Your road map to this week's entertainment-themed episode:
00:40 Dancing with the Stars--Last week, we hoped we wouldn't see Julianne's top-knot again. This week, all of Julianne was missing, and we got Nick Carter as a guest judge—as well as a shocking! elimination! (Terri wasn't too shocked.)
13:27 The West Wing--"Manchester Part 2" brings the funny, which we sorely needed. Also needed was the apology the staff finally got, but that parting shot as he went to make his speech? Not so much.
21:21 Challenge Round--Terri challenged Catherine to watch the movie Juno, partly so we could see TWW's Allison Janney playing Juno's stepmom. As ever, she is delightful, and so is this movie. For next week, Catherine challenged Terri to watch the Disney XD cartoon Phineas & Ferb (available on Netflix, Disney XD, and cable on demand). She suggests these 10-minute episodes from the first season: Lawn Gnome Beach Party of Terror (2), Flop Starz (3), Tree to Get Ready (12), It's About Time (21), and Dude, We're Getting the Band Back Together! (22).
