On Broadway: Gilmore Girl Graham Is Guys' Main Doll

Lauren Graham

Could it be that the never-heard last three words of Gilmore Girls were, "Fugue for Tinhorns"? (So-so joke? Sue me, sue me....)

Mega Buzz on Lost, House, NCIS, Gossip Girl & More!

Lost, House and NCIS

Senior editors Matt Webb Mitovich and Mickey O'Connor answer your burning questions. Be sure to direct any new seekage of spoilers to mega_scoop@tvguide.com

I have this nagging feeling that Lost from here on will focus on the Oceanic 6, at the expense of the people - my Sawyer included! - left on the island. Please tell me I'm wrong. - Lauren
Matt: I take great pleasure in telling you that you are wrong. I then laugh derisively in your general direction. Have no fear, Lauren, the left-behinders will get plenty of air time. In fact, a (probably well-tanned) setsider tells me that Elizabeth Mitchell, for one, has never had more to do and as such is busier than a one-armed paperhanger. But is she getting busy with Your Sawyer? That's the question.

After "The Kiss," can we expect a House-Cuddy romance to bloom? - Mandy
Mickey: As I learned the hard way one hot summer night in July 1987, a kiss does not necessarily equal a relationship. Then ask yourself ... read more

Private Practice's KaDee Strickland Shares Her Sexy Secrets

KaDee Strickland, Private Practice

To put it simply, Private Practice's KaDee Strickland never saw it coming. Yet here her stern Charlotte is, falling into something ever-so-slightly resembling (gulp) love with Paul Adelstein's Cooper. What's beneath the good doc's steely exterior? (Other than naughty lingerie, if that?) Strickland shared a peek at Charlotte's inner demons, then teases an emotional medical story to come. (ABC's Private Practice airs Wednesdays at 9 pm/ET/)

TVGuide.com: First things first: Can you set the record straight on the Private Practice publicity stills? You're standing in front a wall of rocks, right? And not a wall of potatoes?
KaDee Strickland:
That is true. [Laughs] But that's hilarious, it does look like a bunch of potatoes. You're not a liar.

TVGuide.com: It never dawned on me until we ran Chris Lowell's photo the other day and one of our readers pointed it out. "Why is he standing in front of potatoes?"
Strickland:
Because we're in hard times over there at Oceanside Wellness.... It was actually pretty beautiful, the set-up. Our pictures came out great, but I want you to know that you just ruined it for me ... read more

Britney Spears' Father Named Permanent Conservator

Britney Spears

Britney Spears may be making a strong comeback — most recently evident with her skin-baring video for "Womanizer" — but the pop star isn't exposing herself to the risks of full independence just yet.

A Los Angeles court ruled Tuesday that her father, Jamie, has been named permanent co-conservator of her estate with attorney Andrew Wallet. The two were tasked with taking charge of Spears' affairs when she was first hospitalized last winter.

"The court finds the proposed permanent conservatorship is necessary and appropriate," Los Angeles Superior Court Commissioner Reva Goetz, who has been presiding over the case in recent months, said at the hearing.

Notably, Spears was in favor of the renewal of the conservatorship, which might indicate a growing desire to take care of herself since her darker days.
