Wait, was that really the Art Garfunkel on the March 1 episode of HBO's Flight of the Conchords (Sundays at 10 pm/ET)? Yes! Conchords' Jemaine Clement and Bret McKenzie wrote the episode, titled "Prime Minister," around him, and then prayed he'd say yes to a cameo. Garfunkel says he took "a leap a faith" and signed on without seeing a script.
In the episode, Jemaine and Bret book a gig as Simon and Garfunkel lookalikes, where they meet Karen (guest star Mary Lynn Rajskub, 24's Chloe), a woman who asks Jemaine on a date. The catch: He has to wear his Garfunkel costume, even when they have sex — she calls it "Garfunkling." We talked to its namesake about being immortalized by such weird comic geniuses, his recent reunion with Paul Simon and his quest for the perfect Simon and Garfunkel cover song.
Jeffrey Donovan, Burn Notice
After two seasons of looking for answers, Burn Notice's Michael Westen will finally come face-to-face with the person who promptly ended his career as a spy.
"The person who burned me, you're actually going to meet in the season finale [Thursday at 10 pm/ET, USA]," star Jeffrey Donovan said. "And he's going to have answers that will only satisfy people halfway. Dealing with any kind of covert organization, they can't ever spill the beans totally."
And the perils are aplenty ...
Sharon and Ozzy Osbourne
Ozzy Osbourne fans can soon put their air guitars away and turn on the tube: The rocker and his family have set a return date.
The Osbournes: Reloaded premieres March 31 (9 pm/ET, Fox), and promises to bring a new slew of antics with it. In a format that sounds part talk-show, part Jackass — plus many parts Ozzy — the new series will feature studio-audience interaction, shocking stunts and a brash sensibility. Highlights include such scintillating moments as Sharon Osbourne unveiling a stripping grandmother, her children Kelly and Jack bringing a ladies' man face-to-face with his exes and Ozzy spraying foam into the audience.
Reloaded marks the Osbournes' return to TV as a family for the first time since their MTV reality foray ended in 2005.
Bachelor creator Mike Fleiss says he approached both Melissa Rycroft and Molly Malaney to be the next Bachelorette before Jillian Harris, the third-place finisher on the Bachelor, was finally given the honor.
When Mesnick proposed to Rycroft three months ago, Fleiss began courting Malaney, he said Wednesday.

Law & Order: SVU Mariska Hargitay has been hospitalized for the third time in as many months. "She is undergoing routine tests and expects to be feeling better soon," a spokesperson for the NBC series told TVGuide.com in a statement.
Hargitay went to the hospital Wednesday morning after experiencing some discomfort relating to a pneumothorax — or collapsed lung — she suffered in January.
While the SVU shooting schedule has been shuffled to accommodate Hargitay's absence, a source on the set indicates that production will not be affected.
Brett Michaels, Jason Mesnick
The Bachelor's fellow reality dating star, Bret Michaels, has a few words of advice for the most-hated man in America.
"He definitely better hide his car because it's about to get keyed," said the Rock of Love star.
Just as Jason Mesnick dumped Melissa Rycroft after the Bachelor finale, Michaels was dumped in the first ROL season by Jess, the woman who had won his heart. She told him he made a mistake and they weren't right for each other.
And while burns suffered in front of the camera sting the worst, they're usually for the best, the Poison front-man believes.
"In a sick way, I think he ...
Jason Mesick and Melissa, The Bachelor
He's been branded "a bastard," but is The Bachelor's Jason Mesnick a liar?
Mesnick has said contractual obligations led to his messy public goodbye with former fiancée Melissa Rycroft at the taping of After the Final Rose Part One, which aired Monday. But the show's creator and producer tells TVGuide.com that Mesnick was under "no contractual obligation" to dump Rycroft on-air.
