    I haven’t watched the show before because I just never believe in summer series, but I might now. I didn’t realize that it’s numbers were nearly that good.

      Yeah I think networks have smarten a little and hopefully realize that renewing shows early helps with ratings. More so for summer shows.

  2. Night Shift is a really good show. So glad it was renewed for a 2nd season.

    Wife swap was really awful & boring… They obviously can’t get any real celebrity… D list & Apprentice cast offs

    Damn! I wanted to watch this show when it was announced as a fall show last summer. Then when it was delayed until this summer I decided to pass as I was sure it would be cancelled! I should have watched it!

    I dropped this show after the third episode. The writing was kind of subpar.
