First, on Dancing With the Stars, lovably puppy-ish underdog Kyle Massey — who had very low name recognition when the season began, outside of Disney Channel viewers — pulled off a classy Viennese waltz with partner Lacey Schwimmer. He earned straight 9's and reignited judge Carrie Ann Inaba's crush on him. Then, the Cory in the House cutie performed an ebullient impromptu jive to "Good Golly Miss Molly" that earned Massey his first 10's of the season. If there's any justice, perennial low scorer Bristol Palin will finally be sent packin', and Massey will make it into DWTS' Final Four.
Meanwhile, on How I Met Your Mother, Kyle MacLachlan hilariously washed ashore as "The Captain" (aka George Van Smoot), the haughty, seafaring hubby of Zoe (Jennifer Morrison), Ted's latest love/hate interest. MacLachlan's had a damn fine TV career since Twin Peaks premiered 20 years ago, with extended runs on Sex & the City and Desperate Housewives. Hope HIMYM doesn't cut him loose anytime soon.
