The TV MegaSite's Blog Post #76

Hi, everyone! Our site has been doing great. Even though I've been very sick for the past few months, everyone carries's awesome. My special thanks to all my volunteers, particularly Gisele, who does all the daytime stuff and is always willing to do extra stuff.

I hope everyone had a nice holiday!

Don't forget, you can see all the new items that have been added to our site every day on our What's New Page.

We always need more volunteers for our site, so please check out our jobs page if you are interested! We don't turn anyone down! No matter what your skill level, we can find something for you to help out with.

I have not been watching much TV over the holidays. I caught up on "Dexter", my favorite show. Sadly, it is over for the year. Love that show!! It is so excellent. I wish they hadn't killed off the characters they did this year, though.

I am still bummed that they canceled "Eastwick" on ABC and "Dollhouse" on FOX. SIGH.

I checked out some of the soap operas over the holidays. I stopped watching them for a while, for no other reason than I just fell behind and never caught up. I was watching Bold & the Beautiful last night from Thursday, and I was a third of the way through before I realized it was a re-run from 2007. Oopes! I was wondering why Brooke's father was at the jail, and then I saw Phoebe and went, uh-oh, this is not a new episode (she died in 2008)! LOL!! So then I watched Wednesday's episode. It was okay...kind of boring.

I watched a General Hospital episode the other day, too. Some shows never change much. It was interesting, but it has been so long since I cared about any of the characters. They ruined most of them, or never show the ones I like, or killed them off. I see One Life to Live is as good as ever and All My Children is just tedious. Y&R seems fine.

I recorded SNL from last week, a show I never watch, just because James Franco was hosting. I thought he might say something about being on GH - only in the opening monologue, where he kind of made fun of it. He is a jerk from what I've been reading. Way too full of himself and thinks he's too good for soaps. The soaps don't need you, Mr. Franco. And SNL sucks as much as it ever did. Good thing I have a DVR and could fast-forward through most of it. Yuk. It was gross and unfunny.

I spend a lot of time on Twitter and Facebook. There are tons of my favorite TV actors and writers on there, posting about their latest projects as well as their home life and travels. There is also a ton of TV news.

Let's hope the new winter/spring TV season brings some good shows, right? Ones they won't cancel.
