I can’t believe NBC moved American Dreams to Wednesdays at 8pm (extra special thanks to Barry for letting me know about it). WEDNESDAYS! The day when I watch 4 (FOUR!) shows — Lost, Alias, Smallville, American Idol. Sometimes I’ll even watch Jack and Bobby on Wednesdays but luckily the WB reruns the show on Sundays (phew!). I guess I’m going to have to set both the Tivo and the VCR if I’m going to keep up with my Wednesday shows. ANYWAY. Is NBC trying to KILL the show?! It’s barely getting any viewers on Sundays when it’s against Extreme Makeover: Home Edition, how do they expect it to perform any better when it’s against Lost and American Idol?! I’m so upset. It’s such an amazing show and it seems like it may not get another season. I’m crossing my fingers for more Sam/Meg scenes!
And now for a meme stolen from Amanda…
