On the surface, the Season 14 premiere of CSI may feel a bit familiar.
After all, the show's premiere one year ago found the team searching for a team member's abducted loved one. And while this year, D.B. Russell (Ted Danson) & Co. are trying to find kidnapped team member Morgan (Elisabeth Harnois) and Ellie (Teal Redmann) the daughter of Brass (Paul Guilfoyle), that's pretty much where the similarities end.

ABC's innocuous new sitcom about likable underdogs, Back in the Game, could just as easily be called "Luck of the Draw." This Bad News Bears-lite gets a major assist right out of the gate with an enviable time period (Wednesday, 8:30/7:30c) sandwiched between TV's best family comedies, The Middle and Modern Family. Which could always backfire, of course, if the show doesn't live up to ratings expectations, and while this Little League comedy doesn't quite measure up to the big leagues, we shouldn't be surprised if family audiences rally around the team, turning a solid base hit into something potentially worthy of extra innings.
Someone turns up dead on the Sept. 25 season premiere of CBS's CSI. Who's the corpse in the casket? Executive producer Don McGill offers some clues:

D.B. Russell & Co. will get some extra help from an old friend on the CSI finale.
On Wednesday's season ender (10/9c, CBS), the team investigates a series of murders seemingly inspired by the sins from Dante's Inferno. But the person who helps Russell (Ted Danson) see the pattern is none other than...

Question: I've never written to you before, but I'm hoping you can look into a crystal ball for me and reassure me about the fate of Nashville. I'm totally hooked by this show, which is saying a lot since I haven't watched anything regularly on the big three networks for about 10 years or so. I'm extremely worried that Nashville is doomed for cancellation, since it appears that the ratings are pretty lackluster. Any gossip or buzz that you can pass on to reassure me?

It's hard to imagine Sam Malone from Cheers needing a maggot wrangler. "I've never seen anything like it," Ted Danson says. Even with silver hair, the Emmy-winning actor looks like a kid who just pulled apart his first earthworm. "You can tell how long a human body has been decomposing by the size of the bugs crawling inside!" And the wrangler's got every variety. "It's incredible, until you think, 'Oh, God. We're talking about dead people.'"
Louise Lombard will return to CSI for one episode, TV Line reports.

In Thursday's episode, Dr. Ray Langston (Laurence Fishburne) continues his obsessive hunt for serial killer Dr. Jekyll. But when Heidi Custer (Monet Mazur), an investigative reporter from Langston's past, ends up dead, some begin to wonder if Langston himself is behind the Jekyll murders.
"There are some doubts in some of the other team members, but Catherine is the one who really has his back," Helgenberger says...
As I begin, it's now exactly 34 minutes past the end of this week's episode and I'm still laughing. What a riot this was. You know Brass always brings a little bit of humor and he dominated this episode from the start. So, let's see. Our boxer "Happy" gets injected with snake venom, then has a severe allergic reaction to shellfish, which transferred to him via some "very special first-aid." Then as his lungs are tightening and he's about to lose all his air, he gets an arrow through the throat that actually keeps him alive and then he takes a crowbar to the skull. Oh, and that didn't kill him, either. A broken pool chair did. The scenes inside the Sugar Cane Ranch were so funny. Right from the start when Brass is interviewing the owners, Binky and Doris, I was rolling with laughter. Between Binky telling Brass the last time he saw Happy was when he was being rolled away and Doris saying that she fixed his favorite meal meat you could just tell that stupidity was going ...
