There’s just nothing worth watching on NBC, period. This is the whole reason why the History Channel is pulling in big numbers.

Do you mean to tell us that acceptance of faggotry as the be-all/end-all does not lead to commercial success in the marketplace??? NO!!!!! I just can’t believe it!!!

Blacklist has one single actor. The rest of them on the show are marginal actors. Even the cast of Duck Dynasty are better actors than most on Blacklist.

I admit...the script is five-star....but I kinda wonder who the heck does the hiring for the cast.

Blacklist is fascinating, and Bader reminds me of Donofrio with his weird head cocking and tongue / mouth movements.

We love Blacklist and the occasional Following

I like Sleepy Hpllow only for the occasional, token references to the disparity between colonial think and modern think, otherwise it's beginning to resemble National Treasure

All in all, some of the writing for these drama's is wonderful ... imo

"Sean Saves the World debuted to 4.9 million viewers and a 1.6 rating in the adults 18-49 demographic back in October. Its most recent outing paled in comparison, only drawing 2.6 million and 0.7."

Maybe the ultimate reaction of the 18-49 demographic was something like "ick."

Yep CBS all the way to 9:30. I do watch Big Bang Theory, The Millers, and The Crazy Ones, but I never could get into Two and a Half Men. Then at 10 o’clock it is Scandal.

The crazy ones? What do you think of Sarah Michelle Gellar’s performance... and wasn’t the Golden Globe category she won created this year for her to win? ( I can ask this :) )

My wife likes this, but I didn’t. There is absolutely nothing on network to compare with cable shows like “Justified” and “True Detective.”

Sarah Michelle Gellar’s performance.

Well at first I didn’t think she was that good but as the show progresses I think she has improved. It was the People’s Choice and I definitely think they wanted to give her an award (probably for past work). I just hope the show is renewed. It does ok and would be a hit on NBC, but CBS has such a high threshold that mediocre ratings are in danger.

Seems I was reading just yesterday that this show was among the forefront of new gay-friendly TV that was going to storm the ratings and bring NBC, among others, back.

Well. Bye.

lol. NBC is so done. They are so desperate that they want to put Jay Leno at 10 o’clock every night AGAIN. They did that years ago and blew up in their face. It also destroyed the 10 o’clock shows and when they finally got rid of Leno at 10, the shows never could recover. I can’t stand Leno for that reason alone.

Drop the terrible comedies and see if you can come up with another “Black List”. Can James Spader do two shows at once?

If you're not DVRing "Elementary" then you're missing a great show.

My problem with that show is I can’t stand that female lead.

Bader is terrific.
Like the Following also.

Don’t watch any gay infused sitcoms.

I don't watch any unfunny sitcoms. Gay or straight, what passes for comedy on TV these days is for the most part absolute crap. "Big Bang Theory" is about all I can stomach, and Sheldon's getting tiresome.

We'll have to disagree on that one; I think Liu does a good job as a female Watson. But Johnny Lee Miller makes the program. And it's well written, unlike most of the crap on TV.

We pulled the cable connection out of the wall 20 some years ago. I put together a nice surround system and any garbage that comes in to my house I have only me to blame.

That’s funny because the same company that owns NBC owns the History channel.

And in real life Jim Parsons, who plays Sheldon, is gay. The majority of Americans don't care when it comes to the show, when it starts preaching the gay screed the viewership will go down.

Mrs. B.S. Roberts and I much prefer Benedict Cumberbatch in "Sherlock". But Jeremy Brett will always be the best.

I agree on Cumberbatch, but three episodes every year or so isn't enough. I love Sherlock Holmes, have read all of Conan Doyle's books, and was prepared to hate "Elementary" but some how Yu and Miller make it work.

**NBC has shut down production... **

LOL! this reminds me of 1968 LAUGH IN. A skit of a newsman reporting news of the future! “And this is just in! President Goldie Hawn has just asked NBC to stop the bombing!” (laughter).

Context: Johnson was asked to stop the bombing of North Vietnam to help Hubert Humphrey’s chance to defeat Nixon. NBC had one of the worst years of TV programing canceled.

When Stargate Universe and Lost Girl started with the Lezbo stuff I turned them both off. BTW I feel the same way about gratuitous Hetero sex as well.
