On Sunday's episode (10/9c, CBS), Patrick Jane (Simon Baker) narrows down his list of suspects to seven people.

Emily Deschanel, David Boreanaz

"Marriage is starting to look good on you."

That's what Seeley Booth (David Boreanaz) says to Temperance Brennan (Emily Deschanel) in the Season 8 finale of Fox's Bones when he notices Brennan looking longingly at a picture of Booth's newlywed mother. But has Brennan really changed her mind about marriage?

5 Things You Should Know About the NFL Draft

NFL Draft 2013

Are you ready for some football?

You're in luck. Because this is the big one. The NFL draft, my peoples!

The NFL draft storms onto the field, so to speak, April 25-27 at New York's Radio City Music Hall, and will be televised on both ESPN and the NFL Network. It marks the first time the draft has been simulcast in its 78-year history.

While this year's draft probably won't have the electricity of elite talent, it does have a couple of fun story lines. We knew the first two picks in 2012; this year is not as predictable. "What I'm hearing repeatedly from some team personnel men, as the draft gets closer and the honesty increases, is that this draft is subpar. Extremely subpar," sports columnist Michael Freeman writes on CBSSports.com. "Few team personnel want to say anything publicly about the paucity of talent out of fear of hearing from the NFL."

NCIS: Will Ziva Give the New Mossad Director a Chance?

Michael Weatherly, Cote de Pablo

The countdown to the NCIS season finale begins now.

Now that Gibbs (Mark Harmon) and Vance (Rocky Carroll) have given Ziva (Cote de Pablo) permission to pursue her rogue investigation of Ilan Bodner, all of her actions — beginning with a Tony (Michael Weatherly) and Ziva trip to Berlin on Tuesday's episode (8/7c, CBS) —will feed into the season's ultimate conclusion.

Spoilers! Get scoop on 39 must-watch finales

"From this point on, all of these episodes connect and they all propel us toward the finale," executive producer Gary Glasberg tells TVGuide.com. "'Berlin' functions as both a significant part of the Bodner story and has a tremendous Tony/Ziva personal story line that goes along with it. It's primarily work-related, but there are little moments that give them an opportunity to connect and hopefully satisfy a lot of our Tiva fans."

But before Tony and Ziva kick off their European jaunt/manhunt, Ziva will meet new Mossad Director Orli Elbaz (Star Trek: The Next Generation alum Marina Sirtis), the woman replacing Ziva's murdered father... read more

Mad Men: 8 Burning Questions About Season 6

Jessica Paré and Jon Hamm, Mad Men

Grab your fedora and pour yourself an Old Fashioned — Mad Men is back.

After weeks of speculation over the meaning of teaser trailers and (possibly) Easter egg-filled posters, the AMC drama launches its sixth — and likely penultimate — season with a two-hour premiere (Sunday, 9/8c). Season 5 ended with Don (Jon Hamm) giving in to the acting desires of his new bride Megan (Jessica Paré) and helping her get a part in one of the agency's commercials. As Don literally and figuratively left Megan behind at the soundstage to seek solace in a whiskey glass, he was approached by a woman at the bar who asked, "Are you alone?"

Exclusive Mad Men Season 6 trailer: "The next thing will be better"

While we've pondered Don's response to that query in the intervening months, we've also crafted a few more burning questions about what might be ahead for the men and women of Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce (and Peggy!) this season. After the jump, creator Matthew Weiner and the cast give us their best answers... read more

NBC's Hannibal: Not Just Another Serial Killer Show

Hugh Dancy, Laurence Fishburne, Mads Mikkelsen

In a year that's already given us Fox's The Following and A&E's Bates Motel, some might argue that we don't need another serial killer TV show. And they'd probably be right.

But NBC's Hannibal isn't just another serial killer show.

Spring Preview: Gets scoop on all the must-see new shows

Taking characters from the Thomas Harris novels that inspired a film series that includes Manhunter, The Silence of the Lambs and Red Dragon, executive producer Bryan Fuller (Wonderfalls, Pushing Daisies) has created a sophisticated drama that doesn't glorify the violence of mass murder but rather examines the toll that hunting serial killers takes on the minds and souls of those who hunt. In fact, even though the show is named after Dr. Hannibal Lecter, who was immortalized as one of the greatest pop culture villains of all time thanks to Anthony Hopkins' Oscar-winning portrayal, the series — at least initially — isn't entirely focused on the cannibal in the three-piece suit... read more

NCIS: Los Angeles Boss Goes Personal for "Red" Spin-Off

NCIS: Los Angeles

As NCIS: Los Angeles executive producer Shane Brennan prepares to possibly launch the franchise's third show, some might wonder: Does the world need another NCIS?

First Look: NCIS: L.A. spinoff sees "Red"

"I'm sure it's a question a lot of people are asking and I can assure everyone it's not something that we approached lightly," Brennan tells TVGuide.com. "It's something that I certainly wouldn't have done if I didn't think we could make it different and turn a different light on the NCIS world."

The key difference is that the characters at the heart of the new series.... read more

Stana Katic, Nathan Fillion, Jon Huertas

On Monday's Castle (10/9c, ABC) our titular mystery writer believes he's being haunted. So, who's he going to call for help? (Hint: It's not the Ghostbusters.)

When Castle (Nathan Fillion) and Beckett (Stana Katic) investigate a string of strange deaths, Castle accidentally watches the "haunted DVD" that he believes might be causing their victims to croak. Cue a full-on panic attack by Castle, who believes he's marked for death.

Banshee Finale: Will Carrie Choose Lucas Over Her Family?

Antony Starr with Ivana Milicevic

At the beginning of its first season, Banshee executive producer Grey Yaitanes said that beneath the show's sexy, violent action was the beating heart of a love story. And while there's plenty of the former in the Cinemax drama's bullet-riddled Season 1 finale (Friday, 10/9c), Yaitanes promises payoff to the latter.

Banshee: Cinemax blends sexy pulp with a tragic love story

"We tackle both and come to very satisfying answers on both," Yaitanes tells TVGuide.com... read more
