    • Agreed. Also, Cake Boss is the worse. The whole staff seems totally off putting and their cakes looks lame. I visually prefer Ace if Cakes. I’d hang out with Duff and his crew any day.

  • Looking forward to Major Crimes. Everything else is a rerun or I don’t care.

  • Not a thing there. If my kids were small, would tune in to Rudolph.

  • Nothing to watch this time of year is a which came first the chicken or the egg situation. Is there nothing to watch because no one watches? Or does no one watch because nothing is on? I know I would watch a new episode of my favorite show if it aired now — unless I missed it because I assumed nothing was on.

  • WWE Monday Night Raw for me tonight. I’ll wait next Monday for a fresh episode of Almost Human and in two weeks The Blacklist returns with fresh episodes.

  • Sixteen candles on AXSTV. Nostalgia trip.

  • Am I the only one who hopes they resolve the whole Rusty situation so that he GOES AWAY? Such an annoying character. I was hoping for a happy ENDING for him when his dad showed up; when his mom showed up; when Raider’s ex-husband showed up; when the psychologist showed up…anyone.
