Fall TV Preview

TVLine Items: Idol's Pia Toscano Sings on Dance, First Look at CSI Ted Danson, and More

Pia Toscano is headed back to Fox to dominate the stage once more. The American Idol castoff is set to perform her new single, “This Time,” on So You Think You Can Dance‘s Aug. 4 results show. Prior to that, Christina Applegate (star of the new NBC comedy Up All Night) will guest-judge the same week’s performance episode.

Ready for more of today’s TV dish? Well…

• You’ve no doubt heard that Ted Danson has been cast as Laurence Fishburne’s replacement on CBS’ CSI this fall (premiering Wednesday, Sept. 21). TV Guide Magazine now has a first look at the Emmy winner’s big debut. Check it out here.

• Eliza Dushku sexes up USA Network’s White Collar this coming Tuesday, and The Hollywood Reporter has a preview of the frothy fun. Take a peek here, and sound off below of just how sizzling she and Matt Bomer are onscreen together.

• Also on White Collar: Tom Skerritt will guest in a January episode as Elizabeth’s (Tiffani Thiessen) overprotective father, per TVGuide.com. Bailey Chase (Damages) appears in the same episode as a VP at Sara’s insurance firm who is suspected of stealing a Stradivarius.

Hellcats frontwoman Aly Michalka will guest-star on the Sept. 30 installment of CBS’ CSI: NY as a rocker chick involved in a murder, EW.com reports.

• Friend of TVLine Danny Pudi has tweeted a bit of goodness from the set of NBC’s Community, noting that it was a “great day at school.” Recognize the man to his right? It’s none other than Greendale’s “intense” new professor, played by Michael Kenneth Williams (The Wire, Boardwalk Empire).

Which TVLine Items have you talking today?

  • OMG! I think I’m a little sick of seeing Pia popping up to sing on these dance shows. Maybe it’s just me. I hope it’s not a ballad.

  • I’m looking forward to Danson. I hope he brings a bit of Becker with him. As for Pia, I don’t watch SYTYCD, so that’s fine. As long as I don’t have to see or hear her, more power to her.

  • See the photo of Ted Danson in CSI gives me the same as seeing a photo of Lawrence Fishburne: a terrible disappointment.

  • She didn’t get the hint when she was voted off AI?

  • Eliza in White Collar = HOT! A lot of people hope they have her back. They look great together.

    White Collar has had lots of good guest stars this year.

  • Aly Milchaka better savor that part, because only in a fictional world will she ever be a rocker.

  • YAY! Pia has a single! You’re great Pia, don’t listen to this haters, they’re jelous ;)
    Anyway, I really don’t like Danson, but I hope he is better than Fishburn.

  • So sick of Pia being shoved down our throats! She’s a major bore with a weird hairline. Aly Michalka has the most annoying face ever.

  • Amazing, IDOL has never promoted a winner as much as this AI loser has seen. Her publicity agent is worth his weight in gold.
