Senior editors Matt Webb Mitovich and Mickey O'Connor answer your questions!I'm glad to hear that Desperate Housewives' Gaby is staying frumpy, if only for a bit longer. Any other scoop to share? JillMatt: I almost forgot that I had gleaned this from my TCA party talk with exec producer Bob Daily (I blame my third Cape Cod...), but now here it is: Bree won't make do with just one kid for long. We will see Joy Lauren back as Danielle Van De Camp very soon and not in flashback.At House's TCA session all I saw was Hugh Laurie, Robert Sean Leonard, Omar Epps and the "new team."

On HBO's Deadwood, which premieres its third season this Sunday at 9 pm/ET, amid all the badasses and noblemen, weasely E.B. Farnum does his best to stay out of Swearengen's crosshairs while keeping watch over (and occasionally swindling folks at) the Grand Central hotel. William Sanderson, who plays Farnum, spoke with TVGuide.com about adding the daft Deadwooder to his résumé; and teased what's ahead in the new season.
TVGuide.com: I had to laugh at the pitch your publicist e-mailed over, talking about your career playing "simpleminded backwoods men and snide ne'er-do-wells."
William Sanderson: Well, there is a reason for that, a
