Airing tonight (Sunday) are repeats of Fox Animation Domination from 7-8pm only.

Summing it up. Repeats of The Big Bang Theory & Two and a Half Men was impressive for the week. Everything else was OK (such as repeats of 2 Broke Girls, Last Man Standing, Mike & Molly) or just plain old terrible (such as repeats of New Girl and The Mindy Project).
