Tyra Banks begins cycle 16 -- and she's determined to keep things fresh. First, she wisely addresses fan fatigue by dressing up as contestant types from past seasons (cocky, rebel, etc.) and declares that she's had it with the same ol' same ol'. She also orders the newbies to strut a slippery runway while encased in a giant, rolling plastic ball! A for effort. Just one note to Banks: Stunts are fun, but Model really clicks when the girls transform themselves in those mesmerizing photo shoots. (CW, 8 P.M.)
