    Love Bionic woman and Pushing Daises. The Bionic woman has gotten more interesting each week. I don't know how long they can stretch the plot out on Pushing Daises since it is so simplistic. I have given up on Mad tv since they got rid of Ike. I liked him and Bobby lee fighting. They were funny.

    I'm 3 weeks behind on Bionic Woman. It's hard to watch sometimes, I hope they get past the "beginning" part and give her more assignments and action. I don't know about the subplot with Starbuck, that isn't really doing it for me.

    Carpoolers is another one that's hard to watch but that's because I'm not really drawn in at all. It seems very canned.

    Stargate Atlantis (Just not into it anymore)
    Pushing Daisies (First few episodes were interesting, but then I stopped watching)
    Nip/Tuck (Never watched it, gave it a try because of HD and enjoyed the first episode, hated the 2nd and quickly pulled the plug)
    Ghost Whisperer (Got kind of hooked on it last season when I first got HD because it was the best looking show I had seen. Can't get into it this year)
    Everything else is still holding on, but Bionic Woman is close to getting the boot.

    Is it just me or does she always say, "I'm in" when they want her to go on a mission? I know she has said it multiple times. Maybe the problem with this show is the turnover in show runners, but it needs to find itself fast. Ratings have taken a dive since the premier. I'm just getting bored with the episodes all kind of feeling the same and the really bad acting. I keep holding on hoping for some greatness, but if it is off too long with the writers strike, I might just forget about it.

    I wanted K-ville to be as good as I hoped it would,but I remember the first time I watched it. My family and I sat down and we were all excited to watch it and about after 3 minutes into the show we all agreed it was absolutely stupid and I haven't watched it since. The only series I watch are Family Guy,King of the Hill,Seinfeld,24,Kid Nation. Those are my top favorites.

    Different strokes for different folks, I guess. :) I think "Life" is the best new show of the season. I love the Charlie Crews character. Probably my only keeper, if it doesn't get cancelled. I'm still bitter about "Studio 60". :(

    I'm also a fan of 'Til Death. I am waiting for "Back to You" to get better because I like the casting. The writing hasn't been very funny so far though, IMHO. "Reaper" on CW is pretty good as well. Also "Journeyman" and "Chuck" when there's nothing else to watch, but I can live without them. "Samantha Who" is showing some early promise too. /steve

    I've given up on Life, Cane and Women's Murder Club.

    I'm sticking with Chuck, Journeyman, Bionic Women, Big Bang Theory, Moonlight, KVille and Reaper.

    I'm looking forward to New Amsterdam and The Sarah Connor Chronicles on Fox in January..

    We added Women's Murder Club, Private Practice, Samantha Who?, and Back To You this season.

    Private Practice is a keeper in our house.

    Women's murder club is too, we think? We keep watching, and I think after each episode my wife and I look at each other and ask if we like the show, and we both think we do... It's kind of on the fence for us.. Not NEARLY as good as the books, IMHO.... The other thing that makes this one difficult for me is that the ex-husband as liutenant is just there for the tension, and one of the other characters is no longer in the books.... and I like the new character better (trying not to give away too much in case some people haven't read that far in the books and still hope to)....

    Back to YOu and Samantha Who are both still on the list, but only because we've only got 30 shows and so I didn't bother going in and deleting them... Neither of those have really caught us at all... We might watch them at some point and hope they grab ahold of us, but at this point, those two are on our no fly list.

    Season 1 is out on Blu-ray.

    It's still a show I watch the same or next night, but they've done some things that would seem to reduce the possibility of a Season 4.

    Moonlight only made it one episode here.

    Although not new, I killed off Greys Anatamony. The guide debacle on the first two eps set me behind, and just never bothered. Don't miss it much either. :(

    My Name is Earl. I can't begin to express how disappointed I am in recent episodes. Before this season, it was one of my favorite shows on TV, but the creative writing and COPS rehash episodes have just about killed it for me.

    Bionic Woman and Back to you.

    We were very disappointed in both shows after having high hopes.

    As for Prison break, it's one of my favorite shows. Hopefully it will be back on the schedule in January even with the writers strike.

    I've given up on some new shows, and even one show I've watched since it started:

    Bionic Woman (3 episodes)
    Carpoolers (1 episode)
    Caveman (1 episode)
    Prison Break (2 seasons and 2 episodes)

    I'm very close to giving up on Without a Trace - the entire season is waiting for me to, and I don't feel like I've missed anything.

    I gave up Pushing Daisies and Moonlight after 2 episodes each. My wife still watches Moonlight, but that type of show is right up her alley anyway. We also gave up on Without a Trace, Cold Case, and Numb3rs. I guess you can only watch so many crime dramas before you have to purge something.
