Chester's Mill is having one crazy summer — and things are about to get even wilder on the CBS sci-fi hit Under the Dome. Not only is there a killer running amok, but supplies are running dangerously low and the dome seems to be sending out messages that the trapped townsfolk had better start listening to...or else.
"Is the dome bringing Armageddon to Chester's Mill?" asks executive producer Neal Baer of the recent infestation of crop-killing caterpillars and freakish weather events. "Or are the plagues and...
Under The Dome
When Under the Dome returns (Monday, 10/9c,CBS), the residents of Chester's Mill are still trapped beneath the giant dome that is supposedly there for their protection — this according to some otherworldly force that appeared to the Monarch Julia (Rachelle Lefevre) and the Four Hands via a vision of deceased Alice (Samantha Mathis) in the finale.
It's been two weeks since the mysterious dome descended upon the town, with the possibility of escape becoming increasingly unlikely. However, there might be hope for at least one character, if not more, to make their way outside the dome. "This is the search to get out," executive producer Neal Baer tells TVGuide.com of Season 2. "This is the season of new mysteries that unfold and one of those new mysteries will be if there is a way out."

Chris O'Dowd and Tom Bennett
It can't be easy to learn that one's ancestor is a literal horse's ass. But sad-sack Londoner Tom Chadwick takes such news in stride, again quite literally, as he acquires his great-grandfather's horse costume from a long-ago pantomime show, and after trying the rear end on for size, adds it to his collection of quirky family keepsakes.
HBO's droll-to-the-point-of-precious and occasionally delightful Family Tree (Sunday, 10:30/9:30c) follows Tom on an offbeat personal odyssey into his cloudy lineage. "In our clan, family is what disappears when you're not looking at it," says his retired dad, who keeps busy inventing useless objects like a fan for shoe trees. The dad is played by Michael McKean, who like the rest of the cast often talks directly into the camera, mock-documentary/improvisation style. The casting and the format are two of the more obvious signs that Tree is a Christopher Guest production.
Sherry Stringfield, D.B. Woodside

Sherry Stringfield is returning to ER, a source close to the deal has confirmed to TVGuide.com.
Stringfield's participation is the latest in a slew of alums who have signed off to send off the show in its final season, a group that already includes Anthony Edwards, Julianna Margulies and George Clooney.
Stringfield played Dr. Susan Lewis on NBC's medical drama from 1994-1996 and then returned to the show in 2001 for another four seasons. No word on how Dr. Lewis will reappear this time.

House is my favorite show, but I am getting sick of this season's Thirteen-centered storylines. When will we see more of Wilson, who has been woefully underused? — Gillian
MATT: Personally, I'm (Olivia) Wilde for Thirteen, partly because her portrayer gives great quotes on the red carpet (and, ahem, is definitely not chilly). But I hear your woe, and can promise that Robert Sean Leonard has meaty stuff coming up later this season, only some of which has to do with Wilson's long-lost brother. Also, for what it's worth (and as hinted at this week), we'll also be spending a bit more time with Peter Jacobson's Taub.
I hear that either Hayden Panettiere or Ali Larter wants to be released from her Heroes contract. Is this true? — Brian
TIM: One of the key Heroes dies at the end of this volume, so that would be an easy out. But Larter ...
