There's a place for people who laugh at nothing...

By the way, I'm very happy to say that Out of Practice, which I really liked, is coming back to CBS in a couple of weeks, on Wednesday nights, followed by Courting Alex, which displaced it. Throw in Criminal Minds and CSI: NY and you've got a pretty good night of TV there.

The Unit looks good. Too bad it's on opposite House. Guess I'll have to tape The Unit.

I don't believe I've ever seen any of those shows. I watch too much tv anyhow.

Out of Practice was on after Two and a Half Men and before CSI: Miami, so I just started watching it and thought it was really funny. It was replaced at midseason by Courting Alex, with Jenna Elfman. Now, the both of them are going to be on Wednesday, before Criminal Minds (with Mandy Patinkin, Shemar Moore, and Thomas Gibson, who played Greg on Dharma and Greg).

What do you watch, if you don't mind my asking?

It was on Mondays at 9:30 until January when it was displaced by Courting Alex, with Jenna Elfman. It was the story of two recently-divorced doctors, Stewart (Henry Winkler) and Lydia (Stockard Channing) Barnes, and their three kids, all of whom are also doctors: Oliver (Ty Burrell), who's a plastic surgeon (and a real womanizer); Regina (Paula Marshall), who works in the ER (and is also a lesbian, which makes for some interesting plot twists); and Ben (Christopher Gorham), who's a psychologist and thus not a "real doctor" (he's the baby of the family). Stewart is now dating his secretary, Crystal (played by Jennifer Tilly). The characters are all broadly played, and thus very funny as they interact with one another. It took me a while to get to like it, then, when they took it off, I was furious. In my opinion, it's a clever and somewhat sophisticated comedy that plays up to its audience. You'd probably like it.
