The New Season in Review: Marry Me

Ironic that in a fall season where so many new romantic comedies are fighting for our attention, and maybe even our affection, I'm still waiting to fall in love. Maybe it's the Goldilocks syndrome of being necessarily picky: one's too gimmicky (Manhattan Love Story), one's too generic (A to Z), one's too self-consciously trendy (Selfie), none seems just right.

Last of the batch to arrive, and thankfully not the least, NBC's brash and hyper-verbal farce Marry Me (Tuesday, 9/8c) is at least worth falling in "like" with, especially if your own heart was broken by ABC's cancellation of Happy Endings a year or so ago. That show's executive producer, David Caspe, has cast the funniest female from that ensemble (Saturday Night Live veteran Casey Wilson) — who happens to be his real-life bride — as the maddening Annie, who's her own worst enemy when it comes to her six-year romance with the long-suffering Jake (an endearingly droll Ken Marino).

Mega Buzz: Grey's Tries Real-Time, a New Chick for Chuck and the Return of Fizbo!

Any Grey's Anatomy scoop on Meredith? AJ
NATALIE: The Feb. 10 episode, which is titled "Golden Hour," will follow Meredith for a real-time 60 minutes as she runs the E.R. "Golden hour" is medical jargon for the crucial first hour after a trauma, and how it can often be the difference between life and death, so don't expect "Golden" to be rosy.

I could really use some Chuck scoop right about now. — Marcus

Mega Buzz: Hope for Calzona on Grey's, Damon's Vampire Rival and a Fringe Death

Every week, editors Adam Bryant and Natalie Abrams satisfy your need for TV scoop. Please send all questions to mega_scoop@tvguide.com.

Will Callie's hookup with Mark come back to haunt her when Arizona returns on Grey's Anatomy? — Sharlene
NATALIE:
Here's the good news: "Callie and Arizona will be back together soon," executive producer Shonda Rhimes says simply, adding that Arizona will soon show up on Callie's doorstep. "[The breakup] was a way to jump-start the next phase of their storyline." The bad news? Oh wait, this is good news, too! "Mark is her best friend, they slept together before, so it's just recycling. Two people having sex does not necessarily mean that they're in love, or that they're going to be together, or that it means anything."

Every week, senior editors Mickey O'Connor and Adam Bryant satisfy your need for TV scoop. Please send all questions to mega_scoop@tvguide.com.

Have you heard anything about Ziva's storyline on NCIS' November sweeps episodes? — Carly
ADAM: A special security team will be tasked with protecting Ziva's father (Michael Nouri) when he attends an NCIS conference. Also at the conference: former NCIS agent Riley McCallister, whose troubled past has given him a bit of a hero complex. It's probably no accident that McCallister is played by Michael O'Neill, who learned a lot about gunplay as a Secret Service agent on The West Wing and as the gunman who shot the hell out of Seattle Grace in last year's Grey's Anatomy finale.

Who does Amber Tamblyn play on House? — Peter
MICKEY:
House describes her as the "the love child of Einstein and Mary Poppins." The brainiac's bleeding-heart principles of course irk the cranky doc. So he fires her — several times.... read more
