... Question: I've been a huge fan of Person of Interest since it premiered, but in the back half of Season 2 it seemed to lose some of its focus. For S3 they've added Sarah Shahi as a regular, even though a lot of fans weren't happy with Samantha Shaw's introduction to the show. Kevin Chapman didn't appear in the last two episodes of S2, and now we're hearing that Shahi will be on the POI Comic-Con panel, but Taraji P. Henson won't be. Is this an indication of things to come? Are the beloved Core Four being broken up for good? — Lyra

Matt Roush: I wouldn't say Person of Interest has lost its focus as much as it's refocusing and growing its world of characters to stay viable and not grow stale and predictable. Besides, no one will ever be able to convince me that adding the dynamic Sarah Shahi to a show is anything but a plus, and Shaw is one of her best roles yet. (Same goes for Amy Acker as Root, who was announced at Comic-Con as a new series regular as well.) Henson reportedly had a scheduling conflict with the Comic-Con panel, but Chapman appeared, so while the cops won't be the only characters interacting regularly with Reese and Finch, they're not going away. My advice: Let the show evolve, and hang on for the ride. Let's just hope it survives the move to Tuesdays at 10/9c, traditionally one of CBS' most problematic time periods...

Person of Interest season three premieres on NEW night, Tuesday, September 24, at a NEW time, 10/9C, on CBS.
