  1. I wonder how many FF episodes are left. I’ve been watching it on my DVR and enjoying it with my partner, some fun light entertainment.

    I’m sure MC kids starts soon, presuming that’s Sun, Mon and Tue then Bacholorette Wed and Thurs. Does anyone know the dates all 10 ads say coming soon?

  2. HYBPA has cemented itself l think l would try it at a 7.30pm start time. 10 has nothing to loose. The language may be an issue for the timeslot but thats easily (bleeeeeep) rectified.

  3. Family Feud is absolutely destroying HYBPA lead-in. What a disappointment for it’s 200th episode. I got stuck watching the last 5 minutes of FF due to it running overtime – it is clear why it’s lacking viewers.
