Congrats to Richmond for being the only seer who saw that bid for "Family Guy" coming! He ended up besting the rest of us when sizing up the laffers by a score of 8 to 7 out of 10. Two mistakes we all made: betting on "Desperate Housewives" and not foreseeing the landing of "Flight of the Conchords."

However, Richmond pulled only a score of 7 in the drama lineup, where the rest of us tied for first place with eight correct predix. Nonetheless, Richmond, Ausiello and Berman were the only gurus to predict success for "The Wire. " However, all three didn't hail the reign of "The Tudors." Only Beachum and I called that. Our worst calls: Four of us picked "Brothers & Sisters" and three had big hopes for "Big Love. "
