He was a great guy back then, however he’s not now. Now he’s mean, conceded, cheap and moody. … We shouldn’t be surprised that American Idol is coming back, in just the last few seasons, Prison Break, Dancing With The Stars, Twin Peaks, The Bachelor, Bachelorette, Roseanne, To Tell The Truth, Arrested Development, Match Game, 100,000 Dollar Pyramid, Full House, and The Gong Show have been rebooted. … By the way, Blacklist is a great show, renewed yet, Blacklist redemption, the spin, canceled, it stunk. And the same thing, Criminal Minds renewed, but their spin Criminal Minds Beyond Borders got the ax, again, it stunk.
Not surprised: Great Indoors and Mr. Ken both unwatchable and canceled.
