    Tonight is supposed to feature modern Bloody Face very heavily. Very excited even though it was spoiled on Twitter by the actor weeks ago.

    Bad Night?

    by K

    You gotta be kidding me...Wednesday is the best night of the week I think...but to each his own, obviously-- American Horror Story Arrow Survivor Criminal Minds is still entertaining from time to time Top Chef Isn't it's always sunny on wednesdays? That may be thursdays actually...but either way, my dvr gets filled on wednesdays....what do you think the best day of tv is?

    Sandy Relief...what a load

    by K

    What is the point of airing it on 100 different channels? Just to ensure that NONE of the channels get a decent amount of viewers? Despite the fact that all of like 2 people died from Sandy...and the damages should by and large be covered by insurance..No insurance? You get a learning experience. I'd like to know which victims are receiving a check from tonight's charity concert..or is the red cross pocketing 90% and sending the rest of the dough to the insurance companies? What a load.

  • Dec. 12, 2012, 5:10 p.m. CST

    everyzig thanks for the asshole opinion

    by Matthew

    lots of people need help regardless of what you think. I would hope everyone is doing the relief show for free. Insurance companies are assholes who don't want to pay anyway, insurance never wants to pay or they take forever to pay out, Hell the insurance companies probably need help, they normally don't have to pay out to everyone

    AHS

    by theGoldbergV

    Has gone from enjoyable guilty pleasure to appointment TV this season. The cast are fantastic and the fact they are pretty much doing every major horror trope (and aliens) shouldn't work at all and yet somehow it does.

    Arrow continues to be interesting

    by Beebop

    It's not entirely coming together yet, but there's a lot of promise. Deathstroke looks outstanding, and this element with Papa Merlyn being a badass of Oliverian proporitions is interesting.

  • Dec. 12, 2012, 9:16 p.m. CST

    How can Deathstroke on "Arrow" a tv show look better than Bane of DKR?

    by 2mules4sistersarah

    Not to mention Arrow having a better outfit (Which is essentially a green hoodie) look than the stiff black armor Bats wears in the movies? Yeah the show steals the theme music of the Dark Knight movies(Not a bad thing) and other Nolan elements but know what? It fits the show perfectly. Batman might have had his back broken in DKR but Arrows lumps in tonights show are almost as nasty.Plus the fight scenes again trump DKRs. "Arrow" is the Batman show we've always wanted to see on tv

  • Dec. 12, 2012, 9:55 p.m. CST

    Excellent episode of ARROW tonight....

    by Jobacca

    This show continues to be the best thing the CW had done...ever. Hope if they ever do get around to using Ollie in a JLA movie,they cast Stephen Amell to play him there as well.

    DING DONG! THE WITCH IS DEAD!

    by tailhook

    And finally.. Abi exits the game! So really... you have Skupin and Lisa basically guaranteed final 3 now. If Denise wins Immunity, Malcolm goes home or Denise is the stupidest Survivor ever. If Malcolm wins Immunity, Denise goes home. If Skupin or Lisa wins Immunity, Malcolm goes home. At the final 3 immunity challenge it'll be Skupin/Lisa vs Malcolm or Denise. If Skupin/Lisa wins, thats your final 2. If Malcolm or Denise wins, they probably go with Lisa to the final 2 as Skupin is a returning player. But really.. all Malcolm has to do to win the game is win the next 2 immunities. He does that, he sweeps the vote no doubt. If he gets eliminated, and Lisa can navigate that FTC and not have her baggage weigh her down, she walks with the win. Especially if Skupin is next to her. That stroking of the Tandang ego and standing up for them goes a long way at a final vote.

    MTV is so pathetic.

    by Chest_Rockwell

    Remember when "Live aid" and "Farm aid" and stuff were the big benefits of the day? They were truly global happenings. HEll, didn't phil collins play BOTH wembly and in philly in the same day at the Live Aid gigs? Now, you have a benefit with the stones, the who, clapton, billy joel, sir paul, grohl, the dude from coldplay, alica keyes, kanye, the boss and bon jovi, and mtv doesn't even carry it? That channel sucks more dick than a 5 dollar whore.

  • Dec. 13, 2012, 12:35 p.m. CST

    The bow and arrow is the least appealing thing of the show.

    by tailhook

    And anybody who would discard the show on that alone a) doesn't know what they are missing and b) isn't really a fan of superhero shows so isn't much of a loss to begin with. Week in and week out this show just keeps delivering quality writing without dissolving into the typical CW romantic mush with pretty people type show they're known for.

  • Dec. 13, 2012, 2:24 p.m. CST

    MTV is pretty pathetic

    by Roane Gaddy

    Music Television is almost as bad as a channel that is responsible for killing brain cells calling itself "The Learning Channel." At least Court TV had the decency to change its name when it decided to totally sleaze out.
