OK, Smallvillagers, get ready to fly into a frenzy! On Friday, October 15, the series celebrates its 200th episode, but you can get the party started with this exclusive peek at the official promo for "Homecoming" right here and now.
Built around Clark's high-school reunion and featuring the return of James Marsters as a much-less nasty Brianiac, "there are all kinds of nods that go back to the beginning... a lot of glimpses," promises exec producer Kelly Souders, who has also packed in a lot of geeked-out goodies (check out those magazine covers!). And just wait until you see what happens when Clark pays a trip to his future... and runs into himself at the most "Man of Steel" moment the show has thrown at us so far.
A second version of this trailer will appear at the end of tonight's "Supergirl" episode on the CW at 8/7c.
Check out the video after the jump...

The second season of NBC's under-the-radar sitcom may not be making a Big Bang in the ratings, but you can't deny it's explosively funny. The show has perfected the formula of well-chosen guest stars (Daily Show vets Rob Corddry and John Oliver, alt-comedy god Patton Oswalt, and, yes, Betty White, who's better in small doses like this week's cameo); snappy, pop-reference-rich dialogue; physical shtick from the masterful likes of Chevy Chase and Ken Jeong; and unexpected moments of M*A*S*H/Scrubs-esque sincerity.
This week's episode, "The Psychology of Letting Go," worked in meaningful ruminations on life, death and religion as Chase's Pierce refused to accept his mom's demise...

An upcoming episode of ABC's Modern Family will find Claire (Julie Bowen) taking on the feared janitor at Luke and Manny's school. And who better to evoke dread than feature film character actor Danny Trejo, who has killed countless onscreen? Danny, a reformed drug addict who was in and out of the slammer for 11 years, most recently terrorized moviegoers as the title character of the Robert Rodriguez-directed movie, Machete.
The Modern Family episode finds Claire in charge of an upcoming school dance at the boys' school....
Is television comedy icon Bob Newhart, 81, ready to stage his own Betty White-esque pop culture takeover?
"I don't know if the American public is ready for that," laughed Newhart at a salute to his 50th anniversary in show business at Beverly Hills' Paley Center for Media. But while the star of The Bob Newhart Show and Newhart says starring in a regular a series isn't highly likely ("That's for young people"), he's nowhere near retirement — and he may be teaming with his longtime best friend Don Rickles for a TV project in the near future...

Frank Valentini and Ron Carlivati
As reported exclusively here last week, ABC Daytime has made a break with corporate tradition and confirmed new multi-year deals with One Life to Live's executive producer Frank Valentini and head writer Ron Carlivati. This is an obvious effort to quell the cancellation rumors that have plagued OLTL for months. Valentini, now in his eighth year as showrunner, has re-upped for two more. Carlivati has signed for three years. Because ABC owns its soaps, this is the closest it comes to a show pickup. But is it truly a reason to rejoice? TV Guide Magazine corralled Valentini and Carlivati to find out....
