Lost is back in the news again, with the show's props getting auctioned off this week, the final episodes coming out on DVD next week (along with a brand-new epilogue) and the show nominated in several categories at the Emmys the following weekend. Michael Emerson, who plays the morally ambivalent Ben Linus, is both the star of the epilogue and a nominee for the Best Supporting Actor Emmy, which means he's the one making the rounds to all of the media outlets to talk about all things Lost. Also, he doesn't really have any new projects in the works, so his calendar is open. We joined a virtual roundtable (basically, one long Twitter conversation, hence the short answers) to find out what he thought of the finale, Ben's story arc and living in Hawaii for five years.
We see Steven Tyler, Kevin Spacey and a wedding in our future! Are they marrying each other? Is one of them marrying their mic stand, and the other officiating? Read on to find out!
ABC Family tried their hand at capturing some of that Hot in Cleveland magic with last night's premiere of Melissa & Joey, a sitcom starring two '90s icons -- Melissa Joan Hart and Joey Lawrence. Like Hot in Cleveland, the show is hackneyed and miserably unfunny, but unlike Hot in Cleveland, at least I can't really say its scripts are beneath its stars.
A ratings-machine Real Housewives series may lack a certain criminal factor next season, as the devious Danielle Staub may not be back to wreak havoc on New Jersey (well, at least not on-air). But there's better news for people with a grasp on reality in today's news...
It's almost time for the new fall season to start, which means some good TV is coming to DVD. Also, some TV that used to be good. Also, some TV that we hear is good, but damned if we know what the hell it's about anymore.
World's greatest quitter Steven Slater may have his own reality show and Wipeout has been renewed for another season...more TV shows you'll deny watching to your co-workers in today's news...
Most important news of the day: The Situation won't be appearing in Bones after all. We'll give you time to mourn/celebrate.
Remember when Macy's tried to get a Glee float in their Thanksgiving Day parade? Well, they must really like Glee -- or, you know, money -- because they just announced a line of Glee apparel that will hit their stores on Sunday. That, plus the announcement of a new comic book about the cast seems to be the world of brand merchandising finally catching up with the insanely popular TV show (although the comic is more of an unauthorized biography). While we look forward to the day when Macy's expands their line of T-shirts and hoodies to sizes bigger than "juniors," we have some more ideas for Glee-themed clothing and merchandise we'd like to see.
To help both shows expand their audiences a little bit, The CW will be sending two characters from One Tree Hill (Haley and Mia, if you care) to the Life Unexpected-verse for one episode this fall. While we don't watch One Tree Hill and have plenty of issues with Life Unexpected, this idea intrigued us. Here are ten other CW crossovers that we actually would watch.
Two themes dominate today's news selections: unreasonable (and in both cases, unwarranted) requests for more money and panel time, and the continuation of legitimately good television. Come now, you'll understand.
