On this season of So You Think You Can Dance, a famous face has graced the judging panel for every live show. Overall, we were impressed by the quality of these mostly articulate celebs who seemed to be genuine fans of the franchise and who were able to actually spout opinions instead of just clap like seals. So we've ranked the special guests (though not the choreographers who were plucked to be on the panel, because we'd never be able to decide between Lil 'C and Travis Wall) to determine who was the best this summer.
Let's start off with a little pilot casting news, shall we?
The only person more obsessed with hosting things than Hugh Jackman is Neil Patrick Harris. And that's the way I like it!
Guys, I don't know how it happened, but none of these TV news items put me in a bad mood at all. This is unprecedented! Which just has to mean television is going to be outlawed tomorrow or something equally horrific, but for now, let's live in the now and bask in the happy!
Shaq does something awesome (as usual), and Jeffrey Donovan does something very not awesome (unusual!), but at least James Marsters is in a space suit.
After starring in films such as The Sweetest Thing, View from the Top and Surviving Christmas, all Christina Applegate needed to rise from the pits of Blockbusters' clearance bin was a little sexual harassment from Ron Burgandy and a highly praised network television show. With new episodes of Samantha Who? returning April 7, the last thing Christina would want (or so I think) is a reminder of her past as a bimbo with a peroxide addiction, but as luck would have it, the complete eighth season of Married... With Children hit the DVD racks yesterday! So for shits, giggles, and to (hopefully) embarrass Christina, here's an episode of Married...With Children from season eight where she shines like an Emmy trophy that has just been polished and bleached blonde.

Man, Christina Applegate has been dealt a load of you-know-what in her thirty-six years. She spent the first part of her career establishing herself as a dumb ho in Married With Children and Don't Tell Mom The Babysitter's Dead, and the rest of it up to now trying to prove that she is the polar opposite. Add to that a not-so-fun divorce from Blue Steel-lookin' hubby Johnathon Schaech and a plagued Broadway debut (she took that whole break a leg thing sort of literally). But things were starting to look up! She killed in Anchorman as an able comedic sparring partner with Will Ferrell, and even had some success with a new ABC sitcom Samantha Who? (Full disclosure -- I kind of love that show.) So when the poor darlin' announced she had boob cancer, my heart went out to her.
