its sad to see king of the hill go but it was getting just a little stale so its good its leaving on a good note. though i'd prefer watching it over the god awful cleveland show thats replacing it. judge should of come up with something good to replace it like instead of just leaving DX. man theres gonna be so much on today DX. i guess i'll watch eureka since i want to see the finale and i can catch the rest of these shows on hulu later.
