    So excited for another season of Rizolli & Isles.

    • gemapet

      Agree – and Memphis Beat!

  • Bosco

    More excited for The Closer!

  • KCB

    Rizzoli and Isles…and Covert Affairs = Fun, light summer shows!

  • Eli

    “Angie Harmon fans”?!

    Um, the only reason to watch Rizzoli & Isles is for Sasha Alexander, thank you.

    • Cheery

      You beat me to it–sorta. I was going to ask why doesn’t the intro say: “Angie Harmon AND Sasha Alexander fans rejoice”?
      I actually only started watching the show because Sasha was “Kate” on NCIS. I’d wager I’m not alone in that.

      • jules

        nope. my reason for watching as well.

      • Meg

        Gretchen on Dawson’s Creek.

      • Cam

        Yeah, the Angie Harmon fans line didn’t sit too well me either. I like Angie Harmon, but Sasha Alexander is my main reason for watching Rizzoli & Isles. I miss Kate on NCIS. lol.

      • tryst

        Wow, Meg! Totally forgot she played Gretchen on Dawson’s. Good one

  • RvE

    Totally excited about the return of “Rizzoli & Isles”, but it’s not JUST Angie Harmon’s show.
    Sasha Alexander/Dr. Isles is every bit as important!

  • Lorie

    I can’t wait for The Closer! I only wish it returned in June.

  • angelwhiteraven

    What about Sasha Alexander???? I loved her playing Kate on NCIS! Don’t get me wrong I like Angie Harmon too but the show would be nothing without BOTH of them.

  • Justin

    So happy for the return of Rizzoli and Isles (for both Angie and Sasha), The Closer, and Leverage.

  • Michael

    So do you think Sasha will stay past season 2

  • Sheila G

    I hope they bring back Donnie Walberg!

  • Sandra

    Love every one of these shows. It took me a minute to warm up to Men, but now I love it.

  • Jeff from Jersey; yes New Jersey

    I*m surprised that R&I is coming back. No offense to Ms Alexander and Ms. Harmon. Falling Skies should be good, though.

  • Brenda

    Like both shows but The Closer is my favorite!!

  • Joan Nicholson

    I like the show, but the plots are a bit silly and Ms. Alexander can’t seem to act???? Scriptwriter needs to tighten things up a bit.

  • Kate

    I hate the way cable schedules shows. The network shows will be in reruns in May, so why not start the cable shows earlier and have them run longer? I always miss the first show or two of The Closer because I forget about it. They keep them off too long.
