It didn't take long for things to heat up again between Nico and Kirby. But while Nico is enjoying her guilt-free romance, Kirby's plan to take it public isn't exactly welcome news. And things only get worse when she begins clashing with her company's new CEO (guest star James Lesure). Elsewhere, Victory finds out she isn't the only one with relationship baggage when Rodrigo tells her something surprising about himself, and Wendy's home life turns tumultuous once again after she becomes consumed by the John Lennon movie project. — Brie Hearn

The following contains spoiler information from Wednesday night's Criminal Minds premiere.Criminal Minds fans got their answer on Wednesday night, when it was revealed that SSA Kate Joyner was the agent critically, and eventually fatally, injured by the exploding SUV. But Thomas Gibson's Hotchner didn't escape the tragedy scot-free. No, not by a stretch. "In the aftermath of Kate's death, Hotch will ignore medical advice and continue to work with his post-explosion injuries, putting himself in danger of permanent injury," executive producer Ed Bernero tells TVGuide.com. "The team will then slowly realize that Hotch is working almost non-stop, and begin to worry further about his health." Of course, Minds' even bigger bang came when the ambulance driven into the clear by Derek Morgan went kaboom in the middle of Central Park. Shemar Moore obviously had only one take to get that scene right, as his character was revealed to have ducked out the driver door just seconds before the expl...

Here we are at "hump night" of the first week of the official TV season. Or, given that NBC is giving us a line-up of the atrocious Knight Rider, the dishonestly monikered America's Got Talent and the turgid Lipstick Jungle, maybe we should rechristen Wednesdays "lump night."

Ahhh, Autumn. The smell of dying leaves. The sound of crying children shuffling back to school. TV Guide's annual "Fall Preview" issue kicking ass all over newsstands. It's the most wonderful time of the year. Aside from Christmas. And my birthday. And any time I spend with my goddaughter Maddy, who is the most awesomest kid on the planet ever. Still, it's pretty bangin' around now and with over 100 shows launching, plus oodles of old ones coming back, I figured it's a good time to look at some recent releases that should help you get up to speed before the new season runs you down.

Thomas Gibson in Criminal Minds by Sonja Flemming/CBS
CBS has unveiled its first promo for the new season of Criminal Minds. Helping deliver the message with style are veteran rockers AC/DC, TVGuide.com has learned exclusively.Running in 30- and 60-second versions, the TV spot is best described (by myself) as "goose bump-tastic," and is sure to tease hardcore viewers with fleeting images (watch a bloodied Hotch collapse at the hospital!), flashes (another, massive explosion) and sound bites from the immediate aftermath of the season-finale SUV bombing that critically injured at least one and possibly two team members. Watch it here:Laying the pulse-pounding foundation for the promo is AC/DC's "Rock 'N' Roll Train," from the band's first studio album in eight years, Black Ice (streeting Oct. 21). Minds exec producer Ed Bernero, having been afforded an advance listen to the track a while back, seized the chance to edit the promo himself. "We love AC/DC," he tells me, "and just wanted to play with our images and this amazing piece of musi...

A Chicago cop for 10 years, exec producer Ed Bernero brings street smarts to Criminal Minds' (Wednesday, Sept. 24 at 9 pm/ET, CBS) explosive new season. Here, in a guest column, he details how his days on the force help inform the decisions he makes now behind the scenes.
"2031! I got a foot chase northbound on Western from Argyle!"
Raw emotion. It streams from the radio even before you understand a word that's being said. It's a higher pitch — a staccato anti-rhythm — that is unmistakable. When you hear a fellow cop screaming while simultaneously sprinting, holding a gun and climbing fences, you sit up and take notice.
But I wasn't listening to this particular foot chase. I was the guy panting into the radio. My suspect led me from Ashland Avenue through a couple of yards, up an alley, through more yards, over fences, across another street, then another alley and ev
