Comic Book Men (Sunday, 10/9c) is best described as Pawn Stars plus Clerks multiplied by comic books: one part docu-series about the crazy clerks, quirky customers and collectibles at Smith's Jay and Silent Bob's Secret Stash comic book store in Red Bank, N.J., and one part talk show, where the guys gather together — no confessional needed — to discuss the...

Amy Acker, known for portraying a sweet egghead who was enslaved on Joss Whedon's vampire-detective series Angel, won't be playing the victim on Friday's Grimm (9/8c, NBC).
In "Tarantella," Acker plays Lena, an alluring woman who happens to be a deadly black widow-type of creature, or in Grimm-speak, a Spinnetod. "It's a spider-creature who, in order to survive, has to sacrifice or eat three men every five years," the actress tells TVGuide.com.
