Having Denny appear on one episode of Grey's Anatomy, because Izzie's memories were triggered by a case, is one thing. But to make him a ghostly fixture in her life and carry on some kind of romance from beyond the grave is beyond ridiculous. — Evie
MATT: I hear you. Getting it on with a ghost is so circa-1981 Barbara Hershey. Now, if s-e-x between living, breathing humans is what floats your boat — and lord knows the pickings are slim if you only watch Grey's, Ghost Whisperer and Supernatural these days — Drs. Owen Hunt and Cristina Yang might soon move beyond spontaneous necking and into full-on boinking. As Kevin McKidd himself tells me, "At the end of the day, this is Grey's Anatomy, so you can bet good money on it!" (Read my full Q&A with "McArmy" on Thursday. Great Scot, he gave up crazy Journeyman scoop!) As for Izzie and Denny, that "ghost story" isn't ending any time soon, seeing as Jeffrey Dean Morgan still has a few more appearances left (says EW's Ausiello).
I've missed Chase and Cameron on House, and was thrilled to see them in significant roles again. Are they more involved in future episodes? — Shane
MICKEY: Though the much-touted "hostage" episode airing Nov. 25 is kind of the Thirteen Show (Olivia Wilde is great in it), Chase and Cameron do ...
Fringe returned Tuesday with an all-new episode, and guess what? We still have a lot of burning questions about Olivia & Co. So we got on the phone with executive producer Jeff Pinkner, who gave us answers that were at times illuminating, frustrating, humorous and, of course, confusing. In the second of two parts (see the first part here), Pinkner holds forth on Peter Bishop's parentage, Walter's reliability and the real Massive Dynamic.
"The Pattern" conspiracy became more widespread this week as Agent Broyles revealed that it contains numerous funded cells that trade science instead of drugs or money. One of these , ZFT is suspected as the culprit behind infecting an agent with a large parasite that attaches to his heart. Olivia travels to Frankfurt to find answers, and meets up with a"friend" from her past, while Peter and Walter try to study the creature back at the lab. The problem is that the one person who may have answers is unattainable. Does the gang save the infected agent, and who is behind the group ZFT? Read the recap after the jump!
Fringe returns Tuesday with an all-new episode (9 pm/ET, Fox), and guess what? We still have a lot of burning questions about Olivia & Co. for executive producer Jeff Pinkner, so many that we had to split them into two stories. In this first part, he answers our questions about The Observer, Astrid Farnsworth and William Bell. The conversation is, of course, illuminating, frustrating, humorous and confusing.

Last week proved that as tough as soap diva Erica Kane is, she ultimately met her match on the ballroom floor. Tonight someone else will have to accept defeat (with any luck, as gracefully as Susan Lucci did) when this contest downsizes from five to four contestants.
Read on for previews of Law & Order: SVU, Fringe, 90210 and NCIS.
John Noble and Joshua Jackson

Question: I am confused why some critics have stated that Joshua Jackson was miscast in the role of Peter on Fringe. I couldn't disagree more. Joshua is a good actor and Peter has good chemistry with Olivia. If anything they need to give him more to do than just be a babysitter all the time. They are wasting his fine talents, which is hardly his fault. (However, I must say he would have been miscast in the army doctor role over on Grey's Anatomy! He was too young for that role ...
Matt Roush: I'm not sure who you're reading, but I've got no beef with Joshua Jackson on Fringe. His snarky take ...

I'm going to be speaking with some of the powers that be over at Fringe, so I need your burning questions about J.J. Abrams' Fox spookfest. I have a few swimming around in my noggin, but I'd love to ask them yours as well. Here's what I've got so far:
Eric Dane (Grey's Anatomy), Joshua Jackson (Fringe) and Gary Sinise (CSI: NY)
Senior editors Matt Webb Mitovich and Mickey O'Connor answer your questions.
What have you got for Grey's Anatomy that isn't about Mer and Der? — BethAnn
Matt: Mmmm, this vittle made it to my desk just before deadline, and goodness, it's tasty. What you may know: This week, Sloan counsels the "Mason-Dixon line"-averse Callie on the ways of love. What you don't know: He teaches by doing. What does that mean?!
Fringe is the most addictive new show on television! Give me some scoop on when Olivia and Peter will get all romantic. — Keith
Mickey: Well, Keith, I hate to disappoint you (perv), but it's going to be a while. This show is so not about sex right now. My Fringe mole tells me ...
This week a new (not dead) character from Olivia's childhood causes her to have major angst (and cranky pants) while she, Walter and Peter investigate the gory death of a woman whose head explodes in a diner (after killing the other patrons with strong levels of radiation). Also, Peter and Nina meet and strike a bargain while Broyles and Olivia butt heads over emotional involvement in cases. In other news, Walter's third favorite flower is Hyacinth and he craves blue cotton candy. On to the show...
When Jasika Nicole auditioned for J.J. Abrams' Fringe (Tuesdays, 9 pm/ET, Fox), she was told it was for a sci-fi series that incorporated humor. As FBI Special Agent Astrid Farnsworth, though, Nicole isn't exactly given a lot of the punchlines, saddled as she is with doing a lot of the heavy lifting in the laboratory of mad scientist Dr. Walter Bishop (John Noble). With a background in music theater and a talent for drawing (check out her work, including an autobiographical comic, on her website), Jasika (it's pronounced Jah-SEEK-uh) talks to us about working with John Noble, why Astrid returned to the lab and her theory about the identity of the elusive William Bell.
