On the Lot judges Jon Avnet, Carrie Fisher and Brett Ratner
Fox's On the Lot, a new reality show from Steven Spielberg and Mark Burnett, searches for Hollywood's next top director. Here are the five things you need to know before the camera starts rolling tonight at 9 pm/ET.

After it was resolved that Justin's deployment to Iraq would be delayed to allow him to work on his recovery, much of his story line has centered on his struggle to shake his addiction. But Justin's fears about going back to war were always there in the background. And tonight those fears became a reality in the worst way, as Justin found out at the last minute that his departure date was earlier than planned. At first I liked the way Justin handled his goodbyes individually until, like Nora, I realized that he was saying goodbye for real, in case he wouldnt be coming back. Even though I can see, rationally, how it doesnt matter whether or not the word goodbye is actually said, I can understand how Nora felt that avoiding a formal goodbye would bring Justin back to her, as if not saying goodbye would make it impossible for him to die.

Garry Marshall knows how to make people laugh. The man's been doing it since he first started writing jokes for Jack Parr on The Tonight Show. From his mind sprung classic TV shows like Happy Days and Laverne & Shirley, and under his direction, films such as Pretty Woman and The Princess Diaries became Hollywood blockbusters. Here, the 70-year-old writer/director (and sometime actor) tells TV Guide Online about his film Raising Helen (out this week on DVD) and why saying his name always makes us smile.
TVGO: What was it like directing Kate Hudson?Garry Marshall: She's fearless and will try anything. She has learned from her family about how to work and how to be a professional. She has a certain bubbly thing that gets up there on screen. Maybe it's because she hears music in her head a lot when she's acting.
TVGO: I just hear voices.Marshall: Voices I hear also.
