I'm seeing surfers. Pretty surfers. And they're breaking into…. Damn, I lost it.
Ausiello: I'll give you some scoop
Ausiello: Prepare yourself for some serious Stabler drama this season. "We'll be meeting someone in his life who we haven't met before," teases exec producer Neal Baer. "As a result, he'll be dealing with some unexpected problems." Like, perhaps, one very pissed off wifey? That's my guess.
Ausiello: OK, but only because you addressed me by my preferred title. New evidence has turned up in my ongoing investigation into the identity of Ted's future wife on How I Met Your Mother — and it points toward Sarah Chalke being the mysterious mama! (It also ranks as a DEFCON 5 on the spoiler scale, so beware.) A Mother insider reveals that in the show's Sept. 22 season premiere, Stella will
Ausiello: Looks like just one: The season (or
Ausiello: It won't. The show is already in the midst of a planned hiatus and isn't scheduled to resume production until early September. Applegate, meanwhile, is expected to make a full recovery. But don't let that stop you from clicking here and making a big fat donation.
Ausiello: Someone's hiding an autistic relative at home.
Ausiello: A bigger one than first thought. Initial buzz had her only returning for one or two episodes. But now I'm hearing she'll be back for at least four.
Ausiello: Glancing over my notes, it appears I, um, forgot to tell you about the, um, big, fat obstacle standing in the way of a potential Ray/Neela reunion. (Sorry, I didn't want to rain on your "Reela" parade!) Turns out, Ray and his two new bionic legs will be walking straight into another freakin' love triangle! As exec producer Joe Sachs reveals, "Ray comes back to town just as Brenner (David Lyons) starts to make some overtures to Neela." Don't pistol-whip the messen
Ausiello: That's an interesting theory.
Ausiello: I don't want to give away the exact number, so let's just say she's doing two more than Gary Dourdan and seven less than William Petersen.
Ausiello: Liz's stint as a mom may be short-lived. In the season opener, an adoption agency official decides to shadow her at work to see if she's a fit mother. Naturally, the evaluator chooses a day when all hell is breaking lose at The Girlie Show.
Ausiello: I'm seeing a beautiful woman. She's appears to be lying on the ground. She's surrounded by lots of blood. An attractive middle-aged man is running towards her. He looks like… Damn, I lost it.
Ausiello: Nope, and I'm kind of OK with that. I think Blair Waldorf put it best when she told Georgina in the finale: "Haven't you heard? I'm the crazy bitch around here." Speaking of GG, the show is about to start production on an episode shot almost entirely at Yale University. Or at least some corner of Central Park dressed up to look like Yale University. Anyway, the whole gang (i.e. Blair, Serena, Dan, Nate, etc) will be there for their first round of college interviews and to, you know, party like it's 2010.
Ausiello: I have something! Thanks to Monday's Aus Files scoop, you already know that Mad Men's Rich Sommer is guest starring in the Sept. 25 season premiere. Well, what you
Ausiello: Based on what I'm hearing about the premiere, it's either going to go down as the funniest Office episode ever or NBC's most blatant piece of cross-promotion yet. Or some combination of both.
Ausiello: And the streak ends there. A casting notice has gone out for Brennan's newest grad student. In addition to being bright and taciturn, the early twentysomething will be sexy in a blue-collar sort of way (see Jack Slattery, not Dan Connor).
Ausiello: Anne Archer's returning as JLH's mama. That's all I got.
Ausiello: She's back on the set shooting her multi-episode arc as we speak!
Ausiello: What? I don't hate Monk. I hate all the awards Tony Shalhoub wins for Monk, but I don't hate the show itself. I'll even prove it by giving you some exclusive casting scoop: The West Wing's Richard Schiff will play a hypnotist in the Sept. 12 season finale.
