Okay, so Michael Ausiello didn’t exactly ruin our weekend. That said, knowing this and this while watching what otherwise would have been two fairly entertaining episodes of DESPERATE HOUSEWIVES and BROTHERS & SISTERS certainly didn’t help.
Now, instead of applauding Marc Cherry for turning around a fairly uneven season of HOUSEWIVES with a surprisingly poignant finale that featured a sympathetic Eddie, victorious Angie and doozy of a baby-swap tease for next season, we find ourselves disappointed that the network allowed for super-scooper Michael Ausiello to spoil what could have been a deliciously delightful surprise in the form of Paul Young’s (Mark Moses) unexpected return to Wisteria Lane. As for BROTHERS & SISTERS, any and all slack we were prepared to cut the show due to Rob Lowe’s highly publicized exit all but evaporated thanks to the network’s insistence on needlessly revealing what would have been a gut-wrenching final few moments courtesy of their far-too-revealing promos!
In short ABC, you’ve got some ‘splainin’ to do!
