Shemar Moore is heading back to Genoa City.
The Criminal Minds star will return to The Young and the Restless in September for the first time since 2005, CBS announced this week.
Aquaman, Matt Lanter (inset)
Aquaman fans rejoice! The king of the seven seas is finally getting the spotlight in an upcoming animated movie from Warner Bros. Home Entertainment. Justice League: Throne of Atlantis, part of a series of DC Comics-themed movies, will trace the origin of Aquaman, who has been frequently ridiculed for his presumed obscure powers (like "talking to fish") and limited personality.
It's the little late-night talk show that could. Next week, Watch What Happens Live — the kooky, wildly unpredictable chat-fest hosted by Andy Cohen — marks its fifth year on the air. That's no small feat, considering its very humble beginning as a shoestring web series anchored by a largely unknown Bravo network executive. Since then, plenty has changed. For starters, Cohen has become a celebrity in his own right, with one bestselling book down and a second due in the fall. And the ratings have grown. About 334,000 people tuned in for the first televised episode in 2009; this spring, WWHL hit an all-time high of 3.9 million viewers, and it's up 7 percent over Conan this season. The star power is also higher wattage. Jennifer Lopez, Lady Gaga, Meryl Streep, Lindsay Lohan and Oprah Winfrey are among the guests who have partaken in the mélange of parlor games, free-flowing cocktails and general pop-culture revelry that's made the pint-size "Bravo Clubhouse" ground zero for countless watercooler moments. We sat down with Cohen in his Manhattan studio to relive the wild ride...

Garcia better watch out — Morgan's got a new baby girl in his life.
On Wednesday's Criminal Minds (9/8c, CBS), viewers will meet Morgan's (Shemar Moore) secret girlfriend Savannah (Rochelle Aytes). Her arrival shouldn't be too much of a shock to keen fans: Morgan casually mentioned that he had to cancel a date with his neighbor after a case came up in the season premiere.
25 unnecessary spin-offs
"I love that they put that line in the premiere," Moore tells TVGuide.com. "It sounds like a throwaway line and you might forget about it, but now, weeks later, it has significance."
Though Morgan briefly ...
A.J. Cook, Esai Morales
The BAU will get a new boss on Wednesday's Criminal Minds, but he's an old, familiar face to one person.
Unbeknownst to the rest of the team, JJ (A.J. Cook) has a history with newly instated section chief Mateo "Matt" Cruz (Esai Morales), with whom she worked at the State Department during her year away from the BAU. But don't think she recommended him for the vacated position (RIP Strauss!).

"She is completely shocked he's there. She is flipping out!" Morales tells TVGuide.com. "It's kind of funny. He plays ...
Criminal Minds showrunner Erica Messer can sum up Season 9 in one word: backstories.
"That's our focus this year," she tells TVGuide.com. "We're telling backstories and origin stories. We want to give everybody some insight into our heroes because we give insight to the unsubs every week. We're going to hit 200 [episodes] and it feels like, 'Let's tell the audience things they never knew before.'"
That involves an old beau for Garcia (Kristen Vangsness), The Reaper (C. Thomas Howell) and Haley (Meredith Monroe) returning (but not from the dead), and filling in the blanks of JJ's (A.J. Cook) year in the State Department during Season 6 — with some help from new BAU section chief Matt Cruz (Esai Morales), with whom she worked there. What's the deal with those two? How does Garcia's ex come back into the picture? Get the scoop on the season below:
Neil Patrick Harris
"This just in: No one in America is winning their Emmy office pool," quipped Neil Patrick Harris toward the end of Sunday's Emmy show, not long after The Colbert Report broke The Daily Show's 10-year winning streak as best variety series, The Voice took the reality-competition prize from The Amazing Race and The Newsroom's Jeff Daniels upset a crowded field of best-actor nominees, remarking, "Well, crap!" while chewing gum.
