Desperate Housewives is back for a seventh season, folks, and we've got ourselves a new Housewife. Vanessa Williams has joined the party, and she has a bit of a mean streak. Former neighbor Paul Young has returned, a free man, and surprisingly prison hasn't made him any less creepy... or treacherous. Susan is Fairview's own Donna Summer — she works hard for the money. Bree's new contractor has more than paint samples on his mind. Gaby and Carlos have dueling secrets. And Lynette, after giving birth to a basketball team, is too tired to defend her choices.
Dancing With The Stars, Derek Hough
After Jennifer Grey and Derek Hough topped the Dancing with the Stars leaderboard last week with a 24, rumblings about the Dirty Dancing star's so-called "dance experience" heated up again — an unfair dig at her, Hough tells TVGuide.com. "Would you ask Adrien Brody to play piano at Carnegie Hall? Or would you ask Hilary Swank to fight in a professional boxing match?" he says. "Jennifer learned to dance 23 years ago for that movie and she played a person who didn't know how to dance. She wasn't learning new routines and dancing live week in and week out. I can see why people think that, but they're not the same." In fact, the Emmy-nominated pro has a slightly more difficult path to a record third Mirrorball trophy as he must choreograph around Grey's neck injury. Find out how he plans to do that and more.
On the dusty expanse of suburbia that is Wisteria Lane, Vanessa Williams is ready to duel at 40 paces.
Desperate Housewives has always relied on a fun, trouble-making foil to shake up the staid suburban lives of the women of Wisteria Lane — think Edie, Mrs. Huber, Karl, may they all rest in peace. This season, ABC has employed a Wild West theme to announce the arrival of Renee Perry (Williams), who'll try on a (very chic) black hat. Executive producer Bob Daily introduces us to Renee, and tells us what all the other ladies — and at least one familiar gentleman — will deal with this season.
Brothers & Sisters
For the storytellers of Brothers & Sisters, jumping ahead a year in time offers a jolt of creative energy, but also poses a challenge for the season premiere.

"There are a lot of things we need to catch the audience up on, and there's a lot of closure we need to acknowledge and let the audience share in," executive producer David Marshall Grant tells TVGuide.com. "We are doing a lot to deal with that finale and get us into a place where we feel that we understand what happened and move beyond it, just as the Walkers are beginning to move beyond it."
Season 4 ended with a massive car crash that seemed to seal the fate of departing cast member Rob Lowe's Robert McCallister and left William Walker's ex-mistress Holly (Patricia Wettig) in similarly critical condition. Plus, Saul (Ron Rifkin) revealed that he was HIV-positive and Justin (Dave Annable) and Rebecca (Emily VanCamp) came to a crossroads in their young marriage.
The events of the finale are still very fresh in the minds' of the characters, but Grant says the jump in time will quickly allow them to move on and grow...
Hope you all enjoyed the premiere! What'd you think?
I thought our dance was great. It felt great. I think we carried out our plan: We came out strong, but are not the front-runner. I told Brandy that I don't want the pressure of having to be the best right away. We made our statement and we can continue ...

There's a new entanglement on Grey's Anatomy this season, and it's not a romantic one. Following the events of the finale, Owen (Kevin McKidd) — who has gone through, and is still living with, PTSD — will become a soundboard for many of the doctors, but none moreso than Derek (Patrick Dempsey), whose near-death experience will send him...
