J.J. Abrams is heading back to an island, just not the island.
"In theory, any land mass is an island, so you could argue that every show ever made [is like Lost]," Abrams told reporters at the winter TV previews. "The Mary Tyler Moore Show was much like Lost!"
That said, the man who brought ABC's island mystery to life has set his sights on another land mass for Fox's Alcatraz.
Alcatraz focuses on a day in 1963 at the notorious San Francisco prison when more than 300 guards and prisoners vanished into thin air. In each episode...
Are You There, Chelsea?
Chelsea Handler thinks that Laura Prepon plays a much better Chelsea Handler than she ever did.
On NBC's new comedy Are You There, Chelsea?, which is based on Handler's saucier titled book Are You There, Vodka? It's Me, Chelsea, Prepon (That '70s Show) plays a twentysomething version of Handler who, in the premiere episode, is arrested for drunk driving. (In a nice twist, Handler herself plays Chelsea's put-upon sister Sloane.)
Emmy Rossum, Shameless
Shameless' second season sees the Gallagher family more than surviving a sweltering summer. "The Gallaghers thrive in the summer," Emmy Rossum tells TVGuide.com. "They make a lot of money that they put and stash to keep them going through the winter."
Six things to expect in Season 2:

Once Upon a Time
She murdered her father, squeezed the life out of her lover's heart and conjured a curse that ripped the lives of thousands of people from their homes, erasing their memories and leaving them stranded in a foreign world. What makes Once Upon a Time's Evil Queen so evil?
That soon will be answered on the ABC fairy-tale drama, but portrayer Lana Parrilla teases that the origin of her malevolence springs from...
When someone needs to strip down to a skimpy outfit during a mission on Chuck, it usually falls on Sarah (Yvonne Strahovski). Not this time. This time, it's...
Behind on The Secret Circle? Here's what you missed:
Cassie returned to Chance Harbor and discovered she's a witch in a coven. The teenage coven bound themselves together and accidentally released a demon. Said demon inhabited Nick, who was then murdered. His brother Jake took his place in the circle, but he was secretly working with witch hunters to take down the circle. The hunters kidnapped Cassie, who discovered she's full of dark magic. Cassie and the circle escaped their terrible fate, though unbeknownst to them, someone in the coven is related to Cassie and has dark magic as well!
Now let's find out what's next from executive producer Andrew Miller:

Are any of my beloved characters going to die in the final season of One Tree Hill? — Danica
ADAM: I would say it's a distinct possibility (but look closely, that's not a body Haley is looking at in this promo). Rob Buckley's thoughts on the matter also seem pretty grim. "The One Tree Hill family as we know it is going to change by season's end," he teases. "The people we start the season with [are] not the same group we end it with."
Let's start 2012 with some Hawaii Five-0 spoilers? — James
