@Matt, could the rest of us get that functionality, please?

@fortyseven: haha, yes, I have the power to edit/delete comments and simply added a few to my original take here.


Staff members can edit/delete comments?! Matt's comment was shorter the first time I read it.


time slot hop scotch with house. why don't they just leave it at 9.. same thing with New girl


@Carissa, it's overly complicated. New Girl-WTF?

Matt richenthal

@Carissa: No, I wrote it and I find it confusing! You should have seen the original Fox press release. It doesn't help when the network is changing time slots for some shows; airing special previews of others; doing two-night premieres; giving Glee an odd hiatus.


Am I the only one who finds this confusing?
