Things this TV addict will never get over: STYLISTA? Seriously? Okay, kids, you know the song by heard: “For this they cancelled JACK AND BOBBY, EVERWOOD and VERONICA MARS?”
Best scene stealer: THE BIG BANG THEORY’s Jim Parsons somehow turns every single movement alter ego Sheldon makes into comedy gold. Here’s hoping he takes home some Emmy gold for his efforts.
Person most responsible for a show losing their credibility: The fact that Cloris Leachman managed to remain on DANCING WITH THE STARS as long as she did proved that the show is anything but a talent contest.
Man we love to hate: Not since Larry Hagman’s JR Ewing gave the entire city of DALLAS reason to wanna shoot him have we had so hiss-worthy a bad boy as GOSSIP GIRL’s Chuck Bass, played to slimy perfection by Ed Westwick.
Most unfortunately-accurate title: Wonder if perhaps PUSHING UP DAISIES would have lived longer if it had been given a different name?
Sexiest geek: Sara Rue melted our hard drive as THE BIG BANG THEORY’s Dr. Stephanie Barnett.
Least believable geek: Call us crazy, but we have a feeling that Zachary Levi being named one of People Magazine’s sexiest men alive kinda hurts Chuck Bartowski’s geek cred. Then again, it gives millions of techno heads out there someone to look up to.
Best move: In making the move to New York City, UGLY BETTY remembered to pack the funny… and wisely left Henry behind.
Worst move: Sorry, but the Mills family should have just stayed in Wichita – and the CW shouldn’t have messed with a classic – ‘cause the new version of 90210 has been a major disappointment on pretty much every level. Which doesn’t bode very well for their upcoming take on MELROSE PLACE!
The “truth in advertising” award goes to…: DOUBLE SHOT OF LOVE. This bisexual trashfest features tawdry twins Vikki and Rikki, who bill themselves as… wait for it… wait for it… the Ikki twins. We couldn’t have put it better ourselves.
Best Paula moment: Everybody’s favorite AMERICAN IDOL train wreck critiques a performance contestant Jason Castro hasn’t yet given.
Spinoff we’re dying for: CBS needs to give Alex Kapp Homer and Tricia O’Kelley – aka “the mean mommies” from THE NEW ADVENTURES OF OLD CHRISTINE – a show ASAP. I mean, it ain’t everyone who can steal scenes right out from under Julia Louis-Dreyfus.
Best import: The addition of JOURNEYMAN’s Kevin McKidd to the cast of GREY’S ANATOMY has almost made us forget all the backstage BS distracting us from the on-screen antics of the Seattle Grace docs. We said almost.
Favorite “throw-away” moment: As the closing credits roll on each episode of KATH & KIM, the lead characters share a little tabloid time. It’s the perfect ending to a majorly under appreciated show.
