As if his day job as co-executive producer on Supernatural didn't take him to enough dark places, Adam Glass' new gig writing DC Comics' Suicide Squad is also packed with depravity. The comic book, whose first issue goes on sale Wednesday as part of DC's relaunch of its entire line, features a team of hardened super villains who are recruited into a government black ops team as a way to reduce their prison sentences. Their missions are brutal and bloody (the first issue includes a harrowing torture sequence) and as the name of the team implies, survival is never guaranteed.
Sarah Michelle Gellar
All My Children will soon end its staggering 41-year run but not before one of its most famous grads drops in to say goodbye. Ringer star Sarah Michelle Gellar, who won a 1995 Daytime Emmy as Kendall Hart, the wicked, sexually audacious daughter of Erica Kane, will return to the ABC soap September 21.
Gellar approached the show herself, specifically asking not to play Kendall
Michael J. Fox, Larry David
TV at its most extreme — HBO would have it no other way as it bid farewell to its Sunday summer tentpoles this weekend. Here's my take on each of them:
Extremely Bloody: That would be True Blood, which as usual wrapped its season with an orgy of extremely silly excess. The body (and bawdy) count was high as the episode reached more climaxes than the final reel of the last Lord of the Rings movie. When and how would it ever end? In a bloody mess, that's how. But I've loved most of this season ...
Jenny McCarthy is returning to Two and a Half Men — and she's doing a lot more than just attending Charlie's funeral.
The actress first played con artist Courtney, who scams Charlie Sheen's character out of money, in 2007. McCarthy showed up again last season for a handful of episodes, as Courtney was released from jail and pursued a new relationship with Charlie.
This season, it's been rumored that Courtney shows up to Charlie's funeral. But beyond that, TV Guide Magazine has confirmed that McCarthy's character is also back to stir up more ...
Bill Hayes, Susan Seaforth Hayes
There has been a lot of hoopla — understandably! — about the September 26 relaunch of NBC's Days Of Our Lives and the return of supercouple Drake Hogestyn and Deidre Hall. But, truth be told, we're just as excited that Bill Hayes and Susan Seaforth Hayes — the true First Couple of Salem — are also headed back to the show. Watch for them September 23 through 28 when their characters, Doug and Julie Williams, appear for the dedication celebration of the new Horton Town ...

Question: I was wondering what you thought of the civil suit arc on The Closer this season. It's an interesting juxtaposition of morality on the one hand, and rooting for the characters on the other. It also shows all the different shades of grey in the law. If I heard about an incident in real life where police just dropped off someone in a neighborhood when they thought s/he would be killed, I'd be appalled. Yet I understand these characters' motives in this case, like all of them, and want to be on their side. The part of this arc I do love is Mark Pellegrino as Brenda's lawyer Gavin. I love the character and the nuances Pellegrino brings to playing him. Having only seen Pellegrino previously on Lost, and noting how different Gavin is from Jacob, I really appreciate what a fine actor he is. He deserves his own show. Unlike most of the other lawyer shows in recent years on TNT or USA, which I've skipped, I'd definitely watch a show centered around this ...
Trick and treat!
Halloween came to Bon Temps early last night as True Blood wrapped up its season with an hour that was everything — haunting, hilarious and heartbreaking. And while we mourn several losses, Samhain down South brought with it a twist we can totally live with: ghosts.
Much like the Vampire Diaries finale last May, we got a peek at some of the dearly and dreadfully departed from Blood gone by after Sookie, Tara and Holly summoned the sprits ...
Sasha Alexander and Angie Harmon
It's not quite time to say goodbye for good to TNT's signature hit The Closer, which will return in November with new episodes, then finish out its run with a batch of episodes next summer. Tonight's "summer finale" (9/8c) is a potentially pivotal one, as Brenda awaits a judge's decision about whether to drop the charges in the civil suit that has been hanging over her and the department all season. The shooting death of a deputy sheriff provides some distraction. ... The popular, but by comparison ...
