Looks like Dane's inspirational "where are they now?" package at the end of Wednesday's Biggest Loser: Couples is now a little less inspiring.
After losing 100 pounds in eight weeks, Dane was booted by his fellow competitors who believed he was a front-runner for the $250,000 grand prize. As is customary, the show followed up on Dane to see if his weight loss has continued at home. The resulting footage showed him training with his wife for a marathon, and concluded with him crossing the finish line at 3 hours and 53 minutes — a remarkable time for even trained runners.
Moving, right? Well it didn't really happen...
Sally Field, Brothers & Sisters
Anyone who's spent any time watching ABC this week has seen the promos for Sunday's two-hour Brothers & Sisters movie event. And if you're one of those people, you no-doubt saw the tagline: "A joyous birth, a shocking death, a family shaken to its roots."
We know it's always wise to take TV promos with a grain of salt, and star Rob Lowe gave us even greater reason to do so on The View Friday. "Mark Twain said there are two things you don't want to see made: laws and sausages. I would add that you don't want to see promos being made either," he said. And when asked if his character was a goner? "The show's taking a huge turn on Sunday. The storylines are going to go in a whole new direction. It's really dramatic and I'm really proud of the episode."
Yeah, yeah, fine. But who's gonna take a dirt nap, Rob? We've made the case for a few of the show's characters. Check out or theories and then tell us who you think will be checking out after the jump.

Tonight Show host Jay Leno was brought before a trial committee Wednesday to address charges that he broke the rules of the Writers' Guild of America by writing and performing monologues during the writers' strike.
These proceedings come a year after the violations in question took place. The committee suggests that Leno, who prominently backed the WGA during the work stoppage, violated the rules of the strike by performing "struck" work that would have otherwise been done by a WGA member.
