Tonight at 9 pm/ET, TNT's The Closer kicks off a two-part season-ender that pits Brenda against one of her toughest-to-crack cases ever, and in turn a formidable adversary in the form of guest star Steven Culp.

What happened in there? How about, "What's happening in the ABC programming department?" The poor and the beleaguered The Nine has been pulled from the Alphabet net's schedule, leaving the final four episodes to see the light of day (or at least the light of that crappy lamp in your home office) at ABC.com.

Question: Regarding ABC's Traveler, fans are all abuzz about Stephen McPherson's press tour comments. I was just curious: In what context was the comment made?Answer: A reporter asked why the show was banished to summer, and here's his verbatim response: "We were disappointed in the way that that show was creatively developed, and [it] ended up being just not… not to the level that we thought it could succeed. And so it didn't get the kind of support that, you know, we gave some other shows that we believed in a lot more." Don't shoot the messenger!
