Once Upon a Time
The San Diego Convention Center's mammoth 4,500-seat Ballroom 20 is going to look a whole lot like Storybrooke (or is it Fairytale Land?) — hopefully minus fire-breathing dragons and eerie purple haze — on July 14 when the cast and producers of ABC's Once Upon a Time take the stage at Comic-Con International.
Co-creators Edward Kitsis and...
House's series finale ominously promised "Everybody Dies."
House comes to an end: The cast and producers recall creating a curmudgeon
But the truer message was...
Hugh Laurie, House
Bolstered by American Idol, House quickly became a huge hit. At the end of the third season — which remains the show's highest-rated — the producers blew up the formula and forced House to rebuild his entire diagnostic team. It was the first of many bold (and controversial) storytelling choices. In Part 2 of our oral history, the show's creators and cast look back at the show's most memorable plots. (Read Part 1 here.)
In the Season 3 finale, House...
House, a risky, challenging and altogether different kind of medical drama, premiered on November 16, 2004, and turned the genre on its head with a true antihero lead: a doctor who has overt disdain for his patients — and people in general. But thanks to compelling writing and a career-defining performance by British improv-comedy vet Hugh Laurie, the show stayed on the air for eight seasons of abuse (both drug and verbal) and countless diagnoses that were almost never lupus. As House prepares to sign off for good (Monday, May 21 at 8/7c on Fox), TVGuide.com talked to the show's creators and cast about building the Emmy-winning drama from the ground up. This is the first of a two-part series....
Jennifer Morrison is having quite the spring. She broke the Wicked Queen's curse on Sunday's Once Upon a Time season finale, and on Monday will reunite with the Wicked Doctor on House's series finale. I spoke with Ms. Emma Swan/Dr. Cameron about what we can expect on the emotional farewell to Princeton-Plainsboro.
After eight seasons and 177 episodes, House ends with an outbreak of poignant goodbyes. In the emotional run-up to the series finale — the episode, titled "Everybody Dies," airs May 21 at 9pm on Fox — each shooting day brought cheers, standing Os and misty-eyed send-offs. "A succession of daily memorial services, it was," as Hugh Laurie puts it. "Someone would yell, 'Hey, everybody, this is Omar Epps' last scene!' 'This is Jesse Spencer's last scene!' 'This is B camera operator's last scene.' The art director's. The sound technician's. It became hard to process all the finality."
It's amusing to imagine...
Jennifer Morrisson, Lana Parrilla

The Once Upon a Time season finale brought us back to where the ABC fairy tale drama had begun. No, we're not talking about Prince Charming (Josh Dallas) reuniting with Snow White (Ginnifer Goodwin). We're talking about the curse being unleashed again upon the town of Storybrooke just as the clock struck 8:15. Before Mr. Gold (Robert Carlyle) made us scratch our heads wondering what the heck the Once writers will do in Season 2, let's take a look back at what happened in the finale:
Jared Gilmore, Jennifer Morrison
The evil smoke monster curse is back once again in the season finale of Once Upon a Time!
Sunday's finale, "A Land Without Magic" (8/7c, ABC), brings the series full circle from when the Evil Queen (Lana Parrilla) unleashed the curse that enslaved every fairy tale character in the town of Storybrooke, forced to live unaware of their true identities. Now, Emma (Jennifer Morrison) must decide whether or not she believes, which will then determine the fate of her son, Henry (Jared Gilmore), who ate the poisonous fruit that was meant to kill Emma.

Is Chase really gone for good on House? — Christine
ADAM: Not exactly. While he has definitely resigned, executive producer David Shore confirms that Chase is scheduled to appear in the series finale. But more surprisingly, one of his colleagues might follow him out the door. In Monday's penultimate episode, another doctor is readying a career life raft in case House implodes under the strain of Wilson's increasingly grim diagnosis.
I can't believe The Vampire Diaries finale is Thursday! What will we learn from the flashback to Elena's parents' accident? — Rachel
NATALIE: For one thing...
"The last few episodes of House are all about House and Wilson, but we bring back some old friends as well," says creator David Shore. The May 14 penultimate episode sees the return of...
