All My Children
After nearly 42 years of scandalous affairs, decades-long rivalries, fairy tale romances, kidnapped babies, serial killers, resurrected loved ones and the occasional Pennsylvania tornado, All My Children as fans have known it will come to an end on Friday. Two weeks before production wrapped, TVGuide.com spent a few days behind the scenes of Pine Valley as writers, producers and cast performed something of a three-ring circus, rallying to deliver what they hoped would be a satisfying conclusion for their loyal viewers.
During one morning meeting, longtime director Steven Williford planned out the moment in which Angie (Debbi Morgan) would get her sight back, enacting how she would stumble, joyful and teary-eyed, toward Jessie (Darnell Williams). Downstairs on set at the Pine Valley police station, Tad (Michael E. Knight) and Dixie (Cady McClain) -- together, at last — confronted David (Vincent Irizarry) perhaps for the final time, begging to know
Melody Thomas Scott
Our long national nightmare is over! Execs at The Young and the Restless have finally seen the light and are bringing Melody Thomas Scott back to the show. She will resume work in October and hit the air at Thanksgiving. The immensely popular actress — who plays lush-in-distress Nikki Newman — has been off the CBS serial since the end of April, with rumors flying that Sony, which owns the soap, was cutting corners and didn't want to renew her contract just yet. Not a smooth move, considering Thomas Scott was at the top of storyline — and giving the performance of her career — when Nikki suddenly left Genoa City and went into rehab. Curiously, those money issues at Y&R didn't stop the suits from hiring lots of new high-profile faces in recent months, including Emmy-winning suds greats Genie Francis and Debbi Morgan — a fact that did not go ignored by Thomas Scott's legion of irate fans who organized a massive Twitter campaign to bring their girl back. TV Guide Magazine spoke with Thomas Scott to get the scoop on her return and what really went down between her and the penny-pinchers...

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."
Emily Deschanel, Luke Kleintank
There will be a new face at the Jeffersonian Institute on Bones this season.
Bones Season 7 scoop: Booth and Brennan's family matters and a new villain, squintern
No Ordinary Family and Gossip Girl star Luke Kleintank has been cast in the potentially recurring role of young genius Finn Abernathy, TVGuide.com has learned. Described as brilliant, sweet and a bit rough around the edges, Finn earned his college degree at 16. However, his braininess is balanced with redneck charm. (Think Doogie Howser with Larry the Cable Guy's accent.)
As we first reported, Cam (Tamara Taylor) happily welcomes Finn and his smarts to the Jeffersonian, but Caroline (Patricia Belcher) is concerned about ...
There's not a more popular — or badder — badass in soaps than The Young and the Restless' Victor Newman. But even he's pushing it with the fans. The megalomaniacal patriarch — played by Emmy winner Eric Braeden — earned considerable viewer backlash last month when he threw his ex-wife, Diane (Maura West), from the back of an ambulance and left her bruised and bloodied on the road. (Sure, Di's a lying, conniving skank who was trying to destroy Victor's life, but still!) This week, Victor pays a ...

A rep for the top-rated CBS soap tells TV Guide Magazine that Avery is a high-powered attorney — is there any other kind? — who will represent the accused murderess Sharon Newman. Who hires Avery? The Mustache! (And we know how much he likes hot blondes!)...
