Have to make room for more "reality" (?) tv, you know. It's just SO exciting, watch those people stranded out in the boonies, with no one around. EXCEPT THE TV PRODUCTION CREW! Reality my ..................

Finally, something you and I can agree on, Mark. Carla Gugino is a world-class hottie! :P

I have actually recorded every week of this but haven't watched any of them yet (I set too many timers this year). Does this mean I should kill the timer now, or will they air any more in the timeslot?

You didn't say which PVR your have, Bob, but leave the timer if it is name-based. You will pick up any stray KS episodes. If it is time-based, delete it.

"Kill those timers E* users. The Bachelor will be on in that slot this week."


"The mass of men lead lives of quiet desperation" as they sadly turn to depressing and worthless reality TV programs like "The Barfelor" to dream their impossible dreams.

Such hopeless losers would be better off climbing up into a barn loft with cardboard wings attached to their atrophied arms and jumping out in a futile attempt to realize their unfulfilled dreams of flying.

Not to mention if they did it high enough, they could help clean out the shallow end of the gene pool for future generatons.

The article says ABC will give the critically acclaimed crime drama a second chance in the spring. ABC is buying billboard space across the country to advertise this show.

Thanks for the heads up, Bob. I'll catch her in in the flick just as soon as "The One" goes on sale for $5.88 at wallyworld, or comes on AEP - which ever comes first! :grin:
