Felicity Huffman chats. Which, of course, gives ABC an excuse to show off other actresses from ''Desperate Housewives.'' Felicity gets teary at the sight, tells ABC flack that ''you ruined my makeup.'' Fair enough. This show is ruining my evening.
The clip from ''Good Night, and Good Luck'' is messed up. David Strathairn is terse, opening up for a question about the smoking he has to do in the movie. I've been a Strathairn fan going back to his years in the John Sayles repetory company.

ABC is devoting a lot of promo time to ''Miracle Workers.''

Fashion overview -- only the few gowns involved are ones that we saw earlier in the preshow.
Eric Bana, asked what he hopes to see: ''I hope to see a lot of blood spilled.'' If they let the actors cut loose tonight, this might be fun after all.
