Who does their research?  "My Boyfriend's Back" was a hit for the Angels, not the Chiffons (as they had Bergeron say and Tonioli repeated).  The Chiffons’ cover made no waves; perhaps DwtS's staff...

Seriously?  Of course I know that the posts here that television is dangerous are in jest.

My late neighbor, sadly, was completely serious.

So TV is dangerous, huh?

I had a nutty neighbor, long since deceased, who subscribed to a lot of crazy ideas. One of them — I've no idea where he got it — was that television is bad because it...

Thanks so much, Trip.

Weren't WOCH and WOCK related at one time? WOCH, losing RF49, might be sharing RF4 with WOCK.

I've seen reports quoted in other threads that WSNS is joining WMAQ on RF33....

No. TBS aired a half-hour installment a few weeks ago. I thought it was a preview of Season 3 but this week's broadcast turned out to be identical to it except for the commercials.

Of course, but police/lawyer/detective shows should advance the plot realistically, unless they are set in fantasy universes. Save the magic for superhero and sorcery series.

Mine is not as bad as some cases I've read about; there are faces I can learn right away, some after a long time, some never.

OK, I'll say it:

Tahani is classified as bad because of the selfish motivation behind her good deeds. In the morality of this show, the benefit others received didn't mitigate that in the least.
