On the Glowy Box: You suck, Tyra

[Professor Farnsworth voice] Good news, everyone! [/Professor Farnsworth voice] Gillian Anderson will host the new mini-season of Masterpiece Theatre! Nicely done, PBS. Now I have something to watch in January.

Last Night:
Pushing Daisies: WOAH. That was some bombshell at the end, there! I though we were supposed to get closure last night. Was that a cruel joke? Anyway, quality episode, as always. I do feel the need to point out, however, that a bonobo is NOT a monkey. It's an ape. And it's not "gentle," either. It's legendarily horny. The Wish a Wish monkey was nothing like a bonobo (perhaps a capuchin?). Just sayin'. Also, why wasn't Olive strongly affected when she tasted the mood enhancer? That kind of threw me off, since I was expecting something to come of it. The Chuck/Ned scenes, though, were uniformly fantastic. Lee Pace more than earned his paycheck last night. Also, the coroner was really rocking that Christmas sweater.

Project Runway: I should have a full recap up later on, but I loved last night's challenge! And it definitely separated the wheat from the chaff. Also, poor Jack! I hope they can bring him back next season, because he really deserves another shot at this show. And okay, is anyone else really starting to like Sweet P? Just wanted to throw that out there. More later!

America's Next Top Model: I can't really think about last night's finale without throwing up in my mouth a little, so I'm just going to link to my recap and go on my merry way. Except to say this: Worst Cycle Ever.

30 Rock: Tracy cannot participate in the staff's annual Ludachristmas party; Liz's parents (Buck Henry, Anita Gillette) and brother (Andy Richter) come to gloat over her. 9 PM, NBC.

Aaaand...that's about it. Thank God for 30 Rock. And for whatever the hell else is sitting on my DVR waiting to be watched (I'm looking at you, Life, so get ready!)
