  • Cowboys vs Eagles. Cowboys win.

    • Is it really a worthwhile game? The Cowboys’ lackluster defense puts them a severe disadvantage, especially with Romo out. Whoever wins gets to lose during Wildcard weekend.

      • Pretty accurate, but I live in Dallas so I’ll watch. It’s pretty meaningless since neither team is going anywhere.

    • Lol, good luck with that.

  • Football all day. Can’t wait for Downton Abbey and Revenge to return next week. I love football, but it will be nice to have something else to watch again.

    • Revenge isn’t back to March :(

      • Oops… Never mind, just saw that there are 3 episodes in January before it’s off to March.

      • No it comes back January 5th. They are airing three more episodes in January and then they come back March 9th .

  • HBO’s Winter programming is really terrible. I’m so glad Treme is over. That show is awful.

    • Just because you don’t like it doesn’t mean it’s awful. It just means your taste is questionable.

      • Just because I think it’s awful doesn’t mean my taste is questionable, just means we have a difference of opinion. No need to be so rude.

    • Getting On is incredibly underrated.

    • @WTactualF: GET OUT.

  • I love Treme. I’m sure The Big Chief’s send off will be something to see. I will miss the show.

    Comment by Carol – December 29, 2013 07:13 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • Ja’mie is a one-off series so it won’t be renewed. Chris Lilley has been “renewed”. His next series about the Summer Heights High’s character ‘Jonah’ has already been announced for Australian television.

    Comment by Et al – December 29, 2013 09:06 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • Ja’mie is ridiculous. Turned it off within the first 5 minutes.

  • I love Khandi Alexander — she can play glamorous or haggard equally well.

  • Football for me. Peyton Manning breaks some more records. Eagles snuff the Boys.

    Comment by Ginger Snap – December 29, 2013 02:31 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • Eagles vs Boys – hoping the Boys win. I’m DVRing Treme.

  • Crap, I completely forgot about Treme. I am banished to dogsitting at my mother’s house for the holidays where HBO does not exist, and I’m forbidden to stream anything online because they have a super crappy internet plan. I’M BORED. A book I got for Christmas about the Conan/Jay Tonight Show war, and the Breaking Bad marathon are the only things that’s been keeping me from going crazy.
