Taking advantage of the networks' post-sweeps lull, TNT roars back in a big way this week, with tonight's winter return (for five episodes) of its two biggest hits, The Closer and Rizzoli & Isles, and starting Tuesday for the next month, a weekly series of first-run mystery movies on Tuesdays and Wednesdays. (More on that later this week.)
The Closer (8/7c) and Rizzoli (9/8c) each have similar starting points for this ...
Raphael Sbarge, Lana Parrilla
OK, so Walt Disney is either rolling in his grave or LOLing from the beyond. Hopefully it's the latter, because Once Upon a Time is such a hoot. It would be a shame to think the man behind the Mouse wouldn't be down with the fun being had over in Storybrooke.
As the season's top new drama, the delightful ...

Question: Now that we are about at the mid-season break for shows, I have been thinking about which returning shows are having the best, most satisfying seasons. Fringe, Castle, Community and Bones are at the top of my list, but I have to single out Parks and Recreation as the best returning show. I wasn't sure Parks and Rec could sustain the consistently funny run it had last season, but it has easily lived up to the expectations of Season 3. I think what has made this season even better ...

With the death of Marshall's father last spring and Robin's recent emotional roller coaster, CBS' How I Met Your Mother has been playing out like a daytime soap, and executive producer Carter Bays says there's more drama ahead next year. "We always try to do that delicate dance between lighthearted comedy and real issues," Carter says. Among the upcoming developments:
• Barney finds romantic stability — likely with a woman named...
Some critics have called NBC the Nepotism Broadcasting Company after the news division announced that Chelsea Clinton will serve as a special correspondent for its "Making a Difference" segments. The daughter of Bill and Hillary Clinton joins a roster that includes former President George W. Bush's daughter Jenna Bush Hager, a correspondent for Today, and Sen. John McCain's daughter Meghan, a contributor to MSNBC.
Former One Tree Hill hottie Hilarie Burton is become reality star. Sort of. Hilarie, who left her One Tree role as Peyton in 2009 and currently costars on USA's White Collar, has won a guest spot on ABC's Castle as a charismatic reality TV personality named Kay Cappuccio, who to me sounds a lot like a certain Kardashian...
David Frei and John O'Hurley
The National Dog Show — that most surprising of Thanksgiving TV traditions — will air for the 10th year right after the Macy's Parade (Thursday, noon/11c, NBC). We got the program's esteemed cohost, pup expert David Frei, to unleash a few thoughts.
