    I love Rookie Blue! It should definitely be renewed as a summer show, don’t think it would make the cut for fall, but great for summer entertainment I enjoy it! Any haters out there don’t watch. And PLEASE will the networks PLEASE get rid of all of these stupid “reality” shows – get a life people! I am so tired of them they suck!
    TV watching is to be “entertaining” or “educational” – not this “reality” drivels! Besides any one that thinks they are real needs a reality check themselves, there is nothing real about them. They make me sick! They should have to pay to be on them, not paid for being on them! Go figure…
