* Katie Holmes, a.k.a. Mrs. Tom Cruise, will guest on Eli Stone next season. The dramedy—from Greg Berlanti, with whom she worked on Dawson’s Creek—is about a lawyer/prophet who is troubled by visions that make him seem like some kind of religious lunatic. Gee, where would she ever have gotten any experience [remainder of joke redacted by Time Inc. legal department]?

* The panel session with the producers of Scrubs is not, for some reason, interrupted by an overly long, disappointing fantasy sequence.

* The network battles the bad buzz on Life on Mars.

* Jimmy Kimmel impersonates a reporter, while ABC president Steve McPherson impersonates somebody who is delighted to announce that Katherine Heigl will be sticking around to bash Grey’s Anatomy.
