BEAUTIES AND GEEKS BRING NEW YEARS CHEER! - From executive producers Ashton Kutcher and Jason Goldberg ("Punk'd"), this reality series/social experiment pairs eight beautiful women who lack book smarts with eight brilliant men who are socially inept to compete in a series of challenges that push them outside their comfort zones for a chance to win a quarter of a million dollars. This week, the beauties have to work the Dewey Decimal system, leaving one girl in tears, and the geeks are put on the spot in a very public way. In the second hour, the geeks must perform stand-up comedy at the Laugh Factory, where one gets laughs, while another gets awkward silence. When the beauties conduct a TV interview with an author, one girl shines while another gets chastised by her teammate for not studying. Two teams go to the elimination room, but only one team goes home. (#301/302).
