US RATING: **

AIR DATE WEDNESDAY 3/10

Tyra Banks and her 14th beauty search stumble out of the gate with a 90-minute opener that's pretty bargain basement (first guest "star": Perez Hilton). The contenders have allure, but their initial task -- which tries to relate catwalking to Internet social networking à la MySpace -- is clunky and lame. The silly sniping isn't fun either. What does click? The girls must pose as their own favorite supermodels! (CW, 8 P.M.)
