    And largely, the growth of those new networks, and more quality programming is due to the widespread growth of cable. The older networks had to adapt, or lose even more viewership than they have.
    What kind of cheese are you planning to put on top?

        Pretty surreal and hilarious to see Oliver appear on Colbert and think back to their beginnings.

          SHO had a couple great shows (Californication, Brotherhood) but didn't turn out the volume that HBO had.

            Slightly surprised there has been no mention of IFC’s new series “Benders” on here yet! Sneak peek (episode ‘0’) premiered this week, and the series airs on IFC Thursdays at 10. Many short clips as well as that sneak peek episode are available on the IFC Benders site (and of course, YouTube). Good stuff... hope it lasts!

            Cheers!!!

              After last week's absolute stinker of an episode, my wife and I agreed that if Fear the Walking Dead didn't come up with a riveting season finale, we were done with the show. We're now both anxiously awaiting season two. Wow. Great finale.

                Sleepy Hollow came back with Hot Woody Harrelson gone and a new Big Bad. I'm confused -- I thought they were still trapped back in the 18th century. Apparently Witch Wife and Undead Son are gone, too. I must have completely suppressed last season's finale.

                We tried Scream Queens and so far it hasn't been nearly as hideous as advertised, and the humor's perfectly adequate. The show is obviously aimed at girls 15-25, but it's always nice to see Jamie Lee (who is starting to look a lot like Claire Underwood). IINM AHS: Hotel starts next week.

                Survivor has retreads but so far it's been pretty good for the strategizing. Peachy looks the same as always. Amazing Race: Phil is starting to look old. Like, Daniel Craig old.

                The Muppets was brilliant again. I wonder if Jay Leno realizes that the joke of Fozzie's crush on him is that he's lame? Josh Groban, who I had never heard of, was hilarious.

                  I didn't think last week's episode was terrible, but I do agree that the finale was excellent. Sets up the next season very well, with some potentially very intriguing plots to explore.

                    I can't remember if it was here and GPL or just GPL, but I finally caught up on Gotham. The Joker character is really, really well written and brilliantly acted.

                    Just a phenomenal character overall.

                          Don't beat yourself up. It took me until the fuel hose part of episode two to wonder and the laughter is infectious line near the end.

                            He is not the Joker, he is a character that could be the Joker. The creators have basically said they are going to troll multiple possibilities of who the Joker is but probably never really show him since the Joker almost never has an origin. (and is worthless without Batman) The point is to show how a character like the Joker could come about in Gotham.

                            That said "Jerome" is awesome

                              I'm not sure of the legalities of it, but they should have a sane, straight laced kid named "Jack Napier" to really troll people.

                                It is almost a guarantee that will happen, people have been expecting it since the pilot. WB owns all versions of the Joker including the Batman '89 Jack Napier one (they referenced him in comics after the movie) so sooner or later it will happen.

                                Watching Nygma devolve into madness is pretty creepy and awesome!
