Adamsteincrop_2 The “On the Lot” hopefuls had solo flights in this week’s round, which seemed to be a relief to the 18 remaining contestants after having to team up in groups of three.Monday’s episode did away with most of the let’s-watch-them-at-work bits and focused on the in-studio presentation of contestants’ personal stories their one-minute comedy shorts. Garry Marshall was back as a judge (and comic relief) alongside Carrie

Fisher and guest-jurist D.J. Caruso, helmer of the recent Shia LaBeouf hit “Disturbia.” And for reasons known only to the god of TV reality-show hosts, Adrianna Costa has replaced Chelsea Handler as “Lot’s” new host. The screenings get off to a good start with Adam Stein’s “Dance Man,” whose short earns six thumbs-up from the panel. “We should be sucking up to this guy,” Caruso observes.
