Jet McCoy, Cord McCoy
Jet and Cord McCoy's never-say-die attitude helped them make Amazing Race history earlier this season when they became the first team to jump from last to first with a Speed Bump. But the cowboys/brothers couldn't make one last comeback when it mattered most in the finale, falling to Dan and Jordan. "We thought we could catch up to them right up until we came out on the tunnel and saw them on the mat already," Jet, 30, tells TVGuide.com. "There was obviously disappointment that we were second, but you take the bad with the good. We had a great time and feel like we ran a great Race." See what else they say about the infamous cut-in-line, if they tried to move up to first class and why Cord, 29, had "a lot of fun" at the virtual reality task.
Sean Murray and Pauley Perrette, NCIS
On Tuesday's NCIS (8/7c on CBS), Abby Sciuto (Pauley Perrette) takes a rare trip outside her lab, and her visit to Mexico could mean trouble for Gibbs (Mark Harmon).

Abby is invited to speak at a symposium in Mexico about cold-case forensics, using real evidence from old cases. "Abby is in Mexico simply to teach, but she does make some cold-case discoveries while she's there," Perrette tells TVGuide.com. "She makes a few discoveries, actually, that come back around to other parts of our NCIS story lines that have been building for years."
In particular, Abby finds a bullet she believes she can trace, which makes Gibbs, who murdered a Mexican drug dealer responsible for the death of his wife and daughter, more than a little nervous...
Without Robin, the now-four-person gang decides to crash a snooty party featuring such guests as Arianna Huffington, Peter Bogdanovich, and New York Times crossword editor Will Shortz (all appearing as themselves). Ted, of course, feels right at home among these opera-going, wine-tasting, poetry-reciting intellectuals. Meanwhile, Barney wants to go to a robot wrestling sporting event, and Marshall and Lily start to talk about extending their family...
Becki Newton, Alex O'Loughlin
With networks set to announce their fall TV lineups next week, TVGuide.com has the scoop on which pilots stand the best chance of flourishing next season. From medical dramas and romantic comedies to spies and Shatner, here's our take on 14 solid bets for the fall:
The Good Wife
After seven months, the battle for the junior associate position at Stern, Lockhart & Gardner will finally come to an end on Tuesday's episode of The Good Wife (10/9c, CBS). Win or lose, things are going to get even more complicated for Alicia Florrick (Julianna Margulies).
"She's worried that she's going to lose the battle with Cary, so she comes to...
Dan Pious, Jordan Pious
It became a battle of the brothers at the end of The Amazing Race 16, with the Rhode Island-bred Daniel, 25, and Jordan Pious, 23, edging out cowboys Jet and Cord for the $1 million — without any advantage from cutting in line at the airport. "We were in the same exact plane at the same exact time, all middle seats in three consecutive rows. Caite and Brent, who were first to get tickets, were in the row furthest from the front," Dan tells TVGuide.com. "If people want to be up-in-arms about cutting, I can understand that, but don't think that it affected the Race. ... And Cord did a good job of getting revenge and distracting me at the virtual challenge, so I guess we're even." It was, rather, the move up to first class that ensured the Piouses a lead that they never relinquished. So how did they smooth-talk their way up front?
The Amazing Race

For most of her time on Survivor: Heroes vs. Villains, Danielle DiLorenzo was one of the game's strongest players. She had a tight alliance with Parvati Shallow and Russell Hantz from the get-go, she performed well in reward and immunity challenges and held her own when Amanda Kimmel almost stole her clue to a hidden immunity idol. But 30 days on the island of Samoa eventually got to her, in the form of a teary breakdown during Tribal Council when Russell questioned her loyalty to Parvati. Danielle insisted she had remained honest to her allies. The 28-year-old DiLorenzo spoke with TVGuide.com about Russell's bold move to try to turn Parvati against her, her emotional episode and what was in store for Russell had she stayed...
Omar Gooding, Miami Medical
Warning: The following story contains important details from Friday's episode of Miami Medical. If you haven't seen the episode, read at your own risk.
For a freshman drama like Miami Medical, putting a main cast member in mortal danger so early in the series' run is a risky move. But show creator Jeffrey Lieber tells TVGuide.com it was a necessary one.

"One of the things we found out from doing research is that one of the particularities of trauma is that because there's so much violence involved, the rate of doctors and nurses who are harmed is much higher than in the ER and the regular medical profession," Lieber says. Because of that — and some contractual issues that required Omar Gooding to miss a few episodes — Lieber & Co. decided ...
Once a cheater, always a cheater? That's what the Survivor Villains thought when it came to new ally Candice Woodcock, who flipped sides and voted with the Villains to stay in the game. Despite her best efforts to show her loyalty, some of her new allies, particularly Jerri Manthey, believed someone who switched sides that easily could not be trusted. Combine those suspicions with the betrayal felt by the two other remaining Heroes, Colby Donaldson and Rupert Boneham, and Candice was swiftly voted out. Woodcock, 27, spoke with TVGuide.com about why she regrets voting Amanda out, the real story behind her alliance with...
