Cry me tears

A short post today to quickly talk about the ratings.
They’re in, and people are actually watching TV!
Well, to be fair, people are watching the new shows on the air, but that’s a revolution on to itself.
For NCIS: LA, FlashForward, even the Vampire Diaries and the Good Wife, the scores are good.
For some though, the ratings are, uhm, bad.
When you get worse ratings than My Own Worst Enemy, like Trauma did last night, it’s time to call it quits. Yes, even with your astronomical special effects (which are not that impressive quite frankly).

In sad news territory, the first images of The Beaver have surfaced.
And it looks as pathetic as one might expect with Mel Gibson in the lead.


A shame given how great the script was…
