Marti Noxon, Heather Morris
There are many reasons the Internet exploded when it was announced in June that Buffy the Vampire Slayer executive producer and fanboy favorite Marti Noxon had joined the writing staff of Glee: She has plenty of cult cred, thanks to her days working alongside Joss Whedon, but her resume is also littered with top dramas including Mad Men, Private Practice, Grey's Anatomy and Brothers & Sisters.
"Geeks and musical nerds are all the same people," she says. "There were only so many places to hide in high school: One was the A/V club and the other was the drama club. In Glee, the two meet so beautifully."

"Well, that was the working title, actually," Allen joked. "Somebody's already got it.
Sesame Street's upcoming 42nd season promises a gaggle of celebrity guests who'll frolic with children and puppets — as well as some skits based on pop-culture references.

Kevin McKidd, Chandra Wilson and Patrick Dempsey, Grey’s Anatomy
If you thought there wouldn't be severe consequences for Meredith (Ellen Pompeo) tampering with the Alzheimer's clinical trial on Grey's Anatomy, you'd be seriously mistaken.
Grey's Anatomy: Shonda Rhimes talks Mer-Der's struggle, Cristina's pregnancy
When the new season begins, Thursday, Sept. 22 at 9/8c, the Chief (James Pickens Jr.) will have made a self-sacrificing decision, taking the fall for Mer's misdeeds.
