'Parenthood' scoop: EP Jason Katims previews Adam and Kristina trouble, Sarah's ex drama, and hope for Crosby and Jasmine

This season of Parenthood has decidedly taken the Bravermans into uncharted — and slightly darker — territory. Sarah (Lauren Graham) is struggling to help her ex-husband Seth (John Corbitt) sober up, Adam (Peter Krause) and Kristina (Monica Potter) have a new baby and no money, Julia (Erika Christensen) has hit more than a few snags on her quest for another child with Joel (Sam Jaeger), and Crosby (Dax Shepard) is looking for any way he can to stay afloat. And that’s just the adults.

Well, as the show moves into November sweeps (a critical month for television shows), things are only going to get tougher for the gang. In a chat with EW, executive producer Jason Katims previewed the trials and tribulations on the way. [Steer clear, SPOILER phobes!] READ FULL STORY

‘GOSSIP GIRL': EP TALKS MORE ON ‘SLEEP NO MORE,’
How much did you love this news? I was so excited I even circled Nov. 14 in my calendar and drew a creepy mask by the date to remind myself. But in case you need even more reasons to be excited about the impending romantic entanglements in this very special episode, executive producer Josh Safran told me that much “like masked balls in the past, there are multiple kisses — between multiple people” in the episode. “Like, quadratic couples, I’d say,” he teases. Could that have something to do with the “big kiss” everyone has been asking me about? Possibly… READ FULL STORY

'Parenthood': Cee-Lo stops by Adam and Crosby's studio -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO

Parenthood is getting an extra injection of awesome this week as Cee-Lo stops by for a guest appearance.

In this exclusive first look at his appearance, Cee-Lo is seen touring Adam and Crosby’s (not exactly complete) studio. But despite its rough appearance, Adam wins the mega-star over by explaining the studio was once used by Janis Joplin. The only problem? Crosby seems less than thrilled with Cee-Lo’s ambitious goals.

'Last Man Standing' opens well, 'Parenthood' grows

All those pop-up promos of Tim Allen seemed to work for ABC: Two back-to-back original episodes of Last Man Standing on Tuesday earned a 3.5 rating/9 share — up 9% from the premiere of No Ordinary Family last season, according to early results. The block averaged 12.9 million viewers.

Dancing with the Stars also saw a boost. The results show that sent Chynna Phillips packing earned a 3.2/8 — up 10% from last week. (Each 18-49 ratings point equals 1.3 million).. It averaged 16.6 million. Body of Proof, however, wasn’t so lucky. It notched a  1.9/5, down 5%, and 9.3 million viewers . READ FULL STORY

System failing. Too much TV. Abort! Abort!

Anyone else feeling a little overwhelmed by all the amazing television this week? Well, buck up, sissy pants! Fall TV is not for the weak. It’s for the bravest, strongest, most wonderfully reclusive individuals. Together we will conquer.

That said, I need your help. Be sure you’re sending in your scoop requests, sharing your TV ponderings, and telling me your general shows of interest so I can make sure I’m filling your need for scoops during this hectic TV time. (Send e-mails to spoilerroom@ew.com or follow me on Twitter: @EWSandraG) Until next week!

(Side note: In case you missed it, we also had a special Emmy scoops edition earlier this week that you can read here.)

DEXTER REVISITS THE PAST IN AWESOME PREMIERE

Last season of Dexter ended with the door open for anything to happen. Lumen lost her darkness and left, Dexter had taken down the season’s villain, and there was even a small note of optimism on his part that he could one day live without his own darkness following him.

On Oct. 2, we pick up with Harrison starting pre-school and Dexter very much at peace with his darkness. And, dare I say, enjoying it again.

Without ruining too much (because I honestly felt incredibly psyched by the premiere and want you to experience it for yourself), much of the episode centers around Dexter tracking down a potential victim at his 20th high school reunion. There, we not only get a great picture of who Dexter was as a high school student, but also get a good laugh out how his classmates perceive him now. (He’s… popular!)

We’re also introduced to Colin Hanks and Edward James Olmos’ demented characters. I can happily report that the first murder they are responsible for is one of the most disgusting ones I’ve ever seen on the show. Congrats, newbies! READ FULL STORY

'Glee,' 'Modern Family,' 'Parenthood,' and more TV scoop in the Spoiler Room Emmys Edition

And the winner is…ALL OF US.

As I teased on my Twitter account last night, the EW Army was out in full force this weekend gathering TV scoop from all the good-looking stars walking around, and as a result, we all walk away feeling like winners. (So this is what it feels like to be Kyle Chandler!) So enjoy yourself as you dig into some scooplets in this special edition of Spoiler Room, and if you missed any of EW’s Emmy coverage this weekend, educate yourself.

And make sure to come back on Friday for your regularly scheduled edition of Spoiler Room (in its normal format). That reminds me! I’m still accepting your questions via e-mail: spoilerroom@ew.com.

GLEE-MERGENY!*
Sure, the kids from Glee know how to work a carpet, but show me the woman with the scoop and I’ll show you the person I want to talk to. For EW, that was Dot Marie Jones, who we caught up with on Saturday night at the Performers Nominee Reception at Spectra by Wolfgang Puck. Jones, who, like a trooper, came out for the festivities despite her broken foot, dished that her injury is actually being worked into the show. “Yeah, Ryan [Murphy], the boys, wrote it into the third episode that I broke my foot,” she said. “I don’t want to say how they wrote it in because it’s very funny.” 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

'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.

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!

'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.”

Anyone else hungry for season 3? 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

'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!)
