You watching Amazing Race?
Hey, folks: I'm looking for fans of "Amazing Race." Is this season more/less fun than previous races, by having 4 in family instead of 2-person teams? Are you enjoying it more or less?

Also include your name, suburb/neighborhood, age and daytime phone. Thanks!
Josh Hutcherson goes big time

TV war is over
I'm not surprised to see that FX has canceled “Over There,” the Iraq war drama that ended its 13-episode run last week.

Also, producer Steven Bochco has moved on to a new gig, running ABC's new top 10 series "Commander in Chief."
