  5. Aimee says:

    When is Grimm coming back?

  6. Cody Drennen says:

    The fitness program on Shark Tank is DDPYoga, made by former wrestler, Diamond Dallas Page(DDP), and it really helps. Saved some wrestlers lives like Jake Roberts and Scott Hall. DDP is really changing the world with it.

  7. Brian says:

    Yup, I’m a bit confused as to why DDPYoga would be on Shark Tank, unless it’s to get funding for the app they are looking to make?
    The program really works, and has people all over the world doing it (myself included) so the “seven minute abs man” line is a bit annoying to me.

  8. tp says:

    I’ll be celebrating the end of the Olympic forced hiatus by re-watching the previous episodes of several shows on my dvr.

  9. Joey says:

    Jimmy Fallon. I can’t wait for new History of Rap Jimmy and Justin will do on show tonight.
