Supernatural Cheat Sheet: What to Expect in Season 9

Jensen Ackles, Jared Padalecki

Supernatural returns for its ninth season Tuesday (8/7c, The CW) and we can't wait to see what's next for Team Free Will.

"I think this year's first three episodes of setting up our world are all pretty special," executive producer Robert Singer told reporters at Comic-Con over the summer. "There may be certain moves that some of our characters make that some fans don't like, but I think they're going to understand them ... and it's really going to be driving the mythology."

The Thursday Playlist: Suits, FX Goes Legit, a Nerds War and Oprah Rides Lance

Patrick J. Adams

Winning the battle was only half the story — or, in this case, the season. USA Network's Suits returns Thursday (10/9c) to finish out a second year, its momentum from the crackling first half of the season somewhat stalled by the four-month break. Nothing in the first two new episodes quite matches the tension of the summer run, which was dominated by a suspenseful in-house battle for control of the Pearson Hardman (now minus Hardman) law firm.

On the Set: Secrets of The Closer Finale

Kyra Sedgwick

Last December, Kyra Sedgwick could be found conducting one of her hissing interrogations, the kind riveting enough to win her a Lead Actress Emmy; the kind she usually performs in a tiny, unadorned room at LAPD headquarters. Only, for "The Last Word," the 109th and final episode ever of TNT's hit procedural The Closer, Sedgwick's Deputy Police Chief Brenda Leigh Johnson is prying information out of a terrified witness while standing in a puffy black parka and thick beige scarf in a remote, windy part of Griffith Park.

Since The Closer debuted in 2005, it's been... read more

Nearly 30 years after his breakout role as Booger in Revenge of the Nerds, the ubiquitous character actor is busier than ever. In addition to his cameo in the new big-screen comedy Bucky Larson: Born to Be a Star, he butted heads with Emmy winner Kyra Sedgwick as Peter Goldman, the sanctimonious attorney who literally turned his crusade against Chief Brenda Leigh Johnson into a federal case in The Closer's summer finale.

The Closer's Final Season: Is Brenda Ready to Call It Quits?

The Closer

The beginning of the end is here for The Closer: After six seasons, Emmy winner Kyra Sedgwick is only 21 episodes away from turning in her badge as Deputy Chief Brenda Leigh Johnson. And series creator and executive producer James Duff says it's going to be an emotional ride.

"The theme of this season is love and loss," Duff tells TVGuide.com. "Loss is part of the promise of love. The only promise that you ever get with love, is that it will end. So we wanted to incorporate how much we loved doing these stories: how much Brenda loved her job, how much she cared about her part in the justice system, and how much it would mean to her to step away from all of that."

The Book of Daniel There's something...

Heather Graham, Emily's Reasons Why Not

The Book of Daniel There's something about pairing Jesus with a Vicodin-popping Episcopalian priest that creates brouhaha. We expected the Bill O'Reillys of the world to complain (Someday O'Reilly is going to be driven to insanity when he awakens in the Twilight Zone surrounded by nice, sensible people), but apparently many in the Midwest found the subject matter so repellent that stations in places like Terre Haute pulled Daniel from their schedules. Another triumph for the easily offended. Normal-ites should ask a different question: Is The Book of Daniel worth checking out? I'd say it's a flawed but worthwhile experiment. Aidan Quinn makes a very human reverend, a man whose faith in God is directly proportional to the lack of faith he has in himself. D read more
