Phoebe Tonkin

The Secret Circle's Faye may be labeled the show's resident bad girl, but star Phoebe Tonkin insists that's she just misunderstood. "She's not really evil; she's just misguided and pushes people to their limits without realizing what the consequences would be," Tonkin tells TVGuide.com.

The Big Bang Theory Boss: Raj and Penny's Hookup Is Karma for Leonard

Big Bang Theory

Of all the possible Big Bang Theory couplings, do any of them make for stranger bedfellows than Raj and Penny?

"I really don't think so! Especially if my reaction means anything," executive producer Steve Molaro tells TVGuide.com. "I remember Chuck [Lorre], Bill [Prady] and I were in the writers' room breaking the season finale and that story of [Raj and Penny sleeping together] came up.

The Office: Who Should Be the New Branch Manager?

John Krasinski, Ed Helms, Craig Robinson

Steve Carell is long-gone (but still without an Emmy!), James Spader is the new CEO of Sabre, which means there's just one tiny question for The Office to answer when the NBC comedy returns for Season 8. For those who missed the job listing, the branch manager position at Dunder Mifflin is open once again after Robert California (Spader) won the gig and managed to work his way up from branch manager to CEO in just a few months time. But who will it be? We weigh the pros and cons for the most likely in-house candidates:

Jim Halpert (John Krasinski)
Why He'll Get the Job: Jim is a great salesman, he's been the No. 2 in Scranton for several years and, lest we forget, he's one of the only sane people employed at Dunder Mifflin. Viewers have rooted for Jim since the beginning so why not put him in the hot seat and see what happens?
Why He Won't:
