When Andie MacDowell joins the new Fox drama Lone Star as Jon Voight's love interest, she won't be playing nice. "Surprisingly, she's a nasty con woman who's brought in to help Bob's father with his idea of going after the company fortune," creator and executive producer Kyle Killen said at Fox's PaleyFest: Fall TV Preview Party, sponsored by TV Guide Magazine, on September 13.
Lone Star, premiering September 20, centers around charming con man Bob Allen (James Wolk), who's leading a double life. In one, he is ...

The Big Bang Theory
The morning after he won the Emmy for best lead actor in a comedy series, Jim Parsons thought he might have dreamt the whole thing. But his cell phone's constant buzzing was confirmation that his portrayal of physicist Sheldon Cooper on The Big Bang Theory had made him a bona fide star. "I have been absolutely inundated with texts, calls and e-mails from so many people," Parsons told TV Guide Magazine just hours after taking home the trophy. "I have several texts that I cannot identify. Somebody named Kimberly has written me and I don't know if I should just write back and say 'Kimberly who?' You don't realize how many people there are in your life until something like this happens and you're like, holy moley, I have a lot of people in my life that I love."

No, I'm not talking about Taylor Swift's VMA revenge on Kanye West — although I'd rather watch those two mudwrestle than this new syndicated Judge Judy not-gonnabe with Nancy Grace. Can someone please explain this browbeating brute's appeal? As if she doesn't have enough time on her nightly hourlong self-titled HLN jeremiad to badger would-be witnesses, now she's appointed herself judge, jury and executioner on small-claims cases brought by plaintiffs and defendants naïve — or attention-starved — enough to allow Grace to make a final, binding decision...
With 30 new shows premiering on the major networks this fall, the doors are wide open for a new breakout hit. Could it be The Event, the sci-fi thriller starring Jason Ritter, Laura Innes and Blair Underwood? Or will the working-class comedy Raising Hope with Martha Plimpton and Cloris Leachman become the new Roseanne? Perhaps the action and tropical scenery of Hawaii Five-0 will bring audiences back to the islands. But Tom Selleck's Blue Bloods and its family of New York City cops might end up TV's most arresting drama. Vote in our poll after the jump...

Is Greens the killer? The murder of David Hayward on ABC's All My Children takes a trippy turn next week when his wife Greenlee — played by Rebecca Budig — admits she forged several letters to make it appear that the evil doc committed suicide. But is the guy really dead? A rep for Vincent Irizarry, who played David, recently posted a statement on the actor's official Facebook page saying Irizarry was "still in negotiations" with the show — suggesting this might be yet another phony "death" in Pine Valley. Irizarry then issued a follow-up statement claiming this announcement was "unauthorized and premature" but never said it was untrue. What ev. TV Guide Magazine spoke to Budig in the midst of the Irizarry hoo-hah and got her take on the whodunit. Guess which soap she hopes to land on if Greens gets the electric chair!

"Oh my God, it's surreal!" Cortese, originally an off-camera pal of Snooki's, told TV Guide Magazine about her newfound fame, which she's already experiencing months before she makes her official debut on the reality series. "I have fan pages already, and people Twittering me, and I'm just like 'I just got out of the house two days ago!'"
