It's a Pitch Perfect reunion for Ground Floor's Skylar Astin when his costar from last year's hit movie — and real-life girlfriend — Anna Camp guests on the Dec. 26 episode of his new TBS comedy.

After a season of trying to prevent the inevitable, Bill's prophecy came true on Sunday's True Blood — but the outcome wasn't quite what viewers expected.

True Blood left fans with their jaws dropped last Sunday as progeny met maker in a fight to the death. Kristin Bauer van Straten was on hand at Saturday's Comic-Con panel to talk about Pam's role in the death match, but Alexander Skarsgard was not. Before you freak out about what that means, know that upcoming footage screened at the beginning of the panel did include Skarsgard, which should give Eric fans some hope.

11. Keep It Moving Award: On The Real Housewives of New Jersey, Rosie sits down to address her cousin Teresa's most recent blowout with her brother, Joe. It's pretty much your standing Bravo-produced heart-to-heart, complete with alcohol, yelling and some tears. However, just as...
Michael McMillian and Anna Camp
Holier-than-thou horndog Sarah Newlin (Anna Camp) was last seen on HBO's True Blood as a minister's cheating Mrs. back in 2009. When the crazed character reappears in Bon Temps on June 30, we'll learn "she's written a best-selling book about what it means to be a Christian fighting vampires," Camp says. "And she's working her way into politics, because she's craving more power and fame."
That ain't all she's craving.

Can't wait for the final season of Dexter! Do you have any Deb-and-Dexter scoop? — Claire
NATALIE: As if Dexter hasn't made Deb's life complicated enough, he'll do something in the season premiere that he believes to be noble, but will lead Deb to repeat a past mistake — and that's very bad. As a result, don't be surprised when these close siblings become adversaries.
Deeks and Kensi: What happens after the kiss on NCIS: Los Angeles? — Moni, via Twitter
ADAM: Well, you're assuming that Deeks makes it out of Sidorov's torture trap alive....
It's only natural for AMC's Mad Men to be consumed with thoughts of mortality as it heads further into the turbulent late '60s in its sixth and reportedly next-to-last season of existence. A year ago, the central set piece in the premiere was a surprise birthday party. This time, it's a similarly eventful wake. And that's not the only way in which Sunday's two-hour opener (9/8c), written by series creator Matthew Weiner, drives the death-comes-to-us-all theme home with such sledgehammer relentlessness and obviousness that for the first time, I began to think maybe it is time for this beautifully crafted series to start thinking about giving up the ghost. There's no denying the importance of a show that manages to win four well-deserved best-drama Emmys in its first four times at bat — I didn't hesitate to include Mad Men among the Top 10 in a recent "60 Greatest Dramas of All Time" package in TV Guide Magazine. But does it have to be this self-important?
The Mindy Project
The cast changes at The Mindy Project continue.
Recurring star Ike Barinholtz — who plays Morgan and also writes for the freshman Fox sitcom — has been promoted to a series regular, star, creator and executive producer Mindy Kaling revealed at Fox's winter TV previews Tuesday.
The promotion is the most recent of many for The Mindy Project. Stephen Tobolwsky exited in December, Amanda Setton will also soon be departing, and...
Nat Faxon and Dakota Johnson
In TV comedy, there's a fine line between the delightfully quirky and the annoyingly irksome, and Fox's Tuesday night lineup — now home to four half-hour sitcoms, forcing Glee's move to Thursdays — tap-dances around and over that line with reckless abandon. My advice: surrender and enjoy.
Stephen Tobolowsky, Mindy Kaling
Glee's Stephen Tobolowsky, whose credits also include Heroes and Californication, is joining Fox's The Mindy Project as the head of Mindy Kaling's medical practice, while Richard Schiff, who appears in the pilot, won't continue on the show.
