Last week's Mercy ended with Mike figuring out his wife Veronica had an affair in Iraq. So, how is Mike going to fare this week now that he's digested the news of her infidelity?
NBC picks up Community, Mercy and Parks and Recreation
"It comes to violence [between Mike and Sands]," James Tupper, who plays Dr. Sands on the medical drama, tells TVGuide.com. "Very full-on, direct, action-movie violence. I felt like an action hero for the day of shooting!"

Though it's hard to say why Sands has had such a hard time letting Veronica go despite her ambivalence, Tupper feels a lot of it has to do with them sharing something in Iraq. "I think being close to her is necessary for his recovery from the experience," says Tupper.
While the freshman series has aired only its first six episodes, last week alone, Elisabeth Moss, Jerry Stiller and Anne Meara appeared as guest stars. Tupper also discussed an upcoming appearance by his Men In Trees co-star and mother of his child, Anne Heche.

It's going to be a busy weekend for Mad Men star Rich Sommer.
Before the AMC drama wraps up its third season Sunday night (10/9c), Sommer will appear in a ripped-from-the-headlines episode of Law & Order (Friday at 9/8c on NBC). "The episode is sort of inspired by the woman who drove the wrong way down the Taconic [Expressway]," Sommer tells TVGuide.com. "I play her boss, and after some investigating, they begin to suspect him a little bit, that somehow he may have been involved."

TGS is looking to add a star to its roster and Liz is in charge of finding said star. She's narrowed it down to her final pick but she needs to make the decision look like Jack's green light call. Ergo, she brings in a slew of horribly untalented "talents." (We even get a flashback to Liz's early career auditions — hysterical!) Her goal is to rig the audition and force Jack into "choosing" her dream talent.
