    Annie Wersching played a doctor on Castle..the fearsome Dr. Kelly Nieman who wanted to take off Beckett’s face and make it her own.

  2. Paige says:

    Love Jon Cryer in his role as Dr. Taft. Happy to see him back and hope he sticks around.

  3. Tom says:

    Something about this smells spinoff-y to me. Which I would be all for. Imagine an NCIS Medical spinoff starring Jon Cryer and Laura San Giacomo. They could even have Scottie Thompson star. This must be a setup for a backdoor pilot.

  4. Jared Munson says:

    I’m thinking with David saying he might come back for one more year, it might set up Jon Cryer coming full time and becoming an ME. Maybe.

  5. Sam says:

    How long till CBS announces a spinoff with Jon Cryer? This is happening.

  6. Mr. Tran K says:

    Very happy that Celebrity Name Game is back for Season 3 and Craig Ferguson has done an amazing job in his already post Late Late Show gig. In my opinion, Ferguson is the most hilarious game show host than his “friend” Drew Carey on The Price is Right.

  7. Lauren says:

    I’ve been catching up with Crazy Ex-Girlfriend this week and loving it! It’s so funny but heartbreaking.

  8. Have (or) will we ever know how the boat’s got out of the basement

  9. Craig Baydor says:

    All I see is the loser Alan character from two and a half men. Jon Cryer’s arrogance lends nothing positive to NCIS. I have had to resort to taping the show so I can fast forward past his appearances. I hope he becomes a casualty soon.
