American Ninja Warrior is listed as new on Esquitonit, but technically it's the same episode that premieredlast night on NBC since NBC is now airing the full two hours each week. Still, I might catch it again. Maybe. Then again, I'm actually looking at giving America's Got Talent a chance this time around.

Fargo...and, eek, on Tuesdays will I only have PLL to watch earlier in the evening? I like how everyone is trying the non spoiler description of Gus and Molly have a "set back" in their investigation. Yeah, that was a set back.
