Tonight's TV Hot List: Sunday, May 23, 2010


9/8c ABC
In the beginning, Jack took charge of the Oceanic survivors. And as "The End" begins, he's back in command — anointed by Jacob as the island's guardian and its protector from the Locke Monster, who now says he wants to destroy it. Where would that leave Ben, who seems to want to stay? Where's the island Desmond?  How (and will) the L.A. and island stories merge? More questions? We each have 815, at least. Maybe we can thrash them out at a diner after tonight's concert. We understand that Drive Shaft is playing.

Survivor: Heroes vs. Villains
8/7c CBS
Unless Colby, the lone surviving Hero, can win back-to-back immunity challenges tonight and force his way into the final three who will be questioned by and voted upon by the jury members, it appears that a Villain will take home the $1 million top prize. But which one? Parvati and Sandra have won before, but is that enough to not vote for them? Jerri has never won, but her game wasn't the strongest. That leaves Russell. But everyone agrees he is the most diabolical player the game has ever seen, which could leave the Texas oilman coming up just short once again. Following the two-hour season finale, the 20 castaways reunite to learn the winner and discuss their adventure.

Breaking Bad

Breaking Bad
10/9c AMC
While Season 2 ended with a bang for Walt and the gang, Season 3 begins in creepy fashion. Everyone is reeling from the mid-air collision of the two planes. Walt is foundering on his own; Jesse is languishing in anguish in rehab; and something wicked their way is a-coming. Walt gets an offer he can't refuse — but he does, and you wonder how long his resolve will last. This unnerving and suspenseful hour is also darkly humorous, and the series hits the ground running. Can't wait to see where it takes us.

Which Shows Need to End?

The Simpsons, 24

TV networks always have one or two shows that overstay their welcome, and we want to know which series you think should be cut loose.

Community Producer: "Season 2 Is a Blank Canvas"


Community, NBC's college comedy, has just got the greenlight for a second season. checked in with executive producer Dan Harmon to see what's ahead for the students of Greendale, how they'll explain Troy and Abed's special friendship and why the impending graduation of the cast is a tiny narrative problem.

NBC renews 30 Rock, The Office and Community Congratulations on the Season 2 renewal. How does it feel?
Thank you very much. It's very exciting. The feeling in the production offices is surprisingly normal. I guess we're so close to the finish line for the end of the season, that somehow the human brain is capable of tucking that news away while we focus on the task at hand. Would you have planned for some sort of closure had you not heard this soon?

Ratings: Oscars Pull Biggest Audience in Five Years

Steve Martin and Alec Baldwin

The 82nd Academy Awards drew its largest audience since 2005, capping off an awards season that saw ratings growth for every major awards show.

See our take on the Oscars' top moments

The Oscars were watched by 41.3 million viewers, improving 13 percent over last year's audience and posting significant gains for the second year in a row, according to Nielsen estimates. The telecast clobbered the competition, which mostly consisted of repeats or movies.

Before the Oscars, Barbara Walters' final Oscars special drew 15 million viewers, its biggest audience since 2002. The half-hour red carpet show drew its largest audience (25.1 million viewers) in three years... read more

Premise: Matt Groening's subversive, animated satire about Springfield's hapless first family became a cult favorite when it premiered on Fox in 1989 after first being seen in 1987 as a short on 'The Tracey Ullman Show.' That was then; now it's TV longest running comedy. Not since 'The Flintstones' in the '60s has a cartoon series drawn such a large adult audience, and, ay caramba, given us pop-culture expressions for the ages. And in 1999, Time magazine called it the best TV show of the 20th century.
