The password is “laughter.”
Now this is what I call summer viewing! “So You Think You Can Dance” started with a bang last night, check out my full recap later today. Next it was “Celebrity Circus” which was also unexpectedly entertaining. Finally, a winner was chosen on “Top Chef” and it was Stephanie! She’s the first woman to win on the show, so that’s doubly cool.
Speaking of doubly cool, look what’s on tonight.
Tonight on TV
FOX could take it with a new “Are You Smarter Than a Fifth Grader” followed by the first “So You Think You Can Dance” results show (and seriously, they need to shorten the names of their shows.)

CBS starts with “Million Dollar Password,” goes to a “CSI” rerun, but ends with a new “Swingtown.”
