• Morning TV Round-Up: '30 Rock' & 'The Office'
The Fountainhead |
Dennis and his drunken wife and their adopted son Black Dennis were the witnesses along with Jack (who read from "The Fountainhead," because of course he did), and yet there was an obvious joy to it — and not just because Tony Bennett(*) was there to serenade the newlyweds.

• • Recap: ‘Survivor: South Pacific’
I liked this episode’s reminder -- just in case it hadn’t been reenforced over and over and over again -- that Ozzy, like Russell Hantz, is less a “Survivor” contestant than an Ayn Rand character, assuming that repeated proclamations about his own self-importance count as leadership, when they never have and never will.

• TV review: Season two of ‘Party Down’ on Starz
The humor in "Party Down" is character-driven, but also full of pop culture goodies, with references ranging from "Snow Crash" and Ayn Rand to "Big Bang Theory" and "The Mentalist" to "Eyes Wide Shut" and "Boys From Brazil."
