CURB YOUR ENTHUSIASM on HBO
Helloooo, Jerry. And George, Elaine, and Kramer. As if season 7 weren't already a riot, we're loving Curb's Seinfeld-reunion story line like it's a bowl of mulligatawny soup. Pretty good idea, Larry. Pretty, pretty good.

THE AMAZING RACE on CBS
The reality stalwart's 15th season stars deceitful poker players, gay brothers, a former Miss America, and two jocular Harlem Globetrotters (that's right, they trot the globe trying to win). It doesn't take the Scooby-Doo gang to figure out why this truly amazing competition has picked up a whopping seven Emmys.

HILARY DUFF on Gossip Girl
Duff scores high marks as Olivia, a film star who meets Dan (Penn Badgley) when she enrolls at NYU seeking a ''normal'' life. (Similarities to Emma Watson's recent real-life foray into academia are surely coincidental.)

ASSASSINATION OF A HIGH SCHOOL PRESIDENT on DVD
A Sundance favorite about two teenagers (Mischa Barton and Reece Thompson) investigating stolen SAT exams, this racy comedy got lost in limbo thanks to a bankrupt distributor. A debut on disc saves the day.

CHRIS COLFER on Glee
''The hilarious Chris Colfer playing Kurt ('Auditioning for the role of Kicker') Hummel is a Must. He can audition for anything he wants in my book, as long as he keeps it fierce, outrageous, and inspirational because I want Kurt to keep doing it his way.'' —K.R.

KALEY CUOCO on The Big Bang Theory
''Sure, Jim Parsons and the rest of the socially-challenged nerd squad are funny and heartfelt, but it's Cuoco as struggling actress Penny who brings out the show's unique dynamics. Whether flirting with Leonard or sparring with Sheldon, she elevates the show to the best comedy on TV.'' —Clint

SMALLVILLE on The CW
''Clark Kent is literally transforming into Superman before our very eyes this season! Somehow The CW saw fit to give Melrose 2.0 priority in this fall's schedule, and place one of their strongest shows on a Friday night all by its lonesome? The injustice!'' —Jordan
