Whitney was just ok. Might watch it again, but if I missed it, I wouldn't miss it. Some witty lines and a few laughs, but she and her BF had some very awkward/improv-style weak moments. Not great chemistry there.

And don't get me wrong, I like Ted Danson, just not in the way they made his new character.

Way too early to call-out his character. The show writers have been pretty good in the past. So I'll wait to see where they take him.

Whitney is very easy on the eyes but I don't see it making it. Not funny at all.

Revenge was much better than expected!!!

Damn, missed Revenge, it did look awfully good in the trailers. Do they repeat pilots on TV? I could watch on PC but I'd rather big screen it.

It is on again tonight at 9 (depending on your time zone).

Whitney has to be the worst show in years to actually make it to air. Unbelievable how bad it is. Given that it's on NBC, it might make a full season. On any other network, I'd expect it to last less than 5 episodes. Just plain horrible.

I get a kick out of how much people can hate a show. :lol: I'm really into TV & if I don't like a show, then it's no biggie - I just don't watch it. I never hated a show like some here have expressed. One mans trash....
If you stop responding to them or put them on ignore, then eventually they'll go away.

Right on. Some of those people will watch a show they "hate" many times just to be sure.....

We have been asked to tone down our expressions of derisions on other's druthers. And in that vein I've refrained from replying "STFU" to more than one guy or gal. It'd be in vain, anyway, not to mention in poor taste and not within the t.o.s. of DBS.
"Laxguy" means a guy who loves lacrosse.

Just added second DVR so it makes adding some new series on broadcast channels easier to schedule .I put the new box in living room and moved HR20-700 into our sun room where at night it can continue all recordings set and free up the main set for MLB playoffs and some other live sport events to watch live in living room .Don,t for get Dexter is coming on again plus a new show Homeland which, looks good from the previews both on Showtime.

Thanks David Ortiz, got it scheduled! And knock one out of Yankee Stadium for me tomorrow please! Go Sox!!!

Update: Watched it, pretty good, but why was the GIRL in prison for 10 years if her dad was the framed guy? She didn't do anything, she was just a kid at the time. Makes no sense.

I'm just glad they spent time here updating the city shots. No more Riverfront in the Skyline. Looking forward to their version of a particular bar and restaurant downtown.

At least in Boardwalk Empire, while there may be lots of bloodsuckers, not everyone is "magic".

I did and it was close...but, in my opinion, not as bad as Whitney. I gave the Paul Reiser show a second episode to see if it was just the pilot...nope. After that, I moved on.

Hey, if you like it, then by all means watch it. If you were referring to Whitney though, based on the response I saw on twitter during the show and the reviews I've seen, I wouldn't count on it being there long term.

Right on. Some of those people will watch a show they "hate" many times just to be sure.....

Feel free to saw what you want. Not going to hurt my feelings. We're just talking about a TV show anyway. You're right about one thing. I *may* (haven't decided yet) watch Whitney next week just to see if any changes were made after the pilot. If not...and they'd have to be major changes to sway me... I'll move on with my life. Like I said...just a TV show.

Finally watched it last night. He was funnier than she was. Not sure if it was the writing or if his delivery was better. I'll keep it around for now.

Pan Am is very very good. Pleasant surprise. Up All Night is going great too. Didn't yet check out Terra Nova.
