Watercooler: Are Sundays TV's Best Night?

Leslie Bibb

For a day of rest, Sundays sure are exhausting.

Not that we're complaining, but good Lord! Things were already crowded with regular network offerings like The Amazing Race, two hours of Celebrity Apprentice, the final run of Desperate Housewives and our new addiction, GCB (which ran delicious back-to-back episodes last night). Then the TV gods went and brought back read more

Game of Thrones Power Shift: Theon "Handles" His Family Poorly

Alfie Allen

On Sunday's Game of Thrones, poor Theon Greyjoy found himself not only humbled, but also humiliated in a really icky way.

The prodigal son returned to the Iron Islands but found that even though the Greyjoys' sigil is a kraken, he was not greeted with open arms, tentacled or otherwise. In fact, Theon's every misstep cost him some influence in the War of Five Kings. Who else faltered? Who prevailed? Who should just give up and join Ser Dontos as a jester? TVGuide.com breaks down the power shifts in "The Night Lands"... read more

Game of Thrones' Kit Harington on Jon Snow's Bloodthirst and the Weird Fixation With His Hair

Kit Harington

Jon Snow may have given up many things -- contact with his family, the love of a good woman, a tan -- but at least he has his long, wavy hair to keep him warm.

With one season of HBO's Game of Thrones under his Night's Watch belt, Kit Harington has settled into playing the heroic bastard who's taken strict vows to defend The Wall from various northern threats for Season 2. And although he's pondered what's going on inside his character's head, the British actor doesn't quite understand what the interest is with what's growing on his head.

Every week, editors Adam Bryant and Natalie Abrams satisfy your need for TV scoop. Please send all questions to mega_scoop@tvguide.com.

Have you heard anything about how Criminal Minds' plans to replace Paget Brewster in Season 8? — Ashley
ADAM:
I was actually on set last week and asked executive producer Erica Messer that very question. The short answer: Don't look for it to happen right away. Messer says she'd like to mimic what the show did in Season 3 when Joe Mantegna replaced departing star Mandy Patinkin a few episodes into the season. "I feel like we come back in Season 8 without Prentiss, and we're functioning just fine," she says. "But there's a void. We need that extra body. But I don't know who that character is yet." Why don't you guys help her out in the comments below?

Game of Thrones Power Shift: Joffrey Strikes, Melisandre Scores

Game Of Thrones, Jack Gleeson, Carice van Houten

"Power is power," the Queen Regent Cersei told a chastened Littlefinger in the long-awaited Game of Thrones Season 2 premiere.

It's a lesson that the Lannister lady has passed down to her son. In Sunday's episode, both Cersei and Joffrey flex their monarchy muscles among their courtiers, but now that Westeros is embroiled in a civil war among more than one self-styled king, it remains to be seen who actually wields the most influence. Who made a play for power? Who succeeded? Who failed? Who just embarrassed him/herself? TVGuide.com breaks down the power shifts in "The North Remembers":

Game of Thrones Season 2: The Men (and One Woman) Who Would Be King

Jack Gleeson, Emilia Clarke, Richard Madden

The Iron Throne may be made of swords, but that isn't a deterrent for the many people who want to sit upon it.

Following the death of King Robert Baratheon, Westeros has been thrown into turmoil. As the second season of Game of Thrones kicks off Sunday (9/8c, HBO), Robert's son Joffrey holds dominion in King's Landing, but not without rumblings from the surrounding Seven Kingdoms. Civil war has broken out, and while some men feel they have a better claim to the throne, others want supremacy over their own carved-out piece of turf.
