Mike and Molly
I feel like I'd follow Melissa McCarthy to the ends of the earth — and not just in terms of television watching. I first discovered her in a bit part when she stole the scene she was in with Scott Wolf (or was it Jay Mohr?) in a little movie called Go. She didn't come back onto my radar until Gilmore Girls, but what a great way to make a return. Her adorable and somewhat neurotic and accident-prone Sookie St. James was a revelation. Lauren Graham and Alexis Bledel weren't half bad either. Kidding, kidding. They were awesome. I loved that show. Next she spent some time with Christina Applegate on Samantha Who? and now she's where she belongs: in a lead role. It's about time.
The uncovering of skeletons from Jethro Gibbs' past left his father in danger in NCIS' Season 7 finale. As Season 8 begins, everyone close to Gibbs may have a target on his or her back.
Executive producer Shane Brennan tells TVGuide.com that Gibbs Sr. (guest star Ralph Waite) will be front-and-center through the first episode and that his actions will give viewers an idea where Gibbs (Mark Harmon) gets his fighting spirit.

"It's a big opening," Brennan says. "I advise every fan of the show to sit down and watch that first minute. It's explosive. We finish up that story, and we'll get back into showing NCIS as the team it's always been."
The bad news, however, is that Gibbs' team members feel threatened ...

Scott Caan, Hawaii Five-0
Fans of the original Hawaii Five-O know all about the setting, the theme song and that famous catchphrase. But they don't know the new Danno ... yet.
Following his recent turn on Entourage, Scott Caan steps into the iconic role of Danny Williams on the rebooted Hawaii Five-0, premiering Monday at 10/9c on CBS. The 34-year-old actor injects a new dose of humor into the character first made famous 42 years ago thanks mostly to the line, "Book 'em, Danno."
Hawaii Five-0: Then and now
Here's a few things Caan and series' producer Peter Lenkov think you should know about their take on...
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.

"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 ...
Wendy Jo Desmidt-Kohlhoff
The speculation began as soon as NFL legend Jimmy Johnson joined Survivor: Nicaragua: Wouldn't his fame make him a target? In the first episode, things didn't work out exactly as viewers might have expected. Instead of hurting him, Johnson's fame helped break the ice among his teammates — except the one who didn't know recognize him. Wendy DeSmidt-Kohlhoff, a 48-year-old goat rancher, says her lack of awareness may have cost her — and contributed to her being sent home...
How 'bout that Jimmy Johnson! Survivor returned for its 21st season last night, and this year's most buzzed about contestant, two-time Super Bowl winning coach Jimmy Johnson, was unsurprisingly front and center for the majority of the hour. The battle lines were drawn between ages, and we got a taste of this year's Medallion of Power, as well as a clue to this season's first...
