    Wow good for NBC I wouldn’t have thought that dance show would do so good but that’s great. Also great for America’s Got Talent. And Prison Break while not doing terrific numbers did stay very steady for FOX and I hope it will get another season somewhere down the line

    Good for WOD! Once I saw the Kinjaz would be competing, I knew I had to watch.

    I though WOD was pretty bad. The acts were decent, but the show itself was not a keeper.
