True Blood had quite an action-packed Season 4 finale: Sookie renounced Bill and Eric. They killed a Vampire Authority member. Tara took a bullet for Sookie, who shot Debbie Pelt in the head. Alcide murdered the packmaster. Lafayette killed Jesus. Jason revealed to Hoyt that he slept with Jessica. Steve Newlin showed up as a vampire. And Russell Edgington escaped. All caught up?

How soon will we meet Kalinda's husband next season on The Good Wife? — Beth
ADAM: We're hearing that he will be in the season premiere and at least five additional episodes next season. But he won't be the only new face. Look for a calculating, self-righteous bankruptcy trustee who's brought in to fix the firm's financial woes. We hear he butts heads with just about everyone. Perhaps that's because he's cutting costs...and — gulp! — slashing jobs?
I can't wait to see Russell Edgington again on True Blood. Got any scoop on his return? — Mark
NATALIE: The former King of Mississippi will...
The trail of bodies is getting longer on the new season of True Blood — and Russell Edgington's return probably won't help. The question remains: Who dug up the HBO drama's most dastardly villain ever from his concrete grave?
True Blood Season 5 Sneak Peek: Chris Meloni is undead! Eric has a sister!

True Blood poster
A new teaser for the upcoming fifth season of True Blood brings tears to our eyes.
In the poster HBO released Wednesday, we see a close-up of an eye crying blood, which is how our undead vampire friends express sorrow or pain. It's not a pretty sight.
It's official: When True Blood returns in June, so will the show's thought-to-be dead villain Russell Edgington!
"He's on the loose," Alcide (Joe Manganiello) tells Sookie (Anna Paquin) in this newly released teaser. "On the loose? Russell Edgington is dead!" she reponds.

Where would TV be without The Simpsons? Thankfully, it will still be a while before we'll ever have to find out. With no end in sight, Fox's landmark animated hit celebrates "the most meaningless milestone of all!" — their words — with Sunday's 500th episode (8/7c), a remarkable run by anyone's measure. Even if you've been taking this show for granted the last few years, or possibly decade, you don't want to miss — though you might want to record — the dazzling opening sequence, a kaleidoscopic montage showing the Simpsons' evolution from no-def to Hi-Def, with more couch gags than the eye and brain can process.

The return of the king?
HBO's new True Blood teaser is pretty skimpy on footage, but it does feature the ominous tagline "In Bon Temps, nothing stays buried forever." Is it ...

Question: I often appreciate the Golden Globes because they show greater range in the nominations than the Emmys, which tend to nominate the same people long after the bloom is off the rose. However, this year's nominees are just weird. Boss and American Horror Story instead of Breaking Bad, Justified or The Good Wife (or Friday Night Lights, if it was eligible)? Callie Thorne? Jeremy Irons? ...
