Super stoked revenge returned strong! Such an amazing show!!!!


The ratings for "Don't Trust the B" are really disappointing. The humor is so different than a sitcom and the show is so funny ... but the drop off from "Modern Family" and that it can't even equal reruns of other shows probably means it will soon be gone. Oh well.
