Celebrity Poker, Week 2

Last night's Celebrity Poker Showdown thankfully was miles better than last week's. Even at his most annoying, Howie Mandell was easier to take than the idiots on last week's Reality Show Stars edition. Plus, the power was more interesting as well, and for once the two best players at the table ended up facing off in heads-up action.

My biggest complaint about the show is that, when it gets down to the end, you pretty much know who's going to win each hand depending on how much time is left in the program. One of these weeks I'd like it if they'd throw us off-balance and have the game end 10 minutes before the end of the show, rather than right at the end.

Next week is Girls Night Out. I usually find Caroline Rhea very funny, so two hours of her and the rest of the ladies yukking it up should be fun.
