  • Sing Off tonight….really a shame they rushing the season like this.Think they had less groups this season and they are booting groups way faster at this stage.

  • The Reign pilot reairs tonight. Even though I saw it when it was on the first time, I plan on watching it again because it’s THAT good, and I hope some new viewers give it a chance too.
