A gifted, bipolar woman struggles to stay on her meds to function in her high-demand job and has a thing for jazz. If Black Box sounds like Homeland, Kelly Reilly doesn't know it.
"I've only seen a little bit of Homeland. I think I saw an episode of Season 2. I really can't compare them," Reilly tells TVGuide.com. "I know it's a great show, but I don't really know what they're doing there. I just don't want to do a generic bipolar person. Catherine is not [Carrie Mathison]."
Scoop! 39 must-see season-enders
No one will ever confuse the two. As ABC's omnipresent ads have already burned into your, er brain, Reilly's Dr. Catherine Black is a famed ...
Herb "Flight Time" Lang, Nate "Big Easy" Lofton
The third time around the world was not the charm for Flight Time and Big Easy. The Harlem Globetrotters got the boot on Sunday's Amazing Race All-Stars after having navigation trouble and switching Detours twice — but you can sort of blame one stubborn donkey for that. "It wouldn't move!" Big Easy tells TVGuide.com. "What can you do? At that point, we had to switch." They didn't have much luck at the donkey-building Detour though, unaware that they had to put a cart on top of it to get the green light, before they went back to the donkey-riding. How much time did they lose? Find out below. Plus: Get their thoughts on last week's wild finish.
No one died in the explosion, but Scandal went out with a huge bang Thursday.

Scandal finished Season 3 up 39 percent in viewership and 43 percent in the demo. The episode followed Grey's Anatomy (8.1 million, 2.5), which was down a tenth.

Aw, geez. Fargo had a modest debut Tuesday.
The well-received drama bowed to 2.65 million viewers, with 1.02 million in the 18-to-49 demographic. That's slightly below FX's most recent launch, The Bridge in July, which drew 3.04 million. Counting encores, Fargo pulled in 4.15 million and 1.79 million in the demo.

Carter, Tanya, and Alan Thicke
Robin Thicke might hate these blurred lines, but his father sure doesn't. (Not like that!)
Alan Thicke, the erstwhile patriarch Jason Seaver on Growing Pains, returns to TV on Wednesday on Unusually Thicke (10/9c, TVGN), his reality-sitcom hybrid that's real, but not really. The series follows Thicke, 67, and his self-professed modern family, 16-year-old son Carter from his second marriage, and his third wife Tanya, who is 28 years his junior. It's authentic in that every interaction and piece of dialogue on the show is unscripted, but not totally legit in that they semi-stage the situations the trio finds themselves in.

"It's real with a nudge and a wink," Thicke tells TVGuide.com. "It's part-reality, part-sitcom. I never was so presumptuous to think that we're interesting enough to be followed ...

John and Jessica had an unhappy Roman holiday on Sunday's Amazing Race All-Stars. After leaving the Detour first, the couple had taxi trouble and arrived last to the Roadblock at Rome's Spanish Steps. Fortunately, the Globetrotters and the Afghanimals were still there, and Jamal shared the answer with John and Flight Time, thinking there was still another team behind them. Unfortunately, there wasn't, and because John had to get a new postcard to write down the answer, the Season 22 alums were eliminated. "Yeah, I shouldn't have asked them [to tell us the answer]," Jessica tells TVGuide.com with a laugh. "I was a little surprised they did, but at the time none of us thought we were fighting for last."So why did they think Caroline and Jen were behind them? And is this elimination harder to swallow after their infamous Express Pass miscue? See what they say below.
