The American Bible Challenge
TV history, and cable's History channel, will tell you: Never bet against the Bible. While History's greatest-hits approach to The Bible (airing Sundays through Easter) continues to reap blockbuster ratings, GSN launches a second season of The American Bible Challenge (9/8c), its highest-rated game show, which could just as easily be called Are You Smarter Than a Divinity Student?

Scandal boss Shonda Rhimes was not kidding when she said Olivia Pope has bad taste in men.
ABC's resident political fixer now finds herself attracted to Captain Jake Ballard (Scott Foley), whom Olivia (Kerry Washington) randomly met at a coffee shop. What she doesn't know is that Jake was actually contracted by the President (Tony Goldwyn) to spy on Olivia by any means necessary. Those means include planting video cameras all over her apartment. But it's not creepy at all, insists Foley, who truly believes Jake has real feelings for Olivia. But will she return those feelings if she ever learns the truth? TVGuide.com caught up with Foley to get the scoop on what's in store for Thursday's episode (10/9c) and beyond:

Rule No. 1 when visiting the Hollywood set of Scandal: Be prepared for anything. Even the sight of hacked-off human body parts.

Question: Along with Parenthood, The Good Wife is in my opinion still one of the best dramas on network TV. And the mock trial episode was, as you recently noted, the best so far of the season. However, I have recently been feeling that this show has been lacking, not necessarily in quality (with the exception of the whole Kalinda's husband debacle), but in freshness. For me the show has been very stagnant. A case here, a little Will/Alicia flirtation there, mixed in with Peter's campaign and/or Eli's troubles. Every week is pretty much the same thing with a different guest star. Nothing seems to be new or fresh. What's most frustrating about the lack of freshness is how easily they could remedy that. I would be extremely interested in watching what Cary proposed unfold, for he and Alicia to form their own firm. Watching Cary and Alicia go head to head with Will and Diane would be a welcome change to the same old same old.

It's no secret that just about every Scandal fan hated Edison.
Olivia's polarizing former love interest certainly made fans angry. After his proposal was shot down as many times as Olivia (Kerry Washington) actually dumped him, Edison (Norm Lewis) just couldn't take the hint, sticking around in hopes Olivia would somehow magically take him back once again. Mostly, fans were angry that Edison was a road block between Olivia and her true love, Fitz (Tony Goldwyn). But that was the point!
Question: Zero Hour canceled. OK. I get it. The ratings were too low in that time slot. But then I don't get it. This was, what, a planned 10-episode season? Three down, seven to go. It was always planned to be a mid-season short-run program. Aren't all the episodes already filmed and ready for broadcast? So the ratings are so low that they are willing to call it a complete loss? And execs think that reruns will generate more revenue in that same slot against the same competition? If you are losing the time slot ratings already, how does airing reruns change that result? And why not move shows like this to Saturday? They have already given up on Saturday programming as it is. At least let seasons like this run their course. — Joe

Is Billy Chambers really dead?
Scandal fans have been asking that question since the Season 1 finale, when the vice president's chief of staff got on an elevator with assassin Charlie (George Newbern)... never to be seen or mentioned again.
