Cheryl Hines, Suburgatory
As Suburgatory's Dallas, Cheryl Hines is a big-haired, energy drink-chugging, slang-slinging suburban mom straight out of Bravo's Real Housewives. She just wants the best for her daughter, Dalia, and so she buys her too-short shorts and even tighter tops, all of which stuns city girl Tessa, their new neighbor who, with her single dad, George, just moved into town from Manhattan. It's through Tessa's horrified eyes — and uber snarky narration — that viewers are introduced to a version of suburbia ripe for the mocking, where pastel sweatsuits and frozen lattes are still the uniform and meal of choice for moms and every girl in high school is recovering from a nose job.
In the first episode of the ABC comedy (premiering Wednesday at 8:30/7:30c), Dallas offers to help ease Tessa (Jane Levy) into her new life by taking her to the mall where Dallas can help her out of her "lesbian boots" and into "a nice heterosexual dress shoe."

She may get her wish now that JJ is a full-fledged profiler since she returned to the BAU after a year in the State Department. Though JJ said way back in Season 2 that she had no plans to take extra classes to graduate from media liaison to profiler, Cook believes the promotion is "organic" and in line with JJ's story — not to mention her own story off-screen.

We know. With hundreds of numbers to choose from, the only appropriate reaction to such a list is: Only 10 best performances? Are there such things as "worst" Glee performances?
Our omissions are even more stunning, but know they were mighty tough calls. "Somebody to Love" or "Keep Holding On"? There's only room for one power pop ballad that moves you to tears. Kurt, we salute your inspired "Single Ladies" moves, but that song wasn't so much sung as it was danced to. "Proud Mary" was so good, but in terms of jaw-dropping performances from Artie, we had to go with another.
