Primetime Spoiler Round-Up!

GREEK I’m just crazy about these kids at Cyprus Rhodes. They’ve been picked up for a third season but their friends at Kyle XY got the AX. GREEK returns with the second half of the second season on March 30th with Max! Casey’s boyfriend has ditched grad school in favor of sticking in Ohio with Casey. Will he constantly remind his girlfriend what he’s given up for her? The craziest GREEK news comes from an exclusive on EW.com courtesy of Mr. Michael Ausiello. Apparently the third season will be light one cast member. Frannie, the rogue ZBZ, will not be a series regular. She’s in a pretty major storyline as the season finale cliffhanger was Frannie setting up a new sorority and taking a bunch of ZBZ’s with her. With Frannie leaving campus, what does that mean for Evan? Will we get a Casey-Evan reunion? What about Casey and Cappie? Will they ever get back together? SPOILERS say Casey and Cappie spend time together when Max is away. All MY Children fans, well Jesse McCartney fans, remember the heartthrob is also slated to appear this season on GREEK.

I’m adding a new show to the Round-Up. Army Wives is a great show on Lifetime from the same folks that gave us Grey’s Anatomy. If you haven’t seen it, check it out. They are adding two new African American cast members to the upcoming season and Roger Newcomb at We Love Soaps says one role MAY be what Real Andrews (ex-Taggart, General Hospital) auditioned for.

I take requests and this past week we had a request for some Big Love SCOOP. Since it’s one of my faves, who am I to not oblige? So we’re kicking it off this week with everyone’s favorite Polygamists. There’s lots of trouble headed Nicki’s way this season as she gets in over her head. Roman goes on trial and will we be hearing more about Bill’s deceased sister Maggie? How did she really die? The fourth wife seems to be happening for the Hendrickson clan. Of course Ana brings some baggage in the form of an ex. Ben who wants to follow in dad’s footsteps and makes his first visit to Juniper Creek. Sarah has a secret and it MAY put her friendship with Heather to the test. Secrets, lies… all the good stuff that we’ve come to love about Big Love! Plus, Barb’s health and Bill faces a former foe. This looks to be another great season!

Thank you to all who tuned in to Friday Night Lights! They premiered to decent numbers (4.6 million) and if they hold those ratings we should get a fourth season. Stay tuned to NBC for the rest of season three. I promise you won’t be disappointed.

“Guiding Light” Alum to Direct “One Tree Hill”


My favorite Michelle Bauer from Guiding Light, Bethany Joy Galeotti (formerly Lenz). will try her hand at directing this fall on the set of her long-running primetime sudser One Tree Hill.

This young woman has to be one of the most talented individuals in television. She is truly a triple threat. She sings, can act her little cutie patootie off and now she's directing. Amazing! In other news from The CW soap, Galeotti's onscreen BFF Chad Michael Murray will write an episode of Tree Hill this fall, according to TV Guide.com's Matt Mitovich.
