ABC: haven't been enthused with their lieup in years
NBC:Heroes, etc...This channel hits it big for me these days
CBS: Ghost Whisperer...just Ghost Whisperer
FOX Bones and House do it for me. Simpsons got old five years ago, as for the other cartoons...never caught my eye that much.
I must be of the smal percentage that isn't thrilled to see LOST return. I got lost back halfway through season 1, and still can't take an interest beyond that. Grey's...saw the preview for tonight's on TV, and I must say the only thing that caught my eye was the fact that they showed bits of Seattle I just saw a little under a month ago. Ugly Betty's the only show ABC's got going for it for me anyways.

Haven't watched the simpsons in years - did I miss the Richard Dean Anderson "Macgyver" episode? While Family Guy is near brilliant at times - I can not understand how the rather unfunny "American Dad" is still on the air? It boogles the mind.

I really didn't find anything too informative, excep that 24 is going to have a 2 hour ep next week (which means no Prison Break).

Heroes, Lost, Scrubs, and Office should all have some good stuff coming up. But home come there was no Office info?



Oh, and I have no interest in American Idol whatsoever. So don't blame me for its crushing everyone else in the ratings.

What about CI and SVU?! Now there is a hit! My money is on NBC for sure!



And I am tired of hearing about Grey's....blah blah as much as I am tired of Ugly Betty...come on ABC lets see something. FOX:American Idol is getting old, no just because of it being old but also because of the cheep imitation shows. I was hoping for more from the Sweeps. The only good thing on ABC is Extreme Makeover: Home Edition.



CBS is kind of blah too.

ABC- Yeah Grey's! Lost doesn't need a review of what happened so far., but yay for Lost!

NBC- Heroes!!! That's All!

CW- Where is Veronica Mars and One Tree Hill?
