Question: With the passing of the legendary TV talents Robin Williams and James Garner, don't you think it would be remiss if the upcoming Emmys didn't do a clips tribute to both of them? Awards shows have an unfortunate habit of dedicating chunks of time to a theme or subject that either makes no sense or ends up really boring. But these two gentlemen, who broke character boundaries and were excellent actors outside their niche personas, deserve special recognition. I just hope the producers of that upcoming show have the smarts to do something special, outside of the "In Memoriam" roll call. Your thoughts? — Karen

Ben Schwartz and Josh Lawson

On Showtime's House of Lies (Sundays, 10/9c), Clyde has always been the pod's comic relief. But can he step it up and be the top dog? Viewers are about to find out.

"You get to find the different shades of Clyde," actor-writer Ben Schwartz tells of Sunday's episode. "Since the beginning, Clyde is someone who's after Marty's job. He recognizes that Marty is a friend of his, but I still think he would do anything he can to get to the next level, to get to be in the position that Marty's at.

When actress Nia Long joined the cast of NBC's Third Watch (Fridays, 9 pm/ET) last year, she was thrilled to play policewoman Sasha Monroe right on New York City's mean streets. In fact, the 34-year-old Brooklyn native looks so convincing, passersby sometimes mistake her make-believe for reality. "[I love] running around the streets of New York in a cop uniform with a gun," Long happily tells TV Guide Online. "[Recently,] I was on a long break. I had my uniform on, but I was on my cell phone and was wearing flip-flops. My shirt was out, but I had my gun belt on. And this woman, someone hit her car and ran."She's like, 'Miss, you are police officer, right?' I'm like, 'No, what are you talking about?' I forgot that I had the uniform on. She's like, 'I need someone to call the police.' I'm like, 'Well, call 911, I'm not a [real] cop.'" Aside from these occasional moments of confusion, Long enjoys her work atmosphere.
