And Bush tweeted again later on, after being asked whether she misses the characters, “I’m so happy for them to have gotten what they want in real life, so I’m OK with it. People have to do what’s best for them!”

RELEVANT QUESTIONS–DON’T READ IF YOU DON’T WANT TO KNOW!!!

Got any more details on Madchen Amick’s role as Mac’s new love interest on CSI: NY? — Clarisse
ADAM:
As a matter of fact I do. “[She and Mac] will bump into each other, literally,” executive producer Pam Veasey tells me. “She is a hospital ER doctor, and we will visit her workplace many times.” Look for Mac’s first visit to the hospital to take place on March 10.

What crazy things will Phil do next on Modern Family? — Amy
MICKEY:
Last week Julie Bowen teased some sexytime between Claire and Phil, but she tells us there might be one obstacle: Facebook. “My husband has ex-girlfriends who get in touch with him and I have ex-boyfriends that get in touch with me, and we laugh about it. This being Modern Family though, it’s going to take a twist for the worse,” she says. That twist is the always enjoyable Judy Greer, who pops in to play Phil’s unstable ex. This reminds me of that time that I reconnected with that girl from the gym who taught me how to stretch. Oh wait, that wasn’t Facebook. Never mind!

I’m thinking about dropping 90210 from my TiVo lineup. Say something to stop me from doing so. — Alexa
MICKEY:
If you were unhappy with the mix of story lines in the fall episodes, imagine putting them all in a blender, leaving the cover off and hitting pulse a few times. Sure, some of your West Bev smoothie will spill out the top (never to be heard from again), but what’s left inside the blender will recombine familiar ingredients in new and interesting ways. The romantics in the hizzy might enjoy the unexpected pairings planned for the spring run.

I can’t believe Damages killed Tom! Any more bombshells coming? — Katelyn
ADAM:
Boy, are there! Look for two juicy reveals in the next episode, which present possible motives for Tom’s murder. The first causes Tom to take a personal interest in the Tobin case and may also lead to the second. “Ellen starts to help me out in my quest [for revenge],” Tate Donovan tells me, “and things start to develop in a complicated, interesting way. That’s all I’m going to say.”
