Mega Buzz: A Castle Affair, Big Bang's New Love and Homeland Intel

Loved the Castle premiere, but what was Castle doing with a half-naked woman in the promos for the next episode? —
ADAM:
As creator Andrew W. Marlowe  already teased, that encounter is a consequence of Castle pretending to be single in order to keep his relationship with Beckett a secret from their co-workers. But that doesn't mean infidelity won't be an issue. An upcoming case will implicate Castle in the murder of an ex. "It makes everybody question: How well do we actually know this guy?" Marlowe says. But it gets worse: "Castle may have been having an affair with her at the same time he was dating Beckett," he teases. "That goes to the heart of all of Beckett's insecurities."

Is Leonard actually going to date someone other than Penny on The Big Bang Theory? — Thomas

Tuesday TV Review: Fox Comedies (Ben and Kate, Mindy), CBS Bets On Vegas

Nat Faxon and Dakota Johnson

In TV comedy, there's a fine line between the delightfully quirky and the annoyingly irksome, and Fox's Tuesday night lineup — now home to four half-hour sitcoms, forcing Glee's move to Thursdays — tap-dances around and over that line with reckless abandon. My advice: surrender and enjoy.

The Mindy Project Delivers a Different Kind of Heroine

Mindy Kaling

A year ago, most people had no idea who Mindy Kaling was. Now, the actress' face is everywhere — magazine covers, billboards, bus stops — but most importantly, she's starring in a new sitcom The Mindy Project, which premieres Tuesday at 9:30/8:30c on Fox. And though the series airs after New Girl, don't be fooled into thinking Kaling's TV alter ego Mindy Lahiri is anything like the "adorkable" Jess (Zooey Deschanel). Mindy is no sexually innocent, manic pixie dream girl. Instead, she's a grown woman who isn't afraid to go after whatever she wants professionally, romantically or sexually. In short, she's my hero. read more

New Girl Creator Liz Meriwether: Jess Goes "Off the Grid" in Season 2

Zooey Deschanel

Jess may not be so adorkable this season.

When New Girl returns on Tuesday at 8/7c and 9/8c on Fox, Jess (Emmy-nominated Zooey Deschanel) will be unceremoniously let go from her teaching position, sending her once quirky life into disarray. Jess' firing will provide new comedic avenues for her — she'll work as a shot girl at Schmidt's penis-cast removal party in the premiere (Words we never thought we'd write together in a sentence) — and it will also allow her to test some romantic waters she might not have dipped her toe in before — like only sleeping with someone instead of being in a relationship. To her credit, the fling-worthy David Walton is pretty hard to resist — a sentiment creator Liz Meriwether agrees with.

In our candid interview below, Meriwether discusses Jess' new journey this season, along with the ultimate casting coup — Jamie Lee Curtis and Rob Reiner! — and what's in store for everyone's favorite roommate trio Schmidt (the also Emmy-nominated Max Greenfield), Winston (Lamorne Morris) and Nick (Jake Johnson).

Can't wait for The Office to return! Please give me some scoop on the final season. —Joan
NATALIE:
An original cast member whose name is not Mindy Kaling might be leaving Dunder Mifflin. But the real question is whether that has anything to do with the death that occurs within the first few minutes of the premiere. (Hey, where's Andy?)

Where do things stand between Alicia and Peter when The Good Wife returns? — Katherine
ADAM:
Not where you might expect. While Alicia... read more

When his injury is healed, Schmidt is determined to revamp his image by throwing a "rebranding event." read more
