    “Their 8pm show never older, their 9pm show never weaker.”

    One more thing. You can consider this statement of mine as opinion but these are easily verifiable facts. There hasn’t been a comedy at 8 in its eighth season, nor a veteran show this old since “Gunsmoke.” And besides the literal numbers, there has not been a less-quality show at 9pm ever. Sure, you can chalk that up to opinion and offer a dismissive tone. Yet, considering the legendary shows that have been in this slot for decades and even the quick-lived short-termers like “Cybill” and “George & Leo”, I really don’t think it’s too much of an opinion to believe “2 Broke Girls” is worse than all of them.

    Why does the press release say Vegas swept its time period and was highest premiere since such and such. If its such a bad show?

    I liked it. It’s different because it takes place in the 60s and I like Dennis quid and Jason from life on mars.
    It’s different. Not the best show but still better then some on tv by far. I like it better then CM that show just gets weirder and weirder.

    I really enjoyed the comedy block of Fox. I’m happy for Ben and Kate. The critics are saying the truth that this sitcom has a heart. I hope Raising Hope will breakout in its underwhelming ratings performance. I know it’s too soon to tell but I think NG will get the post-Superbowl slot. It will notch higher.

    I like NCIS but the story was lame.

    Tim, If people wanted to think, the Kenyan would not be President and doing as good as he is with the country in the toilet.

    Vegas was so great, but it is in the wrong slot! This would make such a great sunday night show. I hope CBS will rethink their schedule.

    TMP has the feel of an NBC show-lacks funny material.

  • moraliste

    I didn’t read all the posts, but from what I did read, PP’s 1.9 attracted nary a peep out of its once rabid fans. Is this the ” new normal” without GA as a lead-in? I assume GA is still on Thursdays, and they’re just timing their debut for maximum impact?

  • Legal Girl in Florida

    NCIS….Doesn’t get much better than that!!!! And, after all these years it is still going strong. What a group of charachters on this show. Awesome.
