On the Glowy Box: Is it Friday yet?

Goodbye, Journeyman. I can't say I watched you, but I didn't actively dislike you or anything, so I'm sorry it had to end this way. (That said--BOO-YA to my two favorite new NBC shows getting full-season pickups, and to the two I don't watch probably getting cancelled. This never happens! In fact, usually the exact opposite happens! Well-played, NBC.)

Last Night:
Project Runway: From last Wednesday. Okay, yeah, I missed it last week and I just got time to watch it last night. Shut up. So what's with the hideous clothing two weeks in a row? Are the challenges too hard, or are these designers failing to live up to the whole "Most Talented Group Yet" claim? (I'm thinking the latter, personally.) And what's with Sweet P (besides her name)? She's done an iffy job at best on the two solo challenges, but a fantastic job on the team challenges! Unfortunately, this show doesn't reward collaborative skills nearly so much as solo talent. Oh, and Victorya? HATE! If you openly defy your leader and change stuff behind his back, that's not so much his being a bad leader as your being mutinous. Though Ricky's own outfit was awful.

Janice Dickinson Modeling Agency: Janice and Dubya should have a drama-manufacturing contest. I'm honestly not sure who would win! Read my full recap here.

Pushing Daisies: Ned tries to make peace with Chuck while trying to figure out who killed an insurance adjuster found frozen solid; scent expert Oscar Vibenius (Paul Reubens) tries to figure out what is different about Chuck and Digby. 8 PM, ABC.

America's Next Top Model: Three models compete and one is sent home, then the final two go head-to-head in a magazine cover shoot and the ultimate catwalk. 8 PM, The CW.

Project Runway: The designers learn the importance of transformation in fashion. 10 PM, Bravo.

Machine Gun Shootout: In this Vanguard special report, Current TV exposes one side of the gun culture issue at the largest machine gun shoot in the country - an event most Americans probably didn't know existed. 10 PM, Current TV.

Heeeey, there's actually good stuff on tonight! Like, enough to fill a night of viewing! Enjoy it while you can, folks.
