Did anyone watch that last week? I'm not getting why the critics are drooling all over this show. It wasn't very good. It seemed way overdone and overdramatic and came off just plain hokey.

Terrible show, absolutely terrible.

In fact, it's my pick to be the first show cancelled this fall.

Given the good reviews the critics gave it, I bet they try to drag it out. That and being aired after Lost will help its ratings.

But yeah, it was pretty crappy.

Too late; Kidnapped, perhaps my favorite new show this fall besides Studio 60, has already been cancelled. Well, not exactly; they're going to move the show to Saturday nights (worst time slot ever) and let the story play out over 13 episodes rather than 22, since that was the minimum on the contract.

I guess "The Biggest Loser" is way more exciting. :-[

Ugh, I'm severely disappointed. Kidnapped was great.

I watched Smith too, and although it wasn't very good... in fact it was also pretty boring, it's still better than any idiotic reality show.

Meanwhile, Jericho keeps on truckin.' Jericho is soooo dumb... the acting is horrible, the characters are idiots, the plot is full of holes and ridiculous twists.... but I'm hooked just because I want to know what's going to happen!

I guess it's on tonight, but screw that, Mets/Cards!
