KEEP IT CLEAN KEEP IT CLEAN: As someone who's had his own grim experiences with addictive behavior, I get that the addict's life is sordid, repetitive and crammed with personal shame. That doesn't excuse A&E's new intervention drama, The Cleaner, from being so tedious, though. Watching the pilot ep, the only truly interesting moments for me came from watching Gil Bellows' grumpy interventionist bodybuilder and going, "That's the same guy from Ally McBeal?" And then they had to kill the character off in the last ten minutes . . .
