Review: Sarah Michelle Gellar Makes Her TV Comeback in the Risky 'Ringer'

Facts must be faced: 'Ringer,' Sarah Michelle Gellar's new identity-switcheroo drama, is a little bit silly.

'Ringer' (9PM ET Tuesday, the CW) isn't terrible. But it's less than it could be, and it has yet to present viewers with compelling reasons for putting up with its contrivances.
