Question: I know you weren't too fond of the final season of Entourage (to put it nicely), but I was curious if you thought Jeremy Piven's work this year was worthy of an Emmy nomination? — Joe

Matt Roush: Sure. I wouldn't mind seeing him get one last nomination. He used to own that supporting comedy actor category, winning three in a row before he dropped off the radar (along with the show), part of the backlash ...

Scoop on The Good Wife, Glee and More

Alan Cumming

Emmy Weekend kicked off with the Performers Nominee Reception, hosted by the Television Academy, on September 16. The honored actors were so thrilled to be part of the group they couldn't help but share some scoop.

Mary McDonnell said the remaining episodes of The Closer's final season are going to be intense. "I think it could get very, very heavy. Peter Goldman seems to have some kind of vendetta. He has too much information on Brenda that could be seen through a negative lens. And for some reason he's going at it. read more

Question: WOW is the main word I use for Breaking Bad so far this season! I am amazed how FAST this season started up and I know it will get better and better!

The Closer Creator Previews "Repeat Offender" and Reacts to Emmy Nominations

Mary McDonnell and Kyra Sedgwick

Of all the finer, more civilized traits that combine to form the enchantment of love — perhaps none is more central than trust. In "Repeat Offender," The Closer examines exactly how much we can believe in our families, spouses, bosses, friends and even destiny itself. Reversals of fortune abound, and no one seems more taken off-guard by fate's shifting winds than Brenda's sometimes antagonist, Captain Sharon Raydor. Tracking our way through the untimely death of a young house-and-baby sitter — that person to whom we entrust our children and most personal possessions — we worry our way to the final moment, where we face the most uncomfortable question of all: "Do I trust myself?" We leave Deputy Chief Johnson pondering this disturbing concept in a powerful episode.... read more

The Closer's Final Season: Is Brenda Ready to Call It Quits?

The Closer

The beginning of the end is here for The Closer: After six seasons, Emmy winner Kyra Sedgwick is only 21 episodes away from turning in her badge as Deputy Chief Brenda Leigh Johnson. And series creator and executive producer James Duff says it's going to be an emotional ride.

"The theme of this season is love and loss," Duff tells TVGuide.com. "Loss is part of the promise of love. The only promise that you ever get with love, is that it will end. So we wanted to incorporate how much we loved doing these stories: how much Brenda loved her job, how much she cared about her part in the justice system, and how much it would mean to her to step away from all of that."
