  1. I actually watched the block…well 2nd screen….the lady judge…Oh the kitchen needs 2 dish washers…What?….then most of 60 Minutes (both because I was too lazy to change the channel) and then Vera…

  2. I’m guessing Sports Tonight won’t be back next year. I’m sure its not an expensive show to make because it’s probably rehashed footage of the sports segment shown during the week and that day on the 5 PM news but those ratings are just too low.
