EW's TV critic admits to his guilty pleasure

Do you have a guilty-pleasure show? One that you're ashamed to admit you not only watch, but rearrange your schedule to watch? -- Cynthia Schmidt
You readers really like to force out my most embarrassing habits, don't you? Okay, I admit it: I will TiVo Craig Kilborn's ''Late Late Show'' any time I see that he's booked a model or an actress whom I know Kilborn thinks is hot. Why? Because I find his infinite variations on winking come-ons and arrested-adolescent awe weirdly fascinating. Whether it's Carmen Electra or Marg Helgenberger, the guy does it over and over -- he operates on TV Viagra.

(Got a TV-related question for Ken? Post it here.)
