It was perhaps last season's boldest finale. After three seasons, The Mentalist's Patrick Jane (Simon Baker) finally came face-to-face with the man he believed to be Red John (guest-star Bradley Whitford), the serial killer who killed Jane's wife and daughter. The two had a long, intense conversation as Jane tried to confirm that he was indeed in the presence of his nemesis. Once he did just that, Jane took his vengeance, shooting the man in broad daylight and surrendering himself to the authorities that came charging in.
Spoiler alert: Simon Baker talks about The Mentalist's shocking season finale
But did he really kill Red John? And if so, what does that mean for both Jane's future (is he going to jail?) and the show's long-term goals? TVGuide.com chatted with creator and executive producer Bruno Heller to get the answers...
Parenthood, Dax Shepard and Joy Bryant
When Parenthood closed the book on Season 2, estranged couple Crosby (Dax Shepard) and Jasmine (Joy Bryant) were seen talking and laughing together inside his newly purchased house — the same house he bought to win her back — after months of estrangement. Their relationship seemed to be on the mend, but things aren't what they seem between the one-time lovebirds.
"When we start this season, things have not worked...
MasterChef, Joe Bastianich and Graham Elliot
Hello MasterChef fans,
What a night! Rounding out the Top 10 of this competition, we are left with some serious contenders, all getting closer to some serious prize money. This motley crew includes an architect, former beauty queen, neural engineer, and a Florida homemaker (with more affinity for the F-word than Gordon!), all of whom found themselves with another mystery box and elimination challenge, this time of much more intricate fare.
Preparing lobster and truffles requires a certain amount of sophistication, something that all of our remaining contestants should have in the kitchen, and as we'd hoped, everyone seemed reasonably comfortable -- enough to get right to work. With Christian clearly having the most experience with lobster, Gordon, Graham, and myself were especially looking forward to what he'd come up with. What we didn't want was more of the same nasty attitude that he's been increasingly throwing our way as we narrow things down.
Lisa Kudrow, Web Therapy
Fiona Wallice is affected, self-entitled and narcissistic. She is a former businesswoman who stumbled into therapy and then when she found other people's lives too tedious to tolerate, she modified her job into a new "treatment modality," she calls "Web Therapy." Give her three minutes and she'll give you ... something, even if it's just further confusion.
Fiona is the character Lisa Kudrow developed alongside Don Roos and partner Dan Bucatinsky for Web Therapy, an Internet series that bowed on L/Studio in three-minute bursts in 2008, and has now been converted into a cable series for Showtime by combining webisodes and fleshing out previously unseen aspects of Fiona's personal life.
At the show's heart is Kudrow, who spends nary a minute off-screen. Web Therapy (Tuesday, 11/10c, Showtime) finds Kudrow doing that thing that is uniquely hers...
After a year of playing a blind man on Covert Affairs, Christopher Gorham had to set his sights on a new challenge: playing the same man sighted.
"It was so strange. It didn't feel like Auggie!" Gorham tells TVGuide.com. "I had to remind myself that I could ...
How I Met Your Mother
Whoever thought Barney Stinson was the marrying kind? But more importantly — who is he marrying?
How I Met Your Mother's season finale opened up a whole new mystery while still evading the original one regarding the identity of the titular mother. But creator/executive producer Craig Thomas assures TVGuide.com that Season 7 will offer answers and even more changes for our beloved quintet. Robin gets a new love interest for one (hello, Kal Penn! Goodbye, Michael Trucco!), Marshall gets a new job, of course, and "Ted Mosby, Architect" will finally be a great pickup line. Don't believe us? Keep reading...
Rebecca Black has come a long way since "Friday."
The 14-year-old singer, whose much-mocked "Friday" is the most-watched YouTube clip of all time with more than 167 million views, has released a new single called "My Moment."
The "success" of her first song inspired a number of covers (notably by Glee and Stephen Colbert and Jimmy Fallon) and countless parodies. She also appeared in Katy Perry's new video. However, the video for "Friday" was pulled off YouTube in June, leaving us "Friday"-less.
Check out the rest of today's news
Now, Black is back and sticking it to the naysayers in her new single by boasting that this is her moment: Weren't you the one who said that I would be nothing / Well I'm about to prove you wrong.
To be fair, the lyrics...
