    How can 14 new series subtract BSG & ALPHAS = 14 reality shows?

    They can’t… I’m just really bad with numbers (hence the whole TV Addiction thing!) Thanks for the heads up!

    I’m okay with the reality shows as king as they are as good as FaceOff! That show was fascinating. But 10 is too many.

    I need new Mad Men sooner rather than later!

    Sheesh. SyFy really sucks now.

    I hope Space in Canada does a little better, and doesn’t inflict all those reality shows on us.

    Sniff, I want my Stargate Universe! The back half of this season has been great so far.

    Honestly, MAD ABOUT YOU was so long ago I don’t remember. Ask me again after his new show premieres!
