    Blending action and racing, the game pits you against a collection of stunt drivers and racers in a reality TV competition. The plot of the game, though, is fairly irrelevant. The fun lies in driving at insane speeds and wreaking havoc.

    Cougar

    This fall ABC is launching a new show with Courtney Cox called "Cougar Town." Courtney was one of my favorite "Friends" stars and cougars are certainly a hot cultural phenomenon. Could cougars be five minutes ago by the time the show premieres? Perhaps. But maybe ABC has a hit on its hands. New TV shows are always a roll of the dice. And so is Johnson & Johnson's journey into "Cougar Town."

  • Intuitive Surgical's Marketing Intuition Friday, 15 May 2009 | 2:27 PM ET

    Product placement in movies and TV shows has become commonplace. Usually it's a casual shot that blends into the scenery, sometimes it's a little more obvious...and occasionally it hits you in the face. That was the case last night when I was being a couch potato watching the season finale of ABC's "Grey's Anatomy" on TiVo last night.
