Lucy Liu, Jonny Lee Miller
Millions of Sherlock Holmes fans can rest easy; CBS' Holmes adaptation Elementary will pretty much never suffer from the Moonlighting curse (and here's hoping that is the last time we'll ever mention those two ideas in the same sentence).
Despite changes, CBS' Elementary captures the spirit of the original Sherlock Holmes
After CBS announced that its modern-day adaptation of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's famed detective series would feature a female Watson, fans feared that sexual tension may develop within one of the most iconic partnerships in history. But they didn't need to worry. Executive producer Rob Doherty promises there will be no romance between the dynamic duo in this iteration, which stars Jonny Lee Miller as the recovering addict and consultant for the NYPD, while his distaff Watson (Lucy Liu) is a former surgeon who becomes Sherlock's "sober companion."
"It was certainly never about creating...

Private Practice wasted no time in doing episodes that were outside the box, as executive producer Shonda Rhimes promised.
In its season premiere, Private went full Rashomon-style, telling the same story from different perspectives, culminating in several big reveals for the doctors of Seaside Wellness.

Loved the Castle premiere, but what was Castle doing with a half-naked woman in the promos for the next episode? —
ADAM: As creator Andrew W. Marlowe already teased, that encounter is a consequence of Castle pretending to be single in order to keep his relationship with Beckett a secret from their co-workers. But that doesn't mean infidelity won't be an issue. An upcoming case will implicate Castle in the murder of an ex. "It makes everybody question: How well do we actually know this guy?" Marlowe says. But it gets worse: "Castle may have been having an affair with her at the same time he was dating Beckett," he teases. "That goes to the heart of all of Beckett's insecurities."
Is Leonard actually going to date someone other than Penny on The Big Bang Theory? — Thomas
Private Practice kicks off its sixth season Tuesday (10/9c, ABC) with a sense of foreboding: The series was only renewed for 13 episodes, after which Kate Walsh will say farewell to Addison Montgomery and exit Seaside Wellness. Could the series go on? There is still a possibility, but executive producer Shonda Rhimes and the Private writers aren't pulling any punches in what could be the final season.
"I consider this to be our no-holds-barred season," Rhimes tells TVGuide.com. "Anything that we have ever wanted to do, we're going to do. There are no rules...
Jess may not be so adorkable this season.
When New Girl returns on Tuesday at 8/7c and 9/8c on Fox, Jess (Emmy-nominated Zooey Deschanel) will be unceremoniously let go from her teaching position, sending her once quirky life into disarray. Jess' firing will provide new comedic avenues for her — she'll work as a shot girl at Schmidt's penis-cast removal party in the premiere (Words we never thought we'd write together in a sentence) — and it will also allow her to test some romantic waters she might not have dipped her toe in before — like only sleeping with someone instead of being in a relationship. To her credit, the fling-worthy David Walton is pretty hard to resist — a sentiment creator Liz Meriwether agrees with.

In our candid interview below, Meriwether discusses Jess' new journey this season, along with the ultimate casting coup — Jamie Lee Curtis and Rob Reiner! — and what's in store for everyone's favorite roommate trio Schmidt (the also Emmy-nominated Max Greenfield), Winston (Lamorne Morris) and Nick (Jake Johnson).
