Mega Buzz: Scoop on Heroes, The Office, CSI, and More!

Greg Grunberg, Jenna Fischer, George Eads

Every week, editors Mickey O'Connor and Adam Bryant satisfy your need for TV scoop. Please send all questions to mega­_scoop@tvguide.com.

Have any scoop on Heroes? — Tyler
Matt Parkman will try his best to just be a detective/family man, but he's got a little devil sitting on his shoulder trying to convince him to be more, thanks to his part in the Sylar-Nathan mind meld. "The evil part of Sylar got stuck in my subconscious, and he is slowly gaining control over me," Greg Grunberg tells me. "I have a feeling that he's going to make Matt do things that he would never, ever do in a million years." You mean like putting the show's fate in the hands of a bunch of carnies?

Are Jim and Pam actually going to get married on The Office? — Jill O.
I'm hearing they'll tie the knot in episode 4. Why the rush? Because Pam ... read more

I am so over Orson and his lame blackmail scheme. How long before the writers put that story to rest and let Bree and Karl tie the knot on Desperate Housewives? — David
MICKEY: Poor Kyle MacLachlan — the writers really screwed him with all that kleptomania nonsense. The good news (for us, at least) is that Bree's emotional affair with Karl will take on a new dimension when they start sending dirty text messages to each other. As Emily Post might write longhand on personalized stationery: OMG!

Any Fringe scoop? — Lizbeth
MICKEY: Right off the bat in the first episode, one character's alliances will be questioned, and the answer will be heartbreaking... read more

Leverage's Aldis Hodge Previews Jeri Ryan's Guest Appearance

Hey everybody.  I hope you all enjoyed this week's episode.  That was actually the second episode we shot, and I remember thinking most of the time, "Am I back to being the same old Hardison?" It's tough trying to get back the old rhythm sometimes, because we move at such a fast pace that we don't really get to see playback until ... well, until the episode airs. We get it when y'all do, but we have such a great time rocking them out that we just kind of go with the flow. 

We're more than ... read more
