Sarah and Hank seemed to share a nice moment in the last episode of Parenthood. Could they be getting back together? — Samantha
ADAM: Not likely. Remember Sarah's obnoxious neighbor Carl? Despite that bad first impression, Sarah will be wooed by Carl when she attends an event honoring him for setting up medical clinics in Third World countries. (Too bad he didn't exactly invite Sarah as his date.) Making matters worse, Sarah meets a potential new photography client at the event, but she soon learns that her competition for the gig is... Hank.
Loving Jafar on Once Upon a Time in Wonderland. But what is he really after? —Amanda
NATALIE: "Jafar is not evil for evil's sake," executive producer Adam Horowitz tells us. "His actions come out of...
The periods are a giveaway. The more I watch ABC's lighter-than-helium super-spy romp Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., which was just picked up to no one's surprise for a full season, the more I feel thrust back to a different time, a simpler and brighter time when organizations like U.N.C.L.E. (as in, The Man From ...) held sway on TV, fighting its evil counterpart T.H.R.U.S.H. — or given the hokey jokiness of S.H.I.E.L.D., maybe a better parallel is Get Smart and KAOS (which I'm not sure used periods, though maybe should have). I'm not what you'd call a comics maven, so I can't help it that I giggled every time the word "Gravitonium" was uttered in last week's episode. Things get a tad more serious this week (Tuesday, 8/7c) when the team comes across a former S.H.I.E.L.D. agent who's apparently gone rogue — but as the episode's title ("Eye Spy") suggests, you can't always believe your (or someone else's) eyes.
NCIS: Los Angeles celebrates 100 episodes this week, and viewers will get some long-awaited answers about Callen's (Chris O'Donnell) past, according to showrunner Shane Brennan.
"I've been waiting 75 episodes to tell this story," Brennan tells TVGuide.com. "I came up with this way back in...

Looks like Ziva took some viewers with her.
NCIS' first Ziva-less episode Tuesday pulled in 17.9 million viewers and a 2.7 in the adults 18-to-49 demographic, dropping almost a full point from Cote de Pablo's farewell last week. A Voice recap show (10 million, 2.9) and Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. (7.7 million, 2.8), which fell three tenths, both edged it out.
NBC topped the ...
Goodbye, Tiva. Hello, NOLA! This spring, watch for a two-part sweeps episode of NCIS that will also function as a pilot for NCIS: New Orleans. If the CBS drama is given the go-ahead, it could be on the air as soon as next fall. Mark Harmon is set to be one of the new show's executive producers, which may surprise anyone who remembers that he wasn't crazy about the idea of NCIS: Los Angeles four years ago. What convinced him that a spinoff wouldn't dilute the mother show?
Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. took a big tumble in its second week.
The ABC series, which posted the biggest drama debut in four years, pulled in 8.4 million viewers and a 3.1 in the adults 18-to-49 demographic Tuesday, dropping 34 percent from last week. S.H.I.E.L.D. placed third in the timeslot

Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. debuted to marvelous numbers.
The highly anticipated drama premiered Tuesday to 11.9 million viewers and a 4.6 in the adults 18-to-49 demographic, making it the best drama debut since V's bow in 2009 and the highest-rated new show so far. S.H.I.E.L.D. dominated ...
NCIS: Los Angeles closed out Season 4 with the cruelest of cliff-hangers, leaving fans to wonder all summer whether Michelle (Aunjanue Ellis), who was last seen dangling out of a window, would survive; and whether Deeks (Eric Christian Olsen) would crack under the pressure of being gruesomely tortured. Oh, and then there are the tiny matters of Deeks and Kensi (Daniela Ruah) locking lips before everything went to hell, and of Callen (Chris O'Donnell) being betrayed by The Chameleon (Christopher Lambert), which set off the aforementioned chain of events.
"The [Season 4] finale and the premiere episode for Season 5, the impact of that particular story will have the greatest consequence of any story we've told," executive producer Shane Brennan tells TVGuide.com. "For a number of characters involved in that, there's nowhere to hide. If you think about the trauma that nearly all of them went through in the process of the finale, these things are not easily swept under the rug. We're not going to pay lip service to them and then move on. ... Particularly Kensi and Deeks, their relationship has been altered by the kiss, and then it's been altered by the trauma that Deeks is going through when we left him."
NCIS: New Orleans?
Viewers may be able to find that show on their DVRs as early as next fall if things go according to plan.
Deadline reports that NCIS showrunner Gary Glasberg and series star/executive producer Mark Harmon are working on...
