Question: As of today, I have officially seen every single episode of Grey’s Anatomy, and now I don’t know what to do with myself! Grey’s scoop, please! —Bea
Ausiello: Even though nearly two months will have passed since the shooting rampage, Derek will still be in pretty bad shape when the season starts. And I’m not talking physically.
Question: What can you tell us about the Grey’s Anatomy premiere? —Claudia
Ausiello: A major character will be sent directly to jail by the end of the episode. Hint: This person has already been name-checked in this week’s AA.
Question: Do you know if NCIS will deal more with what happened to Ziva in Somalia? —Carlee
Ausiello: Funny you should ask. Exec producer Shane Brennan just told me the following: “In November sweeps, we dip again into a story that perhaps everyone thought was played out. It involves Ziva.” READ FULL STORY
Question: In honor of Neil Patrick Harris being cast in the Smurfs movie, you should give us some big scoop. It’s what the Smurfs would want. —Riina
Ausiello: Actually, I just conducted a straw poll in Smurf Village and turns out what the Smurfs really wanted was me, not NPH. All kidding aside, I really did conduct a poll. And I won. By a landslide. Seriously. Moving on… here’s your big scoop: My magazine column is movin’ on up to the News & Notes section beginning with this week’s issue (on sale Friday). Someone please start a congratulatory thread in the comments section so I don’t have to.
Question: I heard Desperate Housewives is casting a new vixen to replace Nicolette Sheridan. Any idea whom they’re looking at to play her? —Scotty
Ausiello: You’re assuming the role is female. Speaking of Housewives, MAJOR SPOILER ALERT. READ FULL STORY
Question: Happy belated birthday! My gift to you comes in the form of a question: Got any NCIS scoop? —Joel
Ausiello: You shouldn’t have. No. Really. You shouldn’t have. But since you did, I can exclusively confirm that Rena Sofer’s feisty legal eagle — who returns in Tuesday’s episode — will be back for multiple episodes in May and “set in motion a chain of events that forces Gibbs (Mark Harmon) to make a life-changing decision,” reveals exec producer Shane Brennan. And not just any life-changing decision, either. One, he says “that will impact every member of his team.”
Question: I’ll send you some birthday cake if you give me some Supernatural scoop about the 100th episode. —Annie
Ausiello: In the milestone episode, airing April 15, “a very important character will sacrifice themselves in a suicide mission,” reveals exec producer Sera Gamble. “We definitely kept in mind that this was [an important] episode. We wanted to deliver something with real scope; it’s about the Archangel Michael. Crises will come to a head for Dean and Castiel. And you’ll see characters you never thought you’d see again.” Here’s the pan I want you to use for my cake. READ FULL STORY

Question: How about kicking off the New Year with a House scoop? —Christopher
Ausiello: I’m hearing something about a marriage proposal coming in the second half of the season. Also, remember House’s loony bin lay, Lydia? There’s buzz she may get a shout-out in the upcoming episode directed by Hugh Laurie. Let’s hope Cuddy isn’t within earshot!
Question: When Glee returns in April, will the storylines continue as if no time had elapsed, or will it be four months later? —Jenn
Ausiello: It’s not really specified. But football season is over, so you do the math (and get back to me with the results). READ FULL STORY
Planning to watch the premiere of USA Network’s White Collar tonight? Word of advice: Don’t fast-forward through the commercials — particularly if you’re a Bon Jovi fan. At some point during the show’s 72-minute episode (beginning at 10 pm/ET), the network will premiere the “Superman Tonight” track from Bon Jovi’s upcoming album The Circle over a nifty new character brand promo starring such USA MVPs as Jeffrey Donovan, Gabrielle Anwar, James Roday, Dule Hill, and Jeff Goldblum. This just in: An exclusive first look at the nifty spot is after the jump! (But you should still watch the commercials tonight. And then immediately go buy all the products advertised. If you don’t, the TV business may die and no one wants that.) READ FULL STORY

Question: Is it at all possible that Shonda Rhimes would bring Isaiah Washington back to Grey’s Anatomy for even one episode now that T.R. Knight has left the show? —Ben
Ausiello: Listen to me very carefully, because I’m only going to say this once: Never. Gonna. Happen. But Washington kinda-sorta gets a shout-out in this week’s episode when Owen-lovin’ Cristina utters three shocking words: “I miss Burke.”
Question: Sounds like you’ve already seen this week’s Grey’s, so I’ve got a Q: Any good Mer-Der scenes? —Megan
Ausiello: Nothing stands out on the Mer-Der front, but there’s a memorable Mer-Cristina-Alex scene at the end that will have you crying and laughing (and in that order).
Question: Any Grey’s scoop? —Sharon
Ausiello: You already know that someone gets fired in this week’s episode. But what you may not know is that someone gets fired next week, too!
Question: Julie Benz just Twittered a photo of a guy she says will be part of a big reveal in the Dexter season finale. What can you tell us about this? —Matt
Ausiello: Here’s what I can tell you: If this guy is who I think he is, fans are not going to be happy.
Question: Jenny is so boring on Gossip Girl. Please tell me she will become mean. —Juliana
Ausiello: Mean enough to drive her BFF away. I hear Jenny and Eric’s relationship will suffer big time due to her new “Queen Bee” status. READ FULL STORY
I’m kind of loving Psych‘s love of all things ’80s and Brat Packish. The USA comedy has tapped Judd Nelson to guest star in an episode to air this winter. He’ll play a CDC researcher who specializes in a made-up Ebola-like ailment called Thornburg’s disease. In Psych‘s third season finale, Ally Sheedy was outed as the Ying Yang Killer. Who will they recruit next? Demi Moore as Shawn’s quirky aunt older sister? Got a better idea? Post it below!
• Melrose Place: Singer-actress-bombshell Taryn Manning (Sons of Anarchy) will appear in the debut season’s third episode as a singer whose music video is being directed by Jonah. The week before, model-turned-actress Taylor Cole (Summerland) guests as David’s ex-girlfriend.
• Supernatural: The CW serial thriller is adding the recurring role of Raphael, a mechanic who becomes possessed by one of the most powerful beings in the universe. Speaking of powerful beings, I miss Keri Russell.
Wait, there’s more casting scoop after the jump!
• Psych: An American Werewolf in London‘s David Naughton has signed on to guest star in the show’s Halloween-themed episode, co-written by leading man James Roday. He’ll play Dr. Ken Tucker (no connection to EW TV critic extraordinaire), a self-serving sociopath with a plan that Shawn and Gus uncover. Psych‘s fourth season begins Aug. 7.
• Stargate: Universe: Producers are searching for a “name” actress to play the late wife of Robert Carlyle’s Nic Rush. The character will appear via flashback. SGU debuts this fall. Watch a clip here. Or don’t. No sweat off my back.
HawthoRNe: Chuck’s older sis, Sarah Lancaster, is set to moonlight on TNT’s new nurse drama, HawthoRNe, as the girlfriend of a patient (My Boys‘ Reid Scott) who’s horribly injured in a motorcycle accident. Described as a woman who’s never had to face adversity, she finds herself struggling with her newfound fate. So in the name of love (or craziness, you choose) her BF opts to undergo a high-risk surgery that could potentially kill him. Drama!
Psych: James Brolin (a.k.a. Mr. Barbra Streisand) has signed on to appear in a season 4 episode entitled, “High Noon-ish.” He’ll play Hank, a sheriff in Old Sanora, a city which has recently found itself the victim of vandalism. Lassiter (Timothy Omundson) spent a lot of time there growing up and sees Hank as something of a father figure. Psych‘s fourth season kicks off Aug. 7.
Read on for scoops on Melrose Place, Kings, and more!
Crash: Eric Roberts is joining the Starz drama as a series regular. He’s set to play Seth, a billionaire entrepreneur who plans to give L.A. the one thing keeping it from becoming a real city: a professional football team. Crash‘s second season premieres Sept. 18.
Melrose Place: The CW’s upcoming reboot is currently casting the role of Caleb, an extremely masculine gay publicist who works with Katie Cassidy’s Ella. Sources confirm to me exclusively that producers are checking my availability.
Kings: NBC will burn off the seven remaining episodes of its under-appreciated (and now canceled) drama beginning this Saturday and continuing through to its series finale on July 25. I’m told all of the show’s major storylines will be wrapped up by the end. (Additional reporting by David Yi)
Ask Ausiello: Spoilers on 'The Office,' '24,' 'HIMYM,' '90210,' 'Gossip Girl,' 'Psych,' 'One Tree Hill,' and more!
Question: Anything new about The Office finale? –Cindy
Ausiello: The twist ending I’ve been telling you about? Not a single
one of you has come close to guessing what it is.
Question: As the finales air, you should update your Season Finale Scorecard! –Matt
Ausiello: What a great idea. Wish I had thought of that. (Man, I can be a pissy bitch sometimes.)
Question: Just watched the Lost finale and WTFJULIET?! –Margaret
Ausiello: No comment.
Question: News on Tony and the 24 finale? –Aaron
Ausiello: One of the slots in my Season Finale Scorecard is reserved
just for him. Can you guess which one? Speaking of Tony, the evil douche was the topic of conversation at Tuesday’s finale screening in Hollywood.
Kiefer Sutherland admitted that Carlos Bernard wasn’t expecting fans to
hold him personally accountable for his character’s actions. "Two
episodes in he started getting hate mail," he said. "Then he started
getting the hate phone calls. It made him a little nervous." For his
part, Bernard views Tony as a victim. "I don’t perceive Tony as evil.
He’s gone through really traumatic events. He’s a damaged individual.
He’s a guy who doesn’t trust anybody anymore, feels abandoned and feels
he has to take matters into his own hands." Exec producer Jon Cassar urges viewers to reserve judgment until after Monday’s finale.
"I know right now they are kind of upset that he’s bad, but it all kind
of becomes clear in episode 24. We really wanted [the season] to end
with Tony and Jack, and that’s how it’s going to end." Fellow e.p.
Howard Gordon was slightly less apologetic. "If people are disappointed
or don’t like [how Tony's arc is resolved], too bad." (Make that a lot less apologetic.)
Question: Do you know if Janeane Garofalo will be back on 24 next season? I’m kind of digging Janis. –Jason
Ausiello: Sorry to disappoint, but Janis will not be making the trek to New York. "I think the secret of this show is knowing when characters have had their story," explains exec producer Howard Gordon. "And to transpose everybody [from D.C. to New York] starts feeling very coincidental. Even getting Chloe there … you have to explain how she got from Washington to New York and what happened. You can’t do that for everybody."
Question: Any scoop on the 24 finale? –Kristen
"Renee is all over the place in these last two episodes," reveals Annie
Wersching. "I got to do my favorite stunt [of the season] — and they
let me do it myself. It involves hanging off of a car and shooting and
saving someone. It was really cool."
Question: Any scoops on Ugly Betty‘s season finale? –Thiago
Ausiello: Betty makes out with someone, and his name is neither Matt nor Henry. Guesses? Head to the comments section and … eh, forget it. It’s Antonio Sabato Jr.
Question: How about you give Psych some love this week. –Darren
Ausiello: It would be my honor. The Princess Bride‘s Cary Elwes has closed a deal to guest star in a season 4 episode as Pierre Despereaux, a world-class art thief who’s been eluding capture for years.
Question: What does the future hold for Annie and Liam on 90210? –Stephanie
Ausiello: Based on the finale, a straitjacket and an STD, respectively.
Question: What’s the latest on Chuck‘s renewal? –Dave
Ausiello: Warner Bros. and NBC are haggling over money. Shocking, I know. If a deal can be worked out — and I have every reason to believe it can (and will) be — it’ll be back for a 13-episode third season. BTW, renewal and cancellation scoop is best served instantaneously, so now would be a good time to start following me on Twitter. I’m just sayin’.
Question: Please tell me CBS is picking up the NCIS spin-off. I liked it a lot, but leaving a cliffhanger like that for a show that hasn’t officially been picked up is cruel! –Angel
Ausiello: CBS is picking up the NCIS spin-off. Feel better?
Question: Any news about the new season of Entourage? –Bob
Ausiello: Lloyd’s out … as Ari’s punching bag. Producers are auditioning twentysomething actors to play Ari’s new assistant on a recurring basis next season. My guess? Lloyd finally gets promoted to agent. Or, even better, he takes a job at another agency and becomes Ari’s rival!
Question: Could you please give us some juicy scoop on the Gossip Girl finale? It would really make my day. –Kari
Ausiello: One of the cliffhangers involves Georgina … and Dan, and another Blair and Chuck. Actually, the latter is less a cliffhanger and more a itisaboutfreakingtime. (Real word. No lie. Look it up if you don’t believe me!)
Question: Bummed about Chad and Hilarie leaving One Tree Hill. At least tell me Lucas and Peyton get a proper sendoff in Monday’s finale. –Tracey
Ausiello: According to EW’s Jennifer Armstrong, who screened the finale yesterday, Leyton "definitely comes to a natural resting place that feels right for them and ties up their story nicely; however, they do not get an actual sendoff of any kind." Speaking of Chad and Hilarie’s exit, in the very near future I’ll be posting something every Tree Hill fan will want to read. Trust me.
Question: Give me something about the One Tree Hill finale! –Christy
Ausiello: What else you got, Armstrong? "Brooke finally gets two things she’s long wanted, we find out the fate of Peyton and the baby, and Whitey (the retired HS basketball coach) and Karen (Lucas’ mom, played by Moira Kelly) appear." Thanks for ID’ing those last two JA, ’cause I wouldn’t have had a clue who you were talking about. Still don’t, in fact.
Question: Give us scoop on the new characters that will be joining One Tree Hill next season. –Janelle
Ausiello: The three new faces include: Quinn, Haley’s free-spirited, strong-willed older sister; Alexis, a model-actress-crazy bitch in her 20s who Brooke hires to be the new face of her clothing line; and Clayton, a young and brash sports agent who takes on Nathan as a client.
Question: Got any scoop on this Friday’s Ghost Whisperer season finale? –Amanda
Ausiello: Melinda gives birth in the opening minutes, but there’s a twist. (Hint: The new arrival will not be mentioned in my Season Finale Scorecard for a reason.)
Question: The slap bet between Barney and Marshall is one of my favorite storylines on HIMYM. Any chance they will hit us up in the finale? –Sarah
Ausiello: There will be lots of smacking, but not between those two. In related news …
Question: Are we going to see that freaking goat next week on How I Met Your Mother? –John
Ausiello: Yes! "We’re going to learn all about the goat in the season finale," confirms Neil Patrick Harris. "I can’t wait to hear the audience reaction. My only concern is a PETA backlash … [But] no goats were harmed in the making of this TV show." Ted on the other hand …
Question: I hear something big will happen Monday on How I Met Your Mother with regard to the identity of the mother. Will we finally find out who she is? –Stephen
Ausiello: We won’t find out who she is, but we will find out where she is.
Question: I know you said to stop bugging you about the Smallville death, but is there anything you can tell us about the finale? –Kate
Ausiello: Yeah, come straight here after it’s over (on the West Coast).
Question: Please tell me that Dave doesn’t kill MJ on Desperate Housewives. I don’t know if I could handle that. –Alisa
Ausiello: You see, that’s where you and I differ. I’d be perfectly happy with one less
brat kid on that show. Here’s what I’ll say about Mike and Susan’s brat son in Sunday’s episode: I can confirm that the finale includes a cemetery scene. And I can also confirm that brat MJ is in it.
Question: It would make my day extra Smurfy if you could tell me who’s coming back to Desperate Housewives, and if he/she will be back next season. –Jennifer
Ausiello: No one is coming back. That idea, first teased by Marc Cherry last month at PaleyFest ’09, has been scrapped. There’s more to the story, but I’m saving it for my memoirs, due out in 2022 by Penguin ($39.99).
Question: You Twittered that tomorrow’s Prison Break finale brings the show to a satisfying conclusion. My question to you: Will it be satisfying to Michael and Sara fans? –Dina
Ausiello: I know a trick question when I see it. Nice try, Dina.
Question: Will diehard Barney-Robin fans be satisfied with the How I Met Your Mother finale? –Andree
Ausiello: They’ll be ecstatic… hey, you tricked me! No fair!
Question: Do you have any information on the new Melrose Place? –Jeff
Ausiello: Only that the opening sequence is apparently a jaw-dropper — and so top-secret members of the show’s own writing staff haven’t seen it.
