When it comes to the other networks, Fox received solid numbers thanks to baseball while NBC’s lineup of comedies plus “The Apprentice” struggled yet again.

Maybe once we get through our holiday hangover, television life will get back on track. After all, what used to be new season excitement has been moved to mid-season with new offerings from the likes of “24”, “Lost” and the Obama family favorite “American Idol” showing up after the new year.
This show is great in that instead of wondering whether or not someone will fall in love with another character, viewers wonder if Jane really is that smart or if he does have psychic powers. Is Patrick Jane Sherlock Holmes or is he Miss Cleo? Why can’t he be both? Fans of his show may never know as his powers of observation are all we have to go with. There’s not any instant flashes we see in his head nor are there any dead spirits he talks to in order to help solve cases. Throw in a madman named Red John and you have the makings of a Holmes-Moriarty showdown over Reichenbach Falls. Except this story may well end on the “Hollywood” sign or some other California landmark if The Mentalist has its way.
