    Obviously, we all want Mischa back on set asap. Her iconic presence totally “makes” The Beautiful Life. This little off-screen bump in the road so parallels her character on the show.

    Parenthood: It’s all the little things you’ve already seen on Brothers & Sisters that matters.

    Flash Forward: to an all new Grey’s Anatomy.

    Community: Because you don’t get enough loveable losers on NBC.

    Melrose Place: It’s like the new 90210, only without Shenae Grimes.

    The Forgotten: For everyone who forgets to change the channel to Jay Leno.

    Eastwick: Forget about Sex and the City. These witches are actual witches.

    Vampire Diaries: From the people who canceled Angel.

    or Vampire Diaries: It’s like True Blood, only without the graphic sex, violence, or anything that makes that show awesome.

    or Vampire Diaries: The next obsession of every tween girl and the occasional sexually repressed gay guy.

    or Vampire Diaries: Forget about the lousy script, just look at the pretty actors. (this one could work for most CW shows).
