Why is “The Clone Wars” just in “other option”? IMHO, it’s one of the five best shows on TV, and the ratings are amazing for Cartoon Network. I think you should start putting this into your prime picks! Just a suggestion!

Marc, The reason The Clone Wars is in the other options is because I think it is worth watching, but would rather watch Stargate Atlantis on cable. The reason it isn’t in the Prime Picks, is because those are the best bets, IMHO, for each hour of primetime on network TV. The Cable Choices section could be thought of as the same, but for cable outlets. Lastly, this comments section is for others, like yourself, to come along and let us know what they think are the bets of the night. Thanks for taking the time to leave a comment.
