Spotted: Viewers laughing our blogs off at last night's Gossip Girl season ender.
True story. From Eric's "I'm still gay," to the fawning Constance girls, to Georgina's "I haven't been this bored since I believed in Jesus," to Serena's "I'd ask how you are, but I don't really care," the episode (written by series exec producer Joshua Safran) was packed with zingers as sharp as the costumes were insane. Really, does anyone dress better for a night out than these people?...
Today news anchor Ann Curry's passport has been given a workout in recent years as she's traveled the world to report on the genocide in Darfur, the earthquakes in Japan and Haiti (where, with a Tweet, she helped get clearance for the landing of a plane carrying medical assistance) and, most recently, Pakistan during the days that followed the killing of Osama bin Laden. On June 9, the intrepid Curry will settle in behind the big desk of NBC's top-rated morning show, where she'll succeed Meredith Vieira as Matt Lauer's coanchor. We talked with her about her upcoming new role.
TV Guide Magazine: What are you looking forward to most in your new job?
Curry: I concentrate so hard on the news of the world and constantly looking for illumination ...
Can we just end it now?
Last night, Desperate Housewives closed up its seventh season with a two-hour endurance challenge that was as stretched out as it was a stretch. Oooh, "someone is gonna die." Really? What a shock. It's not like that doesn't ...
NBC's decision to turn singing competition The Sing-Off into a weekly series might be the biggest surprise of the new fall season. But it was a move that came only after intense debate inside the Peacock network over how and when to air a second ...
Even with so many season finales and cliffhangers clamoring for our attention this month, I doubt you'll find two hours of TV more riveting, harrowing and inspiring than Freedom Riders, the latest triumph from PBS' American Experience series.
As heralded recently ...

Question: The recent cancellation of almost all of Fox's bubble shows seems to stem at least partially from a lack of "shelf space," since they don't program shows in the 10 pm/ET hour. My question is, why not? There must be a story here, though being 22, I haven't been watching adult-skewing prime-time shows long enough to remember it, so please enlighten me. I am ...
TV Guide Magazine: There was some concern that Terra Nova might be pushed back again, given the previous delays on the show. Is it ready to go, and why did you decide to kick off Mondays with it?
Kevin Reilly: We've been sitting on this show, producing it for a while and it's been a big undertaking. It's ...
With her final story arc on TNT's The Closer kicking off this summer, Kyra Sedgwick isn't plotting a happily-ever-after for her crimefighting character, Brenda Johnson. "I would like to end Brenda's story in a dark way," the Emmy winner says.

Castle (Monday, 10/9c, ABC)
This week is a smorgasbord of season (and in some cases, possibly series) finales, and Monday is overstuffed with them, including CBS's comedies, a Chuck wedding on NBC, a 90210 graduation on the CW, and a showdown with the legendary villain Wo Fat capping the first season of Hawaii Five-0.
