Question: To say that I loved the season finale of Fringe would be an understatement. It was amazing! And I know I will be thinking about it all summer long, so I applaud the fantastic writers of this show. What did you think? — Rachel
Matt Roush: I thought what most of the readers of this column probably imagine I thought: Wow! As an hour of emotionally engaging and suspensefully perplexing entertainment, I thought it was a terrific way to end the show's very best season to date. (And so, it seems, did those who've weighed in so far in my mailbox.) Time paradox storylines are always tricky, and risk ...
During the final season of Entourage, which begins July 24, the naughty HBO buddy comedy will plant the seeds for Johnny's Bananas, an animated potential spin-off that would star Kevin Dillon as Johnny the Gorilla and Andrew "Dice" Clay as Ronald the Baboon. Picking up a ...

Don't expect a firestorm like in the classic Carrie, but the battle for prom queen and king intensifies as our singing heroes provide musical background for the school dance. In other musical news Tuesday night, NBC's new hit...
Reunited and it feels so good! After two years apart, former American Idol judges Paula Abdul and Simon Cowell are back together to critique a new slate of talent on Fox's X Factor (premiering this fall).
"I am beyond thrilled!" Abdul tells TV Guide Magazine during the first day of auditions in Los Angeles. "I am exhilarated. I am terrified... of Simon. I've really missed him, and I have...
Fox News anchor Bill O'Reilly is planning to guest star as himself — playing a "potential murder suspect" — on an episode of Rizzoli & Isles this coming season.
He and show creator Janet Tamaro have known each other ever since Tamaro's first TV job at Inside Edition, where they worked together. O'Reilly is also friendly with Rizzoli star Angie Harmon, an outspoken conservative.
Jacob Lusk made it all the way to American Idol's fifth place, but it was no easy road. The 23-year-old spa concierge from Compton, California, struggled to find his footing doing live performances on the Idol stage after wowing the judges early on with his off-the-charts Hollywood Week audition, "God Bless The Child."
Lusk knew he was in serious trouble Wednesday night after making song choices — like "No Air" — that were outside his R&B comfort zone. But he's not blaming anyone, including record mogul Jimmy Iovine, for pushing him in different directions. "I take full responsibility for my choices," says Lusk. "I messed up. Nobody else did"...
Patricia Heaton, The Middle
In honor of Mother's Day, let's start there. I've already penned a tribute to the mighty Mags Bennett of FX's Justified, a poison-packing mountain mama fiercely and fatally devoted to her degenerate brood, as we saw in this week's fabulous finale. Brava, Margo Martindale. But that same Wednesday night, another Midwestern mom — The Middle's Frankie Heck (Patricia Heaton) from Orson, IN — gave us a pungently funny reminder of why our moms deserve a big hug every day...
Best known for his powerful and scary mythical characters, Mark Pellegrino is just plain scary as an escaped murderer on this week's Breakout Kings (Sunday, 10/9c, A&E). The good-natured actor filled TV Guide Magazine in on his latest role and some of his favorite non-humans (Lost's Jacob, Supernatural's Lucifer and Being Human's Bishop) as well as peek at his new Fox pilot
TV Guide Magazine: So who is Virgil Downing, the latest escaped con that the Breakout Kings have to haul back to prison?
Pellegrino: He's an enigmatic assassin, an efficient killing machine. The Kings are trying to figure out why he's on a murder spree and what his victims have in common...
After 10 super seasons, Smallville flies off into the sunset next Friday (May 13, 8/7c, The CW). To make the two-hour event even more epic, fan fave — and Breaking In scene stealer — Michael Rosenbaum is back as Lex Luthor to mess with Clark one last time and to give fans what they've been asking since he left the show three years ago. In this exclusive interview, he runs down what we should expect from Lex... and the show's very last episode.
TV Guide Magazine: OK, what took so damn long?
Rosenbaum: It just never quite clicked, and I felt like I had accomplished what I needed to. I'm so flattered that the fans wanted me back, but I was busy. I was doing other things, working on me, growing my hair...
