'Fringe,' 'Bones,' 'Parenthood,' 'NCIS: LA': Find out what's next in the Spoiler Room

It’s been quite the week for TV, Roomies. And as we head into finale season, the info keeps pouring in!

Below is what I’ve dug up this week, but remember that I use your inquiries as a guide. Let me know what shows you want to know about! And you can do so (as always) in two ways: via e-mail spoilerroom@ew.com and via Twitter @EWSandraG.

FRINGE: EPS TEASE TRIPPIEST EPISODE SINCE ‘BROWN BETTY’
Full disclosure: I was originally going to preview tonight’s episode of Fringe for you, but honestly, I’m in such a pleasant mood over the renewal that I say we move on to bigger matters, like episode 19, airing April 15.

Before the big news, Jeff Pinkner and Joel H. Wyman hopped on the phone with me to tease an episode I’ve been dying to know more about ever since I heard a rumor that it would be Astrid-centered, which, it turns out, isn’t entirely the case. Oh, I’ll just let them explain. READ FULL STORY

'Dancing with the Stars' premiere kicks up a win

More than 22 million people tuned into see the karate kid and a girl from “next door” on Monday’s Dancing with the Stars, according to preliminary ratings. The premiere of the 12th season, which featured Ralph Macchio and Kendra Wilkinson, averaged a 5.1 rating/15 share in adults 18-49 — down 20% from last spring’s start on March 22 but still enough to help ABC win the night in viewers (19 million) and most demos, including persons 2-11 and persons 12-34. The kids came to the show! Should some credit go to Disney star Chelsea Kane?

Thanks to the swell lead in, Castle (3.3/9, 12.7 million) was up 18% from its last original on Feb. 28 — but we’d like to think our cover story helped and got more of you interested. Last night’s results could change when the finals come in this afternoon, so it will be interesting to see if Dancing ends up averaging more than American Idol. Last week, the Fox competition show averaged 22.5 million on Wednesday and 19.5 million on Thursday. Stay tuned.

'Off the Map' doc heading to 'Castle' -- EXCLUSIVE

In the episode, titled “To Love and Die in L.A.,” Beckett heads to Los Angeles to track down the killer of her former mentor on the force. Meanwhile, Castle tags along to help his partner and also takes the opportunity to stop by the set of Heat Wave.

George plays an entrepreneur who meets the pair along the way, and he proves “to be a key character in solving their new case,” a source reveals. Previously announced guest star Dominic Purcell (Prison Break) will also appear, playing a movie producer.

Happy about this sorta-not-really crossover news, Castle/OTM fans?

Jane Seymour on her 'Castle' guest spot: 'I've played a lot of very evil people in my time.'

Jane Seymour, noble Dr. Quinn, medicine woman. She could never harm a thing. Or could she?

You won’t be so sure during tonight’s meta-tastic episode of Castle‘s “One Life to Lose,” which follows Castle and Beckett as they solve a murder that has taken place on the set of a soap opera called Temptation Lane. Seymour plays Gloria, the suspicious mother of the victim who finds herself (in true soap fashion) among a large group of suspects entangled in the mystery.

“As far as we can tell, she really is not necessarily all we imagine her to be. There’s more to Gloria than meets the eye,” she says. And that “more” is nothing good, but for Seymour, who will next be seen in the indie flick Lake Effect, that’s the best part.

“People always think that because of Dr. Quinn that I just play nice family stuff. But the truth of the matter is that East of Eden was a very successful thing for me in the past,” she says, referring to her manipulative character on the miniseries, Cathy Ames. “I’ve played a lot of very evil people in my time.” And after tonight, we’ll all be reminded that she does it rather well, too.

'Castle': Date or wait? Nathan Fillion and Stana Katic take sides. Who's right? POLL!

If you’ve read this week’s Entertainment Weekly cover story with Nathan Fillion, you know that he and his Castle costar Stana Katic have different opinions on when Castle and Beckett should get together. She thinks sooner (Moonlighting curse be damned); he thinks later. We asked them to plead their cases, then got show creator Andrew Marlowe to weigh in (his opinion is, after all, the one that really counts). Read their arguments below. We’re taking it to a vote.  READ FULL STORY

Nathan Fillion talks fan campaign to resurrect 'Firefly': 'I think that that's love. I don't think that's fanaticism'

The first time we talked to Nathan Fillion for
this week's cover of Entertainment Weekly, it was shortly after 9 p.m. ET on Sunday, March 6. Fans of Firefly, which was canceled by Fox in 2002 after 11 episodes, will recognize that date and time as the day reruns debuted on the Science Channel. Fillion did not. "Is that tonight?" he asked. "I knew it was going to record because I got the old search term 'Nathan Fillion' [programmed on my TiVo]

, so if I’m doin’ somethin’ it pops up. But am I doing anything special? No, I am not doing anything special. I thought I might go to a movie tonight.”

That sounds like the (healthy) response of a man who’s let go of the past, but, of course, one of the reasons fans love Fillion is because he hasn’t. Speaking to EW.com in February about Science Channel’s plans to rerun the Joss Whedon space Western — and seriously, how many actors with a current show, ABC’s Castle, averaging 10.6 million viewers do interviews for reruns? — Fillion innocently mentioned that were he to win $300 million in the California lottery, he would buy the rights from Fox and don Capt. Mal Reynolds’ tight pants again. READ FULL STORY

'Castle': Adrian Pasdar on what two-parter episode means for Castle and Beckett

castle-pasdarImage Credit: Randy Holmes/ABC[WARNING: Mild spoilers ahead.] Yes, tonight’s episode of Castle is everything it’s been touted to be: a high-stakes race to save New York City from extreme devastation. It’s a nail-biter unlike anything we’ve seen on the show up to this point, but it’s also, at its heart, an episode of Castle. And guest star Adrian Pasdar, who joins the series for two episodes as Homeland Security agent Mark Fallon, told EW that it was that fact — not getting a chance to play a sharp, tough-talking agent  — that was most satisfying of all.

“It was such great privilege to be part of the show in many ways, but [the storyline] did service the overall arc of what the show Castle is meant to be. And I think that’s a great thing,” he said.

In the episode, Castle and Beckett need all the help they can get as they race to recover a radioactive bomb. Agent Fallon tries to be that help, but soon finds himself at odds with the twosome. READ FULL STORY

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 spoilerroom@ew.com. 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.

houseImage Credit: Harper Smith/FoxGoody for House M.D. and Lie to Me: The Fox dramas not only posted gains in adults 18-49 versus last week but helped the network to post its most-watched Monday of the TV season with entertainment programming (9 million), according to preliminary results. The medical drama earned a 3.7 rating/10 share among 18-49 – up 6% versus last week – and was also the highest rated show of the night in all the key demos. It averaged 10.4 million. Lie to Me posted a 3.7/10 in adults – up 39% versus last week – and averaged 7.6 million. Needless to say, Fox won the night in the key demo (3.1/8). Each 18-49 ratings point represents 1.3 million.
