disappointed when they leave the house and it doesn’t happen. But this bunch – I have never seen so many of them lose or possibly lose their jobs in one season. What a bunch of bottom feeders the Grodner team found this time!

  7. Joey says:

    It’s Always Sunny, The League, and DVR Key and Peele to watch tomorrow.

  8. Eric says:


  9. Ann says:

    Survivor then Broadchurch (How could you leave this season finale out?)

  10. NBC better renew AGT sooner rather than later.

  11. Andy says:

    It’s Always Sunny

  12. Jo says:

    I’ll be watching Big Brother. I’m rooting for a deadly gas leak to win.

  13. Sarah says:

    The Challenge: Rivals II

  14. Doug says:

    Only Broadchurch tonight, the show is amazing. Love having David Tennant back on my TV.

    • opus says:

      I love Broadchurch too, and wish TV Line would recognize its worth, but David Tennant’s Scottish accent is so thick that there are times I can’t understand a word he says. Still, great television drama.

  15. j says:

    Snoop is again going by Dog I think – or so it seemed on Arsenio last week.

  16. tahina says:

    The Bridge! Too bad is almost over. Hopefully it will get renewed.

  17. Mary M says:

    How about Hell on Wheels? Will it be renewed? Hope so

  18. Ashlee says:

    It’s a reality TV kind of night, Survivor, Big Brother, Top Chef Masters, Rivals II

  19. G says:

    Survivor, Big Brother, and America’s Got Talent. I should be able to knock the 2 hour finale of AGT down to about 15 minutes though via fast forward since I don’t care about most of the special guests that they have announced as being on tonight.

  20. Sheldon W. says:

    “In this season’s antepenultimate hour” – wouldn’t it be easier to say “third last”…?
