Jim Caviezel, Michael Emerson

Lots of people are still interested in CBS' Person of Interest.

Despite competing against the World Series and the usual Thursday-night fare, the CBS drama drew 14 million viewers and rose 7 percent in the adults-18-to-49 demographic to score a 3.0, according to early Nielsen numbers. That was good enough to beat out ABC's Grey's Anatomy, which was down 12 and 15 percent, respectively, to 8.5 million viewers and a 2.9 in the demo.

Since we didn't get a new episode of Castle this week, can I get some scoop instead? — Jackie
ADAM:
Been waiting to see what would happen when Martha Rodgers and Jim Beckett get in a room together? You'll get your chance during November sweeps! Unfortunately, the family affair happens on the same night Castle and Beckett are stranded without their phones while protecting a witness from the mob. "There's some tension because they've had the 'meet the folks' dinner and it hasn't gone particularly well," creator Andrew W. Marlowe tells us. So, what's the problem? "It's about who Martha is versus who Jim is," Marlowe says. "It's a bit of oil and water."

Got any scoop on Fringe? — Jane
