  1. Shark Tank was new last night, not a rerun…

    Very happy to see Parks and Rec back for its final season. Amy Poehler should definitely be an Emmy nominee soon.

    Sad to see Chicago Fire hit a season low but if a lot of people are feeling like me I can understand why. I still love the show but this season is more like the Dawson show. So far I’ve been able to overlook that and just concentrate on the other characters. But I will say that I enjoyed last night’s episode more with Dawson and Casey being apart rather than all the boring relationship angst. But we all know that won’t last and they’ll likely be back together by the end of the season.

      Totally agree with you. Cannot stand the two of them together. Like them more apart. Also, the show was up against POI and Forever. I have a feeling these two shows are taking viewers away from Chicago Fire

      • wrstlgirl says:

        I knew the minute they put them together we were gonna have nothing but whining and crying from Dawson, even though all of season one all she did was pine away for him. . And she ended up doing exactly what I knew she would do. Dump Casey for her career. She’s never happy or satisfied. Wish they would have killed her off instead of Shay, LOL!!!

    Aren’t people sick of Shark Tank. These egomaniacs are on all the time.

    Sorry to see “Agent Carter”‘s ratings slip. I was hoping with such good buzz it would increase.

    • Chelsea says:

      Me too. We’re really getting into it.

    • KatsMom says:

      I didn’t really expect an increase. It’s pretty rare for a show to improve on its premiere, but i was hoping it would at least hold steady. Hopefully, people were just exhausted from staying up too late to watching Oregon and OSU on Monday night or something and the ratings will tick back up next week.

    Forever was so good!

  7. Will says:

    I love Parks & Rec.. new timeline is a bit of an adjustment but I’m along for the ride.

    Also, unexpectedly enjoyed Agent Carter premiere (haven’t watched last nights ep) but I’m on board with the rest of the season. It’s just a fun show… wish more people watched!

    I really really hope ABC renews Forever & Agent Carter. *wishes so hard*

    • John NYC says:

      Yes, given we’ve seen she lives to a rather advanced age there’s at least no danger she’ll get killed off in a movie for their own reasons and mess with the television storyline. No “Coulson problem”.

    Don’t take off the shows of cater and marvel. Your making a big mistake and all of of us will quit watching your station. Really we love these shows. What’s wrong with you all .get rid of a law and CO they need to go.
