This Tuesday at 9 pm/ET, Fox's Fringe will shed light on one of its deepest and darkest mysteries: Is FBI agent John Scott truly dead and existing only in Olivia's conscience, or might he actually be alive?
Mark valley stopped by TVGuide.com to address that pointed question (at the 45-second mark in this video), as well as preview more about this week's episode, "The Transformation."
"We're going to find out a little bit more about who [John] was working for, and his feelings for Olivia," Valley shared ...
Bethany Joy Galeotti
On screen, she's known as Haley James Scott on the CW's One Tree Hill (Mondays, 9pm/ET). But for this week's episode, Bethany Joy Galeotti stepped behind the camera, to call all the shots as Lucas finally gets to cast his movie. TVGuide.com caught up with Galeotti to find out what it was like to direct her castmates and see someone else play Haley. Plus: Why did her favorite Tree Hill moment involve Chad Michael Murray and ... a water balloon?
TVGuide.com: How did the idea to direct come about?
Bethany Joy Galeotti: I have a tendency in the creative world to just go for things; it's how I've been my whole life. So it was probably during the fourth season when I said, "I wonder if I'd be any good at directing? Let me get a script and break it down and see how I'd do at that." So I did, and gave the script to our producer, Greg Prange, who said I did a really great job. About two years went by and I didn't hear anything and I thought, "Oh, maybe he was just being nice." But then I got a phone call this season, and he said...
Billie Piper is back with a second season of the British series Secret Diary of a Call Girl (Sundays, 10:30 pm/ET, Showtime), in which Hannah — aka Belle, her working-girl alter ego — navigates a "real" relationship and encounters new women in her field. Piper, a former pop star, veteran of Jane Austen movies (Mansfield Park) and new mom, still treats her controversial role with wide-eyed curiosity. TVGuide.com spoke to her about her research into the world of prostitution, the overseas controversy surrounding the sexy show and which scene it was that made her feel "strange" to film.
TV fans get a double dose of funny this Sunday: The Office will air a special one-hour episode immediately following Super Bowl XLIII. The super-sized episode is rumored to be chock-full of surprise guest stars and, hopefully, lots of Michael-Dwight shenanigans. In this video, Steve Carell teases how Jack Black and Jessica Alba fit into the Dunder Mifflin universe, the "roast" that Michael throws for himself and much more.
NBC's Heroes returns Monday at 9 pm/ET, but can the troubled series get back on track? To hear Hayden Panettiere and Greg Grunberg (aka Claire and Matt) tell it, the new "Fugitives" arc has the makings of a comeback, as it "gets the band back together" toward a common, self-preserving goal.
"The government gets involved with taking people like us down and capturing us," Panettiere says in the video shown below. Ultimately, after what Grunberg describes as "a huge cliffhanger," the hunted heroes are afforded a chance to elude capture.

It was a battle of the ceviches for this week's axed cheftestant, Jeff McInnis, during Top Chef's Super Bowl Showdown. But should he have been the one who left? TVGuide.com caught up with the Miami chef to find out who he thought should have gone home in his place and why he thought his all-star competitor basically made shrimp nachos — not ceviche.
TVGuide.com: What did you think of the judges' comments about your dish?
Jeff McInnis: I never got any direct critique except that it was a watered-down version, which I don't know what that means because I never used any water. I never got "Make it hotter or colder, saltier or sweeter," so I don't know what I could have done to change it. It was a good dish, and I stand by it. I actually have the exact dish on my menu and people love it. I sold 10 of them today. But if I could go back, I would have done something totally different.
TVGuide.com: Do you think Fabio should have gone home over you?
Jeff: Sure. He blasted a piece of meat. That's something a chef can put their finger on and say, "This is overcooked — I meant to do it medium-rare and I did it well-done." He committed a sin. In the Bible, it says you don't do this. Whereas I committed a sin and it says ...
Even as several sexy relationships have blossomed on Battlestar Galactica, a more powerful love affair has quietly grown between President Roslin (Mary McDonnell) and Admiral Adama (Edward James Olmos).

Former Married... with Children star David Faustino has a new Web series, where he plays a broke, suicidal and down-and-out version of himself. Star-ving is about "David'"s quest to get back on his feet after learning he has no money, no job prospects (save for a porn shop left to him by a fan) and an agent that can barely breathe, let alone find him work. Faustino stopped by TVGuide.com's studio to talk about the process of building a successful Web series, how he snagged his Children costars for cameos and the breast-cancer joke he wrote for Christina Applegate.

The Biggest Loser, Daniel Wright
At 454 pounds, Daniel Wright was the heaviest contestant in Biggest Loser history. He quickly proved that he was in it to win it -- if only his partner, David, had felt the same. Instead, David made it clear that he would rather continue his weight-loss journey at home. Just one week shy of the return of the at-home contestants, Daniel was voted out. TVGuide.com asked the 19-year-old student about his favorite healthy recipe and how it felt to have a "5 foot-nothing" woman terrify him. The Biggest Loser: Couples airs Tuesdays at 8pm/ET on NBC.
TVGuide.com: How did it feel to find out that while you were working your butt off at the ranch, Dave was at home eating fried foods and smoking?
Dan Wright: I know how hard it is to try to [lose weight] at home. I've tried for years and I haven't been successful yet. So my heart was just hurt knowing that he was going through the same struggles that I had been going through a month earlier.
TVGuide.com: What's the biggest lesson you learned on the ranch?
Wright: To understand what food is, and to put it in its place. I use it as a crutch. The ranch helped me realize that I can turn to completely different things — not just food.
TVGuide.com: Going back to that last work-out with Jillian, what was going through your head when you fell and she just kept screaming at you to get up?
Wright: I was thinking that I'd like to be at home eating ice cream on my couch. What in the world?...
