Question: Love your column and hope you could shed some light on an issue for me. As I understand it, TV shows/actors submit one episode of what they feel is their best work (that season) for Emmy consideration. Is this true? If so, don't you think the criteria should require a greater sample size since one episode, no matter the quality, does not necessarily tell the story of an entire season? —Charles

The Weekend Playlist: Comings (Grimm, Army Wives) and Goings (Ripper Street))

Lili Simmons, Antony Starr

Let's start, as all weekends must, with Friday. The latest news: CBS has changed its mind about moving the new Golden Boy to Fridays after its two-week Tuesday tryout. To confuse matters, a new episode of Golden Boy airs this Friday (9/8c), with rising-star Detective Clark once again facing threats from his nemesis Arroyo. But next week, the Boy is back on Tuesdays (10/9c), displacing Vegas, which remains on ice for the rest of the month. When it returns, Vegas will move to Fridays (9/8c), starting April 5. Place your cancellation bets now.

Ask Matt: Fringe Finale, Nashville, the Downton Abbey Effect, and More

Joshua Jackson

Question: What can I say except: "Awesome!" Fringe could not have ended any other way. I was fully prepared to be sad and upset, but the ending left me feeling fulfilled and satisfied. I applaud anyone who had anything to do with this amazing show. Walter, Olivia, Peter and the gang have become family to me and I am happy knowing that they have a future. So thank you universe, whichever one you choose, for this wonderful show. And thank you, Matt, for always championing Fringe and giving it space and time in your column. — Rachel

The Monday Playlist: Killers Afoot on The Following and Bones

Jeannane Goossen, Kevin Bacon

Saturday night, BBC America introduced Ripper Street, a 19th-century procedural haunted by the grisly barbarism of Jack the Ripper. Now comes Fox's much scarier, infinitely more graphic The Following (Monday, 9/8c), a gruesomely chilling no-holds-barred thriller that owes a morbid debt to the macabre imaginings of Edgar Allan Poe.

Forget Jack the Ripper! Ripper Street Tackles Other Victorian Murders

Jerome Flynn, Matthew Macfadyen and Adam Rothenberg

Despite the show's name, don't expect to see Jack the Ripper cases play a big part on Ripper Street.

That's because the new BBC America crime drama, which kicks off Saturday at 9/8c, takes place in 1889, a good six months after the last murder was attributed to the notorious serial killer. "The whole idea for us setting out on this journey was to really try and actually discard Jack the Ripper, at least in terms of wondering after who he was and trying to catch him..."
