Hurray, the good guys won TAR! It's been a long time since "my" team won. (In fact, I'm not sure I ever rooted for a winner.) But the good doctors played smart, and they deserved to win.

However, I'm not so sure about the next race. Second-Chance TAR? A race of losers? Sure, it'll be fun to see some of those teams again, like the cowboys, but it makes me wonder if they're having trouble getting new participants.

I think most of the more enduring reality competition shows do some version of rounding up previous participants every few years, so I don't find this all that remarkable; I'd figured we'd be getting one soon. I'm only sorry that this (according to rumor) seems to be limited to teams since the last one), as my heart continues to belong to Danny-Oswald, Kevin-Drew, the Bowling Moms, Ken-Gerard, Jill-JohnVito, and others from the early seasons. I have trouble sometimes remembering ANYbody from recent years.

The Cowboys are an exception, and I'll be glad to see them again. And they seem guaranteed as participants as they did the verbal promo at the end. For the rest, we were shown moments of dozens of teams, who can't possibly all be participating. So it was mostly likely a general tease, with the official announcement of teams to come later.

Ha, nostalgia for the good old days of TAR? Well, I have to agree those teams you named were more interesting than what we've been getting lately, although I will remember the doctors. But maybe the reality shows do round-ups because they're having trouble getting applicants (or acceptable ones they'd feel safe putting on TV).

A different show...Dexter didn't find his soul mate after all. A pity, in a way, but certainly safer this way. He'll still live out the rest of his life knowing there's someone out there who could reveal his, umm, "hobby" to the rest of the world.

Dexter and his sister are splitting, rather Michael C. Hall and Jennifer Carpenter are. They met on the Dexter set, married, separated, and are now divorcing. Not exactly a comfortable working atmosphere.

Kyra Sedgwick is calling it quits. The next season of The Closer is its last.

I only just discovered that Hall was divorced from the wife I knew about, Amy Spanger. (A Broadway triple threat; I saw her as Bianca in Kiss Me Kate.) That happened in 2006, right around the time Dexter started.

Whoo, Jon, you're even more behind in your gossip than I am. The last time I read about Hall and Carpenter, they were dating.

Now that Jane's been voted out in Survivor, we'll see if she really did go back and set the camp on fire. I don't believe it either, Austin. But a few weeks ago I read a couple of things claiming to be what really happens instead of a prediction. One web site said Sash offered to pay off Jane's mortgage if she'd vote for him in the final vote. Another web site said Sash didn't receive a single final vote. Both or either or neither could be true, but what's interesting is that both sites put Sash in the final three. The finale is this Sunday.

Rita, Fabio is a crybaby.

Edited to add I'm sorry The Closer is coming to an end, but this way they'll get to wrap it up properly instead of letting the show fade away.

It's so hard to keep up, isn't it?

Yes, Fabio is a crybaby. He should go home to his good-looking mama. But you know something? I think he's going to win. At tribal, Jeff came right out and invited Dan and Fabio to join with Jane and force a tie, but they were too slow on the uptake, or something. So Jane is gone, and Dan will go next. How long will it take the three remaining alpha males to decide to get rid of Holly? But Chase and Sash have stabbed too many backs to be picked to win. That leaves Fabio.

Sounds reasonable to me.

Jane didn't start a fire, she put one out.

TV Guide is conducting a poll of who viewers think will win, and so far Fabio is leading the pack with 45% of the vote. Holly is second with 27%.

One thing we know for sure: It won't be Dan.
