According to the Ausiello Files, Adrianne Palicki is heading back to The CW 's Supernatural in the role of Jessica, Sam's dead girlfriend. Adrianne Palicki is currently playing the part of Tyra on Friday Night Lights . As Tyra, Adrianne has proven that she has the chops to be a great actress with a lot of depth and intensity. Although Supernatural might be on the lighter side of things (let's be honest, it's not meant to be intense drama), it is safe to say that her casting will be a welcome addition to the show. As things stand today, Adrianne Palicki is only slated for one episode early in the season. Hopefully we will see more of her. Source Here

* The Fashion Show (10 pm/ET Bravo ) The outfitters confront a red-faced social predicament: the "walk of shame" - that next-morning embarrassment of wearing the same clothes from the night before. The designers seek a solution, transforming last night's party dress into today's work-appropriate wear, utilizing office items in the process. Later, they're whisked away to a surprise location for the elimination challenge. Actress Becki Newton (Ugly Betty) and model-fashionista Veronica Webb are the guest judges. * Burn Notice (9 pm/ET USA Network ) Dealing with a host of problems is nothing new for Michael. But it seems to be coming at him from all sides these days, with old foes able to track him down now that he's lost protection from those that burned him, and with the cops sniffing around him. His latest foe is a repeat customer, the arms dealer (The Shield's Jay Karnes) who blackmailed Michael's ex last season. Now he's kidnapped Nate and is forcing Michael to help him pull off a heist. If that weren't enough, Paxson is still hot on Michael's tail. * So You Think You Can Dance (9 pm/ET Fox) As tonight's elimination of two more dancers will pare the field to 16, it's appropriate that this results show's performer is Kristinia DeBarge, whose recent single, "Goodbye" (which samples the 1969 Steam hit, "Na Na Hey Hey Kiss Him Goodbye"), has been getting lots of airplay on pop radio. Incidentally, Ms. DeBarge is no stranger to the spotlight, having appeared on the American Idol spin-off, American Juniors, a few years back, and her father, James, was a member of the 1980s R&B group DeBarge. * Supernatural (9 pm/ET The CW ) Lovers of classic horror movies from the 1930s and '40s will relish this eerie black-and-white October repeat, which pays homage to films from that era that featured Dracula, the Wolf Man and the Mummy. Sam and Dean head off to Pennsylvania (think Transylvania) during Oktoberfest to investigate an alleged vampire attack. There, they encounter a shape-shifting demon on a murderous rampage who takes the form of iconic movie monsters. * Soundstage (10 pm/ET PBS) Jackson Browne is far from "Running on Empty" - literally and figuratively. The West Coast singer-songwriter serves up selections from his 2008 Time the Conqueror album, including the title cut and "The Drums of War," and showcases a few of the classics that earned him a berth in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, including "Boulevard" and his first Top 10 hit, "Doctor My Eyes."

Now that we have a definitive end date to this summer hiatus for Supernatural (the show returns September 10), it's a little easier to make it through these long months without any new Sam and Dean. Thankfully The CW Source recently posted a new video interview they did with Jensen Ackles at the Paley Center's annual golf tournament.. While the video doesn't have any huge revelations, it does reinforce the fans' love for the brotherly bonding Supernatural does so well, and it also shows off the scruffy beard Jensen is growing for the summer break. Mostly, the video shows that Jensen and probably everyone involved with Supernatural knows that making the brothers fight and putting them apart for most of last season was problematic. While it was interesting from a storytelling perspective, most Supernatural fans respond to the brotherly love between Sam and Dean Winchester, and putting that core relationship in jeopardy was also endangering the fans' primary reason for loving this show. Luckily the brothers found their way back to one another at the end of the season, and Jensen is happy about it. Though he claims not to know what season 5 has in store, he hopes it has more of the brothers fighting together. Source & Video
Supernatural fans have reason to be excited today. Even though the premiere of season 5 is far away, Jared Padalecki and Jensen Ackles recently appeared at a European convention where they gave fans a lot of hope for Supernatural season 6. Some people worried that a sixth season would result in a completely different show, but Jensen confirmed to the Coventry Telegraph that he and Jared both have six-year contracts for the show, meaning if CW president Dawn Ostroff picks up Supernatural for season 6, Sam and Dean will both be in it. That's the good news, but here's the not-so-good news. While Jensen and Jared have six-year contracts, creator Eric Kripke only has a five-year contract, so if the network does renew Supernatural beyond Kripke's original five-year plan, there are two options. The first is for the network to shell out some big bucks to sign him to a new contract. The second is to continue the show without Kripke. If you think that's jumping the gun, think again. In the interview, Jared also mentioned that his "best guess" is that the show will be renewed once again. The increased ratings for season 4 plus the promise of being paired with new blood in the form of The Vampire Diaries makes Supernatural a more solid prospect than the network's other aging shows like One Tree Hill and Smallville . What do you think? Is season 6 worth it if we get Jensen and Jared but no Kripke? Personally, I might be OK with it so long as they promoted one of the other great writers like Sera Gamble or Jeremy Carver. Source Here
At yesterday's upfront presentation for the Fall schedule, CW President Dawn Ostroff had the difficult task of being optimistic about some of the struggling network's long-running shows. One Tree Hill has lost stars Chad Michael Murray, and Hilarie Burton, Supernatural creator Eric Kripke has repeatedly said that season 5 will be the last one, and Smallville is entering season 9 abandoned on Fridays. That recipe might spell disaster for some who could see all three major shows endings after this year, but Ostroff thinks differently. To Read More Click Here .
CW NEWS HIGHLIGHTS Here's what you need to know from this morning's CW upfront: * The Gossip Girl spinoff remains marginally alive despite not getting a series pickup for fall. CW president Dawn Ostroff says, "It was the toughest year we've ever had, figuring out what to pick up, because [our pilots] were all really, really good. We do have room for another midseason show. We have some reality, and we'll probably have another scripted drama. We're just going to take a beat and see where we are. In all honesty, I think the Gossip Girl spinoff is the show that we would love to be able to find a place for as the season goes on." (There were no similarly encouraging words about Body Politic with Jason Dohring, Brian Austin Green, Minka Kelly and Gabrielle Union.) * Reaper , Privileged , The Game and Everybody Hates Chris are confirmed dead. * Like we told you yesterday, the CW schedule will be: Gossip Girl and One Tree Hill on Mondays, 90210 and new show Melrose Place on Tuesdays, America's Next Top Model and new show The Beautiful Life on Wednesdays, new show Vampire Diaries (can.not.wait.) and Supernatural on Thursdays and Smallville and a Top Model repeat on Fridays. Read on if you want to see E!Online's green carpet candids of the Gossip Girl cast, the 90210 actors (including both fabulous Jessicas!) and Ashlee Simpson-Wentz.

The CW 's upfronts are tomorrow, but by then, seems as though everything will be old news regarding their upcoming TV plans. It was leaked yesterday that new series Vampire Diaries, Beautiful Life and Melrose Place (2009) had been officially picked up. Today, the official CW Fall Schedule has leaked a day early: Monday 8 PM: Gossip Girl 9 PM: One Tree Hill Tuesday 8 PM: 90210 9 PM: Melrose Place (2009) Wednesday 8 PM: America's Next Top Model 9 PM: The Beautiful Life Thursday 8 PM: Vampire Diaries 9 PM: Supernatural Friday 8 PM: Smallville 9 PM: America's Next Top Model Encore CW will not be having any programming on Sundays. What do you think of the schedule? Surprised to see Smallville pushed to Fridays?
There are so many ways to resolve a rivalry without using your fists. Why not a sing-off? Or a competition to see who looks better slathered in goo? Or who can lose the most weight? Or... wow. Maybe Jack and Sawyer have the right idea, settling things the old-fashioned way. In this week's finale-filled Top Moments, we look at some folks who find creative ways to settle their differences. And two guys who aren't fighters, but lovers. Of each other's moms. 12. Best, um, "Homage": The Grey's Anatomy reveal that the bus-pancake patient is George provides a jaw-dropping jolt that is, to anyone who hasn't seen ER. The dearly departed medical drama employed the same twist 12 years ago (and much more effectively) when a John Doe brought in after jumping in front of a train turned out to be Dr. Dennis Gant. (Gant died, by the way. Does that mean George will die too?) 11. Best Last Call: The rise of Lucifer isn't the biggest shock in the Supernatural finale. It's the reveal that all this time Ruby has been manipulating Sam into breaking the last seal. Though Dean is "too late" to stop the apocalypse, he does manage to cut off Sam's demon-blood supply - in the most permanent of ways. 10. Sweetest Deal: After having his nearly unthinkable Dollhouse theory proven true, disgraced G-man Paul Ballard offers his sleuthing services to Adelle in exchange for the early release of one Active. But rather than tapping Caroline/Echo, he extends freedom to onetime lover Mellie/November. What a doll. 9. Smallest Winner: Tara Costa, a 24-year-old who won 18 straight weeks of challenges, seems like a natural winner of The Biggest Loser as she steps to the scale. The other two finalists, who have already weighed in, wait anxiously to see if she'll best them once again. But she doesn't. The unlikely winner turns out to Helen Phillips, a woman twice Costa's age who shed 54 percent of her body weight. Who says youth carries all the advantages? 8. Global Warming Award: Geeks with dreams of getting the girl give new thought to vacating mom's basement as The Big Bang Theory 's Penny has a hard time saying goodbye to North Pole-bound Leonard. Asked by her would-be beau about her prolonged hug, Penny says - though only to the audience - "It means I wish you weren't going." We melted. 7. Most Ostentatious Display of Wealth: We knew the Jersey girls featured in the latest installment of The Real Housewives would be as flashy as the ladies from past installments, but nothing beats Teresa paying a $120,000 furniture bill in cash. "I hear the economy is crashin' - so that's why I pay cash." If you have that many dollars around, why not shape them into bean bag chairs? 6. Dirtiest Walk-Off: Some may call it artistic, but America's Next Top Model finale runway looks more like a mud- and grease-soaked orgy. The designer's vision for slathering grease all over his models while they crawl and writhe down the catwalk is a little too high-fashion for our taste. Teyona, who made the best of losing her fake hair amid all the mud-slinging, went on to win the show's latest cycle. Congratulations. To Read The Rest Click Here .
