Happy (and busy) premiere week. It's a killer thriller showdown when two of the fall season's slickest new shows, NBC's The Blacklist and CBS's limited-run suspense serial Hostages, square off Monday (at 10:01/9:01c) in a contest of marquee power and derivative but inviting high concepts. They take on ABC's durable Castle, opening its sixth season (10:01/9:01c) with its star-crossed leads facing a personal and professional crossroads.
Cristin Milioti was up for the mother of all roles and she didn't even realize it.

Is it finally happening? Will How I Met Your Mother actually reveal Ted's future wife on Monday's Season 8 finale?
