  • The Carrie diaryies didn’t play on the west coast

    • Correction – it didn’t play on KTLA. Other West Coast stations were fine. KTLA, which serves SoCal north of San Diego, chose to show the Hollywood Christmas Parade – which usually is on a Sunday.

  • I am sorry to hear that Nikita was flat. Noah Bean’s performance was amazing last night.

    • What difference does it make? There are only a few episodes left, no one is going to start up the show now.

  • The Carrie Diaries hasn’t been canceled yet, there is still some hope…when you send low rated shows to Friday they are doomed! Move TCD to a different night, there is hope for it – it has been really good this season :)

  • H50 and Blue Bloods were really good! They were lower than usual as most people did not realize it was on OR PVR’d as they were out.

  • The Lucy Special was a bait and switch. First half was basically a lost “clip show” for christmas and the second half was very popular episode from the series. Spent most of the hour with my face in my iPad.

    • I watched as I used to ♥ the show reruns back in the 70′s rabbit ears day. But watching them, all I cold think To myself was, “If a show appeared like this today, it’d be canceled 5 minutes in.”

      • $%^& typos “cold” = could – They need an edit button.
