House, Omar Epps
There's a new Dean of Medicine at Princeton-Plainsboro Teaching Hospital.
And on Monday's episode of House, that new dean was Dr. Gregory House's ticket out of prison. After House (Hugh Laurie) drove his car through her house, Cuddy (Lisa Edelstein) left her post at the hospital. And taking her place is none other than Dr. Eric Foreman (Omar Epps)!
Foreman showed up at the prison with a judge's order to release House on conditional parole under Foreman's supervision. The catch: House must return to the hospital to help his fellow doctors save an organ donor's lungs so that a transplant patient can receive them. And as you might expect, not everyone at Princeton-Plainsboro is happy to see House.

So was House worth the risk? And will he actually respect Foreman's new authority? We chatted with Epps about all that and more. Plus: What does Foreman see in...

If you're still drying your eyes after last week's emotional goodbye between Kristina (Monica Potter) and Alex (Michael B. Jordan) on Parenthood, you're not alone. Just don't even think about putting the tissues away yet.
"I had no idea that this scene would move people. Michael and I just did it and it was like, 'OK, that was good.' But I came in last week and our crew members were talking about that scene," Potter tells TVGuide.com. "I thought, 'Wow that's pretty incredible that people are having this strong of a reaction. Which is great — it was very moving and touching to me.'" However, just as Kristina and the Bravermans say goodbye to one (almost) member of the family, they will welcome a new arrival with the birth of their baby in Tuesday's episode, titled "Nora," airing at 10/9c on NBC. Potter talked with TVGuide.com about Kristina's surprising delivery room partner, the art of pretending to give birth (hint: it involves grape jelly and cream cheese!) and the high emotions ahead for Kristina that come with this new bundle of joy...
Enlightened, Laura Dern
HBO has a way of attracting big-time film stars to the small screen. With the Monday night premiere of Enlightened, the network's done it again with Laura Dern, who plays an executive who has had a "nervous breakthrough." We want to know what you thought of this show — and what you think of every new series this season.
Kaylani and Lisa
For once, having a cab caused a downfall on The Amazing Race. Vegas showgirls Kaylani Paliotta and Lisa Tilley lost valuable time when they had to settle their cab fare before checking into the Pit Stop at Indonesia's Borobudur Temple, ultimately in last place. "When we were driving up there, we kept telling each other, 'We're going to pay our cab,'" Tilley tells TVGuide.com. "But for whatever reason, once we actually got there, we were in such a rush to get started that we just had him wait and got out." Still, while their race ended early, they're happy to have raced at all after Paliotta lost her passport en route to LAX in the first leg — only to have Twitter come to the rescue.
Christina Applegate, Will Arnett
It's time to get schooled.
In this week's Up All Night, Chris (Will Arnett) and Reagan (Christina Applegate) take baby Amy to a play group, though it's not a playful group. Chris and Reagan are the "aggressive" new parents when it comes to...
The case on Monday's Castle (10/9c, ABC) hits a little too close to home.

That's especially true for Detective Ryan (Seamus Dever), who last season lost his badge and service weapon to the 3XK serial killer. Now, the missing gun has turned up — as the weapon that murdered the team's most recent victim.
"It's a very emotional episode for Detective Ryan," creator and executive producer Andrew W. Marlowe tells TVGuide.com. "If you're a cop and you've lost your gun to somebody, and then it's used in a murder, the case becomes deeply, deeply personal to you. It's every cop's worst nightmare...
