Update: Showtime reports that Sunday's "Homeland" finale was its most-watched freshman season-ender ever, with 1.7 million viewers at 10 p.m. and more than 2 million when the repeat was included. For the season overall, it's averaged more than 4.2 million viewers across all its platforms, putting it only behind "Dexter" -- which also ended its season Sunday -- in popularity on the network.

SPOILER ALERT: If you haven’t yet seen the season finale of Showtime’s “Homeland” — even if you’ve yet to see a single episode but think there’s a chance that you’ll want to catch up at some point — please stop reading now.

Gellar's a ringer for herself in CW's "Ringer"/CW

So if you're one of the people who've been eagerly awaiting Sarah Michelle Gellar's return to TV tonight in the CW's "Ringer" (9 p.m., PHL17), it's  time to ask yourself: Was it SMG I've missed, or "Buffy the Vampire Slayer"?

Gellar gets to play not one, but two characters in "Ringer," a soapy, slightly noir-ish mystery whose basic premise mirrors ABC's "The Lying Game" -- twins switch places, then one disappears before they can switch back -- yet neither of these very attractive women has the power to permanently dispatch the undead.

If that's a deal-breaker for you, it's best to know now.

Mercedes (Amber Riley) has a moment/Fox/Mike Yarish

Where have all the Gleeks gone?

That’s the question they might be asking at Fox, where “Glee” (8 p.m. Tuesdays, Fox 29) returned two weeks ago for Season 3 to a considerably smaller audience than it had a year ago.

The slide in the Nielsens for live and same-day viewing continued last week, when the show drew just 8.6 million viewers and failed to win its time slot among advertiser-targeted 18- to 49-year-olds.
