10. "Secret Talents of the Stars," CBS. Part of a rash of celebrity talent shows that aired because of the writers' strike, this series will be remembered, if at all, for tying the record for the lowest number of episodes broadcast by a network series (one) and for the painful moment when judge Gavin Polone followed a country-music performance by the out and proud George Takei with a Brokeback Mountain joke. Guess comedy isn't one of Polone’s secret talents. Oh, and don't forget when Olympic skater Sasha Cohen, above, practiced her contortionism. Ouch.
