* Castle (10:02/9:02c ABC) She's a hard-nosed detective. He's a charmingly irreverent crime novelist. Surely this partnership can't last for long. Or can it? After all, the show is premised on their unlikely pairing. Things could change tonight, however, when Debi Mazar dances her way onto set to play Castle 's agent and she brings with her an offer that may be too good for him to pass up. The catch? It could mean the end to Castle's days of derring-do as Beckett's partner, and that would certainly be a crime. * Bud Greenspan Presents: Beijing 2008 - America's Olympic Glory (7/6c Showtime ) Those who have seen previous documentaries on Olympic Games from Emmy and Peabody award-winning filmmaker Bud Greenspan will know what to expect. For those who haven't: These are profiles of athletes that follow their stories from preparation for competition through the final results, focusing on the attributes that make them Olympians. This film from the 2008 Summer Olympics in Beijing includes such U.S. standouts as gymnast Nastia Liukin, fencers Keeth and Erinn Smart and swimmer Jason Lezak. * House (8/7c Fox) House and company won't be back until November, so if they want to get a Halloween episode in this year it had better be now. Sure enough, House sees ghosts (confronts them, anyhow) while Chase's loose ethics are coming back to haunt him (and messing things up with Cameron). Tonight's patient is a cop with heart-disease worries. Actually, he doesn't have heart disease, but he wants to be treated for it because his father, grandfather and great-grandfather all died from it when they were 40. * The Big Bang Theory (9:31/8:31c CBS) Wil Wheaton is known for his role as Wesley Crusher on Star Trek: The Next Generation , but, when he makes an appearance on tonight's episode in a cameo, Sheldon hopes to make him the "crushed." It seems that Sheldon harbors an undying resentment for Wheaton that goes back to his childhood. So, when he hears that his nemesis is competing in a trading-card game, he relishes the chance to compete with him. * CSI: Miami (10/9c CBS) Adam Rodriguez's tenure on the series is rapidly coming to an end. The actor, recently seen in Tyler Perry's I Can Do Bad All by Myself , will soon join the cast of Ugly Betty as an old high-school flame of Betty's sister, Hilda. Tonight, Rodriguez - er, make that Delko - starts making his exit strategy, which becomes apparent to Calleigh. The central story focuses on a lethal outbreak in Miami that is investigated as murder. And there's good news for Khandi Alexander fans. The actress, once a series regular, returns tonight to help with the case. - Tim Holland Source Here

Nathan Fillion's character on Castle doesn't take many things seriously, something that perhaps has rubbed off on the actor. When asked what he thinks will lure viewers into the ABC procedural dramedy's second season, the 38-year-old former Firefly and Desperate Housewives star cracks jokes. "This season we decided to go with no hooks, no hooks at all," Fillion tells TVGuide.com. "That's become our mantra: no hooks, let's just coast. One episode, we actually take an episode from the first season and just changed everybody's names and filmed it again." Co-stars Stana Katic and Seamus Dever, who join Fillion on the other end of the line for a telephone interview during a break from shooting, laugh at most of Fillion's jokes. All the actors say humor is what sets Castle apart from the glut of other crime procedurals. "The writers are very realistic about the kind of show that we have," Katic says. "We're a crime procedural, but through a light-hearted, comedic eye. I think the other shows that we reference are kind of dark and try to be very realistic and scientific and pragmatic, and I think we just have fun with it." Dever is a fan of the show's focus on the nuts and bolts of being a homicide detective. "I think there's a little bit of a post-modern comment on other shows because we come around after America has been exposed to 10 years of CSI," Dever says. "I think we're commenting on what really is police work: pounding on doors and taking phone calls, rather than being about forensics. I think that comes from the police officers and detectives that work on our show." Read More: TVGuide.com - Castle: Is a Beckett-Castle Kiss in the Cards?
