Critic's Notebook: Fox at TCA

Jada Pinkett Smith, Robin Lord Taylor

Gotham City to the rescue? Fox certainly hopes Gotham, its dark and stylish noir set in the corrupt, broken pre-Batman metropolis, will revive the fortunes of a network undergoing one of its most significant leadership transitions. (The architect of this fall's schedule, Kevin Reilly, stepped down in late May, and Dana Walden and Gary Newman, the Fox Studio heads who will take over network oversight in a more streamlined operation, won't start their new positions until the end of the month.)

The Gotham panel was the first and most impressive new-series presentation on Fox's day at the TCA press tour. (For more Fox news, go here.) With its revisionist twist on Batman mythology as it spills out origin stories featuring various supervillains-to-be, Gotham is the buzziest show on Fox's fall slate — airing on Mondays alongside breakout hit Sleepy Hollow won't hurt — but it's not without risk. read more

The moment Mentalist fans have been waiting for for six seasons has arrived. Will Patrick Jane (Simon Baker) and Teresa Lisbon's (Robin Tunney) professional partnership finally turn into something more on Sunday's season finale?

Well ... that's up to Lisbon to decide. Her options: Accompany new boyfriend Marcus Pike (Pedro Pascal) to Washington, D.C. and accept his marriage proposal, or stay behind with Jane, who hasn't exactly tried to sweep her off her feet.

We're already stocking up on tissues for Sandra Oh's sure-to-be-tearful farewell. But Yang's heartbreaking send-off won't be the episode's sole focus.
