I'LL SEE YOUR "O.C." AND RAISE YOU "90210": Even if you won't have reruns of "The O.C." to tide you over this summer, at least you have Celebrity Poker Showdown 2. Sadly, no all "West Wing" table this time, and (as always), a few inexplicable selections (Mena Suvari, both of the Masterson brothers, and professional tennis player James Blake), but some of the selections for players (Lauren Graham, Andy Richter, Jon Favreau, Matthew Perry, Sara Rue) are top-notch.
Of course, nothing will top next week's "Jeopardy Power Players" tournament, which will finally answer the question that's been burning in my mind--"Where in the world is Ashleigh Banfield? And is she smarter than Ari Fleischer?" (My guesses for who wins big--Anderson Cooper and Al Franken.)
