“On the Lot” sees some sparks fly in its fourth week as the ever-cocky Marty Martin and judge Carrie Fisher scrap a bit as five more of the remaining 15 contestants screen their three-minute wonders for judges Fisher, Garry Marshall and this week’s guest, David “The Devil Wears Prada” Frankel.
By the end of this week’s live seg, the group has slimmed down to 14 as Trever James, whose short “Teri” screened last week, is sent packing. Don’t ask me why, but “America,” as “Lot” host Adrianna Costa is fond of saying, spared Hilary Graham, who delivered the un-funny “How I Met the Finkelsteins” short, but threw over James who delivered the best of last week’s batch, IMHO. Worse, Trever and Hilary (pictured above) had to spend all of this week’s episode sitting off to the side in director’s chairs while Costa plucked this week’s contenders from the larger group. Memo to Hilary: Don’t wear miniskirts/minidresses on show taping days.
