  • Ari Bonias, 21, waiter; Staella Gianakakos, 23, restaurant manager (best friends)
In other reality news, I actually really liked the The Next Great American Band on Fox. Although the show doesn't have an original bone in it's body, the bands were very good. Two groups really stood out, The Clark Brothers and Franklin Bridge. And if this show were a true *reality* show, music execs would take the unbelievable drummer and bassist from Bridge and pair them with the Clarks. I would love to see that combo!

Unfortunately a few of my favorites (Zombie Bazooka Patrol) did not make the cut. Check out their ultra catchy tune "Better off Undead" on their MySpace page. It's a hit.
