Week in Review: Colbert Ice Cream, ’24’ Torture


Clockwise from top left:

The Grammys: Timberlake films himself and the broadcast is telecast on TV. Why did this trend ever start?

The Simpsons: Bart makes out with an older woman.

Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip: Gets the axe. Later episodes to be shown “at a date not yet determined.”

Ben and Jerry’s: Name an ice cream after Stephen Colbert. Stephen Colbert’s Americone Dream vanilla ice cream with fudge-covered waffle pieces and caramel.

Clockwise from top left:

Beauty & the Geek: The finale. Harvard student Scooter and a Playboy Playmate Megan won over bitchy Cecille and faux-geek Nate.

The O.C.: With the earthquake over, Taylor (pictured) and Summer protect themselves from looters with a flare gun, while Julie and Kaitlin get trapped in the ice cream store. The final episode can’t come quick enough.

24: The producers will be cutting back on the torture scenes, but only because they want to.

Grey’s Anatomy: Meredith Grey drowns, goes blue, and croaks. Will magically be brought back to life next week.
