    Loved last night’s episode of Man with a Plan. Superior Donuts was pretty good and I actually made it all the way through 9JKL.

    • Matt LeBlanc was great last night. I am really enjoying Man With a Plan this season.

  • renamoretti1

    NBC hiding its pitiful state behind ever more hours of The Voice to diminishing returns.

    Good Doctor continues to ebb slowly.

    CBS still needing to re-run BBT endlessly to make up for not finding new hits…

    Other than that Golden Age of TV, right? 😉
