Justin Timberlake had Ellen DeGegeneres' in-studio audience gushing over his love for wife Jessica Biel. The actor-singer appeared on Thursday's "The Ellen DeGeneres Show" to promote his album "The 20/20 Experience," but DeGeneres aptly had him talking about wedded bliss instead.

"Bates Motel": It is impossible for me to overstate how truly fabulous Vera Farmiga's performance is in the crazy, creepy yet emotionally resonant prequel to "Psycho. " The setting is "Twin Peaks"-evocative and the writing is terrific, if a bit overly concerned with making every person in the mythical White Pine Bay, Ore., (which is really Canada) Not Quite What They Seem. All the actors are solid, especially Freddie Highmore as a young sweater-tugging, fugue-state-experiencing Norman and Max Thieriot as his older black-sheep brother Dylan.

But executive producer Dick Wolf said "Chicago Fire" will not tackle the real-life Boston situation, largely because the bombing was a terrorist attack. "The last thing we want to do is exploit a tragedy," Wolf told reporters in Pasadena who had gathered for a media day centered on NBC Universal shows.
