Hey, it’s catch-up and keep-up time. With finales having started and competition shows building up to season-ending climaxes, TV is full of rich and entertaining moments, and this past week offered more than five examples. Nonetheless, we whittled our choices down to a final five that you should definitely see if you’re trying to stay on top of the latest on the tube.

1. American Idol: Thursday’s results show provides the season’s biggest shock – maybe the most surprising elimination in the show’s 10 seasons.

2. The Celebrity Apprentice: Starr was booted, NeNe quit, and LaToya became the first contestant ever bid adieu for a second time. Is this television? Or a slick of real world office life?

3. Modern Family: Phil and Claire traded roles, and he turned into Mommie Dearest. The best part was when Phil taped the laptops shut with duct tape.

4. The Office: Dwight’s dream finally comes true: He’s appointed manager of the Dunder Mifflin branch. Then it quickly turns into a nightmare.
