    Jersey Shore won’t be saving your ass MTV! Ever since they appointed the VH1 prez to oversee MTV, all he has done is ressurrect moribund shows! Stop being lazy and come up with new ideas!


  2. Destiny

    Good night for Siren, it’s no doubt well on its way to a second season. NBC should rename Champions “Losers” because it’s stinking up the night and forcing Chicago Fire to grow from literally nothing.


    • Amaury

      Don’t talk about Champions like that! :( It just needs a better lead-in, like The Middle on ABC helping Fresh Off the Boat or Black-ish, such as this past Tuesday or March 20 for a pre-Roseanne example.


    • FlopWatch

      There is literally no good reason to keep Champions on: W&G ended and already left an awkward hole there, it’s bombing so hard there especially for a non Friday night, pretty much anything would do better, etc.


    • Jordan

      Still saying Atlanta will be canceled ? What a comment that was.


      • Destiny

        No, it just shows how incredibly poor your reading comprehension is. I said and I quote, that if it kept dropping the next season would be the last. That’s factoring in any resulting drops that it would get during its third season too. If you’re going to attack my comments, don’t play the fool. It was clear as day for anyone to read at the time.

    Rachel and Hannity still at 3m plus, is Tucker fading into the sunset?
