Mega Buzz: Prentiss' Replacement, a Grey's Return to Form and a Vampire Reunion

Paget Brewster, Criminal Minds, Sandra Oh, Grey’s Anatomy and Nina Dobrev, The Vampire Diaries

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

Have you heard anything about how Criminal Minds' plans to replace Paget Brewster in Season 8? — Ashley
ADAM:
I was actually on set last week and asked executive producer Erica Messer that very question. The short answer: Don't look for it to happen right away. Messer says she'd like to mimic what the show did in Season 3 when Joe Mantegna replaced departing star Mandy Patinkin a few episodes into the season. "I feel like we come back in Season 8 without Prentiss, and we're functioning just fine," she says. "But there's a void. We need that extra body. But I don't know who that character is yet." Why don't you guys help her out in the comments below?

Matt's TV Week in Review

Jessica Paré

There's music that sticks with you — like Megan's can't-get-it-out-of-your-head "Zou Bisou Bisou" birthday party bump and grind from Mad Men — and music you can't wait to forget: as in whatever the hell Katharine McPhee was screaming on that revolving mattress-prison during the ambush production number on Smash's worst episode to date.

Which seems an appropriate way to begin our medley of some of the week's notable hits and misses.

Watercooler: How Smart is The Vampire Diaries?

Special Report: How Book-to-TV Adaptations Handle Spoilers

Andrew Lincoln

Producers of serialized dramas hate spoilers and famously put cast and crew on lockdown to keep juicy plot points under wraps. But how do you avoid spoilers when your hit show — like Pretty Little Liars, Game of Thrones, The Walking Dead, The Vampire Diaries, Dexter, True Blood and The Secret Circle, all known for shocking twists — is based on a series of books? Your options: either mislead viewers, change up the story just a bit or take... read more

Mega Buzz: Private Parenthood, Mad Men Tension and a Glee Breakup?

Private Practice, Mad Men, Glee

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

Every week I ask for Private Practice news and will keep asking till I get some. Please, I'm desperate! Any CharCoop news? —Kriti
NATALIE:
Erica's inevitable demise will be the first parenting challenge for Charlotte and Cooper. "Their principal concern is Mason's psychological well-being in dealing with her [death]," Paul Adelstein says. "He said goodbye to her, but she's still alive and he knows she's still alive, so as much resolution as there was, that actually causes some problems. Then they're going to have a grieving child, and they're going to be grieving themselves, so it's a big challenge for them."

It's odd, but I missed Betty in the Mad Men premiere. When will be seeing her? — Ashley
ADAM:
Don't worry, Ashley, Betty is in Sunday's episode. And... read more
