Got any scoop on Desperate Housewives? — Sara
NATALIE: Poor Paul Young. Both of his wives have killed themselves — not a very good track record! — and now somebody's trying to kill him. Again. This time, the culprit is a bit more sly. I'm hearing he or she will slip some anti-freeze into Paul's dinner. If you've already put together that this will coincide with the return of Felicia Tilman, bravo.
I love that Brendan Hines is going to stir up jealousy on Castle. What else can you tell me? — Monica
ADAM: While Castle is plenty peeved by the easy rapport his protégé establishes with Beckett, his remedy is to kill the young pup with...
Chris O'Donnell and LL Cool J
It's ice-cream-sundae Thursday on the set of NCIS: Los Angeles, and almost everyone is indulging between takes. Even LL Cool J, who moonlights as a fitness guru. "Hey, you've earned it," a crew member tells the überbuff rapper/action hero, as if he needs anyone's consent for a sugar rush. The collegial atmosphere continues as Chris O'Donnell passes Daniela Ruah and Eric Christian Olsen, who wrapped their roles a half hour ago yet have stuck around to yak over their Ben & Jerry's. "Don't you two have homes?" O'Donnell demands to know, breezing on by before Ruah has a chance to kickbox his behind.
Apparently the lone holdout, O'Donnell hasn't taken any...

The tough tandem of NCIS and NCIS: Los Angeles still took their time slots, though with substantially lower numbers because of repeats, while the return of Glee was greeted by a bigger audience than its last original airings.
Victor Webster and Daniela Ruah, NCIS: Los Angeles

Webster plays Stanley King, a world-class thief suspected of several high-end heists. He lands on NCIS' radar after a secure facility housing sensitive materials on a Marine base is compromised. In order to get close enough to keep an eye on King, Kensi (Daniela Ruah) must work alongside him as a savvy thief...

Ratings behemoths NCIS and American Idol went head to head — and Idol won. And the self-proclaimed biggest "winner" of all, Charlie Sheen, helped ABC win a lot more viewers than usual.
Charlie Sheen on 20/20: I have a billion fans ... I expose people to magic
The CBS procedural attracted 19.2 million viewers (the low end of its range), while a 90-minute edition of the Fox network's singing competition — in which the top 12 male semifinalists performed — lured nearly 21.3 million. Idol's rating among 18-to-49-year-olds declined ...

Traffic Light signaled an increase this week to 4.1 million viewers — up from last week's 3.6 million, but still well below the premiere's 4.6 million two weeks ago. Fox's relationship comedy also leapt 21 percent to a 1.7 rating in the advertiser-coveted 18-to-49 demographic.
People continued to turn away from Traffic Light. After scathing reviews, Fox's relationship comedy premiered to 4.6 million viewers last week. This week, that number dropped to 3.6 million — while also plummeting 21 percent in the advertiser-coveted 18-to-49 demographic. Have those green/yellow/red jokes on stand-by.
OK, NCIS can't set a series high every week. Still, the CBS procedural nabbed 20.3 million viewers Tuesday night.
