America's Next Top Model
8/7c CW
Who will be the first petite model to be named America's Next Top Model? Will it be Kentucky country girl Laura or Colorado cutie Nicole? It could go either way, and the final runway challenge may just be the deciding factor in who wins the coveted title. Or it could be decided when the two finalists shoot their CoverGirl commercial. Laura would seem to be at a disadvantage with her thick hillbilly accent, but poor speech hasn't derailed some past winners. One thing is for certain: They both take stunning photos. — Tim Holland

And if Norton isn't enough star power, Elizabeth Banks guest stars as an old friend of Mitchell and Cameron's who's still stuck in their partying ways of the past. — Joe Friedrich

Making things even tougher for Mac is the fact that Flack goes AWOL during the investigation. — Tim Holland
