In a shocking announcement, Grey's Anatomy producer Shonda Rhimes confirmed today that Isaiah Washington will check back in to her ABC series to help bid farewell to Sandra Oh in May.

The actor departed the series at the conclusion of Season 3 amidst a firestorm he created by referring to then-colleague T.R. Knight by a gay slur.

Washington's character, Dr. Preston Burke, was written off the drama when he left Oh's Cristina at the altar.

Oh, meanwhile, said last year that she would be leaving the drama following Grey's Anatomy Season 10.

Last Tuesday night, Aria finally find out.

On Pretty Little Liars Season 4 Episode 21, viewers witnessed the fallout of her discovering the truth about Ezra and wondered: Would she flip out?

In a word: Yes. Aria trashed her ex-boyfriend's apartment and even considered telling the principal about her relationship with Ezra.

But Hanna talked her friend out of this course of action, as fans were left to wonder whether Ezra's talking points are actually accurate.

Is he really just writing a book? Is he not as evil as he seems?

Granted, the guy is more into his tome's release date than Aria, so it's not as if Ezra will be winning any Nice Person Awards any time soon.

Because no one was clamoring for it and everyone hated the final two seasons... Heroes is headed back to NBC!

The network aired a promo for a miniseries event titled "Heroes Reborn" last night, saying in a press release that it will be comprised of 13 episodes and air in 2015.

The reboot will tell a standalone story, be produced by creator Tim Kring and may or may not include characters from the original.

“The enormous impact Heroes had on the television landscape when it first launched in 2006 was eye-opening,” NBC Entertainment President Jennifer Salke said in announcing the project. “Shows with that kind of resonance don’t come around often and we thought it was time for another installment.

“Until we get closer to air in 2015, the show will be appropriately shrouded in secrecy, but we won’t rule out the possibility of some of the show’s original cast members popping back in.”

Other shows planning spinoffs include NCIS, Supernatural, How I Met Your Mother and Arrow.

Greta Gerwig is headed to CBS.

The Golden Globe-nominated actress will anchor the network's planned How I Met Your Mother spinoff (aptly titled How I Met Your Dad) as Sally, a Peter Pan-type who casting notes describe as never having grown up.

She has no direction in life. She's likely going to split from her husband of one year. And she relies on her friends for advice and guidance.

If the sitcom gets picked up, it will follow the same concept as the original on which it's based, just with gender roles switched: Sally will be telling her kids, via flashback, how she met their father.

Emily Spivey wrote the pilot with HIMYM creators Craig Thomas and Carter Bays, who are on board to produce.

Are you excited for this spinoff? Go watch How I Met Your Mother online at TV Fanatic and sound off now on Gerwig's casting.

“Reluctantly, I was trying to throw a complete game here, but I think we’re going to have to go to the bullpen, and I don’t know if you’re aware of this or not, but you’re Mariano Rivera, at least tonight,” Costas told Lauer by phone this morning on Today.

“Let’s hope it’s only tonight. I’m walking around, I might as well be playing ‘Marco Polo.’ I have no idea where I am.”
