One Year Later: Corbin Bernsen on the Death of His Mom, Y&R's Jeanne Cooper

Jeanne Cooper, Corbin Bernsen

It was one year ago today that we said goodbye to the great Jeanne Cooper, longtime star of CBS's The Young and the Restless and arguably the most admired and beloved performer in the daytime drama business. In the final days of Cooper's life, her son, actor Corbin Bernsen, took to Facebook to keep us in the loop on her condition, delivering a startlingly emotional, no-holds-barred journal that Cooper's friends, co-stars and fans deeply appreciated. He's still carrying the torch. On June 19, Bernsen will return to his mom's soap as Father Todd Williams when tragedy, once again, strikes Genoa City. The actor spoke with TV Guide Magazine about this year of loss and grief.

Treat Williams Guests, Paul Guilfoyle Exits in the CSI Season Finale

CSI

Two small-town murders, connected yet separated by a quarter of a century, will bring Treat Williams to CSI: Crime Scene Investigation for a guest stint on Wednesday's season finale, "Dead in His Tracks." (10/9c on CBS). The former Everwood star plays security guard Sam Bishop, who was an investigator on the first murder back in 1989 but retired from cop work in frustration when he couldn't solve the case. Now Bishop has reappeared and D.B. Russell (Ted Danson) is leery of him — but suspicion soon turns to awe.

"It turns out Bishop was a man way ahead of his time — a proto-CSI," says Andrew Dettmann, who wrote the episode. "So much of our modern CSI work uses technology that wasn't available in Bishop's day, yet he was using his own inventions to solve crime — like a homemade recipe for detecting gunshot residue and a jerry-rigged camera and weather balloon that did aerial photography like the drones of today."

Exclusive: Will Lucy Get Busted at the General Hospital Nurses Ball?

General Hospital

You can always count on the General Hospital Nurses Ball to deliver three things — song, dance and powder-keg romance.

Will the swanky charity gala be yet another Lucy triumph — or a... read more

A Very Grimm Wedding

Bree Turner and Silas Weir Mitchell

The Montagues and the Capulets really didn't have it so bad — at least compared with the Blutbaden and the Fuchsbau. The season finale of NBC's Grimm (Friday, May 16, 9/8c) gathers everyone for the long-awaited wedding of Rosalee (Bree Turner) and Monroe (Silas Weir Mitchell), and all should go well — that is, if the guests don't tear one another to pieces!

General Hospital's Jane Elliot on Her (Shocking!) Daytime Emmy Nomination

Jane Elliot

The last time General Hospital's Jane Elliot (Tracy) won a Daytime Emmy was 1981 —the year Ronald Reagan moved into the White House. Isn't it about damn time she took home another? That said, Elliot's current nomination in the supporting actress category comes as quite a stunner, not because she isn't deserving, but because she has refused to submit herself for Emmy consideration for the past 20 years. What changed her mind? TV Guide Magazine gave Elliot a ring shortly after the noms were announced on Thursday morning to get the answer. But more important: Who's doing her roots for the awards now that Deidre Hall has a broken wrist? Tragedy!

Exclusive: Young and Restless Chief Jill Phelps on the Shocking Ian-Mariah Twist

Ray Wise, Camryn Grimes

In a wild one-two punch, CBS's The Young and the Restless has revealed that Fake Cassie, the scam artist played by Camryn Grimes, is in evil cahoots with Ian Ward, the creepy self-help guru played by Ray Wise. There's more! Fake Cassie, it turns out, is also Mariah, the much-discussed but never-seen ex-paramour of Tyler Michaelson (Redaric Williams). TV Guide Magazine spoke with executive producer Jill Farren Phelps to get the backstage dish on the two hot reveals and to find out where Mariah and Ian go from here. Is anyone safe?

TV Guide Magazine: Let's start with the nefarious Ian. Was it always the plan to connect him with Fake Cassie/Mariah?

Phelps: Not at all. Ray Wise was only supposed to be with us for a short story arc — 10 days — but we quickly realized what a gold mine he is. In order to keep him, it became necessary to connect Ian with someone else on the show, beyond Nikki and Dylan. Ray has been a wonderful fresh face in Genoa City. The second he hit the screen it was, "Jackpot!" We knew this immediately, of course, but his episodes hadn't aired yet. By the time we knew the audience was crazy about Ray, too, we'd already completed our original agreement with him.
