One comment

  • I thought about watching ROMANTICALLY CHALLENGED but I decided I’d wait to see if it gets cancelled. I’m tired of picking up shows only to see them vanish in a month. I’m also not sure I really want to see another show about young people dating and searching for Mr/Miss Right. It’s been done a few times in the past. We’ll see how it goes though.
