Tonight's TV Hot List: Wednesday, March 10, 2010

* Ugly Betty (10:01/9:01c ABC) A fire may have ruined the Suarez house in Queens a month ago, but as the investigation drags on in this episode, the family is still under one roof: in Betty's Manhattan apartment. And she'll do just about anything - including dating an obnoxious firefighter (Rich Sommer) - if it will help to speed up the process. Meanwhile, Hilda's nervous about meeting Bobby's parents (Lainie Kazan, Nestor Serrano), and Ignacio and Justin confide in Amanda and Marc, respectively, about their recent displacement. * America's Next Top Model (8/7c The CW ) The 14th cycle begins in typical Top Model fashion with 32 would-be models in Los Angeles bringing out their fiercest expressions for Tyra and the J's in hopes of being one of the 13 finalists. But, this being ANTM, there is plenty of drama before that number is whittled down to a baker's dozen. And the lead dramatist is Angelea, the tough-talking Buffalo gal who just missed the cut last season. Is that why she's back? Tonight's 90-minute season debut also features a guest appearance by Perez Hilton. * Law & Order: Special Victims Unit (10/9c NBC) Lena Olin guest stars as Ingrid Block, the fierce defense attorney of a businessman who's suspected of murdering a woman linked to a Ponzi scheme. Benson and Stabler realize their investigation resembles a murder from 20 years prior, so they reopen that case. Soon Block's tactics get extreme, to the point where the legality of her actions is called into question by DA Jack McCoy (Sam Waterston). * Psych (10/9c USA Network ) Shawn once again becomes the target of a madman (or madwoman?) in the fourth-season finale. After finally capturing the serial killer that had eluded his father years before and discovering that the killer was, in fact, a she, Shawn thought he had put Mr. Yang behind him. But a series of deadly scenarios modeled after classic Hitchcock films seems to point back to the imprisoned Mr. Yang. Ally Sheedy returns as the clever psychopath. * High Society (9:30/8:30 The CW ) Welcome to the low-brow of High Society, where drinks and insults are thrown, backbiting is a sport and people are like empty designer handbags - there to impress those who care, but nothing going on inside. The reality series follows Manhattan socialite Tinsley Mortimer and her inner circle, which includes her mother and sister - and a friend who, after explaining that her friends usually aren't Jewish, black or gay, reveals that her dream job is to work for the United Nations. In the opener, Tinsley relocates to a midtown loft following the breakup of her marriage. Source Here

'Law & Order: SVU': Should NBC have kept the Kathy Griffin/Mariska Hargitay kiss?

One week ago, NBC released video of a same-sex kiss between Mariska Hargitay and guest star Kathy Griffin in an effort to promote last night's return of Law & Order: SVU. But it didn't happen! The U.S. telecast cut directly from Kathy going in for the kiss to Mariska being all 'Back off, bitch!' Or, in Law & Order language (LOL): Whoa, whoa, whoa, now. That's not on the menu. I'm personally more outraged at the cheesy dialogue throughout and Benson's 'I wouldn't go in there if I were you' warning than by NBC's weird decision here. What do you think? Should NBC have kept the kiss? And will this show ever get the gay thing right? Source & Video

Wednesday Ratings: American Idol Overpowers ABC's Comedy Block - Featured

American Idol delivered another powerhouse win in the ratings Wednesday night, as nearly all its competition suffered ratings declines. Fox won the night overall as Idol's two-hour broadcast drew 23.5 million viewers, handily defeating all competitors among adults 18-to-49. Placing a distant second was CBS, whose The New Adventures of Old Christine (6 million viewers) and Gary Unmarried (6 million viewers) were down 26 percent and 17 percent in the demo, respectively. Criminal Minds (13.2 million) fell slightly, but CSI: NY (12.5 million viewers) was down 9 percent in the demo, most likely due to new competition from Law & Order: Special Victims Unit at 10/9c. Two hours of SVU, with special guest stars Kathy Griffin and Mischa Barton averaged 8.5 million viewers, helping to lift NBC to third place overall for the second night in a row. Mercy (6 million viewers) was down 11 percent in the demo going head-to-head against Idol. ABC's comedies also took a tumble. Leading out of a Modern Family repeat, The Middle pulled in 6 million viewers, and slid 28 percent in the demo from its last original episode. New episodes of Modern Family (8.8 million viewers) and Cougar Town (5.4 million viewers) declined 15 and 11 percent in the demo, respectively. Oprah's Oscar special pulled in only 4.4 million viewers, and was 19 percent off Ugly Betty 's average mark in that timeslot. Source Here

Tonight's TV Hot List: Wednesday, March 3, 2010 - Featured

* Law & Order: Special Victims Unit (10/9c NBC) Stabler, Benson & Co. return to the 10 o'clock timeslot - and have brought Kathy Griffin and Mischa Barton along with them. Griffin plays the leader of a lesbian-rights organization who helps the detectives investigate the murder of a fellow member, while Barton plays a victim who gets emotionally involved with Benson. * Nip/Tuck (10/9c FX ) Christian and Sean finally walk off into the sunset as the drama series concludes. Will they do it together? That would be a spoiler, but it doesn't give anything away to say that they arrive at an understanding. They also square things away with Liz (after Sean squared things away with Julia last week). And Matt? He has plenty of squaring away yet to do. (Famke Janssen's in the guest cast again.) Meanwhile, there's still work to do at McNamara/Troy: a scar to remove from an adult actor - a very adult actor. * Oprah Winfrey Oscar Special (10/9c ABC) Oprah doesn't have the Oscar-tradition thing going for her the way Barbara Walters does - yet - but this is Year 2 for this gabfest, and if Oprah wants to make a tradition, well... she usually gets what she wants. Besides, Walters' Oscar-night abdication leaves an opening. The format (same as last year): Movie folk interview each other and Oprah oversees. Pairings include Halle Berry-Penélope Cruz; Ben Affleck-Jeremy Renner; Glenn Close-Michael Douglas; and Avatar director James Cameron and cast members Sam Worthington, Zoe Saldana and Sigourney Weaver. * American Idol (8/7c Fox) After pulling an abrupt, last-minute change yesterday (the men were originally slated to perform tonight but were shifted to last night's episode), Idol moves forward with ladies' night. So it's the flex of the fairer sex when the Top 10 remaining females perform tonight. The focus turns to a contingent so promising that both Simon and Randy have predicted that a woman will win it all in Season 9. * Faces of America With Henry Louis Gates Jr (8/7c PBS) As anyone who has investigated their family's genealogy can attest, the interwoven strands of family histories are both wondrous and amusing, the former due to the ancestors we discover and the latter because of the famous, albeit very distant, relations we uncover. Such is the case in the series finale, as Mike Nichols and Meryl Streep learn that they have famous, if distant cousins - each other! The poet Elizabeth Alexander, meanwhile, learns that she's descended from royalty. * Ghost Hunters 100th Episode (9/8c Syfy ) Jason and Grant kick off their sixth season with a two-hour stay at America's favorite prison island-turned-tourist attraction, Alcatraz, the former "home" of mob legend Al Capone. Dustin Pari and Barry Fitzgerald from Ghost Hunters International cross over to join the search for phantom inmates. Destination Truth guy Josh Gates hosts. Source Here
