Zachary Levi, Chuck
NBC and Warner Bros. have hammered out a deal that will bring back Chuck, Sarah et al for a third season of at least 13 episodes, sources tell TVGuide.com.
As reported on Sunday, this new life does come with a price, however. Or, specifically ...
Zachary Levi and Yvonne Strahovski
Chuck fans' consumption of all those Subway foot longs may pay off before NBC is slated to announce the rest of its fall season lineup.
A Season 3 pick-up could come as early as Sunday evening, as NBC and Warner Bros. attempt to hammer out the final details of a deal that would further whittle down ...
How Friday's fare fared:
Ghost Whisperer's season finale scared up 8.93 million total viewers, dipping 5 percent week-to-week. America's Funniest Home Videos' own season-ender placed second with 5.64 mil, followed by Dateline.
Prison Break's final farewell drew 3.33 mil, up 10 percent, while The Game blew the whistle on its own season with 1.86 mil. (And yes, that episode was a taste of how the show would work as a single-camera, hour-long dramedy.)
NBC's Farrah's Story doc averaged 8.94 million viewers over its two-hour run, and topped the 9 o'clock hour. Flashpoint followed with 8.42 mil.
Numbers was the night's most watched program, scoring 9.6 million viewers for its season finale.
Saturday Night Live, hosted by Will Ferrell and featuring musical guest Green Day, matched the show's year-ago closer to equal its best overnight rating for a season finale in four years. The last SNL finale to rate higher was the May 21, 2005 telecast hosted by Lindsay Lohan.

David Boreanaz and Emily Deschanel, Bones
Capping one of the upfront season's most prolonged back-and-forths over the licensing fee paid by the network to the studio, Fox has decided to renew Bones — for a fifth and sixth season.
Executive producer Hart Hanson announced the pick-up on Saturday, via his Twitter account. Later, Hanson confirmed that Fox had ordered not just one but two more seasons.
Bones likely will air on ...
Kelsey Grammer, Courteney Cox Arquette and Reiko Aylesworth
ABC greenlit a half-dozen new series on Friday, bringing the network's total of newcomers for the 2009-10 TV season to eight.
Make the jump to see what, in addition to the previously ordered comedy Modern Family and the action-drama Flash Forward, is new to ABC's schedule.
Scrubs' Zach Braff, Castle's Nathan Fillion
ABC has been A Busy Company. The network on Friday renewed four more series, including Scrubs and the freshman series Castle and Better Off Ted, sources tell TVGuide.com. Also due back for the 2009-10 season is the Ashton Kutcher-produced reality show True Beauty.
ABC, however, is not officially confirming any new pick-ups until its May 19 upfront presentation.

We're finally here, folks! It's the two-hour season finale of Desperate Housewives, which is technically two self-contained, one-hour episodes — so I've recapped them separately. Bree and Orson's divorce battle heats up fo' realz, with Karl on the scene stoking the fire with devilish glee. Gaby and Carlos inherit an unruly teenager. Lynette receives some life-changing news from the doctor, just as Tom's midlife crisis pops up again. Plus, Lily Tomlin is back to help the idiot cops connect the dots of Dave Williams' murderous plan for revenge, which finally kicks into gear. Its resolution is somewhat surprising, in that its aftermath prompts further revelations that set up interesting developments for Season 6. Read on to find out how it all went down...
Sarah Wayne Callies and Wentworth Miller
Fox's Prison Break wrapped up its four-year run (and run, and run, and run...) on Friday night, as Michael finally decided into whose hands he could entrust Scylla. Along the way, a pair of familiar faces resurfaced, justice was meted out, and, in a four-year flash-forward, a variety of fates were revealed.
It was during that epilogue that the producers uncorked one final — and fatal — twist. If you have finished watching the two-hour series-ender, read on for executive producer Matt Olmstead's answers to the burning questions you likely have.
After America's Next Top Model crowned Teyona Anderson as its 12th cycle winner on Wednesday, TVGuide.com caught up with the New Jersey native to get the scoop on what it was like getting greased up to writhe around on the final runway — and to lose her fake hair in the middle of it! Plus: Find out what the 20-year-old had to say about the Celia catfight and what's next for her.
TVGuide.com: Congratulations! What was going through your head during that final runway walk-off?
Teyona Anderson: The only thing I was thinking going down the catwalk was, "Teyona, don't fall!" Other than that, I kept thinking, "Teyona, it's in your hand right now, but it's so easy to lose, so focus and do your hardest and try your best."
TVGuide.com: How about the final leg of runway where you guys got greased up and started writhing around on the catwalk?
Teyona: I was thinking ...
Michael Strahan, Eliza Dushku
Fox is leaving precious little to be revealed at its official Monday upfront presentation of its fall schedule.

Meanwhile, on the renewal front, sources tell TVGuide.com that Dollhouse is now "looking really good" for a Season 2. Created by Joss Whedon and starring Eliza Dushku, Dollhouse ...
