    With Rookie Blue out of the picture, Night Shift has become my can’t miss summer series.

    I really hope everyone doesn’t die in Wayward Pines so it can be renewed for a season 3. Its been terrific for about 4 or 5 weeks straight now. Can’t wait for next week!

    I’m so happy for The Night Shift! Love the cast and the stories! Hopefully this means season 4?!?!

  6. Kyle says:

    Every week’s been the same: “Wayward Pines hit x-weeks highs”. Hours later, “Wayward Pines adjusts down to its usual 0.7”.

    Those were some dumb picks on America’s Got Talent last night. The magician with the rubik’s cube should have made it. He was awesome.
