    You are the most ridiculous troll I have seen here post. You go to every single news that has H50 in its title (syndication ratings, live ratings – everything) and you rant how badly the show is doing. You mock the fans of the show for no good reason – your comments like “enjoy your show while you can” and other bullying comments like that are childish and stupid. And you still keep doing that so don’t flater yourself – nobody here cares about you freak!

    “You go to every single news that has H50 in its title (syndication ratings, live ratings – everything)”

    And you know that because YOU ARE THERE TOO!! LOL

    There is a huge difference between my posts and yours. YOU go and say nothing thoughtful or intelligent about the show and its situation. YOU go to cheer like a teenager over their home high school team.
    I go to discuss and analyze the FACTS as they are which apparently really bothers you because you can NOT argue the FACTS with me so you call me childish names.

    Every time you attack ME instead of my FACTS you are showing that you KNOW what I say is correct and since you can’t argue with your own FACTS you call me names.

    It really is funny, I must say. With every post you are just reinforcing that you realize my FACTS are true and that they bother you enough to actually post JUST TO INSULT ME PERSONALLY.

    Sticks and stones— you know the rest.

    I am a freak, a troll, oh my. Enjoy your show while you can? That is a bullying comment? But calling me a troll and a freak and other idiotic names is NOT bullying?

    Fangirls, don’t kill the messenger. I WISH you didn’t care about me. That would make my day. But apparently you care more about me than anyone else here because YOU KEEP TAGGING ME.

    Ignore me PLEASE! PLEASE! PLEASE! This is the third time I have asked you to do that. Stop stalking my posts; the posts that “nobody cares about”. ;-)

    Randy you wrote, (in the first of his many posts), that: “1) CBS cleverly says that Hawaii Five-O is winning it’s time slot”.

    The only statement in the press release about a CBS show winning it’s time slot is a reference to Undercover Boss winning the 8:00 PM time slot in viewers and adults 25-54. There’s is nothing in the article about Hawaii Five-O winning the 9:00 time slot.

    It’s obvious to anyone and everyone that you clearly hate Hawaii Five-O for some reason and feel the need to express those feelings over and over again in one absurd post after another. Anytime there’s an article about the program at this website, there’s Randy with his endless negative comments.

  • Randy

    TV Viewer, unlike YOU I actually read a variety of articles and this is how it was written in another article:

    • “Hawaii Five-0” is up 27 per cent, compared to last year, with 10.54 million vs. 8.28 million viewers for its new time slot, with a 64 pct boost in the coveted adults 18 to 49 demos — 1.8 rating, compared to 1.1. There’s an uptick, too, of 653 pct in adults 25 to 54, a 2.6 rating from 1.6. The network reports a 14 pct growth in total Friday viewers, compared to its Monday average last season, winning its time slot now.

    It isn’t the same article as here; it was more complete in this one. HERE it does say that. Sorry for the confusion.

    TV Viewer, or should I say another H50 fangirl, as I told AnnaG, you would only know what I post if you were going around to the same articles and reading them and probably commenting on them your way. So why can YOU have YOUR opinion and I not have mine?

    Facts are facts. I may be wrong and I have agreed with intelligent posters who say facts that make sense about the show continuing next season,posts YOU obviously have ignored in favor of finding the posts that sting your fangirl sensibilities, but I will continue to post here how and with whom I please. Deal with it.

    Thank God for the 1st amendment of the US constitution.

    Love Hawaii Five-0 and Blue Bloods!

    Randy, I am not a fangirl, as you prefer to describe almost everyone who likes Hawaii Five-O and I will be contacting the people who run Zap2it in protest against your negative, offensive comments.
    The 1st amendment does not give you the right to insult people and write what ever you feel like.
