Lady Sif is coming to Midgard!
Jaimie Alexander will make her Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. debut on Tuesday (8/7c, ABC) as her Thor character Lady Sif attempts to track down Asgardian foe Lorelei (Elena Satine), the seductress who made a brief cameo at the end of last week's episode.

Ted Danson, Arsenio Hall
This week, Anthony Hopkins discussed his Breaking Bad fan letter with Jay Leno, while Ted Danson played a game of "Cheers or CSI?" with Arsenio Hall. Jimmy Kimmel resurrected his annual Halloween candy prank video, and Aziz Ansari's new stand-up special premiered on Netflix. Also, a group of middle school football players put together a heartwarming special play for one of their teammates, and an aspiring filmmaker figured out a way to amuse New York City subway conductors on the job. Check out those clips and more in our weekly roundup of the best online videos:
Even though Breaking Bad ended its five-season run last month, the show is continuing to pick up new fans — including acting legend Anthony Hopkins.
Hannibal is without a doubt the most appetizing scripted show on television, all thanks to creator Bryan Fuller and culinary consultant Chef Jose Andres. The showrunner and chef spoke to TVGuide.com about how they make human meat look so tasty and what sets Dr. Lecter (Mads Mikkelson) apart from your average cannibal.

In a year that's already given us Fox's The Following and A&E's Bates Motel, some might argue that we don't need another serial killer TV show. And they'd probably be right.
But NBC's Hannibal isn't just another serial killer show.
Spring Preview: Gets scoop on all the must-see new shows
Taking characters from the Thomas Harris novels that inspired a film series that includes Manhunter, The Silence of the Lambs and Red Dragon, executive producer Bryan Fuller (Wonderfalls, Pushing Daisies) has created a sophisticated drama that doesn't glorify the violence of mass murder but rather examines the toll that hunting serial killers takes on the minds and souls of those who hunt. In fact, even though the show is named after Dr. Hannibal Lecter, who was immortalized as one of the greatest pop culture villains of all time thanks to Anthony Hopkins' Oscar-winning portrayal, the series — at least initially — isn't entirely focused on the cannibal in the three-piece suit...
Remember the old X-Files mantra "Trust No One?" One of its producers surely does, and in creating the new Cinemax spy thriller Hunted, Frank Spotnitz makes it clear from the first scenes that you can't always trust your eyes, either.
It's a little past 8:30 p.m. on a weekday on the Warner Bros. lot and on the set of his talk show, Rove LA, host Rove McManus has one very important question: "Is any of this show going to make it to the telly?"
His show has already been taping for more than an hour, but it's a fair question. That's because this is the first time the Australian native has to deal with the c-word: censors. Season 2 — which premieres Saturday at midnight/11c on TV Guide Network with guests Russell Brand, Adam Lambert and 30 Rock's Kristen Schaal — marks the first time Rove LA will air new episodes in the U.S. McManus is still figuring out just what he can get away with here in the states.

After a long day of Suits, Gabriel Macht is ready to slip into something a little more comfortable. "I'm a T-shirt-and-jeans-with-combat-boots guy," says the Bronx-born actor, kicking back in his Toronto home after wrapping an episode of USA's whip-smart legal hit. "And if I don't have to shave, I don't."
While Macht, 40, may prefer the laid-back look, his hyper-polished character, Harvey Specter, opts to wage his courtroom battles armed in sleek Tom Ford suits. Beneath the surface, though, a case can be made that the two share a drive to succeed and a charm that's almost criminal. We deposed TV's smoothest legal eagle on crashing with his bromantic costar, ignoring the Swingers guide to dating and what it's like to have caviar with Sir Anthony Hopkins....
