  4. Last nights Survivor was no shocker despite the editing…I will say Michelle’s betrayal of Julia was touching and finally put her on the map with me.

    Michelle: Finally you are a player…she IMO is in the perfect position to be in final 3, her skill at the last challenge was fantastic, could she be a undercover brain after all?

    Julia: Played a good game and just got caught, there was little she could do about it

    Jason: He is so unliked thanks to his previous actions that his days IMO are numbered

    Cydney: Should make top 3 but will not win, to much attitude. Her words at tribal rattled Tia which means to me that their relationship isn’t all that tight

    Joe: Perfect to take to final 3, he is not a physical threat (as seen last night when he gave up early) and doesn’t seem to be very strategic less his ability to stick with Aubry

    Tai: Is in a good position but I don’t think he will make the final 3, he is to well liked. Fortunately for him he has the numbers and the Idol and the advantage. Aubry and the gang will have to make a move on him soon or their window of opportunity may be gone.

    Aubry: She is my bet to win this, she has weathered the many storms well and made great moves to save herself. Cydney and Michelle need to look at her like they look at Tia….after Jason it must be one or the other.

    LOVE THIS SHOW, and as always I am spoiler free….the only way to watch IMO “:)

  5. I have to wonder where Fox will put Rosewood. It would be good for them to shift Empire to the 8PM hour to lead in to something more than the local news. Rosewood had Heartbeat numbers without Empire.

    • It’s ridiculous that anyone at FOX would even think of keeping Rosewood.

      When TV was adequately managed it would have been gone after 4 episodes to make way for something more promising.

      These days, you fail and get rewarded with a back-order and a second season…

  6. Hate to say it but there’s very little “respectable” here ratings-wise.

    Empire is still on the good side of “solid” but that’s about it. The rest is just really bad.

    On Criminal Minds: The Sequel, what is sad to see is that the creator of the original can’t get a deal to make another one, but CBS keeps trying to do sequels… And they’re the one who are doing better than everybody else!! (at least they’re trying to clone success not failure like ABC!)

    Oh boy, is keeping Nashville around paying off in droves for the aforementioned ABC…
