Is It Just Me: A Top Chef Medical Mystery

Jamie Lauren

Did Top Chef All-Stars' Jamie wimp out over her injury?

On the December 8 episode of Top Chef, Jamie Lauren sliced open her finger while cooking during a challenge — not an uncommon occurrence around these parts — and temporarily left the competition to get the injury stitched up. Seems reasonable, no?

Cut to the disapproving grumbling from her comrades... read more

Previewing Dexter's Killer Finale

Dexter

Girls are being raped, tortured and stuffed into barrels. A self-help guru named Jordan (Jonny Lee Miller) is definitely up to no good. And somehow, Dexter Morgan (Michael C. Hall) and his new partner-in-crime, Lumen (Julia Stiles), are finding time for a little nookie.

It's been a bloody good run this season on Dexter, and the finale is shaping up to be a jab-and-stabber of epic proportions. "Usually, Dexter is alone in seeking vengeance, but now he's got Lumen at his side so it's double the trouble," says executive producer Sara Colleton.

Last year's shocking finale ... read more

Shane Brennan on the Future of NCIS and NCIS: LA

NCIS

Season 8 of NCIS has almost reached its halfway point, but when the CBS procedural returns with new episodes in January, there's plenty more action in store.

The Fur Flies on Tonight's Vampire Diaries

The Vampire Diaries

The moon is full and the wolves are howling in The Vampire Diaries' final new episode until January (airing tonight at 8/7c on The CW). No one in Mystic Falls — good or bad, human or supernatural — is safe. "Elena takes it all on herself," says Nina Dobrev, who does double-duty as the selfless heroine ready to do whatever it takes to save her loved ones and as Katherine, the seductive, selfish vampire currently stashed in the town's blood-sucker tomb. While Elena is in deep emotional pain, "everyone thinks she's unstable," says Dobrev.

Meanwhile, Tyler (Michael Trevino) is in physical hell as he endures his first werewolf transformation... read more

Kurt Sutter Previews What's Next for Sons of Anarchy

Charlie Hunnam

The third season of Sons of Anarchy saw the motorcycle gang travel to Ireland and back, and ended with many of them going to prison. But while Jax (Charlie Hunnam) and Clay (Ron Perlman) patch up their relationship in jail, Tara finds out that Jax's deceased father and former leader of the motorcycle club feared that he would be killed by Clay and Gemma. We asked SOA creator Kurt Sutter about where he wants to take the fourth season, and when viewers can expect the crap to hit the fan... read more

Burn Notice Creator Teases Finale

Burn Notice

Another explosive season of Burn Notice is about to come to an end, but executive producer Matt Nix promises there are plenty of fireworks in store for the two-hour season finale, airing Dec. 16 at 9/8c on USA Network. "Both of the episodes that run back to back are two of my favorite episodes ever," Nix told TV Guide Magazine at the HRTS Hitmakers Luncheon on December 8. "One is really a battle for Michael's soul. And the finale, I think, is our most action packed and romantic episode yet."

For fans wanting closure, that's exactly what they're going to get.... read more

Watercooler: The Beekman Boys Fabulous Holiday Special

Fabulous Beekman Boys

Ok, if you don't know who the Fabulous Beekman Boys are, a) that's a damn shame and b) fix that. Imagine the spawn of Charles Nelson Reilly and Tim Gunn as raised by Martha Stewart, and you have Josh Kilmer-Purcell and Brent Ridge, partners in life and an upstate New York organic farm who left the big city for the Green Acres life. In the first season of their eponymous reality show (round two begins in the new year), these two not only won us over with their copious amounts of charm, cheek and fish-out-of-water wackiness, they also made uppity llamas and homemade goat cheese must-see TV.

And last night, the sassy ones popped back up to make festive fabulous with a holiday special that was equal parts outtake clipfest and viewer-mail quipfest, with a few how-to hoots — their "obligatory holiday craft segments" — featuring fruitcake tutorials and wreath-making tips thrown in for good measure... read more
