Criminal Minds Promises Explosive Repercussions

Thomas Gibson in Criminal Minds by Sonja Flemming/CBS

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 "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... read more

Critics' Notebook: Worst Show of the Century?

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."

The Joy of Sets Fall Preview Extravaganza! (Part Uno)

Smallville and Supernatural courtesy Warner Home Video

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. read more

Exclusive: Criminal Minds Promo Powered By AC/DC

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, 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... read more

Inside the Head of Criminal Minds' Mastermind

Joe Mantegna and Ed Bernero, Criminal Minds

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 read more

Every Wednesday, senior editors Matt Webb Mitovich and Mickey O'Connor answer your questions!In what capacity we will be seeing Desmond and his constant, Penny, next season on Lost? Any word on that? – MajaMatt: Maja, this is an excellent question. I even rewatched the season finale to confirm my own POV: "Why would we ever see Dez again?" I mean, he and Penny reconnected just before sendind the Oceanic Six on their (actually not-so-)merry way. However... I have it on good authority that Henry Ian Cusick is still a part of the cast, and that Sonya Walger is likely to resurface as well. As one setsider reminds me, "Just like when people die on Lost and you see them again, just because everyone reunited doesn’t mean you've seen the last of them."I was wondering what fans of CSI could look forward to for some of the other characters? There's been a lot of talk about Grissom and Sara but nothing about, say, Catherine or Nick. – JocelynMatt: The good news, if you did not g... read more

Premise: A procedural thriller about the FBI's Behavioral Analysis Unit, which profiles criminals to solve crimes. The ensemble drama relies on the diversity of the team, which includes a young genius and a seasoned leader tortured by a past case. Unlike other crime dramas that focus on science, this series is very cerebral and almost Holmesian in its deductive analysis of the crimes and their perpetrators.
