Cesar Millan, Barack Obama
As President-elect Barack Obama noted in his acceptance speech Tuesday, he and his family will be bringing a new puppy with them to the White House. The question is, what kind of pooch will become First Dog?

After last week's oh-so-A-List sold-out show at Madison Square Garden, Kathy was back "on the D-L" this week. Not that kind of D-L, as in Down-Low, but Kathy's kind of D-L: D-List. You can't get more D-List than being the special guest at the International Bear Roundup in San Francisco or getting your assistants a teaching gig at the Learning Annex. Since I'm not a Bears fan, my level of pre-excitement wasn't as high as usual going into this episode, but I decided to just grin and bear it (sorry, couldn't resist). Oh, please. You know Kathy could watch paint dry and I'd laugh. So, although I couldn't bear to look at Kathy doing things like signing the bare hairy bear ass of one of her fans at the convention, there were still lots of highlights: Kathy shared with us that her mama Maggie learned the word "skank" from watching Keeping Up With the Kardashians. Kathy, imitating Maggie: "I hope you don't turn into a skank like those God damn Kardashians! The mother thinks she's one ...

Remember that rotation of grad students I told you would be taking turns filling Zack's position as a Bones squint? One of them has been cast, and he's very familiar to fans of The Practice. Michael Badalucco, who played blue-collar Jimmy on the ABC legal drama, is booked for at least one episode, and will first appear a few weeks into Season 4. Yes, he's playing a grad student, but one who has "lived some years" akin to Grey's Anatomy's World's Oldest Intern, only not that long in the tooth.In the same episode, look for a visit from Dog Whisperer Cesar Millan, playing... himself. (Maybe he gets confused about a Lab needing help? Haw!) Matt MitovichRelated: Mega Minute: Bones Casting Scoop and More
This was a very strong new episode, and worth waiting for. Any show with cute animals gets bonus points from me. I'd always been a cat person until I got married and wound up with two "dog babies" of my own. Now I love dogs as much as I love cats, each for different reasons. Do you all remember the last episode with Bob the dog, when I'd mentioned that Melinda needed to learn about "calm assertive energy"? See? I was right! I would have liked for the scene with Cesar Millan to be a little bit longer, but it was cute. The whole Homer-Bob story was a fun way to lighten up a pretty dark and intense episode.I don't know that it was intentional, but in the beginning of the show, when they were focusing in on creepy doll faces and clown faces, one of the clowns made me think of the movie Poltergeist, which wound up being the big mislead until the ghost showed herself. I'm glad that they milked the poltergeist angle for a while, because getting Payne into the Gordons' house with all of tha...
