As a cast member on CSI: Miami, Eddie Cibrian is used to big explosions, gory murder scenes and lots of action. However, Cibrian's new TV movie, Healing Hands, puts the old adage less is more to the test. "The more subtle it is, the more believable it's going to be," Cibrian tells us. "[Director Bradford May] had the same idea, so when we were doing it, it was just a very subtle kind of thing we wanted to do on camera. We'll let the imagination of the viewers take it to the next level." Imagination is an essential ingredient in film, premiering Saturday at 9/8c on the Hallmark Channel. In the film, Cibrian plays Buddy, a loving fiancÃ© and local janitor who survives a near-death experience with not just a new zest for life, but also the ability to heal people. "At first I was a little skeptical. Here is a guy who just touches people and can just heal them, and I thought it was going to be a lot of hocus pocus stuff," Cibrian says, admitting he quickly changed his mind. "Around us, there's things that happen every day that we can't explain - things that we can attribute to a miracle or a higher power." Cibrian shares his character's belief in an unexplainable higher power, and the similarities don't end there. "He has this wonderful attitude about life," Cibrian says. "Personally, I'm a very optimistic person in general. I tend to always be smiling and tend to always want to help somebody." To Read More Click Here .
* Dancing with the Stars (8/7c ABC) Eleven celebrities are on hand as Season 10 opens, running the gamut from those who recently made headlines (gold-medal-winning Olympic figure skater Evan Lysacek and newly engaged Bachelor Jake Pavelka) to those who bring to mind 1990s nostalgia (Baywatch babe Pamela Anderson and Beverly Hills, 90210 bad girl Shannen Doherty) to former reality star Kate Gosselin. Tonight they dance either the Viennese waltz or the cha-cha, and then return for a second dance next week before the first elimination occurs. * Nurse Jackie (10/9c Showtime ) There's drama amid the trauma and comedy amid the maladies, and through it all there is Nurse Jackie. She's back for a second season, and she is still quite the pill. The episode gets off to a healthy start as our tarnished angel of mercy deals with several questionable incidents that have occurred at the hospital. Chief among them is the "shrinkage rate of [the] pill-o-matix," which means drugs are missing. There's also the chicken Coop, who carps about Jackie "bullying" him. * Castle (10:02/9:02c ABC) A serial killer is on the loose in New York City, and Beckett and Castle (Nathan Fillion) are so desperate to track him down that when he continues to avoid capture they turn to the Feds for help. What they get in this two-part episode, which concludes next week, is a new partner, agent Jordan Shaw (Dana Delany), whose investigative skills are legendary. What viewers get is another chance to see Fillion and Delany, who played a married couple on Desperate Housewives, work together again. * CSI: Miami (10/9c CBS) Horatio's son, Kyle, is back from a tour of duty overseas, but his return isn't exactly peaceful. One of his best friends quickly becomes the primary suspect in a murder, and Kyle looks to H. for help. The victim turns out to be a Muslim father who was outraged that his daughter was dating Kyle's buddy - and trying to get out of an upcoming arranged marriage. * How I Met Your Mother (8/7c CBS) Fans of the series know what it's like when Lily wants her way, and what Lily wants, Lily gets, especially on her birthday! The problem seems almost insignificant: Ted brings a date to the birthday celebration dinner. But the dinner includes an annual tradition, the friends' annual group photo, and Lily doesn't want Ted's date in the picture, so she does everything she can to see that she's excluded. Laura Prepon returns as Karen. Source Here

Jay Leno returned to the Tonight Show the same way he left it: At No. 1 in the ratings. The Tonight Show scored 6.6 million viewers to handily defeat The Late Show, which earned 3.8 million viewers for Leno's longtime rival, David Letterman. Leno's ratings were up 45 percent over Conan O'Brien's average Tonight Show numbers, but were a whopping 58 percent lower than O'Brien's ratings on his first night on the job, back in June. In prime time, ABC was the big winner with the two-hour season finale of The Bachelor (15 million viewers) and the "After the Rose" special (14.3 million). The finale was up 33 percent among adults in the 18-to-49 demographic from last week, but down 4 percent from the last Bachelor finale. CBS comedies also fared well, as How I Met Your Mother drew 10.5 million viewers and the season premiere of Rules of Engagement lured 9.8 million. Big Bang Theory (15.6 million viewers) won the night in the demo, while Two and a Half Men (16.8 million viewers) was the night's most-watched show. A Rob Zombie-directed episode of CSI: Miami (12.1 million viewers) placed second at 10/9c behind "After the Rose." Fox placed third for the night with a House (6.7 million) repeat and 24 (8.6 million), which was down 11 percent in the demo from last week. NBC's Olympics glow quickly wore off, as the network returned to fourth place. Chuck (6.7 million viewers) was up a bit, and a two-hour Law & Order averaged 7.8 million viewers. (The second hour was up 33 percent over The Jay Leno Show's Monday average, however.) The CW's Life Unexpected (1.9 million viewers) slipped just a bit following a repeat. Source Here

CSI: Miami is exploring new boundaries - geographic and cinematic. Monday's episode (10/9c, CBS) stretches its borders as Horatio (David Caruso) and Delko (Adam Rodriguez) leave Miami to investigate an old case involving team member Jesse Cardoza (Eddie Cibrian) in Los Angeles. And the episode also pushes the boundaries of network television, thanks to director Rob Zombie, co-executive producer Barry O'Brien tells TVGuide.com. "It's a very, very cinematic episode," says O'Brien, who wrote the episode. "It has very classic and iconic Rob Zombie visual touches, and it's really a groundbreaking hour for CSI: Miami. Rob really pushed the limits in an appropriate and wonderful way. The episode begins with an explosive, very cinematic murder at a high-end masquerade ball. It's a very Rob Zombie party and it's a very Rob Zombie murder." The episode's guest cast includes Zombie's wife, Sherri Moon Zombie, and Malcolm McDowell, who appeared in Zombie's two Halloween films. Also keep a lookout for Michael Madsen and a cameo from ZZ Top's Billy Gibbons. Madsen's and McDowell's characters both have connections to Bruce Enright (Paul Blackthorne), a man who hosts a murderous masquerade ball. Madsen plays Enright's bodyguard and McDowell plays the lawyer who twisted the facts to keep Enright from going down for killing his own wife. Jesse's overeagerness to put Enright away for that murder is the reason Horatio and Delko head west. "Jesse was accused of tampering with evidence, right before his return to Miami," O'Brien says. "And thus, everything he has done and will do as a CSI is put into question. So, Horatio and Eric throw themselves into that old case with the hope of clearing his name." But can Jesse be trusted? O'Brien says this episode really lays the groundwork for Season 8's final episodes, which explore that very question, as Jesse comes face to face with Enright - who Jesse now believes is responsible for his wife's death as well. "He'll finally face the man who may or may not have killed his wife," O'Brien says. "That's going to be an explosive confrontation, and perhaps a deadly one, which would put Jesse in tremendous jeopardy and outside the protection of the team. "Horatio and the team are going to have to make a determination about who's right, and what justice side of justice Jesse has landed on," O'Brien says. "That question and that confrontation will hurtle us right toward the season finale. ... It's a very explosive end of the season with Jesse walking a very dangerous line between justice and revenge."

Last week, Adam Rodriguez whipped CSI: Miami fans into a frenzy when he announced via Twitter that Eric Delko will be back full time 4 all of season 9! The news came seven months after the actor went off contract with the hit procedural after failing to come to terms on a new deal with CBS. (At the time, Rodriguez said he agreed to return for 10 episodes to give Delko a proper send-off.) Why the turnaround? And what does this mean for Delko (or, more importantly, Delko and Calleigh)? Rodriguez, who's currently wrapping up his recurring stint on Ugly Betty as Hilda's beau, took some time off from fighting a nasty cold to give me the scoop. To Read More Click Here .
Adam Rodriguez is returning to CSI: Miami full-time next season, TVGuide.com has confirmed. Rodriguez, 34, broke the news on his Twitter account Friday. "I have some news that I hope will make CSI: Miami fans happy. Eric Delko will be back full time 4 all of season 9!!!" The actor has appeared on the show since its start in 2002, but only showed up in a handful of episodes after his character, Delko, left the CSI team earlier this season. He has since popped up as a forensics expert for the Miami District Attorney's office and as a possible love interest for Calleigh (Emily Procter). These days, Rodriguez can also be seen on Ugly Betty as Hilda's boyfriend, Bobby. Are you excited for Rodriguez's return to CSI: Miami? Source Here
