James Middleton, an executive producer on Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles, has shed light on where the Fox series was heading, had it not been terminated.
In what would be the series' last moments, John Connor (played by Thomas Dekker) had traveled with Catherine Weaver to a time when the war against the machines was in full tilt. There, the lad came face to face with Brian Austin Green's Derek Reese, who surprisingly failed to recognize humankind's "savior" ...
Paola Turbay on The Closer
This week on TNT's The Closer (Mondays, 9 pm), Detective Mikki Mendoza makes a lasting first impression as a Special Investigation Section officer who can kick butt with the best of them. That trait, among other things, draws the interest of Sanchez, who's overdue for some happiness. But is the match not meant to be? Guest star Paola Turbay told us about a roadblock to romance and her other summer gigs — as a nurse facing down Armageddon and an American Teenager's mom.
TVGuide.com: You've got a busy summer coming up.
Paola Turbay: Yeah, in fact last night I was on TVGuide.com and I saw that I'm on a whole bunch of things this month.
TVGuide.com: Starting with The Closer, how do we meet Detective Mikki Mendoza?
Turbay: She appears in this week's episode, as the director of the SIS, a part of the LAPD that supports Brenda's squad when it's time to catch the bad guys. She does car-crashing, door-kicking, punching... all the tough stuff. And what has caught many people's interest is the fact that she is a ...
Yes, Mark-Paul Gosselaar's shaggy 'do drew a lot of attention during Raising the Bar's first season. But that was entirely by design.
"It defined a characteristic of [public defender] Jerry," the actor explains in this TVGuide.com video Q&A, "that he's not going to conform to a system."
Now that Jerry has that introductory season behind him, the locks got lopped off in the TNT drama's Season 2 opener.
"We had to evolve Jerry," Gosselaar explains. He then admits, "It was a distraction [during Season 1]. The hair was walking in ...
Thanks so much for the great start you — the audience — gave our new season. It's enormously cheering to all of us at The Closer that we continue to be the top-rated scripted show on cable. By coincidence, last week's premiere coincided with Kyra Sedgwick being honored with her own star on Hollywood Boulevard's fabled Walk of Fame. That small, square of sidewalk forever etched with her name has been situated right next to that of Kevin Bacon's, which makes them the only married couple to be cemented together within one of L.A.'s most famous landmarks. Art imitates life.
But not in "Blood Money."
People will be tempted to draw parallels from Kyra's own life and our next story ...
Brigid Brannagh, Army Wives
This week on Lifetime's Army Wives (Sunday, 10 pm/ET), Pamela makes her debut as the leader of the new Army Family Team Building support group, a lark by which she'll get some insight into guy pal Roland's increasingly troubled psyche. But what else might the tomboy wife tackle in the weeks to come? Brigid Brannagh gave us a sneak peek.
TVGuide.com: What is Pamela up to this season, besides heading up the AFTB?
Brigid Brannagh: Well, there's that, and there actually are a few professions for Pam this year, as she searches for herself. She's all over the place, which I think is kind of funny. I mean, she's going to ...
Matthew Fox is using words such as "amazing," "incredibly satisfying," "very surprising" and "fairly confusing" to describe Lost's sixth and final season, which kicks off sometime in early 2010.
Emerging from the cone of silence lowered onto stars and producers after the Season 5 finale aired, Fox shared with the crowd at the 49th Monte-Carlo Television Festival a glimpse at the final 17 episodes. (CineTVBuzz.com posted video of the event.)
The season will begin with the aftermath of Juliet seemingly detonating the Jughead bomb's explosive core, in a development Fox said will be ...
If anyone had planned it, it would have felt too soon.
On Monday's season premiere of Weeds, Doug Wilson (Kevin Nealon) sports noticeable ligature marks around his neck. When Andy (Justin Kirk) asks him what happened, Doug replies with signature nonchalance, "[Masturbated] with a noose," a scene we saw in vivid detail in the Season 4 finale. The premiere aired, of course, just days after reports and speculation that actor David Carradine might have died under similar circumstances. (The death remains under investigation; Carradine's manager has said he suspects "foul play.")
For Nealon, the show's apparent ability to echo current events is nothing new. "You know, it's really interesting how Weeds is prophetic in a way; it's kind of eerie," he says. He points to prescient storylines about the California wildfires and the Mexican drug wars. "We did a story about [the show's fictional suburb] Agrestic burning down, and we shoot in Valencia [Calif.], and then Valencia sort of burnt down shortly thereafter," he says.
Nealon says the latest scene was shot last year. "It was too late to have any second thoughts about it." He says the edgy scene is par for the course on a show like Weeds. "I'm never surprised by what the writers come up with," he says. "You have to be willing to pretty much do anything on that show."
Has he ever refused them? "No, not yet," he says.
Ian Somerhalder and Maggie Grace, Lost
Which former Lost cast member tells TVGuide.com there is a "very large" possibility that he or she will return to the show during its sixth and final season?
And how might that actor's sound bite tie into the big tease tendered by a new ABC promo?
Watch the new entry in TVGuide.com's Getting Lost video series to see how the latest buzz is adding up to as unlikely a reunion as Paul McCartney getting back with Stella!

Edie Falco and Merritt Wever
Showtime has green-lit a second season of Nurse Jackie.
Monday's premiere of the Edie Falco medical dramedy nabbed 1 million viewers, the cable network's highest-rated premiere audience ever. In addition, 350,000 people watched the premiere's encore presentation — for a total of 1.35 million same-day viewers.
Showtime has ordered up 12 new episodes, but has yet to schedule an air date for them.
My Name Is Earl
Call it karma: My Name Is Earl may be reincarnated on cable.
Following NBC's unceremonious dumping of Earl this spring, the show's creators are in talks with TBS, TVGuide.com has confirmed. The cable network and Earl producer 20th Century Fox are in "preliminary conversations" about creating 13 new episodes of the sitcom together, a TBS spokesperson said.
It's unclear when these new episodes might air. Moving a show from network to basic cable would surely require budget cuts, and while the cast is still "on hold" with Fox TV, they would still have to renegotiate lower salaries. So don't cross this off Earl's to-do list just yet.
The good news? In a separate deal, TBS will start running repeats of Earl in the fall.
