'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

'Ringer' premiere gets solid CW rating

The return of Sarah Michelle Geller to series TV delivered a solid, if unexciting, number for The CW.

The good news: Ringer greatly improved upon its 90210 lead-in and performed far better (up 66 percent) than Life Unexpected‘s debut in the slot last year. But Ringer was originally developed for CBS and has generated plenty of headlines for The CW this summer, and it would have been nice to see the drama’s debut break out of network’s standard ratings zone.

Ringer was seen by 2.7 million viewers and earned a 1.2 rating among adults 18-49. That’s the largest total audience — though not the highest rating — that the network has had in that slot since 90210 premiered there a few years ago (both SMG and 90210 draw an older audience than, say, Vampire Diaries, which is why the total viewers number is relatively high compared to the more important number — the rating).  The return of 90210 (1.6 million, 0.8) dipped 11 percent from its premiere last fall.

'Parenthood' season 3 promo: Baby, baby -- VIDEO

Has it been too long since Parenthood has reduced you to a cry baby? Well, you’ll have to wait a pregnant pause (and other baby puns!) for the Sept. 13 premiere of the series. A new promo for the NBC series has hit the web, and features some more lighthearted times in the Braverman family. Adam (Peter Krause) and an overdue Kristina (Monica Potter) have a tender moment, thanks to a few beers, and Sarah (Lauren Graham) makes a move on Mark (Jason Ritter). As she says, “I kissed him like a starving person who saw a sandwich.”

'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

'Parenthood': Sam Jaeger teases adoption struggles for Joel and Julia and...talks about sex (VIDEO)

It appears infertility was only a tiny bit of the baby-seeking problems for Joel and Julia on Parenthood.

In a chat with EW during this week’s TCA press tour in Los Angeles, actor Sam Jaeger teased the adoption battles the couple will face in season 3 and says that it won’t be nearly as fun as trying to conceive. (Watch the video after the jump!)

NBC renews 'Parenthood,' 'Harry's Law'

parenthood

NBC solidly performing family dramedy Parenthood is going to raise a third season.

The network picked up the show for a third round, with fellow bubble show Chuck also looking likely to come back for season five.

Parenthood didn’t do as well this season as its first, averaging 6.7 million viewers and a 2.7 adult demo rating including DVR use, down about 21 percent from last year. Still, that’s good enough for NBC, which along with ABC has had trouble filling its 10 p.m. slots in recent years.

The network also picked up the modestly performing Harry’s Law for a second season. The show had a fairly large audience of 11.6 million viewers, but was weak in the adult demo, averaging 2.3.

Also in the current NBC news-pocalypse pre-upfront frenzy: NBC has renewed Chuck for a final season, has cancelled The Event, has rejected Wonder Woman,  greenlit Chelsea Handler’s sitcom and ordered dramas about Playboy and others.

Season finale alert! When to expect goodbye episodes from 'Survivor,' 'Chuck,' and 'Saturday Night Live'

Where did the time ago? It seems like just yesterday that we were anxiously awaiting the start of Lone Star; now we can barely remember that two-timing cad. That’s because it’s season finale time – that heartbreaking period when we bid adieu to nine months of scripted heaven to make way for three months of unscripted hell on the broadcast networks. (Don’t worry, Big Brother: We still adore thee).

Fire up your DVR playlists, kids … here are all the broadcast net finales. READ FULL STORY

What’s this?

What’s this?

There are finales everywhere. What’s this?

I can’t believe my eyes; I must be dreaming. Wake up, Sandra, this isn’t fair!

Woah! Musical introduction. This is what the end of the season does to me, folks. I’m losing it. But that also means summer’s on the way, so remember to start sending your scoop requests for summer TV soon! And, as a special treat, please also send your season finale questions as well.

As usual, all queries/suggestions/ponderings get sent to spoilerroom@ew.com or @EWSandraG. And as a reminder, we’re on summer schedule now. So Spoiler Room will be on Fridays only, until late summer.

Thanks, y’all.

'Jamie Oliver's Food Revolution' doesn't cause one in the ratings; good night for 'Parenthood'

Gee, what would have happened if it were opposite an original of Glee? The premiere of Jamie Oliver’s Food Revolution on ABC only managed to post a 1.4 rating/4 share among adults 18-49 — down 36% from last season’s Sunday premiere on March 21, according to early results. It averaged a 5.3 million and was ultimately crushed in viewers by NCIS (19.2 million) and The Biggest Loser (which averaged 7.1 million over two hours).

CBS ended up winning the night in the demo (3.0/8) and viewers (15.5 million), with NCIS earning a 3.8/12, followed by NCIS: LA (3.3/9, 15.3 million) and The Good Wife (2.0/5, 10.9 million). NBC came in second in the demo (2.4/7) with Loser earning a 2.6/7 and Parenthood posting a 5% gain to a 2.0/5 (you just had to have sex, didn’t you Haddie?). The drama attracted 5 million.

ABC finished third in key demo because of the Dancing With The Stars results show (3.0/8, 15.4 million) and Body of Proof (up 4% from last week to a 2.5/7, and 11.1 million). Fox aired repeats of Glee and Raising Hope, though that was an original of Traffic Light (not that you saw it: it ony posted a .9/2 and 2.2 million). CW also aired reruns.

InsideTV Podcast: Are the judges to blame for Pia's shocking 'American Idol' exit? Plus, we break down the latest on 'Parenthood' and 'Survivor'

Image Credit: Michael Becker/Fox; Frank Micelotta/Fox

The judges said America was to blame for Pia Toscano’s shocking exit last night on American Idol. But I blame someone else: the judges! If they would actually do some critiquing for once instead of heaping praise on every single contestant, maybe they would offer a smidgeon of guidance and direction for the viewers/voters in terms of why they should or should not be voting for someone. And if they are not going to offer that guidance, then why are they even there? I bounce my rage over their happy-go-nicey approach off of Annie Barrett and Kristen Baldwin on the newest edition of the InsideTV Podcast.

Also on tap, Jessica Shaw stops by to help us break down our feelings on Survivor‘s Redemption Island twist. Has it reinvigorated the game, or taken some of the drama out of the show’s biggest watercooler moment — the vote-off? And finally, we’re loving Parenthood, especially the story lines for some of the kids on the show. Which Braverman grandchild are we digging the most and why? (I’ll just go on the record right now and say I’m on Team Max!)

To join in on the fun, just click on the audio player icon below. Or, since we’re on iTunes, you can subscribe for free and take the podcast with you on the go. No iTunes? No problem. You can also download the entire podcast right here. And to send a question to the InsideTV Podcast team, follow us on Twitter @InsideTVPodcast. But first let us know what you think: Was Pia robbed? Do the judges need to step up their actual judging? Is Redemption Island working for you? And which kid on Parenthood is bringing their A game? Hit the message boards and let us know!
