Hello World!

I give up. Gilmore Girls has now moved to Saturday nights (aka the timeslot of certain death) and Enterprise has vanished from the schedule.

But The West Wing is definitely showing this Tuesday night. Fingers crossed.

    Voyager's first February sweeps episode didn't fare too well in the overnights. 'Memorial' scored a 4.3 rating, 6 share, less than the previous two episodes. Overall, the series tied for fourth place overall.

  • Mania J.G. Hertzler Interview
    J.G. Hertzler, better known as Chancellor Martok, talked about his plans for a new book series. "They follow the adventures of Martok and Worf and several of the cast members of DS9," he said, "along with some new people, after the demise of the series, as they leave the station and return to Q'onos where all hell breaks loose - which is not an uncommon event on Q'onos." The novels are currently scheduled for release next year.
