Most Deserving of a Renewal: Despite early second season pickups for reality skeins OH SIT! and BREAKING POINTE, we here are are still waiting to here from The CW about the best thing to come out of Canada since ARROW star Stephen Amell’s abs. That being… a third season of THE L.A. COMPLEX.

    Thanks for the props for The Middle. The hour long show was a bit too much, but the ending with the scrapbook brought a tear to my eye.

    Grey’s shocker. That was totally why they did it. I spent the entire episode thinking, ‘we know Arizona’s not dead… so what already????”
