    Their existence must be pathetic and useless, instead of focusing on reading about things that you like, you read about things they do not like to be happy with the defeat ….

    1.You are wrong!

    Holiday programming easily beat a new Nikita. Why is Nikita still around?

    @ Alice Br and DeanW

    Are you stupid ? You are fighting about The Good Wife ! OK it’ll be Renewed (I think for two more Seasons) but that’s true the quality had decreased since Season 2.
    If CBS moves it to Friday the Show is dead and if it stays on Sunday it’s also dead !

  • John A

    I see 1 more Season of TGW and it will be on Friday. CBS would be stupid to keep it on Sunday.

  • CBSviewer

    I hope CBS will cancel Elementary it would be horrible on Sunday. Hawaii Five-0, Survivor or a new reality are the best candidates to replace it.

  • John A

    Elementary wont be cancelled. Its doing ok unless it nosedives in Spring it will get renewed.

  • American

    Ha ha, CW still beat CBS. That’s pretty bad.
