I was going to say not gonna watch unless McConaughey was shirtless, but the preview clip delivered in less than 20 seconds.

Million Second Quiz is a garbled mess. Bad production, but hey, it's live so maybe that's the reason.

It sucks, they moved Always Sunny and the League to FXX which I don't get.

Derek on Netflix is good. It's not your typical Ricky Gervais comedy and more of a drama than anything. If you can get past that, you may like it. Think I'd describe it as sweet, not for everyone

Kind of a weird episode of HoW this week with the cholera stuff. Also the Swede's scene was odd as always.

I watched the first two episodes of the newsroom, then forgot about it. It came up in conversation last night and then I realized I hadn't been watching it. I think after I watch BrBa tonight, I'm going to work on catching up.

like last year, after the first 2 or 3 it picks up. Still a little too relationshipy for me, but it's quality stuff. I still stand by saying that the blonde girl is one of the most annoying characters on tv.

I just watched the Range War ep last night, the return of the Swede. Think I am now 4 weeks behind.

Not only is her character bad, but her haircut makes her actually look like some type of troll and it's so bad that I just automatically assume she is a terrible person in real life because of it.

Anyone watch either of the new Fox shows last night: Dads and Brooklyn 99?

I missed most of Dads and only saw the last few minutes, so I don't have an opinion.

Brooklyn 99, I liked it. Just like any new show it has its issues and has to develop the characters, but I think it has promise.

Sleepy Hollow on fox was pretty cool. Orlando Jones doesn't quite fit, but other than that, it's looking like a good show

I am recording the replay of Brooklyn Ninety Nine later this week.

But I'm looking forward to Blacklist with James Spader next Monday. Have the DVR set already for the Season Pass.

Yeah, I heard the critics didn't like the show, but I like both actors and will give it a chance. Again, usually new shows start off weird, so I don't dump it after an episode or two.

It's your typical straight/goofball cop show. Andy Samburg is the goofball cop. Kind of like Chuck IMO where they have their crimes and stuff, but it is a comedy overall.
