Jason Mesnick and Melissa, The Bachelor
Monday's ratings round-up:
The two-hour season finale of The Bachelor: Flip-Flop Edition was the night's most watched program, averaging 15.45 million total viewers — the series' best audience since Bob chose Estella in November 2003. CBS' sitcombo secured second, with Big Bang Theory holding steady at 10.94 mil and How I Met Your Mother delivering 11.08 mil.
24's White House siege averaged 11.1 mil over its two-hour run, and gained viewers each half hour. Chuck (6.6 mil) inched up a bit from last week's all-time low.
Two and a Half Men trailed The Bachelor with 15.42 million viewers (up 500K from its last fresh outing), while lead-out Rules of Engagement returned to 11.86 mil, which was good for third in its time slot. Heroes matched last week's 7 mil.
Proving that car-crash television can work, The Bachelor: After the Rose drew its largest audience ever — 17.5 million viewers. CSI: Miami settled for second with 13.3 mil, down 400 thou. Medium took a big hit, slipping 14 percent to 7.28 mil.
The premiere of Late Night with Jimmy Fallon gave NBC its highest-rated Monday Late Night in more than three years (since Jan. 16, 2006). It also bested CBS' Late Late Show and ABC's Jimmy Kimmel by margins of 35 percent and 17 percent, respectively.
Scott Wolf, Julie Bowen
From Party of Five to party of V... ? Scott Wolf has been cast on ABC's reboot of the aliens-among-us V, playing an ambitious TV newscaster who becomes a mouthpiece for the visiting ETs' agenda.
In other ABC pilot castings, Julie Bowen (you say Boston Legal or Ed, I say Lost) has landed a lead role in ...
Jason O'Mara and Harvey Keitel, Life on Mars
ABC has canceled Life on Mars, but will allow the cop drama to complete its full one-season run. The network has opted not to extend the series beyond 17 episodes, according to Variety.
It's not all bad news, though. Rather than wait until May when on-the-bubble shows are typically told whether or not they'll be renewed or canceled, ABC told the producers now, so that they can plan for a proper series finale — a courtesy not extended to the recently unplugged ABC shows Pushing Daisies, Dirty Sexy Money and Eli Stone...
Robert DeNiro and Jimmy Fallon, Late Night with Jimmy Fallon
Yeah, it used to bug me too how he cracked up all the time during SNL skits, but there's no denying that Jimmy Fallon is a funny guy. But is he late-night-talk-show funny? Let's investigate!
We're starting to see the new Melrose Place lineup take shape, but the powers that be need your help! The CW has recently green-lit the pilot, to be directed by Oscar winner Davis Guggenheim (An Inconvenient Truth — yes, you read that correctly).
First up, Swingtown's Michael Rady (he has also appeared on Greek) has signed on to fill the new "Billy" slot as an aspiring filmmaker. Next: Katie Cassidy, Supernatural's demon Ruby and a cast member of CBS' upcoming Harper's Island (which, if you've read anything about the horror-mystery drama, chances are she dies, so don't worry), is playing a character that sounds a lot like Amanda Woodward.
Rumors persist that the producers are actively pursuing Grant Show and Heather Locklear to reprise their roles from the original. Then there is that pesky Mischa Barton rumor.
But before things get out of hand, let's offer them our two cents, shall we? Read on to see who we think should join the new Melrose cast...
Brad Hunt and Victoria Hunt
It was gypsies, vamps and a really bad flight on Sunday's Amazing Race 14 that saw married couple Brad and Victoria Hunt eliminated. The duo opted for an earlier flight to Bucharest, Romania with a connection through Amsterdam — which would've worked out well if they hadn't missed the connection. Was the slim, 15-minute advantage they would've gotten worth the risk? They think so. Find out what else the couple had to say about their unlucky fate, why the leg was still the best part of the Race for them and what new challenges they're currently facing.
Gregory "Dane" Patterson
When Dane Patterson left The Biggest Loser: Couples, he had no idea what drama was to come. After being eliminated in week 8, the same week he broke a Biggest Loser record, Patterson went on to complete a marathon back at home. But after the episode aired with his "where are they now?" piece depicting him crossing the finish line with a time of 3:53, it was revealed that it was actually 5:53, and that he had been driven three of those miles to finish in under six hours. TVGuide.com caught up with the 27-year-old real estate appraiser on how he feels about cheating those 3 miles, why he's proud that Bob wanted to vote him out and what his progress has been at home.
Ray Wise, Reaper
Ray Wise has a legendary gift for diabolical roles — he played the character, after all, who committed perhaps the most famous murder in television history. Wise is marking his 40th year since his first film — Dare the Devil — by continuing his turn as The Devil himself in the second season of the CW's Reaper (premiering Tuesday at 8 pm/ET).
Bob Gunton, Cherry Jones, James Morrison, 24
This Monday, Fox's 24 delivers double the Bauer with a two-hour event kicking off at 8 pm/ET. The occasion? None other than the disgruntled General Juma's extremely bold attack on a Washington, D.C., landmark.
Indeed, just when you thought 24 had attempted it all, the writers push that envelope just a bit more. And further ratcheting the tension? Savior-by-trade Jack Bauer is thrown behind bars at a critical juncture.
"We're so proud of these [episodes]," executive producer Howard Gordon shares with TVGuide.com. "We've been looking forward to this week."
Gordon says the two-hour outing serves a specific purpose, in that it ...
