Could you give me any scoop you have on Grey's Anatomy, ideally something about Mark and Lexie? I need my fix! — Frances
MATT: Does McSteamy "do" parents? That's the big question in the April 30 episode, when a now-sober Thatcher Grey invites his daughter and her new beau out to dinner. Now, just supposing that Mark is down for some dining, can the reformed cad put on a good show? And this just in: A source tells me that on Mer and Der's wedding day, airing May 7, the groom gifts his bride with (incurable romantic alert!) her first solo surgery. How that fits into a little blue Tiffany box, I do not know.
The past two seasons of CSI have ended with a cliff-hanger. Season 7 ended with Sara left in the Vegas desert by the Miniature Killer, and Season 8 ended with Warrick being accused of murder (and eventually murdered himself). Will Season 9 follow that same pattern? — Jocelyn
She Bangs! O'Keefe cozies up to Koothrappali.
What happens in Vegas ... apparently will be played for maximum comic effect when the boys of The Big Bang Theory cross paths with Prison Break alumna Jodi Lyn O'Keefe.
In the CBS hitcom's April 27 episode, Leonard and Koothrappali escort a heartbroken Wolowitz to Las Vegas. There, O'Keefe boots the geeks' hard drives as Mikayla, a "working girl" — and not in the Melanie Griffith vein.
Adele, Ugly Betty
Soul singer Adele will show up in a May episode of Ugly Betty, TVGuide.com has learned exclusively.

Law & Order: SVU
The good news: NBC has renewed Law & Order: SVU, its highest-rated drama, for an 11th season. The bad news: The network is threatening to replace Mariska Hargitay and Christopher Meloni, according to EW's Michael Ausiello.
This shocking development comes as the two leads have reportedly banded together to negotiate pay increases in the form of a share of the back-end profits. An NBC representative told TVGuide.com that it is their policy not to comment on talent negotiations. While a hard-line threat is a common tactic in salary negotiations, it seems unlikely that NBC would follow through with the firings.
But it raises the question: Could SVU exist without its two popular leads?
We are sad to report that the identity of the actor who is playing the mysterious Dr. William Bell on Fringe has leaked before he could make a surprise appearance on the season finale.
But we are very happy to report that we've confirmed the actor is Star Trek legend Leonard Nimoy! Nimoy's casting, as first reported by the FringeTelevision blog, which we hear is all but a done deal at this point, may finally put to rest all those fan-created conspiracy theories about Dr. Bell (He's a cyborg! He's Nina's prosthetic hand! He's Walter!).
Nimoy is no stranger to J.J. Abrams productions: He also reportedly reprises the role of Spock in a cameo for the wunderkind director's Trek reboot, which hits theaters on May 8. Scuttlebutt says he's a time-traveling, "from the future" Spock, who returns to help the young Spock (Heroes' Zachary Quinto).
Nimoy will first appear in the season finale, and will then recur throughout next season.
What do you think of Nimoy's casting? A fanboy's dream? Too nerdy?

The setup: When the discovery of a Marine's corpse becomes a matter of national security, Gibbs' team must ...
