Prime Pick


It's official: "Make Me a Supermodel" (finale airs at 10 p.m. EDT on Bravo) has supplanted "America's Next Top Model" (8 p.m. Wednesdays on the CW) at the top of the mannequin-search heap. Why? 1) "MMAS" has women and men, thereby sidestepping the endless giggling and repetitive catfights of "ANTM"; 2) "MMAS" features new, creative ways of torturing its models, primarily by making them get naked and make out with each other, which makes it a little bit like an enforced version of "Paradise Hotel 2," except with skinnier, less drunken hotties; and 3) Tyson Beckford is annoying, but he's about 50 million times less chafing than that bossy, self-indulgent Medusa-headed Tyra Banks. Here's hoping that on tonight's finale, either mumbling Southern girl Holly or movie-star-hot prison guard Ben takes home the big prize.



"Survivor: Micronesia" is back at 8 p.m. EDT on CBS, while the finale of sitcom "Miss Guided" airs at 8 and 8:30 p.m. on ABC and the Canadian drama "Terminal City" airs at 9 p.m. on Sundance. The doc series "Unnatural Causes: Is Inequality Making Us Sick?" looks at infant mortality rates (10 p.m. on PBS) while the dance reality competition "Step It Up & Dance" premieres at 11 p.m. on Bravo.
