The Thursday Playlist: Star Vehicles for Fox, Hayes and Williams

Robin Williams and James Wolk

Comebacks are big news this fall — James Spader enjoyed one on Monday with the splashy premiere of NBC's The Blacklist — and nowhere is this more true than on Thursdays, with three high-profile comedy vehicles for beloved stars from sitcoms past. And while conventional wisdom has long suggested that it's easier to create new stars on TV — Sleepy Hollow's Tom Mison, anyone? — than to build new shows around old favorites, what really matters is giving them material that lives up to the billing.

Sneak Peek: Robin Williams and Sarah Michelle Gellar Return to TV In The Crazy Ones

Robin Williams, Sarah Michelle Gellar

On the set of The Crazy Ones, it's all fun and games until Robin Williams starts riffing on colonoscopy videos. Then things just go batty. "I bet you haven't seen one in HD and 3-D," he says, waving a DVD. "I'll get you a copy overnight. Hold on, I'll call Fecal Express."

Thirty-two years after uttering his final "nanu nanu" on Mork & Mindy, Williams is back in manic mode on a primetime half-hour comedy, this one from Ally McBeal and Boston Legal creator David E. Kelley. Williams plays... read more

The Newsroom: How Many Careers Could "Genoa" End?

Hamish Linklater

Even though Hamish Linklater's character on The Newsroom is at the center of the season's slowly unfolding disaster known as "Genoa," the actor has a hard time accepting his character as a villain.

"He's just a true believer who thinks he's on the side of the angels, and that's why he does what he does," Linklater tells TVGuide.com of his character, Jerry Dantana. "But what was great was that they didn't push me into twirling my mustache or being sort of an obvious bad guy."

The Newsroom Goes Back on the Air With Some Key Changes

Jeff Daniels, The Newsroom

When Aaron Sorkin's cable news drama The Newsroom returns for its second season Sunday, things will look a little different.

"We broke one of our own important rules," executive producer Alan Poul tells TVGuide.com. "In the first season, we said there are no fictional news stories. ... We did very well with the 'What's the breaking news story going to be this week?' template, but we had some concern that would get a little bit old. [But] if we had one story that could serve as the through-line on which we could still hang our current event stories, that would give this season an essentially different character."

The Weekend Playlist: A Great Wife, a Simpsons Short, Downton Finale

Julianna Margulies

With back-to-back Sundays devoted to the Super Bowl and the Grammys, CBS has enjoyed a spectacular February so far. This Sunday, the only week in February with no major TV event — next Sunday belongs to ABC and the Oscars — the network's ratings will no doubt come back down to earth. But two of CBS' Emmy-winning crown jewels take center stage, and in one case shouldn't be missed.

Wednesday TV Review: SVU Turns 300 (and CSI Isn't Far Behind), Plus Nashville

Mariska Hargitay

Hitting the 300-episode benchmark is an impressive achievement for any series, but by the standards of the Law & Order franchise, SVU still has a ways to go before it approaches, let alone overtakes, the longevity of the still-missed mothership, which clocked more than 450 hours before NBC's abrupt pulling of the plug two years ago. read more

"Girth"

Interesting episode title and interesting episode. And by interesting I mean excellent, as usual.I like that we spent some serious time with Olive this week. I know many of you love her, and tonight we got a little glimpse into Olive’s past. Since she’s so short — 4' 11" to be exact — it would make sense that she was a jockey in a former life. She’s one of the sport’s best and brightest until a tragic accident brings her career to an end. When Olive’s jockey friends start going to that big racetrack in the sky, Olive knows she needs Emerson’s help to discover what’s really going on. She’s afraid the ghost of John Joseph Jacobs (Hamish Linklater) is returning to kill every jockey who crossed the finish line in the race that cost him his life. Turns out his witchy (with a b) mother (Barbara Barrie) has been impersonating him — on a horse that breathes fire, no less — to revenge the earnings and glory her son lost in that race... read more
