'Hawaii Five-0' to air special episode after AFC Championship

Hawaii Five-0 has scored a touchdown timeslot.

CBS announced today that the show will air a special episode Sunday following the AFC Championship football game — a high viewership timeslot that is sometimes thought of as second only to the coveted post-Super Bowl position. This year the post-Super Bowl timeslot went to Elementary.

Per the episode description, the hour will find Chin trapped in a Halawa Prison and fighting to escape before other inmates discover he is a member of law enforcement.

And in an especially splashy move, the episode will also feature seven new recordings from the legendary Jimi Hendrix. The songs, which have never been heard before, will be released March 5 as part of People, Hell and Angels, an upcoming collection of Hendrix’s previously unreleased recordings.

'Hawaii Five-0' to let viewers pick episode ending

It’s a whodunit with a live twist!

CBS has announced that viewers will have a chance to choose the ending of an upcoming episode of Hawaii Five-0 — a move the network says is first of its kind.

During the Jan. 14 broadcast, fans will be given a chance to vote for the person they want to be named the killer.

Per the storyline, the team is investigating the death of an O’ahu State University professor, and the prime suspects are his boss, teaching assistant and a student who was caught cheating. Viewers will then vote on CBS.com and Twitter (using the hashtags #theBoss, #theTA or #theStudent), and the ending that gets the most votes will be aired. (Separate voting will take place for eastern/central and pacific time zones, and all three different endings will all be available on CBS.com.) READ FULL STORY

CHANDRA WILSON ON BAILEY’S FUTURE … AND GREY’S ANATOMY

If you read my chat with Grey’s Anatomy‘s Chandra Wilson last week, then you know that Bailey will spend the next episodes “kicking and screaming” her way to the altar. But one thing Wilson thinks might help Bailey get into the groove a bit more? If Ben put a ring on it!

“My finger is light, that’s all I’m saying. It’s very, very light,” she says, laughing. “And he used to be an anesthesiologist. You’d think there would be some sort of bling involved. But her finger is rather light — at least for 2012. So we’ll see what happens going forward.” But regardless of Bailey’s left hand gets a little heavier, Wilson says Bailey is committed. “She’s going to see [it] through,” she says. “You can’t tell somebody you’re going to marry them and then play around.”

And while Bailey and Ben could have many happy years ahead of them, as always, questions are starting to arise about Grey‘s future. Now midway though its ninth season, Wilson says she is anything but tired. And while there won’t be official word about a tenth season for several months, she says she’s personally on board. “I think the consensus is that as long as our writers want to keep writing, we’re here to keep riding the ride,” she says. “As actors, we’re very cognizant of the opportunities we’ve been given. Sooner or later it will be the end.”

Rumer Willis cast as Masi Oka's crush on 'Hawaii Five-0'

How’s this for a coupling: Masi Oka and Rumer Willis.

In an upcoming episode of CBS’ Hawaii Five-0, Willis has been cast as a potential love interest for the lovably dorky Dr. Max Bergman (Masi Oka). She’ll play Sabrina, a cute young bank teller interested in a date with Bergman, but then her bank is held up in a botched robbery. Bruce Willis’ daughter previous had an recurring role a couple years ago on The CW’s 90210 and had guest-star stints on CBS’ CSI: NY and ABC Family’s The Secret Life of the American Teenager.

Willis appears in the same episode as previously announced guest stars C. Thomas Howell and Victoria’s Secret super model Behati Prinsloo. In fact, here’s a rundown of all known upcoming Hawaii guest castings: Christine Lahti, Taryn Manning (11/19). Vanessa Marcil (11/26). Tom Arnold, Daniel Henney (12/10). Howell, Prinsloo, Willis (12/3). And George Takei (12/17).

'Hawaii Five-0': Scott Caan previews intense episode for Danny

Tonight’s Hawaii Five-0 will teach fans a little more about the man behind the badge when a flashback-heavy episode delves deep into Danny’s past as a cop in the New York/New Jersey area.

“It’s basically a look at how I ended up where I am,” explains Scott Caan. “The episode [in present day] is about some terrorists we’re chasing in Hawaii, and then later, you realize why we [are using] flashbacks.”

Terrence Howard plays a part in the flashback portion, playing a bad guy with an upper hand, and suffice it to say his actions have a huge impact on Danny’s future and his life. And while Howard’s character is less than pleasant, Caan says he revels in the opportunity to mix up the dynamics on set. “When you do a TV show, you end up working with the same people over and over, which is great, but it’s also fun to have new people come in and turn out a story that’s about your character and not about a case specifically,” he says. “Any time that they come up with something that’s different from the normal procedural stuff, it’s fun for us.”

'The Walking Dead,' 'Hawaii Five-0,' 'Hart of Dixie,' 'Grimm': Find out what's next in the Spoiler Room

Even though New York is freezing, things are heating up in TV Land.

Okay, to be honest, it’s not that cold today; I just needed something to open the column with. Give me a break, you know how hard it is to come up with random openers every week? Does anyone actually read these two first paragraphs? Bueller? Bueller? Forget it. But don’t forget to send questions: spoilerroom@ew.com

‘THE WALKING DEAD’: MORE MAJOR CASUALTIES TO COME?
The collision with Woodbury is coming and Lauren Cohan couldn’t be more excited for fans of The Walking Dead to see it for themselves. “Maggie plays a big part in that,” she teases of the clash. “It’s going to be crazy!”

Crazy — and deadly, as one might expect. “The body count is not done,” she says. “That’s pretty much all I can say, but we’re not just going to see death. There’s going to be a whole host of challenges now that we’ve got the human threat. Woodbury is up to no good. The Governor is up to no good; it’s really scary. We’ve got some scary stuff ahead.”

And with the gang and Rick still reeling from at least two major losses (Carol = RIP?), exactly who will step up as the leader when the two camps finally meet is not entirely clear. The only guarantee? They’re going to have a formidable foe in the Gov. “It’s interesting to see within the prison [group that] people step up and lead even if they don’t want to. In Woodbury, the Governor steps up and takes control because that’s something he couldn’t have gotten away with in the real world. And that has absolutely no limits.”

In case you missed it, check out our longer chat with Cohan here.

'Hawaii Five-0' to remake 'fan-favorite' episode of original series -- EXCLUSIVE

HURRICANE ME IS ON THE WAY!

But I’m not going to let pesky wind, rain, or Frankenstorms get in the way of giving you some scoop on your favorite shows. (It did, however, royally poop on some fun in-person chats I had set up. #NCIS #Revolution) However, we solider on.

‘NCIS: LA’: WHICH COUPLE WILL BE K-I-S-S-I-N-G BY 2013?
I have been loving the flirting between Eric and Nell this season, it has been adorable to witness! Can we hope to see more of it this season and see that relationship continue?  — Cheryl

Remember the almost-kiss between Nell and Eric earlier this season? Remember how bummed you were that it didn’t happen? Well, be sad no longer: There’s a KISS COMING! “I won’t tell you which episode,” teases executive producer Shane Brennan. “But there is a kiss coming. It’s nerd love!” (Extra hints because I like you: It will air before December and they are NOT on a mission.)

Now, before Kensi and Deeks fans cry foul and claim they’ve been waiting for a love connection longer, Brennan is quick to point out that the two couples are on very different paths. “Nerds don’t hang around when it comes to love. They jump right in,” he jokes. “It certainly has developed. It’s an intellectual relationship that sometimes struggles to find its physicality, but that’s the nature of the characters. Whereas Kensi and Deeks there a playfulness and sexy tension.” Look for Nell and Eric to continue to sizzle this season, and, Brennan predicts, “If it’s a race to the end, I think they’re leading Kensi and Deeks.”

For much more on NCIS: LA, keep an eye out for my November sweeps preview tomorrow!
