    Ah, this always makes me laugh. Of course The Bachelorette would beat Masterchef and American Ninja Warrior in Women!

    Because women obviously don’t like cooking shows (i.e. Master Chef)?!?! (insert huge eye roll here)

    How can women watch the bachelorette and believe it is real?…. Let’s be serious… They are not going to marry, it is not real.. Everything is planned is a f)($&$@$( TV show… There are better things to watch..

    Hooray for Castle! Best show on Tv. Everyone please start watching old seasons over the summer to prepare for Season5 in the fall… won’t be sorry. Best writing and acting ever.
