  1. The Returned sounds interesting! I think Super Fun Night will get cancelled in its first few weeks!

  2. Will you please get the programs listing for TV Land straightened out. It is totally out of sync with what is showing on TV Land. EVERYBODY DOES NOT LOVE RAYMOND>

  3. Where are all the westerns promised??
    The Rifleman, Paladin, Wyatt Earp….etc.

  4. Isn’t “Drop Dead Diva” coming back this summer??? Really liked this show.

  5. Where’s the Alice in Wonderland coming on ABC and Dracula coming on NBC. And there isn’t actually a single CBS pilot I’m going to try; they all look like crap.
