What's Cristina up to when Grey's Anatomy returns? — Jenni
ADAM: She won't be great. While Cristina is usually the rock the other docs lean on, her reaction to the traumatic season finale rampage takes longer to sort out than some of the other surgeons. In fact, when she is finally cleared to go back into surgery, an accident in the OR freaks her out so much that she collapses into a sobbing mess on the floor.

If you're an actor who lands a lead role on a TV series, you can count on a big payday. But it won't be as big as it used to be.
Network and studio executives tell TV Guide Magazine they've adopted a get-tough policy on salaries for stars of the new fall shows. While the salary for a lead has been $150,000 to $200,000 per episode in recent years, most deals for stars of new series were between $75,000 and $125,000. "No one broke the bank on anything this year," says one former studio head.

Married TV writers Liz Garcia and Josh Harto found themselves with some time off during the writers' strike of 2007-08, so they decided to hit the road. With their show, Cold Case, on hiatus, they drove cross-country, including through Memphis, where Josh Harto used to take trips with his country musician grandfather. They fell in love with the city, and the idea for a TV show was born. Memphis Beat, starring Jason Lee as loveable, Elvis-obsessed Detective Dwight Hendricks, debuted on June 22 and focuses on its characters as much as the crime of the week. Liz talked to TVGuide.com about the show's origins and what's to come this season....
