After NBC debuted their post-writers' strike comedy lineup last Thursday, it was ABC's turn to bring out all new episodes of their top shows--Ugly Betty, Grey's Anatomy and Lost.
The highlights of the night:
Ugly Betty• Echoing Sixteen Candles, Betty's birthday is overlooked by everyone, including her accountant boyfriend Henry.
• Renee uses Chocalitinis to ply evil Wilhelmina's assistant Marc (Michael Urie) for information, while he steals her psychiatric drugs in return.
Grey's Anatomy• The residents--Mer, Izzie, Cristina and Alex-- battle it out for bragging rights in a fierce surgical contest.
• While Mer still pines for Der and Der is taking it slow with nurse Rose, nurse Rose blurts out to Lexie that she loves McDreamy--er, that was fast!
Lost • A mysterious phone call saying "14-J" sends Locke and Sawyer scurrying for cover, as war breaks out in the way of killer gunmen.
• The Smoke Monster is back and it's angry! Seemingly ordered by Ben to avenge the death of his daughter (who got offed by the gunmen), the tunnel of black-and-gray cinders plows down all the bad guys while Ben pays his final respects to his murdered daughter. --Nicholas White
