I gave 2 Broke Girls a chance, but I'm done. It's just not funny or entertaining - I'm surprised I sat through the whole episode last night. I love Kat Dennings, but not enough to slog through however long this show might last.

Exactly.
I'm willing to give it one more episode, but nothing about the show really grabbing me.

The preview commercial that aired last night (during Terra?) was enough for me to wish Kat well in whatever her next venture is because 2 Broke doesn't look good.

I think they are about done with new episodes, but has anyone caught Dark Matters with John Noble on The Science Channel?

It can be a little hokey, but some of the stories are fascinating.

damn. I'll watch it tonight and see if I agree. Oh well. I certainly could stand to watch fewer shows, so I won't shed a tear if I stop watching it.

And did anyone have money on The Playboy Club being the first cancellation of the season? Guess I can stop watching that one, too.

The Playboy Club was not that bad. The mobster theme/ politics was kind of fun. I am guessing the production costs were high, so when the viewers were not big numbers, it was doomed.



TeraNova, your expectations are so low now, you may find yourself thinking it is not that bad.
I find 'expectations' can skew opinions. Especially when they are sky high.

Yeah, I was getting into it more by the end of the second episode.

I had a feeling Playboy Club wouldn't last. Seemed like just a bad rip off of the whole Mad Men aesthetic.

And bad timing, too, because Mad Men ain't as hot as it was a couple of years ago.

New Girl is three for three. Really liking this show. Thinking about making a dedicated thread for it.

Since it's like the only show to get a full season pick up thus far, go for it. I still need to watch, haven't caught a single episode so far.

Ringer seems to have stepped it up at the end of last night's episode.

yeah, it had to get there

now, the question? do they like what they got?
logic says they should prefer this one to the original
that is the girlfriend and the husband, not so much for the GF's husband,
he is overdue for a Buffing.

A little surprised they got there this quickly...expected it to be an end of season cliff hanger type thing.

I'm wondering if she bumps off the GF before she can tell.

They might as well have done a Dick York with the character if thats all they were gonna do.
Still bummed that Wayans only had one episode but I like the show.

This lol.


Also

NBC has canceled its controversial series The Playboy Club.

The retro show starred Eddie Cibrian and Amber Heard.

The show garnered just 3.4 million viewers on Monday night.

It got off to a slow start with its Sept. 19 premiere -- prior to which The Parents Television Council and other groups had spoken out against its sexual content.

But, in good news for new shows, the network has picked up comedies Whitney and Up All Night for full seasons.

I still haven't watched any of Ringer yet. I plugged my laptop into my TV Monday night to watch the first few eps that I'd downloaded, and the sound was all messed up. They were all talking like a 45 played at 33 1/3.

I thought it was supposed to be like that at first, like a weird dream sequence .... but no. So I bought the pilot off iTunes (#2 downloaded fine, #3 and #4 are on my DVR). Just haven't watched yet.
