Matt's Weekend Picks: April 29-May 1

Mary McCormack

The Cleveland Show (Sunday, 8:30/7:30c, Fox)
An ill wind is blowing through Fox's "Animation Domination" lineup — well, the Seth MacFarlane variety, anyway. In a crossover sweeps stunt, a hurricane storms its way through Stoolbend (Cleveland Show), Quahog (Family Guy) and Langley Falls (American Dad). On Cleveland, the storm wrecks the Brown/Tubbs family vacation plans. On Family Guy, the stress of the storm (never easy on dogs) drives Brian to overindulge in questionable substances. And on American Dad, the hurricane wreaks havoc on the Smiths, who foolishly decide to ride it out at home. As for Springfield... The Simpsons go to the Jersey Shore, so apparently they didn't get the memo.

Mega Buzz: A CSI: Miami Romance, Grey's Babies and Criminal Minds' Cliff-Hanger

Adam Rodriguez, Ellen Pompeo, Thomas Gibson

Every week, editors Adam Bryant and Natalie Abrams satisfy your need for TV scoop. Please send all questions to mega_scoop@tvguide.com.

What's the deal with Calleigh and Delko on CSI: Miami? Should we give up hope on ever seeing them together again? — Megan
ADAM:
Nope. Co-executive producer Barry O'Brien says their cooling-off period this season was necessitated by Emily Procter's real-life pregnancy.  "It was a little bit of a detour, a little bit of a left turn," he says. "But... we know those kind of feelings don't just go away ... They may be made for each other." Hope restored, Megan?

What's the deal with those Grey's Anatomy photos of Meredith and Derek holding a baby? — Regina
NATALIE:
Well, it's certainly not what it looks like, as Justin Chambers explains to us. "You know everyone's trying to be Chief Resident, so they have their own little bag of tricks," he says. "Alex has got one that involves orphans [from Africa]. It's kind of crazy and funny." But! It's just possible that Alex's stunt may... read more

Cheers & Jeers: The Killing's Killer Joel Kinnaman

Mireille Enos, Gharrett Paon and Joel Kinnaman

Cheers to Joel Kinnaman for his captivating performance on The Killing.

The Swedish actor helps give AMC's hypnotic adaptation of a Danish mystery series its chilly Scandinavian/Girl With the Dragon Tattoo vibe as Stephen Holder, the skeevy new partner of Seattle homicide cop Sarah Linden (the incandescent Mireille Enos). With a wiry frame and a live-wire intensity akin to Oscar nominee John Hawkes (Winter's Bone), Kinnaman routinely swipes scenes with his jittery charisma.

Ask Matt: Fringe, The Killing, Justified, NCIS and More!

Question: I don't understand why more people are not watching Fringe. I admit Season 1 was a bit rocky, but Season 2 was great, and so far this season has been the best, in my opinion. It's the only show that seems to fill The X-Files void for me. Last Friday's "LSD" episode was brilliant. I still crack up every time I picture the "How wonderful!" thought bubble above cartoon Walter. And how hilarious was tripping Broyles? He's the only character I've never liked on the show, because he's so rigid, but it was nice to see him loosen up a bit. Too bad it took a bad trip of LSD to do it. Anyway, I know it was renewed for a fourth season despite the poor ratings, but do you think that will be the end? I mean, how can they afford to keep such a low-rated show around?

Ask Matt: The Good Wife, The Killing, and More!

Julianna Margulies, Josh Charles

Send questions to askmatt@tvguidemagazine.com and follow me on Twitter!

Question: I have watched All My Children and One Life to Live for 40 years. I watch GMA and stay with ABC just waiting for them to come on to see what has happened. They are an escape from reality with spice, and ABC wants to give us more reality? There are mannnnny other stations for that. If ABC cancels my soaps, I will not watch them ever again any time of the day or night. AMC and OLTL are icons. Regis retires in November and Kelly understands. AMC and OLTL are a part of our lives and our friends. This is a wrong choice that ABC needs to reconsider or I'll be watching The Early Show, Matlock, In the Heat of the Night, Gunsmoke and Walker Texas Ranger, not reality. Oprah's leaving. Put the new shows there, or move the soaps around, just do not cancel them. 40 years of loyalty cuts deep and never heals. Why did they move AMC to LA and hire the veteran head writer just to cancel? Someone's thinking is screwed up. — Mary Alice

Matt's TV Week in Review

American Idol

It had been a pretty even-keel season of the reborn American Idol — perhaps too much so — until the Pia bubble burst Thursday night. Maybe a shocking elimination like Pia Toscano's way-too-early ouster is just the sort of wake-up call Idol needs to shock some showmanship into the part of the show that needs it the most: the judging. I've enjoyed the raucous goofiness of Steven Tyler and the glowy glamorous warmth that is Jennifer Lopez, but cheerleading has its limits, and when the closest thing to actual criticism from the panel is Randy (of all people) damning with faint praise by merely saying "Good job," it's clear the judges aren't doing a good job. Or much of a job at all.
