Class warfare with the least casualties: If the Humphrey clan on GOSSIP GIRL are the “have nots”, the economy must not be doing as bad as everyone says. How else to explain that million dollar space they live in?
Show most likely to give nerds hope: Don’t tell your local Geek Squad guy, but in the real world, dudes like CHUCK don’t land superbabe Yvonne Strahovski.
Trend we wish were happening when we were in high school: Tyra and Landry, Serena and Dan, why weren’t ‘nerds’ cool back in the 90’s Oh, and while we’re on the subject, in our day, our the TV Addict’s family Nanny did not look anything like Grandma Saracen’s nurse.
Proof that six million bucks doesn’t buy what it used to: With it’s fetching, fighting female leads and more hype than God’s comeback, BIONIC WOMAN seemed like the show to beat… until viewers actually got a look at the revamped Jamie Somers and figured out that NBC forgot to hire decent writers.
Best show too many of you aren’t watching: Tina Fey and the team at 30 ROCK have turned their little comedy that could into the SEINFELD of the new millennium. Now of only it could get the kind of ratings Jerry’s antics did.
Show most people never even knew was on: JOURNEYMAN might not have had his trip cut short had NBC bothered to let people know when it was on.

This year’s “How has that not been cancelled yet?” award, Part II: If there’s anybody out there who should be grateful for the writers strike, it’s the folks at CAVEMEN, which would have been put out of our misery ages ago if not for the fact that it had original episodes in the can.
Biggest sophomore slump in the history of television: What do you get when you mix in a C-List Superboy, amnesia and one helluva boring journey to Feudal Japan. Millions of underwhelmed HEROES fans and one very bitter TV Addict.
Show’s that defied the sophomore slump: UGLY BETTY made us pretty happy, DEXTER turned in a killer season and BROTHERS & SISTERS made us want to raise a toast to the always-inebriated Walker clan.
