CSI Serves Up Elisabeth Shue's "Dream Episode": Tennis Murder!

When Elisabeth Shue joined CSI last year, she had one request.

"[Producers] asked me if there were any ideas I had or anything I'd like to do that would be fun, and I said, 'We should do a murder at a tennis tournament and we'll get professional players to come on.' I was half-joking, but I did really want to do it and I didn't necessarily think they would do it," Shue, a diehard tennis (and Roger Federer) fan and avid player, tells "Cut to the beginning of this season and they say, 'Oh, that tennis episode is really coming along.' 'What?!' I was just shocked, but so, so excited."

Wimbledon Preview: Rafael Nadal Goes For History While Serena Willaims Mounts a Comeback

Fresh off equaling Bjorn Borg's six French Open titles, Rafael Nadal could match another of the Swede's impressive feats: winning on the French clay and Wimbledon grass back-to-back for the third time. "It's the toughest turnaround in tennis," says NBC analyst Mary Carillo, "but Nadal is something very special indeed." Borg did it from 1978-80, and the Spaniard took home both trophies in 2008 and last year... read more

Top Moments: Seeing Red on Top Chef, Vampire Diaries and Mad Men

Television this week needs an American Red Cross telethon, stat! Jax's blood boiled on Sons of Anarchy. Top Chef's Kelly had no time for first aid, so she encased her bloody finger in a rubber glove. New Jersey's Real Housewives displayed remarkable sangfroid with a less-than-genuine hug. Vampire Diaries' Caroline, and not Jeremy, changed her life by drinking vampire blood.
