Every week, senior editors Mickey O'Connor and Adam Bryant satisfy your need for TV scoop. Please send all questions to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Any news about what's coming up for Alex on Grey's Anatomy? — Emma
ADAM: He'll have a blink-and-you'll-miss-it moment of flirtation with Lexie in the Oct. 28 episode, but his primary focus will be on a young girl who needs her trachea replaced. And though Alex maintains his stint in pediatrics has nothing to do with him being a softie for the kids, you can judge for yourself when he sings a few bars of a Justin Bieber tune to calm his patient while she's getting an MRI.
I heard that the guy from Justified was going to be on The Office. What's that all about? —Carl
MICKEY: Show some respect, Carl! The man's name is Timothy Olyphant, and he'll play Danny on The Office. Danny's a really successful, kinda hot salesman who works for a Dunder Mifflin competitor...
Dancing With The Stars
If you thought that dancing to iconic TV theme songs on Monday night's Dancing With the Stars would give the performers a leg up because they already knew the music, you'd be wrong.
In fact, most the Dancing pros — and at least one star — were either too young or living in a foreign country when American television hits such as Bewitched and Hill Street Blues were on the air. "I had no idea what that song was," says pro Cheryl Burke, who was born in 1984 and danced to Hill Street Blues, which aired from 1981-1987...

Joshua Jackson and Anna Torv
Let's raise a glass (of something bubbly perhaps) to TV shows gone too soon: Here's to Arrested Development, Pushing Daisies, Moonlight, Freaks and Geeks, Veronica Mars, My So Called Life... we hardly knew ye. Here we are, just six weeks into the fall season, and we already have two more names to add to that list. (R.I.P., Lone Star and My Generation.) Which shows will be next? These 13 are in the most danger, due to low ratings, poor performances among younger viewers and other typical bad signs. Is your favorite show on the list?
On Sunday's episode of Desperate Housewives, Lynette thought it was high time that her older kids start helping to raise the younger ones. Bree and Renee exposed each others' vulnerabilities to compete for Keith's attention. Susan's secret job went unexpectedly public. Gaby located her biological daughter — and forged a questionable relationship with her. And a strange real estate deal put Paul Young's motives in the spotlight again.
This week's Modern Family found Claire and Mitchell teaming up to break judgmental news to one another's partners, Gloria and Jay hitting up a Quinceañera, and Haley schooling Alex in "Mean Girls 101."
The episode opens on Phil running a set of super cheesy (more than usual) jokes by the ever-dopey Luke, a perfect sounding board. We come to find that Phil is preparing for SCARB (Southern California Annual Realtors Banquet), which he has been tapped last minute to host. Claire reveals her fear that Phil is going to bomb at this dinner because he's fun, not funny. She blames herself for laughing at all of Phil's jokes, with her mouth, not her eyes. Moments later we see this in action as Claire uses her mouth to laugh while her eyes express something more along the lines of terror.
Hope you had a great week! Thanks for your votes!
I hope you do not mind, but I'm going to keep this week's blog brief. If you follow me on Twitter, you may know that my grandmother died on Wednesday. It's been a hard ...
On this week's episode of Grey's Anatomy, Meredith faces whether she can still have children after the miscarriage. Meanwhile, Lexie gets jealous of Meredith and April's friendship, Jackson tries to use his charms on Teddy to get ahead in the program, and it's Bailey's turn to help Cristina recover from the shooting.
