Castle Premiere: How Will Castle and Beckett Fare on Opposite Sides?

Nathan Fillion and Stana Katic, Castle

In the opening moments of Castle's Season 3 premiere, crime-solving partners and star-crossed lovers Castle and Beckett have their guns pointed at one another.

We knew there'd be some tension after Castle (Nathan Fillion) left Beckett (Stana Katic) to run off to the Hamptons with his ex-wife (Monet Mazur) at the end of last season. But this?

While everything may not be as dire as it first seems, there is definitely some bad blood to be worked out.

"I knew after the way we ended last season, we couldn't just have Castle walk back into the precinct and say, 'Hey, I'm back,'" creator/executive producer Andrew Marlowe tells TVGuide.com of the premiere, which features Castle as a murder suspect... read more

How Will "Huddy" Impact House?

House

After six seasons of sexual tension and House's ever-so-crude attempts at flirtation, he and Cuddy have finally given in and are giving the relationship thing a whirl. But after witnessing Huddy finally share a passionate kiss at the end of last season's finale of House, you can't help but wonder, "Where do we go from here?"

House casting: Candice Bergen to play Cuddy's Mom

"We're going to play it through," says executive producer Katie Jacobs, who adds that the time finally felt right to explore the relationship. "It felt wrong that ... read more

How I Met Your Mother's Carter Bays: Season 6 Will Be Our Best One Yet

How I Met Your Mother

Barney Stinson is never shy about using superlatives on How I Met Your Mother, but the man who writes those lines, creator/executive producer Carter Bays, exercises greater restraint.

Except when describing the upcoming sixth season.

Check out photos from How I Met Your Mother

"Honestly, I never say stuff like this, but I think this is will be our best season yet," Bays tells TVGuide.com. "I'm going to call my shot and say that. At the end of last season, I think we were all feeling really old, and there's been kind of a rejuvenation around here. I think a lot of it has to do with the stories of the season."

After two seasons primarily of stand-alone episodes, the time-jumping sitcom will ...

Catch Him If You Can: Lone Star's James Wolk on the Art of the Con

James Wolk

It's a provocative premise: In Fox's Lone Star, Bob Allen has been raised a Texas con man, grifting through life until he falls in love for real — twice. Now he wants to go straight, without losing either woman, or the worlds they live in (respectively, an oil-rich dynasty in Houston, and a tight-knit small town in Midland.)

Video: Lone Star cast talks about the pilot

Following someone leading a double life on TV can be done — see: Don Draper, Dexter, Nurse Jackie — but it can be tricky. Will Lone Star be a 22-episode tease? Will his ruse never fall apart? Will his wives never meet? And if they do, does the show morph into something else? Series star James Wolk talks to TVGuide.com about taking on his first major role (and changing his professional name to go with it), playing the sociopath you root for, and what he thinks of the show's super-sexy ad campaign. ...

Dancing with the Stars Feels the Pressure, Gets Ready to Step It Up

Dancing With The Stars

Tom Bergeron felt the pressure. So did Brooke Burke.

After Dancing with the Stars' surprisingly strong Season 10 — highlighted by beating American Idol in the ratings for the first time — the co-hosts are well aware that the season will be tough to follow, let alone top.

"I think it surprised even us how strong we came out the gate last season and how well it held," Bergeron tells TVGuide.com. "It sort of became the man-bites-dog story because ...

Keck's Exclusives: Friday Night Lights' Reverend Smash?

Friday Night Lights

When Friday Night Lights brings back its starting season lineup before the big 2011 series finale, the Panthers will be missing one beloved player. Turns out Gaius Charles, so great as Brian "Smash" Williams, has embraced God over football and is pursuing a masters degree in divinity.

"He and I used to text, but he has fallen off the radar," reports Lone Star's Adrianne Palicki, who will bring Tyra back to town... read more

The New Season in Review: Monday Madness

Lone Star, The Event

Forget surviving Premiere Week. Just making it through Monday is going to take nearly superhuman endurance this season. So many diverse and worthy choices, I almost won't miss The Big Bang Theory being shuffled off to Thursdays.

Let's start with the new, and in each case, I'll reprint my Fall Preview blurb with some additional comments. And then on to the handful of returning favorites I've been able to screen in advance.

From the top, my favorite new drama: Fox's Lone Star (9/8c). "This fall's best and most original drama taps a gusher of intrigue and twisty romance, with star-is-born James Wolk the most irresistible con man since Lost's Sawyer. Where is this story going? Can't wait to find out."

To elaborate: Newcomer James Wolk... read more

Matt's Picks: September 20-23

Glee

Lone Star (Monday, 9/8c, Fox)
My favorite new drama of the fall season is a provocative and twisted romance with a touch of Dallas-style oil intrigue, as a con man (charmer James Wolk) juggles a double life with a rich wife in Houston and a down-home sweetie in a small town where he's pulling a swindle. How long can he get away with it? We'll see. The show faces competition from NBC's heavily hyped conspiracy thriller-fantasy-adventure hybrid The Event, cloaked in mystery and hobbled by a convoluted time-jumping script. But Jason Ritter as the everyguy hero embroiled in the madness is so likable you can't help but want to tune in next week to see what happens. DVR alert... read more
