So is this flu really the villain of the season on The Walking Dead? — Damon
NATALIE: I take it that that was sarcasm, but you will be surprised to see how far this illness will spread. "There's a point where the number of able-bodied people is one or two," Lauren Cohan tells me. "It gets to a point where Maggie is the only person who can actually fight." Ruh-roh.
I can't believe how Sunday's The Good Wife ended! What can you say about this week's episode? — Helen

Hotch will see dead people on Wednesday's Criminal Minds, but Thomas Gibson won't be watching — at least for now.
"It may be a little tough for me to watch with Haley and Foyet returning. It will be a while before I do," Gibson tells TVGuide.com. "Plus, I don't know how many people want to see the guy who killed their wife again!"
Bubble shows: Which will survive?
He may not want to, but Hotch will come face-to-face with George "The Reaper" Foyet (C.

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.

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?
