The Bullseye

been thinking: ''Maybe you're the problem.''

 to grow a lil green patch
· Why is Desperate 
 Housewives wasting Dana Delany's 
 cunning Catherine the Great this season?

MISSES
· Survivor's Ace: such a devious, dastardly 
 rat that even Jeff Probst thinks the British 
 accent is a put-on

 yourself? You're in luck. Celebrity Rehab is back on the air!

NOT EVEN CLOSE
