Big Bang and Person of Interest are awesome! They deserve good ratings. Up All Night needs to be canceled. Not only does it suck, no one watches it. And it's a shame that more people don't watch Wipeout.


Glad to see that 30 Rock is up.
Grey's Anatomy is a shoe in for renewal.
Positive Private Practice will be renewed for at least 13 episodes or something. It'll be only 2 episodes from syndication once this season is over. It'd be stupid not to renew it.

Uncle jackass

It's amazing how bored people were on a Thursday night. It seems that viewers returned pretty much on all shows (a lot of surely renewed shows). Well, it seems that Person of Interest is going to renewed with these numbers as well as Greys Anatomy (maybe not some of the cast). As for the all the hate for 'The Finder,' it is just a substitute for Bones (for many reasons; although I turned the brain to watch it).


I have failed to watch beyond the first episode of Big Bang Theory.


Bah! I hate person of interest!
