The Thursday Playlist: Burn Notice and Other Finales, Derek on Netflix

Ricky Gervais

Fans often feel burned when the final curtain falls on a favorite show — especially when it happens unexpectedly and without resolution (just ask fans of A&E's The Glades or, even more recently, AMC's The Killing, which at least solved its third-season case before the grim fadeout). This is not the situation with USA's Burn Notice, which has been leading all summer to a calculated big finish (Thursday, 9/8c) after seven seasons of... read more

Sharon Gless Fires Up the Final Burn Notice

Sharon Gless

Guess Neil Young was right: It is better to burn out than to fade away. "We're going out with a bang," Sharon Gless says of Thursday's Burn Notice's series finale. "The last scene will matter immensely. It's gonna be shocking. People will be stunned. But there's a sweetness at the end."

Burn Notice Prepares to Say Goodbye: "I'm Really Proud of This Season," Creator Says

Jeffrey Donovan

For many Burn Notice fans, it might be hard to put the show's entire run into perspective after seven seasons and 111 episodes. Creator and executive producer Matt Nix, on the other hand, is all too familiar with just how long the long-running USA series has been around.

"My youngest son was born during the shooting of the pilot and he's now old enough to read some of the scripts," he tells TVGuide.com with a laugh. "It's very weird."

Sadly, it seems Nix's offspring will have to... read more

The Thursday Playlist: Newhart's Big Bang Triumph, NFL Kickoff, Wilfred Finale

Bob Newhart

Happy birthday, Bob Newhart! What a marvelous coincidence that his 84th birthday falls on the same night CBS is repeating his terrific Emmy-nominated guest performance on The Big Bang Theory (Thursday, 8/7c). And wouldn't it be splendid if this finally earns him an Emmy? It's unfathomable that he has yet to receive one for his illustrious career. Newhart's timing is impeccable as ever as "Professor Proton," the former TV host of a kiddie science show that Sheldon and Leonard still obsess over (so what else is new). And while they gush over meeting their hero, he's understandably much more impressed by Penny — although what she's doing with these geeky goofballs is a puzzle he'll never understand. The good news is that he's expected to return at least a few times during the next season, so maybe he'll eventually figure it out. Whatever the excuse, it's a treat to see Newhart working his magic before a live audience on one of TV's most deserving smash hits.

On Set Exclusive: Burn Notice Goes Out With a Bang

Jeffrey Donovan

It's the last day of shooting on the penultimate episode of USA's long-running spy hit Burn Notice, but if you had bet that the cast would be coasting to the finish line, you would get burned. At Burger King's former Miami headquarters — abandoned after they were damaged by Hurricane Andrew in 1992 — secret agent men Jeffrey Donovan and Bruce Campbell are lowering themselves into a man-made bay that runs alongside the industrial complex. (For Burn's purposes, it has been converted into a shady hacker's satellite-communications center.) Oh, and a real-life crocodile has made a surprise appearance, ominously swimming around in the water and, at one point, devouring a turtle.

"Is this... read more

VIDEO: Burn Notice's Jeffrey Donovan on Directing 100th Episode, Michael and Fi's Flashback

Stephen Martines, Gabrielle Anwar

Burn Notice's 100th episode brings Michael Westen back to Miami and star Jeffrey Donovan back in the director's chair — but the actor originally didn't want to helm the landmark hour.

"I actually wanted to do the [Season 7] premiere," Donovan, who previously directed two episodes and the Sam Axe movie prequel, tells TVGuide.com. "Then [creator] Matt Nix and the studio thought it would be a better ...

The Thursday Playlist: In the Flesh, Burn-Graceland Combo, TNT's Reality Adventures

In the Flesh

Zombies are hot. But leave it to the British to make them cool. And smart. And a shade more human than many of those they left behind. Turns out that being dead, or undead, is the ultimate wake-up call. While watching BBC America's fascinating and unexpectedly moving three-part miniseries In the Flesh (Thursday through Saturday, 10/9c), I was reminded less of AMC's blockbuster thriller The Walking Dead than of Sundance Channel's recent triumph, the artful Rectify, another searing drama of an outsider adjusting ...
