In the second part of our farewell to Fringe, producers and cast discuss the introduction of the parallel universe, which opened up the world of Fox's sci-fi drama to new and exciting possibilities, including a new set of characters with names like Walternate and Bolivia that fans would — gasp! — actually come to love in the end...
A mad scientist, his genius prodigal son and a noble FBI agent compose the surrogate family at the core of Fox's supernatural drama Fringe that, under the direction of sci-fi kingpin J.J. Abrams (Lost), struggled through five low-rated seasons of endlessly fascinating twists and turns that, quite literally, attempted to tell the story of the universe, er, universes. It will all come to an auspicious end Friday at 8/7c, in what devotees hope will be a satisfying ending to the little series that could...
In the end, Leverage executive producer Dean Devlin made the right call.
What were the best TV shows of 2012?
Earlier this month, Devlin penned a letter to fans explaining that, because the creative team hadn't received an early Season 6 renewal from TNT, the Season 5 finale was designed to tell the story the writers always envisioned as the series finale. Last week, TNT decided to end the show, which proved Devlin & Co.'s fan-first instincts correct.
"If you try to anticipate something and it doesn't happen, you may let people down who stuck with you for 77 episodes," Devlin told TVGuide.com before the cancellation became official...
"Are you alone?"
That was the rather loaded question facing Mad Men's Don Draper (Jon Hamm) as the AMC drama ended its fifth season. Would Don, who had finally given into his wife Megan's desire to be an actress by getting her a job in a shoe commercial, go back to his philandering ways?
Mad Men Finale: Chasing phantoms and being alone
"When you see the face of Don at the end of the last episode, you say, "Oh, that's where that guy's been," creator Matthew Weiner tells TVGude.com. "I recognize him."
But Weiner says that doesn't mean Don is just going to throw his marriage out the window...
Josh Hopkins, Courteney Cox
Our favorite wine-guzzling cul-de-sac crew is headed for some major changes on Cougar Town — and we're not just talking about the recent passing of Big Carl (R.I.P old friend!) Tuesday's hour-long season finale (8/7c on ABC) will see the gang migrate west to Napa for Jules (Courteney Cox) and Grayson's (Josh Hopkins) wedding. But will they actually tie the knot?
Behind the scenes, the episode marks the comedy's last hurrah on ABC before it moves to TBS for Season 4. The change also includes a new showrunner who will take over the day-to-day duties from co-creators and executive producers Bill Lawrence and Kevin Biegel. But fans should rest assured: Lawrence and Biegel aren't going anywhere. Lawrence talked with TVGuide.com about the wedding-themed season finale, the move to TBS, his involvement next season and why Big Carl had to go...
Emily VanCamp, Mariska Hargitay, Anna Paquin

Is there anything you can tell us about the Revenge finale? — Ginny
NATALIE: Can you hear me now? No? That's basically the problem in the season finale. "Dropped calls!" Connor Paolo teases. "The importance of picking up the phone when people call!" Adds Gabriel Mann: "Sometimes it might be real important!" What does it all mean? What's in Nolan's immediate future? "A lot of blood," Mann says. Gulp!
Any clues about SVU's big cliff-hanger? — Devon
ADAM: Remember the infamous "horse's head" scene in The Godfather? Well, replace the horse's head with...
Gabriel Mann and Emily VanCamp
Murder, blackmail, drug use, infidelity, theft — the first season of Revenge has had it all. But will the primetime soap be able to up the ante for season finale (Wednesday at 10/9c on ABC)? For star Josh Bowman, that's a silly question.
"There's death, there's possible breakups. Everything is tested — every relationship and character," Bowman tells TVGuide.com. "There are about four episodes crammed into one. It's amazing."
So what else is in store for Emily (Emily VanCamp), the Graysons and their friends, enemies and frenemies during the freshman soap's final hurrah? Find out below...
After a streak of four male winners in the past four years, the eleventh season of American Idol could be the year a girl triumphs. That's what music producer and Idol mentor Jimmy Iovine thinks anyway.
"Jessica [Sanchez] is born with one of those gifts that you see very, very rarely -- the tone of her voice, the range, her poise," Iovine told reporters on a call Monday. "She has every chance to win this thing because she can strike a chord in you with the right song that, no matter what you think before that, you're going to vote for her. She can change your mind on a dime because those voices don't come around every day. There are so few people who can sing like that in the industry today.
