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.

Ask Matt: Defending Fringe's Joshua Jackson, Continuing the Heroes Debate and More!

John Noble and Joshua Jackson

TV Guide's Senior Critic Matt Roush takes your TV questions. Have a rant, rave or burning question about your favorite show you'd like addressed? E-mail him here!

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 ...

Got Any Burning Questions About Fringe?

John Noble, Joshua Jackson and Anna Torv, Fringe

Mega Buzz on Grey's, Fringe, CSI: NY and More!

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
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
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 ... read more

Fringe Episode Recap: "The Cure"

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...

Fringe: Jasika Nicole Hints at Astrid's Secrets

Jasika Nicole

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.

Fringe Episode Recap: "Power Hungry"

A shocking character returns from Olivia's past and adds new layers of mystery in this week's episode, along with a "phenomenon of the week" story: a man who can harness the power of electricity accidentally causes mayhem, death and destruction everywhere he goes. Olivia, Peter and Walter try to figure out which one of Walter's secret experiments in the '70s could have caused this condition, and try to stop the man before he kills anyone else. In other news, Broyles brings Olivia a latte. Does this mean he's over himself now? Stay tuned.

Jonny Lee Miller, Eli Stone

Eli Stone
10:02 pm/ET ABC
C'mon, you knew Eli's eyes would open at the end of last season, didn't you? Of course, what kind of condition he's in remains to be seen, though Nate said the aneurysm was gone and, in tonight's second season premiere, so are Eli's visions — at least for the last six months.

After reading Alex's Fringe ...

Question: After reading Alex's Fringe rant, I felt compelled to write in. It's been three episodes! Are they really supposed to have everything figured out already? Granted, some shows get it right from the start, but those shows are more the exception than the rule. Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't it a lot more common for a show to take some time to find its way? Also, I don't see how constantly comparing the show to others can lead to anything but disappointment. No, I suppose you can't put Anna Torv and Joshua Jackson in the same league as Gillian Anderson and David Duchovny, but I doubt anyone was calling even their chemistry legendary after only three episodes. Now, I'll admit that Olivia Dunham isn't the most sympathetic of characters, and if that doesn't change soon there's going to be a problem, but she just found out the guy she loved was not who she thought he was. It makes sense for her to be closed off. Likewise, if Joshua Jackson comes off a bit childish, maybe that's ... read more
