Ted Danson, Elisabeth Shue
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.

When will Marshall tell Lily about his judgeship on How I Met Your Mother? Please don't tell me it'll take the whole wedding weekend/season. — Mary
ADAM: Marshall's secret will be part of the "dirty laundry" that executive producer Carter Bays promises will "come exploding out" during the wedding weekend like last year's meatball sub. But naturally, it won't be Marshall who spills the beans.
I can't believe Dexter's almost over! What's coming up? — Teri

Hugh Dancy, Mads Mikkelsen
Could it be that NBC has produced a keeper in the deliciously creepy Hannibal? We shouldn't break out the proverbial Chianti just yet; the early returns have been modest, to put it mildly, but in this tough-for-NBC time period (Thursday, 10/9c) that the network once owned, it's looking better than it has lately (with an insta-dud like Do No Harm or the below-the-radar Rock Center). And the media buzz, while understandably mixed, is stronger than for most of the networks' midseason yawns. With repeats on the other networks this week, and featuring one of the show's most relentlessly unnerving chapters to date, this is as good a time as any to sample Hannibal's unsavory wares.
Did someone call for a wedding crasher?

That certainly holds true in the CBS drama's Season 13 finale (Wednesday at 10/9c). When one of the mayor's key supporters is suspected of murdering his own wife, D.B. Russell (Ted Danson) & Co. are tasked with clearing his name. In the process of doing so, however...
Around the World in 80 Plates
Those Magical Elves have done it again. The producers who helped put Bravo on the map with the original Project Runway and Top Chef have revitalized the seemingly exhausted cooking-competition format with a new winner that smartly combines elements of The Amazing Race and even Survivor. Though not initially quite as exotic as BBC America's new No Kitchen Required, the kitchen culture-clash possibilities appear endless in Bravo's instantly addictive Around the World in 80 Plates (10/9c).
Castle, Private Practice, Law & Order: SVU
Every week, editors Adam Bryant and Natalie Abrams satisfy your need for TV scoop. Please send all questions to email@example.com.
I know Castle is trying to keep Castle and Beckett apart, but why is he acting like such a brat? — Liz
ADAM: He's just being a man, creator Andrew W. Marlowe says. "Men in general usually don't confront their feelings," he says of Castle's reaction to learning that Beckett remembers Castle's declaration of love. "He's certainly not the type of person to go up to Beckett and say, 'Hey, you hurt me!' because that would be exposing himself. He's expressing his anger with Beckett, and whether he knows it or not, he's trying to punish her without really putting his cards on the table." But don't worry: Beckett will soon figure out what set Castle off, thanks to another revealing chat with her therapist.
