In just its first four weeks, 2002 has given us a great deal for which we can be thankful. Those pesky Taliban forces have been defeated. More than ever, it seems like someone is going to pay for that Enron debacle. And, right up there with the greatest of our blessings, Angie Harmon once Sam Waterston's most beloved Law & Order sidekick, ball-buster Abbie Carmichael is back on television, appearing as an unsuspecting home-movie star in Lifetime's fact-based drama, Video Voyeur: The Susan Wilson Story (premiering Monday at 9 pm/ET).

"I got married and went on my honeymoon, and I wanted to give those events the amount of time they [deserve]," the bride of New York Giants heartthrob Jason Sehorn explains.
