SurvivorBobby Jon said it was his "lifelong dream" to make it to jury on Survivor

. Well after tonight, when he made it to the merge, he is one step closer. I do find it a little hard to believe that it is his lifelong dream. I know that he is young, but the show hasn't been on for that long. I just feel a little bit bad for Amy, who got sent home, but perhaps it is Gary who should be worried since Amy promised that if she found out he was lying about his football past, she was going to "beat [him] down like a stepchild." Whatever that means. Between her and Bobby Jon, I am always more than a little bit confused by their comments, but I'll just go with it. At least before Yaxha had to vote someone off, they embraced the party spirit and even invited their Nakum "enemies" over for a pool party. That's gotta be a Survivor first I don't remember any unforced visits between tribes. Who knew it was even allowed? Oh, and did anyone else think that the mummy challenge seemed like something that was conceived after a drunken college party that involved lots of toilet tissue? But at least that was fun to watch, unlike the little fishies eating away at the open festering wounds on Bobby Jon's shoulder. Just a little bit too graphic for me, especially around dinnertime.

Smallville
Where to start? OK, I know. Princess Leia, editor-in-chief of the Daily Planet, who knew? Favorite-line honors go to the actor formerly known as William the Bloody: "Clark, there's no such thing as vampires." I know, we saw the line teased ad nauseum from the second last week's episode ended. I don't care. Loved it. What do you want? I'm easy. But TPTB did lay the Buffy shtick on a little thick didn't they? You know how Law & Order is known for being "ripped from the headlines"? Every once in a while Smallville gives us a 'sode that's ripped from other shows. You know what I'm talking about. Last year Lana got possessed by a 17th-century witch and then proceeded to turn Lois and Chloe into her buddy witches. It had Charmed written all over it, right down to the threesome's barely there Alyssa Milano get-ups. So this time we get a Tri-Psi sorority vampira named Buffy Sanders. Sanders. Not Summers. (Summers + Xander = Sanders, maybe?) Anyway, the not-Buffy Buffy and her gaggle o' Harmonies initiate Ms. Lang by turning her into Ms. Fang. This forces her BF to develop another alter ego Clark the Vampire Slayer. And how about Chloe's voiceover: shades of One Tree Hill anyone? I'm just glad she didn't go all Henry David Thoreau on us à la Chad Michael Murray. Some quick thoughts: The big costume party how deliciously dorky was Clark as Zorro? That Lex is cruel. Chloe lay near death because of this "rabieslike disease," yet he only flinched when he heard VampLana was sick, too. Boo. But yea! to the first couple of scenes featuring Lex and Milton. The two menaces to society have something in common: an unnatural fascination with Clark Kent. Oh, and we got a bit of  Brainiac badness. Finally.   Bettina Charles

The Apprentice
You know, I was starting to think this show was on permanent life support with little hope of recovery but folks, after weeks of humdrum, we've got ourselves a live one! Carolyn gets to sit in the Big Boardroom Chair to kick off the task, and I must say, she looks positively radiant when she's in charge. Unfortunately, Bill Rancic's still hanging around not being George, and Carolyn's impact on the proceedings is pretty much a nonissue. No matter, things are gonna get plenty ugly on their own. After a healthy shuffling of the team rosters, Capital Edge and Excel head off to their respective sporting-goods stores for an afternoon sales event. Notice, I said sales event. Long story short, Alla and her putt-putters on Capital Edge not only mop the floor with Josh and the Excel batting cage, they do it without knowing anything about sports. Wound? Let me introduce you to my good friend Salt. But wait, there's more! Trump comes back to town just in time for a little good old-fashioned reaming, and I think it goes without saying that he's not gonna stand for any whining from a group who actually caused a 34 percent drop in sales during the task. I mean, you pretty much have to try to screw up that badly, don't you? That, or have Omarosa on your team. Clearly, the Donald is displeased. And you know what that means four, count 'em, four finger-pointing sad sacks get the pink slip in one fell swoop. But amidst all that jaw-dropping, guffaw-inducing jolly good fun, the episode's finest moment comes down to the post-boardroom Walk of Shame in which Josh, Jennifer, Mark and James are forced to share a single cab into sequestered oblivion. Best. Uncomfortable. Silence. Ever.  Chana Shwadlenak

Everwood
It is truly a case of "Ask and you shall receive" on this show. I had been complaining that all we ever saw Dr. Dimples doing lately was hanging around Nina, and I wished that he'd get back to doing some medical stuff. Well lo and behold this week, he's doling out Botox like it's candy on Halloween and standing up to the always pushy Edna. Making her realize that she doesn't know everything and may not always be right was pretty impressive for the pretty boy. Also impressive, Bright's last minute decision not to dump Hannah. I know that he was hoping to be hookin' up with her, especially after his comment about her when she was stuck in the sleeping bag, "You look like a mermaid. I freakin' love mermaids." Yeah, there was some sexual connotation there, I could just feel it. But even though she's "not going to have premarital sex until she's married"  a nice redundant statement by Everwood's most astute resident  he saw the potential in the bookish gal. Don't know how long it will last, but I love Bright and I didn't want him to be such a jerk. He did deal quite well with the revelation that Reid wasn't gay, he just didn't understand why he worked out so much. Meanwhile Nina got in the zinger of the night when she and Andy got a chance to banter alone about her bet with Delia. "I've already introduced her to porn and vibrators. Gambling is the least of your worries." Recalling past episodes and having Andy and Nina talk like they used to? That's good times.  AC
