Guest star power: Elisabeth Shue and Alanis Morissette join the CTV weekly lineup
Competition is taken to the next level for the contestants during Hollywood Week on “American Idol,” and they’re not the only ones being pushed to their limits – on “Grey’s Anatomy,” Cristina (Sandra Oh) and Owen (Kevin McKidd) head into marriage counselling where they can’t keep from arguing.
It’s a different kind of stress, but on “Up All Night,” Reagan (Christina Applegate) and Chris (Will Arnett) travel with baby Amy for the first time.
Also on “Up All Night,” Ava (Maya Rudolph) agrees to be the minister for the wedding of her former band mate Amanda (Canadian Grammy Award®-winner Alanis Morissette), and past tensions come back to haunt them.
And for more guest star power, Academy Award®-nominee Elisabeth Shue (Leaving Las Vegas) debuts as new character Julie Finlay on CSI!
