Michael Emerson, Amy Acker
The season finale of CBS' Person of Interest will literally be a race to the finish.
In the penultimate episode of the show's sophomore season, Reese (Jim Caviezel) and Finch (Michael Emerson) learned that The Machine had taken extraordinary measures to protect itself from a virus that was designed to take The Machine offline. Once the virus took hold, The Machine made two phone calls — one to Reese and one to Finch's hacker nemesis Root (Amy Acker) — potentially giving them access to The Machine's secrets for 24 hours. So, who capitalizes first? ...

In one of the better winter cliffhangers before the holiday break, CBS' Person of Interest (9/8c) left off with Reese (Jim Caviezel) in custody, having saved his partner Finch's hide but failing to escape the scene of their latest caper before he was rounded up with the episode's bad guys. The feds know they have the elusive "Man in a Suit" in their grasp, but too bad for them that everyone they nabbed is similarly attired. Which guy in the suit is their prey? Reese isn't talking — some things never change. So while Finch (Michael Emerson) takes up the slack with the "machine," pretending to be a substitute teacher to help out a teen hacker prodigy, it's up to Detective Carter (Taraji P. Henson) to try to get the quietly lethal vigilante out of their clutches. (This story continues next week, so don't expect an instant miracle.)
Person of Interest
A postcard-perfect day in lower Manhattan is shattered by mass hysteria as hordes of office workers run screaming from a building. Passersby watch with a mix of awe and trepidation when, suddenly, Jim Caviezel's John Reese emerges, receiving and relating instructions via his trusty earpiece seconds before the scene comes to an end.

On a night that's hardly starved for appealing programming, two of the season's most enjoyable and intriguing pilots make their bow.
First, the underdog: ABC's Last Resort (8/7c), an electrifying military-gone-amok thriller that bridges the macho hardware of Tom Clancy with the suspense of paranoid Cold War classics from the '60s like Fail Safe and Seven Days in May. (Look them up if you've never seen them.) This series is like nothing else on network TV, which is why one's first impulse is to pray for its survival. It's also airing in what has become one of ABC's more treacherous time periods, and beyond the fact that there are very attractive people in the cast (starting with Felicity alum Scott Speedman) and the story is heavily serialized, it has nearly nothing in common tonally with the night's sudsy anchor, Grey's Anatomy.

"Lost was unique because those cliff-hangers didn't just involve physical danger," Emerson tells TVGuide.com. "They were metaphysical too. Like, 'Oh wow, what does that mean?'"
And while Emerson jokingly admits that his Person of Interest character Finch won't turn any frozen donkey wheels that make the island of Manhattan disappear, big changes are coming to the surveillance-obsessed CBS drama....

Taraji P. Henson, Jim Caviezel
Over the last few episodes, CBS' Person of Interest has done something rather, well, interesting.

The hit freshman procedural has taken Taraji P. Henson's Detective Carter — the cop who spent the first half of the season hot on the trail of vigilantes Reese (Jim Caviezel) and Finch (Michael Emerson) — and turned her into the high-tech duo's partner in vigilantism. Creator and executive producer Jonathan Nolan acknowledges that, at the request of CBS, the twist has happened faster than he originally intended, but he insists it was always in the back of his mind.
"The pitch from the very beginning with this character was that you'd start with a little bit of Tommy Lee Jones from The Fugitive, and you'd wind up with a character closer spiritually to Commissioner Gordon," Nolan tells TVGuide.com...

There's a deadly serious competition brewing this calendar year regarding a peculiar sort of bragging right: Who has the worst new comedy of 2012? Is it ABC, with the clumsy drag farce Work It? NBC, with the shrill swill of Are You There, Chelsea? (Fox doesn't enter the fray until this weekend with the launch of the negligible animated ...

Question: Now that we are about at the mid-season break for shows, I have been thinking about which returning shows are having the best, most satisfying seasons. Fringe, Castle, Community and Bones are at the top of my list, but I have to single out Parks and Recreation as the best returning show. I wasn't sure Parks and Rec could sustain the consistently funny run it had last season, but it has easily lived up to the expectations of Season 3. I think what has made this season even better ...
