America’s Next Top Model
CW, Feb. 20, 8 p.m. ET

Launching its 10th season, Tyra Banks‘s Top Model does not disappoint. A winningly silly free-for-all of catfights, fashion and camp, it makes Project Runway look like an academic conference. But there are a couple of significant developments: Twiggy is gone from the judges’ panel. Replacing her, model Paulina Porizkova sweeps in imperiously and makes merciless assessments of the girls. (She thaws later.) And one contestant, Fatima, has a heartbreaking history: As a child in Somalia, she was genitally mutilated. However, she’s as high-handed a diva as any of ’em.
