    Shark Tank, the only bright spot worth mentioning. :)

    Last Man Standing is a terible lead-out. It killed Cougar Town. It killed Malibu Country. It killed Happy Endings. Now its killing The Neighbors.

    Wouldn’t that be lead-in? It’s leading in to the show that comes after.

    I would have rather had another season of Malibu County over The Neighbors, but it is what it is.

    I never got into Last man Standing; then again, I never got into Home Improvement. I do love Toy Story, though, and The Santa Claus was enjoyable enough. :)

  • ABC’s mistake

    I miss Malibu. Bring back Red!

    “Last Man Standing is a terible lead-out. It killed Cougar Town. It killed Malibu Country. It killed Happy Endings. Now its killing The Neighbors.”

    Cougar Town killed itself with horrid writing, Malibu Country was sampled with a 2.3 rating, and Happy Endings never aired after LMS as far as I can remember.

  • I LOVE TV!
