Keeping It Real

Debuts and season premieres of reality shows abound. Tonight, the Queer Eye guys take on the idiots, the Boston Red Sox. Tommy HIlfiger's The Cut debuts Thursday. But I doubt if any of these shows will be more entertaining than Beauty and the Geek.

Most of the critics have called it "sweet." That's my take, too. It plays with stereotypes without humiliating either the airheads or the socially challenged. It's not often I recommend a show on the WB, let alone one co-produced by Ashton Kutcher. But B&TG, on Wednesday night, is worth it for good, clean, dumb fun.
