Nip/Tuck Season 6 ~Series' Final 3 Episodes: Christian Troy II Episode 6.17 , Edith And Walter Krieger Episode 6.18, Season/Series Finale Episode 6.19

As the saying goes, "all good things must come to an end", and over the next 3 weeks, Nip/Tuck is airing it's final 3 episodes. But as the series concludes, FX' plastic surgeon short-timers are not short changing their fans. Episode 6.17 Christian Troy II has Robert Davi as Doctor Christian Troy's biological father. Joan Rivers makes a return cameo appearance, as do Donna Mills, and Joan Van Ark. Doctor Liz Cruz has a new love interest, a pharmaceutical sales woman who's separated from her husband. Christian and Sean again choose unorthodox methods to bring in more patients to McNamara/Troy.

In episode 6.18 Edith and Walter Krieger, Julia McNamara visits Sean and Christian. As he is about to marry someone else, a past love of Matt's returns. Clips from the ep have not been revealed, but based on Ryan Murphy's previous hints, i'm guessing the returning love will be Famke Janssen's Ava.

For Nip/Tuck episode 6.19, the series/season finale, airing March 3, 2010, the title has not been announced, but it will be the show's 100th episode.

Nip/Tuck creator Ryan Murphy is the scripter for all 3 final episodes.

Ru Paul's Drag Race Season 2 Episodes 1 and 2 On LOGO

"Anybody who steps out of the house with a pair of high heels and a wig is my hero" ~ Ru Paul

RuPaul's Drag Race On LOGO

Sewing competitions. Working the catwalk. Haute couture. Celebrity judges. 'Nuh ut uh---we're not talking Heidi and Tim, no disrespect to their gig. The show in the spotlight is RuPaul's Drag Race. Being glamorous is hard. Even more so when you're a man. These girls not only make it work, per RuPaul's admonishment, they work hard not to F#*@k it up. The grand prize is $25,000.00. There are also modeling contracts, and a lifetime supply of swag from sponsor Nyx cosmetics.

12 contestants have been culled from a nation-wide search. Their first challenge is a photo shoot that pays homage to Ru's fav film, Gone With The Wind. In haute couture and an Isadora Duncan length silk scarf, they straddle a cannon accompanied by 2 beefcake models dressed in civil war costume. The trick here is there's a fan that's set at near hurricane level. It takes a hellatious amount of glue, bobby pins and poise to make love to the camera in those conditions. Next up ala Miss Scarlet, a window treatment is to be made into a garment. In episode 2, pole dancing is the task. Celeb judges Kathy Griffin, Kim Coles, and Dita Von Teese are fun fab additions. There are also behind the scenes eps revealing claws out catfights and the pre-drag glam transformations. It's not only about lipstick and lashes. We learn about deeper things the contestants are dealing with. Some have children they are missing while being in the competion. Others have terminally ill parents, or have recently lost a parent to illness.

RuPaul's Drag Race airs on LOGO, Monday nights at 9:00pm. If you're like me, and you can't drag yourself away from Kiefer's 24 which airs on the same day and time on FOX, no worries. LOGO has encore showings on Tuesday afternoons from 3:00pm-6:00pm and there are also full eps available on the LOGO website.
