The other show I’m super excited about tonight is BIG BROTHER.  Fingers are still crossed that Ronnie is going home, but more important tonight we find out who won the very power coup d’etat.  Please please please don’t spoil me 🙂

And over on USA it’s the mid-season finales for both BURN NOTICE and ROYAL PAINS, so you don’t want to miss either of those.

    I loooooved the first seasons of Skins as well, but I was disappointed to read that this new season is a totally new cast and hasn’t gotten very good reviews. I’m not sure I’ll watch tonight but will be looking forward to hearing some viewer responses.
