After it debuted in 2001, but before it was remade as a VH1-like celebreality show for D-listers, The Mole developed a cult following as “the smartest reality competition on TV,” which I guess is a little like being the best cross-country skiier in Fiji. But ABC has been pushing that angle with the re-remade, old-school, non-celebrity Mole, which returned last night. It’s still taking up space on my Tivo, but if any of you watched it, can it possibly be the same without Anderson Cooper?
