Janelle, FLASHPOINT is a summer show, and I too enjoy it. From what I can tell it will be returning next summer. Here’s a Cinema Static Tidbit: It’s a Canadian production that is shared with CBS.

I don’t know who that Chinese chick thought she was firing Leah and Holly, they were the BEST and the prettiest to look at. Go figure too much competition for ya? I don’t watch anymore either. Bad move on the CBS producers part

Janelle September 24, 2011 at 11:26 am

Where is Flashpoint? I love that show ????

Joanne September 9, 2011 at 6:30 pm

I won’t watch The Talk anymore since Leah and Holly are gone.

have two of the women left the show? I hope not because I don’t care for the two that have been on the last two days! If they are the new ones, I won’t be watching anymore.
