Matt Bomer and Eliza Dushku
Long before he made fedoras and police anklets stylish on White Collar, Matt Bomer romanced Eliza Dushku on the Fox sci-fi series Tru Calling. But when White Collar creator and executive producer Jeff Eastin came calling for her to guest-star on the USA series, Dushku knew she wanted to channel another, very famous, on-screen couple for their reunion.
"I wanted a Mr. & Mrs. Smith vibe," Dushku tells TVGuide.com. "[I said] I'd love to come and be on it, but only if it's something that's really special and only if Raquel and Neal really have a Mr. & Mrs. Smith dance going on. It could be sexual at times, it could be violent and scary at times, but as long as it's intense, and he really responded to that."
Eliza Dushku to stir things up on White Collar

Hello MasterChef fans!
Monday night the remaining eight amateur cooks faced another stressful team challenge -- cooking for 200 hungry kids! Anyone who is a parent knows how frighteningly hard kids are to please. In fact, if you are a mother or father of three, that usually means you'll end up making three different things for dinner! This challenge really boiled down to knowing your customer. The pressure to win them over was intense, but in the end, the red team emerged victorious.
Initially we judges had serious concerns for the red team. Unable to wrap our heads around the idea of a fried chicken nugget burger, we feared they were making a huge mistake. It seemed a bit gimmicky and conjured up thoughts of deep fried Twinkies or Snickers bars -- or worse -- school cafeteria food! But the red team had strength in their ability to be flexible and take our constructive criticism seriously. Recognizing that their initial idea wasn't going to cut it, they had the good sense to make a change for the better and worked together as a unit to get it done. Christine didn't seem to be a terribly assertive or decisive leader, but at least she knew when to heed the advice of teammates, which unfortunately, is more than I can say for the blue team.
William H. Macy and Emmy Rossum, Shameless
We've seen Shameless' Frank (William H. Macy) fake his own death, but how would the Gallagher clan react if he actually kicked the bucket?
That answer may be found in the exclusive video below. In a deleted scene from the Season 1 episode "Frank the Plank," Debbie (Emma Kenney), the youngest Gallagher gal, becomes fearful when the police find a body matching Frank's description. (As you'll recall, Frank was actually in Canada after one of his benders.) So what's the tell-tale sign that this stiff is not Frank? Watch the video below to find out!
A new judge isn't the only big change coming to The Sing-Off this fall.
With NBC's decision to make the third season of The Sing-Off a weekly competition, kicking off Sept. 19 at 8/7c, it meant the show would more than double the number of episodes it produced. As a result, 16 groups will now compete (up from 10 last season) over 11 episodes (up from the five that aired over the course of one week).
Sara Bareilles is the new judge on NBC's The Sing-Off
Speaking to reporters Monday during NBC's fall TV previews, series executive producer Joel Gallen said groups will also be asked to sing in a number of new genres including
The Christina Applegate-Will Arnett sitcom Up All Night hasn't even premiered yet, but already co-star Maya Rudolph has gotten a promotion.
Speaking to reporters at the fall TV previews Monday, NBC Entertainment Chief Robert Greenblatt announced that portions of the pilot would be reshot to recast Rudolph's character, Ava, as a daytime talk-show host. "We decided to change the workplace altogether to give Maya a better platform to do her thing," Greenblatt said. Applegate will play a producer on Ava's show. (In the original pilot, Applegate and Rudolph played partners in a PR firm.)
Dan Stevens and Michelle Dockery
When Downton Abbey returns for its second season on Jan. 8, 2012 on PBS, the action will pick up two years after that fated garden party in which the Earl of Grantham (Hugh Bonneville) announced that England was at war with Germany.
During Sunday's preview of the hit British series, executive producer Gareth Neame confirmed that the action in the seven-episode second season will take place over two years, just like the first season. "The new series is a similar sort of span," he says. "We start in 1916. The war will come to a conclusion within this series, and the final episodes is the time after the war."
