    Happy for the Bones ratings after a fairly meh ep, but with some great guest stars.

    Proves that Frosty Returns should stay gone. Frosty and Virginia are a better pairing.

    Wherever I see every show go up, I just imagine some office grunt at Nielsen realizing he’d been running the report wrong all year.

  7. Caught up on Dracula this past week and did fast forward through a bunch of boring the more I watched the better the show got. I’ll definitely be watching from now on.

      Yeah Dracula! Crossing my fingers for a season two renewal (it’s never too early)

        If they can keep JRM sober long enough for season two that would be great. I know he said the show couldn’t last past a second season but I would love to see a second season at least.

    Bones will continue to rise. Hoping for a 10th season. The fans and the show deserve it!

  13. DOT says:

    Love dracula so much I hope they get a 2nd season;if they gave community another season I think dracula will get a 2nd season.

  14. Mikael says:

    Good for Dracula. I think it’s getting really good.

  15. Fudgefase says:

    Honestly, I HATED the first episode of Dracula. I thought it was completely mixed up; had no discernible plot and was badly cast BUT I am a complete convert. I now love it and watch it faithfully. I don’t know how because that first episode was a real mess, but it has really turned itself around. Loving it and glad it’s rising.

    Nikita made a bad call on Friday telling Nerd to talk to his dad. But I am super excited for the final 3 episodes.
