24: Live Another Day may have fooled audiences when the show "killed" President Heller, but this week's casualty is a goner for sure.
After Jack (Kiefer Sutherland) and Chloe (Mary Lynn Rajskub) were able to fake the death of President Heller (William Devane) by hacking into the video feed on the drone terrorist Margot Al-Harazi (Michelle Fairley) was using to target the leader of the free world, Margot honored her word to crash all her other drones and cease the attacks on London. However, when Margot realized she'd been tricked...
Game of Thrones may have ended its fourth season in a singularly satisfying way, but fans are already feeling bereft of their weekly dose of intrigue and backstabbing.
Only the show's return or perhaps author George R.R. Martin releasing another chapter can truly help alleviate our Westerosi withdrawal symptoms. In an attempt to keep the spirit of the series alive until then, TVGuide.com offers up Game of Thrones' biggest unsolved mysteries as food for thought (lovingly prepared by Hot Pie) and discussion:

Question: Let's talk 24: Live Another Day. What are your thoughts on the season so far? I have to say, I'm loving it! The two-hour opener wasn't the best, and I'm not thrilled about the Chloe with the dragon tattoo, but it's been getting progressively better each week, and it's starting to feel like the 24 that I used to love (i.e., up to Season 5.) By the end of the original series, they had lost what made it great: the intriguing peripheral characters, politics and side-stories, and completely focused on indestructible Jack and his band of disposable supporting players. But this season he's found a worthy sidekick in Kate, we have all the drama around Heller and his team, the Russians lurking in the background, and I'm really digging where they're going with the hipster CIA tech. (Could we have a new Chloe on our hands?)

Forget the old Rodgers & Hammerstein song about June. TV is busting out all over, and what a remarkable week it has been. Starting with HBO's Game of Thrones wrapping another astounding season last Sunday — this run of episodes blessed by being able to dramatize so many, though not all, of the climactic events of book 3, A Storm of Swords, the best in George R.R. Martin's "Song of Ice & Fire" series — ending with a...

12. Worst He Said, He Said: On The Bachelorette, the group's resident instigator J.J. tells Marquel that when he received the rose on the very first night, Andrew whispered to him that Andi kept the two "blackies," referring to Marquel and Ron. Marquel confronts Andrew about the comment, which he of course denies. (J.J. maintains he wasn't lying.) Regardless, both Andrew and Marquel are eliminated. While we don't feel too bad for...
