    I figured we could use a general TV thread for all the stuff that doesn't really need a thread of its own.

    For instance, today's returning champion on Jeopardy! has won nearly $90k so far. I hope she uses it to buy some bras. Alex's suit is impeccable, as usual.

    lol.

    I started watching The Mindy Project. It wasn't funny in the beginning, really, but lately it's growing on me. One of my magazines said to give it another shot, that she's found her groove, and I've been enjoying the episodes!

    Her book is on my wish list, but I've never read anything from her or watched any of the shows for which she's written. I think if I were to get in to any of them, it would be that one.

    I'm recording the new Sarah Chalke show tonight, How to Live with Your Parents (For the Rest of Your Life). I guess we'll see how that goes.

    I've caught one or two episodes. Maybe we will catch up over the summer.

    I'm obsessing over Boston's Finest, the docu-reality show about the Boston police dept. it's really well done. My best friend and I watch it at our separate apartments and text back and forth as we watch.

    I don't have a DVR, but we (or me, alone, getting judged by my husband) regularly watch:

    The Walking Dead
    American Horror Story
    Games of Thrones
    True Blood
    Girls
    The New Normal
    Modern Family
    Grey's Anatomy

    I have plans to start watching Downton Abbey and Bates Motel. I didn't care for How To Live with your Parents (for the rest of your life), and probably won't be tuning in.

    What I watch online is Dr Who, Grey's Anatomy, and Call the Midwife. I have been watching Downton, but this past season sort of sucked.

    I watch 90% of my television online - I fall asleep too damn early, otherwise.

    Johnny Lee Miller's accent is strangely effeminate, yet so fucking cute. I love Elementary.

    I love Benedict Cumberbatch. He's so dreamy in a weird sort of way. I'm so ready for Sherlock to come back.

    Allegedly the two are good friends!

    Oh god, I could just sit and watch the two of them talk to each other. That's my kind of porn.

    On tonight's Jeopardy, a guy tried to answer a question about the Las Vegas casino Treasure Island with, "What is T.I.?". Is he the Las Vegas version of a DISer or something?

    Has anyone else been following the post-Kitchen Nightmares meltdown for Amy's Baking Company? This was the first establishment that Ramsay refused to make over. Granted, they didn't want the makeover - they likely did the show because they thought they could get a multiple Michelin-starred celebrity chef to declare their restaurant was flaw-free to prove their Yelp haters wrong. But Ramsay walked away because they were batshit crazies who were beyond help (they fired a teenage waitress on camera for daring to ask Amy "are you sure?" about an order).

    Anyway, they took to Facebook to defend their business as only they know how, and it's glorious.

    (Pete made me watch the episode as a learning experience: "This is what you look like when you get wound up." That... can't be.)

    My apologies if this has already been discussed, but has anyone seen this yet? I just stumbled across it when I was supposed to be working.

    I just can't believe that's her in the second pic. It looks nothing like her.

    I saw that too! I had to do a triple-take before I was sure it was her.
