For once, Richard Castle might not be the nerdiest person at a crime scene.
On Monday's Castle, Beckett (Stana Katic) and Castle (Nathan Fillion) investigate a murder that could be out of this world.

Dancing With The Stars
It was a long time coming. The season's first perfect 30 was finally awarded on Dancing with the Stars last week.

Brothers & Sisters
If you thought the Walkers had issues on Brothers & Sisters, wait until you see the Laurents in action.
"They may put the Walkers to shame," Gilles Marini, who plays Luc Laurent, tells TVGuide.com. "It is just pure drama, through and through. There's no other way to describe it. I don't think the Walkers have even dealt with something or someone like that before."

I just want to get this out of the way: Everything's cool with Carrie Ann. She's passionate and I'm passionate. We made up afterward. Everything's back to normal. I never expected it to get blown up like it did, but I guess it was like, "reality drama"! We talked after the show and everything's great now. The post-mortem is that ...
