Charlie Hunnam, Dayton Callie
The price of power sits heavy on the shaggy head of Jax Teller (Charlie Hunnam), the prince-turned-leader of a troubled biker kingdom on FX's Sons of Anarchy, wrapping its fifth and best-yet season tonight with a super-sized 90-minute finale (10/9c). A few weeks ago, in a moment worthy of this series' Shakespearian ambitions, Jax told his disgraced, dethroned evil stepfather Clay (Ron Perlman): "I'm tired of being crushed under the weight of greedy men who believe in nothing."

Vicki Lawrence will make a rare TV appearance as her old Carol Burnett Show/Mama's Family character, Thelma Harper, on Logo's RuPaul's All Stars Drag Race this season, which begins October 22.
"RuPaul knew details of the Burnett Show that even surprised me," says Lawrence, (here pictured with the out-of-drag host). "He's a real aficionado of the show."

In case you haven't seen the incessant promos during the MLB playoffs and Conan, GD is a new sitcom about a group of freshmen rushing a fraternity at an Indiana university in 1986. (Unfortunately, there's nothing rushed about the show — it's an hourlooong show, a fact the ads fail to mention.) No collegiate-comedy cliché goes unturned, from the shtick-figure characters — the virgin, the jock, the stoner — to the predictable debauchery, with gag topics running the gamut from bongs to beer bongs...

SNL alum Oteri spoke to TV Guide on Tuesday, Oct. 30, at the premiere of her indie film Park (which also stars Dirty Sexy Moneys William Baldwin, and Ricki Lake).
