How Will "Huddy" Impact House?

House

After six seasons of sexual tension and House's ever-so-crude attempts at flirtation, he and Cuddy have finally given in and are giving the relationship thing a whirl. But after witnessing Huddy finally share a passionate kiss at the end of last season's finale of House, you can't help but wonder, "Where do we go from here?"

House casting: Candice Bergen to play Cuddy's Mom

"We're going to play it through," says executive producer Katie Jacobs, who adds that the time finally felt right to explore the relationship. "It felt wrong that ... read more

How I Met Your Mother's Carter Bays: Season 6 Will Be Our Best One Yet

How I Met Your Mother

Barney Stinson is never shy about using superlatives on How I Met Your Mother, but the man who writes those lines, creator/executive producer Carter Bays, exercises greater restraint.

Except when describing the upcoming sixth season.

"Honestly, I never say stuff like this, but I think this is will be our best season yet," Bays tells TVGuide.com. "I'm going to call my shot and say that. At the end of last season, I think we were all feeling really old, and there's been kind of a rejuvenation around here. I think a lot of it has to do with the stories of the season."

After two seasons primarily of stand-alone episodes, the time-jumping sitcom will ...

Catch Him If You Can: Lone Star's James Wolk on the Art of the Con

James Wolk

It's a provocative premise: In Fox's Lone Star, Bob Allen has been raised a Texas con man, grifting through life until he falls in love for real — twice. Now he wants to go straight, without losing either woman, or the worlds they live in (respectively, an oil-rich dynasty in Houston, and a tight-knit small town in Midland.)

Video: Lone Star cast talks about the pilot

Following someone leading a double life on TV can be done — see: Don Draper, Dexter, Nurse Jackie — but it can be tricky. Will Lone Star be a 22-episode tease? Will his ruse never fall apart? Will his wives never meet? And if they do, does the show morph into something else? Series star James Wolk talks to TVGuide.com about taking on his first major role (and changing his professional name to go with it), playing the sociopath you root for, and what he thinks of the show's super-sexy ad campaign. ...

Dancing with the Stars Feels the Pressure, Gets Ready to Step It Up

Dancing With The Stars

Tom Bergeron felt the pressure. So did Brooke Burke.

After Dancing with the Stars' surprisingly strong Season 10 — highlighted by beating American Idol in the ratings for the first time — the co-hosts are well aware that the season will be tough to follow, let alone top.

"I think it surprised even us how strong we came out the gate last season and how well it held," Bergeron tells TVGuide.com. "It sort of became the man-bites-dog story because ...

The New Season in Review: Monday Madness

Lone Star, The Event

Forget surviving Premiere Week. Just making it through Monday is going to take nearly superhuman endurance this season. So many diverse and worthy choices, I almost won't miss The Big Bang Theory being shuffled off to Thursdays.

Let's start with the new, and in each case, I'll reprint my Fall Preview blurb with some additional comments. And then on to the handful of returning favorites I've been able to screen in advance.

From the top, my favorite new drama: Fox's Lone Star (9/8c). "This fall's best and most original drama taps a gusher of intrigue and twisty romance, with star-is-born James Wolk the most irresistible con man since Lost's Sawyer. Where is this story going? Can't wait to find out."

To elaborate: Newcomer James Wolk... read more

Chuck Producers Josh Schwartz, Chris Fedak: Chuck Has Mommy Issues

Yvonne Strahovski, Zachary Levi

Chuck's Season 4 finds Chuck on the hunt for his mother — who doesn't seem to want to be found. TVGuide.com caught up with executive producers Josh Schwartz and Chris Fedak to get the lowdown  on everyone's family issues this year, including an impending baby and Morgan's brush with death — well, Casey will want to kill him if he keeps going after daughter Alex, right?

Linda Hamilton to play Chuck's mom — and guess who's pregnant?

TVGuide.com: If before the show was about Chuck (Zachary Levi) trying to be a man, and then Chuck trying to be a spy, now what is Chuck trying to be?
Chris Fedak:
This season is Chuck trying to find his mom. That's the mythology, that's the big search of this season. At the end of last year, his father gave him a quest, a big mission, and that was to... read more

The '20s, Gangsters and Man-Boys: A Conversation with Boardwalk Empire's Terence Winter

Boardwalk Empire

Why is Terence Winter's first post-Sopranos series again about New Jersey gangsters? Two words: Martin Scorsese.

"HBO gave me the book Boardwalk Empire in a meeting and said, 'See what you think,'" Winter says. "On my way out the door, they added, 'Oh, by the way, Martin Scorsese is attached to this... if it goes... if you can find anything." I stopped, turned around and said, 'I guarantee you there is a series in this book. I don't care what it is; I will find it.'"

Scorsese aside, the two-time Emmy-winning writer on The Sopranos quickly discovered Boardwalk Empire could be a sprawling epic on its own.
