The Mob Doctor, Fox's struggling freshman drama, has shown signs of improvement — both in its overall quality and in ratings -- since returning last week from a month-long hiatus. But it's got a long way to go before getting a clean bill of health. Here are five things we think the show could do to make its prognosis a little more positive:
Michael Madsen has booked a two-episode arc on Fox's The Mob Doctor, TVGuide.com has learned exclusively.
Madsen will play Russell King, a veteran criminal whose crimes require a certain flair and professional expertise. On the night of a big job, King has a flare-up of back pain and discovers he requires immediate surgery. We're guessing The Mob Doctor herself, Jordana Spiro's Grace Devlin, will be called on to help.
The creator of HBO's In Treatment and the producer of 2010's Oscar-nominated film Black Swan have teamed up to create a YouTube channel that showcases scripted series, short films and documentaries that feature female characters as leads.
Developed by Jon Avnet and Rodrigo Garcia, WIGS (the name stands for "Where It Gets Interesting") is currently the No. 1-rated scripted channel on YouTube. Its first seven "series" (all named after the central character) have featured actresses including Jennifer Garner, America Ferrera, Julia Stiles, Jena Malone and more.

During Castle's recent two-parter, Rick's former muse dropped a bombshell just before she was seemingly killed.

Sophia (guest star Jennifer Beals) hinted to Castle (Nathan Fillion) that his father may have had ties to the CIA, which would explain both his absence from Castle's life as well as the ease with which Castle was able to shadow a federal agent. The question remains: Is Sophia — who was revealed to actually be a Russian sleeper agent — being honest?
"I think he is evaluating whether Sophia was telling him the truth," creator and executive producer Andrew W. Marlowe tells TVGuide.com....
