ABC brought back its Thursday lineup a week ago, but it's tonight that two of the network's shows — Ugly Betty and Grey's Anatomy — are really making their presence felt. Both have great guest stars lined up to build some momentum as we roll toward the all-too-soon season finales.
First up, Ugly Betty hosts Project Runway's famously faux-hawked, famously satired fourth-season winner, Christian Siriano. The designer appears as himself, a hot new designer whom the Mode staff is trying to woo for a fashion spread — complete with designs that ProjRun fans will likely recognize from his collection. Runway judge Nina Garcia will appear as well.
But the one I'm really excited for is the return of Kate Walsh as Addison on Grey's. I thought Addie lost most of her sparkle, charm, and cojones when she moved down the West Coast to that Private Practice of hers, and I hope that her return to Seattle Grace puts her kickass side back in the spotlight. (Hey, maybe the writers will remember how to do that, and then apply it to PP when it returns in the Fall.) Oh yeah, and Elizabeth Reaser (Rebecca/Jane Doe/Ava) is back to deliver some news to Alex — but I'm too fixated on what fun Addison antics will ensue to give that much thought.
