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 can't wait to see how the new season of Fringe goes down. What have you heard? — Martha
MICKEY: As it did in Season 1, the Fringe division will have an in-house adversary, a powerful government official who thinks Agent Broyles gives his team far too much latitude. Her actions will complicate things for Walter & Co., who will already be burdened by the secret sabotage of Nolivia (the "over-there" Olivia).

Can I have some Addison-and-Sam Private Practice scoop, please? — Jamie
ADAM: Well, series star Kate Walsh is thrilled by the coupling, but she hopes the new season will show read more

Ratings: Tony Awards Lag Behind NBA Finals

Sean Hayes, 2010 Tony Awards

Basketball beat Broadway.

The National Basketball Association finals on ABC attracted a bigger audience than CBS' telecast of the 64th annual Tony Awards.

Despite familiar faces such as winners Scarlett Johansson and Catherine Zeta-Jones, as well as performers like Lea Michele and Matthew Morrison, this year's Tonys averaged 7 million viewers and a 1.2 rating in the 18-to-49 demo, an 8 percent dip from last year's ceremony.

ABC easily won the night thanks to... read more

Critic's Notebook: Bad, Blood and the Tonys

Breaking Bad

Devastating to the last shot: That was AMC's Breaking Bad this remarkable season. Sunday's season finale didn't so much wrap things up as trap our anti-heroes in a terrifying no-exit vortex that forces Walt to force Jesse to cross the final line of no return—to commit cold-blooded murder to save their skins.

No half measures for this series, ever. And harking back to the brilliant "Fly" episode, the contamination (moral) is now complete.

Breaking Bad: Have We Seen the Last of "Good Guy" Jesse?

Aaron Paul, Breaking Bad

[WARNING: The following story contains plot details from the Season 3 finale of Breaking Bad. Read at your own risk.]

For much of Breaking Bad's superb third season, Jesse (Aaron Paul) considered himself "the bad guy."

Check out photos of the Breaking Bad cast

He blamed himself for the death of girlfriend Jane (Krysten Ritter), who gave up her sober lifestyle to begin using again with Jesse. But despite that — and Jesse's meth-making efforts with Walt (Bryan Cranston) — Jesse was never a murderer, which Walt realized in this season's penultimate episode, when he killed two rival drug dealers instead of letting Jesse go through with it.

In Sunday's heartbreaking and shocking season finale... read more

True Blood

True Blood
9/8c HBO
Another season premiere, another body in Merlotte's parking lot. And just like last time, the third season begins mere moments after the second ended, with Eggs shot in the head, Tara inconsolably hysterical and Andy covering for a deadeye Jason. Of course, what everyone wants to know, like Sookie, is what happened to Bill, but there are other mysteries to tide us over in the meantime, including Sam's journey to find his birth family and a crisis in the vampire community over an uptick in the abuse of V.

Breaking Bad Finale: All Innocence Is Lost

Breaking Bad

Run.

That's what Breaking Bad's Walter White (Bryan Cranston) told his meth-making cohort Jesse (Aaron Paul) to do moments after Walt hit two murderous rival drug dealers with his car in Season 3's penultimate episode. In doing so, Walt protected Jesse from the wrath of their boss, Gus (Giancarlo Esposito), who also employed the now-dead thugs.
