I need some Good Wife scoop! Anything on Kalinda? — Brittany
ADAM:
Archie Panjabi says viewers will get new insight into Kalinda's relationship with Will. "The two of them look out for each other a lot," Panjabi says. "I think we'll definitely get to see that in Season 3. They used to spend a lot of time drinking in bars." Given what we now know about Kalinda's history with Peter, we certainly hope nothing happened after those drinks.

Please give us scoop on the new season of Dexter! — Mitchell

4 Reasons Why Free Agents Is an Anti-Romantic Comedy

Free Agents, Hank Azaria and Kathryn Hahn

Free Agents starts where most romantic comedies end — in bed.

In the opening moments of the new NBC sitcom — based on the British series of the same name — co-workers Alex (Hank Azaria), recently divorced, and Helen (Kathryn Hahn), whose fiancé died, are struggling with postcoital etiquette after their one-night stand, which, to hear the stars tell it, lets you know right off the bat that this is not your average love story.

Survivor: South Pacific: 3 Reasons We Already Want to Vote the Vets Off the Island

Benjamin "Coach" Wade, Ozzy Lusth

Blindside me once, shame on you. Blindside me twice, shame on me. Blindside me three times? That's what it's coming to on Survivor.

The reality series comes back for Season 23 with two new returning favorites, Oscar "Ozzie" Musth and Benjamin "Coach" Wade, in tow. But after the success of Heroes vs. Villains in 2010 and "Boston Rob" Mariano's applauded Road to Redemption last spring, recruiting beloved former players for another tour of duty is becoming standard practice for the aging competition series. But is it really the right move? As much as we enjoy watching the Russell Hantz's and Jerri "Black Widow" Manthey's have to face (and sometimes apologize for) their past power moves and manipulations, are these familiar faces really adding to the game or detracting from it? We look at three reasons it's time to throw the vets' buffs in the fire once and all... read more

Brazilian Waxing, Bleeping and Babies: 15 Personal Questions with Up All Night's Will Arnett

Up All Night

When you think of Will Arnett, still fondly remembered as the clueless Gob Bluth in Arrested Development, the word "parent" isn't the first word that necessarily jumps out at you.

Good thing parenting isn't exactly the subject of his new comedy Up All Night, where he stars as a new dad. See, despite what the trailers are telling you, it's not so much about the baby, as it is about new parents Regan (Christina Applegate) and Chris' (Arnett) reaction to it — and they don't exactly want to give up their super social lifestyle, or, um, occasional curse words.

TVGuide.com asked Arnett 15 personal and professional questions, including how Up All Night compares to his short-lived Fox comedy Running Wilde, and the show's Jersey Shore connection... read more

Simon Cowell's X Factor Will Have Drunks in the Audience! Plus: Scherzinger Changes Accents

The X Factor

U.S. audiences are more vocal — and more drunk! — says Simon Cowell. At least, that's been his experience filming the American version of his British hit The X Factor.

In his new singing competition, the auditions were all shot before a live studio audience. "When they like someone, they let you know. And they certainly let you know when they disagree with you," Cowell said Tuesday during a conference call with reporters. In fact, rowdy crowds saved more than one contestant from elimination.

Ratings: Monday Night Football Wins the Night; Dr. Oz Wins the Day

Cameron Wake and Tom Brady

Monday Night Football had a big night in the ratings, just like Tom Brady on the field.

The regular season debut of the venerable franchise on ESPN decimated the competition on both cable and broadcast television, attracting 14.57 million viewers for the NFL game between the New England Patriots and Miami Dolphins and a 6.3 rating among 18-to-49-year-olds. Brady made the hot South Florida night hotter, passing for 517 yards — merely the fifth-best in league history. And with the promise of more excitement like that, ESPN is sure to lure solid numbers throughout the season.
