What's this I hear about Brennan solving her own murder on Bones? — Maggie
ADAM: Well, Brennan obviously isn't the corpse, but her resemblance to the victim is uncanny. Executive producer Stephen Nathan says the experience will be educational for Bones. "Brennan gets to look at herself objectively, which is something she's never really been able to do," he says. "She sees herself in a new light, and that obviously will change her character to a certain extent."

Jeers to Swift Justice.

No, I'm not talking about Taylor Swift's VMA revenge on Kanye West — although I'd rather watch those two mudwrestle than this new syndicated Judge Judy not-gonnabe with Nancy Grace. Can someone please explain this browbeating brute's appeal? As if she doesn't have enough time on her nightly hourlong self-titled HLN jeremiad to badger would-be witnesses, now she's appointed herself judge, jury and executioner on small-claims cases brought by plaintiffs and defendants naïve — or attention-starved — enough to allow Grace to make a final, binding decision...

CNN's Campbell Brown is ending her CNN show, and being blunt about the reason why.
"I knew on the day that I accepted my job at CNN that a ratings victory at 8 p.m. was going to be a formidable challenge. As I have been told over and over, this is the toughest timeslot in cable news," Brown said in a statement Tuesday. "Of course I pay attention to ratings. And simply put, the ratings for my program are ...
Tonights continuation episode was well worth the wait pulling out all the stops in the laugh department What better way to get the ball rolling than having that tongue-in-cheek action-packed recap bring us back up to speed It kind of reminded me of all those internet movie trailer mash-ups that are so plentiful these days but of course with much better editing What followed was one of the most rapid-fire Earl episodes Ive seen in a while hitting all the right nuances of the plot cramming it with humor and not wasting a second If I had an MVP award to hand out it would undoubtedly go to Ethan Suplee Its interesting that Randy the simpleton of the bunch somehow consistently emerges as the most multi-faceted character of the show Last week we saw his vindictive side and this time he showed a sad introspective side I couldnt help finding the crying Im-not-good-at-anything scene quite touching albeit in a funny this-is-a-comedy-show kind of way Im glad that
Headline Newswoman Nancy Grace, who gave birth to twins earlier this month, has been hospitalized with complications from her pregnancy, People reports. "Her doctors found two blood clots in her lungs, which occurred as a result of the pregnancy," explains a spokesperson for the show. — Ben Katner

Two months before her due date, Nancy Grace became the mother of twins, one boy (John David) and one girl (Lucy Elizabeth). On Sunday doctors induced labor because the 48-year-old CNN personality had developed pulmonary edema (that's fluid in the lungs, for those of us who are a few seasons behind on ER), which could have compromised both her and her children's health. Grace is hitched to David Linch, an investment banker, not the Twin Peaks guy. —Ben Katner
ABC's The View: it's not just a talk show, but a veritable magnet for headline makers. No sooner had Nancy Grace announced (to her Court TV bosses' surprise, it is said) that she would be leaving the cabler to focus on her CNN Headline News program, the New York Daily News hears that the brassy blonde is angling to fill Rosie's seat on The View. My only question: how is it that Paris' name has yet to enter the mix?
Nancy Grace is leaving Court TV's Nancy Grace: Closing Arguments to focus on her eponymous CNN Headline News program, Variety reports. Grace has anchored both shows since Headline News' 2005 relaunch, but has been mulling a Court TV departure ever since the cabler announced that as part of an upcoming, Star Jones-centered makeover, it would cut her Closing Arguments in half, to just an hour. In a statement, Grace says, "Court TV will always hold a special place in my heart, and I will always look back at my time there with great gratitude and affection."
