Joanna Garcia, Privileged
This Tuesday at 9 pm/ET, the CW's Privileged wraps up what one can only hope is but the first of several seasons. But what's the reality? Will the charming series get a Season 2 pick-up? And if so, what's on tap for the super-cute and ultra-quippy Megan? JoAnna Garcia shared with us a sneak peek at what's to come. Plus: Is talk of an on-set romance true?
TVGuide.com: We have come full circle. I moderated a Paley Center panel previewing the first season of Privileged, and now we are here on what we optimists like to think is perhaps the eve of a Season 2 renewal.
JoAnna Garcia: I think we have a really good shot. I think it's going to come down to the future programming that they have on [the CW], and how long they think each show is going to last. I don't think that developmentally speaking, there is a ton going on, so....
TVGuide.com: Well, there is that one pilot about young and fabulous vampires....
Garcia: Yeah, and there's a Melrose [Place reboot].... But I think they really like our show! Obviously, 90210 has been a focus for them, but I believe we've done everything we can. I'm so proud of this season — and what's to come. [Series creator] Rina [Mimoun], being a consummate professional, already has the second season nailed down and is presenting it this week to the studio.
TVGuide.com: Has she shared with you the places Megan will go if there's a pick-up?
Garcia: Yeah, we talk about ...

At this rate, Meredith might not ever get to call herself Derek's fiancée, let alone blush as his bride.
Grey's Anatomy is MIA for the next few weeks, but the ABC serial will return with a bang on March 12, when Derek decides to call it quits.
Already, of course, Dr. Shepherd is in a dark place, having ...
When TNT's Saving Grace returns on March 2, the mood in the squad room will be a bit ... different ... given the new pairings of partners.
Not only are Ham (Kenneth Johnson) and Butch (Bailey Chase) a long ways from completing each other's sentences — in fact, they tend to stomp right over 'em — but guest-star Christina Ricci's Det. Abby Charles rubs Holly Hunter's Grace the wrong way right from the get-go.
By the first episode's end, though, I warmed up to Ricci. Maybe you will, too? After the jump, watch an exclusive video clip where Abby reveals to Grace the surprising reason why she was inexcusably late on her first day.
Sprague Grayden, 24
First daughter Olivia Taylor got quite an introduction last week on Fox's 24, stubbornly balking at being pulled away from a business meeting by Secret Service agent extraordinaire Aaron Pierce. Is the president's surviving offspring not much of a momma's girl? Might she cause unnecessary headaches for the leader of the free world? Joan of Arcadia and Jericho alumna Sprague Grayden gave us a preview (well, what little she could!) of the story ahead.
TVGuide.com: Were you a fan of 24 before you got this role?
Sprague Grayden: Yeah, I was, so I was very excited. I've been blessed to do so many different shows, but I've never done an action show, really. On Jericho, other people got to ride horses and shoot guns, but ...
Claire told Kate, "Don't you dare bring him back." Charlie warned Jack, "You're not supposed to raise him." But were those messages not about Aaron but John Locke? As part of this week's "Getting Lost," exec producers Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse address the theory that Jeremy Bentham's return to the island could be a very bad thing.
Also in the new "Getting Lost":
• Lance Reddick teases this week's particularly surprising appearance by Matthew Abaddon.
• Team Darlton delivers good news for Sawyer fans.
• What is your answer to this week's Burning Question?

I want my own Eliza Dushku. Or at the very least, I may want to gift a favorite nephew with one for his birthday. But just how much does it cost to "hire" an "active" for an "engagement"? In this third slice of my sit-down with Joss Whedon, the creator of Fox's Dollhouse (Fridays at 9 pm/ET) reveals the approximate ballpark figure for Echo's oh-so-specialized services — shattering my own best guesstimate in the process.
Other topics covered in this video:
• Joss and Fox famously went back and forth on what Dollhouse is "about," scrapping and reshooting the pilot in the process. Which moment from the early episodes is truest to Whedon's vision?
• Does the original Dollhouse pilot still exist somewhere? Or are we seeing pieces of it in this week's episode, which offers a bit of an origin story for Harry Lennix's Boyd?
• And the biggie: Is it true that Whedon is done with network television, having gotten a taste of "freedom" with Dr. Horrible's Sing-A-Long Blog and his upcoming feature Cabin in the Woods?
Get Joss' candid answers, after the jump.
Pushing Daisies' final, unaired episodes are going to see the light of day — just not necessarily on television. Find out who will get first dibs on these "lost" episodes, after the jump.
