    I have a feeling The McCarthys is going to be a goner until the finale come February at least if Joey McIntyre can be as funny other than being a part of NKOTB.

    I so wish Bad Judge wasn’t over after this season. It’s honestly one of my favorite shows right now and by far my favorite new show to air.

    Hanging my head in embarrassment, but 2 & 1/2 Men is just now starting to get back its old mojo. Kutcher was actually good last night and Waldon is great with young Louis. The McCarthys has been a big disappointment and probably won’t last more than the one season.

      I liked The McCarthys when it started, but lately it has gone downhill. Last night’s episode was the weakest thus far. Laurie Metcalf is a little OTT as the mom. As for 2.5 Men, I haven’t watched a full episode in years, however last night I caught a few minutes and it was better than expected. Then I watched part of the HTGAWM rerun and realized it isn’t nearly as good when you know the outcome. We still don’t know who killed Lila, but I haven’t changed my prediction that Bonnie the ever-lurking attorney did it!
