    Dave is probably having an aneurism right now. Wow 2 broke girls really took a pounding.

    I liked PD’s episode last night and it showed a side of Voight that we haven’t see before. My only thing was since it was the conclusion to the crossover, I wish they would have shown Hermmann at least once. Maybe the intelligence squad stopping by to check on him given their connection through Molly’s and 51. But good for them with those numbers… Happy to see that :).

      Yeah, I enjoyed the episode but to me it could have just been a stand alone epi. Didn’t feel like a conclusion to the three part cross over at all.

    • Natasha says:

      Herman! I was waiting to hear an update on him through the whole episode and was so disappointed that they never mentioned him!

    Modern Family was so funny last night!

      We thought it was the weakest episode of a relatively strong season. The Phil/Claire storyline was funny until the punch line (a bet about eating crickets? really?), the Mitchell birthday celebration was OK (Ray Liotta was the best part of that storyline), the Cam/Lily set-up/outcome was obvious from the beginning, and the Jay/Gloria plot wasn’t funny or original. I’m still, however, laughing about their Christmas episode with Andrea Martin so I’ll give this mediocre episode a pass.

    Didn’t watch the People’s Choice Awards last night but from what I’ve seen, it was a huge disappointment and I was hoping for James Corden to host instead of Jane Lynch. Maybe her new CBS sitcom Angel From Hell is going to flop in more ways than one. As for 2 Broke Girls, how can they survive on Wednesday nights until Survivor comes back in February?

    I usually only watch Chicago Fire, but I let Dick Wolf trick me into watching the other two shows. Never again.

    • Jamie says:

      Haha Chicago PD is a really good show! Chicago Med on the other hand….

    • Ginger Snap says:

      All of the Chicago shows are tired old formulas. They’ll never exceed ER in quality.
      Just shows a lack of creativity coming from NBC.

    • Rain says:

      I really wish they’d knock it off with the crossovers. I’m the opposite of you, Chicago Fire is the only one I never watch and I hate being forced to either watch it hating the whole hour(which is what I did last time) or skip and then be lost as to what’s happening (which is what happened this time around). Just let them be stand alone shows!
