    What about Nashville?????

  2. Shira says:

    Nashville, Nashville, Nashville!! It’s FINALLY back!!!!

  3. GildedRose says:

    I’m very happy to see Arrow getting back to the core team of Oliver, Felicity and Diggle. I love those 3. I think that’s the main reason I stuck around in season 1 and really fell for the show. Can’t wait to see what Diggle and Felicity are up to in order to find/save/help Oliver!

  4. Justin says:

    Criminal Minds
    Modern Family

  5. Emily says:

    Good Lord they have really been putting Benson through h*ll this year. And the fans love it. I fear for Mariska next season if she comes back. It will be 22 episodes of nothing but Benson getting kidnapped and beat up and crying.

    • kajar says:

      Some fans love it. I personally do not like seeing Benson victimized again and again. Not why I tuned in all these years and pretty much why I don’t really care about watching the show anymore (which is too bad because I like the new characters — but continuously torturing Benson is a deal breaker, I’m afraid).

      • msbellalugosi says:

        kajar, I agree completely. I am hating this torture Benson stuff. They never should have brought Lewis back. Someone in prison should have killed him, so we wouldn’t have to see him again.

        • Jeff says:

          Meh – the whole premise of the show (sex crimes, especially episodes involving children) is creepy to begin with, this is just more of the same creepy (watching the star of the show being tortured).

          • EJ says:

            I do think Donal Logue’s character will be a nice shot in the arm for the squadroom, though.

      • bj says:

        That’s why I’ve actually stopped watching the show after all these years.

    • Robby Horine says:

      Hopefully, next season (if there is one) Olivia will be on a road to a happy ending. After all the hell she’s been through, Dick Wolf owes it to the character.

    • Martoukian says:

      They’ve been putting Benson through hull?

  22. worthymagic says:

    Olivia Benson hasn’t been the only one going thru hell. The fans of Law & Order SVU are going thru hell waiting for NBC to officially bring it back for next season(and hopefully beyond). it sounds like NBC and David Wolf are playing a game of chicken and the viewers will be the losers. Since I usually buy Grimm(and will buy The Blacklist) on DVD, I could see not watching any NBC programs next season(unless the Vikings are on Sunday Night Football) if SVU isn’t brought back. Fortunately for NBC, I am just one person.

    • maud says:

      You are not just one person. I feel the about SVU. I am tired of networks and producers jerking loyal fans around till the last minute. When I now see some show that seems it will be interesting I’m reluctant to start watching as it could be cancelled after a few episodes. They have to give new shows a chance to be seen.
