'Grey's': Everything We Know About ER's, We Learned in High School

As promised in promos, a high-schooler shows up in the ER with a pencil shoved in his left eye which, you'll recall, last week we thought was a metaphor for the writers' strike. But the pencil was shoved in his eye and his brain, which means this week's episode is...

'The Office': Up a Legal Stream Without a (Ping-Pong) Paddle

The star of last night's "The Office"? You've gotta go with the tortured stenographer at Jan's absurd deposition who was forced to read back Michael's lines to the judge -- lines such as: "That's what she said" (twice) and "I have to go to the bathroom" (more than twice). I...

'Project Runway': Grading on Their Curves

Open your blue books, people. Pop quiz. One question: pass/fail. After four seasons at Heidi High, you're either in...or you're out of touch. Auf wiedersehen. The question: As this fourth-year senior of a show returned last night, why is Bravo's "Project Runway" so broadly, wildly addictive? The answer, of course,...

'Top Model': Bottom of the Barrel?

It struck us just as last night's episode of "America's Next Top Model" wrapped up. Seven girls stood before her. But as hard as we tried, we didn't see a star in the bunch. Plenty of pretty girls (even one that could do body-double work for Rihanna). But every one...

'Project Runway': Are We In? Oh, We Are SO In.

Really, only one term comes to mind as "Project Runway" die-hards chatter and text and ping tonight's season kickoff at a fever pitch. No, not "Auf Wiedersehen!" Nor "Guten Tag." But rather: "Verklempt!" As in: I haven't seen so many fellow Klum Clubbers so "verklempt" (or verklemmt) since Heidi recently...

Yawning 'With the Stars'

Is there not one real moment on this show? Marie's look of surprise when she hears she's safe: fake. Cameron's smarmy answer when he's asked whether Helio is an ally or a threat: fake. Backstage scene of the dancers waiting to hear the word: fake, fake, fake. Also fake: The...

'Dancing': A Little Bit Country, a Lotta Bit 'Orange Sugar'

Gah. If you need a pom-pom sporting Richard Simmons to give you a pep talk on self-esteem, then you've either: A) reached an unparalleled level of desperation to snare more votes; or B) you're cynically working the woe-is-poor-insecure-me angle a little too hard; or C) both. Which is to say,...

'Heroes': Gotta Love a 'Shotgun' Wedding

Finally on "Heroes": answers, answers, sweet glorious answers. But, really, were there enough? Niki/Jessica/Gina and hipster-victim D.L. (NBC) This one was the strongest episode of the season, as well as the most promoted -- lots of show producers and actors on the PR offensive for this one. (Heck, they even...

'Housewives': Onboard Babies to Outboard Hit Jobs

Among the funniest moments in last's night's episode of "Desperate Housewives" ('You Can't Judge a Book by Its Cover') 4. Lynette moving her mother's suitcases from the trunk of Lynette's car to her sister's, then driving off. 3. Bree lying to arrange for Benjamin's circumcision. 2. Gaby hitting Victor and...
