Criminal Minds Sneak Peek: Jj's Mom Spills a Dark Family Secret

5 November 2014 6:00 AM, PST | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Tonight on Criminal Minds (CBS, 9/8c), Jj’s mother Sandy pays a visit, and in doing so unpacks a bit of family baggage as well.

As seen in this sneak peek, Sandy (returning guest star Candy Clark) gives grandson Henry the 411 on his Aunt Rosaline, short of revealing exactly how it is that she wound up in a “better place.”

When Jj (A.J. Cook) gets wind of the bombshell Mom dropped, she has plenty to say. Or is she in part still in denial about her teenage sister’s suicide? Press play above, then render your verdict.

Criminal Minds: Season 10 Ratings

10 October 2014 3:19 PM, PDT | TVSeriesFinale.com | See recent TVSeriesFinale news »

One of many crime procedurals on CBS, Criminal Minds has been around for a long time. It's never garnered a lot of attention and the ratings have declined but it's still a pretty consistent player for the network. Is that enough to keep it on the air? Will it be cancelled or renewed for an 11th year? Stay tuned.

Criminal Minds continues to follow the FBI's Behavioral Analysis Unit (Bau) out of Quantico. This season's cast is Thomas Gibson, Shemar Moore, A.J. Cook, Matthew Gray Gubler, Kirsten Vangsness, Joe Mantegna, and Jennifer Love Hewitt.

The ratings are typically the best indication of a show's likelihood of staying on the air. The higher the ratings (particularly the 18-49 demo), the better the chances for survival. This chart will be updated as new ratings data becomes available -- usually the next day, around 11:30am Est/8:30am Pst. Refresh »

Wer Review

24 August 2014 3:05 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

A “found footage” horror movie about werewolves? From the guys behind The Devil InsideBear with me, I promise there’s a light at the end of this topsy-turvy tunnel.

Where The Exorcism Of Emily Rose attempts to weigh demonic possession against mental illness, Wer calls upon the same judicial storytelling by putting a suspected werewolf on trial in hopes of proving innocence through physical ailments. Playing out like a faux-documentary, most of the film is spent watching a sassy lawyer defender her furry client, condemning a case riddled with inconsequential evidence that only the worst investigation could slum together, but a shockingly invigorated third act changes at the rising of a full moon. Writer/Director William Brent Bell and co-writer Matthew Peterman’s previous film, The Devil Inside, crumbles under the weight of vapid storytelling and an absolutely insulting ending, but these rejuvenated artists refuse to wander the same joyless road a second time. »

Still buzzing about the first part of the Criminal Minds season 9 finale? Well, the wait is almost over, and CBS has released a promo teasing what's next for the Bau. Plus, I have a couple more teases from series star A.J. Cook from a recent interview.

'Criminal Minds' Exclusive: A.J. Cook Says 'Sad Secret' to Be Revealed on Season 9 Finale

9 May 2014 6:58 AM, PDT | buddytv.com | See recent BuddyTV news »

Criminal Minds fans, have you calmed down after the first part of the season 9 finale yet? No? It's okay. I'm with you, which is why I jumped at the chance to hop on the phone with series star A.J. Cook to find out what's coming up in "Demons" next week.

This week, "Angels" brought the team to Texas to investigate prostitute murders, but as they learned, nothing was as it seemed. By the end of the episode, they were involved in a shootout that left two of the team injured. However, based on what the actress had to say, that's just the beginning and we haven't seen anything yet. »

'Criminal Minds' A.J. Cook 'not afraid' to use her life for Jj's

19 February 2014 12:30 PM, PST | Zap2It - From Inside the Box | See recent Zap2It - From Inside the Box news »

Zap2it: Your history with "Criminal Minds" has factored into your character Jj's history in an ever greater way. What's your take on that?

A.J. Cook: Our writers are really good at tapping into what's going on. They're not afraid to write what's really happening, and that's always how we've kind of done it ... with Mandy [Patinkin] leaving, then me leaving and other characters coming on, and the whole thing with Paget [Brewster, who left, then returned and then left again).

That whole monologue I gave in the episode where I left in Season 6, that was my voice and [the writers'] voice, and it really resonated with the audience. I think that's what's so lovely about our show, that we're not afraid to speak our truth and use our lives for our characters.

Zap2it: Since the year you were off the show has played into developing Jj's back story this season, are you satisfied with how things have evolved over »

'Criminal Minds' 200th episode: Jj's missing years revealed in intense, torture-heavy episode

5 February 2014 8:45 PM, PST | Zap2It - From Inside the Box | See recent Zap2It - From Inside the Box news »

During its 200th episode on Wednesday (Feb. 5), "Criminal Minds" finally shed some light on just what Jj (A.J. Cook) was up to during her time away from the Bau with the State Department.

Responding to the profiler's kidnapping at the end of the last episode, the team jumped into action, learning that her disappearance was related to her secret mission while she was away. Turns out Jj was on assignment in Afghanistan to find Osama bin Laden, which is where she met Cruz (Esai Morales).

The show spent some time trying to convince us that Cruz was the mole in Jj's Afghani team, informing us that he never put his name in for Section Chief, but in the end, that wasn't the case. Askari (Faran Tahir), the team's translator, is revealed early on as the person torturing both Jj and Cruz, but eventually Hastings (Tahmoh Penikett), the team's fourth member, »

The things actors do for their craft.

A.J. Cook revealed that during filming of the big 200th episode of "Criminal Minds," she was waterboarded ... for real, not pretend. 

"I was chained up for two days," Cook says on CBS' "The Talk" on Wednesday (Feb. 5). "They waterboarded me. For real. No joke. I don't know any other actor that would have allowed them to do that. I'm so dumb."

‘Criminal Minds’: 200th Episode Spills Secrets About Jj’s Missing Year

5 February 2014 11:53 AM, PST | HollywoodLife | See recent HollywoodLife news »

Plus, executive producer Erica Messer tells HollywoodLife.com to expect a huge moment from Prentiss’ return.

Feb. 5 is going to be a huge night for CBS’ Criminal Minds – and not just because the procedural smash is airing its 200th episode. The milestone hour features the return of fan-favorite character Emily Prentiss (Paget Brewster), as well as some surprising revelations about Jj (A.J. Cook), and executive producer Erica Messer tells HollywoodLife.com there are plenty of blanks to be filled.

“The episode specifically focuses on the season that [Jj] wasn’t with us,” Erica explains. “When we wrote her out in Season 6, it was with the idea that she was being promoted to a higher position in the State Department. Then she came back at the end of Season 6, and she’s been with us ever since. So it seemed like a good time to ask, ‘What happened to Jj in that missing year? »

'Criminal Minds' 200th episode: Paget Brewster, Joe Mantegna reunite to find A.J. Cook

5 February 2014 10:00 AM, PST | Zap2It - From Inside the Box | See recent Zap2It - From Inside the Box news »

As "Criminal Minds" hits episode No. 200, a lot of bizarre cases are in the CBS show's rearview mirror.

The milestone telecast Wednesday, Feb. 5, is more like "a little mini-movie," according to series regular A.J. Cook. She should know: Her character, FBI Behavioral Analysis Unit agent Jennifer "Jj" Jareau, is at its center. Jj's kidnapping prompts team leader David Rossi (Joe Mantegna) and her other colleagues to probe the year she worked for the State Department - which coincided with the season Cook was off the show - and the investigation involves familiar faces.

One is former co-star Paget Brewster, back as Bau alum Emily Prentiss. Another, likely a surprise for fans, is Jayne Atkinson as now-deceased ex-Section Chief Erin Strauss ... but much of the tale is told through flashbacks. Esai Morales also returns in his recurring role as Strauss' successor, Mateo "Mat" Cruz, who knows Jj very well from her State Department stint. »
