The summer's most gripping series (until Breaking Bad started back up) rushes toward a shattering conclusion as BBC America's Broadchurch presents its penultimate episode (Wednesday, 10/9c), with broken lives and aching hearts on all fronts — including the ailing Hardy's (David Tennant), who won't let his latest collapse keep him from pursuing little Danny's killer: "Don't tell me what my limits are," he barks. As more skeletons are unearthed in this seaside community (and let's hope the mysterious Susan's poor dog isn't one of them), the toll of secrets and suspicion weighs heavy: "Once it's got its claws into you, it never lets go," says one of the many suspects whose world has been rocked by the tragic events and poisonous fallout. Don't let next week's denouement escape you as the new broadcast season gets underway with all of its bells and whistles.

Two American Idol alums took home top honors Wednesday night at the 2012 CMT Music Awards.
We begin with Emily chatting with her mom while the men are meeting Chris in the courtyard to get the first date card of the week, which goes to Chris. Before we know it, they're walking through downtown Charlotte, hand-in-hand, until they reach a building — that they'll have to climb up. The ropes fall from the top and the harnesses come out and the two are getting ready to scale the wall. As they're climbing, the wind picks up and lighting flashes, so Emily starts to freak out. And it doesn't help there's now a crowd below. They soon reach the top, but rather than kissing her, Chris gives Emily a high-five. How, um, romantic?
