Neil Patrick Harris
Sure, the 61st Primetime Emmy Awards didn't boast the fireworks of last week's Kanye-"enhanced" VMAs, but CBS' entertaining three-hour telecast ran smoothly, a credit to host (and producer) Neil Patrick Harris, whose competent hand and effortless improvisational timing made him the subject of more than one of this year's top moments.

Dr. Gregory House has officially gone crazy, and fans are about to dive down the rabbit hole with him when House returns on Monday (8/7c, Fox).
The two-hour Season 6 premiere finds House confined to the mental institution we saw him walking into in the final moments of last season. If you're a fan of Hugh Laurie's cantankerous doc, you'll certainly be happy with the premiere, as he and Wilson (he's in one quick scene) are the only main characters to make an appearance. "It was daunting, I was daunted and I still am," Laurie told TVGuide.com about House's solo flight. "It was a big thing to take on for everybody, to set it in a completely different world, with a completely different cast of characters. A lot of people have taken a lot of risks with this. If nothing else, it's exciting."
In the meantime, TVGuide.com turned to Laurie's co-star Lisa Edelstein to find up what's coming up on this season of House. She reveals what the hospital is like without House, who might give Cuddy a new romantic distraction and what she thinks is the ultimate endgame for "Huddy."

Every week, editors Mickey O'Connor and Adam Bryant satisfy your need for TV scoop. Please send all questions to email@example.com.
Since CSI: Miami's Adam Rodriguez is joining Ugly Betty, that cliff-hanger must not have worked out very well for Eric Delko, huh? — Jimmy
ADAM: Oh, ye of little faith, Jimmy. Eric Delko may be wandering around the Florida Everglades, but he's definitely still alive and even has a little more story to tell. "I didn't want to leave it on that note; I felt that would be cheating the fans," Rodriguez tells me. As a result, he'll appear in seven more episodes to give Delko a proper send-off. And for all you Calleighko 'shippers, yes, they will get closure.
As the title of the season finale hinted, will there really be two of everything this season on Fringe? — Matt
MICKEY: We posed this question to Blair Brown, who plays the cybernetic corporate shark Nina Sharp, and she thinks that's pretty much accurate. There are two realities, after all. But here's a question: How can Dr. Bell live over there? Why hasn't he bumped into his other self? We have no idea, but did Brown say too much when she revealed that...

MICKEY: Remember how cute it was when Tom said he wanted to go back to college to study Mandarin and international marketing? Well, Lynette doesn't think it's so cute when she catches him cheating.
So sad that T.R. Knight is leaving Grey's Anatomy. What can you tell me about the premiere? — Lisa

It's finally here, folks: the premiere of the new Melrose Place! The rebooted Melrose follows a familiar formula: A dashing array of twentysomethings pursue life and love in Los Angeles, where they all live in the same apartment complex. But there is much that is new as well, including a multiepisode murder storyline in which many of the Place's residents are suspects. Here's a quick primer before you watch the premiere (Tuesday, 9/8c, CW):
