    Season Two of Mom is even better than Season One and congrats to Allison Janney on her Golden Globe nomination.

      I agree. I’m enjoying Mom this season and laughing pretty consistently. I’ve never been a huge Allison Janney fan, but I know she is talented. She is great in this role. And she has great chemistry with Anna Farris.

    ugh….Every time there is a new TBBT thats the rating Bones gets or adjusted up to 1.3 or 1.3 ….it can easily get a 1.5 or higher going against Greys and NFL like it did in Oct or when TBBT is on repeats….its obvious that Bones & TBBT share a similar viewership between the two however small….SIGHS

    I am for #Bones200 was a fun show to watch with the cast doing a great job! It’s a shame because this show has so much to offer.

    Disappointed about BONES because it was a great episode.

    Bones was ok, but I hope they get BACK TO the usual procedural with the team solving crimes as normal. I expected to see more of the formers on there but was disappointed. Of course Sweets wasn’t so my love has lessened somewhat for the show too. I’m not liking the change that Nathan/producers/writers have come up with, they better NOT kill of anyone else either.

    Happy that Reign ticked up. I’ve loved it from day 1, but season 2 is finally hitting it’s stride now, particularly with the additions of Conde and Claude. While the Catholic/Protestant conflict is interesting from a history perspective, the show is at it’s best when it focuses on characters and relationships. More of that, please!

    There is no way the lame and tiresome Big Bang got one over on Bones, it’s crap! It’s politics because there’s just no way…read all the comments about Bones and then Big Bang and tell me how the hell Big Bang got ahead? So if a show doesn’t get ahead fairly then you do it unfairly by making it seem the viewers are choosing one over the other… it’s crap.
