    American Idol, Backstrom, The Blacklist, Elementary

  3. Laura says:

    The Slap could be one of the worst show premises I have heard in quite awhile. How do they expect this show to succeed exactly?! Seriously, the mind boggles. No wonder NBC’s quality has dropped off considerably in the last decade.

    • Richard says:

      The show was a success in Australia. NBC’s is a remake. But I agree the premise isn’t very interesting

    • Ron says:

      I actually disagree. I think on the surface it may seem like not such a great premise, but hiding underneath its surface, I think there’s a lot that this show can explore. Of course, this doesn’t mean it actually will be any good, but I’m going to give it a chance. That said, the show only has to succeed for a few weeks, because to my knowledge it’s only a limited run show–like 8 weeks or something like that.

      • murley says:

        I am not sure what there is to explore exactly. Are they going to try to infuse slapping a kid with moral ambiguity? The premise of this does baffle me and I don’t find it appealing but I am curious enough about how they think this will work to read the reviews/recap. Not at all interested in watching though.

    • David4 says:

      When just the ads make you go “This looks horrible!” you should have seen this show failing like a rock.

      Plus what would a second season be? He slaps another kid? This show has no life to it and it hasn’t even aired yet.

      • Sure each season adds more slaps. Maybe season two is The Bitch Slap! Season three Slapsgiving Barney’s Revenge. Seriously everyone involved with this should never work in television or movies ever again. In particular the dunderheads at NBC that greenly this POS.

  8. Joey Padron says:

    The Blacklist, Portlandia, & The Tonight Show.

  9. Nick says:

    I think it’s “Sadoski” and not “Sadowski”. I don’t mean to nitpick it just caught my eye.

  10. Nick says:

    Just the Blacklist for me tonight…and catching up on all the other stuff I haven’t had time to watch.

  11. Elibu says:

    Anybody know why The Big Bang Theory is a repeat during February sweeps? The other CBS shows are new. Seems odd.

    • Tran says:

      TBBT will have a fresh episode next week with an appearance by Nathan Fillon and the premiere of The Odd Couple reboot with Matthew Perry and Thomas Lennon.

    • brandydanforth81 says:
