  1. Will all the show be repeats now?
    Thank you.

  2. Yup. They start taping it again in November.

  3. November? OMG. Last year it started in September (the 18th I believe was the first show). That seems so far away. I'm not whining I just want to see new shows sooner rather than later. LOL.
