    And the point of a show like The Hills on Saturday, 12.30pm is…

    Would have thought more suited to 7pm slot as there would be enough eps for weeks.Surpsied that networks do not try different shows at 7pm each week night to test waters – especially over summer

    So still no Pushing Daisies or Chuck…Dogs!
