For those of us stuck in the colder climes during this miserable winter, what could be better than keeping the home fires burning with laughter? Not so easy when ABC, which boasts the best all-around night of comedy with its Wednesday lineup, is currently in a repeat cycle. (No new episodes of anything besides the effervescent Cougar Town until Feb. 9 — and that's the night when Cougar is temporarily benched for the not-so-bright Mr. Sunshine.)

Supernatural (Friday, 9/8c, The CW)
After a long holiday break, the winter run begins with questions lingering around Sam and his long-lost soul. Namely, was Death able to restore the poor boy's essence of humanity without driving him bonkers? Dean and Bobby are on pins and needles as they wait, but they've got other things lighting a fire under them. Most notably, a dragon (!), which seems to be the cause of a series of disappearances of virgins. Dean as dragonslayer? Reason enough to welcome this show back. An hour earlier, on Smallville, all hail the return of...
Tony and Ridley Scott
Gentlemen, start your engines: A pair of rival shows about 1960s auto racing are in the works, both with impressive producers behind the wheel. Tony and Ridley Scott (The Good Wife) are locked in a race against rival filmmakers Wolfgang Petersen (Air Force One) and Ron Shelton (Bull Durham) as they compete to capture the mid-20th century international auto racing circuit via two separate TV projects...
Wow! After delivering the goods in December alongside Robert De Niro on Saturday Night Live, Sean P. Diddy Combs will next play a cop in a spring episode of CBS's Hawaii Five-0.
According to show sources, Diddy plays a New York police detective named Reggie Williams who heads to Honolulu to hunt down the men responsible for a brutal crime against his family. But this vigilante's one-man war for justice sets him on a collision course with Team Five-0. Uh oh.
Knock, knock! It's Tempestt Bledsoe, and she's here to organize your home. Tonight, the former Cosby Show kid brings her own unique flair to the job of clutter-busting when she takes over as host of the popular makeover series Clean House from Niecy Nash, who's moving on to other projects.
Joan & Melissa: Joan Know Best?
Say what you will about Joan Rivers (God knows she's probably already said it funnier), but the woman really is a piece of work.
Last night, the legendary cut-up kicked off her new reality show, Joan & Melissa: Joan Knows Best, and proved to us all that Betty White isn't the only woman of a certain age worth watching these days. Loaded down with more baggage than a Bachelor contestant and enough opinions to put Fox News in a fetal position, Rivers also showed that she's as gutsy as some of her own material as she traded 21 years in Manhattan for Malibu to crash with daughter and red-carpet comrade Melissa. Did hilarity ensue? Sure. But so did some unexpected drama.
Adrianne Palicki found a cathartic way to get revenge on those responsible for canceling her critically acclaimed series Lone Star earlier this season — by imagining that they were her victims in her turn as a serial killer on Criminal Minds.

Supernatural is about to get an angelic visit from a Watchmen beauty. Canadian-born actress Sonya Salomaa, who played the sexy assistant to Adrian Veidt/Ozymandias in the 2009 big-screen superhero hit, will...
Evan Ross and Matt Lanter
Fact: There will never be another Emily Valentine.
Then again, we also said there would never been another Beverly Hills, 90210, yet here we are, three seasons into Nu-0210 and pretty much loving how much better it is than that tragic opening season. It's still no Peach Pit Revisited, but honestly, could anyone deal with that much fabulous again?
Anyway, the West Bev crew came back last night after a long winter break and it was so nice to have them home. Naomi and Silver were able to ...
