Though Bijou Philips' fate appears to be cemented in the pilot of new Fox comedy Raising Hope, creator and executive producer Greg Garcia confirms to TV Guide Magazine that we will be seeing the actress again. "She comes back for an episode. We shot it last week and it was very funny," he said at the Fox's PaleyFest: Fall TV Preview Party, sponsored by TV Guide Magazine, on September 13.
No news wasn't good news for the press gathered at Fox's TCA day on Monday, with everyone hoping in vain for some definitive word on who'll be judging (or not) on American Idol next season. No deals, so no deal, said the side-stepping Fox execs.
Who needs judges? Let us be the judge—of Fox's new fall programming, which is the main reason summer TCA exists, after all. The good news: Fox is launching only three new shows, and one is my favorite new drama of the season and one my favorite new comedy...
Everyone loves Betty White, but not Cloris Leachman.
"I'm so sick of Betty White," Leachman said at the Television Critics Association's fall previews on Tuesday. "Never liked her."
The 84-year-old actress, who plays a wild, chest-baring granny in Fox's new fall comedy Raising Hope, commandeered the show's session, forcing co-star...
Fox's new primetime lineup will feature more comedy and a little less American Idol, the network announced Monday. Fox will take the bold step of cutting the long-running (and sometimes loooong) show and will introduce three dramas and four comedies, including one that pairs Will Arnett and Keri Russell.
The show, Running Wilde, will join Glee as part of the network's new Tuesday night comedy block.

Kelli Williams, Lie to Me
Lie to Me made some behind-the-scenes changes this season, translating into on-screen changes for Kelli Williams' character, Gillian Foster.
Shawn Ryan tells the truth about reinventing Lie to Me
The 39-year-old former star of The Practice says the addition of executive producer Shawn Ryan and a focus on character-based stories has helped the series, which premiered as a midseason replacement in January. Williams says she welcomes the changes, which have opened numerous possibilities for Foster's future.
"Foster was in a much heavier place at the end of last year with her marriage falling apart," Williams says. "This season there's a little bit more levity in the office. And since I'm no longer with my husband, there are a lot of places they can take Foster."
For one thing, the writers chose to make Foster less of a stickler...

Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles
The following story contains spoiler information about last night's Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles.
Before Season 2 of Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles premiered, executive producer Josh Friedman teased a big death — saying when it hit your screen, you'd certainly know it.
This reporter's money was on Agent Ellison, or perhaps Dean Winters' EMT. For some reason, never did it enter my mind that Team Connor would actually get the upper hand on Cromartie and thus terminate the terminator who has taunted them for so long.
"Cromartie kind of forced their hand," series scribe Dan Thomsen explains. "He was a good terminator and got to his prey" — and thus had to be dealt with.
Read more about the repurcussions of the death and get lots more scoop — including Friedman's take on Terminator's new midseason time slot and his dream Dollhouse crossover — after the jump.
