Senior editors Matt Mitovich and Mickey O'Connor field your burning questions!Can you give me some info on Grey's? Maybe a little hope for my favorite couple, Alex and Izzie? — DanielleMatt: The ink is barely dry on the production draft of the season opener, and while I have no tasty bone to throw Alex-Izzie fans, I can share this: This year's Grey's premiere is two hours of goodness, written by (of course) series creator Shonda Rhimes herself.I am stumped as to why there has been nothing said about the CSI: Miami finale. Is Horatio dead? Scoop please! — AimeeMatt: H is dead — "in a TV kind of way," a CBS insider tells me with a wink.Now that Smallville's Lex is gone, please tell me Chloe will get her job back at the "Daily Planet." She was fired so unfairly. — twistedlynMatt: I want Allison Mack's plucky newshound back at work as much as you. Alas, Chloe will have some serious 'splaining to do before the government loosens the cuffs and lets her return to the ke... read more

I was just wondering how you ...

Question: I was just wondering how you think the improved quality of original cable shows affects the cancellation decisions of the networks? I have been eagerly anticipating the new season of Burn Notice and it got me to thinking. Do the networks even see cable shows as viable competition? Has the success of cable summer premieres changed the network opinion of new summer programming? I don't know how it all works out, but I'm sure they analyze and overanalyze the numbers. My thought is: What stops them from trying to push the more demographically specific shows (like Moonlight, which I didn't watch out of blind allegiance to Joss Whedon, which I know sounds stupid) during the summer? It seems there is more and more evidence that new summer shows can work, so it just makes sense to me that this should be tried (the sooner the better) before the audiences go somewhere else. Answer: That's a lot of questions to consider, and I'm not sure the reasoning tracks from subject to subject. The ... read more

Burn Notice Season 1 — Review

Burn Notice Season One courtesy 20th Century Fox

Michael Westen, a contractor with the CIA, has received a "Burn Notice" - he's been blacklisted. He has to track down the person responsible while avoiding people he's crossed paths with in the past, and calls from his mother. Yup, mom is thrilled her son is back in Miami, and now she wants to spend time with her son. His ex-girlfriend, a deadly IRA-trained beauty, wants to talk about why their relationship failed (spy... IRA operative, gee, I wonder?), and how they can get things back on track. Michael is forced to become a private investigator, aided by his friend Sam (Bruce Campbell) so he can put food on the table, and bullets in his gun. The set includes all 11 episodes, including the double-length finale, audition footage, various montages, and commentary with the cast and crew on selected scenes from each episode. It's a fun, action-filled show. — Gord LaceyBurn Notice Season 1 on Amazon.com. read more

Exclusive: Battlestar's Helfer Gives Notice

Tricia Helfer by Justin Stephens/Sci Fi and Jeffrey Donovan by Jim Fiscus/USA

Tricia Helfer's post-Cylon career is heating up.Sources confirm to me exclusively that the Battlestar Galactica babe has landed a multi-episode arc on USA Network's fraktastic Burn Notice, which launches its second season on July 10. Helfer will play Carla, Michael's sleek, sexy and lethal "handler," who often comes across as unaffected and slightly amused by him. Teases series creator Matt Nix: "To protect the people he loves, Michael is forced to work for Carla — his only link to the people behind his burn notice."Helfer, who recently inked a talent holding deal with Fox (which produces Burn Notice), will juggle her Burn duties with the final season of BSG — which is easier said than done considering BSG shoots in Vancouver and BN in Miami. But that's what first-class cabins were made for, right?Burn Notice and Tricia Helfer — does it get any better than that? Well, does it?! read more

I'm just wondering how summer ...

Question: I'm just wondering how summer television (specifically The Closer, Burn Notice and Army Wives) will be affected by the strike? Also, will the fall TV shows air originals during the summer or will they end abruptly and pick up where they left off in the fall? Answer: I wish I had a better answer than this: I don't know. This is such murky, uncharted terrain that I can't answer these sorts of questions with any authority. In the case of Burn Notice, I was told recently by someone at USA Network that the second summer season was projected to have started production sometime around the end of this month, so it's still remotely possible that the summer season can be salvaged if the strike is over within the next month or so. If it drags into spring, that will spell trouble. And as concerned as I am about TV in the back half of this messy season, I am even more anxious about whether we'll be able to enjoy a TV summer as fruitful as last year, with Burn Notice, Mad Men, Damages, Army read more
