|The ladies of Wisteria Lane play their last hand. ABC/Ron Tom|
I hadn't watched Housewives in quite a while but it was easy to pick right up last night even if you had only ever seen the original pilot. To its credit, the series had a lot more comedy moments than I can remember ever happening on the series that was the blueprint for this drama, Knots Landing. Eva Longoria, in particular, should segue straight to a sitcom.

UPDATE: Preliminary overnight ratings data shows that the Desperate Housewives finale won the night with 11.10 million ABC viewers, beating the lowest-rated-ever Survivor finale on CBS (10.22 million).
