Show creators called Blair Waldorf (Leighton Meester) and Chuck Bass (Ed Westwick) the king and queen at the center of the Gossip Girl chess game while Marc St. James (Michael Urie) and Amanda Tanen (Becki Newton) had Betty Suarez (America Ferrera) rolling her eyes and Ugly Betty audiences LOL-ing at home.
On the dramatic front, Audrina Patridge brought the most drama to The Hills — whether it was feuding with Lo, getting back together with Justin Bobby or moving out of Lauren Conrad‘s house — and Dr. Erica Hahn’s (Brooke Smith) romance with Dr. Callie Torres (Sara Ramirez) and her sudden departure was all anyone watching Grey’s Anatomy could talk about.
Then there are the pitch perfect performances of Jean Smart as Samantha Who?‘s Regina Newly and Dana Delaney as Wisteria Lane’s most mysterious neighbor, Katherine Mayfair, on Desperate Housewives.
