I'm worried that Castle has nowhere to take Beckett now that her mom's murder has been solved. Make me feel better? — Valerie
ADAM: Stana Katic doesn't think you should be worried. "There's a certain amount of closure, but it doesn't mean that the tale is done," she says. In fact, Katic is finding it much more fun to play the "new" Beckett. "She's more lethal because she's thinking more clearly. She's not running on emotion anymore," she says. "She's become more dangerous to the bad guys." Sounds like Castle better stay in line!
Will Emily get Revenge on Ashley for dating Daniel? — Mary
NATALIE: She certainly has a few tricks up her sleeve. "You're going to find that Ashley is not a random friend for Emily," creator Mike Kelley tells us. "There's...
CBS ruled Tuesday from start to finish, as all three of its dramas once again topped their respective hours.
NCIS was the most-watched and top-rated show of the night with 18.5 million viewers and a 3.6 in the adults 18-to-49 demographic, falling slightly from last week. NCIS: Los Angeles (14.8 million, 3.1) and Vegas (12 million, 2.1) fell about 10 and 16 percent, respectively.
Fox's Raising Hope returned to 3.9 million ...
What if a new TV season launched and nobody came? Post-Olympics sneak peeks, video on demand and online previews have taken some of the excitement out of the traditional network premiere week, as none of the new shows has had breakout ratings (many CW series start this week). Also to blame: the fact that 45 percent of all TV households now have a DVR and that more viewers catch a show on their computer or iPad if they miss it on TV. "The immediacy and the excitement of seeing a show has gone away," confirms one network executive. But the season must go on. Here's what the numbers tell us.
NCIS is still TV's most-watched show — and it's now the top-rated too.
The CBS drama's Season 10 premiere dominated Tuesday with 20.1 million viewers and a 4.1 rating in the adults 18-to-49 demographic. That's slightly higher than the Season 9 premiere's audience and two-tenths lower than last season's premiere rating.
CBS won every hour of the evening, with NCIS: Los Angeles nabbing 16.7 million viewers and 3.4, down a tad from ...
Mindy Kaling, Nat Faxon, Dennis Quaid
Were you charmed by Ben and Kate? How does Mindy Kaling fare outside of The Office? And should what happens on Vegas stay in Vegas? Now that these shows have premiered, TVGuide.com wants to know what you thought of them — as well as every other new show this season.
Dennis Quaid and Michael Chiklis
CBS' new drama Vegas has made a lot of headlines by putting its money on Dennis Quaid, who's making his debut on series television. But is the network also taking a bit of a gamble?
Fall Preview: Get scoop on all of this year's must-watch new shows
Quaid plays real-life rancher-turned-sheriff Ralph Lamb, who begrudgingly agrees to police 1960s Las Vegas against Michael Chiklis' Vincent Savino and other mobsters who are trying to get a foothold in the casinos. Although the drama is built on a CBS-friendly, case-of-the-week model, it's also a set in the past. And last season's The Playboy Club and Pan Am are non-living proof that period pieces can struggle to find an audience.
Executive producer Nicholas Pileggi, the man behind such mob stories as Goodfellas and Casino, isn't worried. "This is a fascinating period," he tells TVGuide.com...
Those still mourning the loss of Alcatraz — we won't lie, we are — will find some solace this fall when Sarah Jones joins the cast of CBS' new drama Vegas.
Vegas is inspired by the true story of Las Vegas Sheriff Ralph Lamb (Dennis Quaid), a rancher who goes up against powerful gangster Vincent Savino (Michael Chiklis) to help bring order to 1960s Sin City. Jones will play Mia, the smart and beautiful daughter of a Chicago heavy hitter, who works alongside Savino in the casino.
Alcatraz's Sarah Jones joins CBS' Vegas as new series regular
Last season, Jones also played a strong female on Fox's sci-fi drama Alcatraz, in which her character Rebecca Madsen went on the hunt for more than 300 guards and prisoners who vanished into thin air in 1963. Though the two characters are from two very different time periods, Jones says there are a few similarities between them...
Jonny Lee Miller and Lucy Liu
Last fall, eight of the top 10 shows added to Watchlist were picked up for a full season. Coincidence -- or are TVGuide.com users just that savvy at picking winners? And will they have the same Midas touch this year?
What is a Watchlist? This video explains
We're going to find out. Since May, when the networks announced their fall lineups at the annual upfronts presentations, we've been tracking which shows users were most excited about, as evidenced by their addition to Watchlists. Three months later, we've got a lot of data from our 500,000+ Watchlist users. So far, for example, users are generally more interested in...
Lucy Liu and Jonny Lee Miller
CBS rarely stirs the prime-time pot. It doesn't need to. Monkeying around is for other, more desperate networks — a point CBS Entertainment president Nina Tassler underscored when she took the stage Sunday for CBS' presentations at the annual TCA press tour carrying a large stuffed monkey. A not-so-subtle slap at NBC for having brought along an actual monkey — the breakout scene-stealer of its silly new sitcom Animal Practice — to pose with and otherwise try to distract the press from the peacock's dismal new lineup of shows.
