This summer's first fizzy TV pleasure draws to a close tonight, as "The Starter Wife" airs its sixth and final episode. I've been surprised at how much I've enjoyed getting to know Molly, Joan, Rodney and the rest of the Malibu crowd, and I'm curious to see how it all wraps up tonight (hopefully not with Molly in the arms of the judgmental, cheesy, annoying Sam, but we'll see). While not every episode of this series has been a winner, it's had some great one-liners, some funny self-referential Hollywood references, and a ton of great moments from Debra Messing, who's shown charm and range in a role that could have been two-dimensional.
After "The Starter Wife," USA will show the premiere of "Burn Notice," a show about an exposed spy (Jeffrey Donovan) trying to discover who sold him out. It seems a bit odd to pair a spy thriller with "The Starter Wife," but the show looks like it could be funny — and hey, Bruce Campbell's along for the ride as a former military intelligence officer, which should get the series some cult fans, at least.
