Mega Buzz on House, Heroes, 24, 90210 & More

Olivia Wilde (House), Ali Larter (Heroes), Kiefer Sutherland (24

Senior editors Matt Mitovich, Mickey O'Connor and Tim Molloy answer your questions. Drop us a line at mega_scoop@tvguide.com.

House is my favorite show, but I am getting sick of this season's Thirteen-centered storylines. When will we see more of Wilson, who has been woefully underused? —  Gillian
MATT: Personally, I'm (Olivia) Wilde for Thirteen, partly because her portrayer gives great quotes on the red carpet (and, ahem, is definitely not chilly). But I hear your woe, and can promise that Robert Sean Leonard has meaty stuff coming up later this season, only some of which has to do with Wilson's long-lost brother. Also, for what it's worth (and as hinted at this week), we'll also be spending a bit more time with Peter Jacobson's Taub. 

I hear that either Hayden Panettiere or Ali Larter wants to be released from her Heroes contract. Is this true? — Brian
TIM:
One of the key Heroes dies at the end of this volume, so that would be an easy out. But Larter ... read more

Mega Buzz on Grey's, Lost, Fringe, Smallville and More!

Mark Valley (Fringe), Evangeline Lilly (Lost) and T.R. Knight (Grey's Anatomy)

Senior editors Matt Mitovich, Mickey O'Connor and Tim Molloy answer your questions. Drop us a line at mega_scoop@tvguide.com.

Is there any indication that Grey's Anatomy creator Shonda Rhimes is going to adjust her stories because of all of the recent negative feedback? — Heidi
MATT: I doubt that Rhimes will alter any master plans, especially when it comes to the Izzie/Denny "romance" which, though polarizing, seems destined to serve some greater purpose. Now, speaking of "negative feedback," I've got at least one source telling me that T.R. Knight's apparent disenchantment with Grey's might not necessarily result in him exiting the series early. Wouldn't it be refreshing to see cooler heads prevail? 

The John Scott character on Fringe is such a joyful enigma; maybe one of you can convince the producers to bring him back from the dead? — Susan
MICKEY: [Peeking out from behind a giant Chinese fan] You know who else is a joyful enigma, Susan? Me! When I asked my friends o' Fringe about John Scott's possible reanimation ... read more

VIDEO: Gov. Blagojevich's Hair — Really!?!

Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich

Last week, everyone couldn't stop talking about Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich's arrest on charges of conspiracy and soliciting bribes. But Saturday Night Live's weekend update couldn't resist poking fun at the helmet of hair Blagojevich sports 24/7. During Seth Meyer's and Amy Poehler's final "Weekend Update" segment together, the two dove into their "Really!?!" bit with the governor as their target. At first, the two addressed the situation as a whole, but at the 1:10 mark, the SNLers launched into a solid forty-five seconds of sheer mockery about Blagojevich's hairstyle of choice.

Watch the video, and find out more about Blagojevich's reported obsession with his nicknamed hairbrush after the jump.

SNL Slammed for Blindsiding Blind Governor of New York

Saturday Night Live

Neither New York Gov. David A. Paterson nor a leading organization for the blind see the humor in a Saturday Night Live segment sending up the visually impaired politician.

"I can take a joke," Paterson tells the New York Daily News. "But only 37 percent of disabled people are working, and I'm afraid that that kind of third-grade humor adds to [misconceptions]."

As depicted by Fred Armisen on this weekend's show, Paterson needed help ... read more

Molly Sims Was Hot to Help Samberg with Racy SNL Vid

Molly Sims, Andy Samberg

The mellifluous Molly Sims may have her pick of men, but she jumped at the chance to help SNL's Andy Samberg "jizz" in his pants.

"They called me directly — no agents, no managers, nothing," the former Las Vegas beauty told E!. "It was like, 'Can you do this?' I said yes. And it was like, 'Be here tomorrow.'" Sims joined Samberg for the comedian's latest digital short, "Jizz in My Pants," as a seductress on the dance floor who gets him to — well, you know. 

Sims was ready to get up close and personal in part because...More, after the jump. read more
