Last week's Mercy ended with Mike figuring out his wife Veronica had an affair in Iraq. So, how is Mike going to fare this week now that he's digested the news of her infidelity? "It comes to violence [between Mike and Sands]," James Tupper, who plays Dr. Sands on the medical drama, tells TVGuide.com. "Very full-on, direct, action-movie violence. I felt like an action hero for the day of shooting!" Though it's hard to say why Sands has had such a hard time letting Veronica go despite her ambivalence, Tupper feels a lot of it has to do with them sharing something in Iraq. "I think being close to her is necessary for his recovery from the experience," says Tupper. While the freshman series has aired only its first six episodes, last week alone, Elisabeth Moss, Jerry Stiller and Anne Meara appeared as guest stars. Tupper also discussed an upcoming appearance by his Men In Trees co-star and mother of his child, Anne Heche. "Her character hasn't been determined yet, but she'll be written into a future story," says Tupper. "She really wants to be a part of it. It's very exciting." Even The Real Housewives of New Jersey 's Teresa Giudice and Jacqueline Laurita are scheduled to make an appearance at the series' local Jersey bar. "The Jersey housewives don't have a big acting part like with a monologue or having to cry or anything, but they're there to create the world for us in the bar, and it's hilarious and fun," says Tupper. Will a table get flung? "Funny you should ask that," laughs Tupper. We'll take that as a yes. Source Here
The New York Yankees' World Series clincher against the Philadelphia Phillies led Fox to a Wednesday night prime-time ratings win, according to early Nielsen estimates. Game 6 coverage averaged 22.3 million viewers and pulled a 7.4 rating among 18-to-49-year-olds, the best numbers for any World Series game since 2004 when the Boston Red Sox ended their 86-year Series drought.

Criminal Minds had the most viewers on the night (12 million), followed by CSI: NY (11. 6 million). The New Adventures of Old Christine (7 million viewers) and Gary Unmarried (6.7 million) both outperformed ABC's comedy counterparts Hank (5.3 million) and The Middle (6.1 million).

On NBC, Mercy (6.6 million viewers), Law & Order: Special Victims Unit (8 million) and The Jay Leno Show (4.7 million) were all down.

Here's some happy Friday news for fans of Mercy , Community and Parks & Recreation . NBC has picked up all 3 series for full seasons. From Zap2it: "None of the three shows has made a whole lot of noise in the ratings ( Mercy is the leader of the three, averaging 7.8 million viewers a week), but as NBC tries to climb out of its fourth-place hole, it's opting for a measure of stability in the second half of the season." We recently mentioned both Community and Parks in our Fall Things Reconsidered feature. While I noted that I don't feel like Community has lived up to its potential just yet, I'm happy that it's getting a full season to grow. And...as I mentioned...I think Parks has been much improved in its second season, so I'm thrilled that it will be sticking around. Which of these series are you most excited about their pickups?
