Top fall TV time-slot battles this week (and who will win)

Right after the fall schedule was announced last May, I posted a rundown of the most intriguing time-period battles and who I thought would win. There’s been a lot of buzz and new intel about these shows since then, but I’m keeping my predictions the same — plus adding a several new entries. So here they are, below. Be sure to check the Inside TV blog every morning for the ratings to see how your favorite shows perform (of course, in today’s DVR era, time periods are less important than they were five years ago, but don’t be fooled: The slots still matter — just ask any show that faced off against American Idol, or one that had the pleasure of airing after it):

Who: CBS’ Hawaii Five-0 vs. NBC’s Playboy Club vs. ABC’s Castle
When
: Mondays at 10 p.m.
Verdict: Castle pulled off a surprise victory in this slot by the end of last season against the first year of Five-0, gradually conquering a time period that it always lost to CBS when CSI: Miami was there. (Castle was especially aided by Charlie Sheen’s freak out and Two and a Half Men going into repeats — thus weakening CBS’ 9 p.m. hour’s lead into Hawaii.) So this is the rematch, with Hawaii bulking up with a ton of guest stars and adding Terry O’Quinn to the cast. Expectations are modest for Playboy Club. Hawaii will go big tonight when Men returns tonight, but in the coming weeks Castle will probably end up slightly on top. And now on Friday nights, it’s Chuck vs… READ FULL STORY

'Grey's Anatomy,' 'How I Met Your Mother,' 'House': Find out what's next in the Spoiler Room

Welcome to Spoiler Room: Jen’s Edition. Kidding. But also not really. After wrapping up today’s column, I realized I chose four questions from people named Jen. I promise you, this is not an act of favoritism. But now I’m really curious how many of you are out there.

Regardless, if you ask, I’ll answer. So get askin’! Send your questions, ponderings, new show scoop requests, and post-premiere reactions to spoilerroom@ew.com. And if many of your names happen to be Jen, fantastic. (Your move, Sarahs.)

‘GREY’S ANATOMY': FINALLY SOME MER/DER FOR YOU

I can’t tell you how often I get harassed lovingly asked for Meredith and Derek scoop, and after sitting through next week’s two-hour premiere with my mouth hanging open for 80 minutes (two hours, minus commercials), here’s what you’re going to get out of me on Mer/Der, Crowen, and Alex (who is sans nickname because he’s all alone. Poor Alex). READ FULL STORY

'Grey's Anatomy,' 'NCIS: LA,' 'How I Met Your Mother,' 'Drop Dead Diva': Find out what's next in the Spoiler Room

This week has been my favorite week of all time for at least the past 10 years. It’s the week EW’s Fall TV Preview hits stands! No joke, the issue is full of great scoop. (And no one even forced me to write that!) So combine that awesomeness with the goodies in today’s column, and you’ve got yourself a giant feast of spoiler-y goodness this wonderful Friday. I issue a hundred “You’re welcome”s in advance, you spoiled human beings. (Wow, did I accidentally make a pun? This is shaping up to be literally the best day ever.)

For the record, I don’t know who spiked my morning tea either. But remind me to thank them. Also, let me thank you, the wonderful people who are sending questions every week. You are appreciated it. Now, keep it up!

E-mail all queries to spoilerroom@ew.com or tweet me: @EWSandraG. Onward!

'Castle': New pictures reveal (non?) secret from season premiere

Don’t let those worried faces fool you. Even though the good people at Castle have tried (unsuccessfully) to worry us all about Beckett’s future, the promo pictures for this season show us, among other things, that Beckett is alive and well.

Click here to view the full set of photos.

The season premiere of Castle promises to be an emotional hour, indeed, but it also looks to be pretty kick-ass, too. As you’ll see as you click through the pics, there’s a fight (in which Seamus Dever’s Ryan has to hold Molly Quinn back from getting too close the action!), what looks like a good scolding from “Iron Gates,” and, wait, is Beckett handing in her shield?! Or that could be Capt. Montgomery’s shield. Regardless, Beckett doesn’t look to happy with her new boss.

Spot any secrets I might have missed in these photos, readers?

'Castle': Beckett fights for her life, Castle spars with Josh in new promo!

Let’s just get this out of the way: OF COURSE SHE LIVES! I mean, there’s no Castle without Beckett (Stana Katic). Period.

That said, this new Castle promo really gives us a great look at the drama that will arise in the aftermath of Beckett’s shooting at the end of last season. Castle’s (Nathan Fillion) bloody hands and ominous voiceover (“Everything that’s happened, happened because of me”) are completely chill-worthy. Not to mention the first look at the fight between Josh and Castle that’s been teased. (#Team Castle, duh)

In the quick flashes, we also see new Capt. Victoria Gates (Penny Johnson Jerald), Esposito (Jon Huertas) and Ryan (Seamus Dever) walking intensely down a hall in their dress blues (yum), and what appears to be Alexis (Molly Quinn) freaking out on someone.

Watch it all for yourself below! READ FULL STORY

'Castle,' 'Leverage,' 'Supernatural,' 'Fringe': Find out what's next in the Spoiler Room

No time for small talk, today. Sorry. A storm a’brewin’ on the East Coast!

I have TV on DVD to purchase, windows to tape, snacks to buy, and an entire wall of attractive celebrities to encase in plexiglass in the event water levels reach EW’s third floor!

Thankfully, I will still be able to check your scoop requests over the weekend, so send them in! (spoilerroom@ew.com — Remember, if you don’t ask, you’ll never know!) Also, follow the progression of my hurricane-cause cabin fever on Twitter: @EWSandraG.

See you next week… (I hope). READ FULL STORY

'Castle': Cast gets old-timey in new promo photo!

I keep staring at this new promo photo for Castle and trying to think about what to say. But words truly escape me. It’s. Just. That. Good.

The colors. The styling. Nathan Fillion seemingly plucked straight out of my noir-themed dreams, in which he always co-stars (with me, duh). Oh, and look, Beckett’s (Stana Katic) alive…and fancy looking.

Also debuting in the new cast photo is Penny Johnson Jerald (third from right), who, as reported, joins the cast this season as Capt. Victoria Gates. (Spoilers on that here.)

There’s still too many days until Sept. 19, but hopefully these photos help curve the craving a bit. Check out two more (non-themed photos) below! READ FULL STORY

'Fringe,' 'Sons of Anarchy,' 'Castle,' 'Community': Find out what's next in the Spoiler Room

Did you know the first 100 words of this column are the last 100 words I write every week? I say this for two reasons: 1) If you’ve ever noticed the coherency of this column increases as you work your way through it, you now know why. 2) You now also have an incentive to click to the second page of this column. (Yes! I’m paginated now! << I don’t know if that statement is the “Spoiler Room” speaking or yours truly. I’m going to say it’s the “room” since I, in fact, am not paginated.)

At any rate, take note of the little number “2” because it’s your path 2 more scoop. (See what I did there.) Hey, I warned you just one paragraph ago…

Remember to send scoop requests to spoilerroom@ew.com (note to the two smooshed “r”s) and follow me on Twitter for more things that don’t make a lot of sense and a few things that do (like TV scoop!). @EWSandraG READ FULL STORY

'Vampire Diaries,' 'Bones,' 'How I Met Your Mother,' 'NCIS,': Find out what's next in the Spoiler Room

It’s beginning to look a lot like fall TV time! And I’m so excited, I could scream! But that would be really awkward for the person in the office next to me, I imagine.

Instead, I’ll sit here and wait for your questions to pop up in the Spoiler Room inbox (spoilerroom@ew.com).

Clearly my brain is fried. So I’ll leave you to read. Remember to send in your inquiries and follow me on Twitter for more awkward thoughts (and maybe some scoop): @EWSandraG.

‘VAMPIRE DIARIES': EP TEASES MATT’S PAINFUL ROAD AHEAD

We wouldn’t wish suffering on anyone… except for maybe The Vampire Diaries’ Matt Donovan. But that’s only because actor Zach Roerig guts us when he gets teary. TVD exec producer Julie Plec almost got our eyes wet describing how Matt will figure into the season 3 story line that has Jeremy (Steven R. McQueen) seeing the ghosts of his dead exes — including Matt’s late sister Vicki (Kayla Ewell). READ FULL STORY

'The Vampire Diaries,' 'White Collar,' 'Supernatural,' 'Raising Hope': Find out what's next in the Spoiler Room

Hey, Roomies. I missed you during my travels! But your letters and questions kept me warm last week in San Diego during Comic-Con. (No, seriously, they made me sleep outside and I used them as a blanket. I’m kidding… probably.)

So, here we are, on the doorstep of fall TV, and we’re knocking hard until we get all the info we crave. Let’s get to it.

Remember to keep those queries coming! Mail them to spoilerroom@ew.com or tweet them to me @EWSandraG. Also, if you have a little time, send me your thoughts on Comic-Con. What you liked (videos?), what you didn’t like (the stupid faces I apparently make when I get really excited), and tell me if your scoop appetite was fed to your satisfaction. We have 360-ish days to work on it, and we’d like to start now. Love you like nerds love Mrs. Fields and overpriced memorabilia! Till next week.

‘VAMPIRE DIARIES': KLAUS AND ELENA DISH!
There’s so much to look forward to on this season of The Vampire Diaries. Elena’s 18th birthday, bad Stefan, and soapy Damon. But when prompted for his outlook for the season, Joseph Morgan says he’s most excited to meet Klaus’ family. “We get a chance to go back and see the point where they became vampires and where the curse was placed on Klaus to suppress his hybrid nature, his hybrid side,” he told a roundtable. “It’ll be interesting when we introduce other originals who are possibly equally as powerful or have some sort of emotional hold over Klaus … to see what that brings out of him.” READ FULL STORY

Comic-Con 2011: Test your Nathan Fillion knowledge!

Sure, you’re a Nathan Fillion fan. But how would you fare against two women who claim to be his biggest fan? While at Comic-Con to promote Castle — and just generally radiate awesomeness throughout the convention center (we did, after all, name him “Geek God” on one of our recent covers) — Fillion stopped by EW’s VIP lounge to test fans on their Fillion knowledge. Click the jump to watch the video and play along at home! Without further ado, enjoy what we like to call The Fillion Feud! READ FULL STORY

'Castle' graphic novel: A peek inside 'Richard Castle's Deadly Storm' -- EXCLUSIVE PHOTOS

Castle is headed to Comic-Con again this year, but before the fan-favorite drama heads to the land of nerds and dreams-come-true, EW has the exclusive first look at the graphic novel based off of Richard Castle’s Derrick Storm mystery series, Richard Castle’s Deadly Storm (out Sept. 28).

Comic-Con street cred = earned? I’d say so, especially considering the comic book, co-written by Brian Michael Bendis (Avengers) and Kelly Sue DeConnick (Captain America) and first seen in the season finale, comes from Marvel.

Richard Castle’s Deadly Storm will be released Sept. 28. Castle’s Comic-Con panel takes place Sunday. See the schedule here. And click below to see the images!

Emmy nominating ballots due a week from today! Five burning questions answered.

On June 24, Emmy nominating ballots are due. (View the ballot listings online here. Fringe‘s Joshua Jackson and Mike & Molly‘s Melissa McCarthy will announce the nominees on July 14.) To celebrate, we phoned John Leverence, the Television Academy’s SVP of Awards, and asked a few evergreen burning questions.

• Who decides whether a show like Glee or Castle enters as a comedy or drama? Producers submit themselves, and then there is a review. Leverence says there have been ongoing discussions about whether to split the comedy category into two — sitcoms and dramedies. “When the Board was thinking about this, the feeling was that no, comedy is a broad spectrum, but we think that the comedy series category can accommodate that broad spectrum. You have the same kind of thing going on in the drama series. You have something like The Killing, which after every episode you want to go kill yourself … But you have things like Castle and White Collar,” he says. “The awards committee did a review, looked at the lineup, and they said, ‘The hell with it, let’s leave comedies where they are.’ The Board of Governors does not want to get into a game of Whac-A-Mole.”  READ FULL STORY
