As if Sheldon didn't have enough to contend with, he had to deal with a bird outside of his window on Thursday's "Big Bang Theory."
His ornithophobia got the best of him, even causing him to use a device that cracked his windows, instead of getting rid of the creature.
Thankfully, Amy and Bernadette came to the rescue, explaining that he had to get to know the bird to get over his fear, "just like with the mailman."

The last time we saw Jason Lee (after the cancellation of his once-popular series "My Name is Earl"), he was the star of the TNT series "Memphis Beat" and he took on a wild guest appearance as a washed up rock star on Fox's "Raising Hope." (TNT is owned by the same parent company as CNN.)
With the cancellation of "Beat" and the recent completion of his big holiday sequel, "Alvin and the Chipmunks: Chip-Wrecked," Lee is moving on to "Up All Night." He'll play Kevin, a love interest for Maya Rudolph's talk show host boss, Ava, on the new NBC comedy.
"He's way more straight-laced [than Earl], a little bit more clean-cut, doesn't have an awesome mustache, unfortunately," Lee told reporters earlier this week.

Tuesday night's episode of "Covert Affairs" was a tour de force for Peter Gallagher, as Annie was entrusted by Joan to work with Arthur on a mission in Berlin (gotta say, I am digging the fact that Annie is traveling a lot more this season).
It wasn't too difficult to figure out that Joan actually wanted Annie to spy on Arthur, as he'd had a previous relationship (or at least flirtation) with Elsa, the asset that they were trying to get information from there. It turns out that Arthur was in Berlin in 1989 (for the fall of the Berlin wall, perhaps?).
We finally got to see Arthur out in the field, and he did not disappoint. Watching Arthur take part in a car chase was worth the price of admission.

Sunday night's episode of "The Walking Dead" won't exactly satisfy the "we need to see more zombies" contingent of fans, though it did include the most disgusting zombie scene of the season.
It happened after the survivors came upon a "swimmer" inside a well at the farm where they had been staying. Apparently he had even grown gills. (Points for originality.)
Anyone could tell that lowering Glenn down to get the "swimmer" was a monumentally bad idea, and I'm not entirely sure what the plan was once he was lowered down.

[Editor's Note: There are a few spoilers for the season in this post. Be forewarned!]
There are only 12 episodes remaining before "Chuck" goes off into that good night (including one airing tonight), but that doesn't mean there aren't plenty of twists and turns still to come, at least according to executive producer Chris Fedak.
"Each episode will change," Fedak told reporters on Wednesday. "From the episode that comes on Friday night, we will end in a far different place than where we began, and by the end of [next week's episode], things will have changed again. So it’s like this season, every episode will be different, and by the end of each episode, the dynamic and the core dynamic of the show will be changing."
So far, this has definitely been a season of change, with Morgan as the "intersect" and Chuck relying more and more on his computer geek skills (and no, Fedak won't say if Chuck ends up getting it back).

Oh, poor Sheldon Cooper. He really bit off more than he could chew when he befriended Amy Farrah Fowler.
As he described it on Thursday night's episode of "The Big Bang Theory," "Women. Delightfully mysterious or bat-crap crazy?"
It seems Amy was devastated when Bernadette invited Penny, and not her, to shop for wedding dresses. So, she retreated back to her apartment playing a mournful (but hilarious) rendition of "Everybody Hurts" on the harp (and Mayim Bialik confirms that is indeed her playing the harp).
