Season 8 of Dexter will premiere on...
Soon after news broke of the horrific December 14 elementary-school shootings in Newtown, Conn., the broadcast and cable networks scoured their schedules for anything that might be deemed offensive or inappropriate in light of the massacre.
"Caution carries the day," says one network executive. "You look up and down the schedule for shows and promos that might be uncomfortably close to the subject matter. Then you ask yourself, 'Are we being sensitive in a correct way or are we being overly careful?'"

I hear Beckett's therapist will be back on Castle. What can you tell us about that? — Angela
ADAM: Michael Dorn will indeed reprise his role as Dr. Burke during February sweeps. But what brings Beckett back to his couch? Well, it's not because of any problems with Castle. Instead, it will be another run-in with Sen. Bracken (guest star Jack Coleman) that sends Beckett back to therapy. "A murder seems to lead to his doorstep and Kate thinks this her opportunity to finally get the man who was responsible for her mother's murder behind bars," creator Andrew W. Marlowe, adding that Beckett may once again find herself out of control. "Nothing is as it seems," he says. "The case leads us into really interesting moral territory for our character."

In selecting a top-10 list for this year in TV, I found myself focusing on shows that made noise. Not every show on this list is a niche critic's darling, although a few certainly are. Some have a more populist appeal, not that there's anything wrong with that. This may also help explain why there's no new representation from the dismal fall season we just endured. (I like Elementary, Nashville and The New Normal, and will miss Last Resort, but none jumped out as being particularly significant.)
If I had a second 10, I might have included...

Deb has crossed over to the dark side.
Dexter's foul-mouthed lieutenant took a very dark turn on Sunday's finale, shooting her long-time frenemy LaGuerta (Lauren Velez) in order to protect her brother Dexter (Michael C. Hall). So what does this mean for Deb (Jennifer Carpenter)? TVGuide.com turned to showrunner Scott Buck to get the scoop on whether the Morgan siblings will be able to cover up this murder and so much more! Plus: Is Season 8 really Dexter's last? Read below!
Sunday's second-season finale of Showtime's Homeland was titled "The Choice." Which could just as easily have applied to the seventh-season finale of Dexter that immediately preceded it. The ones making the ultimate choice, though, are the viewers, who must decide if they're willing to go where these dark bundles of insanity take them.
I echo Homeland's Brody when I say: "I'm in." I realize it might be hipper to join the Twitter snark parade, especially when it comes to Homeland's giant leaps of credibility-defying faith, but imagine how dull and dreary this fall would have been without this one-two punch of Sunday night high-octane entertainment.

Dexter's Season 7 finale couldn't have been more aptly titled. That's because it wasn't Dexter (Michael C. Hall) who made the most surprising move in this season's closing hour, it was Deb (Jennifer Carpenter), who definitely started off the new year on a bad note. But we'll get to that. First, let's take a look at what events landed Dexter in that fateful shipping container that has surely changed Deb's life forever.

Dexter's world may come crashing down around him this Sunday.
On Dexter's Season 7 finale (9/8c, Showtime), the series' titular serial killer will have to face the possibility that Hannah (Yvonne Strahovski), whom Dexter (Michael C. Hall) turned in to the cops last week, may decide to retaliate and turn her former beloved in as well. But she could be the least of his worries now that Hector Estrada, the man who ordered the hit on his mother, was able to escape. Will Hector turn to La Guerta (Lauren Velez) lest Dexter find him first? TVGuide.com turned to Hall to find out what's in store for America's favorite serial killer:
TV's killer cauldron is getting crowded. Now that viewers have been thrilled by the likes of
The Walking Dead's Governor, Dexter's titular killer and American Horror Story's Bloody Face, the broadcast networks are looking to maim cable's momentum by airing their own dark, twisted tales this midseason.
