Tonight, we assume you are being good Americans and going out on the town to spend, therefore fortifying our flagging economy. However, if you are one of those recluses who spend your Friday night at home getting stoned and watching Animal Planet — and by "Animal Planet," we mean "reruns of Mad Money," we encourage you to flip the Tivo to NBC, for the Miss USA Pageant. Why? Well, because you're kind of creepy. But also: Because Shawne Merriman is one of the judges!.
No, really: Merriman will be sitting on the dais with:
"'Days of Our Lives' star Kristian Alfonso, Olympic swimmer Amanda Beard, Project Runway winner Christian Siriano, former *NSYNC member Joey Fatone, 'activist' Heather Mills and comedian Rob Schneider.
Remind us again why steroids are bad for you? We don't see Rafael Palmeiro on that panel ... but we suspect he'll stop by, anyway.
