Even with so many season finales and cliffhangers clamoring for our attention this month, I doubt you'll find two hours of TV more riveting, harrowing and inspiring than Freedom Riders, the latest triumph from PBS' American Experience series.

Question: The recent cancellation of almost all of Fox's bubble shows seems to stem at least partially from a lack of "shelf space," since they don't program shows in the 10 pm/ET hour. My question is, why not? There must be a story here, though being 22, I haven't been watching adult-skewing prime-time shows long enough to remember it, so please enlighten me. I am ...
TV Guide Magazine: There was some concern that Terra Nova might be pushed back again, given the previous delays on the show. Is it ready to go, and why did you decide to kick off Mondays with it?
Kevin Reilly: We've been sitting on this show, producing it for a while and it's been a big undertaking. It's ...

Castle (Monday, 10/9c, ABC)
This week is a smorgasbord of season (and in some cases, possibly series) finales, and Monday is overstuffed with them, including CBS's comedies, a Chuck wedding on NBC, a 90210 graduation on the CW, and a showdown with the legendary villain Wo Fat capping the first season of Hawaii Five-0.

When hitman Hal Lockwood (Max Martini) escapes from...

He had the most inspirational run of the season. Sensitive, soulful and passionate rocker James Durbin, 22, who was diagnosed in middle school with Tourette's syndrome and high-functioning autism, let the stage be his safe haven as he rocked his way to fourth place on American Idol. It was a shocking ouster for a contestant who's been a frontrunner from the start. Durbin's mastery of the stage was a victory over two neurological diseases that make it hard for him to socialize and control his face from twitching. It was a victory over the hurts from the outside world that used to cause him so much pain. "As I was getting older, at school, people would tell me, 'Cut that out, stop that.' I was like, 'I can't,'" Durbin said on his audition tape. "I always got made fun of and beat up. I was just lost."
