    Do you have Massive Monster Mayhem at 8 pm on Nicktoons and Star vs. the Forces of Evil at 8 pm on Disney XD?


  2. Ryan

    Do you have the 2 premiere episode of Pop’s ‘Hot Dates’ (8pm & 8:30pm), and the premiere of ‘Meow Manor’ (UP, 8pm)? Thanks!


  3. Mathew

    Hoping you’re the worst gets renewed


    • Destiny

      It should be. It was never a high rated show, but FX were happy to renew regardless in the past. One more season perhaps?


  4. Destiny

    Well at least The Blacklist didn’t adjust down. It was staring a 0.8 in the face unrounded in the prelims. SVU & PD should rebound next week without a doubt.


    • Destiny

      Wait. The Voice is airing in SVUs slot next week? That’s odd. Chicago PD is definitely going back up again, and hopefully The Blacklist too.
