Kristin Cavallari, Capt. Phil Harris
What is reality? This is a question best posed by philosophers and the stoner kids at your high school. But also by producers of reality shows, who love to toy with our expectations. This week, we look at a few scripted shows that filled us with real emotions. And, more amazingly, reality shows that did the same. (Not that all these emotions were good: Looking at you, Real Housewives of New Jersey.) Welcome to Top Moments, Reeling in Reality Edition.
13. Worst Decision: On Entourage, an obviously concussed Vince unilaterally decides to cut off his signature curly locks. (You can imagine Keri Russell sitting at home and saying with a sigh: "They never learn.") We hope he's not...
The drama kicks off its second season with all the intrigue and clever criminal schemes fans have come to expect. In the season opener, Peter and Neal try to protect New York's banks from a sophisticated thief known as the Architect, a crook who has successfully knocked off banks in several other cities. The duo's best-laid plans don't get off to a great start, however, when bank alarms across the city sound at the same time.

When last we saw Tommy Gavin, he was bleeding out after Teddy shot him. You might not be surprised to learn that he survived, but it was touch-and-go, as you'll discover in tonight's Season 6 premiere. In fact, Tommy was clinically dead long enough to see his afterlife, and you can imagine where he was heading. Things on Earth aren't much better. For starters, no one will let him drink. And the shooting put the firehouse in the spotlight, and not in a good way. Incidentally, there'll be a Season 7 next year, with the series ending 10 years after 9/11.

We're no xenophobes, but television had us feeling rather patriotic this week. Treme made us bow our heads for the Louisiana bayou. Top Chef aimed at improving our kids' school lunches. American John Isner triumphed in a record-breaking Wimbledon match. Jimmy Kimmel made lemonade out of a lemon-y electrical problem. And the U.S. World Cup team's last-minute victory had us waving a giant foam finger that says "We're No. 1." — tastefully, of course. Welcome to Top Moments: American Ingenuity Edition.
Star and executive producer Jada Pinkett Smith's character-driven hospital drama opens its second season. This new nurse verse begins with a harsh reality: Richmond Trinity goes out of business completely, prompting several staff members to land employment at a decaying hospital set in a run-down neighborhood. There, series protagonist Christina Hawthorne promptly clashes with the nursing supervisor. And the change is a bitter pill to swallow for Tom as well: He must relinquish his administrative post.

There's no better way to work off all that Memorial Day weekend BBQ than lounging on the couch watching endless hours of TV. (Exercise is overrated.) Check out our marathon roundup for the unofficial start of summer after the jump.
