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.

Finale Preview: Get scoop on 39 must-watch season-enders
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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
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.
Some Private Practice scoop, please!!! I'm dying! — Manuela
NATALIE: Don't die! Private Practice returns next Tuesday! This scoop, however, may kill you:
Peri Gilpin, Ted Danson
Frasier star Peri Gilpin has booked a multi-episode guest-starring gig on CSI as Allison, the wife of Ted Danson's D.B. Russell.
Born into a well-to-do California family, Allison turned her back on the world of yachts and horses when she married Russell. She is described as Russell's intellectual equivalent, but also the woman that rules his heart — and life...
Peri Gilpin, Nia Vardalos
Nia Vardalos and Peri Gilpin will guest-star as bickering sisters on an upcoming episode of Grey's Anatomy, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
Vardalos, who wrote and starred in the hit comedy My Big Fat Greek Wedding, has recently appeared on Cougar Town and Drop Dead Diva. Gilpin, who played Kelsey Grammer's sidekick on Frasier, currently co-stars on the ABC Family series Make It or Break It.
In Season 2, Hot in Cleveland (10/9c, TV Land) has already seen Betty White's old TV pincushion Mary Tyler Moore and Valerie Bertinelli's former sitcom mom Bonnie Franklin fill big guest slots. And, according to executive producer Todd Milliner, the parade of bold-faced names won't end there. "We've got a lot of people who want to come in and play with these guys," says Milliner.
Make It or Break It, the new series about wannabe Olympic gymnasts, stuck its landing in its debut, delivering the largest audience for an ABC Family premiere since The Secret Life of the American Teenager.
Frasier alum Peri Gilpin visited the TVGuide.com offices to talk up the show, on which she plays mom to a pair of vaulting, tumbling prospects. Watch the video after the jump.
