Jessica Capshaw, Sara Ramirez and Kevin McKidd
The blockbuster shows have returned! The Grey's Anatomy docs worked through post-traumatic stress while the Glee kids auditioned new members and sung their angst-filled teenaged hearts out. Booth surprised Brennan with a new girlfriend on Bones, but Benson and Stabler returned for a record-breaking 12th season of Law & Order: SVU. So which premiere week episode did you enjoy the most?

Oh yeah... this is gonna be good.
For those of you who may have given up on Desperate Housewives over the past few seasons, it's time to come back home. Because last night marked a return to its previously fiesty form (as well as a return of several original characters aside from just Paul Young) with the arrival of ...

Randee Heller's spot-on performance of this old-school gatekeeper, a relic of a time before feminism was on anyone's radar...
