On Sunday's season finale of True Blood, at least three, possibly four former cast members, previously thought to be dead, or as dead as one can be on this show, returned for an extra-spooky, Halloween-set season finale. Great, you think, just what this show needs, more characters. But wait! This episode also has a steep body count, my friends. At least four series regulars appeared to die during this hour. It's really hoary cliff-hanger stuff that will continue to enrage you for the next 10 months or so until True Blood's fifth season is finally upon us. Who died? Who was resurrected? Let's do this: I'll tell you what happened during this jam-packed hour, and then I'll make some wildly speculative predictions about Season 5. Then you let me know if you agree in the comments section below. Deal?
On Sunday's episode of Desperate Housewives, Susan has trouble with a client. Bree and Keith discover a fundamental sexual incompatibility. Tom invites his mother (guest star Lois Smith) to visit to help Lynette with the baby. And Gaby and Renee discover they have a lot in common, including their love for ruining other people lives, which can mean only one thing: catfight!
I'll post a full recap later, but in the meantime please use this space for your thoughts on "Let Me Entertain You."

Eva Longoria Parker
The cocktails flow and so do the secrets on Sunday at 9/8c on ABC when Desperate Housewives' Gaby (Eva Longoria Parker) and Renee (Vanessa Williams) go on a bender to celebrate Renee's impending divorce and end up sharing ultra-private intel about each other. After sobering up, they go blabbing...
On the dusty expanse of suburbia that is Wisteria Lane, Vanessa Williams is ready to duel at 40 paces.
Desperate Housewives has always relied on a fun, trouble-making foil to shake up the staid suburban lives of the women of Wisteria Lane — think Edie, Mrs. Huber, Karl, may they all rest in peace. This season, ABC has employed a Wild West theme to announce the arrival of Renee Perry (Williams), who'll try on a (very chic) black hat. Executive producer Bob Daily introduces us to Renee, and tells us what all the other ladies — and at least one familiar gentleman — will deal with this season.

Who's zooming who when Glee comes back? — Cathleen
MICKEY: Finn is all about Rachel in Season 2, according to Lea Michele. "They're very much in love," she tells us, and, brace yourself, kind of into PDA. On the other hand, Jenna Ushkowitz hints at an upcoming romantic tangle for Artie and Tina. "Artie didn't give her what she wanted, so there's a love triangle," she tells us. "She's going to make Artie work for it." Who's the other lucky guy? Two words: Other Asian.
So excited about the Grey's Anatomy wedding. How will the other docs react? — Abby
ADAM: Well, Meredith isn't exactly...
Let's hope she fares better in Fairview than she did in Bon Temps.
After being brutally butchered in True Blood's first season as Sookie and Jason Stackhouse's Granny Adele, veteran actress Lois Smith is headed to Wisteria Lane. Lois, 79, will debut in...
Stephen Moyer in True Blood by Jaimie Trueblood/HBO
Feels like old times, having a Sunday HBO lineup to get excited about again. But excited I am, having seen the first five episodes of the wildly entertaining new vampire mystery/romance/comedy/thriller hybrid True Blood, and the first four episodes of Entourages much-improved fifth season.I posted my initial thoughts on True Blood in a Dispatch filed shortly after HBOs presentation during TCA press tour this summer, at which time I had screened the first two episodes. Since then, Ive watched more and have also devoured the first two books in Charlaine Harris Sookie Stackhouse series, which are also great fun. (Season one of True Blood roughly tracks the plot of Harriss first volume, Dead Until Dark.) All I can say is: Im hooked.Alan Balls colorful adaptation goes way over the top as only pay cable can do, both in terms of sexuality (especially where Sookies horndog brother is concerned) and in terms of broadly played Southern caricatur...
Happy New Year ER After a wonderful though repeat-filled holiday season it is nice to settle into 2007 with some fresh story lines isnt it And how great to have an episode that shined the spotlight squarely on our dear Dr Kerry Weaver But more on that later Okay Ive been on the fence all season about John Stamos Tony Gates and tonight Ive finally decided I really dont like him In numerous articles and commentaries Ive read about this season people have compared this character to George Clooneys flawed but immensely appealing Doug Ross I dont know if it was the way that character was written or the charisma and soulfulness that Clooney brought to the role but even at his lowest I dont ever remember Doug coming off as so unlikable and I say that with the knowledge that he charmed and bedded many random women before impregnating his long-suffering formerly suicidal girlfriend with twins and leaving her to
Hours after the effects of the tryptophan from the fabulous Thanksgiving dinner I had with friends wore off, I gave thanks for a new episode of Grey's. This episode was anything but a turkey. How many of you were screaming "yes!" to the TV as soon as you heard Sandra Oh's voice in the opening narration rather than Ellen Pompeo's? Not that I dislike Meredith Grey being the show's narrator it is called Greys Anatomy. But it's a nice diversion when someone else takes over for a change. Last time this happened, it was T.R. Knight's narrative voice and I remember how most of you were thrilled and only a few of you insisted on having it be Meredith's voice. It made such good sense for Cristina to narrate at the opening and closing of the show since it was a heavily Cristina-centric episode. In fact, the entire super-sized hour and 10 minutes made such good sense, I kept thinking how satisfied I was. In fact, in the spirit of Thanksgiving, I'd like to send a thank you note to ...
