Sunday is the 2nd season premiere of The Loop on FOX at 8:30/7:30c. Bret Harrison has already been cast in the new show Reaper on the CW for next Fall, so we know The Loop won’t last long, but the show is pretty funny, so catch it while you can! The 2nd episode also airs tonight at 9:30/8:30c.

For all the latest TV news and reviews

  • Josh

    I don’t understand those cable companies. Mine has Logo in their Movie Tier and it isn’t a movie channel either.

    I’m excited for Kyle XY and The Loop. Even if it doesn’t last long, The Loop was a pretty funny show and Bret Harrison is just plain hot.

  • John

    I DVRed the the first two episodes of the Mayo Mysteries and started to watch them, but stopped midway through the first episode. I very uninterested in any of the characters or the mystery.

  • Jenny

    Ouch, John! I guess I’m glad to hear it wasn’t as good as I’d hoped! 🙁 🙂

  • allie

    Yay, you included The Starter Wife this week. Thanks for reading last week’s comments! 🙂

    [I was actually a little disappointed with the 3rd episode of TSW. I found the dreams particularly confusing – it was difficult to know what was dream and what wasn’t. Hopefully it picks up again this week.]

    Why no Saturday tv coverage? I’ve been enjoying new episodes of HEX on BBC America and it airs Saturday nights @ 9.
