Best In Joke: Everybody knows a long-running show is in trouble when they give established characters a baby or long-lost sibling. So when SUPERNATURAL gave the Winchester boys a bro, the scribes titled the episode “Jump The Shark.”
Most Over-hyped Reality Contestant: The folks at SURVIVOR tried convincing us that Russell was the kind of guy who ate live kittens. Instead, he was all bark and no bite, more imp than demon.
Most Misleading Ad Campaign: Before its debut, commercials for THE GOOD WIFE had us anticipating a juicy political potboiler. What we got instead was a stale courtroom drama. Great performances on behalf of the cast, but not the bill of goods we were sold.
Lamest Kiss: Given the pre-buss buzz, we expected the same-sex liplock between GOSSIP GIRL’s Chuck and Josh to rock our worlds. Instead, it was about as passionate as a grandma’s kiss on the cheek. (Although we did enjoy Chuck saying to Blair, “Do you really think I’ve never kissed a guy before?”)
Best Single Episode: BIG LOVE’s road-trip centric episode, “Come, Ye Saints” gave every member of the Hendrickson clan a major moment as Bill and Nikki’s individual pill-popping secrets came out, Margene got an unwelcome admirer and we all realized why family vacations aren’t what they’re cracked up to be.
Proof That You Can Teach An Old Dog New Tricks: In less than a year, DAYS OF OUR LIVES went from trash to treasure, regaining a healthy share of its audience in the process.
Most Shocking Moment: We were grossed out — and then laughed our butts off — when a dog ate the heart meant for ONE TREE HILL’s Dan.
Worst Planning: THE L WORD spent an entire season asking us “who killed Jenny?” and then never resolved the question!
Reality Trend That Needs To Stop Immediately: For the love of God, no more REAL HOUSEWIVES OF… well, anywhere!
