Late Night with Jimmy Fallon
Our top moments of the week:
12. Most Sympathetic Plea: Resident One Tree Hill villain Dan Scott returns to town after his diner and home burn down. Dan tears up when he begs Haley to help him get back on his feet, and we actually feel bad for him for the first time ever. It may have taken nine seasons, but it looks like Dan Scott is finally back in our good graces... for now.
11. Funniest Hunger Strike: In preparation for his wedding, Castle's Ryan goes on a nine-day cleanse with his...
Say it with us: Knope We Can!

I hear there's going to be a kiss in Castle's 1940s film noir episode. Is that true? — Erin
ADAM: After chatting with Stana Katic, my money is on a kiss... and much, much more. "What fans will see is probably the fulfillment of what most any fan would like to see happen with the Castle and Beckett relationship," Katic says of the episode, in which Castle daydreams about a detective who falls in love with a gangster's moll (played in Castle's fantasy by Beckett, of course). "Fans will be seeing the ultimate expression of love for those two characters." Ultimate expression of love? Is that what the kids are calling it these days?
How will Owen and Cristina be changed in Grey's Anatomy's alternate universe? — Vanessa
NATALIE: For one, they're not together. ...
Leslie Knope is one strong contender for City Council, but there's one man who could be brave enough to oppose her.
Paul Rudd is reportedly joining the race for Pawnee City Council on Parks and Recreation, according to Vulture. A source tells the site that Rudd shot his scenes sometime last year and will appear in at least one upcoming episode of the NBC comedy.
Don Cheadle realizes he's best known for dramatic roles in such films as Crash, Hotel Rwanda and Traffic. But he finds it odd that so many viewers aren't expecting to see him flex his comedic muscles from him in his new series House of Lies.
"I do it all the time around my friends," he tells TVGuide.com with a laugh. "It's not a...
Carl Reiner, Amy Poehler
How's this for your show of shows? TV Guide Magazine has learned exclusively that Parks and Recreation is set to host a living legend when comedy icon Carl Reiner guest stars as one of Pawnee's most powerful elders —and possibly a key player in Leslie's City Council campaign.
Friday Night Lights
From Oprah's surprisingly low-key farewell to the year's most soul-crushing break-up on The Good Wife (Kalicia, no!), the year was packed with fantastic hours of television — pretty much all of which we watched. There were teary goodbyes (Friday Night Lights' Texas forever! Smallville's tights and flights!), tense face-offs (why can't all CIA interrogations take place on the front porch of a cabin, like on Homeland?) and of course we made room for a little Glee (because certain underdogs deserved it). Which made the list. Tune in all week for our top 25.
Here's the fifth batch in our weeklong countdown of 2011's best episodes (Catch up first with Episodes 25-21, Episodes 20-16, Episodes 15-11 and Episodes 10-6. Or browse the full list here.):
5. "Finale," Smallville
It took 10 years for Clark Kent to become...
Parks and Recreation
'Tis the season for holiday miracles, so why can't we hope the same for television? Santa, please give Cougar Town a premiere date. Hanukkah Harry, all we ask is that Steve Carell get awards recognition for his Office role. Harvest gods of Kwanzaa, let Castle and Beckett finally get together. And please, Winter Solstice Fairy, stop all the incest on TV!

Question: I often appreciate the Golden Globes because they show greater range in the nominations than the Emmys, which tend to nominate the same people long after the bloom is off the rose. However, this year's nominees are just weird. Boss and American Horror Story instead of Breaking Bad, Justified or The Good Wife (or Friday Night Lights, if it was eligible)? Callie Thorne? Jeremy Irons? ...
Rob Lowe, Drew Peterson: Untouchable
Rob Lowe is sporting quite the 'stache in Drew Peterson: Untouchable, the Lifetime movie based on the titular suspected wife killer.
The Parks and Recreation star portrays the womanizing police officer Drew Peterson, who was arrested in connection to the killing of his third wife and disappearance of his fourth, who is played by...
