    Do you have ‘Year of The Rabbit’ (IFC) season finale at 10:30PM? Thanks!

    Can “Stumptown” possibly earn a pity renewal?!


    • Niallerz1992

      I’d say it might get one. With pilots not in production and the next TV season not starting up, a lot of bubble shows may get short season pick ups, 10-13 episodes. Since a lot of new shows won’t be ready to film.
      But we will have to wait and see what happens.


  3. Man, Survivor is a beast. 20 years old and still going strong.


    • Jilm Crimthins

      the oldest shows are the best performing – old habits die hard!

      NCIS, Survivor, Grey’s Anatomy, The Voice, Hawaii Five-O, Blue Bloods, etc.
