The semifinal is set as Dancing with the Stars cuts one more couple. Which pair fell short of the final four? Find out below! Plus: The College Dance Championship kicks off and DanceCenter returns!
Tuesday's episode of Lost answered a lot of questions, but ultimately felt like a padded hour, an unnecessary detour from the action this late in the game. "Across the Sea" fills in the backstory of Jacob and the Man in Black, and how their relationship with a third person has shaped their island existence. It's a rhetorically rigorous journey, what with so many things having been said rather than done. Let's see what we learned.

With networks set to announce their fall TV lineups next week, TVGuide.com has the scoop on which pilots stand the best chance of flourishing next season. From medical dramas and romantic comedies to spies and Shatner, here's our take on 14 solid bets for the fall:
It's double the work on Dancing with the Stars! The remaining five couples must perform two individual dances: a ballroom routine and a Latin routine with an era theme. Did anyone ace them both? Find out below!
V - Morena Baccarin, Laura Vandervoort, Elizabeth Mitchell
In Tuesday's tension-filled episode of V, Anna (Morena Baccarin) and Erica (Elizabeth Mitchell) finally come face-to-face as they investigate who assaulted Lisa (Laura Vandervoort). Little does Erica know, she's working with the initial attacker. So what are Anna's motives in breaking her daughter's legs? TVGuide.com caught up with Vandervoort to get the dish on how Lisa's feelings for the Evans family just may save their lives, and what's in store for the "Earth-shattering" finale cliff-hanger...
Evan Lysacek has to do a futuristic cha-cha on Monday's Dancing with the Stars, but he doesn't want to look too far ahead after that. "I'm having the time of my life. I'm already starting to dread the morning I wake up and I don't have a new dance to learn and I don't have a performance that night on the ice," the Olympic champ, who's simultaneously touring with Stars on Ice, tells TVGuide.com. "It's really like a family here and it's something I never really had in skating because it's such an individual sport. I'm so glad I'm doing both." Lysacek, who got the season's first perfect score of 30 last week, is doubling up on dances too, as he must also perform a waltz. Does he feel pressure to maintain perfection?
Michael Trucco knows a thing or two about being "that guy" in a TV love triangle.
Castle's Stana Katic: Beckett's ready to tango with new love interest
Trucco's Samuel Anders came between romantic leads Kara "Starbuck" Thrace (Katee Sackhoff) and Lee "Apollo" Adama (Jamie Bamber) on Battlestar Galactica. Now on Castle, Trucco plays Detective Tom Demming, an increasingly powerful wedge between Rick Castle (Nathan Fillion) and Detective Beckett (Stana Katic).
But Trucco tells TVGuide.com there's more to his role on Castle than creating another obstacle to a Castle-Beckett pairing. "It's an interesting plot device to enter in a third wheel — it always helps raise the stakes for all parties involved. But often, those characters can be one-dimensional," Trucco says. "What I like about Demming is he's actually a good guy. There's some sincerity in this character and I think he's genuine in his feelings for Beckett.
"He checks with Castle first," Trucco continues, recalling one of his character's first scenes...
On tonight's episode of Desperate Housewives, Lynette finally realizes that her newly adopted son, Eddie, has a screw loose. In her desperation in the wake of the arrival of Patrick Logan, Angie thinks it's a good idea to seek advice from the most self-centered person she knows, so... Gaby to the rescue! Susan and Mike's financial problems deepen. And Bree tries a time-honored tradition to get Sam out of her employ -- and her life: bribery!
I'll post a full recap later. In the meantime, please use this space to post your comments about "The Ballad of Booth."

Hope you had a great week!
First, I want to address Elisabeth Hasselbeck's comments about Erin. I've gotten lots of comments on Twitter about it. They were just unnecessary and insensitive, simple as that. I'm the first person to say that everybody has the right to an opinion. I'm clearly one of the most opinionated people, but it's one thing to criticize to somebody's job and it's another to make ...
