    I will watch Blue Bloods, CSI:NY, NCIS, Hawaii 5o, Mentalist, Person of Interest, NCIS: Los Angelos, CBS is my favorite stations. My brother lives in Lake county they also watch all these shows and my sister lives n Waconda and her whole family of four also watch, plus they watch The Good wife and say it is great, I only watched it once. Thank You for letting me voice my opinoin. I do not know why people watch csi, NY is better. Sandy

    Ah, Fall Schedule. Time once again to count on one hand the number of shows I watch on this network. :)

    Hawaii Five-0, NCIS: LA, Person of Interest, Elementary (will try, not expecting to like), and CSI: NY (so glad they didn’t cancel it!).

    Fabulous-I can now plan to watch only 4 CBS shows since they cancelled my ultimate fav CSI Miami, and there are not many shows on any channel that hold my interest. Now I can save more money by cancelling my satellite system and going to various clients/friends’ homes, and watching their TVs while I pursue my personal chef duties. Thanks CBS, NBC, Fox, and ABC (I will still have someone record Revenge and TNT’s Dallas), as well as the various cable channels, I can finally say I am almost TV free. Good luck on your new season, I won’t be watching.
