    Kath – Hopkins is on ABC. I couldn’t figure out how CBS was going to air two shows simultaneously.

    It kind of bugs me that My Boys is on during the 2nd half of the SYTYCD results show, I have to flip back and forth. Won’t someone get me a TiVo as a baby shower gift? All new mothers need a TiVo right?

    Speaking of My Boys, do you have any pictures/info from the watch party last week? I was so jealous that I’m not in the Boston area!
