On a Wednesday afternoon in late August, Kerry Washington's shih tzu-Yorkie mix, Josie, is napping contentedly on a Hollywood soundstage sofa as her Emmy-nominated owner gets back to the business of being scandalous. Clad in her character Olivia Pope's trademark Armani, Washington is...well, we can't tell you what she's doing, who she's doing it with, or even where they're doing it. If we did, Scandal creator and executive producer Shonda Rhimes would unleash the show's figurative guard dogs, the fearsome spies of B613, on us.

What will Emma and Hook's dating life be like on Once Upon a Time? — Val
The good news: The producers are going to let them go out somewhere other than Granny's Diner. The bad news: "It's going to be tricky for the two of them," executive producer Adam Horowitz says.

Red Band Society
For the hospital kids of Red Band Society, death may be around the corner, but life is just beginning.
Set in the children's ward of a Los Angeles hospital, Red Band Society (premieres Wednesday, 9/8c, Fox) is about an unlikely group of friends who've come together — some begrudgingly — to face their life-threatening sicknesses. Zoe Levin, Charlie Rowe, Brian "Astro" Bradley, Ciara Bravo and Nolan Sotillo make up the Breakfast Club-like gang, while Griffin Gluck stars as a coma patient from whose perspective and narrative the story is told.
Being a fan of The Mindy Project often feels like I'm stuck in a better-dressed version of Groundhog's Day. The difference is only that after two seasons, Mindy Kaling and the writers still haven't quite learned from their mistakes.

"As my 13-year-old cousin said to me this weekend, 'Are people going to yell at each other less?' And I said, 'Yes,'" Meriwether tells TVGuide.com.
