'Criminal Minds' star Thomas Gibson has working on some interesting projects lately. He guest-starred on the 'Two and a Half Men' premiere in a sort-of-but-not-really 'Dharma & Greg' reunion, and in his spare time, he's been tweeting pictures of his co-stars' feet.

Gibson tried to tell the ladies of 'The Talk' (weekdays, 7AM on CBS) that doesn't have a foot fetish, but they weren't really buying it. "Everybody thinks I do, but I swear I don't, although I might be developing one now," he pleaded.

One of the foot pictures he tweeted belonged to a 'Criminal Minds' cadaver, which grossed out Sara Gilbert. Gibson assured her that it wasn't actually the foot of dead man, a development that makes him only slightly less weird.

'Modern Family' co-creator Steve Levitan took to Twitter to share his joy about the ratings news.

"It's extremely gratifying that a scripted comedy finally beat an overhyped karaoke contest," he said. "Thank you, #ModernFamily fans!"

Criminal Minds Season 7 Thomas GibsonNow that the BAU gang is back together on 'Criminal Minds' and suddenly everything old is new again, the show is "re-energized," series star Thomas Gibson said in an interview with AOL TV.

Season 6 ended with Gibson's character Hotch helping "bury" Prentiss (Paget Brewster). However, she's still very alive -- something the team isn't aware of -- and Brewster and A.J. Cook will rejoin the cast full-time for Season 7 (Wed., Sept. 21, 9PM ET on CBS). All that deception comes back to bite Hotch, Gibson said.

"The sh-- sort of hits the fan because they're back in some ways," Gibson said about Brewster and Cook's return to the series. "Paget, as far as the rest of the team is concerned, we had lost her. There's some good stuff to play as a result of everybody getting back together, which is cool."

It wasn't just the fans who are excited to have Brewster and Cook back on the show -- Gibson said the cast is psyched too.

"It feels like a family reunion -- everybody is in the right place," Gibson said.

'Criminal Minds' Star Thomas Gibson Still Hasn't Renewed His Contract for Season 7

by Catherine Lawson, posted Jun 6th 2011 7:50AM
'Criminal Minds' has had more than its fair share of drama off-screen in the last year or so. Cast members have been demoted, or promoted then axed, or fired and then rehired. Now comes news that star Thomas Gibson is still between contracts.

According to Deadline.com negotiations have stalled between Gibson and CBS with only one month to go before production gets underway on the upcoming Season 7. While he is expected to sign a new deal to stay with the show the uncertainty is making life hard for the writers.

They have already started to map out next season and write scripts. Gibson's character, Supervisory Special Agent Aaron Hotchner, has been key to the show's storylines, so it would be hard to plot the season without knowing if he will be back.

Person of InterestIt's CBS's turn to shake things up with its fall schedule, which the network just announced this morning.

'CSI' is finally getting the boot from its longtime Thursday night time slot in favor of the J.J. Abrams-produced 'Person of Interest,' while 'The Good Wife' is getting transferred from Tuesdays at 10PM to the highly competitive Sundays at 9PM slot.

The network's two new comedies will both get their shots after established shows, with '2 Broke Girls' airing after 'How I Met Your Mother' on Mondays and 'How to Be a Gentleman' landing post-'Big Bang Theory' on Thursdays. Interestingly, 'Rules of Engagement' is being pushed to Saturday nights.

CBS is saving the Robert De Niro-produced cop drama 'The 2-2' for mid-season (hopefully with a better name).

The full fall schedule is after the jump.
