    Not sure about this move.

    Plus the quality of SNL will decline even more in the fall, as NBC will put a 30-minute SNL on Thursday on during primetime of election season.

    Stupid. Stupid. Stupid.

    Unless it's revolved around Andy that is, then it's brilliant.

    SNL has quality?

    So glad to see Life and Chuck are back. Although they've pretty much given Life the Dead Show Walking spot, Fridays at 10.

    A smidge. And what's left will be used on Thursday during primetime, leaving the SNL mothership with the dregs of the dregs.

    And I just noticed the article says next season will be ER's final year.

    Good to see that Scrubs will be moving to ABC.

    Network execs really are lacking in original ideas. "Hey, 'The Office' is great. Let's do another show just like it!" Dolts.
    But, I agree with Arnold, I'm so happy "Chuck" is back, even in the "kiss-of-death-timeslot."

    Knight Rider?
    A sure sign of the end of the world.

    The Office spinoff might be funny, if they base each episode around a different character and follow them around outside the office. Dwight at the farm, Creed going to the soup kitchen on Saturday for lunch.
    It could work.
    But I doubt that's what they have planned. Probably more like Andy and Angela leave to run the office in Altoona.

    The Knight Rider mini-movie that was shown several weeks ago sucked horrendously. Who the fuck thought that was good enough to put on week after week?

    I'm not sold on an Office spinoff. But, I'll at least give it a shot.

    What I, and I would guess everyone else, would like to know is: Will Cavemen be back?

    I gave the Knight Rider movie a shot. I was a fan of the original series. I liked what they did with the car and Val Kilmer's voicework, but the story and the rest of the cast were absolutely horrible.

    Wait, Val Kilmer was the voice of the car?
    That's kind of funny.
