Is there such a thing as a "cheerleading scholarship"?
On the CW's new series Hellcats, Marti Perkins (Aly Michalka) — a pre-law student at the fictional Lancer University in Memphis — loses her academic scholarship, so she does what any gal with a hidden passion for handsprings might: lands a cheerleading scholarship on the school's squad. But does that actually exist?
As overlooked middle child Sue Heck on ABC's The Middle, 18-year-old Eden Sher has caught our attention, making us want to learn more about the girl behind the braces.
She used to have stage fright. "I was really shy when I was little and there was this mandatory school performance in first grade. I refused to go on, but my mom forced me and it was like, 'Click, love it!' Once I realized that I didn't die on stage, it was really great."

Castle's not going to like this one bit. On October 11th's Castle episode, he gets quite the surprise when Beckett's secret beau, Josh Davidson (Victor Webster), pops into the precinct.
"He's this big, mysterious, hunky guy who rides a motorcycle," says Webster. "But then you'll find out he's a cardiac surgeon as well — blue collar and white collar mixed into one!"
Law & Order: Los Angeles premiered to solid ratings last week, proving that the venerable franchise still resonates with viewers even after a coastal relocation, and creator Dick Wolf offers new details about the series' shifting L.A.-area locales and true-crime inspirations after its decidedly "Hollywood" debut.
Here's what happens when you get to do what you're good at: You own the ballroom. And that's exactly what happened when Michael Bolton stepped up to the microphone to sing the stirring "Hallelujah" in his signature raspy, wounded-soul voice. He may have been booted out by Dancing With the Stars voters last week who didn't care for his dancing, but the crowd on hand Tuesday night to see comedian Margaret Cho get the axe was enthralled by the return of Bolton, who probably would've scored three perfect 10s for his pipes. "I want to buy that record," said one woman sitting next to me, who was never a Bolton fan.

"Sometimes when a case gets resolved, there's always different aspects to consider. It's not always so cut-and-dried," he tells TVGuide.com "There are sometimes conditions that lend themselves to why these things happen. It's interesting when the stories have a little bit of a twist to them."
And Wednesday's episode (9/8c on CBS) has just that. When the BAU begins investigating a string of murders, Rossi (Mantegna) can't help but notice a similarity to a killer he chased over 25 years ago. Just when Rossi got close, the killer stopped, never to be heard from again — until now...

Say what you want about The Good Wife's Amber Madison — God knows, we certainly have — but that homewrecker sure knows how to put on a show.
Last night, Peter's former call-girlfriend popped up again in one of the episode's many high points (the debut of Scott Porter, Lou Dobbs' respectable cameo and Kalinda's dirt on Will among them) as the star of a viral music video that puts Obama Girl to shame. Cooing and gyrating like the straight-up hooker she is, the woman most likely to drive Alicia to break the law is apparently is now using her notoriety to support Peter's bid for state's attorney. And she's making no bones about his ability to serve the public. A few sample lyrics:
