NCIS: Los Angeles
Another Tuesday, another win for American Idol and Fox — but the viewer gap between Idol and NCIS is closing.
Down 12 percent from last Tuesday's episode, Idol's Los Angeles auditions still pulled in 24.2 million viewers, easily making it the night's most watched show, both in total viewers and in the adults 18-to-49 demographic. NCIS, while down slightly from its last original episode, was watched by 20.2 million viewers, the closest it has ever come to Idol's numbers on a given night.
NCIS: Los Angeles jumped 27 percent from its most recent new episode and drew 17.2 million viewers. A repeat of The Good Wife (10.3 million viewers) rounded out CBS' night and was good enough to help the network edge out NBC for second place...

What's the deal with Claire on Lost? That new promo seems to refute your little theory about her being a ghost. — O'Grady
MICKEY: Of the South Boston O'Gradys? You, sir, owe my great-uncle Shorty $472.68 for your outstanding bar tab! Your arrogance is as galling as your spendthriftiness! Ahem. While the image in question shows a distinctly Rousseau-esque Claire, it hardly proves that she's alive. But this might. Emilie de Ravin told us that she has a lot of scenes with Evangeline Lilly this season. Um, also there's this: "I think I'm alive, as far as I know," de Ravin told us. Remit payment at once, O'Grady!
What's coming up for Bailey on Grey's Anatomy? — Annie
ADAM: Chandra Wilson will be directing again — not so coincidentally, it's the episode where Bailey's fling with the new boy-toy anesthesiologist (Eli Stone's Jason George) heats up. We hear the episode is...
Castle is becoming one of ABC's new kings: The Nathan Fillion-led procedural continued its climb in the ratings Monday to mark a new high for the series.

The last episode of One Tree Hill ended with the arrival of "Hurricane Taylor," and this week picked right up in the middle of the storm. As Tree Hill's Shantel VanSanten (who plays Quinn) told me, Taylor and David really are together, and there's about to be some major family plot lines to come. So, let's get to recapping.
Life UneXpected - Britt Robertson
Week two of Life Unexpected brings some — wait for it — unexpected challenges. While Cate and Baze try to get their act together in order to get custody of their daughter, Lux deals with her friends shunning her for having parents now. Even though Cate desperately wants Lux in her care, what she says on the radio differs, leading to a blow up with Lux...
Whenever a new show premieres, audiences tend to pick out the couple that's meant to be together. On Life Unexpected, it's easy to choose Cate (Shiri Appleby) and Baze (Kristoffer Polaha) as soul mates because they have a child together, but executive producer Liz Tigelaar doesn't quite agree. Tigelaar discussed the story behind the new CW series, what's next for the relationships on Life, and what we'll learn about Lux (Brittany Robertson)...
Sam and Dean intentionally check in to a psychiatric hospital to hunt down the monster-of-the-week. While "pretending" to be nine kinds of crazy, the brothers have to face down some truths about their lives, as well as their mindset.
Welcome to the second half of Supernatural's fifth season. It's been a long two months, hasn't it? But new episodes are finally here. I'm proud to say I'm writing the recap for the 2010 People's Choice Award winner for Favorite Sci Fi/Fantasy TV series. So happy we Supernatural fans were able to band together and let the world know how much we love the show. I mean, we've always been talented at spreading the good word about Supernatural, I'm just happy we were finally able to do so on such a big stage. Congrats go out to Eric Kripke and everyone who has anything to do with creating such a wonderfully addictive program. OK, enough of the gushing about Supernatural as a whole, on to the first episode of 2010: "Sam, Interrupted."
