Lisa de Moraes on David Caruso - part 2

Lisa De Moraes has written "The TV Column" for The Post since 1998. She served as the TV editor for the entertainment industry trade publication the "Hollywood Reporter" for almost a decade. Her comments - especially on David Caruso - are intelligent, witty and a pleasure to read....
Meerkats and David Caruso: Thank you for the spoiler on "Meerkat Manor" -- ... But as to urban crime, do you have an interpretation on that season-ender of "CSI: Miami"? Is he dead or what? What does this mean for the planned David Caruso Day?
Lisa de Moraes: First time I think anyone ever has thanked me for a spoiler, but I know what you mean. I have trouble watching this show -- and several others on Animal Planet -- because I can't deal with the death. Speaking of death, of course Caruso's character can't be dead because the show would unravel without him. Who would we mock? Can't wait to see how they reconcile this next season. Shower scene?
If Caruso really were dead: We'd know that he has a new job, kinda like we knew Adriana would get killed in "The Sopranos" because she was going to co-star in "Joey
Shower Scene: I could deal with the idea of the whole season being a dream ala "Dallas," but then we'd have to see Caruso naked. My eyes, my eyes!
Lisa de Moraes: Maybe he could be behind frosted glass? Please?
Seeing Caruso Naked: The trick is simple: Just don't look at him until immediately after you deliver a witty/ironic/threatening quip. It vaccinates you against the horror.
Lisa de Moraes: And wear garlic...

Quote of the day - Well, all this sucks, but it doesn't suck half as bad as David Caruso from CSI: Miami (
