Castle, Brendan Hines
What happens when a mystery writer has his muse stolen by his protégé? If the writer is the title character of ABC's Castle, the answer is simple: It gets combative.

TVGuide.com has learned exclusively that Lie to Me star Brendan Hines has been tapped to play Alex Conrad, a first-time mystery writer who owes some of his debut novel's success to a glowing review written by Castle (Nathan Fillion). When Castle invites Alex down to the precinct to play mentor, however, Alex becomes much more interested in what Beckett (Stana Katic) has to say about being a police detective...
America's Next Top Model
Wednesday's ratings roundup:
An audience of 22.5 million total viewers tuned in for American Idol, marking a 9 percent increase over last week's results show. (But really, Tatiana? Oh, the pain had best end tonight.) Knight Rider's series finale managed a distant second with 5.76 million viewers, representing a 21-percent drop-off from the show's debut.
Trailing repeats of CBS sitcoms and Lost, the season premiere of America's Next Top Model averaged 3.89 million viewers over its two-hour run, up 11 percent from its previous opener. Plus, to paraphrase Dr. Johnny Fever, you should see what it's doing with teenage girls!
Opposite a Criminal Minds repeat, Lost won the hour and the demos with 10.61 million viewers, a gain of 800K from last week's Idol-ized outing. In third, Fox's Lie to Me (10.2 mil) was down 9 percent.
Even with CSI: NY and Law & Order serving leftovers, the freshly canceled Life on Mars (5.67 mil) managed just a 100K gain.
Heroes, Knight Rider
Some of this TV season's "bubble shows" are starting to pop, while others continue to ride the fence — or even safely hop off.
Case in point: Despite sagging ratings and amid backstage upheavals, Heroes will fight another day. The Peacock's onetime pride and joy is likely to return in the fall for 18 to 20 episodes, NBC entertainment president Angela Bromstad told the Hollywood Reporter, though an actual pick-up order has yet to be placed.
One thing playing in Heroes' favor is ...

Sarah Shahi and Damian Lewis, Life
In this tough, low-rated TV season, NBC is the first network to reshuffle its lineup. What's the Peacock's solution? Crime night!
According to the Hollywood Reporter, starting Wednesday Nov. 5, NBC will present a block of crime dramas: Knight Rider at 8 pm/ET, Life at 9 pm (moving in from Fridays at 10), and the return of longtime staple Law & Order at 10 pm.
Details on the other programming tweaks after the jump.
Justin Bruening, Knight Rider
A couple weeks ago, NBC ordered more scripts for Knight Rider. Now, the Peacock has ordered the back nine episodes, making Rider the third freshman show to receive a full-season pickup this year behind Fringe and 90210.
The order also marks NBC's first ...
Justin Bruening, Lena Headey
On the heels of CBS' The Mentalist, which thus far is the TV season's biggest freshman hit, getting an order for a half-dozen additional scripts, two other new-ish series have received perhaps-significant votes of confidence.
Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles, technically a second-year show but one still anxiously awaiting a back-nine order, has been given the go-ahead for two more scripts — this in the wake of increasing ratings in its fifth week.
Knight Rider, meanwhile, has been given the green light for four more scripts. Of note, the NBC reboot has been trumping critical darling Pushing Daisies, one of its Wednesdays-at-8 rivals, in the Nielsens.
To date, the freshman series Fringe and 90210 have received full-season pick-ups.
