    Question: Would it kill CBS to take a highly-regarded but struggling series like Life Unexpected…and give it some exposure on the CBS network? Wouldn’t it benefit the entire company as a whole, and perhaps help raise awareness of The CW as a viewing option?

    In the TV biz, we’re constantly prodded to cross-promote if we have sister stations in the same market….and yet, CBS does zilch to help its young network. Who’s running the board meetings over there? We’re talking Marketing 101.

    Netflix being able to get current shows would be great. Might make up for the Blockbuster exclusivity thing that has popped up here recently (i.e., Blockbuster is the only outlet to be able to rent some movies for a period of time–which really should be illegal under US antitrust laws…).

    While I usually agree with all your television viewing selection, I have to disagree in that Mike & Molly is genuinely sweet and funny, plus its female lead is amazing. I also highly enjoy In Treatment, which you don’t watch. Besides that, no fuss to be mentioned :)
