spoiler-roomImage Credit: Giovanni Rufino/The CW; Monty Brinton/CBS; Karen Neal/ABCTV, I wish I knew how to quit you.

Actually…no I don’t. Without you, we’d all be bored, heartless, apathetic loners. Let’s never part. I’ll make you a deal: You stay highly entertaining, I’ll spoil, and we will all promise to consume our television programming greedily. And judging by what’s coming up on Castle, Outsourced, How I Met Your Mother, Gossip Girl and a ton of other shows, you’re going to be keeping up your end of the bargain.

(Roomies, don’t forget to send your questions — and general ramblings — to I promise I read them all. Or tweet me @EWSandraG.) READ FULL STORY

'Gossip Girl,' 'Good Wife,' 'Supernatural': Find out what's next in the Spoiler Room

Spoiler-RoomImage Credit: John Paul Filo/CBS; Giovanni Rufino/The CW; Jordan Nuttal/The CW; Adam Taylor/CBSWhat is it about Leighton Meester that makes her so incredibly pair-able with others? Whether she’s standing beside Chuck or Dan (or Minka Kelly, for that matter), she simply oozes chemistry. Well, whatever “it” is, it makes for great TV (and perhaps also movies that you really want to see despite a fear of losing self respect). This week, I talked chemistry and more with Blair Waldorf’s amazing puppetmasters, Stephanie Savage and Josh Safran, who dish about what we can expect next from our favorite schemer and the rest of the gang. I also spoke with Matt Czuchry (insert tiny cartoon hearts here) about The Good Wife, dug up some dirt on Supernatural‘s (now postponed) return, spoke with Rachelle Lefevre about Off the Map, and much more.

'Castle': Writers Andrew Marlowe and Will Beall dish on the big kiss and what's next -- EXCLUSIVE

Castle-Will-BeallImage Credit: Adam Taylor/ABC; Jesse Grant/Getty ImagesSPOILER ALERT: If you haven’t seen tonight’s episode of Castle, do not read the Q&A below. You’ve been warned.

Three-and-a-half seasons of build up led to tonight’s heart-tugging episode of Castle, in which Beckett and her handsome devil of a partner sealed the deal in an alley — as part of a decoy. Well, at least it started off that way. As you’ll read in my interview with episode writer Will Beall (who recently signed on to pen the new Lethal Weapon movie) and creator/writer Andrew Marlowe, the repercussions of the pair’s long-awaited smooch will be just as real as that second kiss was. (Cheers here.) Read below for more on this highly anticipated episode (that I know you’re already re-watching) and sound off below. READ FULL STORY

'Castle,' 'Parks and Recreation,' 'Detroit 1-8-7,' 'Justified': Find out what's next in the Spoiler Room

spoiler-roomImage Credit: Byron Cohen/NBC; Bob D'Amico/ABC; Prashant Gupta/FX I feel all tingly inside, Roomies — and that’s not just my body responding to that Swanson I ate for breakfast. Frankly, it’s because TV shows are coming back from their breaks (a.k.a. the cold, dark months of TV hell), and there’s a lot to be pumped about.

First up this week, we have Castle scoop, info on Detroit 1-8-7 (SAVE IT!), and what you can look forward to from Pawnee (besides a sunnier life in general) now that Parks is back. There’s also casting bit on Smallville, Chuck EP Chris Fedak responds to our cries for justice, Chris Colfer weighs in on Kurt’s return to New Directions, and much more. Eat up. Go ahead. Make a pig of yourself. All I ask is that you feed me your scoop requests in return. (E-mail them to or Tweet them to me directly @EWSandraG.)


It’s almost here, Castle fans (who have been begging me all week for dish on the show’s big Jan. 24th episode). Almost. Here. The smooch you’ve been waiting for. And I’m happy to say that the episode is completely worth the wait. But not so fast. Don’t start picking out china patterns for the pair just yet. While the kiss is, indeed, not a dream, you know that this is still Castle. This is still Beckett. And there’s still a very important case — the one of Beckett’s mom’s murder — being investigated. That’s all I can say. On that note, however, the kiss, in my opinion, isn’t even the best part of the episode. (You probably guessed that they wouldn’t put the best part of the episode in promos, right?) I’d say there are two better moments. The first comes before the smooch when Castle is talking with his mom about his most recent brush with death, and he admits to her (in his Nathan Fillion melt-me-into-goo voice) that his time with Beckett is “*** ****t *** ****s **y****.” And the other comes sometime after the roughly 13-second smooch. After the episode airs, be sure to check for my exclusive chat with Andrew Marlowe and Will Beall, who penned the episode. READ FULL STORY

'Castle' teaser: Watch Castle, Beckett seal the deal

castleImage Credit: Michael Desmond/ABCAs Stana Katic teased to EW in November, Castle (Nathan Fillion) and Beckett (Katic) are finally going to seal the deal this month. “They are going to get super close,” she told us. “Closer than they’ve ever gotten before.” Well, the moment has finally arrived, my friends:  TVLine has a pretty hot snippet of the smooch that fans have been waiting for – though the way Beckett darts her eyes while laying a wet one on Castle suggests that maybe her heart (or her mind) isn’t fully invested in the moment. What’s going on, woman?

For her part, Katic keeps saying to anyone who will listen that these two belong together. “They are meant to be. I think they can be a couple and still be spicy and funny,” she told EW. “Everyone else is like, ‘Oh no we can’t do that. That will ruin it. That will kill the show.’ [A Moonlighting] curse has come up. But no way, man. Don’t believe in it at all.”

The episode airs Jan. 24. Meanwhile, Castle has already received a full season pickup for 2011-12.

'Skating With the Stars' posts a season low; a tough night for 'American Country Awards' and 'Castle'

ratings-320.jpgImage Credit: Ethan Miller/Getty Images; Harper Smith/NBC; Bob D'Amico/ABCSheesh, have most of you given up on television for the remainder of 2010? A bunch of shows hit season lows on Monday, with specials like the American Country Awards practically dead on arrival. Perhaps you were shopping? Those who did tune in chose CBS over everybody else: The network won the night in adults 18-49 (3.3 rating/9 share) and viewers (10.5 million), even though only two of its shows posted gains versus their last original episodes.  How I Met Your Mother was up 3 percent to a  3.6/10 (9.4 million) and Rules of Engagement was up 7 percent to a 3.1/8 (8.8 million), but Two and a Half Men hit a season low with a 4.1/10 (13.3 million), as did Mike & Molly (3.4/8, 11 million), and Hawaii Five-O (2.7/7, 10.2 million). Each 18-49 rating point represents 1.3 million viewers.

NBC finished second for the night in the demo (2.4/6) and viewers (7.3 million), with the two-hour special The Sing-Off posting a 22 percent gain versus last year (2.8/7) and averaging 8.5 million. Chase, however was down 6 percent versus last week (1.5/4) and only lured 5 million.

Fox and ABC were tied for third among 18-49 (1.5/4) while the Alphabet finished third in viewers (6 million) followed by Fox (5.9 million). Skating With The Stars posted another dreadful rating – a season low of 1.0/3, down 17 percent versus last week. It averaged 4.8 million. (You think ABC will renew this show?) There was a repeat of Modern Family, which did no favors for Castle: The drama earned a season low of 2.2/6 – down 12 percent from its last original on Nov. 15. It averaged 8.6 million.

Fox aired the American Country Awards, which earned a mere 1.4/5 in the demo and drew 6 million viewers.

'Modern Family' tops 'Glee' in viewers 18-49 after DVR ratings added in week 9

Modern Family has something to be very gleeful about in week 9 of the television season. After DVR ratings were factored in, the ABC comedy surpassed Glee‘s ratings among viewers 18-49 during the week ending Nov. 21, making it the No. 1 scripted show in that demographic with 6.3 million. Glee, meanwhile, stood strong with 6.2 million viewers in the demo, and Grey’s Anatomy rounded out the top three with 5.8 million.

Here’s a look at the top ten in overall DVR viewers:

1) Hawaii Five-0 (CBS): 3.21 million gained from DVRs*
2) Modern Family (ABC): 3.14 million
3) Grey’s Anatomy (ABC): 2.94 million
4) The Mentalist (CBS): 2.83 million
5) Glee (FOX): 2.68 million
6) NCIS (CBS): 2.54 million
7) Castle (ABC): 2.51 million
8 ) Criminal Minds (CBS): 2.44 million
9) The Good Wife (CBS): 2.37 million
10) House (FOX): 2.35 million

'Castle' scoop: Will Castle seal deal with Beckett?

castleImage Credit: Michael Desmond/ABCNow this is one mother-of-a-teaser for you Castle fans who’ve been aching for Castle (Nathan Fillion) and Beckett (Stana Katic) to seal the deal. Talking exclusively to EW, Katic teased that all their sexual tension may finally lead to something on Jan. 10. “They are going to get super close in episode 13. Closer than they’ve ever gotten before,” the actress said while walking the red carpet of the American Music Awards on Sunday. “I’ll leave you with that.”

Katic keeps saying to anyone who will listen that these two belong together. “They are meant to be. I think they can be a couple and still be spicy and funny. Everyone else is like, ‘Oh no we can’t do that. That will ruin it. That will kill the show.’ [A Moonlighting] curse has come up. But no way, man. Don’t believe in it at all.”

Until then, obstacles continue to arise. Just this week, the ABC drama began production on the Jan. 3 episode that stars Laura Prepon as Natalie Gray, the actress who’s been cast as Nikki Heat in the movie version of Castle’s book Heat Wave. As fans know, the author based Nikki on his beloved Beckett. So will sparks fly when Natalie shadows Beckett as she investigates a millionaire matchmaker death with Castle? “She comes in to trail Beckett and study her, learn about her,” says Fillion, who also walked the red carpet Sunday. “Castle is really cheesed because she has never read the books. She’s only read the screenplay and she’s just into the character and not the words or the man who created Nikki Heat. At first he was like, ‘I can’t believe they picked her,’ and now he’s all, ‘I can’t believe she isn’t paying attention to me.’ It causes some friction at the workplace to say the least. He likes to be the center of attention.”

“Beckett is okay with it at first,” adds Katic. “Beckett’s the one who invites her in and figures it will be no different than Castle following her, but then it starts to get a little too Single White Female.” – With reporting from Carrie Bell

'Castle' Exclusive: 'That '70s Show' vet Laura Prepon cast as... Beckett?!

Go ahead and read that again: I realize it’s a lot to take in. READ FULL STORY

Ausiello: Let me see if I can peel back the thick layer of denial long enough to type this next sentence: My last day at EW is this Friday. As far as where I’m going, click here to have your memory refreshed. Or just join — or, rather, like — my new Facebook page. More specific details about my next steps will be posted there shortly. There’s also Twitter. Okay, time to climb back into my denial suit and get crackin’ on my final AA at EW. Sources confirm to me exclusively that I’m going out with a bang!

Question: Any information on when Olivia Wilde is returning to House? —Christine
Ausiello: Probably not until spring. You’ll be happy to know that her temporary replacement, Amber Tamblyn, makes a positive first impression in her Nov. 8 debut. As you would expect, her character — supersmart and moralistic med student Martha M. Masters — gets quite a hazing from House‘s boys club. We’ll soon discover that a member of said club shares a past with House‘s “immutable obstacle,” as Dr. Crankenstein calls her. Other colorful nicknames assigned to the newbie on her first day of work include:

* The Internet with breasts
* Small Wonder
* The love child of Einstein and Mary Poppins
* The Bunny
* Pippy Long Division

Question: House scoop? —Jennifer
Ausiello: House pink-slips a member of his team during November sweeps. Not once, not twice, but three times. Also, three major characters do some jail time. READ FULL STORY
