'Grey's Anatomy' Season 10: Isaiah Washington returning as Dr. Burke
EW broke the shocking news on Thursday (March 6) that Washington, who infamously left the ABC series in 2007 following alleged homophobic slurs against his gay co-star T.R. Knight, will reprise his role as Dr. Preston Burke for an episode airing in May. This will be the first episode featuring Burke since he left Cristina Yang (Sandra Oh) at the altar in Season 3.
Executive producer Shonda Rhimes released a statement explaining that Burke's return is a necessary part of providing closure to Cristina as Oh is leaving the show at the end of Season 10. "It's important to me that Cristina's journey unfolds exactly as it should," Rhimes says. "Burke is vital to that journey -- he gives her story that full-circle moment we need to properly say goodbye to our beloved Cristina Yang."

'Review with Forrest MacNeil': Stealing, addiction and other parts of life
First a disclaimer on this review of "Review with Forrest MacNeil": I literally had zero idea of what this show was about before turning it on. Fortunately, the main plot became clear immediately, thanks to a rather explicit explanation from host Forrest MacNeil.
Simply put (as he puts it), "Review" consists of MacNeil reviewing stuff. This means everything in life, although MacNeil seems particularly drawn to rather bad things. For example, the first episode reviews stealing, addiction and going to a high school prom.
Thus, here are some reviews of MacNeil's reviews:
Stealing: The nerdy host increases the levels of his crimes quickly but fails to benefit particularly from any of them. His bank robbery is actually nothing but failure. In the end, MacNeil goes with 2 stars for the experience of theft.
My review: 1 star. MacNeil did not adequately show just how lucrative stealing can be. Better luck next time. »
'Believe': Watch the Alfonso Cuaron-directed opening scene of NBC's new series
Above, you can watch the first two minutes of Monday's (March 10) series premiere, and it's an impressive one. You won't discern much about the story -- other than that little girl Bo (Johnny Sequoyah) is special, and bad people are after her -- but it's easy to marvel at the craft of the scene, which at least appears to be one unbroken take.
Cuaron also co-wrote the pilot and serves as one of the show's executive producers. "Believe" premieres at 10 p.m. Et/Pt Monday following "The Voice," then moves to its regular home at 9 p.m. Sundays starting March 16. »
'Bones' Season 9 photos: Meet Brennan's new squintern, Rodolfo Fuentes
As is so often the case when she meets a new assistant, Brennan (Emily Deschanel) isn't exactly thrilled to meet Rodolfo.
He does, however, have a lot of expertise. That should be helpful when dealing with bones coming out of a septic tank.
But will Rodolfo be able to handle Brennan's typically dismissive attitude? He is, after all, her equal in many credentials.
Maybe the new squintern can prove his worth to the others -- Brennan does listen to them.
"The Repo Man in the Septic Tank" episode of "Bones" airs Monday, March 17 at 8 p.m. Et/Pt on Fox. »
'Clone Wars' director: Final episodes answer big 'Star Wars' questions
Today Netflix unveils the final 13 unaired episodes of The Clone Wars animated series, along with all five previous seasons, marking the first Star Wars title to be released on the streaming service.

'Grey's Anatomy' Season 10, episode 14: For a hospital that banned relationships, there sure are a lot of relationships
We all knew the new rule on "Grey's Anatomy" wouldn't last.
Last Thursday, the board of Grey Sloan Memorial instated a rule banning all inter-hospital relationships, excluding already married couples. But did you think that rule would fall apart immediately? Because it sure did, on Thursday's (March 6) episode, "You've Got To Hide Your Love Away."
Not only did unmarried-but-still-together couple Alex and Jo continue to see each other (first trying a fake breakup and sneaking around until they were caught in a closet by Webber), but the head of the hospital, Owen, hooked up with Yang!
That's right, not only did the person supposed to upholding the new rule hypocritically break it, but he broke it by cheating on his girlfriend and reigniting the spark with his ex. Wowza. And the cherry on top? He realized he doesn't want kids after all. He wants to come home at the end »
'American Idol' eliminated singer Emily Piriz: 'Idol' was like an alternate universe
Even if the "American Idol" thing didn't work out, Emily Piriz had a backup plan: college. But even though she was eliminated in 12th place on the show's 13th season, she still plans to give music a go. In fact, she and fellow finalist Jena Irene are planning to move out to Los Angeles together this summer -- once they both graduate from high school.
"I'm a senior," Piriz tells Zap2it and a small group of reporters backstage after the Top 12 elimination show. "I'm just gonna go back home ... go back to school and graduate. Me and Jena were actually talking that we want to move out to [Hollywood] together this summer."
The original plan was to go to the University of North Florida and room with her high school friend, so having the whole "Idol" experience is like living in another reality. "It's weird going through that whole college search, »
‘Grace’ Horror Series Underway at HBO Asia
Hong Kong — HBO Asia is to kick off its second original production with “Grace,” a contemporary horror mini-series.
Production begins next week in association with Singapore-based producer Infocus Asia and with the financial support of Singapore’s Media Development Authority.
The four-part hour-long horror mini-series in English and Mandarin is about a father’s mistake which condemns his family to unspeakable horror. Set in present day urban Asia, “Grace” examines the Asian concepts of family, sacrifice and vengeance.
It will be directed by Tony Tilse, who co-directed 10-part 1960s detective series “Serangoon Road,” which last year was HBO Asia’s first venture into long-format fiction production. “Serangoon Road” aired across HBO’s pan-Asia footprint from September last year.
“Grace” will star “Serangoon Road” talent Russell Wong (pictured, right) as a loving father but unfaithful husband, and Pamelyn Chee (pictured, left) as his mistress. Constance Song, Jean Toh and Vivienne Tseng also star, »

'The Big Bang Theory' Season 7, episode 17: Penny faces reality in 'The Friendship Turbulence'
From episode to episode, a lot of chatter surrounding "The Big Bang Theory" this season -- the show's seventh -- has been focused on the emotional journey of Jim Parsons' Sheldon Cooper, as the show has been quite remarkably intent on challenging the character to grow and mature. The attention the storyline is receiving is entirely justified, as it's rare for a show like this to allow its central character to continue to evolve this late in its run.
But in all that, another surprising emotional journey has gotten a bit overlooked. I'm talking, of course, about Penny (Kaley Cuoco-Sweeting). This season has seen the aspiring actress take stock of her professional situation, go for broke by quitting her job as a waitress and devote all of her time and energy on landing that breakthrough role.
In Thursday's (March 6) episode, reality has begun to sink in for Penny. Having »

'Vikings' Season 2, episode 2 recap: 'Invasion' comes with a huge time jump
After all that went down in the Season 2 premiere of "Vikings" last week, it's a bit surprising that episode 2 starts off with a four-year time jump. Now, Aslaug and Ragnar are still together, with yet another child on the way.
Still, even with a new family, Ragnar yearns for his first-born son, Bjorn. It looks like he never came back after leaving with Lagertha, though can you really blame him? Don't count him out just yet, though. Ragnar wouldn't be to focused on it if he weren't coming back.
One thing the time jump helps is that the raiding ships are now finished. That means King Horik and Jarl Borg can lead their parties to the west to find new land. That is, until Horik decides Borg isn't someone he trusts enough to bring along. He lets Ragnar break that news, leaving a very unhappy Borg.

'The Vampire Diaries' Season 5, episode 15 recap: Um ... where did Katherine go?!
Uhhhhh ... guys? Where did Katherine just go?!
Instead of going gentle into that good night (which she didn't plan on doing anyway), the 500-year-old vampire was sucked into some dark vortex on Thursday (March 6) night's episode of "The Vampire Diaries." Yeah, not only is Katherine -- the best character on "Tvd," hands freakin' down -- dead, she's gone permanently. There is no second chance, no plan B, no loophole, no coming back from the dead or playing Passenger in someone's mind. Katherine is gone, ripped from this world, and sent ... not to The Other Side, but some kind of hell, according to executive producer Caroline Dries.
The introduction of this darker Other Side -- let's call it The Dark Side, for consistency's sake -- is interesting to say the least. It opens the door to so many new questions. First of all, why is Katherine the first person we've seen »
'Archer' renewed for Seasons 6 and 7 on FX
"'Archer' is one of the best comedies on television and has played a significant role in the growth of the FX comedy brand," FX president of original programming Eric Schrier says in a statement from the network. "We're grateful to [producers] Adam Reed, Matt Thompson and their team at Floyd County [Productions], and also our incredible voice cast, and are looking forward to supporting their work for at least two more seasons."
Reed, who created the animated series about an inept spy, comments, "I am figuratively over the moon."
Grey's Anatomy Recap: "You've Got to Hide Your Love Away"
The new rule at Grey Sloan causes quite a bit of drama during Thursday's Grey's Anatomy, mostly because no one is following it, especially those who put it into action.
Not long after Owen announces the new rule to the staff, Alex and Jo publicly break up. But their feud is just a ruse so they can continue dating without their co-workers finding out the truth. That, of course, doesn't last long when...

'Suits' postmortem: Creator Aaron Korsh on Harvey's relationship, Louis' 'black hawk down'
Entertainment Weekly: Let’s start with Jessica asking Scottie, who’s now in a relationship with Harvey and joining the firm, to pay her six-figure buy-in upfront instead of after the typical trial period.
Aaron Korsh: We wanted to shine a light on the fact that the name of the firm had changed quite a bit: It went from Pearson Hardman, to Pearson, to Pearson Darby, to Pearson Darby Specter, to Pearson Specter. »

'Suits' Season 3 midseason premiere: Mixing business with romance and 'Buried Secrets'
"Suits" is back!
The midseason premiere of the legal drama is as good as ever in "Buried Secrets," with witty dialogue, legal maneuvering and dangerous secrets. Will Louis find out Mike's secret? Can either Mike's or Harvey's relationships survive? Is Michael Phelps going to stick with Pearson Specter?
Harvey is better at manipulation than romance
Not that Harvey practices much law in "Buried Secrets." He is far too busy having sex with Scottie and trying to negotiate/manipulate her contract. With the British merger dead, Scottie needs a job. And Harvey wants a girlfriend.
The two might go together, but Jessica is wary of Harvey actually sticking with one woman. She agrees to hire Scottie as a partner -- on the condition that she buy-in to the firm immediately instead of six months later.
Harvey works multiple angles to have this requirement lifted -- he even gets Scottie to land »
