What do you think? Are you surprised that the holiday repeats can do as well as they do? Why do you think Dancing with Stars had such a poor season? Should ABC cut back to one cycle a year? What were you watching last night?

    I really am sorry that Vagas is doing so poorly. I like the cast and the small town sheriff angle. If they would get rid of some of the glitzy stuff and stick to the small town stuff I would like it much better. I really like the interaction between the father, son and brother.
    About other shows of the evening, what would life be without NCIS and offspring.

    Well, ABC SHOULD CANCEL DWTS’S!!!!!! Obviously Vegas isn’t gonna survive, Unforgettable never dropped to 1.6 in the demo and they canceled it, well they revived it, but that’s besides the point. People are seeing how dull the New Normal is, Go on is far from perfect and it is way better. I’m so GLAD that New girl has taken a nose dive. Zooey is a great actress and she deserves better. The Mindy project seems to be the new Community, low rated and not great. The other 2 sitcoms on fox I haven’t checked out, because they are on the wrong network, then again there isn’t a right network it seems, unless the show is called The neighbors HTF did that show get a full season?. Well, if any show is gonna break the Law & Order/Gunsmoke record, it’s gonna be NCIS, obviously the spin off isn’t going anywhere anytime son either. And as always, F**K the voice, but I’ll give it this, it gives Go on and Revolution good ratings.
