It’s been a good few weeks since we last saw the wives of Wisteria Lane – so of course ABC has scheduled the latest episode directly opposite this weekend’s Grammys!

Smart move guys – that’ll be great for the ratings! (Just like the last original episode which you placed opposite the Golden Globes and which subsequently hit series lows) And to think people get paid big bucks to make these kind of decisions…

Oh well, since we’re all going to be watching the show on DVR here’s what we can expect…

Gaby’s in therapy – but not taking it too seriously, Susan finds a kidney – but with strings attached, and Bree’s web of lies regarding Keith’s secret son grows more complicated…

Check out the sneak peek below – and again shake your head at ABC’s dunderhead decisions…

Things are heating up on Wisteria Lane…

After a shaky start to the Spring season (let’s never hear from Orson again – okay?) – Desperate Housewives was on good form last week. I’m especially enjoying the Gabrielle goes mad story line – and keen to see where that one takes us. And the return of troubled Zach was a nice sting in the tail!

So what’s in store this Sunday? Well Bob and Lee come into conflict with Rene… Bree meets an ex-girlfriend of Keith’s (hmm, that May-December romance is starting to get a bit tired) and Lynette is appalled when her mom prepares to marry a new beau – played by ex-Dallas star Larry Hagman.

Oh and look out for 24 villain Gregory Itzin (aka President Charles Logan) in a guest appearance… I wonder what he’s up to?

Man, was it just me or was last week Housewives a bit of a letdown?

After the terrific Fall finale it’s like the writers took a long holiday, leaving us with such gems as Keith and Orson having a food fight and Lynette turning into a grade A bitch over Tom’s one night stand from 20 YEARS AGO with Rene!

And sadly it seems that the dreadful Lynette storyline is set to continue given the clip below, as she stages a series of pranks to punish her husband, that are neither funny or deserved. Get over yourself woman – it was 2 decades ago – and besides, weren’t you the one getting cosy with Rick in the pizza parlor a few seasons back?

Thankfully the Susan kidney plot is getting more interesting with the arrival of her neurotic mother Sophie (Lesley Ann Warren). Meanwhile Bree tries to extend an olive branch to neighborhood outcast Beth (“the one with the bad hair” – how much do we love Rene!) and Gabrielle is becoming increasingly unhinged when it comes to her lost daughter Grace…

Check the teases out below…

The silly season is definitely here!

Hot on the heels of Glee’s truly appalling Christmas special, it’s ‘disaster’ time again on Wisteria Lane (I was wondering where that annual episode had gone!)

Over the year we’ve seen tornadoes, hostage crises and plane crashes hit the Lane – but for the final episode of the Fall season we have a RIOT to look forward to…

Yep, Desperate Housewives is definitely pushing it – check out the trailer below.

Am I the only one finding Paul Young’s bizarre revenge scheme increasingly nonsensical and implausible? As if Wisteria Lane could even gather enough people together to start a riot? And seeing Teri Hatcher‘s Susan crushed in the stampede is just pure comedy…
