Rescue Me's Final Season: Can Tommy Gavin Survive?

As FX's firefighter drama Rescue Me begins its final season Wednesday (10/9c), it must contend with the question that has loomed over the series like a black cloud of smoke since Episode 1: Will there come a day when reckless hero Tommy Gavin won't come out of a burning building alive?

Summer TV: Get scoop on your favorite returning shows

Of course, fire isn't his only vice. Although Tommy (Denis Leary) survived the rescue effort on 9/11, his battle with alcohol and his revolving door of women have put him a number of situations that were just as life-threatening as running into the World Trade Center. So, after six years of ghosts, sex and gallons of booze, is there any chance Tommy escapes the series with a pulse?

"Obviously, you want to make sure it's a satisfying end of the journey for the viewers," co-creator and executive producer Peter Tolan tells TVGuide.com... read more

Roush Review: Rescue Me and Damages

This is a bittersweet night for FX, as it prepares to bid farewell to one of its longtime signature series — the bawdy firehouse dramedy Rescue Me, whose seventh and final season will wrap this fall to coincide with the 10th anniversary of 9/11 — and in an ironic twist, it's going head to head against a new season of Damages, the riveting legal thriller the network dropped after three low-rated seasons, but which was rescued from oblivion by DirecTV. (Unlike the Friday Night Lights situation, in which NBC aired the show after the DirecTV run, Damages will air exclusively on DirecTV. So if you're not a subscriber, it won't be that tough a choice.)

The charismatic actor first broke out as teenage gangsta O-Dog in the Hughes Brothers' 1993 inner-city saga. Since then, he's mostly played nice guys in movies like Love Jones and on TV series like FX's Rescue Me. The cable net's top-notch crime drama let Tate cross over to the wrong side of the law as a violent convict who flees a halfway house — and who happens to be the ex-brother-in-law of Deputy U.S. Marshal Rachel Brooks (Erica Tazel). She teams with Raylan Givens (Timothy Olyphant) to track him down.... read more

Rescue Me Star: Colleen's a "Whore in the Home"

"It's not easy dealing with a Gavin!" Rescue Me star Larenz Tate tells TVGuide.com. Truer words were never spoken. Tate's alter ego, Black Shawn, still has a wild relationship with Colleen Gavin (Natalie Distler). And last week he endured a decidedly un-P.C. hose-down from her father, Tommy (Denis Leary). It's just going to get more dramatic this week when Shawn attends a Gavin family dinner at the request of Colleen's sister. Tate offers a preview of what's to come.
