THE SIMPSONS: "THE DEBARTED"

Topher Grace, who starred as Eddie Brock/Venom in Spider-Man 3, is providing a guest voice in "The Debarted," the Sunday, March 2 episode of The Simpsons on Fox.

Here's how Fox describes the episode:

"When a new, tough-looking kid at school named Donny teams up with Bart to help him carry out his pranks, Bart thinks he has found his ultimate partner in crime. However, when Bart's seemingly foolproof pranks begin to backfire, Groundskeeper Willie warns Bart that he smells a rat in Bart's group of friends. With Principal Skinner on his case and the possibility of expulsion on the horizon, Bart must figure out who he can trust and who he must get rid of before it is too late.

"Meanwhile, Homer receives a fancy loaner car after Marge damages their old car in an accident, and he grows extremely attached to his new set of luxury wheels."

TERMINATOR: THE SARAH CONNOR CHRONICLES: "THE DEMON HAND"

Fox has released a new description of "The Demon Hand," the episode of Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles scheduled to air on Monday, Feb. 25.

Here's how the network describes the episode:

"When Sarah breaks into Agent Ellison's apartment looking for a missing endo-arm, she discovers dossiers, files and video from her stay in the mental hospital. The files lead her to hospital psychiatrist Dr. Silverman, a doomsday convert who made Sarah's hospital stay unbearable.

"Meanwhile, Cameron enrolls in a ballet class taught by Maria Shipkov, Dmitri's sister, in an effort to track down his whereabouts and to find out who has the Turk. John learns what it took for his mom to escape the hospital. Agent Ellison's endo-arm discovery puts him danger."

Bruce Davison, known to comics fans as Senator Kelly from the X-Men movies, plays Dr. Silverman.
