Criminal Minds has not one, but two ongoing mysteries this season — and showrunner Erica Messer didn't even realize it.
"I didn't really think about that until now!" she tells TVGuide.com. "But I guess it's true. We've got a good mystery with Reid's girlfriend and a scary mystery with the season-long unsub. We didn't really plan for it this way, but they both just sort of worked out for this season."

Indeed, producers have been pitching a season-long unsub story line to CBS for years to no avail. "I think they were just more willing this time," Messer says. "Whereas before, other shows were based on that premise on the network. The Mentalist is based on...

I'm so excited about Ben and Bailey's wedding on Grey's Anatomy! Do you have any details? — Nora
NATALIE: Let's just say getting Bailey actually down the aisle will be a miracle! "It's almost like pulling a tugboat to get her to cooperate, but the thing is happening with or without her, and she's got to get on board with the program at some point," Chandra Wilson says. "Bailey can be distracted very easily, and she's already been married and done it in what she thought was the right way and it failed, so there's a lot of fear going into it again." Look for her to get a kick in the butt from both Cristina and Callie.

Meshach Taylor and Joe Mantegna
When Joe Mantegna joined Criminal Minds in Season 3, he had two requests.
"We started talking about story lines and two things I brought up immediately were: I would like to someday explore the fact that [Rossi has] had three wives. Let's have at least one appear. And the other thing was...

You guys love Arrow — and it shows!
The CW drama — which was just named the winner of TVGuide.com's Fall TV Popularity Contest — surged 30 percent Wednesday to 3.7 million viewers and a 1.3 in the adults 18-to-49 demographic, matching its best numbers since the premiere...
It appears as though Halloween might have spooked off some viewers. Even Wednesday night stalwarts Modern Family and Criminal Minds saw decreased ratings.
Modern Family still took the night with a 4.1 rating in the adults-18-to-49 demographic, down from 4.9 last week.
Animal Practice returned Wednesday night for the first time since NBC announced it was pulling the freshman series starting Nov. 14. Despite the impending cancellation, the Justin Kirk comedy earned 3.8 million viewers and a 1.2 rating in the adults-18-to-49 demographic, up one tenth from last week.
Nashville's ratings went, uh, south Wednesday, slumping 29 percent from last week.
The ABC drama earned 6.7 million viewers and a 2.0 in the adults 18-to-49 demographic, shedding almost three million viewers and eight-tenths from its already so-so premiere. Fellow new series Chicago Fire (5.9 million, 1.5) also took a big tumble, dropping more than 20 percent.
On the other hand, The CW's Arrow (3.5 million, 1.3) was steady and again beat NBC's ...
Nashville got off to a decent start Wednesday, but it was Arrow that really hit the ratings mark.
The CW superhero series drew 4 million viewers and a 1.3 in the adults 18-to-49 demographic, making it the network's most-watched series premiere since The Vampire Diaries' debut in 2009. Lead-out Supernatural (2.6 million, 1.0) saw a two-tenths bump.
Arrow also tied NBC's ailing comedy lineup, Animal Practice (3.9 million, 1.1) and Guys with Kids (4.2 million, 1.4), in total viewers in the 8 o'clock hour and in the 18-to-49 and 18-to-34 demos.
