The Haves and the Have Nots will focus on the dynamics and secrets of the wealthy Cryer family and of the family of their maid, Hanna. Love Thy Neighbor, a half-hour comedy, will center on a local diner and all of its zany customers. The two series are part of...

White Collar returned last night for its third season and, lord, they didn't waste any time getting right back into the action, huh? So, since we lovelovelove USA's crafty con drama and what is being set up with this Nazi treasure mystery, the Watercooler has decided to devote today's column to a chat with star Matt Bomer about what's coming up and why Neal may not be such a good guy after all. (But shhh, don't tell Peter!)
What a difference eight years makes. Back then, White Collar's con-man extraordinaire Neal Caffrey (Matt Bomer) was a little more blue collar, FBI agent Peter Burke (Tim DeKay) was itching to collar him, and street swindler Mozzie (Willie Garson) wore a piece. And we don't mean a gun.
"I remember walking past the hair and makeup room and seeing Willie in a different toupee every time and just dying laughing," says Bomer. "My favorite was the 'Shaggy' look from Scooby Doo."
But tonight's White Collar episode — which flashes back to 2003 — explores deeper roots than Mozzie's. Over a six-pack and a bottle of red wine, Peter and Neal discuss their most pressing case: catching Vincent Adler (Andrew McCarthy), the man behind Kate's death, the music-box mystery and Mozzie's shooting....
Diahann Carroll has been added to the cast of White Collar, the USA Network pilot starring Tim DeKay and Matthew Bomer, TVGuide.com has learned. DeKay (Carnivale) plays an FBI agent, and Bomer (Traveler) is a top-shelf con man recruited by the feds to help bust similarly crafty criminals.
Carroll will play June, a classy ...
Episode Recap LoveAddictionDisbelief Thats how I would describe my reaction and the look on Izzies face during the first five minutes of tonights episode George loves Izzie thats all there is to it and now he cant wait to share the news with Callie Its almost unbelievable Especially considering the lengths George went to prior to tonight just to avoid Izzie and any related talk about their recent indiscretion Now its almost like he cant wait to shout it out to the world Though I will say it is nice to see George so exuberant and full of life this week Last week he seemed so frustrated and depressed about repeating his internship that Im almost willing to forgive Gizzie AlmostAnd poor Callie Just when you think things cant get any worse for her they do Not only is the new job still not working out but now shes also convinced George and Izzie are having an affair I have to say I was surprised to see her admit the latter to Mark Sloan of all people
Diahann Carroll in Grey's Anatomy by Craig Sjodin/ABC
If you don't like tonight's first-rate episode of Grey's Anatomy, which fires on about as many cylinders as possible (humor and emotion coexisting wonderfully), then you should probably face the fact that you simply don't like Grey's anymore, if you ever did. Diahann Carroll, terrific as the departed Burke's visiting mom, hovers around Seattle Grace this week as a much-needed reality check and conscience for the various characters: including Meredith, who could always use a good dressing-down for her narcissism, and George, who's still dithering about how to do the right thing in his romantic quandary involving wife Callie and obsessive crush Izzie.But Mama Burke is really there for Cristina (the fabulous Sandra Oh), who is frozen emotionally as she surveys the wedding gifts that surround her to remind her of her broken relationship. Work is a thankful distraction (Carnage always trumps rounds, she tells her nameless interns), but she can only hide from Prestons mo...
