    The dirt and troubles in Applegates life garner better ratings than any of her last 3 shows. Imagine that!

    NBC was so foolish to get rid of this GREAT SHOW!!!

  • Jay

    They need to stop doing eps linking these celebs to some important historical figure. This shows so much more interesting when it tells an emotional story

    @TomK even though I LOVED the show you cant blame NBC for canceling it, the ratings were jus awful.
