On the Set: Private Practice Prepares for the Aftermath of Charlotte's Attack

Private Practice

"It's not anything that the audience can't handle," KaDee Strickland stresses as she sits in the living room of Sam's beachfront house on the Private Practice set during one of the few days she's not covered in prosthetic cuts, scrapes and bruises.

The "it" in this situation is her character Charlotte's sexual assault and brutal beating in this Thursday's episode of Private Practice (10/9c on ABC).

Private Practice tackles rape during sweeps

At the end of last week's episode, Charlotte walked out of her office at the hospital only to encounter a deranged man whose face the audience has yet to see (though we know he's played by Buffy alum Nicholas Brendon). After a harsh smack, he shoved her back into the dark office as the episode faded to black.

"The fact that she has this happen in her place of business is a very powerful statement because she has to go back to it," Strickland says. "It will never be the same thing to... read more

What's up with Paul's creepy wife on Desperate Housewives? — Cassidy
MICKEY: It's clear after Sunday's episode that Beth's mom really wants her to remain married to Paul. (Why is another question.) She even ordered her daughter to sleep with him, which is kind of creepy. Once she does, though, we'll get a very different perspective on the self-proclaimed virgin.

Dexter is getting good. Can you tease what's ahead? — Alex
ADAM:
Now that Lumen's abductors know she's still alive, the guilty parties will look to destroy the evidence of their crimes — namely those barrels of bodies in the swamp. That task is made slightly more difficult when... read more

Boardwalk Empire's Michael Shannon Doesn't Know How Creepy He Can Be

Michael Shannon

Even as a high school thespian, Michael Shannon conveyed gravitas. "I would always play the old guy; I guess I had a good old-guy voice," he says. Over the telephone, his gravelly timbre does make him seem older than his baby-faced 36 years.

As Nelson Van Alden on HBO's Boardwalk Empire -- a gritty confection of organized crime in 1920s Atlantic City created by The Sopranos' Terence Winter and executive-produced by Martin Scorsese -- that deep voice serves Shannon well. He plays a federal agent tasked with enforcing Prohibition, the so-called "good guy" whose personal faith and unrelenting drive for justice... read more

13 Bubble Shows — Which Will Survive?

Joshua Jackson and Anna Torv

Let's raise a glass (of something bubbly perhaps) to TV shows gone too soon: Here's to Arrested Development, Pushing Daisies, Moonlight, Freaks and Geeks, Veronica Mars, My So Called Life... we hardly knew ye. Here we are, just six weeks into the fall season, and we already have two more names to add to that list. (R.I.P., Lone Star and My Generation.) Which shows will be next? These 13 are in the most danger, due to low ratings, poor performances among younger viewers and other typical bad signs. Is your favorite show on the list?

Weeds' Alexander Gould Gets a Killer Promotion

Weeds

If you're just starting to watch Weeds, you might want to stop reading. Because at least one of the main characters, Shane Botwin (Alexander Gould), is currently undergoing a dark metamorphosis.

Gould was shocked when he read the script for the show's fifth season finale, in which his character, Shane Botwin, clocks and kills Pilar, his mother's nemesis, with a croquet mallet. Because of that murder, Season 6 takes place on the run, and an ever-darkening Shane isn't exactly remorseful. Nancy (Mary-Louise Parker) has tried to reboot her wayward son's moral education, but, well, Shane has always been a little off. Gould, now 16, tells us how Shane has changed over six seasons, why he loves playing Shane as a mini-Dexter and whether he thinks he's capable of killing again.

Mega Buzz: Modern Family's Halloween, Hawaii Five-0's Ex and The Event

Blair Underwood, Sofia Vergara, Scott Caan

Every week, senior editors Mickey O'Connor and Adam Bryant satisfy your need for TV scoop. Please send all questions to mega_scoop@tvguide.com.

I love Halloween episodes! Tell me about Modern Family's. — Denis
MICKEY:
It'll focus on a horror of another sort: Gloria's accent! "She tries to fix her accent, but of course that doesn't happen," Sofia Vergara tells us. Ariel Winter, who plays Gloria's brainy step-granddaughter Alex, adds: "Gloria takes on some new weird way of speaking." Since "Ay, Manny!" is already my favorite non sequitur exclamation, I can't wait to see what rich verbal stylings Mrs. Delgado-Pritchett will serve up next.

Can you give me some scoop about Danno on Hawaii Five-0? — Nikki
ADAM: Tired of his ex-wife's angry phone calls? Get ready to... read more
