The 'high suspense drama' promises a political storyline
I would have thought being held hostage would be boring. Insanely stressful, but mostly sitting around and watching some bad guy pace and freak out while you hope that the phone rings. Apparently, I was wrong. "Hostages," which will be airing on CBS Mondays this fall at 10:00 p.m., promises that it is a "high octane suspense drama." So, no boredom. Or at least they don't film the boring part.

The auditions for the 10th season are tough and the bar is high
"So You Think You Can Dance" returns for a tenth season, and aren't you glad? Apparently producer and judge Nigel Lythgoe is still stumping for a separate results episode each week, but for now I'm just happy to see some really great dancing back on television. Yes, thanks to Zendaya and Kellie Pickler we've definitely gotten some of that on "Dancing with the Stars," but "So You Think You Can Dance" raises the bar to a completely different level. Even better, that bar seems to be extraordinarily high this year. Judging from these Hollywood auditions, this might be a season in which anyone could be deserving of the win -- yes, that makes it harder for us to decide for whom to vote, but it should be a lot of fun to watch.
See James Caan look grizzly in this new Wednesday comedy
"Back in the Game" comes to ABC Wednesdays at 8:30 p.m. this fall, and is probably most notable for featuring James Caan in his most grizzled form. But really, the story is about Terry Gannon Jr. (Maggie Lawson). She was an All Star softball player until life threw her a few curve balls -- a baby, a lost college scholarship and a loser for a husband.

Legalizing gay marriage is more popular than the idea of multiple spouses
If you're watching the NatGeo show "Polygamy, USA" (Tues. at 9:00 p.m.), you may have mixed feelings about what you're seeing as the show follows a community of fundamentalist Mormons practicing the unconventional lifestyle. The network recently conducted a survey to determine how people really feel about polygamy. The answer is, simply put, not that great.
A dad's plans are derailed by his high school grad daughter
"Will & Grace" star Sean Hayes plays a gay divorced dad
"Will & Grace" star Sean Hayes has a new sitcom, this time playing a gay divorced dad with a pushy mom (Linda Lavin) and a typical teenage girl (Sam Isler). Instead of the usual mom-trying-to-juggle storyline, it's Sean who struggles to find work-home balance in this first trailer for the show.
