    You know Im really happy that supernatural does that well in repeats, I hope that it’s maybe getting viewers or something

  • nas_the ring

    Covert affairs is still the worst show on usa network and so boring!!!! don’t watch at all

  • amadeus

    @nick please numbers for:
    Amazing world of gumball @7
    Dragons riders of berk @ 7:30

  • parker

    Great to see Gloria Votsis return as Alex on WC. I always enjoy the episodes she’s in & I think she has great chemistry with Matt Bomer. That being said, I didn’t like the ending…it seemed as if she burned a bridge. Felt like the writers did it to set up Neal/Sara pairing as the “end game”, which doesn’t sit well with me.

  • bonesisthename

    See ya, Beverly Hills Nannies. Those numbers are pitiful.

  • G

    Lovely to see Alex/Gloria in White Collar again yes. I always love watching her in the show. However, the writers didn’t do a fact check yet again…the deposed czarina and her hand maid story was ridiculous, considering that the monarchy in Bulgaria fell in 1944. That would make Neal Caffrey look really, really good for a man his age.

  • G

    @parker The writers have been hammering that into the viewers skulls for quite some time now. Alex is the female Neal, or at least his former self, therefore Neal and Alex wouldn’t work out as anything more than just a fling. Sara (and I do NOT agree with this, but it makes sense inside other people’s heads) is the “perfect” match, since she’s basically the female Peter Burke. Alex, bad…Sara, good…and I am bored with all of it.

  • Tom

    @nas C’mon, Covert Affairs certainly isn’t high art, but the the worst USA Network program is clearly Necessary Roughness. After chopping up this season’s storyline in a bunch of ridiculous subplots, the writers completely blew the last episode by putting Danni into a totally nonsensical relationship. The plot no longer makes much sense, so I’ll bet the show’s ratings plummet when it returns from hiatus

  • Richard Steven Hack

    Covert Affairs has been very good this season, except for the problem that the FSB spy subplot wasn’t going anywhere apparently. This week’s episode cleared that up, with Jay’s murder tied in – and then the massive surprise ending which I definitely did not see coming! It’s going to be interesting seeing how that gets dealt with!

    I liked Alex being back on Covert Affairs AND I liked how she outwitted everyone. I do think they should dump Sara as Neal’s love interest and give him someone he has to “hide from” the FBI. Alex would be good for that except for, as others here noted, their similarities.

    That’s why I wish they would bring Eliza Dushku back as the Egyptian antiquities fence – she’d be perfect: a criminal, but not necessarily involved in direct competition with Neal or under the FBI’s constant watch, and even hotter than Alex.

  • debra

    hell 1.0 is still a cancellation number so don’t get too excited.

  • http://tvbythenumbers.com Bill Gorman

    “hell 1.0 is still a cancellation number so don’t get too excited.”

    Huh? Not on cable.

    I’m not even sure what show you’re talking about, but a 1.0 18-49 rating gets you renewed on cable.

  • debra

    it’s up to usa not us really.

  • Tessa

    This season of White Collar is definitely my favorite and possibly the best of the entire run of the show. I loved Tuesday’s episode and Alex’s return was well timed. She lit up the screen and she and Neal definitely have a natural chemistry that has never been present in Sara and Neal’s scenes. I know it’s not possible to have Neal and Alex end up together because of who she is and what she’s done. But I pray to seven gates of heaven they don’t make Sara the end game. Bring in some other love interest, and this time, please develop her personality beyond smirk and scorn so we’d have something to like her for.

  • Mare

    I don’t agree that Alex on White Collar couldn’t be end game for Neal. She is his equal, they have a long history together and know each other well, finish each other’s sentences and have both used each other at times for what they have wanted. Neal is the one who got stung this time around, but she was stung a couple of times with him going after Kate, lying about why he wanted her help to find the music box and not splitting the treasure with her or letting her know about it, and then going for Sara. I LOVE THE TENSION with Neal and Alex, they are smart and can spar and have the best romantic scenes too. Neal is a conman not a goodie goodie. So, I prefer the back and forth with Alex. They need to get her back on the episodes at least a few times a season. It becomes alive with those two and Mozzie.

  • Mare

    One more thing about Alex and Neal. They are both currently living off stolen treasures.

  • amadeus

    @nick again numders for amazing world of gumball and dragons riders of berk aired in cartoon network

  • amadeus

    i mean Numbers

  • debra

    no one can have an opinion around hear.

  • panda22

    Covert Affairs skews older.

    RE: Coma

    I remember loving the Bujold/Douglas/Widmark version in 1978, and was excited to hear about the remake. I like Pasquale, Woods, Burstyn and Davis (but loathe Dreyfus and Ambrose). So I recorded both nights and eagerly sat down to watch it. I lasted 20 minutes. It was, in a word, HORRIBLE. And it reminded me all too well why I dislike that annoying Ambrose woman. It was shockingly pedantic, silly and amateurish. A true embarrassment for all the name talent involved (well, except Ambrose). Bleech.
