    CBS was great Thursday night although TBBT was not so funny and The Millers only made me laugh once.
    The Crazy Ones had its best and funniest episode so far, TAAHM was okay and Elementary was awesome.
    Go CBS!

    I still believe that Two and a Half Men is a terrible lead-in for Elementary. I miss Person of Interest on Thursdays and I still miss Vegas and I still want to see a JAG reunion movie…….Please CBS!!
