Mega Buzz: Kurt's New Directions Return, Grey's Calzona Drama & Blue Bloods' Abduction

Glee, Grey's Anatomy, Blue Bloods

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

So, will Kurt be back with New Directions on Glee any time soon? — Lizzie
ADAM
: Sorry to break it to you, Lizzie, but Kurt will still be singing with the Warblers at least through Regionals. That means he won't be singing Glee's original song, the geek anthem "Loser Like Me," either. But don't worry, Kurt and the Warblers have their own underdog ode. Hint: It's by Pink!

I can't believe we won't get a new episode of Grey's Anatomy until March 24. Can you give us some scoop to tide us over? —Rachel
NATALIE:
In the next new episode, Arizona is going to see a new side of Callie. "Callie has this obsession with baby showers, and she has this massive need for attention and girliness," Jessica Capshaw tells us. "Arizona keeps guessing wrong on what Callie would want and Mark keeps guessing correctly. Arizona just gets sick of it, so Callie gives... read more

The Mentalist Goes Mental

Simon Baker, Aunjanue Ellis

Who set fire to serial cop-killer Todd Johnson, executing him in his jail cell? That mystery has been haunting the characters on The Mentalist since November, and tonight one of the CBI's very own is fingered as the perp!

First, Agent J.J. LaRoche (Pruitt Taylor Vince), who's been investigating the case as head of CBI's internal affairs, will reveal that one of Johnson's victims had been sleeping with... read more

Mega Buzz: Hawaii Five-0 Mysteries Solved, a Chuck Exit and Beckett's Tough Choice

Alex O'Loughlin, Zachary Levi, Stana Katic

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

I love Hawaii Five-0, but how long is McGarrett's investigation into his father's case going to last? — Melinda
ADAM:
Not as long as you might think: Co-executive producer Paul Zbyszewski promises that many of the "champ box" mysteries will be solved by season's end, including who or what exactly John McGarrett was investigating and who replaced the stolen money from the evidence locker. "I think fans will be really surprised at how deep we go and how much we learn by the end of the season," Zbyszewski says. "That's not to say that we're not going to continue to explore the McGarrett mythology anymore, because there plenty more to milk in Season 2."

Any new missions coming up on Chuck? Frankie
NATALIE: Much to the chagrin of Chuck and Sarah, Casey is going to be enticed away from Team Intersect by Bentley (Robin Givens), General Beckman's frenemy. "She presents him with things he knows are true: This has been your longest assignment; your team... read more

Matt's Picks: February 14-17

Justin Beiber

Jeopardy! (Syndicated, check local tvguide.com listings, Monday-Wednesday)
We'll take "The Future Is Now" for $1 million, Alex. In a stunt that pits man against machine, TV's smartest quiz show challenges two of its most celebrated champs — Ken Jennings of the longest winning streak (74 games) and biggest money earner Brad Rutter ($3.2 million) — to go up against the IBM supercomputer known as "Watson" (and the subject of a recent PBS Nova documentary). read more

Mega Buzz: Scoop on Bones' Proposal, a Sookie-Alcide Hookup and Red John's Return

David Boreanaz, Anna Paquin, Simon Baker

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

I'm so worked up about this Bones proposal. Please tell me who Booth is going to ask to marry him! — Lisa
ADAM:
Where's the fun in that? Executive producer Stephen Nathan summed up the episode in three words: Big. Game. Changer. "We've existed this whole year with Booth and Brennan accepting, admitting and also denying their feelings for each another and with Booth in a very serious relationship with another woman — much to the dismay of a lot of fans," Nathan says with a laugh. "I think the episode will be a satisfying conclusion to this story line and also a great start for the next development that happens in the show emotionally. It will be very difficult and very painful, and David [Boreanaz] really brings that home."

Any chance that Sookie and Alcide will get together this season on True Blood? — Danielle
NATALIE:
"Timing is everything and the timing between those two could not have been worse, so we'll see where the time goes in Season 4," Joe Manganiello says. But factor this in: We're hearing that Alcide's loyalties might be... read more

Mega Buzz: A Grey's Hookup, a Dark Housewives Secret and a Vampire Romance

Ellen Pompeo, Eva Longoria, Nina Dobrev

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

Any scoop on Grey's Anatomy? — Jamie
NATALIE: In an upcoming episode, Meredith has to leave the OR when she suddenly goes blind! Wow, that was depressing. I should have led with the shower sex, huh? OK, Soap Dropper No. 1 isn't single now, but he or she will rival Callie and Arizona's sudsy frolics from earlier this season. Any guesses as to the not-so-squeaky-clean pair?

What's coming up on Desperate Housewives? — Amy
ADAM:
Two Wisteria Lane ladies will deal with trauma in different ways: Susan will use her dialysis as an excuse to get out every problem she has, right up until a neighbor offers to donate a kidney in a most unusual way. Meanwhile, Gaby will... read more

Mega Buzz: Grey's Tries Real-Time, a New Chick for Chuck and the Return of Fizbo!

Ellen Pompeo (Grey's Anatomy), Zachary Levi (Chuck), Eric Stonestreet ((Modern Family)

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

Any Grey's Anatomy scoop on Meredith? AJ
NATALIE: The Feb. 10 episode, which is titled "Golden Hour," will follow Meredith for a real-time 60 minutes as she runs the E.R. "Golden hour" is medical jargon for the crucial first hour after a trauma, and how it can often be the difference between life and death, so don't expect "Golden" to be rosy.

I could really use some Chuck scoop right about now. — Marcus
ADAM:
Might Chuck soon be meeting his next big foe? I'm hearing that the show is casting a major recurring guest star... read more

Cheers & Jeers: The Mentalist's Psychic Friends Network

Richard Roundtree, Pruitt Taylor Vince

Cheers to a couple of old pros for bringing character to The Mentalist.

Richard Roundtree
and Pruitt Taylor Vince provided the dramatic muscle in an otherwise lightweight episode about a DOA at an MMA fight. The man once known as "the black private dick who's a sex machine to all the chicks" — Shaft! — proved he still knows his way around the ring as a sly trainer. If only Roundtree could recur, like he did in recent years on Heroes and Desperate Housewives. Maybe Simon Baker's Thomas Jane could distract himself from obsessing over Red John with a few boxing lessons?... read more

Ray Romano: I’ll Be Surprised If Network Comedies Work at 10 O'Clock

Ray Romano

NBC and ABC have yet to launch their new 10 p.m. comedy blocks, but they already have a critic from the comedy world: Ray Romano.

During Thursday's Television Critics Association panel for his TNT drama Men of a Certain Age, Romano expressed doubt about whether half-hour comedies can work so late in the evening.
