    can they just stop making new shows and show reruns from the 70s, 80s and 90s?

      Your name fits. Pay your cable bill and you can get lots of old stuff on lots of old cable networks!

        actually, i believe YOU are the fool. i think “Baldheaded Fool” is correct in that the quality of new shows leaves a lot to be desired. BTW, anyone commenting on these boards has a right to his/her opinion without hearing from some judgmental, anal, not gettin any, jerk like yourself!

    NBC’s The Event – if 24 and Lost had a child, and drank heavily throughout the pregnancy, it would be The Event.
