In what initially comes off as a Habitat for Inhumanity — fueled by reality-competition juices that upstage the do-gooder impulse of neighborhood home renovation — NBC's derivative American Dream Builders takes its visual cues from Extreme Makeover Home Edition (airing in that show's old time period, Sundays at 8/7c), complete with an elaborate weekly reveal, although the only bus here is the one the contestants repeatedly throw each other under. Dream Builders' emotional dynamic is more attuned to Celebrity Apprentice in its nightmare blueprint of clashing egos getting in the way of a job well done.

Next to Charlie Brown's Great Pumpkin, my favorite Halloween TV touchstone is The Simpsons' annual "Treehouse of Horror" special, with Mad Magazine-worthy parodies of things that go "D-oh!" in the night. It's airing unusually early this year in advance of post-season baseball pre-emptions, but what better way to get in the spirit — and as a bonus for the 24th edition (Sunday, 8/7c, Fox), horror maestro Guillermo Del Toro has designed an elaborate "couch gag" opening sequence that's a kaleidoscopic homage to...
Like the show's titular character, Drop Dead Diva is coming back to life!

Oops! Meanwhile, Old Jane pushed the return button, sending her back to Earth. But whose body will she end up in?

Jane Bingum — the real one — will return in the season finale of Drop Dead Diva!
The real Jane (Brooke Elliott) was last seen in the series premiere, in which she took a bullet for Parker (Josh Stamberg). At the same time, Deb (then portrayed by Brooke D'Orsay) died in a car accident. When Deb got to heaven, she pressed the "return" button on Fred's (Ben Feldman) keyboard and came back to Earth in the only body available: Jane's. Now, in the Season 4 finale, we'll find out where real Jane has been all this time.

"The season is definitely heading towards a wedding with Jane and somebody."
That's right, Drop Dead Diva's former model-turned-lawyer — in another body, natch — may soon be walking down the aisle, according to creator Josh Berman, who says Jane (Brooke Elliott) will find herself in the middle of a love triangle between Grayson (Jackson Hurst) and Owen (Lex Medlin). However, the tables have turned this season, with Jane trying to move on from her former love while Grayson is coming closer to uncovering her secret: That she's his ex-girlfriend Deb. But is it too late for Grayson and Jane, especially after he shared that smooch with Stacy (April Bowlby)?
