Carlos Bernard, David Caruso
CSI: Miami's Horatio Caine (David Caruso) is no stranger to formidable foes, but this season his opponent will be quite a doozy. 24 alum Carlos Bernard has been cast as Horatio's spectacularly wealthy season-long nemesis, TVGuide.com has learned exclusively.

"We're going to slowly position Horatio in opposition to a very subtle, but powerful, political patriarch," co-executive producer Barry O'Brien tells us. "He's kind of a Donald Trump meets the Kennedy family. ...There will be a very high-octane relationship between the two. A hero is as heroic as his opposition is deadly, so we're really going to go there with this character."

Question: I am a long-time follower of your columns and reviews, and I just want to thank you for all the great series you have steered me toward over the years. The latest is Breaking Bad, which I never would have gone near if not for your raves. What an amazing show. Now I'm wondering if you have been watching The Glades and what you think of its development. Being from South Florida, I am always curious about shows located there. Most shows don't get the feel of the place (we won't even speak of that CSI show), but this one seems to be doing it right so far. And talk about someone coming out of left field: Where did this amazing guy Matt Passmore come from? Because I know he is Australian, I'll forgive his lack of a Chicago accent, but he has developed such an interesting and believable character (thank you also, writers) and is such a charismatic lead. After Lost, I never thought I could appreciate Kiele Sanchez in anything, but I am enjoying her performance as well. Thanks again for all the enjoyable hours of TV and please keep writing your columns! — Susan
Matt Roush: Well, thanks for that encouraging feedback. With The Glades, I'll fess up that I haven't seen every episode...

In cable TV, summer is the new fall. For the broadcast networks, it's "Let's throw it against the wall and see if it sticks" time. So what's working as we wait for the curtain to rise on the fall schedules?
Canada American networks can get Canadian-made series for as little as 25 percent of what they pay for Hollywood shows. Of course, it only makes economic sense if you can get somebody to watch them (which wasn't the case with CBS' quickly axed The Bridge). Now that ABC's Rookie Blue is averaging 7 million viewers, you can bet there will be a lot more imports next summer.
ABC's Rookie Blue has been renewed, the network announced Monday.
The cop drama, which debuted three weeks ago, has fared decently in its time slot (Thursdays at 9/8c), second to So You Think You Can Dance on Fox. The show has been averaging...
Hell's Kitchen, Rookie Blue
Are you tired of reruns and reality shows?
Summers have traditionally only offered new episodes of such reality juggernauts as NBC's America's Got Talent," Fox's So You Think You Can Dance and Hell's Kitchen, ABC's The Bachelorette, and CBS' Big Brother. But this summer ...

Jeers to Scoundrels for not living up to its title.
ABC's summer crime dramedy (at least I think it's trying to be funny) suffered a huge loss when Neal McDonough was reportedly sacked after three days of production because the devout Catholic refused to shoot sex scenes with costar Virginia Madsen. McDonough brings a riveting malevolence to every role he plays, from sleazy DA David McNorris on Boomtown to psycho killer Dave Williams on Desperate Housewives. He surely would've lived up to the name of Palm Springs crime family patriarch Wolfgang "Wolf" West.
Here's the real crime: McDonough was replaced by David James Elliott, a likably generic TV hunk best known for his role as straight-arrow military man Harmon "Harm" Rabb on JAG. But on Scoundrels, Elliott seems...
The con is on when the stylized caper series returns for its Season 3 opener with two episodes, airing back-to-back. The jailhouse rocks in the first episode when Nate Ford and his Ford-tough band of outlaws take on a corrupt prison warden to save the life of an innocent inmate. Along the way, they plan the great escape. Edwin Hodge, brother of series star Aldis Hodge, guest-stars. In the second outing, the dream team schemes to crack an important password by targeting a dishonest software big shot at a high-school reunion.
