On February 15, 2013, an asteroid crashed into the earth’s atmosphere, raining unexpected light and matter over the Ural Mountains in Russia and sparking all sorts of questions. For example, what’s the difference between meteors, meteoroids and meteorites again? This new Nova, coming to TV only six weeks after the Siberian event, answer those questions, and a lot more. Check local listings.

This is the 100th episode of this series – and to celebrate, they’re mounting a playful salute to Clue the board game – and Clue the movie, since it features such stars from that film as Lesley Ann Warren, Christopher Lloyd and Martin Mull. Had that been a better film, this would seem like a more inspired idea, but I’m willing to give it a chance.

Henry Bromell passed away last week, and if you don't know this writer-producer by name, you surely know the trail of hit shows he left behind...

When this series returned last night, introducing its new judges Shakira and Usher by teaming them with veterans Blake Shelton and Adam Levine for a performance of “Come Together,” things got off to a bad start. That was the same song American Idol finalist Candice Glover had killed (in a good way) during the Lennon-McCartney theme night just last week – and her performance, all by itself, beat all four Voice judges so completely, it was no contest. But once the blind judging b

In this episode, Ryan (Matthew Perry) meets a woman, recently widowed, and the two bond enough, with their mutual understanding of grief, to go on a date together. That’s a significant step for Ryan, but for this series as well: The widow is played by Courteney Cox, one of Perry’s old friends from Friends.

Margo Martindale shows up as a guest star on this week’s comedy – and it’s so nice to see how her season-long star turn on Justified has translated into a whole new career for her, widening her options and displaying more of her range. Speaking of which: Tonight’s episode also features star Zooey Deschanel singing, which she does very well – but singing as an Elvis impersonator, which could be new.

To prolong the primary plot line of this series, the producers of Smash have divided without conquering. They’ve had us follow individual characters as they pursue separate side shows, while all we really care about, for now, is the fate and content of Bombshell. That Marilyn Monroe biographical musical is back at center stage on this show, and its disparate elements are beginning to come together again – but for this show, which has lost some of its momentum, is it too late?

Last week’s episode was so good, so clever, and so enjoyable, I immediately watched it over again. And now, with Drew still on the run and Raylan still defying both the Detroit mob and Boyd, I can’t wait to watch, and rewatch, tonight’s installment as well.

SERIES RETURN: NBC, with the dismal stretch it’s been having the past few months, probably was counting the days until this popular show returned. But there’s a catch. Two of the judges, Cee Lo Green and Christina Aguilera, have vacated their pivoting red chairs for this new season, allowing two other performers to sell themselves as judges and mentors as well as musical talents. Coincidentally, the two new arrivals are single-name celebrities: Shakira and Usher. So the action, for t
