Thanks for the nightmares, CSI! And I'm not sure whether I'm hoping this "fannysmackin'" is real or just a figment of CSI's warped imagination. If it's real, I'm never visiting Las Vegas, but if they made it up, I'm worried that they just gave some bored Las Vegas teens a new form of "entertainment." I'm just not a fan of scary masks, contacts, etc. Every time they showed one of those kids, I freaked out, and that was from the safety of my own living room. As far Mr. Britney Spears is concerned, no surprise that he his Cole Tritt character was the ringleader of the parade of juvies. Considering that there wasn't a lot of acting involved the role was such a stretch, KFed did a nice job playing himself. It was a rough night for me after viewing this episode, but not as rough as our poor Greg Sanders. I applauded his efforts to help the man getting the beat down, and in doing so, saved his life, but I felt so scared for him when those scary-masked kids turned on him. I wasn't sure why he didn't just reverse his vehicle rather than ramming it into one of the kids (which eventually killed him). But, how terrifying was it when the rest of the kids smashed his windows, ripped him out of the car, and began beating the life out of him? These masked-offenders may have been kids, but these were some seriously messed up kids! If you missed last night's episode of CSI, you can watch it for free on CBS' innertube.

'Earl' Goes to the Cats
We all have our break-up rituals, so it's no surprise that our favorite TV characters do as well. Veronica Mars likes to lie on the floor and wallow in self pity while listening to The Virgin Suicides soundtrack, Lilly Rush buries herself in her work and reflects on what went wrong while lying in bed alone (again) at night, and My Name is Earl's Randy takes his boombox everywhere so he can listen to Cyndi Lauper's "Time After Time," well, time after time. In a hilarious montage of break-up clips from relationships past, we watched as Randy listened to the song in the rain, the hotel room he and Earl call home, the Crab Shack, and Earl and Joy's bed. Randy is nothing if not a creature of habit. So, when he began dating the cat lady and pretended to be someone who he's not once again, Earl got understandably worried. This time, things were different, though. Instead of continuing to be someone who he wasn't, Randy came clean and his new love accepted him for him. There was only one problem -- he didn't like her for her. She was treating him like a cat, so Randy decided to cut the leash (literally!). If you missed Randy's break-up montage, or just want to see it again, click on over to nbc.com to watch it now for free.
