Hi, I'm Troy McClure, and you might remember me from such educational films as. . . Sorry couldn't help myself. The Simpsons are on the big screen as I write this, and obviously that's gotten to my head.

It's big, it's back, and the results are—well, pretty similar to last year's RPTV Face Off, actually. What was surprising, though, was how much closer the competitors were in this year's quasi-annual Face Off compared with last year's.
