Every week, editors Adam Bryant and Natalie Abrams satisfy your need for TV scoop. Please send all questions to mega_scoop@tvguide.com.

How will Jim and Pam handle the new baby on The Office? — Marisa
NATALIE:
With Pam's hormones in overdrive, she won't know who to trust, causing her to seek out an unlikely ally. "She's clearly in a position where everyone is lying to her to make her feel better, except for Dwight, and she starts to think he's the only person she can trust," executive producer Paul Lieberstein says. After she gives birth, though, it'll be Jim who has problems. "Usually, he wants to get out of work, but it might be a little easier for him at work than at home."

Any news on Calleigh and Eric getting back together on CSI: Miami? — Lizzie, via Twitter
ADAM:
There will be definite movement on that front in the Season 10 premiere. "Right away in the first episode, we... read more

The Good Wife Season 3 Promo Is Such a Tease

The Good Wife

If you think you've seen The Good Wife, think again. When the critically acclaimed show returns this fall, Alicia (Julianna Margulies) may not be quite that "good" any more.

The promo declares... read more

The Office Scoop: James Spader's the CEO, But Who's the Boss?

James Spader

With Michael Scott out of The Office's paper company, Season 8 will see two new men take charge of Dunder Mifflin.

When the NBC comedy returns, we'll learn that James Spader's eccentric Robert California has quickly moved up the ranks of Dunder Mifflin — now he's CEO. But don't expect the series to lose its awkward and endearing charm. "Spader has so much of a similar energy to Steve Carell," co-executive producer Mindy Kaling tells TVGuide.com. "Everything he says is funny"...

Prime Suspect Reboot Finds Its Own Footing, Pulls Back on Sexism

Maria Bello, Prime Suspect

It's hard to imagine that a female TV detective in 2011 would face sexism — Mariska Hargitay's Det. Benson seems to be doing just fine on SVU — but NBC's reboot of the BBC's Prime Suspect will still show Maria Bello's Det. Jane Timoney taking some harsh criticism from her male peers.

NBC boss: SVU's Hargitay will remain in "every episode," Voice returns post-Super Bowl

The original series, which ran sporadically between 1991 and 2006, starred Oscar winner Helen Mirren as a female detective thriving in the world of male policemen in England. Producers say the sexism won't come off as strongly in the reboot. "Obviously it's... read more

Exclusive Shameless Deleted Scene: What If Frank Died?

William H. Macy and Emmy Rossum, Shameless

We've seen Shameless' Frank (William H. Macy) fake his own death, but how would the Gallagher clan react if he actually kicked the bucket?

That answer may be found in the exclusive video below. In a deleted scene from the Season 1 episode "Frank the Plank," Debbie (Emma Kenney), the youngest Gallagher gal, becomes fearful when the police find a body matching Frank's description. (As you'll recall, Frank was actually in Canada after one of his benders.) So what's the tell-tale sign that this stiff is not Frank? Watch the video below to find out! read more

Playboy Club Producer: It’s Not Mad Men and It's Not So Racy

The Playboy Club

Comparisons between NBC's The Playboy Club, the new 1960s-set series that takes place at the first Playboy Club in Chicago, and Mad Men were perhaps inevitable, but the producers and cast of the period drama were on hand at the fall TV previews on Monday to downplay any similarities. "The comparison to Mad Men ends at the era," executive producer Ian Biederman said. "This is a much different show with a much different energy."

Parents Television Council calls for NBC affiliates to drop The Playboy Club

Before the series has even premiered, the show has drawn attention for its name alone, causing the Parents Television Council to question whether a show based on one of the largest adult entertainment industries would be suitable on primetime television. At least one NBC affiliate, Salt Lake City's KSL, has opted to not carry the program, which will be shown in that market by KMYU, the local My Network TV affiliate.

But the producers say it's... read more

Beavis and Butt-Head Is Back! What's Old? What's New?

Beavis and Butt-Head

Ready for more Beavis and Butt-Head? Hope so, because MTV is bringing it back this fall. Series creator Mike Judge (the big brain also behind King of the Hill and the movie Office Space) and MTV President Van Toffler, a self-described B and B fanatic, spoke to reporters Friday at the fall TV previews about why it's coming back and how it'll be different.

WHAT'S OLD?

Fans of the original series, fear not: Beavis and Butt-Head are the same emotionally stunted man-children you remember from their 1993-1997 run on MTV. In fact, it'll mostly seem like no time has passed at all. "I didn't want to do a big, conscious forcing of modern stuff on them, only when it makes sense," Judge says. Millennial nods will include one episode in which the pair sees Twilight and decides they want to "get chicks" by becoming supernatural creatures themselves. So they... read more
