The Tuesday Playlist: Luther's Back, Along With Jon Stewart and Brian Williams

Idris Elba

Some like it rough — and TV doesn't get much rougher or darker than BBC America's brutally compelling crime drama Luther, mining new depths of depravity and tragedy in its third cycle (airing as a four-night miniseries this Tuesday through Friday at 10/9c, except Wednesday, when it airs an hour earlier as the lead-in to the even more shattering Broadchurch). Once again, Luther's Emmy-nominated and Golden Globe-winning star Idris Elba attacks his signature role of the tormented, damaged London detective John Luther with raw magnetism. He has a way of absorbing others' pain and isn't afraid to inflict some of his own, but Luther's history of explosively reckless behavior has made him the target of a relentless Internal Affairs cop (the excellent David O'Hara), who tries to turn Luther's loyal partner Ripley (Warren Brown) against him.

Exclusive: Eric Braeden Sounds Off About the Writer Shake-up at The Young and the Restless

Eric Braeden, Melody Thomas Scott

He didn't mean to throw the Twitterverse into a tizzy. Many fans of CBS's The Young and the Restless — at least the noisy ones on social media — were thrilled when news broke last week that controversial head writer Josh Griffith had exited the show. One fan on Twitter asked Y&R's alpha-dog star Eric Braeden (Victor) his opinion of Griffith's departure and Braeden tweeted back: "I'm very pissed off!!! Enough said!!!" That stunned a lot of folks who apparently assumed the Emmy-winning actor — currently on the back burner like a lot of other beloved Y&R vets — would be doing cartwheels at the prospect of a writer change. TV Guide Magazine sat down with Braeden to find out what he's really thinking — and get more out of him than 140 characters!

CBS Boss on Cote De Pablo's NCIS Exit: She Just Didn't Want to Do the Show

Michael Weatherly, Cote de Pablo

CBS CEO Leslie Moonves wants to make one thing clear: The network didn't let NCIS' Cote de Pablo leave the show without putting up a fight.

"We offered Cote de Pablo a lot of money, and then we offered her even more money," Moonves told reporters at the Television Critics Association fall TV previews Monday. "We really didn't want to lose her. We love her; we think she was terrific. ... Ultimately she decided she didn't want to do the show."

Cote de Pablo exiting NCIS

De Pablo announced her exit earlier this month, one week before the show was scheduled to begin production on its upcoming 11th season. She expressed her gratitude to the show and its cast and crew and said she would return for a few episodes to end her character's story. But how could CBS lose the leading lady of the No. 1 show on television?

"It was purely her decision," Moonves continued. "NCIS was the highest-rated show on television last year. We don't like losing anybody, but we did everything humanly possible. We feel like we exhausted every opportunity, and she just decided she didn't want to do the show."

Some other highlights from Moonves' executive session.... read more
