5 Teases for Royal Pains' Season 5 Finale: Evan's "Surprising Call" and Hank's Getaway?

Pills! Pregnancy! Politics! It's been a surprisingly intense season for the Hamptons' top concierge medical team on Royal Pains, and no one is more aware than the show's executive producers. "It was a very challenging prospect to deal with creatively and figuring out how to tell the story ... because we wanted to continue to show the chinks in the Hank armor and in a way that still protected the character and still protected the tone of the show," co-creator and executive producer Andrew Lenchewski tells TVGuide.com. "Hopefully when the audience sees how this all turns out in terms of the character, they'll understand why we told the story we told."

After overcoming the rough waters of Hank's addiction and Evan's first-ever political campaign, where does HankMed & Co. go from here? Ahead of...read more

Royal Pains' Paulo Costanzo on Directing, Divya's Big Love Scene, 50 Shades of Jewish?

Royal Pains' episode on Wednesday (9/8c, USA) marks the directorial debut of star Paulo Costanzo, but don't think anyone, or anything, went easy for him just because it was his first time behind the camera. See: a severe rain delay that kept the cameras rolling until 5 a.m., an hour-long fire alarm during a nightclub shoot and a very testy Brinks driver.

"We were shooting in the city and this Brinks truck pulled directly in the middle of our shot. All of these production assistants ran over and said you got to move it! The driver got out of the car, pulled... read more

Royal Pains' Ben Shenkman on Being the New Guy: He's Being Thrown Into the Deep End

The name on the masthead is still HankMed, but there will be a very different doctor checking in when Royal Pains returns this Wednesday (9/8c on USA).

After last season's finale shakeup, in which Hank (Mark Feuerstein) quit after clashing with his brother and CEO Evan (Paulo Constanzo) over the direction of the business, Evan hires Dr. Jeremiah Sacani (Ben Shenkman) to help fill the vacancy. "It's a fluke that he even gets the job. He only gets it because of Evan's desperation to get the ball rolling," Shenkman says. "It's always fun to play characters who... read more

Mega Buzz: Who's Coming Out on True Blood? Plus: Big Changes on NCIS, The Closer

Every week, editors Adam Bryant and Natalie Abrams satisfy your need for TV scoop. Please send all questions to mega_scoop@tvguide.com or tweet them at @adam_bryant or @NatalieAbrams.

I can't wait for True Blood to come back. Is Tara dead? Please say yes. I am so over her. — Denny
NATALIE: We literally can't answer this question, lest Alan Ball has us all staked. But we can tell you that the title of the season premiere is "Turn! Turn! Turn!" which is a song of Biblical extraction about profound change, like, say, dying, becoming a vampire or declaring your true sexuality. All three of these things will happen during this hour, but the question is: To whom? (Answer: Not all to the same person.)

Is NCIS getting new digs next year? — Jennifer, via Twitter
ADAM:
Not really, but... read more
