I couldn’t believe how bad :TBL was! Still not loving Glee as much as these die-hard fans–it’s entertaining–just not amazing.

The Vampire Diaries is another horrible one–gave it a second shot last night, but I think that’s it–may not even wait for the third strike.

However, I was pleasantly surprised and pleased with last night’s sneak peek of Avatar–reminded me of The Venture Bros. Will be adding that to my schedule in January.

Yes I agree on the Glee comment. I want to like it more than I actually do. Jane Lynch is inspired and the show is decent, just not great.

Kyle, Could TBL have put anymore overused storylines into one episode, cause it was pretty bad and terribly predictable.

As for The Vampire Diaries, I don’t think it’s “horrible.” But, it’s not great either.

As for Glee, I’m not loving it like so many seem to be. It is good and at times close to great, but the musical numbers lose it for me, they just seem so fake. If really bad lip-syncing is what they are going for, then they’re doing a fine job.

sprspndx, Jane Lynch’s Sue is the only consistent reason to watch. They sure give her some great lines and she pretty much knocks them out of the park every time.
