Good news and bad news for fans of Kevin McKidd and his Grey's Anatomy doc, Owen Hunt. When the ABC series returns with a new installment on February 3, his character will barely be seen on camera. The reason: Kevin was kept plenty busy off camera directing Grey's for the first time. He took time away from editing the episode to give us a scoop-filled preview of what's in store for that and future episodes...

A slightly tired, but excited, Procter returned to work on January 19, just in time for co-star Adam Rodriguez's directing debut...

Medium (Friday, 8/7c, CBS)
After all these years, you'd have thought we'd see this coming. But after seven seasons on two networks, the series about a psychic crime solver (Emmy winner Patricia Arquette) comes to an end with a far-reaching series finale that promises closure while taking a long look into the Dubois family's future. We'll miss that funky, frazzled family, but who knows that we won't be seeing them in our dreams?
Let's hope you haven't had your fill of silly love songs, because there's a colorful collection of classics — both old and new — lined up for Glee's February 8 Valentine's Day episode.

ABC's No Ordinary Family is continuing the fun trend of casting familiar TV faces as cool super villains. The latest to sign up as a Powell family foe is 24 and Six Feet Under alum Eric Balfour. Eric will play a death row inmate named Marcus Winnick in two episodes that will likely air in March.
Viewers seem to be responding to NOF's villain-of-the-week stunt casting, which has also included sinister visits from Rick Schroder, Anthony Michael Hall, and most recently...
NCIS has never been an "issue of the week" show, but when it rains issues on this show, it pours. Or at least it did in "Recruited," which made up for the lightness of the previous episode by taking on two hot topics: "Don't ask, don't tell" and Alzheimer's disease. There was something arbitrary about tackling both these subjects at once when the storylines never intersected in any real way and either would have been the worthy focus of an hour. But both were handled so nicely in executive producer Gary Glasberg's deftly balanced script that complaining about the conjoined focus feels like looking a gift horse in the mouth.
Starting tonight, crime-fiction king James Ellroy, author of L.A. Confidential, American Tabloid and more, hosts six episodes of a new show about some of the most devilish acts ever to terrorize the city of Angels. As "the demon dog of American literature" guides viewers through crime scenes, we get to know victims, killers and celebrities, and it begins with the family tragedy that sparked his fascination with crime. But no one is more interesting than the writer himself. We asked Ellroy for the cold, hard facts on his new series.
