When I read that How to Get Away With Murder on ABC had the highest Live +3 increase of any show EVER I thought about it a few different ways. Sure it's great that an additional 6 million people watched the show. Great for ABC I guess because that means that a total of 20.3 million people watched the show.  Of course who knows how many of them will come back to watch it again, but 20.3 million checked it out. As an advertiser though, I'm betting most of those folks didn't see my spot. They skipped it.  30% is a big number. I'm not going to freak out about it…yet. 
Below Deck
The new deck hand finally showed up and everyone was very happy to see him. The guys AND the girls. I guess when you're confined to small spaces anything or anyONE new is exciting. I got a gay vibe from Logan. I didn't think he was in to girls. If he is gay, he's not letting anyone know about it just yet. Last nights charter was only one night. 6 Irish rugby players, who appreciated Kate's love of theme nights and props. She bagged the pirate thing and the scavenger hunt for Mexican sombreros, mustaches and maracas. She seems to find joy in party props. Hey, whatever floats her boat right?  Little mishap pulling out of the dock, ripped out a piling or something. No worries, wasn't a crew member messing with the gear. Captain Lee to the rescue. That must be what he does when everyone else is partying. He's a super hero. Saving other captains from peril around the Caribbean. Reel it back in Kristy...Kelley was so psyched to be spending his birthday with his sister that he drank too much and puked all over the place. Must suck to be sick on a boat with all that rocking. Have you noticed that Kelley has no southern drawl at all and his sister Amy has the strongest one ever? I know they haven't been together in years but it's bugging me. Maybe because her accent is SO annoying! 

Little People Big World 
I've watched and been to a lot of weddings but I don't remember the last time one that was more romantic and moving and beautiful as Jeremy and Audrey's. Of course when you have a beautiful farm that means so much to the bride, the groom and to all of us who have watched it all grow over the years, it adds to the event. I loved the old antique feel, the gorgeous flowers, the quilts on the benches, the kids ringing the church bells, Audrey's dress, Jeremy's suspenders and the words each person carried down the aisle. The tears started flowing when Audrey read Jeremy's wedding day letter to her bridesmaids, and continued through their amazing vows and into the credits. I think even Amy and Matt felt the love too. They actually kissed each other and held hands!  Zach's next, but I can't imagine any wedding more amazing than his brothers.

Sons of Anarchy
O…M…F…G last nights episode was CRAZEEEE!!!! I don't even know where to begin. The craziest moment? There were too many to count. Lets see…Courtney Love as a school teacher, Gemma threatening a Mom at drop off, Juice losing his mind, Tigs getting shot and making out with Venus, Chiggs holding hands with Sheriff Jarry, Jax taking his pearly white kicks off to rescue the preachers wife in the water, but leaving them on to dig up the preacher in the woods, the Chinese blowing up Scoops with Sheriff Jarry in there,  killing Andre the Giant and leaving him in a gun box, Marilyn Manson's guys shooting the 2 cops, or everyone including Jax's other love interest, getting blown away at Diosa by the Chinese. I guess Tigs making out with Venus was the craziest moment, right?  There was a tiny bit of comedy though. Gemma had 2 great lines: Her threat to the Mom at drop off was awesome, "if you beep at me again, Mom, I'm going to shove that cup so far up your ass you're going to be shittin mochachino for a month." Followed by her first meeting with Sheriff Althea.  "Althea…guess your folks were hoping for a black baby" Classic lines, classic episode. 

SOA Trivia question: What is Tigs real name? 


-NBCU's entire mantra is TOGETHER. So if I have it right, Susan Kolb, the President of E! is out. No new job that I'm aware of.  I haven't heard that she wants to direct or anything, so for now it's just home to catch up on Orange is the New Black and Parenthood. Adam Stotsky, the President of the Esquire network is keeping his job and keeping the E's together. Adam's now got E! and Esquire on his plate. More togetherness for Frances Berwick, she now has Bravo, E! Oxygen, and Esquire TOGETHER on her plate. They both still report to Bonnie Hammer. Got it? Net/Net, Adam and Francis are going to be really, really, REALLY busy now, but at least they're together.

-I gotta say, I'm pretty surprised that Married and You're the Worst on FX have both been renewed for a second season. They both did nothing for me, but I"m happy that Nat Faxon and Judy Greer still have jobs as I'm a fan of both of them, specially Nat. He gives people who decided against braces, hope that fame and fortune is not out of their reach.

-Also surprising, a 3rd season for Mistresses, I really thought that one would be cancelled. Okay Alyssa Milano, you can put that pool in and take that vacation to Fiji.

-Yvette Nicole Brown is leaving Community to care for her ailing father.  Community's coming back but it's coming to Yahoo when it does. Let's see how loyal it's fans really are. Will they follow it there?

-You know I LOVE Rob Lowe and everything he does right? Have you guys seen his new Direct TV spots? Ya gotta give the guy credit. He's not afraid to make fun of himself is he? The unattractive Rob and the creepy Rob FREAKED ME OUT. I'm sticking with the real, hot, 50 year old beautiful Rob.

-Netflix dumped so shows last night while you were sleeping last night. Sure they have to make room for new stuff, but if you were  Battlestar Gallactica fan or wanted to become one, sorry...gone from Netflix

-Jimmy Fallon will be helping NBC out with the Superbowl this year. No surprise there. I think he needs to call Justin Timberlake NOW and start working on a few things though. Justin's got a busy schedule, better get on that JF!
