    I see my good friends at CW are still last and falling. I hear CBS is really responsible for their programming. Next year sounds even worse, and those adds for Gossip Girl are turning off parents of those girls who watch the show. Maybe its not too late to bring back star trek …

    Not a single program above a 10.0 rating! If my memory is correct, when “The Cosby Show” was #1 in the ratings in the 1980s, it usually was in the 20’s and maybe even the 30’s.

    When will The Unit air again. We loved JAG and that went off the air, but The Unit just got started and we really enjoyed that. Where is it?

    Sue, any word on the CBS fall line up, as to the status of The Unit?

    Any more insight as to NCIS losing a main cast member?
