Splash was also up 13 percent from Celebrity Wife Swap's premiere in the timeslot. Lead-outs Dancing with the Stars recap show (9.6 million, 2.1) was up from last spring's ...

NCIS: Los Angeles Boss Goes Personal for "Red" Spin-Off

NCIS: Los Angeles

As NCIS: Los Angeles executive producer Shane Brennan prepares to possibly launch the franchise's third show, some might wonder: Does the world need another NCIS?

First Look: NCIS: L.A. spinoff sees "Red"

"I'm sure it's a question a lot of people are asking and I can assure everyone it's not something that we approached lightly," Brennan tells TVGuide.com. "It's something that I certainly wouldn't have done if I didn't think we could make it different and turn a different light on the NCIS world."

The key difference is that the characters at the heart of the new series.... read more

The Tuesday Playlist: High Times on Justified, New Girl; Splash or Belly Flop?

Timothy Olyphant, Jim Beaver, Erica Tazel

How long has the Justified fan waited for someone to ask this question to Boyd Crowder: "Where did you get all of those teeth?" You'll likely be grinning yourself, while cringing at the edge of your seat, as the pleasures just keep multiplying — a high-octane Justified highball of great banter, tremendous suspense, clever twists and reversals — in a harrowing, hilarious and fantastically entertaining episode, so eventful you might mistake it for a season finale, but thankfully there are still two more episodes to go (Tuesday, 10/9c, FX) in this terrific fourth season.

It has all been building to this violent showdown between the forces of good (the U.S. marshals) and evil (everyone else, from Boyd's crew to an army of thugs and snipers representing the Detroit mob). The target is Drew Thompson (the great Jim Beaver), a 30-year fugitive in sheriff's clothing, currently in the marshals' custody, although they feel like sitting ducks, outnumbered and outgunned in Harlan as they calculate several desperate escape maneuvers while awaiting rescue. The episode, written by exec producer Graham Yost and Chris Provenzano, is titled "Decoy," and revolves around a series of standoffs, confrontations and subterfuges that leave few unscathed and unbloodied. Special props to Patton Oswalt as the loyal and lovably resilient Constable Bob, who even Raylan has to admit is a "tough son-of-a-bitch" by the time the dust settles, following a tense encounter outside a (metaphorically apt) high-school principal's office.

Tenna Torres

Fox topped Tuesday with a special American Idol, while Smash continued its precipitous slide.

Idol's two-hour episode averaged 11.5 million viewers and a 3.4 in the adults 18-to-49 demographic. NCIS did, however, edge it out by a tenth in the 8 o'clock hour (20.3 million, 3.3 vs. 10.9 million, 3.2).

Ratings: Golden Boy Premieres OK, Celebrity Wife Swap Hits Highs

Theo James

Golden Boy's premiere wasn't exactly golden, but the CBS drama easily topped its hour.

Debuting on Tuesday before moving to its regular Friday slot, Golden Boy drew 10.5 million viewers and a 1.8 in the adults 18-to-49 demographic. That's up three-tenths from Vegas' performance last week, but below the 14.9 million and 2.5 Vegas pulled for ...

Mega Buzz: A New Bones Beef, Scandal's Frame Job and a Good Wife Exit

I heard there may be trouble ahead for Booth and Brennan on Bones. Please tell me that's not true! — Hilary, via Twitter
ADAM:
The couple did seem to be having some serious communication issues before Brennan got shot in this week's episode. I think you can put safe money on those issues not being quickly resolved. In the meantime, Brennan will also have trouble with another man in her life: new squintern Oliver Wells (Brian Klugman), who has some issues with Brennan's authority. "[He] is completely un-intimidated by Brennan. He does respect her, but he doesn't revere her," executive producer Stephen Nathan tells us. "That's a new thing for these interns because [Brennan] holds their future in her hands. He has so many degrees and is so accomplished, he doesn't need her. It's very disorienting and disconcerting for her."

OMG! Why is David Rosen being framed for murder on Scandal?! — Kate
NATALIE:
We were just as shocked as you by the promo, so we got Josh Malina to fill us in... read more
