count me in as another one who hasn't really been interested in the show in years. I think the last time I watched the show on a regular basis was the sixth season. I totally missed last year, as I didn't care for the sixth season. I can't even pay attention to everything going on in the recent season when I've watched it. Totally different show and it seems the producers just don't care. I would think for the last year they would have been more better at it, refrencing things from when the show started. I mean remember when this show first started, it was a phemonon, now not so much.
I generally watch reruns on lifetime or put in the first season on DVD.
