Question: I was wondering what you think about this season of Rescue Me so far. I thought last week's episode was one of the best they have done in a while. I like that the show refuses to compromise or tack on happy endings. Just when it looks like Tommy will finally make an effort to be a good father or husband, something happens and ...
Aftermath with William Shatner (Monday, 10/9c, BIO) As he proved in his Shatner's Raw Nerve series, the future star of $#*! My Dad Says is no slouch when it comes to interviewing people who interest him. In this new series, he catches up with people who became famous or infamous overnight. First subject: Bernard Goetz, the so-called "Subway Vigilante" who shot four men he alleged were intending to mug him on a New York subway train in 1984...
He's not just the host of Last Comic Standing (Monday, 9/8c, NBC), he's also a comic who knows stand-up. So we grilled the Office star for a primer on making 'em laugh.
It's decision time for the Bachelorette and honestly, Ali Fedotowsky has her work cut out for her. "She really can't go wrong," says host Chris Harrison of the man-tastic task facing this season's singleton. So will it be Roberto, the hard-bodied insurance agent from Charleston, South Carolina, or sexy and sensitive Massachusetts landscaper Chris L.? Here's Harrison's take on Ali's prospective picks...
There's a chance Conan O'Brien could return to NBC's airwaves—albeit very briefly. ...
Michael Scott has had many opponents in recent years, but this season he will get an adversary worthy of a duel at sunset. Timothy Olyphant (FX's Justified) joins The Office for at least two episodes as a salesman who's just a little too good at his job. "He steals clients away from ...
There's event TV, and then there's NBC's The Event. Which had better be eventful, for NBC's sake.
You can tell a lot about a network's hope for a show from the way it's launched during the TCA press tour. For NBC, once again in a "rebuilding" year (as the execs put it) after last year's prime-time Jay Leno debacle, the highest expectations are pinned on ...
Jennifer Love Hewitt
After whispering to ghosts and playing a masseuse in a summer TV movie, Jennifer Love Hewitt is taking on the most serious role of her career. "In our third hour, airing September 29, Jennifer will be playing a woman named Vicki who has been raped multiple times and is afraid to leave her house," Law & Order: SVU executive producer Neal Baer tells me exclusively. "One of the reasons we wanted to do this episode is because it addresses Mariska Hargitay's passion for rape kits, which can help gather evidence to convict the rapists. But for some reason these kits have been sitting around unopened in cities all over the country."

Jeers to Jersey Shore for losing touch with its Garden State roots.
As has been noted by Gov. Chris Christie, among others, much of the cast of MTV's watercooler smash doesn't hail from New Jersey. At least Season 1 was shot in Seaside Heights, but in a rush to get the show back on the air before Snooki & Co.'s 15 minutes of infamy run out, Season 2 opens with the gang fleeing the snowy Northeast for Miami Beach (or "the MIA," which, as the Situation helpfully explains, "means Miami")...
