    The Scrubs reunion sounds interesting, it’s a shame they gave the show a Ninth season when the Eighth had the perfect ending.

  2. ME says:

    The Carver Twins were such a comic relief in The Leftovers. They always look like they are just being themselves and it’s funny.

    Was there really any doubt who was going to play Mansfield’s wife? I really like Ground Floor can’t wait for it to come back.

  4. HAP says:

    Christa Miller has been Mrs. Bill Lawrence since 1999. Makes sense that she was a regular in Scrubs and Cougar Town.

  5. TVFan says:

    Barbara Streisand’s last late night appearance was in 1994. Last I checked, that was 20 years ago. Not 50.

  6. But when is USA going to wake up and renew Playing House?
