Most Misleading Title: If there is one single thing in CBS’ AMANDA KNOX: THE UNTOLD STORY that hasn’t been reported elsewhere in the endless coverage of the story, I’ll eat spinach AND brocolli. Yes, I’m that confident.
Best Celeb Blog: THE OFFICE’s Mindy Kaling (creator of Things I’ve Bought That I Love) is now writing on theconcernsofmindykaling… largely about things she’s bought and loves. (Don’t miss her lovely tribute to Steve Jobs!)
Coolest Idea: Sure, you still have to sit through commercials, but’s “Ad-Swap” button at least gives you an option as to which commercials to watch!

Best Read Of The Week: EW’s PopWatch featured a hysterical piece by Joshua Malina on the 7 reasons SPORTS NIGHT will never be made into a movie. Reason No. 4? “Felicity Huffman lives on an enormous pile of $50 bills somewhere in the Himalayas. Access to her is limited.”
Least Newsy Story Of The Week: “We now interrupt your regularly scheduled programming for the breaking news that New Jersey Governor Chris Christie is not running for president… just as he has said repeatedly from the beginning. The difference? This time he really, really means it.” 
Proof Your Mom Is Underpaid: At least two stars of THE REAL HOUSEWIVES OF NEW YORK will reportedly earn — and we use that word loosely — $500,000 next season. And we bet they won’t clean a single room or cook a single meal.

Most Unbelievable Doubletalk: Simon Cowell tried convincing folks that when he’d said THE X FACTOR would be a failure if it got less than 20 million viewers (it’s averaging 12), he didn’t mean from the start… he meant by the end. Something tells us even Paula Abdul didn’t buy that one.
