There has been a fierce debate raging in the hallways of Entertainment Weekly of late and that debate is this: Is Bachelor Ben a hottie or a nottie? So to settle this EW civil war once and for all, I posed that exact question to our two resident Bachelor experts — Kristen Baldwin and Jessica Shaw — on the latest edition of the InsideTV Podcast. Listen as they weigh in on that as well as other crucial issues of the new Bachelor season such as: How long will producers force Ben to keep kooky blogger Jenna around? Is contestant rapping ever a good idea? And who’s hungry for some cow balls?

But that’s not all. We also try to make sense of ABC’s newest “comedy” Work It. What the hell were they thinking?!? And could this be the worst scripted show of all-time?

But first let us know what you think: is Ben hot or not? And which “ladies” do you love and loathe on the new Bachelor? Where does Work It rank on the list of worst TV shows ever? The message boards are open for business!
