    NBC should put all new shows on this night, shipping at least one of “SVU” and “CF” to Fridays. Three new dramas, or two new dramas with “Grimm” leading off the night, might be the trick to turning this night around.

    @forg: You’re kidding right? Bill does nothing but throw his ego around and bully posters thats all he ever does here. That doesnt help that only runs people away by his childishness and egotistical blathering.

    I remember a time, two, three years ago, when you could actually have a civilized discussion on these threads. The comments nowadays have certainly devolved.

    Agree 110%. I’m spending less time here and when I do drop by, usually stop reading the comments fairly quickly since I’m a little past the 1st grade which is the level of maturity so many commenters appear to have regressed to/stopped at.

    The flop this and flop that name puns have become sooooo tiresome as have the my show is better than your show BS. One wonders if these are actually comments by rival websites attempting to poison the well here @ TVbtN.

    Don’t get me wrong, the occasional poking a stick into the hornets nest can be fun but too many here are one note wonders … you’d think they’d get tired of it but I guess simple things amuse simple folk.


    LOL people like you really have issues calling people simple ( ego much?) then claiming its funny to you when the hornets nest is poked occassionally? People like you are called sociopaths enjoy your title .

    THE MIDDLE and especially THE NEIGHBORS are two of the funniest shows on the air. The Sue/Darrin linkup to Axel’s dismay may provide great fodder in the future. THE NEIGHBORS gets funnier and funnier every week. PUH-LEEZE ABC….give it a chance to grow next year!

    Hawaii Five-0 must be a great show because they are constantly being compared to other shows. The fans who compare their favorite shows unfavorably to Hawaii Five-O and not to other shows proves their insecurity and fear of Hawaii Five-0!!!!!!

    First off, learn how to quote a msg you’re replying to … 17 lines just to add your 2 lines of simplistic pseudo mumbo jumbo? Please.

    Second, if you’re going to try and play doctor, at least try to be in the ballpark instead of pulling words you heard on your fav TV show outa your butt and using them in a sentence.

    Thirdly, try to understand the difference between “occasionally” and what I was describing which was the constant, repetitive snarking or use of a lame pun … life ain’t black & white little girl, it’s mainly grey.

    X Factor really is a copy cat of Idol last night shoewd that even more with the group numbers. Just because you call it Bootcamp instead of Hollywood week doesn’t make it any different. (Oh and I guess people have to know how to dance- sorry Susan Boyle) And Im also tired of all the pimping by Simon and co. Ok, we get who is going to go on the live shows. One thing that really keeps bothering me is Stacy Francis and the constant portrayal of her as a stay at home mom who just woke up one day and decided to audition for XF to follow a singing dream. Only a few outlets have reported that Francis has starred on various Broadway shows She even created a role in Footloose the Musical so lets not pretend that she hasn’t had her chances This could lead to a backlash but so far , most media are going with simon’s story lines instead of the truth. In general, if you look at all the talented singers and dancers on Broadway and musical theatre in general, its amazing that you don’t have more of these people becoming big stars; they are much more talented than the folks on most of these singing competitions .And will someone cast Rachel Crow as the new little orphan annie or shirley temple. Jeez. Xf also should have had a separate category for children under 18 they seem to have a lot of good ones and you only have 3 boy and girl slots for anyone from 12-30 thats a big range. And as in the UK version, it seems the producers will take contestants and turn them into boy and girl bands
