American Idol has not even selected their top 10, but TV audiences are already buzzing about Simon Cowell's return to television after an ad for his new reality competition show, The X Factor, aired during the Super Bowl on February 6. Are you looking forward to Cowell's new show, or do you think there are too many reality competition shows on television already? Sound off in our poll below!

Question: I really like the new show The Chicago Code; I am from Chicago and also love the fact that it is shot on location here. My only issue with the show is Jennifer Beals' HORRIBLE attempt at a Chicago accent (and I love her). It is especially grating when she is narrating the story. I have lived in Chicago my whole life, and I can tell you that most people do not have that Dennis Franz (or the SNL characters') accent. That is a South Side thing and only a portion of the South Side actually talks that way. I will say that Jason Clarke not only nails the South Side accent but also the whole South Side mentality of a diehard White Sox fan who hates the Cubs (Sox fans are an angry bunch). Everyone I know that has watched the show has had the same reaction to her and it almost makes the show unwatchable. What do you think? Why can't they just let her talk normally?
Alex O'Loughlin and Larisa Oleynik
Talk about pressure. Larisa Oleynik debuts on CBS' Hawaii Five-0 on March 21 as CIA analyst Jenna "K" Kaye, then returns for the season's last two episodes — giving her three shows to prove herself worthy of being signed as a permanent team member.
Castle (Monday, 10/9c, ABC)
Who's that heroic looking interloper muscling into Beckett and Castle's turf? That would be former Heroes star Adrian Pasdar, guesting in a tense two-parter as a fed who takes over a murder investigation that exposes a conspiracy with calamitous implications for the city. (Sounds like a job for Jack Bauer, but those days are over.) In other sweeps stunt-casting news, over on CBS's Hawaii Five-0 in the same hour, Danno's brother comes to paradise, a hedonistic Wall Street broker played by comedian Dane Cook. A mad bomber is also on the loose, which might actually be a welcome diversion if Cook tries to do stand-up.
The Good Wife (Tuesday, 10/9c, CBS)
The great guest stars keep coming, but at least one represents a welcome comeback: Gary Cole reprising his role as Diane's ruggedly handsome and politically opposite sometimes-beau Kurt McVeigh. The ballistics expert returns as her client, after he's sued over testimony he gave in the murder trial of a newly exonerated cop killer. Also on deck in this busy episode: Jerry Stiller as a narcoleptic judge, and Ugly Betty's America Ferrera as the illegal nanny of Peter's campaign rival Wendy Scott-Carr, which puts her on Eli Gold's radar.
The Bachelor is getting close to the finale, and the remaining women are taking Brad to their hometowns. We took a look at the final four — Shawntel, Chantal, Emily and Ashley H — and sized up the competition.
Prince William Royal Wedding Invitation
