Inside the Actors Studio (Monday, 7/6c, Bravo)
Even in those moments when it succumbs to fawning self-parody, there's something about James Lipton's craft/career-focused Q&A's that I find irresistibly endearing. (May have something to do with my nostalgia for what Bravo was like before all of those heinous Real Housewives took over the network.) This week, this marginalized show — notice how it airs outside prime-time parameters — welcomes its first-ever graduate from the Actors Studio Drama School at Pace University. Said successful alum being Bradley Cooper, beloved by TV fans for his work on Alias but now busy with a film career including The Hangover, Wedding Crashers and the new Limitless opposite Robert De Niro.

March Madness is upon us, and this year it's particularly mad.
For the first time ever, the NCAA is televising every game live. With staggered starting times over four networks — CBS, TNT, TBS, and truTV — it's going to get complicated. Do you know how to find truTV in your neck of the woods?

Don't sweat it. TVGuide.com has launched a special NCAA tournament section to sort through all the noise. We've launched dedicated pages for every team and game; bookmark your favorites and you'll always know when they're playing.
See all the first-week games here. Some of the most anticipated early matchups include:
Jensen Ackles and Jared Padalecki
The Grim Reaper is hitting Supernatural again.
As Sam (Jared Padalecki) and Dean (Jensen Ackles) prepare to take on Eve, aka the Mother of All (Julia Maxwell), executive producer Sera Gamble told TVGuide.com at Sunday's PaleyFest that the season finale will feature at least two unexpected deaths.
"There will definitely be deaths," said Gamble, who penned the penultimate episode for Season 6. "I would say that...
Will The Mentalist's Grace Van Pelt (Amanda Righetti) make it down the aisle with FBI agent Craig O'Laughlin (Eric Winter) by season's end? The show will keep fans — and third wheel Wayne Rigsby (Owain Yeoman) — guessing all the way through May's two-hour, Red John-themed finale.
How I Met Your Mother
In 2007, ABC gave Lost a multiyear pick-up and set an end date for the series. Last week, CBS renewed How I Met Your Mother for two years, but made no mention of a series finale for the mystery-laden sitcom.
How I Met Your Mother gets two more seasons
The order is not surprising: Mother is a solid hit, the cast was already contracted through eight seasons, and Carter Bays told TVGuide.com in the fall that he and co-creator/executive producer Craig Thomas had plotted out the rest of the series beyond its current Season 6. But now that the pick-up is official, will the next two seasons also be its last two?
Bays answers our burning questions about the show's future, why he doesn't feel pressure to introduce Mrs. Ted Mosby, and what's in store for the rest of the season.
Could Pretty Little Liars' Spencer be "A"?
"That's my favorite thing to wonder, actually," Troian Bellisario tells TVGuide.com.
As the girls have been working toward figuring out who killed their friend Alison, they've found one of their own has come under suspicion. All season long, the mysterious "A" has been one step ahead, and has gone even further in recent episodes to pin Spencer as a possible murderer. Bellisario says she hopes her character has a bit of a shady history.

The actress also says that looking guilty has led to a new understanding for the other Rosewood resident, Toby, who has been through the same thing.
Kendra Wilkinson may be the second of Hef's former girls next door to compete on Dancing with the Stars, but don't think she turned to Season 8 alum Holly Madison for pointers. "I'm very stubborn like that," Wilkinson tells TVGuide.com. "If anyone tries to tell anything to me, I shut them up immediately. There's only one piece of advice I'll take and that's from [partner] Louis [van Amstel]." So how are rehearsals going for the self-proclaimed tomboy with zero dance experience?
