    Glad she’s returning to TV. She was great on The Crazy Ones. Can’t wait to see her in next season of show.

  2. Jennifer says:

    Why does everybody forget to mention she was on One Life to Live. She was awesome there.

    Love that she is going to be on one of my favorite shows.

  3. Mike says:

    Maybe her and Kono could get together for some undercover work. Those two beauties could make a pretty dynamic duo…

    Yay, Amanda Setton back on my TV!

    But ugh, now I have to watch “Hawaii Five-0”?

    Love it! I wish the Crazy Ones was renewed but she will be a great addition to H50. However the role was originally a younger woman. LOL

    Carol Burnett was WONDERFUL when she was on before. She needs her cancer to go into remission (Aunt Deb) and become a permanent member of the cast. And hopefully Christine Lahti won’t be back much – hopefully.

      Amanda Setton, Carol Burnett and no Christine Lahti. Sounds idyllic to me. I love Little Caan on the show too.

    Who voiced the shrink? Very familiar, but they didn’t show her. It’s driving me nuts…
