Our top moments of the week:

13. Biggest Disappointment: In the midst of a lackluster final season, Dexter reveals that the identity of the season-long villain, The Brain Surgeon, is Vogel's son ... whom no one cares about. This is almost as bad as when we learned that Edward James Olmos was a figment of Colin Hanks' imagination in Season 6. Anticlimactic much?

12. Sauciest Critique: Modern Family star Jesse Tyler Ferguson never fails to brighten the So You Think You Can Dance judges' panel with his cheeky wit and genuine fanboy fawning. In his latest visit, he vows to... read more

11. Best Chemistry Lesson: When Tyra Banks stops by Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, she gives Jimmy Fallon a lesson about the chemistry between a man and a woman who are posing together. After they each inhale a handful of mints, Banks basically starts grinding up on the very married Fallon and yelling words at him like "squeeze" and "breathe." She makes it worse by shoving her butt into his crotch and making him grab her neck. "My wife is gonna kill me," Fallon says afterwards.

10. Weirdest Critique: Sure, Anna Kendrick is an Oscar-nominated actress and, thanks to Pitch Perfect, a celebrated singer, but what.... read more
