A few nights ago, when Modern Family's Cameron-as-Fizbo tried on a court jester's shtick for size, Mitchell offered this dour rejoinder: "There goes the theory that an English accent makes everyone sound smart." I don't think it's Anglophile snobbery that has me celebrating the return of Being Human to BBC America's lineup Saturday night, while being left as cold as a cadaver by Syfy's spotty remake.

Aiden Turner isn't the only one who felt cheated after his Dancing with the Stars elimination. The former All My Children star says his partner, Edyta Sliwinska, disagreed with the result as well.
