'Heroes: Hiro goes back in time to learn more about Arthur and Angela Petrelli.' Oh my GOSH, please Heroes don't go back in time or the future, just stick with the here and now... I'm really trying hard to stay a faithful viewer...

Don't worry there is a good chance the show will be canceled very soon. NBC just fired two producers, doesn't like the way the show is going, doesn't like the ratings, and the show cost big bucks.

although ratings suck, writing sucks, acting sucks, they wont cancel this show OREO!
you know why? cause its an international hit, not just a US hit. shows like 'my name is earl' dont sell overseas, heroes is a huge hit overseas, so there is plenty of money coming in, even if the us numbers are down.

What are you talking about? That list is pretty comprehensive. It includes nearly all of the biggest shows on TV right now.

If you're looking for scoop on some obsure show on Sci-Fi or Oxygen that you plus 2 other people watch, then you're out of luck

Hm...non-obscure network shows that aren't on the list. How about:

The Office
Chuck
Big Bang Theory
My Name Is Earl
30 Rock
Terminator: Sarah Connor Chronicles
Knight Rider

Hopefully they'll show up in a future column.

Yea, I don't think there is much left on television that wasn't mentioned above. Supernatural, sons of anarchy.

Actually, I was being serious. Aside from House and The Simpsons, I've never seen any of those shows.

What's on my DVR? Mad Men, The Shield, 30 Rock, The Office, SVU, Chuck, Numb3rs ...
