Life Unexpected

Life Unexpected
8/7c CW
The CW has not officially canceled this show, but they didn't pick up a full season of episodes for Season 2, so things don't look good for the show's fans. In this two-hour season finale, it's somewhat fitting that characters find unexpected things happening. Baze makes big plans for a future with Emma, unaware of the past she shares with his father. Then Lux arranges to enjoy a romantic meal with Eric, but is shocked when her parents arrive to throw a wrench in those plans. — Jennifer Sankowski

Piers Morgan Debuts on CNN; 25 Years To Go?

Piers Morgan

One show down. A mere 25 years to go. That's if Piers Morgan is going to last as long as the guy he's replacing on ratings-challenged CNN — Larry King.

The British host, best known in the U.S. as a judge on America's Got Talent, will now be judged. Apparently, he hopes the judges will be as kind as they were with his predecessor and first guest, Oprah Winfrey, someone else with a quarter-century endurance record on television.

Piers Morgan on the banning of Madonna, butt-kicking of CNN

Despite what he promised, Morgan displayed... read more

Life Unexpected Creator: "The Promise of the Pilot Is Paid Off in the Finale"

Life Unexpected

Although the CW's Life Unexpected has been all but canceled, creator Liz Tigelaar was tasked with writing a finale that could serve as a series-ender that would satisfy fans.

A show about two unlikely parents whose 16-year-old child enters their lives, Life Unexpected stars Shiri Appleby as Cate and Kristoffer Polaha as Baze, opposites who hooked up at the high school prom and subsequently produced a child. After giving her daughter up for adoption, Cate went on to become a successful radio host whose life with boyfriend Ryan (Kerr Smith) was rocked when said child, Lux (Britt Robertson), re-entered her life.

Syfy's Being Human Remake Won't Be Watered Down

Being Human

Syfy's Being Human remake will not water down the story lines that originated in the British series just because it's on American cable TV, the executive producers say.

When adapting the show for Syfy, executive producer Jeremy Carver wanted to stay true to the darkness in the original. "It was creating a world and situations where we didn't shy from the morally ambiguous choices that our characters have to come across day to day."
