The highest court ruled Knox's previous acquittal for the murder conviction of old roommate Meredith Kircher was suspended. Thus, a new trial will begin.

The Tuesday Playlist: Funny Ladies, ABC's Knox Exclusive, Grimm's New Night

Everyone's losing it — or more to the point, remembering how they lost it — on one of this season's more uproarious episodes of Fox's New Girl, a reminder of just how potent the comic chemistry can be between Zooey Deschanel and her BFFs when they all hang together, sharing embarrassing stories (some more mortifying than others) about how their "innocence" (such as it never was) was stolen. This episode (Tuesday, 8:58/7:58c) will be especially enjoyable for fans of Max Greenfield's Fat Schmidt slapstick and for those who've been waiting for Lamorne Morris' Winston to emerge from the sidelines and get some major LOL action. Jess (Deschanel) starts the trip down Painful Memory Lane with glimpses from Prom Night, which brings suitors including Teen Wolf's Dylan O'Brien (Stiles!) into her life. But it's Winston's grotesque hook-up and Fat Schmidt's messy night in college with the girlfriend who would become Merritt Wever (from Nurse Jackie) that you're likely to remember. All that and another great payoff at the end. No sophomore slump for this show.

Top Moments: Karl Rove Can't Handle the Truth and The Walking Dead's Double Deaths

Our top moments of the week:

15. Impeccable Timing Award: After what host Jeff Probst calls the most "complicated" and "entertaining" Tribal Council ever, former MLB player Jeff Kent is voted off Survivor: Philippines, a result of him betraying his alliance. But even more surprising than Jeff's ouster is his hilariously timely rant afterward, during which he points out that the show's $1 million prize is really only "600 grand after Obama takes it." It's all the more funny since the show was filmed earlier this year and his elimination just happened to air the day after Barack Obama's re-election.
