    I didn’t realise King and Maxwell was being adapted for TV.
    This should be interesting.

  22. sarah says:

    Recording: Mistressess

  23. GS says:

    Switched At Birth, The Fosters and even thought I swore I wouldn’t watch it, I’m going to DVR Mistresses because I need some good trashy summer tv until Big Brother comes back and I can’t tolerate The Bachelorette anymore.

  25. Annie says:

    Major Crimes

    The Winner Is will have my full attention tonight at 10!!

  35. DavidSask says:

    I will give King & Maxwell a look but the shameful part is Rebecca is horrid actress so not sure if this will survive long! I quit the Bachelorette am proud of myself! Glad I am not the only one that thinks Christina Milan should not be part of Voice and is filler not needed. I love the new blonde boy on SAB he little hottie. Mistresses is crap TV but will still watch out of boredom just like last nights on-line preview of racist, rather bad Devious Maids, anyone liking that show who sampled it so far?

  36. Bobbie says:

    Defiance, Warehouse 12 + 1,Shortmire
