Scottish Deerhound Hickory, 'The 135th Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show'For the first time in its 135 year history, the 'Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show' (Tue., 8PM on USA) awarded the coveted Best in Show to Hickory, a Scottish Deerhound.

Mario Lopez has both, and he's built that into a a career that keeps him resurfacing from one unrelated project to another without ever really showing any particular gifts for performing.

Now, he's going to host the Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show this February on USA -- because, when you think elite canine breeding competitions, you think Mario Lopez. (Somewhere in all this is a joke about what a dog Saved by the Bell was, but it's too much of a reach to go there.)
