From the unseen 'Forgotten' to new 'Melrose Place' the unwatchable 'Brothers,' counting down the season's worst
#8 - 'TBL: The Beautiful Life'
"TBL: The Beautiful Life" (The CW) - Premieres Wednesday, Sept. 16 at 9 p.m.
"The Beautiful Life" will, if nothing else, be an extremely topically compatible lead-out to "America's Next Top Model." But "ANTM" has always been a glossy, fairy tale version of what it takes to become a model and, in its original pilot presentation. "TBL" also feels like it's tip-toing around the really juicy stuff that goes on behind-the-scenes in the modeling world, material that might be better suited to cable. Unfortunately, that cable show is the one I'd want to watch. Fortunately, there will be no shortage of pretty faces, even if some of them -- Sara Paxton and Mischa Barton, for example -- look weirdly similar and homogenous. There are no ugly or overweight people allowed on The CW. It's the law, y'all.
