Winning the battle was only half the story — or, in this case, the season. USA Network's Suits returns Thursday (10/9c) to finish out a second year, its momentum from the crackling first half of the season somewhat stalled by the four-month break. Nothing in the first two new episodes quite matches the tension of the summer run, which was dominated by a suspenseful in-house battle for control of the Pearson Hardman (now minus Hardman) law firm.

Happy Endings may have ended Season 2 with Dave (Zachary Knighton) having shared a moment with longtime pal Penny (Casey Wilson) and ex-fiancée Alex (Elisha Cuthbert), but there will be nothing ambiguous about any other their statuses when Season 3 premieres Tuesday (9/8c, ABC).
"We never saw Dave and Alex as a couple since the show obviously [started with her leaving him at the altar], so we really like the idea of exploring that relationship now," executive producer Josh Bycel tells TVGuide.com. "We kind of stumbled upon it, but it was actually better that we were able to have a season and a half to help create real, distinct characters for Dave and Alex, so it ... makes them a [more fun] couple together."

The "Very Funny" cable network burned off the whopping nine-episode season of its sly charmer about Chicago sportswriter PJ (Jordana Spiro) and her pals on Sundays opposite such sky-high-profile cable competition as Keeping Up with the Kardashians and Mad Men — whose costar Joel Murray, aka rehabbed alky Freddy Rumsen, guested on Boys as the owner who sold the gang's hangout, Crowley's, to Brando (Reid Scott) in the season finale.

Rachael Harris, Cougar Town
Rachael Harris stops by Cougar Town to play Shanna, who is kind of the anti-cougar. Shanna and husband Frank (Spin City's Alan Ruck) used to socialize with Jules and ex-husband Bobby, but grew apart after the Cobbs' divorce. On Wednesday's episode (9:30/8:30c, ABC), Jules finds out why Shanna is so "disapproving." The 41-year-old Harris — who has made a name for herself in places as varied as Showtime's Fat Actress, ABC's short-lived Notes from the Underbelly, the hit feature film The Hangover, Christopher Guest movies and The Jay Leno Show — tells TVGuide.com how she uses the Internet to hone her comedy chops, how long Shanna will be sticking around Cougar Town and why she's always cast as kind of a man eater.
