    Nice night for Castle!

  • McGramm

    God this Matt guy is a whinny biotch.

  • LOL

    @Matt

    ummmmm there are 3 smaller US markets in the NHL than Pittsburgh. the penguins also have the biggest star in the league…if you can even call anyone in that league a star lol. Miami is the 16th largest market in the country, Pittsburgh is 23rd.

  • Grant

    though I see people bashing Real World but, I like it (admit it’s not a great season) but why does MTV have to disrespect its viewers by suddenly dropping the 2nd airing of r.w. my dvr recorded Happy Gilmore instead, pissed me off especially since that epp. Don’t reair. Also their the worst at following a schedule.

  • Torrid

    “…God this Matt guy is a whinny biotch….”, come, come u do a real disservice to biotches everywhere :)
    —————————————
    Matt’s been whining like this since last season – I got tired of his and others here (u know who you are) ridiculous, over-the-top pro-hockey anti-NBA vitriol – with the barely concealed bigotry so decided to take on their ludicrous spinning of the paltry NHL numbers with just sheer truth. Its been a great ride so far …. a lie, however you spin it – cannot negate simple facts as Matt is finding out. He thinks people who do not buy the idiocy must hate hockey – but what’s there to hate Mattie – the sport is struggling to gain any traction in america and has been doing so for almost 100 years (pre-NBA) – you’d think by now they would learn that its just ain’t gonna happen for hockey in the great US sports arena – it will always be a niche sport with limited appeal to the vast majority of americans (of all ethnicities).

    Just wanna repeat a suggestion I made to hockey fans last season – tell commishioner Bettman to start paying money – cash – cheese – moolah to american fans to pay attention to hockey and the numbers may come up to – maybe 50% of the NBA’s numbers. Make it like $50 per person per game – that should be about right I think :)

    I am impressed with ‘CASTLE’s performance on CABLE TV. I have to admit it’s the TNT network that got me hooked on the series and now I watch it on both ABC and TNT. Can’t believe I missed it on ABC for 4 years before TNT started to air the series. Now I wouldn’t miss it for the whole. It’s my favorite series. WAY TO GO CASTLE!!

  • david

    I would love it if Daria came back.

  • david

    @ Judy that is how i found the series to by watching it on TNT back in December.
