83rd Annual Academy Awards

As we kick into Week 10, we've already got casualties. No more Ben Elton: Live From Planet Earth, House is bouncing around, there's talk of 6PM with George Negus becoming 6:30PM, Southland & The Shield have vanished unceremoniously, & Top Gear is in trouble.

Fringe

Here we go, people - this week marks the start of the official ratings period for 2011. Excited? I sure as hell am.
