    Trump got trumped! Sorry, I just had to.

    Mom was pretty good. It isn’t a show I normally watch, but I saw the beginning with Chris Pratt and kept watching. Even my wife thought it was a good episode and she typically doesn’t like this show. Life In Pieces was also good last night. Kurt Warner was hysterical!

    Maybe CBS should stop putting new episodes of Big Bang every second week. Then people would know when to watch.

    A new episode Teo weeks ago and another two weeks before the next one.

      TBBT needs a rest. CBS runs it in the ground. Not sure people watch because it is good (although in many cases, it is) but sitcom is just overexposed.

      • jj says:

        your comment doesn’t really make sense. It gets the same number of episodes per season as other CBS shows. It’s the highest rated, people like it so much that even the repeats get more viewers than most shows do with new episodes. And your recommendation is that it needs a rest?

        • :-) says:

          I think the point is TBBT runs any time CBS has an opening on the schedule . They use it to launch all b of their new or low rated shows. CBS runs more TBBT reruns than syndication

          • delorb says:

            That’s not true. There are cable stations that dedicate entire evenings to back to back showings of TBBT. More than CBS can put on the schedule. Especially when you consider the hiatus’.

    Predicting the Thursday, January 26, 2017 lineup on ABC will have at least double last night’s ratings.

  5. Mark says:

    Has the blacklist been played out od sequence as it just seems strange they would place Liz under cover a week after her face was plastered all over national television foe her being pardoned by the president. Seems a leap of faith to far.

    • Penny says:

      It wasn’t played out of order but rather seemed like lazy writing. They make it out to seem like everyone knows who Elizabeth Keen is, she even gets beaten up at a grocery store because of who she is but she can successfully go undercover because she put on a pair of glasses? Just bad writing.

    Tell me again, based on the above, why Mysteries of Laura cancelled??

    Last night’s episode of Mom was fantastic and a lot of fun. I enjoyed Chris Pratt’s odd yet endearing character – his chemistry with Anna was through the roof! Hope there’s more..

  8. Kevin says:

    Another intense episode of The Blacklist last night. Hope Jill Hennessy may have her own series in the near future even though she was great on Law & Order and Crossing Jordan (both shows on NBC) back then.

    Chris Pratt is such an All-American hunk! *drool*
