File Kristen Bell and Ted Danson under your favorite – and perhaps least expected – new costar pairing.

The two actors are poised to make their debut together in The Good Place, a breezy new comedy premiering Monday on NBC – and if their chemistry is as strong on screen as off, we've got plenty to look forward to.

"Can I just say, 'I adore you'?" Danson, 68, tells Bell, 36, during an exclusive PEOPLE interview for this week's issue. "You're spectacular!"

3 Reasons You Can't Miss Season 2 of FX's Fargo

Originally posted 10/12/2015 10:00PM

Fargo's Emmy-winning first season was a brilliant surprise: Billy Bob Thornton gave a comeback performance as villain Lorne Malvo, Allison Tolman gave a breakout one as policewoman Molly Solverson and the series as a whole fell only a few suspenseful shivers shy of HBO's first season of True Detective.

We know now, of course, that True Detective in its second season daringly created new characters in a new mystery in a new place, and yet the only thing memorable about it was someone with a falcon mask and maybe Colin Farrell looking clammy and in need of an antacid.

But Fargo's new season, which brings in a whole new cast and year (1979), looks very strong. Here's what makes it tick.

Originally posted 09/27/2015 02:50PM

After 15 seasons, 337 episodes, countless autopsies, several cast changes, three spin-offs and some of the most inventive murder investigations in TV history, CSI: Crime Scene Investigation is ready to close the morgue drawer for good.

As the now-iconic series airs its final two-hour installment on Sunday, several longtime cast members – including original star William Petersen, who returns as Gil Grissom for the finale – gathered recently at the Paley Center for Media in Beverly Hills to look back on the fond memories, famous fans–turned–guest stars (Justin Bieber and Taylor Swift among them) and the creepy forensic details they'll never forget.

William Petersen, Marg Helgenberger Tease Their CSI Return to Say Goodbye to the Show Where 'Each Day Was an Invention'

What happened in Vegas ...

When CSI prepares to wrap up its "historic and groundbreaking" CBS run on Sunday, many of the series's favorites are returning, including charter cast members William Petersen as Gil Grissom and Marg Helgenberger as Catherine Willows, to join Ted Danson's D.B. Russell for one last investigation.

"We've told a lot of stories in 15 years. We're trying to complete some of the dangling pieces," says Petersen in an exclusive featurette that goes inside the series finale, appropriately titled Immortality. "We hope that we're able to do this series proud by saying goodbye in the right way."

Ever Since Surgery Mary Steenburgen Is Obsessed with the Accordion

Mary Steenburgen Finds a New Passion ... for the Accordion!

Originally posted 10/28/2013 01:30PM

The harmonies came magically, almost supernaturally.

One day, after having a minor surgery on her arm, Mary Steenburgen literally woke up with a sudden, inexplicable musical ability – something she had never really had in all her 60 years.

"[The surgery] was enough that I went under general anesthetic, and the music started right after that," she recently told CBS News.

She couldn't explain it, but she went with it. And since that day, the Oscar-winning actress has written or co-written more than 40 songs, and was even signed recently by Universal Music.

Break out the champagne! Chelsea Clinton is a married woman.

Surrounded by 400 friends, and her parents Bill and Hillary (who wore Oscar de la Renta), the former First Daughter, 30, wed her longtime boyfriend Marc Mezvinsky, 32, in Rhinebeck, N.Y., on Saturday. She wore a dress designed by Vera Wang, a family friend, who was also in attendance.

Shortly after the ceremony, President Clinton and Secretary of State Clinton released a statement. "Today, we watched with great pride and overwhelming emotion as Chelsea and Marc wed in a beautiful ceremony at Astor Courts, surrounded by family and their close friends. We could not have asked for a more perfect day to celebrate the beginning of their life together, and we are so happy to welcome Marc into our family. On behalf of the newlyweds, we want to give special thanks to the people of Rhinebeck for welcoming us and to everyone for their well-wishes on this special day."

No $3 Million Wedding for Chelsea – and Other Rumors Put to Rest

Originally posted 07/30/2010 09:00PM

The town of Rhinebeck, N.Y., is abuzz with preparations and news outlets are clamoring for details, but what's really going on when it comes to the Saturday wedding of former First Daughter Chelsea Clinton and fiancé Marc Mezvinsky?

PEOPLE tracked down some of the juiciest rumors and burning questions:


1. Could it really be costing $5 million?

Not even close. Sources close to the bride's parents, who are paying for the wedding, cast recent tabloid "guesstimates" of a wedding budget between $3 million to $5 million as so grossly fabricated they are unworthy of comment. One longtime family friend said the wedding is not exceeding six figures – so in the hundreds-of-thousands dollar range, not millions.
