    Grimm and Haven. DVRing Hawaii Five-O and It Takes a Choir

  13. Are you sure It Takes a Choir is on? When I went to check the USA schedule it just lists Modern Family Reruns at 10 tonight.

    • LynnH says:

      I have been trying to find it also. A few days ago it was on Saturday night at 11pm according to my cable schedule grid but now it’s gone. ??

    • Thea says:

      Same here, and Cablevision’s search option includes all channels. Any word, Misha?

    • LynnH says:

      I’ve done some searching and apparently USA decided just today to delay the season premiere until sometime in 2014. They felt a different date and time slot would better serve the show. Not sure why USA waited until today to move it. Weird.

    H50 and Blue Bloods for me…and I can’t wait to see Charisma with Danny! That’s the kind of woman I can see him with. He has below 0 chemistry with Amy Carlson.
