Buzz Feed's sports editor has launched a twitter account that tweets plot lines for Seinfeld episodes if the show was still on the air.  Some really really great stuff.

Reading some article, I realized something. I'm watching just about zero network TV this year, which astounds me when I think how much I did a decade ago. Literally two tuners at the same time wasn't enough. Now? Retreading Sherlock Homes, Vegas, NCIS got awful, retreading Mork and Mindy show that should die, incredibly stupid comedies...

Primetime TV is a cesspool of either crime procedurals or godawful comedies. Now I'm a horror fan. I admit. But what I realized is that none of these 'out there' supernatural/horror on cable has failed lately, just the opposite. True Blood, Walking Dead, American Horror Story, GoTs, etc. The most celebrated shows out there. What are the odds, assuming they can adjust for broadcast TV contentwise at least, these networks quit with Animal Practice, or a million 'crime of the week' trash and get a clue?

It kills me Fringe is one of the greatest things in history this season and it's already done filming for good. Homeland, Breaking Bad, Mad Men... non-paranormal dramas, but not 'crime of the week.' that have had wild success, and yet the big 4 networks keep shoveling the same trash year after year. God, if one more hour gets taken up with a singing show... How much karoake can people watch a week?

It'd be nice to have more than 5 or 6 shows to watch a week. I could understand if a million horror shows failed for every AHS... But right now anything that isn't a comedy or crime show is heralded as the greatest thing ever and gets exceptional ratings. The broadcast networks have to notice eventually, right?

"1600 Penn" looks like another stupid show that tries too hard.

I loved season 1 (one of the best seasons of any show ever), it should have ended there

Season 2 was a crap show but you'd be a donk not to say season 5 was great.

"Jeremy Clarkson Fail"

After watching that, and some of Bourdain's shows where he visited Vietnam, Cambodia, and Laos, I'm dying to get over there.

I thought FNL really went down the tubes. Too many missing characters, dumb plot holes from season to season.

Season 1 was great. Wish I had stopped there.

Season 5 was really good, up there with Season 1.  Season 2 was a complete embarrassment.

Show that went down the drain the quickest?  "Numb3rs" - great pilot and then total shiite.

Season 2 was poor because of the writers strike. They had no freaking clue what to do at all.

Damn I want to watch FNL again. I've seen S1 almost four times through (and the rest only once) and it's still amazing. I really need to see Season 5 again though. I was just amazed at how much it succeeded my expectations.

Imo

1 > 5 > 3 > 4 >>>>>>>>........>>>>>>>>> 2

4 was very good though.

I couldn't take the JD McCoy character seriously once I realized he was Peter Pan.

I couldn't really take him seriously at all. Mainly because he rivaled Saracen... but honestly. What a punk.

Damn straight.  Go there before you go anywhere else.  Laos and Vietnam made me like people again.

Absolutely. I don't know how that show stayed on the air for so long.
