The younger Gibbs will be played by Sean Harmon, Mark's own son, and the younger version of Joann will be portrayed by 'Days of Our Lives'' Emmy-winner Leann Hunley.
Hunley (pictured), who plays Anna DiMera on 'Days of Our Lives,' told Logan that she was thrilled to play Joann in flashback, especially because of her admiration for Rowlands. "When I first saw her back in the '70s in 'A Woman Under the Influence,' I thought, 'That woman looks like me! She has my eyes!'" Hunley told Logan.
Well, after Betty's on-again, off-again thing with Matt turned into a very much an "on" thing -- and a clingy one at that -- last week saw Matt making a decision that definitely puts the romance on hold.
What's next for Betty? Apparently one of the Mad Men. In March, Mad Men actor Rich Sommer will appear on Ugly Betty in a guest role. He'll be playing a Seth Rogen type -- that's code for schlubby, nice guy -- who asks Betty out.
The episode, "No Mas," means "No More" in Spanish and it will be interesting to see how creator Vince Gilligan picks up the threads from the Season Two finale. For fans of the show, that means we're finally going to know what's happened to Walter during and after the plane crash. That's just an assumption because when it comes to Breaking Bad, you're never truly sure what's going to happen next.
When NBC did its upfront -- it wasn't really like the other networks, because they had leaked so much information -- one of the things the powers that be decided to do was split the season into two sections. Or two official seasons. It all seemed a bit strange, and now that NBC has gotten off to such a dreadful start, things are changing. One change seems to be that Chuck may be back before March.
Finally, I need wait no more: The CW has finally announced Reaper's timeslot, and it's not half bad. Or, I guess it is half bad, depending on how you look at it.
First things first: it's not on Friday night, which is something I feared because CW's schedule is so wide open on that night. So that's good, right?
Apparently, fudging his resume wasn't quite the high crime and misdemeanor it was made out to be. In fact, the network's dramatic reversal is proof positive that Dinner: Impossible has not been the same show with Chef Robert.
It's easier to forgive Irvine for padding his credits -- including facts like cooking for the Queen and preparing meals at the White House -- than it was to find as charismatic a star to anchor the weekly show.
I really wanted to like this show, but I couldn't even make it through the first episode. Although, to be honest, the only thing that made me want to check it out was knowing that Penn Jillette was hosting it. I've been a fan of Jillette's for years, both solo and as one-half of Penn and Teller, but watching Identity was like listening to paint dry -- not watching paint dry, listening to it dry, which is much more boring.
Since networks don't make decisions based on my personal preferences, Identity will be returning to NBC Fridays in March. The first new episode will air at 9:00 p.m. on March 16, and will then slide into its regular timeslot beginning March 23 at 8:00 p.m.
Okay readers, should I have given the show more of a chance? Is it actually better than I thought it was? I'll admit I might not have been in the right mood when I watched it. Perhaps I had just been shot down by a girl at the bar, or maybe I ate some bad ham. If you think it deserves a second look, here's your chance to convince me.
Jonathan, our resident Aqua Teen Hunger Force reviewer, mentioned that last season's finale aired in the inexplicable timeslot of 3:30 a.m. on December 22. if you missed it, and undoubtedly many of you did, the episode will air again on March 11 at 10:30 p.m., according to the Adult Swim schedule grid.
Given the original timeslot this aired in and the fact that this "new" episode (the grid lists it as a "premiere") is tossed in among a bunch of Aqua Teen repeats, it almost feels as if Adult Swim doesn't want people to see this episode. I don't actually believe that, but criminy, they're not making it easy for us fans to catch it. If I have one major pet peeve about the way Adult Swim operates it's that it makes it nearly impossible to find information and news about its programming. I have to hire retired FBI agents and Navy Seals just to bring readers these small snippets of info. Believe me, you can only pay these men in Hostess products for so long before they leave for better work. It's not a perfect system, but I do what I can.
It's almost time to warm up the barbecue, invite your friends over, open a few beers, and then tell everyone to get the hell out of your house so you can watch South Park. That's right, the eleventh season of the show kicks off March 7 at 10:00pm on Comedy Central.
I'm ninety-nine percent sure I'll be reviewing the episodes again, since I know a lot of you love to talk about the show. South Park has never been timid in its satire, but last season it really gave a beat down to Al Gore; 9/11 conspiracy theories; Oprah and James Frey; censorship through intimidation; science vs. religion; and Scientology (again). I think season ten marked some of the best episodes of the series so far, and I can't wait to see what Matt and Trey have on tap for season eleven.

- I'm betting people didn't realize what they were in for when they signed up for this one. Willing participants are disguised and then they set out to talk about themselves to find out what their family and friends really think about them. I'm guessing they get their feelings hurt, otherwise where's the entertainment?
