  1. You should really post something to explain what all the numbers and letters mean. I try to read it but I just get confused.

  2. Congrats :) looks good!


  4. go get’m

  5. I personally shut it off when Dancing gets over. 5 minutes of “RomChallenged” and I was off. Horrible acting/directing in that show. Just horrible.

  6. I love RC!….Aly makes the show …her charm and character role are one of her best yet. I never thought of Alyssa in terms of comedy and I don’t watch much comedy but this show has become contagious to me. Great job Alyssa!!


  7. Totally love the new series so far :) LOL

  8. will alyssa who plays rebecca do any rhyming?

  9. Alyssa, you are not suppose to the camera during your show as you did when Kyle lift you and place you on the sofa… but I’m not blaming you… it was hysterical and you were trying to control the laughter and the “embarrassment” of that moment… I love those moments during a comedy. I’m glad they left that there and not made a new take.
    Very funny. Is getting better and better.
    If people are smart, they will pick up the show and not wait one year or more like they did with Seinfeld.

  10. I attended the taping of “The Untitled Ricky Blitt Pilot”. Why was Olsen recasted? I loved your acting, loved his acting, .. I just loved the show. What happend? Please, any info would be welcome..

  11. I am still a bit confused as to why ABC threw RC into the middle of the Monday night lineup between Dancing and Castle. Why not put the show on the Wednesday night COMEDY lineup in the time slot that once belonged to Hank? ABC please don’t cancel the series just work it in to the comedy lineup next season or make it a summer series!
