    That's all I needed to know!


    Does anyone really think that Parks and Recreation is going to make it to another season? The only reason why I even still watch it is because I'm too lazy to de-program it from my DVR, and usually I've got nothing better to do then waste 20 minutes on it. If it were dropped I really wouldn't miss it...

    Might have to check out Mercy simply because it has Michelle Trachtenberg.

    Re: TV Upfronts Week: NBC

    Football aside, the only shows of theirs that I watch are Heroes and Chuck, and Heroes is on the brink for me. I'd originally heard Chuck was moving to Fridays, which would have effectively killed it. I'm glad to see it's staying on Mondays even if I have to wait until spring for it.

    Also looking forward to SNL: Weekend Update Thursday - it's about the only thing on SNL I can even stand anymore.

    Re: TV Upfronts Week: NBC

    Do you work for WHO13 or NBC or something? Usually the only people that care about upfronts are those in TV.

    As far as the programming goes, The Office is good. I hate the fact that Friday Night Lights is moving to summer and 30 Rock is ok. Other than that, NBC's prime sucks. But then again, I think most of programming on ABC, CBS, FOX & NBC sucks.

    I figured Earl wouldn't survive another year.

    Excited for Heroes in the Fall rather than the Spring. I like Parks & Recreation. I think it's hilarious.

    It's no wonder that NBC is in last place.

    ???

    It's a better line-up than what we've seen so far for either FOX or ABC so far...

    Thank god Chuck is coming back. That's probably the only show I watch regularly on network TV.

    I watch heros but only because nothing better in on during that time slot.

    I read somewhere that Earl could very well be picked up by Fox. I didn't mind that show, but I really only watched it because it was on before the Office.
