One of the better things about a good episode of NBC's stalwart Law & Order: Special Victims Unit is that you can rarely tell where it's headed. Is tonight's cameo-heavy hour (10/9c) the latest condemnation of reality TV's sordid excesses? Sure looks that way at the start, as we encounter an especially slimy Michael McKean (relishing his repulsiveness) as the predatory producer of a crap-tastic train wreck titled Showgirls, featuring young hopefuls who would do "whatever it takes" to land the starring role in a Broadway musical. (No small irony this is airing the week of the all-important-to-NBC Smash premiere, where such things could never happen!) As he liquors up a nervous contestant for her "audition," he leers for her to "seduce the audience. Let them know you want this." Doesn't take a genius to know where this is going.

Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert
Country music power couple Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert will perform "America the Beautiful" as part of Super Bowl XLVI's pregame show.
In the past, Ray Charles, Mary J. Blige and Marc Anthony, and Alicia Keys, have held the same honor.
Country music spitfire Miranda Lambert will make her acting debut on an upcoming episode of Law & Order: Special Victims Unit, TVGuide.com has learned exclusively.
Law & Order: SVU scoop: Harry Connick Jr. to play Benson's new love interest
Lambert, who is married to Blake Shelton, a coach on NBC's hit singing competition The Voice, will play an actress who claims to have been sexually assaulted by a reality show producer. Michael McKean (Laverne &Shirley, This Is Spinal Tap, Smallville) will play the alleged sleazebag in question. Given that Lambert's album and song titles include Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, Kerosene and "Gunpowder & Lead," he'd better watch his back...
Where have all the harsh judges gone? Following Simon Cowell's 9-year mean streak on American Idol, it's become increasingly difficult to find a tough-talking judge on singing competition shows like The X Factor and Idol.
However, The Voice's four coaches insist they're getting tougher this time around.
"This year, we are diving more into critiquing. ... You see us more in depth in the coaching process," Christina Aguilera told reporters at NBC's Winter TV preview Friday. "I think this year you're going to see it more. Last year we were all finding our...

Brad Paisley and Carrie Underwood
Sibling act The Band Perry topped 45th annual Country Music Awards on Wednesday, nabbing the wins for Single, Song and New Artist of the Year. Carrie Underwood and Brad Paisley returned to emcee the event.
Noticeably lacking in the ranks of The X Factor's contestants: budding country music stars. (Maybe they didn't want to risk another Scotty McCreery-style steamroller upstaging upstarts like "Astro.") And now, as the Top 11 square off, Fox's overblown singing contest (8/7c) faces its toughest competition to date: another musical extravaganza, ABC's three-hour broadcast of The 45th Annual CMA Awards (8/7c) from Nashville, with Carrie Underwood and Brad Paisley co-hosting for the fourth year in a row. (They'll perform their hit "Remind Me" during the show.)
