Television is rife with ethically dubious characters. This week a bunch of them made us laugh, cry and cheer their misdeeds. Gossip Girl's Little J set her sights on her stepsister's boyfriend, Southland's Detective Bryant saw a young mentee become a murderer, Jesse exacted delicious revenge on his already exhausted parents on Breaking Bad, and Anna, V's alien den mother, followed up some really weird sex with a little cannibalism. Welcome to Top Moments: Dirty Rotten Scoundrels Edition. 11. Best Cliff-hanger: Caprica's mid-season finale reveals that Zoe the Robot Dead Girl is on the run! After learning that her father, Daniel Graystone, plans to remove her consciousness from its Cylon body for eventual destruction, Zoe high-tails it out the door to join her Soldiers of the One cohorts in Gemenon. She kills her charming suitor, Philomon, along the way. It's unclear how the giant robot - essentially a giant pile of steel - will escape, given the massive roadblock she faces as the episode ends. But is it weird that we're kind of rooting for her? 10. Best Femme Fatale-in-Training: Our Little J is all growed up! In this week's Gossip Girl, a drugged Jenny Humphrey narrowly avoids a date rape with the help of a surprising rescuer: Nate Archibald (aka Serena's true love... this week). They've always been fond of each other, but Nate's protective overture raises visions of boyfriend-stealing in Little J's ethically complicated, peroxide compromised noggin. If Jenny's pathetic Internet stalking is any indication, Serena should prepare for the worst. 9. Best Intro: Fringe returns from a too-long hiatus with "Peter," a blockbuster episode that flashes back to 1985 to explain how the younger Bishop came to be both dead and not so. In keeping with the show's totally tubular setting, those cheeky monkeys at J.J. Abrams' Bad Robot Productions reimagine the show's opening credits, theme song and title cards as if they had been created 25 years ago. The overall effect is subtly wry and eerily accurate.

James getting voted out while holding onto two hidden immunity idols. Erik letting Natalie convince him to give away his immunity idol, then immediately getting burned for it. The pantheon of amazingly bad Survivor plays got a new addition this past week, when Tyson made the shocking mistake of changing his vote at the last minute, disrupting a sure-fire plan Rob had concocted to get rid of either Russell or Parvati - and in the process, leading Tyson himself to be voted out. It was an amazing turn of events for Survivor fans, and when I spoke to Tyson, I had to begin with the question most of us were thinkingâ¦ To Read More Click Here .
After suffering what turned out to be a torn anterior cruciate ligament in last week's reward challenge on Survivor, James Clement seemed like a dead man walking. With four immunity-challenge losses to the Villains tribe, the last thing the Heroes needed was to keep an injured player. However, thanks to his strong alliance within the tribe, James was saved and Tom Westman was eliminated. Unfortunately, even after Colby Donaldson made a speech to the Heroes tribe about his impending exit, James was the one voted out because of his knee injury. The 32-year-old Clement spoke with us about Colby's lackadaisical attitude, his argument with Stephenie LaGrossa and who he thinks is the "Kareem Abdul-Jabbar of Survivor." To Read More Click Here .
After a week off, Survivor: Heroes vs. Villains returned with ousters on both the Villains and the Heroes tribe. On the Villains team, Russell Hantz returned to his Samoa glory days when he pulled out a hidden immunity idol after getting a warning from "Boston Rob" Mariano. However, Russell floored his tribe mates when he opted against using the idol to save himself, instead saving ally Parvati Shallow. The move could have cost Russell his spot on the island, but the big move sent rival Tyson Apostol home instead. The 30-year-old spoke with TVGuide.com about why he blames himself for being blind-sided, who he wishes he had voted for instead, and how far he thinks his teammates will make it.

* Cougar Town (9:30/8:30c ABC) Although the antagonistic Jules and Grayson can trade insults with the best of them, there's no denying a growing attraction between the two over the course of this first season. But Cougar fans in will-they-or-won't-they mode will have to put those thoughts on hold, because tonight begins a multi-episode arc for Sheryl Crow as Sara, a new love interest for Grayson. And after next week, when the Grammy winner's alter ego greases Grayson's songwriting gears, will Jules even have a chance? * Survivor: Heroes vs. Villains (8/7c CBS) The heroes chose to vote out fireman Tom and keep banged-up James, who is hobbling around on a severely injured leg, in the previous episode. That decision could come back to haunt them if James isn't able to perform up to his usually high level. If the heroes falter, James will likely get his torch snuffed. But what has most everyone worried in this episode is the news of a rare double elimination. Rivals Russell and Boston Rob target one another as the next villain to be ousted, but Russell seemingly has the upper hand because he holds the hidden immunity idol. * Law & Order: Special Victims Unit (10/9c NBC) Singer Jill Scott and Quinton Aaron (The Blind Side) guest star as the sister and nephew of a disabled woman who was beaten and raped. They are not only her relatives but also her caregivers, and those roles put them at the top of the suspect list as Benson and Stabler try to get the victim to tell them what happened. This is no easy task, since the victim's advanced multiple sclerosis renders her unable to speak. * The Middle (8:30/7:30c ABC) It's crisis time for Frankie when a hard-nosed motivational consultant (Amy Sedaris from Strangers with Candy) comes to shake things up at the car dealership where she works. Frankie thinks her job may be on the line, so she winds up working extra hours. That leaves Mike with extra responsibilities on the home front, such as helping Brick with a school project, giving advice to Sue's addled former boyfriend and trying to make their home the "fun" house for Axl and his friends by getting a pool table. * Fly Girls (9/8c The CW ) Take four single Virgin America flight attendants who share a "crash pad" in Marina del Rey, add one bitchy colleague to the mix who is - of course! - a former friend of one of the gals before they had a distasteful fallout, and you have the makings of a soaring reality-series success. At least that's what executives at the CW hope. However, the reality is that Fly Girls stalls at the gate due to its tired and contrived format. Virgin America CEO Richard Branson appears in the opener that focuses on the ladies working a company party in Fort Lauderdale. Suffice it to say, this isn't his finest (half) hour. Source Here
As a Survivor hero, Tom Westman seemed to have it all: great physical ability, a strong social game and $1 million from winning Survivor: Palau. Unfortunately for the 46-year-old former firefighter, the last factor proved to be his undoing. After using a hidden immunity idol to save himself during last week's tribal council, Tom had his torch put out when the opposing alliance proved too big to defeat. As Tom said, "I was not going quietly into the dark night so they needed to get rid of me." The fallen hero spoke with TVGuide.com about why he was sent home, his predictions for ally Colby and the reason he almost didn't return for Survivor: Heroes vs. Villains. To Read More Click Here .

Cirie has had one of the most fascinating journeys in the history of Survivor, form a contestant in Survivor: Panama (AKA: Exile Island) who claimed she was afraid of leaves and didn't belong there at all, to one of the most skilled and formidable manipulators the game has ever seen. After proving how great a player she was in two previous seasons, including Micronesia, Cirie came into Heroes vs. Villains with a target on her back, that had contestants like Tom gunning for her immediately. Cirie seemed to be gaining her old foothold though, as she aligned with JT, Rupert, James, Candice and her old Micronesia partner Amanda. But a riveting series of events began when Tom found a hidden immunity idol, and eventually led to JT turning on Cirie, and helping Colby and Tom vote her out. I spoke to Cirie to get her thoughts on JT turning on her, her reputation in the game, the infamous Russell and much more. To Read More Click Here .
