Tony and Carmela's marriage got whacked on last night's killer fourth-season finale of HBO's The Sopranos. A phone call from one of Tony's scorned girlfriends pushed an already-depressed Carmela (Edie Falco, enjoying her finest hour) over the edge, setting up a fierce domestic confrontation that ended with the cheatin' mob boss (James Gandolfini) out on the street. "You have made a fool of me for years," seethed Carmela. "You've had quite a time on my watch." Other developments from Sunday's episode: Uncle Junior's trial ended with a hung jury; Tony scrapped plans to off rival boss Carmine; and Christopher was released from drug rehab. Nielsen pundits are predicting that the 75-minute climax will likely rank as the highest-rated Sopranos episode in history. We're predicting that Falco will s read more


Analyze That can fuhgetabout a No. 1 debut at the box office. The mob spoof, a sequel to 1999's Analyze This, opened in second place with a disappointing $11.3 million — $7 million less than the original took in during its first weekend. The moviegoing mob were much more loyal to James Bond, as Die Another Day reclaimed its No. 1 ranking with $13 million. Rounding out the top five: Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets (No. 3 with $10 million), John Leguizamo's new drug drama Empire (No. 4 with $6.3 million) and Disney's Treasure Planet (No. 5 with $5.7 million). read more

Elijah Wood: Ready for Life After Rings

When Elijah Wood says he's been blessed, we're inclined to agree with him. The well-adjusted 21-year-old — who's back in theaters Dec. 18 with The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers — has gracefully avoided the troubled child actor path. And better still, when his own epic trilogy completes its run (the final installment, Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King, opens Dec. 17, 2003), it seems unlikely that the versatile thesp will follow Mark Hamill's footsteps to has-beendom.

"I think I'll always be associated with [LOTR]... but that's an asset as long as it's not the only thing I'm known for," says Frodo Baggins's portrayer, who first gained res read more

Ed Lightens Up

NBC's Ed is about to turn viewers into weight watchers. In September, Michael Genadry, who plays heavyweight high schooler Mark Vanacore, underwent gastric bypass surgery, and already he's dropped 70 pounds. Now, on Tuesday's episode (airing 8 pm/ET), the 24-year-old's character will submit to the procedure, which essentially reduces the size of one's stomach. "I started off over 450, and now I'm under 400," Genadry says proudly. "I don't see a difference, but everyone around me does."

Count exec producers Jon Beckerman and Rob Burnette among that number. So amazed were they by Genadry's transformation that they felt obliged to incorporate it into Mark's story. "We didn't want to mislead the audience [into thinking] that it would be possible for somebody like Michael to lose such a large amount of weight so quickly," explains Beckerman. "If we just portrayed this as if he went on Weight Watchers, w read more

Charmed Angel Copes with Witchy Wife

Nothing against Charmed starlet Holly Marie Combs, but her Piper Halliwell has been less than charming lately. In fact, if we weren't so polite, we'd call this character something that only rhymes with witch. Is she still sad about Prue's (Shannen Doherty) demise? Or stressed out by the demons trying to kill her other sisters in sorcery week after week? Here, TV Guide Online asks Brian Krause — who plays Piper's saintly hubby, Leo — why his TV wife is such a damn shrew.

"Well, she's having a baby," he grins. Yeah, but this Wiccan witch was sportin' a snappish, abrasive 'tude well before she got preggers. "Before that?" Krause nervously replies. "I don't know. Boy, I don't know!"
