    park avenue 666 is a good show and deserves a chance, i’m so sick of getting invested in new shows and getting shot down, whatever happened to giving new shows a chance to grow, CHEERS would’ve been canceled in it’s first season if NBC hadn’t decided to stand by it and give it a chance, sigh

    Football will probably always win Sunday ratings, I’m glad to see Revenge is up, too. It’s one of my favorite shows. I love that its ratings are increasing while several other shows are stagnant or declining.
