There's a special seat in hell reserved for the person who "wrote" and conceived the "For the Right Reasons" video on "The Bachelorette" and forced us to listen to Des and her bevy of boys attempt to rap, but that nameless person (perhaps Souljah Boy, perhaps some deluded producer) will be left off the list because there were far too many reality stars for us to hate on this week.
Christian ("72 Hours") This charming misogynist immediately endeared himself to us by saying that his two female teammates would be nothing but a distraction to his horndog self, and by letting us know that all women are ignorant and then by reciting his known fact that men's brains are bigger. Too bad he couldn't use that giant brain to figure out how to light a fire.

With Valentine's Day around the corner, we take a moment to celebrate not necessarily the best relationships on TV, but the pairings who seem like they'd be really cool to spend some time with.
10. Haley and Dylan ("Modern Family") The recent episode with them as a little "family" taking care of the new baby and Lily was actually kind of charming... and if they've found a way to keep Lily (or Lucy) in check, we're all for the two of them together. Plus, we'd just sit around and brainstorm ideas for animal related T-shirts.
9. Lily and Marshall ("How I Met Your Mother") There's not a lot of positive things to say about "HIMYM" these days, but Lily and Marshall are still cool... even if they frequently forget that they have a child. We'd sit at the bar with them and stage intervention after intervention for Ted (and possibly the writers) until something finally stuck. Hell, it's not like they have anything better to do.

When "Scandal" started this past spring, we watched it but chalked it up as another guilty-pleasure show under the Shonda Rhimes umbrella. You know, like "Grey's Anatomy" but with politics. But somewhere toward the end of its first season, the show turned up the heat and captured our attention. Unfortunately, many people tuned out before it got juicy, or they didn't even spare it a glance before writing it off as another Shonda soap. For those people, here's why it's worth a second look.
Olivia Pope is actually an awful person Don't take that in a bad way. Our favorite shows are filled with antiheroes, and she's worthy of joining their ranks. We initially were blinded by Kerry Washington's insane beauty, but we went on to see her manipulate a president and an election, be complicit in a major cover-up involving one of her own staffers, ruin relationships to save herself, involve herself in an extramarital affair, and help some truly disgusting criminals. That highly touted white hat isn't looking so spotless now, is it?
