The octogenarian character actor classes up the third season of FX's biker drama as Katey Sagal's Alzheimer's-addled dad. His work as a widower is even more heartbreaking when you realize Holbrook recently lost his real-life wife, Designing Women star Dixie Carter.
Deservedly Oscar-nominated for 2007's Into the Wild, Holbrook could be the one to break SOA's Emmy jinx...
Donal Logue, Ashley Tisdale
Don't look for the scruffy buddy-heroes of FX's Terriers to be named Best of Show. Top dogs they're not. These likably roguish mutts, private eyes who operate without a license because "we found that by not working with them we never have to worry about losing them," are the opposite of slick. Brawn is not their strong suit. But they're great, funny, funky company.

So much for that ankle monitor! How can the FBI keep tabs on White Collar's reformed con man Neal Caffrey (Matt Bomer), when he has vengeance on his mind? "Neal is taking justice into his own hands," reveals Bomer of tonight's mid-season finale (9/8c, USA), in which he constructs an elaborate grift to confront his ex-girlfriend Kate's murderer.
When it happens, don't expect him to stick to the rules. "A lot of moral lines get crossed," Bomer says. "When it comes to Kate, he doesn't always make the most rational, healthy decisions." Naturally, this will create tension between him and straitlaced Fed Peter Burke (Tim DeKay). The trust between the partners remains "always liquid, never rock solid," Bomer says.

Bristol Palin and Mark Ballas
This season's cast of ABC's Dancing With the Stars is a mix of the kind of contestants viewers have come to expect: the singer (Brandy); the football player (quarterback Kurt Warner); and the tabloid magnet (Jersey Shore's Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino). But one name came from left — or is it right? — field: single mom Bristol Palin, 19, daughter of Republican lightning rod Sarah Palin.
ABC News president David Westin is calling it quits.
In an e-mail message, Westin told colleagues late Monday "there are some other things I want to do professionally — things that I can't explore while fulfilling my responsibilities here." He has agreed to remain at ABC News until a successor is named.
While the announcement came suddenly, news industry insiders heard that ABC recently hired an executive search firm to scout out replacements for Westin...
