Our top moments of the week:
14. Biggest Hair-Raising Moment: Just when we had gotten kinda, sorta comfortable with the American Horror Story players — Dr. Charles makes Franken-babies, Constance is the worst mother ever, Rubber Man impregnates attractive homeowners — a mystery pair of hands make an ...
Emily Deschanel, David Boreanaz
"Sort of like an eclipse — it doesn't happen that often." That's Angela's wry take on the remarkable sight of "Bones" Brennan (Emily Deschanel) crying copiously at a grisly crime scene, as Fox's Bones (9/8c) finally begins its seventh season, re-establishing ...

So excited for Bones to come back! What can you tell me about this season's new villain? — Brittany
ADAM: Creator Hart Hanson tells us that if The Gravedigger was the "evil" version of Brennan and Jacob Broadsky was the "evil" version of Booth, then Christopher Pellant, the show's tech-savvy new killer, is the "evil" version of... Booth and Brennan's baby!? "It's too creepy to say that it's like, 'What if Booth and Brennan's baby grew up to be a horrible serial killer?'" Hanson says with a laugh. "But thematically, they have to deal with two things this year that are a combination of the two of them. One's the baby, and the other is this big baddie."
I really don't want Daniel to die on Revenge. At least tell me who his killer is. — Melissa
NATALIE: Let's put together some facts: Executive producer Mike Kelley has previously said that the second half of the season will show the trial of Daniel's murderer, so yeah, it looks like he's going die. Now, the show is currently looking for an actor to play a high-powered attorney who will defend...

And the Halloween countdown continues ...
With a bona fide classic leading the way, as the patient and faithful Linus once again declares It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown (ABC, 8/7c), as he's been doing ever since the Charles Schulz animated special premiered in 1966 (and yes, I was the target audience back then). As Lucy runs afoul ...
Poppy Montgomery and Dylan Walsh
Poppy Montgomery and Dylan Walsh are good sports. By the time the leads of CBS' new hit procedural Unforgettable arrive to scope out a late-afternoon Mets batting practice at Citi Field, they've already been filming since 9am — and when the MLB team takes the field later that evening for a home game, they'll be long gone, back to work at the show's nearby Queens studio. Luckily, those demanding days are paying off: The drama about a woman who uses her superhuman memory to help her cop ex-boyfriend solve crimes premiered last month to 14 million viewers, and the TV vets playing Carrie Wells and Al Burns are determined to keep knocking it out of the park — while cracking each other up in the process.

Ever feel like your favorite TV shows are sharing the same brain? Thanks to contract negotiations, pilot trends and similar cliff-hangers, we've seen several shows treading similar story line territory already this fall. CSI, Law & Order: SVU, The Office and Two and Half Men all replaced lead characters while NCIS and Castle both saw characters on a shrink's couch. But which shows did it better? Below, we pit them against one another and pick a winner...

Leslie Knope has literally written the book on Pawnee, Indiana. (Actually, the writers of Parks and Recreation have, and the very amusing mock guidebook — Pawnee: The Greatest Town in America — is available now.) In tonight's Parks episode (NBC, 8:30/7:30c), Leslie's promotional tour for said book lands her on public radio — a satirical spin courtesy of guest Dan Castellaneta (moonlighting from his suddenly contentious Simpsons gig) — and then on Pawnee Today, where the town's chirpiest cheerleader experiences a bit of an identity crisis, courtesy of "Gotcha!" host Joan Calamezzo (the hilarious Mo Gaffney). The episode is just fine, but from what I've skimmed — who has time to read this time of ...
