Wow, with only 12 hours of FOX a week–and most of it not being watched by the 3 of you, you guys flew through that lineup! I think the only FOX show I don’t watch is The X Factor! For The Mob Doctor, my reaction was exactly the same as Jason’s–I really enjoyed the hospital drama side of the show–if they dropped the mob stuff, it could be a great show. Ben & Kate and Mindy Project weren’t quite as good as I had hoped, but show promise, and I will give them some time. After all, I’m still watching New Girl, which I might have dropped if it hadn’t been sandwiched in-between Raising Hope and Glee last season. Out of the FOX line-up, I’m most excited for the return of Fringe.
Yay, Amrie’s back next week–that means we get to talk reality TV 🙂
