A.J. Cook, Esai Morales
The BAU will get a new boss on Wednesday's Criminal Minds, but he's an old, familiar face to one person.
Unbeknownst to the rest of the team, JJ (A.J. Cook) has a history with newly instated section chief Mateo "Matt" Cruz (Esai Morales), with whom she worked at the State Department during her year away from the BAU. But don't think she recommended him for the vacated position (RIP Strauss!).

Super Fun Night took a super big hit.
The Rebel Wilson comedy slipped to 6.7 million viewers and a 2.5 in the 18-to-49 demographic Wednesday, down seven tenths from last week and more than a point off Modern Family (10.4 million, 3.8). The rest of ABC's shows The Middle (8.1 million, 2.2), Back in the Game (6.4 million, 1.7) and ...

Luke Mitchell and Peyton List
The CW's beyond-generic The Tomorrow People feels like yesterday's news — and not just because it's adapted from a '70s British sci-fi series. Turns out this isn't as durable a property as Doctor Who, or maybe the reboot is just that bad. Cut from the same angsty pattern of so many CW supernatural shows, Tomorrow (Wednesday, 9/8c) offers up a duller than usual gaggle of pretty, overripe CW teens-in-their-20s with superpowers. The "Tomorrow People," we learn in an endless prattle of exposition, are a cluster of genetic mutations whose special gifts emerge upon adolescence. Forget pimples. This subculture specializes in the "three T's": teleportation, telepathy, telekinesis. They forgot "tired," "tepid" and "too too derivative," which much better describes the experience of meeting these lost kids.

Super Fun Night had a solid, though not super, debut.
The Rebel Wilson comedy premiered Wednesday to 8.2 million viewers and a 3.2 in the adults 18-to-49 demographic, becoming the season's No. 2 new comedy behind The Crazy Ones. Though it dropped a full point from lead-in Modern Family (10.9 million, 4.2), Super Fun Night had better retention ...

Do you have any Scandal scoop not related to Mistress-gate? — Jennifer
NATALIE: Mistress-gate could actually be the least of the worries for Olivia's team and the White House when the season's overarching mystery is revealed. The cast adamantly agrees that this is one of the biggest scandals in the history of the show. And if you don't believe them, find out what happens to Cyrus when he discovers the truth: "Somewhere in the first couple episodes, Cyrus is transported to a very ominous location for a very ominous meeting in a trunk of a car," Jeff Perry teases.

Criminal Minds showrunner Erica Messer can sum up Season 9 in one word: backstories.
"That's our focus this year," she tells TVGuide.com. "We're telling backstories and origin stories. We want to give everybody some insight into our heroes because we give insight to the unsubs every week. We're going to hit 200 [episodes] and it feels like, 'Let's tell the audience things they never knew before.'"
That involves an old beau for Garcia (Kristen Vangsness), The Reaper (C. Thomas Howell) and Haley (Meredith Monroe) returning (but not from the dead), and filling in the blanks of JJ's (A.J. Cook) year in the State Department during Season 6 — with some help from new BAU section chief Matt Cruz (Esai Morales), with whom she worked there. What's the deal with those two? How does Garcia's ex come back into the picture? Get the scoop on the season below:
A.J Cook and Esai Morales
Criminal Minds' ninth season, premiering Sept. 25, "is shaping up to be the season of J.J.," reports A.J. Cook of her character, who was written out of the CBS procedural during Season 6. (Fan backlash led to Cook's rehiring for Season 7.) "We're going to use the serendipitous gift of Season 6 to explain with flashbacks what happened when she was working for the Pentagon and why she came back as a much tougher character. I've never had a chance to flex my acting muscles like this on the show!"
