  1. I really enjoyed Me, Myself and I. It was really well done and dare I say, cute? It deserves a better lead in than Kevin Can Wait.

    • For some dumb reason, CBS insists on mixing its multi camera and single camera comedies. With three of them now, it’s rather odd that they feel the need to continue this mix and match game.

      • Hi Mushu 🙂

        I’m not sure audiences care about that. NBC’s long-defunct Must-See-Thursday went from sitcoms to the blood and angst-filled ER…

  2. You do not know good shows Kevin can wait got renewed the brave and the seal team are good shows

  3. I wouldn’t single CBS. The other networks are just as awful in their choices… 🙁

    Also, The Good Doctor is not a hit (yet or at all just now).
