Most Shocking Finale: GREY’S ANATOMY unleashed a shooter on the staff and kept us on the edge of our seats.
Best New Series, Kickass Division: Fun dialogue, sexy subplots and action sequences to die for make NIKITA — and star Maggie Q — the one to beat. Not that you could if you tried.
Most Promising Cliffhanger, Never-Resolved Division: In the final moments of FLASHFORWARD, the world experienced another blackout before the screen went dark for the final time.
Summer Series Most In Need Of A Facelift: Everything about BIG BROTHER has become stale, including host Julie Chen. Well, she hasn’t “become” stale. She always was.
Most Disgusting Competition On A Reality Show: We’d rather eat bugs then be forced to re-watch the BACHELOR PAD episode in which contestants answered questions like “Who had the worst boob job?” and “Who will always be a bridesmaid, but never a bride?”
Worst Storyline, Daytime Division: GENERAL HOSPITAL thug Sonny Corinthos — the show’s hero — shot an unarmed cop at point-blank range.
Best Storyline, Daytime Division: Thanks to pumping music, masks and a case of mistaken identity, THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL’s Brooke “accidentally” slept with the boyfriend of her teenage daughter. Hey, it could happen!
Reason We’re Still Watching GLEE: Frankly, the storytelling is so horrendous it nearly drove us away… until Darren Criss’ Blaine and the Warblers came along.
Least Self-Aware Pseudo Celebrity: Watching THE REAL HOUSEWIVES OF ATLANTA’s Kim Zolciak try carving out a career as a “singer” made us furious on behalf of all the truly gifted folks out there not given the platform her lazy, talent-free butt undeservedly has.
Best Sense Of Humor: Between it’s weekly self-mocking title card (“All I Want For Christmas Is A New Title” or “100% Cougar Free”) and litany of running gags (Jules pulling out “the guns” or the giant wine glass known as “Big Joe”), COUGAR TOWN wins this one, hands down.
