Chuck Season 3 Spoilers

New spoilers added 1-7-10

In the first episode of the new season, a recurring character dies. (Michael Ausiello) As season three starts, we’ll learn something awful has happened between Chuck and Sarah since the second season, and eventually we’ll learn just what that is. We’ll also learn how crucial Sarah is to whether Chuck makes a good spy. Carina, Sarah’s old partner from season one, will be back. And Jeffster will perform again in a very special episode. (TV Guide)

In the second episode of the new season, Sarah’s spy buddy Carina returns. (Michael Ausiello) Carina returns in episode 3×02 and it’s awesome. Also in that episode, Casey gets to go undercover as someone other than a waiter, with amusing results. Episode 3×03 is a combined Devon/Casey episode, which gives insights into both their pasts. And we meet Shaw in episode 3×04. Also, Kreuk’s introduction is “more organic” than fans may have feared. (ChuckTV)

The third episode of the new season is a big episode for Ryan McPartlin’s Awesome. (Michael Ausiello)

Jeff and Lester are both back in action, both as individuals and in musician form. Show runner Josh Schwartz says: “The Buy More has a fight club storyline where Lester really goes bananas. And obviously, you can expect and look forward to the return of Jeffster.” In fact, probably more Lester than you’d ever want to know. “I promise this, we will see Lester’s bedroom,” says Josh. And Chris Fedak gives us the dirty deets: “You will see what Lester sleeps in, his pj’s—and it involves feet.” (Watch With Kristin)

There’s something going on beneath the Home Theater Room at the Buy More. (a new secret passage from inside there) Also, Chuck and Kristen Kreuk will be spotted making out like teenagers. Kristen’s character is not what she seems, so like Jill before her, she cannot be long for Chuck’s world. (Watch With Kristin)

Casey is going to have a lot to deal with this season — a secret from his past is going to come to light, and it’ll make his life complicated. Also, he’ll get more responsibilities at the Buy More, and will start to discover that Buy More may actually be his future. Meanwhile, Lester has a “Fight Club” episode where he goes nuts. And we’ll get to see Lester’s bedroom and his pajamas. (ChuckTV)

Captain Awesome won’t be the only person clued in to Chuck Bartowski’s secret identity this season. “Some people might find out,” Yvonne Strahovski says. “Somebody finds out from the family. Dramatic pause. Somebody else finds out. That’s all I can say.” (TV Guide)

According to show runner Chris Fedak, “Ellie and Awesome moved out. They found an apartment across the way, and Chuck and Morgan are getting their bachelor pad.” (Watch With Kristin)

Yvonne Strahovski says that Sarah’s role will change significantly this season. She’ll go from being Chuck’s caretaker to something akin to his boss as he gears up to be a real spy guy. Chuck’s training will bring to light new information about Sarah’s start in the biz, including her real name. (TV Guide)

In the seventh episode, Chuck and Hannah (KristenKreuk) share not only a kiss, but they then go on to treat the Buy More’s Home Theater Room like a no-tell motel. Meanwhile, Shaw (Brandon Routh) and Sarah have one of those, “Oh my god we’re gonna die, so I may as well tell you I love you” moments. Kristin’s character Hannah is not what she seems, and I don’t think she’s long for Chuck’s world. (Watch With Kristin)

In episode 10, Casey does something bad. REALLY bad. Could-cost-him-his-job bad. (Michael Ausiello)

Kristin Kreuk is joining Chuck for multiple episodes as Hannah, a girl Chuck meets on a flight to Paris. Chuck and Hannah definitely have feelings for each other. Laid off from her glamorous publishing job, Hannah ends up working at the Buy More. (Michael Ausiello)

Chuck won’t be the only Buy More employee crushing on the new girl [ Kristin Kreuk]. Morgan will develop semi-serious feelings for her, too. (Michael Ausiello)

When the new season picks up, it’s right after the end of the previous season, so Chuck is still new to his abilities. And Morgan is in Hawaii working on becoming a hibachi chef, so the Buy More is firmly in the grip of Emmett, and things aren’t going that well without Morgan and Chuck. (SciFi Wire)

NBC has confirmed that Jeffster will perform on the show next season. (Watch With Kristin)

There are no plans to reveal Sarah’s real name. (Watch With Kristin)

The show is casting the role of a dashing and suave dictator of a small, fictitious nation called Parador. (Michael Ausiello)

Chuck star Ryan McPartlin (Devon “Awesome” Woodcomb) says: “I don’t know if I’ll be made a spy, but I’m getting involved in the spy world. Chuck’s going to [be] in a pinch and call on me to help him out.” Makes sense, but we have an important question: Will this mean more or less clothes? “I don’t have to just be shirtless for no reason, but I’m sure my shirt will come off for random acts of God.” Whoo! As McPartlin says, “I feel like it’s amazing because it’s like the first season, when Chuck got to carry the weight of the secret. I get to bring that [spirit of the] first season back again, through Awesome’s eyes. And I’m just gonna lean on [Sarah and Chuck] for advice on how to do that.” (Watch With Kristin)

There’s a chance that Bryce Larkin isn’t really dead and that he could return to shake things up a little. Matthew Bomer says, “I’d love to go back, but it’s really going to depend on scheduling [with White Collar]. There is a possibility that I will be back on Chuck.” (Watch With Kristin)

The Classic ‘Chuck’ Poster at San Diego Comic Con

See larger image” has generated buzz even before its panel at this year’s San Diego Comic Con panel is held. The series about nerd spy has released a poster to be unveiled at the convention Saturday, July 25. It pays homage to the ’70s movies with the hand-drawn arts displaying the key characters and the Nerd Herd car smashing through glass. The panel for “Chuck” will be conducted in the coveted room, Ballroom 20, starting 10 A.M. Guests expected to come are the two lead actors, and as well as creator Josh Schwartz. They are expected to explain about the webseries plan which Schwartz spilled previously.

“Chuck”, which almost got canceled by NBC, is reserved for 13 episodes in 2010 midseason. Production according to star however, will start as early as this August. “We will be ready to come back whenever we’re asked to come back,” Sahay said in an interview with TVGuide. “And that’s good to know.”

The Orange Orange might morph into a Subway next season. (Michael Ausiello)

‘Chuck’ Production of Season 3 Starts in August

See larger image In the same tone to Chris Fedak’s statement that “” may be released earlier than scheduled, Lester’s depicter confirmed that despite being put in midseason 2010, the cast and the crew will be back working as early as this August. “We will be ready to come back whenever we’re asked to come back,” Sahay said in an interview with TVGuide. “And that’s good to know.” Not only that, Sahay also shared another good news when he said that the order NBC put may extend beyond 13 episodes if the third season continually shows a strong rating. “That’s the hope,” Sahay crossed his finger. “(NBC boss Ben Silverman) said he’ll push us into the summer with a back nine (order), so we’re planning on making the shows that good.” In the mean time, “Chuck” is still scheduled to enter every Mondays at 8/7c in March 2010 after the Winter Olympics. Fedak revealed a plan to do a webseries to keep fans craving for the geeky action. At the end of the second season, Chuck accidentally downloaded a new skill into his brain. “I know kung fu,” he said. About how it would translate on the third season, Sahay shared what he knows, saying “…(Chuck’s new ability) is going to make things hilarious… and wild.”

Chuck deserves a whole season, not just 13 episodes. Any chance of more? MATT: Actually, yes. NBC entertainment president Ben Silverman says that while the current plan is to deliver 13 midseason episodes, depending on the ratings, “we may extend it out and continue it through the summer,” where he thinks it could pair nicely with Friday Night Lights. “We’re looking to … keep [Chuck] incredibly viral and buzz-worthy until it returns, and then hopefully have it on our air for many years to come.” That’d be Awesome. And even more so? I chatted up Scott Bakula at TNT’s upfronts luncheon, and he’s game for more Chuck, if need be. Source: TV Guide Online

Exclusive ‘Chuck’ boss on who’s in, who’s out, and what’s next!

Checkjoshschwartz_l Will a tighter budget lead to a less awesome (and populated) show? Does the massive Subway deal mean an end to Sarah’s yogurt shop? Will the midseason launch kill the show’s momentum? Will Chuck and Sarah start dating for real? Will exec producer Josh Schwartz answer all of these and then some in the following exclusive Q&A? I can tackle that last one: Yes!

NBC said the show’s budget will remain unchanged from last season. I’m hearing different. What’s the deal?
JOSH SCHWARTZ:
I can tell you that [Warner Bros.] asked us to make budget cuts to meet a decrease in the NBC license fee. That’s how it was presented to me. That’s as far as I know. My job is to then be able to produce the show at the number the studio is able to deficit it for.

How will the cuts affect what we see?
SCHWARTZ:
Hopefully, you won’t be able to tell. I don’t think the look of the show is going to change. We might have certain episodes where Chuck’s mission is such that we don’t get the opportunity to go to the Buy More [as much]. We love our cast and, obviously, we want to use them as much as possible in as many episodes as possible.

I heard Julia Ling [Anna] might not return. True?
SCHWARTZ:
No. We have plans for Anna to return.

Has she been taken off contract?
SCHWARTZ:
We actually haven’t finalized all of our actor deals yet. It’s all being sorted out. But, like I said, we’re going to do whatever we can to try to keep the ensemble together.

Will the show’s central trio be in every episodes?
SCHWARTZ:
Yes. Chuck, Sarah, and Casey are in all episodes.

Will Sarah be working at a Subway next season?
SCHWARTZ:
[Laughs] You know, I don’t know the full details of the Subway integration yet. I know it will be significant. Chuck is a show that happens to be well positioned for effortless product integration, especially because Chuck works at an electronics shop in a strip mall. If Sarah or someone worked at a Subway it would hopefully be no more intrusive or unrealistic than Liz Lemon working at NBC.

Are you concerned at all about the show being off the air for 10 months?
SCHWARTZ:
It was really a tough choice that the network faced: Put us on Friday or [hold us until] midseason. I really believe Chuck is the little show that could. Our fans are clearly passionate, clearly loyal, and hopefully all we’ll do is get them more and more [excited] for our return. And we’ll come up with fun ways of stoking the fans throughout the fall. We also have something very, very fun planned for Comic-Con this year.

How about a season 3 spoiler in honor of the show’s renewal?
SCHWARTZ:
The biggest thing, obviously, will be dealing with the ramifications of how we ended the season. What does it mean for Chuck [and] how will it manifest itself? And I think for anyone who is concerned that he’s no longer going to be the Everyman, or an accidental hero, fear not.

Will Chuck and Sarah start the season off as a full-fledged couple?
SCHWARTZ:
I don’t want to give anything away, but obviously, Chuck having the Intersect in his head will severely complicate their ability to be a couple. Chuck having the Intersect in his head will severely complicate their ability to be a couple … [And] look for a potential new love interest on the show.

Really? For who?
SCHWARTZ: Someone who could triangulate between a couple of characters.

Male or female?
SCHWARTZ:
Gosh, isn’t it more fun to tease?

I guess.
SCHWARTZ:
Teasing is what you’re good at.

The CW has made a special featurette for one of the qualities that “” is proud of, the wardrobe. Costume designer Eric Daman takes viewers inside the closet of the show’s fashion department, showing off some collections which Serena, Blair and Chuck will be wearing in the third season. Daman’s concept for Serena is those attires which crave for attention because Serena is having an identity crisis. If in season 2 she resembled ‘ sense of fashion where everything is sleek and simple, she will go back to the old ‘party girl Serena’ style. This includes a bejeweled vest and blazer splashed with lots of colors.

As for Blair, Daman wants to present a more mature look for her. This includes a revolution in the signature headband which goes from school-girl headband to cream-colored python headband. Clothes-wise, Blair is going sleeker and minimal because she is now a student of NYU who wants to be the new reigning queen. Blair in fact has a connection with boyfriend Chuck’s style, which is brooch. Like Blair who pays attention to details, Chuck is also a rather suave man who won’t hesitate wearing a red rose brooch on his suit. Daman, who said that Chuck is his favorite character to dress, changes the style from urban dandy to ‘ Gordon Gecko from “Wall Street”. This means Chuck will wear gold cufflings, suspenders and such.

The third season of “Gossip Girl” premieres on September 14.

Gossip Girl – First 3 Episode Spoilers

These come from someone who 2 weeks ago claimed to have seen the 1st 3 Episodes. We did not post them until we could confirm the details. With the release today of the new Promotional Photos, we now feel that they probably did see the episodes.

Here is what they are saying.

Chuck decides he is going to open a speakeasy in the 1st few episodes and gets mad at Serena who *beep* it up for him during a meeting by saying something stupid. So, he tries to make up for it by trying to impress the man he is trying to make the deal with by obtaining this painting. It turns out to be the same painting that Blair needs to get into some snobby society (that turns out to be fake- Georgina sets her up). So they big against one another, Serena ends up getting it at the last second-and gives it to Blair. Blair in the end gives it to Chuck and tells him she believes in him. Chuck in turn tells the guy he was trying to make a deal with to go screw himself that he is going to buy the whole damned hotel. And then the episode (3) ends with him and Blair skipping off with a bottle of champagne to enjoy the Penthouse Suite of his new hotel. Lots of good stuff with them the first 3 episodes.Carter grown on me at e.3.There is a steamy scene i could remember with chuck and blair.

The show is currently shooting a scene which has Chuck Bass kiss another man. The person he kisses is Neal Bledsoe, who’s guest-starring in episode 6 as Josh Ellis, NYU’s head of freshman affairs. Since Josh is tasked with selecting an incoming student for the honor of delivering the freshman speech, he’s a person of interest to Blair. In fact, she’s so determined to snag the slot that she goes so far as to pimp out her boyfriend out to the gay guy in charge. (Michael Ausiello)

Olivia’s (Hilary Duff) new guy is actually an old flame. Olivia first appears in episode four on Gossip Girl this season, and shortly thereafter we meet her ex-boyfriend, who’s interested in getting back in her life. (Watch With Kristin)

With Chuck kissing a guy: The kiss itself isn’t the issue. It’s the general lack of trust between them [Chuck and Blair] that causes problems. And the tension grows the following week when another breakdown in trust occurs — this time involving the bar Chuck opens in his new hotel. (Michael Ausiello)

Gossip Girl – Back-To-School Woes and Whoas for the Gossip Cast

Just when you thought Gossip Girl couldn’t get anymore glamorous, the third season is set to return with a bang. “We have our big Polo match in the first episode, we go to Sotheby’s for an auction in the third episode and in the fourth episode, we have a big movie premiere at Ziegfeld [Theater],” says the show’s executive producer Stephanie Savage.

And amidst all this glitz and glam, Gossip’s graduates are getting ready to go back-to-school and things are never too easy, are they? Spoiler alerts to come …

For Blair Waldorf, college might just be down the street from her posh Upper East Side pad, but it might as be well be across the country. “Blair is the fish out of water,” says Savage of Leighton Meester’s character. “Now that she is going to school downtown, Vanessa and Dan are really among their people. So it’s bizarre-o world for her.”

However, Blair won’t be totally alone downtown. As promised, Georgina Sparks (Michelle Trachtenberg) will return as her new college roommate. “She is not going to be in our first episode, but she will be in the second episode when our kid’s start college,” says Savage. And Chuck Bass (Ed Westwick) will be a staple by Blair’s side throughout the season. While Chuck won’t be clocking in any school time, Savage tells PEOPLE, “This year, [Chuck] is really going to be focused on getting out from underneath his father’s shadow and starting his own entrepreneurial direction.”

Adding to Blair’s “shadows” downtown is off-again BFF Serena van der Woodsen (Blake Lively), who will also be stirring up trouble south of Central Park. As well as locking lips with Carter Baizen (Sebastian Stan) in the first episode, Serena’ll be hooking up with designers Tory Burch and Georgina Chapman of Marchesa. Savage tells us the fashion cameos have to do with Serena’s “decision [in terms of college] and what happens to her in the first couple of episodes.”

But, a reconciliation with Dan Humphrey (Penn Badgley) won’t be in her future [DASH] at least not this year — Dan is busy romancing Hilary Duff’s character Olivia Burke in the Village.

Then there’s Jenny Humphrey (Taylor Momsen), learning the ropes of Queen Bee. “We really do see Jenny struggling with what she is going to do with this power that has been given to her,” says Savage. “She is back at Constance and now she is a junior — the same age as our other girls when the show started — so we have lots of story areas for Jenny that are opening up.” And one in particular that will make a comeback: Jenny’s fashion career! “As we get more into the season, that is going to be a bigger and bigger story,” says Savage. – Andrea DeSimone

Gossip Girl – Season 3 Spoilers

CHUCK & BLAIR: IT’S ON!
“Chuck (Ed Westwick) and Blair (Leighton Meester) are definitely going to be a couple and stay a couple this season,” Gossip Girl executive producer Stephanie Savage tells PEOPLE. But don’t expect it to be all chocolates and roses: “Chuck and Blair in a relationship is going to be something very unique and something we haven’t seen before. They have definitely found ways to not be boring.” Now thatsounds interesting.

SERENA & CARTER! OMG!
In last season’s finale, Serena van der Woodsen (Blake Lively) unexpectedly took off with Carter Baizen (Sebastian Stan). So, are they now a couple? Not quite. “Something definitely happens with Carter over the summer and you will see Serena and Carter deal with the fallout over that in our first couple of episodes,” says Savage.

NATE’S NEW GIRL
The drama between Nate Archibald (Chace Crawford) and his powerful grandfather is sure to continue. When Nate finds a new ladylove in Bree Buckley (Joanna Garcia), a Texas girl whose Republican family counts the Vanderbilts as their political rivals, it’s game on. “It’s a bit of a Romeo and Juliet romance,” says Savage.

DAN’S A-LIST FLING
So, how does a kid from Brooklyn score the superstar new girl? “[Olivia Burke] (played by Hilary Duff) is a child actress who craves a normal college-girl existence and happens upon Dan Humphrey (Penn Badgley), a Brooklyn hipster and cultural snob who doesn’t know who she is,” says Savage. But don’t count on Serena being jealous. “Dan and Serena are a lot more like siblings than former flames. It is much less romantic than it has ever been.”

FAMILY REUNION?
“The Rufus-Lily-Lovechild story will definitely come [full circle] in the first part of the season,” says Savage, who won’t divulge any more details – though we suspect a reunion is in sight. And something tells us that Vanessa Abrams (Jessica Szohr) might help it happen. “Vanessa has someone new in her life, who may or may not be related to Dan Humphrey,” hints Savage. Any guesses?

Gossip Girl – Crossover with The Beautiful Life?

Mike and Karey spilled that they’re already thinking of a way to get the casts of Gossip Girl and The Beautiful Life to join forces in a mega-New York crossover.

While nothing is set in stone for the crossover right now, Mike teased a possible storyline that he’ll be pitching to Gossip’s executive producer Stephanie Savage: “My idea—since these things happen—there are blackouts. The idea is that we have two shows that exist in the same city, and if our cast is on the subway, and their cast is on the subway, and then the subway shuts down. We don’t even have to necessarily cross them; we can simply tell two stories with them in the background and maybe have one or two characters cross through.” Karey also told us she wouldn’t mind Chuck Bass stealing some of the models, natch.

Gossip Girl – Latest from Ausiello – Chuck is gay?

Spotted: Chuck Bass sucking face with a dude!

It’s true! Multiple Gossip Girl insiders confirm to me exclusively that the CW phenom is currently shooting an episode for its upcoming third season in which Ed Westwick’s legendary lothario kisses another man.

So who’s the lucky guy? And what are the circumstances surrounding the same-sex smooch? Keep reading for all the spoilery details…

First things first: Sorry to disappoint, but no, it’s not Chace Crawford. Westwick’s “romantic” interest is up-and-comer Neal Bledsoe (CSI: NY, Guiding Light), who’s guest-starring in episode 6 as Josh Ellis, NYU’s head of freshman affairs. Since Josh is tasked with selecting an incoming student for the honor of delivering the freshman speech, he’s, shall we say, a person of interest to Blair. In fact, she’s so determined to snag the slot that she goes so far as to pimp out her boyfriend out to the gay guy in charge.

The catch? All you need to know is there is one. Oh, and wait until you hear what Chuck says to Blair following the lip-lock. (Must. Resist. Temptation. To. Spoil.)

It was only a matter of time before GG played the maybe-gay card with Chuck, who swung both ways in Cecily von Ziegesar’s Gossip Girl books.

Gossip Girl – Neal Bledsoe Interview

In a matter of minutes last week, Neal Bledsoe went from being a mostly unknown actor to the guy who made out with Ed Westwick on Gossip Girl. The headline-making kiss doesn’t air until Oct. 19, but Bledsoe — who plays a gay NYU alumni whom Blair pimps boyfriend Chuck out to — happily offered us a sneak preview of the can’t-miss episode (and broke some big career news in the process).

How has your life changed in the past week?
NEAL BLEDSOE: My mom is certainly a thousand times more proud of me. And it was my first experience with the paparazzi knowing my name, which was strange. I thought maybe Neil Diamond or Neil Sedaka was standing behind me.

Tell me about your character.
BLEDSOE: Initially I was supposed to play the dean of the freshman class. But then they hired a 28-year-old actor so that seemed like a little bit of a stretch. Now I play a lawyer who is a very well connected alumni at the university who has a hand in deciding who is going to give the famous freshman speech.

An honor you agree to extend to Blair in exchange for the kiss. Is it as simple as you just wanting to say you made out with the legendary Chuck Bass?
BLEDSOE: I will tell you this: I have a very unexpected and darker motivation about it.

Was shooting the kiss awkward?
BLEDSOE: No. We were both professionals about it. [It helped] that we got to know each other a little bit beforehand. And we certainly rehearsed it.

Rehearsed it? How many takes did you do?
BLEDSOE: [Laughs] More than a few.

How would you characterize the kiss? Steamy? A little peck?
BLEDSOE: I would characterize it as a nice kiss.

Complete this sentence: Ed Westwick kisses just like…
BLEDSOE: [Laughs] …he kisses just like Chuck Bass.

What did your girlfriend think?
BLEDSOE: She was happy I wasn’t kissing any of the girls on the show. She might’ve had some Blake Lively envy.

At what point in the process did you find out about the kiss?
BLEDSOE: There was an asterisk on the character breakdown that said, ‘Actor must kiss Ed Westwick in the episode.’

Your first reaction?
BLEDSOE: Things like that shouldn’t matter. Unfortunately for some actors things like that do matter and they’ll turn down projects because of it. I thought it was a really fun episode. I had an awesome time doing it. And I think it would’ve been a shame if I was not open-minded enough to do the episode simply because I had to kiss another man.

Might your character return at some point?
BLEDSOE: I have no idea. That’s up to the writers.

Where do you go from here?
BLEDSOE: I don’t think I’d be breaking my confidentially agreement by saying this: I’m going to be in the Sex and the City sequel.

Who are you playing?
BLEDSOE: Um… It’s a character in the Sex and the City sequel.

Gossip Girl – Josh Safran dishes on Season 3

Gossip Girl begins its third season Monday September 14, and the pre-premiere chatter is louder than ever. So to quiet everyone down (or possibly amp them up further), I’m presenting a three-part interview with Josh Safran, writer and co-executive producer of Gossip Girl. There was much to discuss.

There is the kiss that launched a thousand spoiler alerts. (For those of you just returning from space, journalists and bloggers ran with a leaked storyline where Blair furthers a hairbrained agenda by fooling Chuck into kissing a man.) There is the heightened sensitivity that Safran, the show’s only gay writer, feels towards covering gay themes. There is the story behind Gossip Girl’s more outrageous stories. And the most scandalous of all: there are schemes to foil the leakers. Or at least to try. And so, without further delay, I bring you Josh Safran, part one.

Adrienne Gruben: The kiss leak is born from this new age of spoilers, a relatively new phenomenon that’s been building, but gained more traction this year. NPR even did a story on them. Some people say they create great intrigue and some say they dampen a story’s impact. What is your take?

Josh Safran: First of all, I was surprised [by the leak]. We never intended it to get out there, and we didn’t want it to, either. I understand why they exist and some people like them and some people don’t, and if you don’t like them, don’t look, but what I don’t like is how it feels more and more like everything is being spoiled. Like there isn’t somebody going, “You know what? I have two pieces of information. Why don’t I use one and not the other?” Although not everything gets out, of course, it’s sometimes hard to write stuff when you feel like “can we do this, or will it get out?” It’s just troubles us. I wish that people gave a little more care to what they put out there.

AG: As you know, but some of the readers might not, Gossip Girl was developed by Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage based upon the books by Cecily Von Ziegesar. In the books, Chuck was bisexual. Personalities Examiner Jorge Carreon wanted to know why, in adapting Chuck’s character for the show, he was not also written as bisexual.

JS: Chuck is not bisexual in the first book. The pilot mirrors the first book, and Josh and Stephanie drew from there for each character. We’ve deviated from the books for the show quite a bit, but it’s important to state that there was never a “we don’t want to make Chuck bisexual” conversation. The book was used merely as the launching point for the character of Chuck, for each character. Once the show was up and running, the writers’ room mindset, per Josh and Stephanie, was to “let the books be the books and let’s use them where we can, but let’s also make the series the series.” Also, you have to remember that when we started, the entire series of books is a year of their high school life– their Senior year. Josh and Stephanie made them Juniors for the first season, so we couldn’t even delve into the college stuff yet. And now, we are so far away from the books in a lot of ways, especially after Season 1.

AG: Were you planning to use the kiss as part of the promo marketing before the episode?

JS: All I can say is that the moment that people are talking about was created organically for the story. And there was honestly never any thought that it would be anything other than enjoyable for the audience as they watched. We just thought, “This will be a great episode,” and I think the audience will see when they view the show that [that moment is] not a stunt. I’m proud of how we’ve woven gay characters into the tapestry of the show. I feel like, as the only gay writer on the show from the beginning and as someone who feels a huge responsibility towards the creation of fully realized gay characters in television, I am supremely proud of what Gossip Girl has done with its gay characters.

AG: Like Eric?

JS: Yes, if you look at Eric, in my mind, he is in one of the only, if not the only, secure relationship on the show. He is also one of the youngest out gay males on network television. And starting with Georgina’s outing of Eric, we’ve done, in my opinion, really strong stuff surrounding the reality of being a gay teenager, that how for some people in your world it’s not a big deal, but for other people, they might try to use it against you, hurt you for it. It’s never black and white, and it’s never easy.

AG: On the reality of being a gay teenager, Eric attempted suicide in the first episode. Teenagers attempt suicide more than any other demographic, but then to add the difficulty of being a gay, closeted teenager into the mix, and in a rigid society no less…

JS: After the pilot, where Eric had attempted suicide, Josh and Stephanie gathered all the writers and we met with people from a suicide prevention organization in Washington. They had seen the episode and they wanted to talk to us about the responsible ways to further that story and I was very grateful for that. We all were. We talked about how one of the top reasons for young, male suicide attempts in America is over struggles with homosexuality, and from that moment on it became clear that that was Eric’s story, and Stephanie and Josh were quick to embrace it. For me that ties back to what it’s like to be a gay, closeted teenager who is having issues and doesn’t feel comfortable with coming out. I was hoping that in showing Eric’s story, the way we have from the beginning, we would be saying to someone in a similar situation, “Your life doesn’t have to be so scary, you are not alone.” Eric was outed, but he ultimately found power in that and he eventually was accepted by everyone. He accepted himself. I feel like we still approach any subject matter from the Gay and Lesbian viewpoint with the same kind of responsibility.

AG: Wow. After hearing all that, I feel bad bringing this up, but I’ve read some criticisms of Eric’s story lines online, that you don’t use him enough.

JS: I’ve read the internet talk, some amongst the gay community that we don’t tell enough stories with Eric, I feel it’s important to add that we don’t drive stories through Eric because he is not a regular. That goes for anyone who is not a regular, but I think that actually works because it allows Eric to have a healthy relationship with Jonathan. If we had to showcase him more, that wouldn’t be the case. This is Gossip Girl. I mean, look at the regulars’ relationships – up and down each week! He has a great relationship.

AG: So with all of that back-story on the show’s intentions for gay themes, and your feelings of personal responsibility, let’s get back to the kiss, which it turns out, did not come from a place of gay for the sake of shock value, or gay for the sake of a shocking promo.

JS: Look, of course once in a while we’re like, “Wow, wouldn’t it be explosive if “X” happened?” but that’s usually more like, “Wouldn’t it be explosive if Serena was on the end of a Ponzi scheme?”. We don’t think about the smaller moments. We don’t think about what they’re going to promo. It does not come through our heads because from a logistical point of view, when we’re breaking a story, it’s so far away to its airdate. This kiss happens in episode 6, and episode 1 hasn’t even aired yet, and won’t for weeks! We’d so like to bury things so that people are actually surprised when they watch the episode, but lately with all the spoiler sites that isn’t possible. Our intention for this was that people’s jaws would drop while actually watching the episode because they wouldn’t know we were going there. And the thing is, it’s a great episode filled with so many juicy things. It’s not like we were sitting their pitching promos like “You’ll never believe what Chuck’s about to do!”, and again, when you see the episode, you will see it’s not that kind of moment. It’s truly a tiny character beat in a much larger story. I’d be the first person to say, there’s no way we can do that if it’s going to make people think it’s a stunt. And it’s not even me. The writers are incredible, really sensitive and cool, I’m so proud to work with them, and not one person in that room is driven by stunts or the idea of sweeps. Everything is always character first, be it “I killed someone” or Blair and Nate getting back together [in Season 2]. People have said that we write stunt plot lines for sweeps. I’m not even sure the CW competes in sweeps. Stephanie always says, “On Gossip Girl, every episode is a sweeps episode.” And it is.

AG: They’re never going to totally go away, but is there a way on your end to circumvent, or at least outsmart, people trying to get information?

JS: Well, now we sometimes use fake sides, just in case, because I know of cases on other shows where scripts, or sides, ended up in the recycling, they ended up there totally innocently, and inadvertently got into the hands of someone who realized it was a find. So now we’re just going to have to be creative. When Chuck kissed Blair in the finale last year, we were determined to throw people off. We had a crowd of a couple hundred people, and dozens of paparazzi, and we decided to have Nate also do the same scene — kiss Blair outside of The Plaza — to throw people off. Chace and Leighton were such good sports, Chace came in early, and we had Leighton and Ed do their take, with the hundreds of people watching, and then Chace came out, and he did the same take and everyone was like, “Whoa!”. You heard this loud collective gasp, and it was this great moment because the crowd knew they were being played, they just didn’t know which way. I had my camera and took pictures of the crowd. It was really fun to do, and even though when the pictures of both kisses hit the press, a lot of people figured “it’s got to be Chuck and Blair,” because people kind of knew, it was still a way to subvert the spoilers, and have fun.

AG: Since we talked about how you hate it when things are leaked, anything you can leak yourself before someone finds it in a trash, or taped to a streetlamp?

JS: Well, there’s something we’re putting together right now, an event we’re really excited about. It’s something we’ve been wanting to do for a while now — a musical. But a musical in only the way Gossip Girl could do it. Sometimes we have an idea like this, but then something else comes up and we put it on the back burner. Hopefully this time it’ll happen.

AG: Ok, this is a bad musical pun, but I will be singing your praises for compromising your beliefs a little and leaking this.

JS: It was either tell you, or find someone digging it out of my recycling tomorrow.

Next time, Josh tells more about what to expect this season, how Gossip Girl is like Law and Order, and reveals some secrets from the writer’s room including the very mysterious “time of death” chart on the wall.

Neal Bledsoe on Kissing Ed Westwick for ‘Gossip Girl’

The guest star said that Westwick kisses just like Chuck Bass and that it was not awkward at all because they rehearsed it.

Neal Bledsoe on Kissing Ed Westwick for 'Gossip Girl'Source: Ace Showbiz TV News
See larger image The guy who will be kissing on “” is a mystery no more. Neal Bledsoe has opened up to Entertainment Weekly what prompted him to take the role and how the kiss happened. The actor who was relatively unknown, said it was a “nice kiss” and that it would be foolish if he hadn’t taken the role just because he has to kiss a guy. As previously reported, Westwick’s Chuck Bass is doing Blair a favor by seducing the gay NYU alumni who has the power to select a freshman to give the important speech. Turns out the kiss is not going as simple as it should be. “I will tell you this: I have a very unexpected and darker motivation about it,” Bledsoe told EW. How exactly the kiss shooting went on, Bledsoe admitted it was not awkward at all because they were both “professionals about it” and have rehearsed it. He confessed though that the scene took several takes to be perfect.

“Gossip Girl” returns on September 14 but the kiss will not be featured until the October 19 episode.

‘Gossip Girl’ exclusive: Chuck Bass goes gay?!

gossip-girl_lSpotted: Chuck Bass sucking face with a dude!

It was only a matter of time before GG played the maybe-gay card with Chuck, who swung both ways in Cecily von Ziegesar’s Gossip Girl books.

Back-To-School Woes and Whoas for the Gossip Cast

Just when you thought Gossip Girl couldn’t get anymore glamorous, the third season is set to return with a bang. “We have our big Polo match in the first episode, we go to Sotheby’s for an auction in the third episode and in the fourth episode, we have a big movie premiere at Ziegfeld [Theater],” says the show’s executive producer Stephanie Savage.

And amidst all this glitz and glam, Gossip’s graduates are getting ready to go back-to-school and things are never too easy, are they? Spoiler alerts to come …

For Blair Waldorf, college might just be down the street from her posh Upper East Side pad, but it might as be well be across the country. “Blair is the fish out of water,” says Savage of Leighton Meester’s character. “Now that she is going to school downtown, Vanessa and Dan are really among their people. So it’s bizarre-o world for her.”

However, Blair won’t be totally alone downtown. As promised, Georgina Sparks (Michelle Trachtenberg) will return as her new college roommate. “She is not going to be in our first episode, but she will be in the second episode when our kid’s start college,” says Savage. And Chuck Bass (Ed
Westwick
) will be a staple by Blair’s side throughout the season. While Chuck won’t be clocking in any school time, Savage tells PEOPLE, “This year, [Chuck] is really going to be focused on getting out from underneath his
father’s shadow and starting his own entrepreneurial direction.”

Adding to Blair’s “shadows” downtown is off-again BFF Serena van der Woodsen (Blake Lively), who will also be stirring up trouble south of Central Park. As well as locking lips with Carter Baizen (Sebastian Stan) in the first episode, Serena’ll be hooking up with designers Tory Burch and Georgina Chapman of Marchesa. Savage tells us the fashion cameos have to do with Serena’s “decision [in terms of college] and what happens to her in the first couple of episodes.”

But, a reconciliation with Dan Humphrey (Penn Badgley) won’t be in her future [DASH] at least not this year — Dan is busy romancing Hilary Duff’s character Olivia Burke in the Village.

Then there’s Jenny Humphrey (Taylor Momsen), learning the ropes of Queen Bee. “We really do see Jenny struggling with what she is going to do with this power that has been given to her,” says
Savage. “She is back at Constance and now she is a junior — the same age as our other girls when the show started — so we have lots of story areas for Jenny that are opening up.” And one in particular that will make a
comeback: Jenny’s fashion career! “As we get more into the season, that is going to be a bigger and bigger story,” says Savage. – Andrea DeSimone

Tell us: Do you think Serena will stay in New York? Will Blair fit in at NYU? What kind of Queen will Jenny be? Who are you most excited to see return?

Gossip Girl – Stars Talk New Season’s Twists and Turns

The third season of Gossip Girl, which began filming last month in New York, will include even more twists than the previous two, says Jessica Szohr, who plays Vanessa on the CW show. “It’s like a new chapter in everyone’s life,” Szohr, 24, told PEOPLE Wednesday at a Charlotte Russe fashion event in New York. “We’re all off to college, we’re working. There’s a lot of guest stars coming on, new relationships are formed.” In addition to Hilary Duff, former Privileged actress Joanna Garcia will play a new love interest for heartthrob Chace Crawford. Garcia plays a Texas socialite who rivals Crawford’s Nate Archibald in wealth and status — and she just might be off-limits. “We have sort of a Romeo and Juliet love story,” Garcia tells PEOPLE.

While romances bloom on set during the new season, the off-screen romances between stars Blake Lively and Penn Badgley and Szohr and Ed Westwick make the cast a tight-knit bunch. But Garcia said the close group has welcomed her with open arms. “I was really nervous coming in,” says Garcia, who is currently slated to appear in four episodes. “[But] they’ve been so warm and welcoming and lovely. It’s been so nice. They’ve been making me feel like New York isn’t such a big city.” Things won’t bet getting so warm and fuzzy on screen, however, as Szohr says there are plenty of surprises in store. “Someone ends up not being who they say they are,” she reveals. “It’s just lots of drama and crazy stuff.”

Also crazy: Gossip Girl’s fans, who clamor to catch a glimpse of the hot young cast while their shooting on location in the Big Apple. “It’s been nuts. I don’t know what’s happened over our break,” Szorh says. “Coming back, none of us have ever seen it like how it’s been. But it’s a good thing. We’re blessed to be working on a fun cool show with cool people in New York.” – Kelsey Witten Tell us: Are you excited for the new season?

Sorry, Hilary Duff haters, but Duff joins the Gossip Girl cast as movie star Olivia, and she’ll be getting her movie-star cooties on the entire cast, not just Vanessa and Dan. Also on Gossip Girl this season, Chuck and Blair are totally getting married and having a million babies. (OK, not that, but they are staying tight. Yay!) And believe it or not, the show really is trending away from “Dan and Serena are the one true pairing of Gossip Girl.” Certainly, that arc might turn back sometime in the future, but for now the show is trying to establish their separate identities, apart from their on-again, off-again shenanigans.

Will Michelle Trachtenberg bail on ‘Gossip Girl’ now that Maura Tierney’s illness has pushed ‘Mercy’ from midseason to fall?

Source: Zap2It’s Korbi TV

Due to an undisclosed medical issue for star Maura Tierney, NBC’s new drama “Parenthood” has been pushed to midseason and Michelle Trachtenberg‘s new series “Mercy” will be bumped up to launch in September instead of January. The cast and crew of the medical show have been asked to start work much earlier than expected in order to make a fall debut. But what does this mean for Trachtenberg’s upcoming stint on “Gossip Girl“? Will she still be able to appear as Blair’s roommate in the three-episode arc we were promised? According to sources close to the series, there should not be a conflict, as Trachtenberg’s “Mercy” contract included a clause allowing her time off to shoot “GG.” Sorry, Ms. Waldorf.

Hilary Duff Joins Gossip Girl

Update From E!Online Inside sources tell us exclusively that Duff’s character Olivia is a movie star who just wants to live a simple peasant girl’s life at college and date a simple unfamous guy. Lucky for her then that Dan doesn’t know who she is and that he wants to hook up with her. Yep, not only are Dan and Serena all permanently broken up, but Dan is stepping out on Serena with this new girl Olivia. E!Online

Is the Upper East Side big enough for Serena, Blair and the Duffster?! We’re about to find out because the onetime tween sensation is joining Gossip Girl for a multi-episode arc, sources confirm exclusively. The actress-designer-pop chanteuse will play Olivia Burke, a movie star who enrolls at NYU in search of a traditional college experience. She ends up rooming with Vanessa (Jessica Szohr) so it’s safe to say she’ll be majoring in Drama! Duff will debut in this season’s fourth episode, slated to air Oct. 5. Gossip producers spotted an opening in Duff’s schedule after NBC passed on her comedy pilot Barely Legal. What say you, Gossip gurus? Do you approve of Duff’s casting? Thoughts on who she’ll be paired with romantically? (My guess: Dan.) Sound off below! Source: EW

‘Gossip Girl’ scoop: Joanna Garcia is Nate’s new GF!

And you thought Nate Archibald was privileged before. Sources confirm that Joanna Garcia, star of The CW’s axed-too-soon Privileged, has booked a four-episode arc on Gossip Girl as a love interest for Chace Crawford’s affluent alter ego. Garcia will play Bree Buckley, an irreverent, slightly evil Miss America-type who hails from a conservative Southern family. She’ll first appear in the Sept. 14 season premiere. Props to The CW for knowing a good thing when they see it!

Can we assume that Gossip Girl‘s Serena won’t be attending Brown now that she’s off chasing Daddy Dearest? MICKEY: Here’s what Blake Lively told us about Serena’s plans in the wake of being slapped with that paternal jaw-dropper. “She’s thrown for this huge loop,” she says. “There are a lot of things she’s going to find out about her mother and about her background.” In other words, Serena will not be heading to Providence in the fall… but she might not be in New York either.

Brace yourselves, Gossip Girl fans, because one of the series’ key couples may not be getting back together! Yep, we’re hearing not-so-encouraging things about the future of Dan and Serena, and we’ll tell you what new paradigm they are living under next season.

Any news on Gossip Girl yet? What about Dan and Serena for season three? It’s too early to say for sure, but our sources tell us that next year on Gossip Girl does not look like the Year of “Dan Serena Dan Serena whoo!” At this point it looks like you can expect more of a brother-sister vibe from Dan and Serena (remember, they do share a half-sibling, Chris Riggi‘s Scott), rather than a whole epic love story thing, à la Chuck and Blair.

Is Georgina going to be Blair’s roommate next season on Gossip Girl? While we know Michelle Trachtenberg is tied to NBC’s new medical drama, Mercy, she will be causing some trouble for Blair.

Gossip’s Girls Talk About Chuck and Blair’s Future… With Georgina?

On the fitting green carpet at the CW upfront this morning, Leighton Meester couldn’t wait to share her thoughts on the future of Chuck and Blair, and Blake Lively weighed in on Georgina’s return.

When last we saw them, Chuck was showering Blair with her favorite treats and, more importantly, finally saying those three little words. But alas, can Bluck really work in the real world?

“Chuck and Blair holding hands, Chuck and Blair going to the movies—isn’t that what he says would be unrealistic?” Meester tells us. “I feel like a tumultuous relationship is a-brewin’, but that’s what drama is.”

The actress herself, who recently went blonde for a movie but promised to go back to brunette ASAP, says she isn’t sure what she hopes will come for the couple.

“I want us to see them together, but at the same time, the reason why they’re so good is why they can’t be together,” she says.

Unfortunately, both Blake and Leighton agree that Georgina’s return could cast a long shadow over Chuck and Blair’s future.

“Chuck and Blair are finally together, but yet Georgina is back to screw up her life with that major vendetta,” Lively tells us.

Despite the cliffhanger, whether or not Michelle Trachtenberg will be back on the show remains in question. The former Buffy actress is starring in Mercy, a nursing drama that NBC recently picked up.

Another big challenge ahead for our favorite Upper East Siders may be higher education.

“A few other people are going to college,” Meester says. “I don’t know if they’re going to stay.”

Speaking of college, Penn Badgley tells us that Dan Humphrey’s half brother, Scott (Chris Riggi) might be up to no good with his sneaking around New York: “He’s gotta skulk…He’s a Humphrey.”

And speaking of Humphreys, could Dan be coming around to the idea of Nate (Chace Crawford) getting with Little J (Taylor Momsen)? According to Penn, “He should. Nate’s a solid dude.”

So, is Dan done thinking that Jenny’s too young for Nate? “Probably not,” says Penn. “But I personally think that Dan should relax. Dan is too uptight.”

Last but not least, in addition to more Georgina and Rufus-Lily spawn in season three, there is one indisputably awesome character we can promise will be getting plenty of screen time: Countess Dorota (Zuzanna Szadkowski).

“I think she’s going to be around a lot more next season,” says Leighton.

Gossip Girl – Latest from Ausiello

Questions: I just finished watching the Gossip Girl finale, and it was awesome. My question for you is about Georgina: At the end of the episode she announced she was going to be Blair’s roommate at NYU — strongly implying that she would be a presence, if not a regular character, in season 3. But Michelle Trachtenberg is in NBC’s new fall drama, Mercy. What does this mean about Georgina and Gossip Girl? Ausiello: It means producers thought ahead and made sure Trachtenberg negotiated a three-episode Gossip Girl “out” in her Mercy contract.

Bissett reprises her role as Jane Andrews Mancini, sister to Laura Leighton’s Sydney Andrews, in at least one episode and may do more, according to a source.

Ms. Daphne Zuniga — maybe better known to the younger crowd as Brooke Davis’ bitch of a mom on “One Tree Hill” — will reprise the role of Jo on The CW’s “Melrose Place” spin off this fall. Zuniga will guest in two episodes, the network confirms. Wonder if her storyline will intersect with Michael, Jane or dearly departed Sydney’s?

The executives have been talking about the possibility to bring over an established character on ‘90210’ to jack up the rating of new ‘Melrose Place’.

A '90210' Actor May Cross Over to 'Melrose Place'
See larger image The talks about a crossover event between “” and “” are heating up with the latest scoop from TV Guide suggesting that it would be a ‘he’. Questions were thrown about which character from “90210” will help to revamp the spin-off to ’90s “Melrose Place”. Ryan Eggold, who plays Ryan Matthews, has been deemed to be ‘the chosen one’. In response to this, Eggold said, “You know, I’ve been hearing this and I don’t know if it’s true either. But it will be fun to play this character Ryan as a twenty something in a show like that. Just to kind of open him up a little bit. I’d love to sort of check out a different passage of Ryan.” The first hint of a crossover came from Naomi Clark depicter on “90210”, . She said last month, “The producers have actually mentioned that to us. We don’t know who or where or what or when yet, but they want that very much.” Back in 1992, made a crossover to the original “Melrose Place” while she was playing Kelly Taylor on “Beverly Hills 90210”. Both “90210” and “Melrose Place” will premiere on September 8 on The CW.

MAJOR spoiler alert: ‘Melrose’ twist revealed!

Source: The Ausiello Files

Melroseplacefight_lMelrose Place is back to its old dirty tricks. The CW’s forthcoming reboot of the classic ’90s sudser will launch this fall with the kind of bombshell revelation that would make Kimberly Shaw’s legendary scar bust open. Unfortunately, unlike that iconic cliffhanger, there ain’t a chance in hell this twist will remain unspoiled before it airs in September. Heck, I wouldn’t be surprised if this thing leaks in the next week or so. Or today. Or right now after the jump. (Yes, that was your warning. Seriously, this is a gigantic spoiler, so head for the exit if you don’t want to know the bombshell at the center of Melrose 2.0.)

The Melrose pilot — snippets of which were unveiled to advertisers at The CW’s upfront presentation this morning — has been shrouded in the kind of secrecy more typical of an episode of Lost than a trashy primetime soap. “The pilot script isn’t being released to anyone — not even to writers who are meeting on the show,” an industry insider recently whispered. “There’s apparently some twist involving Sydney that they’re trying to keep under wraps.”

It’s under wraps no more: Someone murdered Sydney! Again!

Sources confirm that the dead body found floating face down in Melrose‘s trademark pool in the opening minutes belongs to none other than Laura Leighton’s bitchtastic ex-stripper. I’m told her death will set in motion a season-long murder mystery that finds nearly all of the show’s principal characters — particularly Syd’s ex, Michael (Thomas Calabro) — a possible suspect.

I know what you’re probably thinking: They brought Sydney back to life only to kill her off in the first 10 minutes?! Sorta. Yes, she dies (for real) right out of the gate, but Leighton will be sticking around. An insider confirms that Sydney will be seen via flashback in multiple episodes. Said flashbacks will explain where’s she’s been and what really happened after she became road kill more than a decade ago.

I know what you’re also probably thinking: Is this the story Heather Locker was pitched and ultimately turned down? Yes, that was supposed to be Amanda Woodward’s bloodied corpse floating in the pool. But when Locklear nixed the offer, producers approached Leighton. (Mystery solved: Locklear killed Sydney!)

Thoughts on the latest bomb dropped in TV’s most famous courtyard? Does this make you more or less excited to see Melrose 2.0? And are you relieved Locklear turned her back on the gig since this means Amanda will live to raise hell another day? Sound off below!

‘Melrose Place’: I’ve got the pilot script & I’m answering all your Sydney questions

Source: Zap2It’s Korbi TV

Is Sydney dead again? Is the “Melrose” spin off murdering her within the first few minutes of its pilot episode? Well, I happen to have the highly-classified script in my hot little hands and will be answering every “Melrose”-related question that’s come my way today. Ew, stop drooling…

Need your help confirming this is NOT true: There is a rumor that Sydney is dead in the pool in the Melroseopening. Please tell me they are not doing something this stupid. Um, she’s the main reason we want to watch it!
Yes, sadly — as EW.com reported on Friday — this seems to be the case. I had the great fortune of receiving and reading the script, which has been shrouded in secrecy, a few weeks back and when I reached the last line and there had been no mention of my girl Sydney, I had the startling realization that the chick they’d been calling by another name throughout the 50 plus pages was really the red-headed baby sister of Ms. Jane Mancini. And the realization was startling because, yes, this character is found face down dead in the pool just as Act 1 ends.

You have to explain this rumor that Sydney is killed at the very beginning of the new “Melrose Place”! How is that possible? She’s not going to be on the new series? She’s not going to even be in the first episode that much? I’m confused. Sydney — who’s probably just called by another name in the script I have because it was written before Laura Leighton signed on… though I suppose it’s possible that Syd’s trying to conceal her identity — appears throughout the episode in flashbacks both before and after her death and word is that she will continue to. Her murder is apparently the season-long mystery which must be solved.

Who is the blonde kid that Sydney is getting sexy with in the “Melrose Place” pictures you posted?
That would be David (Shaun Sipos) , the 21-year-old rich dude whom we see with Syd pre-pool scene. Definite suspect, but one that’s way too obvious. Plus, he seems to care about her quite a bit. In the script, he’s busy banging some hot blonde in a public bathroom when he gets an urgent text from her, pulls his pants up and rushes to her side. And that night, she tells him she’s done something terrible. She says that she didn’t mean to hurt anyone, but she was “trapped” …And hours later, she’s dunzo. By the way, David’s last name is “Patterson” in the script I have, linking him to Jake Hansen (Grant Show), but they’re now giving the character a new last name. David’s jerk of a father is in the pilot and he ain’t Jake.

Does Ryan Matthews from “90210” make the cross over to “Melrose Place”? It looks like he lives in a building with a courtyard pool!
Ryan doesn’t appear in the pilot script that I read, but I do believe CW Pres Dawn Ostroff said they are contemplating crossovers. Maybe he killed Sydney!

Is it me or does Ashlee Simpson look like a completely different person in the pictures for the new “Melrose Place”]?
Yeah, I think it’s the red hair she’s rocking that’s making her somewhat unrecognizable. And that red hair is no coincidence. Her character has got those colored locks for a reason…

Ugly Betty Season Finale Episode Recap: “Curveball / The Fall Issue” Molly Dies & Matt Breaks-Up with Betty

‘Ugly Betty’ finale: Farewell to first loves

Source: Zap2it.com Recaps

“Ugly Betty” packed in many rather upsetting plots for this two-hour finale, and luckily it’s coming back next season, so it won’t all be for naught. Let’s start with the (relatively) less upsetting story line, shall we?

Quarreling queens

Wilhelmina gets in good with Cal Hartley’s ex-wife Victoria (by playing tennis, singing torch songs and drinking midday) and discovers Claire and Cal had a fling back in the day that produced an offspring that Claire supposedly put up for adoption in another state since she was married to Bradford at the time. Wil tries to use this info as blackmail, but it turns out that Cal knows about the pregnancy … and the abortion, not adoption.

So with no Hartley/Meade lovechild out there and a suspicious boss, what does Willie have? Not much except for her fabulous style and burning sense of preservation. She hires someone to track down Connor (yes!) in order to get back the money he stole, thereby eliminating the need for Cal’s pesky influence and apparent preference for Claire. Oh, and we learn at the very end that Claire has been lying to everyone: There was indeed a baby that came to term and was adopted. Dum, dum, dum!!!!

Melancholy Molly

So, by now we know that Molly isn’t dead, scaring the bejeebus out of me last episode when she collapsed in a pitiful heap after marrying Daniel. Every moment is precious now, and is it just me? We know how this is going to end. We know it will be this episode, and yet, I just had to watch it unfold:

Daniel becomes a minor celebrity since the former playboy has committed himself to marriage — thus becoming a media darling and even landing an interview on “The View.”(pointless cameos). Ugh. Molly’s acting weird, always talking about who he’ll hook up with after her death. It’s awkward. It’s heart-wrenching. And when Daniel’s wedding issue, with Molly on the cover as a bride, wins a prestigious award, we know that the smiling Molly in the audience is a ghost. I knew, and as soon as he got home, he learned the truth. Bye-bye, Molly. You made Daniel a better person.

Betty is busted

And how about our girl Betty? Her story isn’t as tragic, but it’s still not full of puppies and rainbow. She has some pretty stressful times with her work, namely her attempts to move up. As the winner of the YETI final project, she gets a ton of interviews and even aces the one with the New York Review, until her mentor Jodie (that bitch!) snakes the job out from under her. Later, when an important Mode features editor dies (R.I.P.), she and Marc compete for the job, and eventually she emerges victorious. All smiles now, right? Wait for it …

Betty is horribly conflicted since she’s just agreed to move in with the wonderfully dedicated and sweet Matt, but what’s this? Henry is in town — cute, bespectacled and suddenly buff Henry! A double date at a Mets game has our girl’s head whirling since she still has fluttery feelings for the accountant extraordinaire — and the feeling’s mutual. But in the end, they both acknowledge that it was a first love thing and part with a yearning goodbye kiss.

Unfortunately, sensitive, dedicated and oh so mercurial Matt witnesses the final exchange. He eventually confronts her with this, and even though she declares that she’s moved on, he has doubts. Matt brings these feelings to his dad — what?!? — who plants even more doubt and worse, ruthlessness into his son’s head. When Betty admits that she’ll always harbor a bit of love for Henry, Matt becomes the monster that I never saw coming: He breaks off their relationship and declares he’s going to be her new boss, since he accepted his dad’s offer to work for Meade.

The Beautiful Life – Latest on Casting and Mischa Barton

#fullpost{display:inline;}The Beautiful Life will go on, with or without its troubled star Mischa Barton. Although reps for The CW and CBS Television Studios declined to comment, multiple sources confirm that producers of the upcoming model-centric drama are quietly readying a Plan B in light of the former O.C. actress’ current medical woes. Said plan involves the addition of a new female character to fill the void left by Barton. While not a direct recast, the new recurring character — tentatively named Jane — would bear a striking resemblance to Barton’s experienced supermodel, Sonja Stone. Casting is underway.

Production on Beautiful Life, originally scheduled to begin on July 22, was pushed back a week — but not because of Barton. Per a spokesperson for The CW, the show’s sets were not ready for their close-up. Production is not set to resume the last week of July ahead of a Sept. 16 launch. Barton was hospitalized last week after calling the L.A.P.D. with an unspecified health problem. Reports that she has been placed under involuntary psychiatric hold at an L.A. hospital have not been confirmed by her reps.

Ausiello:
Casey is quickly becoming Greek‘s Joey Potter, what with all the oscillating between men. So who does she finally pick?

Sent to an emotional tailspin, she makes a huge decision about her relationship with Max and her lingering feelings for Cappie.

Spoiler Alert. The outcome is revealed via a clip released by EW’s Michael Ausiello where Casey edges Cappie into a closet to reveal her feelings. She kisses him and says “Something happened. I almost died, because of that manhole.” They laugh before Casey continues, “But, almost dying in that manhole made me realize that I could die at any time. I could slip in the shower. And I’ve been waiting all this time to feel the way with Max that I’ve always had with you. And if it’s the end of the world, I want to be with you.”

Meanwhile, Ashleigh faces her own punishment with Pan Hellenic after a complaint is lodged by Frannie for the Homecoming Float sabotage. Ashleigh turns to Casey to help fight the charge, but when Casey gets caught up in her own personal drama, she leaves Ashleigh to face Frannie alone.

Dale has trouble keeping his cougar girlfriend’s sexual advances at bay and Calvin tries his best to resist hooking up with his new hot roommate, Grant. Dale convinces Calvin to go in on a “purity pledge” partnership so they can help each resist their most recent temptations.

The third season will take over starting Monday, August 31. Sparing a word about the new chapter is Casey’s depicter who said, “I think the next season coming up we’re going to have a little more, at least for my character, it’s going to be a little more comedy. Maybe a little less love triangle story line. I’ve had like 80 triangles.”

What can you tell us about the Greek finale? Frannie is finally leaving Cyprus Rhodes University, but not before she stirs up some trouble, causing Ashleigh to almost get expelled from school. Also, Calvin becomes the first gay purity club member, just so he won’t sleep with one of his fraternity bros. What Calvin didn’t plan on was Dale pretending to be his boyfriend.

How about some scoop for the CRU crew?  What’s in store for the Greek finale? Anything on the Cappie-Casey front? Casey (Spencer Grammer) has a near-death experience in the season finale of Greek, which leads her to admitting that she’s in love with Cappie (Scott Michael Foster), but he actually shoots her down. That doesn’t mean she’s staying with Max either though (Hint: Michael Rady is on Melrose Place next season). Source: Kristin on E!Online

The season finale centers around the End of the World Party at KT where the gang is faced with this hypothetical quandary: “If the world were to end tomorrow, what would I want to do?” That paves the way for “some major developments in the Cappie-Casey-Max department,” previews series creator Sean Smith, “as well the return of one of our favorite teachers and the bittersweet departure of one of our favorite snarky sorority sisters.” Source: The Ausiello Files

“The finale has a really good cliffhanger,” Scott Michael Foster (Cappie) revealed at Saturday’s GLAAD Awards in Los Angeles. “And Jesse McCartney plays a really big part of that cliffhanger. It has a lot to do with him and Rusty …. I guess I get some action, too. In my women’s studies class I’m the only guy, so the ladies are like sitting ducks. Of course, he will always be at least partly stuck on Casey.” What’s Casey doing while Cappie’s getting busy? She’s getting busy herself! “She gets a lot of action … from multiple sources,” confirmed Spencer Grammer. “Cappie is her soul mate, but she’s young and she doesn’t always see that.” Source: The Ausiello Files

The Winner of American Idol is…. Kris Allen!

‘American Idol’ crowns a winner — Kris Allen!

Source: Zap2it.com Recaps

Tonight “American Idol” crowned Kris Allen as the winner of season 8. Congratulations, Kris!

Ryan welcomes us to the circus that is the “American Idol” finale show. He informs us that just under 100 million votes came in, which brings the season total to 624 million votes, which is a record.

We now say hello to the judges. Randy is dressed like the Nutty Professor, Kara and Paula are beautiful and Simon has on the same clothes from last night. Their video montages are hilarious. Randy’s is full of “for me,” Kara is full of “sweetie” and “honey,” Paula’s is full of big-word salad, and Simon’s is full of all the times he either didn’t hear or wasn’t paying attention.

Ryan brings out the finalists. They both seem a little shell-shocked. We check in with Conway, Arkansas and Mikalah Gordon. Mikalah has become very monochromatic and appears to have stolen Lisa Rinna’s lips. In San Diego, we have the awesome Carly Smithson.

We kick off the myriad of performances with the Top 13 singing “So What” while dressed all in white. The choreography is hilarious, it’s like the Show Choir Rejects. And then Allison yells at us and there’s a scary crotch-shot when she kicks her leg up. Alexis looks so hot and I am saddened that she is not on the tour. This group seems to be having so much fun together, I want to go on tour with them! I can carry an amp or something!

David Cook time. He performs “Permanent,” which is a beautiful piano number, very subdued and not at all what I was expecting. Very nice.The rock part kicks in on the bridge and there’s a couple great big notes, then a subdued ending. Really enjoyed that, David. Seacrest and David inform us that “Permanent” will be on iTunes after the show and the proceeds will go to ABCSquared (I can’t do a little 2 on my computer), which is a cancer foundation. David’s brother recently passed away from brain cancer. Awww, I’m all sniffly over here.

Now we have one of my least-favorite filler segments, the Golden Idol awards. I really don’t need to revisit the crazypants people from this season. Sigh. The nominees for Outstanding Male are Will Kunick (who sang “Mad World” very badly), Michael Gurr (who creepily moaned… something), Elijah Scarlett (Barry White, minus the vocal talent), Dean-Anthony Bradford (who shot the couch and made a jacket, then screamed some stuff at us with his scary monkey face. Also, his “agent” emailed me to inform me to look out for him on Idol), and Norman Gentle (I’m sure no reminder is necessary). Norman Gentle wins, strips off his clothes and sings “And I’m Telling You I’m Not Going.” This was mildly funny the first time, but I’m really over it.

Once that trainwreck is over, we have Lil Rounds singing with Queen Latifah on “Cue the Rain.” It’s pretty good, actually. Lil should be in some kind of Destiny’s Child girl group because she sounds so much better when she has a buddy to sing with. They have some decent harmony and sound excellent when they sing in unison. Outfit-wise, Lil looks awesome in a black & white bustier top. As for Queen L… I’ll let Alert Commenter Mel say it for me: “WHY is Queen Latifah in that unitard.” Seriously.

Now we have Jason Mraz, Anoop Desai and Alexis Grace performing “I’m Yours.” Man, I wish Kris Allen had done this on Idol this season. Why couldn’t this be his duet tonight? Bah. Anyway, it’s nice with Anoop and Alexis, even if she’s dressed a like Pixie Hooker. Oh, then the other Idols join them for backup.

Kris Allen’s video montage. It’s a lot of Kris being adorable. He then performs “Kiss a Girl” with Keith Urban. They sound great together and are totally rocking their guitars, what an excellent duet.

**You know that commercial for Electrolux with Kelly Ripa? I can’t decide if she really is the perfect perky housewife or if she is downing pain killers with vodka and beating her kids with wire hangers.**

**Also, the Boy Band Frostee commercial for Wendy’s? Would’ve been sort-of funny like 7 years ago.**

Next the female members of the Top 13 are doing “Glamorous.” Allison looks like she forgot to put her dress on, it’s a black slip over black nylons and boots. Fergie comes strutting out singing “Big Girls Don’t Cry” and I am thinking, “Man, do you remember how cute she was on Kids, Incorporated?” Nowadays, she is in the dictionary next to the word “Butterface.” This leads into the Black Eyed Peas. Raise your hand if you knew they were still performing together? Yeah, me neither.

Time for more Golden Idols. For Best Attitude, we get Bikini Girl (I hate her… so much… it flames… FLAMES… on the side of my face… heaving breaths), Alexis Cohen (get this girl some medication), and Tiffany Shedd (does she sing “Because of you I learned to PEE on the same side so I don’t get hurt?”). Katrina wins and struts out onstage in her bikini with what look like softballs on her chest. God, she’s gross.

She gets to come out and sing “Visions of Love” and she is still a singer who has a couple good spots and some vibrato and thinks she can sing. THEN Kara Dioguardi comes out to sing with/against Katrina and it’s great. Katrina just has to stand there and look like a complete ass in a bikini, which is really all the poor girl is good for, so whatever. During the big glory note, Kara unbuttons her dress to reveal a bikini. Apparently Ryan and the judges bet her she wouldn’t do it, so now they are donating to her favorite charity.

I just… I don’t even know what is happening right now. I feel like I’ve fallen down the rabbit by way of the skank bus and some little person is going to welcome me to the Black Lodge and speak backwards. When do we find out the winner? WHEN? Oh my god, we’re only half-way through y’all.

Allison is back, Allison is back! She’s doing “Time After Time” with Cyndi Lauper (hopefully not drunk). In fact, Cyndi is rocking a… lap guitar? No matter, it’s still cool, and they both sound great. What an awesome duet, especially the harmony on the chorus and their alternating on the end. So gorgeous! And thank God they didn’t do some creepy Phantom-Ingenue thing with her, like poor Katharine McPhee had to do with Meatloaf.

We check in with the Allen family and Lambert family. Kris wins the Adorable Family Contest, but he’s so adorable himself that I wouldn’t be surprised if his mother was Swedish and his father was a tiny little bunny.

Danny Gokey time. He’s doing “Hello” and it’s a real shame they didn’t have a blind woman making a bust of him out of clay right there on stage. That would’ve been awesome. For all of you who are just convinced I have a Danny Gokey VooDoo doll in my room, I think he sounds great. I got a little spoiled on this song because of David Cook’s version, but Danny still does a great job. Lionel Ritchie comes out and they sing “Just Go” together. Does anybody else get Lionel Ritchie and Smokey Robinson confused sometimes? Just me?

They transition into “All Night Long.” Hey, remember that commercial where noctural animals sang this in night vision? My brother once said, “I had the TV muted the first time I saw that commercial and it scared the bejeesus out of me.” Heh heh. Lionel and Danny seem to having a great time together, it’s delightful to watch.

Up next is Adam Lambert’s video montage. The highlight is when he absolutely scared the poop out of Randy Travis. Snerk. Tonight he sings “Beth” by KISS and he is dressed like Riff-Raff at the end of Rocky Horror, which is at least a branch-out from Dr. Frank-n-furter. KISS then comes out, which is AWESOME. I did not actually know they were going to be on the show.They do “Detroit Rock City” and “Rock n Roll All Night (and Party Every Day).”

Adam sounds great and I try not to be distracted by the one guitar player who is way too old and hairy to be wearing a chest-less onesie. I kind of forgot how much KISS looks like Ax, Smash and Crush in Demolition.

Carlos Santana time. He’s doing “Black Magic Woman” or “The Song From the Creepy Lizard Sobe Commercials.” I was starting to think apparently Carlos Santana doesn’t HAVE to perform with any Idols, sort-of an “I’m Carlos Santana, bitch!” Chappelle show thing, but then Matt Giraud pops on-screen and I realize I am mistaken.

All the Idols come out and groove to “Smooth” and Jorge gets a nice solo. Like they went, hey here’s a Latin artist, let’s give the Hispanic guy a solo! Oh god, did you just see Danny Gokey thrust his crotch on “make it REAL?” Scary stuff. No more crotch-thrusting, please.

Star Watch: Heather Locklear, Camryn Manheim (two nights in a row, Camryn!), possibly Mandisa, and Courteney Cox (I love you, Courteney Cox!) Update: thanks to Alert Commenter Sissers, that was not Courteney and was, in fact, Janice Dickenson. I am *deeply* shamed. Guh. I hate that woman.

The final Ford Music Video is “I Will Remember You” by Kris and Adam and it sounds fabulous! Put that on iTunes, please. The actual video is a montage of this season’s other Ford Music Videos.

David Cook then “surprises” the final two with brand-new 2010 Ford Fusion Hybrids. That’s awesome, though the surprise element is suspect.

STEVE MARTIN TIME! I love him so much. He “gets” to perform with Michael Sarver and Megan Joy. I kid, I kid, but still… out of all the Top 10, Steve Martin gets them? They do an okay job, but there are some REAL rough spots many, many rough spots. Oh dear lord. When asked who is going to win, Steve replied, “Well, I know it’s a long shot but I hope I do.” Heh heh.

The male Idols now perform “Do Ya Think I’m Sexy” while dressed like the Reservoir Dogs. I think Anoop is Mr. Blonde, he’s got a little crazy lurking in there. Kris is Mr. Orange and Adam is his Mr. White. Rod Stewart arrives in the same jacket that creepy Dean-Anthony Whatever had on earlier. He sings “Maggie May,” though, which is just a great song. Uh… is Rod Stewart drunk?

Star Watch: over the shoulder of some bleached-blonde guy I should probably know, Michael Cera appears to be in the house

Oh god, another Golden Idol. Outstanding Female is between Chelsea Marquardt (the Prince from “Shrek?”), Irene Anguelova (I didn’t know Moaning Myrtle was ever on this show), Dana Moreno, and Tatiana del Toro. Gee, I wonder who will win? I think if I had to choose between listening to Norman Gentle and Tatiana del Toro, I would choose… having my fingernails ripped off one-by-one.

Tatiana wins and makes a break for the stage while Ryan tries to go to commercial and some security guards try to catch her. It’s stupid and planned and C’MON ALREADY.

Star Watch: Ruben Studdard, with his mouth hanging open at the shenanigans this show has come to since his tenure on Idol. You and me both, Ruben.

Now Adam and Kris sing “We Are the Champions” together. Kris gets the good-for-his-voice lower stuff then Adam takes the higher stuff, it works really well. Then the giant Idol choir comes out and the smoke machine kicks into overdrive and some old dude rocker is playing guitar (sorry, if it’s Queen all I got is Freddy Mercury and he’s dead and though I wouldn’t put it past Idol to resurrect someone, I don’t think it’s him.) and the lights are going crazy and I think I’m having a seizure.

Suddenly there are hands being waved and bright light like I’m crossing over and Kris and Adam are holding hands and a Coca-Cola just popped right out of my computer and peace was declared in the Middle East and I’m crying and I think I peed my pants a little. It’s TOO MUCH. TOO MUCH!

So it’s finally time, guys. We’re here! The moment’s arrived! Before the results, Simon says, “I don’t normally mean this, I thought you were both brilliant. Unusually incredibly nice people and I think that both of you should be very proud of what you achieved last night and the future’s all yours.” Awwww.

And your 2009 “American Idol” winner is… KRIS ALLEN!

He’s at a total loss for words. Adam was totally happy for him, which is so great to see. They laugh together after Kris gets his new “American Idol” Winner’s Trophy and then he sings his coronation song. It’s better than last night, did they lower the key? Kris leads the Idols out to the stage in the audience like a little Pied Piper of Cuteness. There are sparks everywhere and lots of big hugs, the best being with his wife after the song ends.

For all the outraged Adam fans, this year in particular I really don’t think it matters who wins. PS: Don’t forget that both Kris and Adam’s versions of “No Boundaries” are available on iTunes, as is David Cook’s “Permanent” and all the money from “Permanent” goes towards ABCSquared.

The CW Fall Schedule

The CW is leaning more into the women demographic with the inclusion of fashion-oriented ‘Beautiful Life’ and the 2.0 version of ‘Melrose Place’.

The CW's Official Fall 2009 Schedule Listed
See larger image The CW’s presentation of the Fall 2009 line-up makes it official that “” spin-off will not be picked up anytime soon and “” is formally dismissed. Instead, the network opts to add up to the list, three brand new series ““, “” and ““.

The spin-off dubbed as “Lily”, was already previewed in an episode of the original series but there were rumors floating that it would not be picked up at all. This is apparently not true. CW President Dawn Ostroff said that this is “the toughest year” they ever had because the selection of pilots is “really, really good”. She continued, “We do have room for another midseason show. We have some reality, and we’ll probably have another scripted drama. We’re just going to take a beat and see where we are. In all honesty, I think the Gossip Girl spinoff is the show that we would love to be able to find a place for as the season goes on.”

Meanwhile, “Vampire”, “Melrose” and “Beautiful” are paired with the network’s established series which have the same tone. “Melrose” is taking the Tuesdays slot with “” which is also a refurbished version of ’90s series. “Beautiful”, which is about fashion models, is put on Wednesday with the lead-in from “” while “Vampire” is going to precede “” on Thursdays.

With the excluding of “” and ““, the fall schedule subsequently is packed with dramas and no comedy. But Ostroff defended that it is “the most cohesive lineup” they’ve ever had. The slogan they would like to opt this time around would be, “TV to Talk About”.

CW upfront notes: ‘Smallville,’ ‘Supernatural,’ ‘90210’-‘Melrose’ crossovers

Source: Zap2It’s Korbi TV

The news coming out of The CW’s upfront wasn’t just about the new shows. Click through for notes on “Smallville,” “Supernatural” and more.

“Smallville” is moving to Friday nights in the fall, but that shouldn’t be taken as a sign that the network’s longest-running current series is on its way out.

“No,” CW Entertainment president Dawn Ostroff says. “First of all, it’s way too early” to talk about at the moment, as the show’s producers haven’t yet mapped out the storyline for season nine. “But no, it’s not the last season,” she adds. “Hopefully not.” (For what it’s worth, star Tom Welling has reportedly signed on for two more seasons.)

“Smallville’s” former Thursday-night companion, “Supernatural,” is entering its fifth season in the fall — and according to creator Eric Kripke’s original blueprint for the show, five seasons would tell the whole story of the Winchester boys. As with “Smallville,” Ostroff says it’s too early to make a definitive statement on whether the show could go on longer.

“We’ll see how the season goes,” she says. “But they did a really good job creatively this year, and I think it really paid off in the ratings.” “Supernatural” really was in a groove this season, but last week’s finale basically set up the coming of the apocalypse. After Sam and Dean battle Lucifer, are there really any other demons to slay, so to speak?

Another veteran show, “One Tree Hill,” is dealing with the departures of Chad Michael Murray and Hilarie Burton from the cast. Ostroff is sorry to see them go, but she also thinks their leaving represents an opportunity to freshen up the series.

“We tried to get them to stay, and we would have been thrilled if they wanted to,” Ostroff says. “I think the show moving into its seventh year was very open to sort of reinventing itself. One thing I have to give [creator] Mark Schwahn a lot of credit for is he’s kept the show fresh all these years. … I think Mark is excited about maybe bringing on a few new characters, which is what we’re going to do now that we’re finishing the pilot process.

“If you look at shows like ‘ER’ and [others] that go on for many, many years, a lot of these casts go through different people, and it really helps to keep shows fresh. So we’re said to see [Murray and Burton] go, and grateful for everything they did for the show, but excited about moving on and seeing who else is going to join the cast.”

The original “Melrose Place” was spun off from “Beverly Hills, 90210,” and since the new “90210” takes place in the same world, we were wondering if there’s a possibility for characters from that show to pop up on the new “Melrose,” or vice versa. Answer: Very possibly.

“We actually have talked about character crossovers,” Ostroff says. “It’s not in the pilot, but I think there will be a lot of opportunities for us to do it.”

That could pose a paradoxical problem, though, if Rob Estes ever comes near the apartment complex. Estes played Kyle McBride for much of the original “Melrose Place’s” run, and he now plays West Bev High Principal Harry Wilson on “90210.” So if Harry ever showed up at Melrose Place in search of, say, his daughter Annie (Shenae Grimes), the entire fictional universe could collapse on itself.

The CW’s fall 2009 schedule, night by night

The CW didn’t tinker much for the fall, adding just three new series (“The Beautiful Life,” “The Vampire Diaries” and the new “Melrose Place”). For its final season, the Superman story “Smallville” moves to Fridays, presumably because its audience will tune in no matter the night. Oh, and don’t look for original programming on weekends; The CW got out of that game.

Dawn Ostroff says ‘Gossip Girl’ spin off could still get a spot on The CW schedule

Source: Zap2It’s Korbi TV

Brittanysnow The “Gossip Girl” spin off is still breathing? CW president Dawn Ostroff informed reporters at Upfronts this morning that the pilot revolving around Serena’s mom circa 1980s is still in contention for midseason: “In all honesty the “Gossip Girl” spin off [is something] we’d like to find a place for as the season goes on. But we have to wait a minute and see where we are.”  Ostroff said the network was in a very fortunate position, having produced just six pilots, all of which were strong candidates for pick up. “It was the toughest deal we’ve ever had, figuring out what to cut, because they all were really, really good,” she shared.  Ostroff went on to explain that The CW will reevaluate later in the year, but will likely pick up a reality series for January launch, as well as another scripted show. The possibilities of course include, among others, the “Gossip Girl” spin off and “The Body Politic,” a D.C. based drama starring Brian Austin Green, Jason Dohring and Minka Kelly. “Parental Discretion Advised” — formerly titled “Light Years,” about a foster kid that finds her biological parents who haven’t spoken since the one-night-stand which produced her — has already made the midseason schedule. So what are the chances the “Gossip Girl” spin off is a go? Word is, “The Body Politic” pilot turned out really well, but I don’t know that it fits with The CW’s vision of itself as well as the “GG” brand does. Plus, Ostroff seems pretty happy with the “GG” spin off, saying producers Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage did an incredible job with it and that it doesn’t need a lot of development, it’s absence from the fall schedule was really just a matter of not yet having enough room for it.

Fall TV: Smallville Leaps to Fridays in a Single Bound

Source: TV Guide Online

The CW isn’t officially showing its hand for the 2009-10 until its Thursday morning upfronts event — and I’ll be there on the red carpet chatting up the young ‘n’ fab talent! — but one piece of not-entirely-super news looks for certain: Smallville is being shuttled to Fridays at 8, for its ninth (and perhaps final) season, sources tell TVGuide.com.   The Smallville move serves two purposes. For one, it clears the way for the new Vampire Diaries blood-sudser to lead into Supernatural on Thursdays.   Also, it gives the CW a Friday show with an audience of 3 million-plus, where in seasons past it was lucky to drum up 2 mil (with Everybody Hates Chris or The Game, neither of which is likely to make the cut for the fall).  Airing after Smallville on Fridays will be an encore showing of that week’s America’s Next Top Model.

CW picks up ‘Beautiful Life,’ ‘Melrose Place,’ ‘Vampire Diaries’ …dumps ‘Privileged’

Source: Zap2It’s Korbi TV

Well, it’s a sad day for “Privileged” fans. Sources say the network surprised many by making the last-second decision to let the Rina Mimoun drama go quietly into the night earlier this week. So I guess we’ll never know what happened with Will and Megan after she woke up in bed post-“we were on a break” sex… Feel free to express your condolences/catty complaints in the comments section. And if you have questions for Ms. Mimoun, please let me know. On a brighter note, I’m hearing really good things about the Ashton Kutcher-produced “Beautiful Life,” which insiders say is a sure thing for fall. Word is, the drama about young models in the city will film in New York, instead of Canada where the pilot was shot, because the network has high hopes for it. And, no surprise, “Melrose” and “Vampire Diaries” will get an official pick up on Thursday too, as has long been rumored.

The CW will not be renewing Privileged for a second season. There was talk of a possible midseason berth for the much-loved dramedy, but, ultimately, the show was a casualty of the network’s strong development. “It’s truly heartbreaking,” series creator Rina Mimoun said via e-mail. “I’m so grateful to everyone out there who supported our little show and fell in love with Megan Smith. She was the most delightful character I’ve ever had the pleasure to write and watching JoAnna Garcia bring her to life every day was a gift I will never forget. I’m incredibly proud of the work we did and forever indebted to all the fans, critics and to Warner Bros. for being so wonderful and supportive. I will miss this more than you know.” Class act, that one.

CBS has canceled Without A Trace and renewed Numb3rs. I’m told Eye execs had one slot left, and they went with Numb3rs because it’s less expensive to produce. CBS has also dropped Eleventh Hour and renewed How I Met Your Mother, Gary Unmarried, Rules of Engagement, and Old Christine.

After its initial announcement last month about the shows it would pick up, today NBC revealed its official 2009-2010 schedule and also made several official cancellations. My Name is Earl and Medium are both gone, though there are possibilities that both shows could be picked up by rival networks.  For My Name is Earl, it’s especially difficult since the season ended with a cliffhanger.The schedule is clearly divided into Fall and Spring schedules, or pre and post Winter Olympics.  Chuck, which recently was renewed for 13 episodes, won’t show up until the Spring.  And as promised Jay Leno’s primetime talk show will fill the 10pm timeslot every night of the week. Friday Night Lights, which was renewed for two more seasons on DirecTV, will air sometime in Summer 2010 on NBC.

Fall TV: ABC’s Official Schedule Revisits V, Moves Betty and Says Adieu to Who?

Source: TV Guide Online

ABC’s plan for the 2009-10 TV includes alien invasions, a new night for Betty and a bevy of sitcoms — though at least one laffer was ironically “forgotten” along the way. Looking to build a comedy bloc, ABC’s Wednesday lineup will feature four new sitcoms: Hank (starring Kelsey Grammer), The Middle (fronted by Patricia Heaton), Modern Family and Cougar Town (starring Courteney Cox Arquette). Notably missing from ABC’s schedule is Samantha Who?, which has officially been canceled. The Christina Applegate-starrer, however, still has a handful of unaired episodes in its arsenal.

The Alphabet’s Sunday and Monday lineups will remain intact, as will the Thursday night combo of Grey’s Anatomy and Private Practice. Now leading into Shonda Rhimes’ one-two punch will be Flash Forward, starring Joseph Fiennes, Sonya Walger and John Cho. The high-concept action-drama — which ran teaser promos during Lost‘s last two episodes —bumps Ugly Betty to Fridays at 9 pm, where America Ferrera & Co. will be sandwiched between Supernanny and 20/20.

ABC will test two new hour-longs on back-to-back nights at 10 pm. Jerry Bruckheimer’s The Forgotten, about a group of amateur detectives and starring Reiko Aylesworth, will lead out of Dancing with the Stars‘ results shows on Tuesday, while Eastwick (inspired by the ’80s flick The Witches of Eastwick) will anchor Wednesday. Rebecca Romijn, Lindsay Price and Jaime Ray Newman star as sorceresses.

On the reality front, Mark Burnett’s Shark Tank, which is aimed at aspiring entrepreneurs, will lead into the Dancing results shows Tuesdays at 8. Once Dancing with the Stars bows out, Scrubs and Better Off Ted will occupy Tuesday’s 9 o’clock hour. Regarding Scrubs, at this time only Zach Braff is locked to return — for at least six episodes — and the setting might possibly change from Sacred Heart Hospital.

Premiering midseason are the dramas V (a reimagining of the cult alien miniseries, and now starring Elizabeth Mitchell), Deep End (a legal series), Happy Town (a murder mystery featuring Amy Acker and Geoff Stults) and, of course, Lost‘s final season. Also on deck for ABC are True Beauty and Wife Swap.

Like Samantha Who?, Cupid and The Unusuals are both canceled, but Surviving Suburbia could return, depending on the ratings its final freshman-season episodes get.

FOX Fall Schedule: ‘Dollhouse’ Renewed, ‘So You Think You Can Dance’ Season 6

Today FOX officially announced its schedule for the 2009-2010 TV season, and some of the changes are huge.  Aside from the great news that Dollhouse will be coming back for a second season, the other big story is that So You Think You Can Dance, which premieres its fifth season this Thursday, will air in the Fall as well for an immediate sixth season. The So You Think You Can Dance move is unusual, but helps to balance out the schedule since FOX has American Idol in the Spring.  It also gives FOX the chance to do direct competition with Dancing with the Stars, a show that in recent seasons has taken several professional from former SYTYCD contestants. With three hours of So You Think You Can Dance on the schedule each week, there isn’t much room in the Fall schedule for new shows.  House, Lie to Me, Bones, Fringe and Til Death all return in the Fall as do the Sunday animated comedies The Simpsons, Family Guy and American Dad.

New entries for the Fall include Glee, a new hour-long comedy that has a special premiere presentation tomorrow after the American Idol final performance show.  The other new shows are half-hour comedies: The Cleveland Show, an animated spin-off of Family Guy, and Brothers, a Friday night sitcom starring Michael Strahan (yes, former NFL star Michael Strahan). FOX will also try a new Saturday night talk show by giving recent White House Correspondents Dinner host Wanda Sykes her own show.

Here is the Fall schedule for FOX:

MONDAY:
8pm – House
9pm – Lie to Me

FOX also revealed its plans for the Spring season which brings more new shows.  Two new dramas, Human Target and Past Life, will premiere in the Winter.  Human Target is an action series based on a popular graphic novel about a man who protects his clients at all costs while Past Life is about a psychologist who treats her patients by exploring their past lives.

The current Spring schedule keeps Thursday and Friday nights the same while adding 24, preempting Glee until the Spring, and introducing a new comedy on Sundays, Sons of Tucson, a live action comedy starring Reaper‘s Tyler Labine.

They’ll also boost two returning freshman series: Tim Roth’s Lie to Me has scored the plum afterHouse berth on Monday, while Fringe will lead out of Bones on Thursday. Dollhouse will remain in the Fridays-at-9 pm slot, where its new lead-in will be a pair of live-action comedies — Brothers, starring former NFL star Michael Strahan, and [groan‘Til Death.

Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles has officially been powered down. Fox entertainment president Kevin Reilly tells TVGuide.com that no matter how well Christian Bale’s Terminator Salvation theatrical release does, the TV series will not be baaaack.

On the reality front, So You Think You Can Dance enthusiasts can do a little jig to celebrate the fact that not long after the show’s about-to-launch summer season ends, a fall edition will kick up its heels, airing on Tuesday (with a two-hour performance show) and Wednesday. Kevin Reilly says that the intent is to mirror the network’s midseason lineup, when American Idol enters the mix. Wanda Sykes will host a late-night roundtable talk show airing Saturdays at 11 pm.

Among Fox’s new offerings, Glee — which gets sneak-peeked this Tuesday, following American Idol‘s Adam-Kris sing-off — will air on Wednesday, leading out of Dance‘s results show. The Family Guy spinoff The Cleveland Show will call Sunday-at-8:30 pm home.

Premiering midseason will be Past Life (a reincarnation-tinged thriller series airing Tuesdays at 9 pm), Human Target (with Mark Valley as an elite bodyguard, replacing Glee on Wednesdays) and the comedy Sons of Tucson (starring Tyler Labine and targeted for Sundays).

90210 Season Finale Episode Recap: ‘One Party Can Ruin Your Whole Summer’

Source: TV Guide Online

In 90210‘s first season finale, Naomi defies her sister’s wishes by throwing a post-prom party at her house, but she ends up pushing Annie to her breaking point after accusing her of something she didn’t do. Meanwhile, Brenda visits Adrianna in the hospital after she gives birth, and Ethan confesses a secret.

Naomi, Jen & Liam
This week’s finale episode starts right where we left off last week. The kids are leaving the prom and heading to an after-party. Naomi is trying to tell her sister about the amazing convo she and Liam had about his mom and stepdad, but all she cares about is how her makeup looks. Phoebe, the girl who was initially throwing the post-prom party before Principal Harry put the kibosh on it, told Naomi she couldn’t find a parent-free house in which to par-tay. Naomi says they can use her place, but Jen chimes in that she doesn’t want a bunch of teens vomiting up their wine coolers on the carpet. Naomi tells Jen she’s the one footing the living expenses and thus is having the party. Uh-oh, the last thing you want to do is cross your pathological, manipulative big sis.

Naomi gets a text that Ade is in labor and puts Annie in charge of holding down the party fort while she’s gone. She apologizes to Liam for having to leave him high and dry, but now that they’re in lurve, he tells her he’ll meet her at her party. Liam also tells Naomi that everything he told her about her family is private. Sure, that shouldn’t be a problem. After all, she only told her sister Jen who would never, wait, yeah, this can’t good.

At the party, Jen is bitterly stomping around about not getting her way until she bumps into Liam. She introduces herself as Zelda the neighbor and pretends she overheard Liam’s story about his mom and stepdad from some gossipy girls Naomi told. And if laying false blame on her sister wasn’t bad enough, she offers to make the night “a lot more fun.” OMG, has she no shame to be sleeping with children?!

Naomi is by Ade’s side until the baby is born and quickly returns home to find Liam. She heads upstairs and walks into her bedroom to find Liam buttoning up his pants next to an unmade bed. He won’t tell her who the lucky lady is, but she finds a black wrap on the floor. Naomi tells him she never wants to see him again, and storms out. In comes a half-naked Jen prancing about trash-talking her sister. Liam is shocked to hear her say Naomi is her sister. Jen tells Liam that Naomi will never find out she was the girl because that would leave Naomi devastated, which he’d never do. Liam point-blank calls her a bitch and, well, she agrees.

Naomi & Annie
Storming out of her bedroom, Naomi goes straight to confront Annie because she is convinced that she’s the girl Liam bonked. Annie is clueless (as usual), but Naomi holds up Annie’s black wrap that she found in her room. Annie tells her she had to take Phoebe home after finding her head-first in the toilet. Naomi, not believing her, makes a scene. With everyone looking at them, various students start ganging up on Annie, since they think she’s the one who narced to her father about the original party venue.

Naomi, who thinks Annie has now stolen both Ethan and Liam from her, says, “Get out, Kansas skank.” Someone tosses a drink in her face and everyone starts laughing at her. Annie is stunned, shocked and, oh no, she’s gonna blow — the volcano’s going to erupt! In a scene reminiscent of Carrie, Annie screams at the top of her lungs and storms out of the house. But rather than igniting the house with her telekinetic powers, Annie does something worse: She calls the cops and reports the party. She also snags a to-go bottle of vodka for the road. Inside, a hysterical Naomi is comforted by her two-faced sister — until we hear police sirens outside.

Later that night, Liam leaves Naomi a voicemail; he needs to talk to her. But next thing you know, two very large men storm in his room and physically rip him out of his bed. His stepfather hired them to take him to a “wilderness therapy program.” Perhaps he won’t being telling Naomi the truth anytime soon.

The next morning, a disheveled, possibly drunk Annie tears down a mountain road and accidentally hits something. For a second, she appears to be in shock, but just as quickly, she spies a car in her rear-view mirror and drives away. What is that dark, lifeless lump she leaves in her wake? A deer? A large dog? A person?!

As she drives away, we see a Mercedes (West Bev bumper sticker, California license plate 2WAQ233, which Google tells me was also the tag on the car that Shannen Doherty’s character drove in Charmed) pull up beside the dark, lifeless lump. Uh-oh, busted!

Ethan, Dixon & Silver
Dixon is still moping about that fact that Silver called him a “prom-loving loser.” At the after-party, he opens up to his bud Ethan. Dixon tells him that sometimes he wants a regular girlfriend who like things like prom, but Ethan tries to tell him being different is what makes Silver so great. (Because he totally wants to have 10,000 of her babies.) Lo and behold, my hunch proves true, as moments later we see Ethan stare lovingly at a picture of Silver he pulled from his jacket pocket.

Later in the evening, and because this is television, Silver also seeks relationship advice from Ethan. He tells her they’re a great couple and not to worry about things. She thanks him with a hug and tells him he’s wearing Dixon’s suit jacket by accident. So, the two swap their jackets back.

Silver and a bunch of girls jump in the pool (must be nice to be able drop a small fortune on a dress without worrying about what diving into a chlorinated pool will do to it) and Ethan admires her from afar. Dixon notices and confronts Ethan about his feelings. Ethan tries to play dumb, but Dixon tells Ethan he found the picture he had of Silver in the jacket after they swapped back. Dixon just wants him to admit it, but Ethan wants him to drop it. Dixon keeps pushing him to come clean and eventually he does — to Silver! “I like you,” he says, which is the high school equivalent of a Shakespearean sonnet.

Embarrassed, Ethan turns and leaves, but shortly after, Silver chases after him. She gets him to stop and she says she doesn’t know how to handle this news since they’re just friends. Without a word, Ethan grabs her and the two share a steamy kiss (a solid 10 seconds long, most likely with tongue). “I don’t think we’re just friends,” says Ethan. He wants something other than friendship or else he won’t be able to have anything with her at all. It’s Silver’s choice. He does pose an interesting question though. “Why are you out here talking to me instead of inside talking to your boyfriend?”

IT’S A BABY GIRL!

Navid and Ade arrive at the hospital where Navid steps up to the plate and makes sure that Ade is taken care of. Meanwhile, at Harry’s alcohol-free “Post-Prom-a-Palooza,” the non-drinking portion of the sophomore class are having sundaes and listening to a little a cappella rap. Harry, Debbie and Kelly head out to the hospital as soon as they find out Ade’s in labor — but not before Harry steals some delicious brownies that he and his wife share. (Oldest trick in the TV book, by the way. Who didn’t see this one coming down Broadway?)

Adrianna, who’s three weeks early, is stressing about giving birth too soon, especially when she finds out she has to have an emergency C-section. Luckily, her daughter is born at a healthy 6 pounds, 2 ounces, and Navid brings her into Ade’s room. Sadly, she doesn’t want to see the baby, which will just make giving her up for adoption even more difficult.

In a completely random storyline, Harry and Debbie are in the waiting room when they suddenly start cracking each other up. Um, could there have been a little somethin’-somethin’ in those brownies? (Yes, duh. We knew way up there, two paragraphs ago!) “The nerds had pot brownies,” Harry proclaims. They try to figure out what to do next since they can’t drive stoned, but Kelly offers to get them snacks from the vending machines until their high passes. For some reason, Debbie thinks Kelly has a crush on Harry — a plot diversion that pretty much goes nowhere for now.

As Ade is in her bed, she’s surprised to get a visit from Brenda (who’s supposed to be in China) in a Cleopatra costume. She tells Ade her show has been extended and that she leaves for Beijing in the morning. When Ade tells her that she just played the same part, Brenda tells her they’re “two of a kind”: They both love drama and both live pretty dramatic lives. Brenda takes Ade on a dreamy, woozy walk to the cafeteria — and she’s acting mighty odd. They come across a patient room with “Walsh, Jim” written outside the door. Ade asks if he’s related to Brenda. “Yeah that’s my father. He’s dying, actually,” she says, nonchalantly. Say whaaa?! Brenda then shares her love for Jell-O with the little marshmallows. Ade, dumbfounded by Brenda’s bizarre behavior and detachment from the situation, tells her she should be with her dad if he’s dying. Brenda says she’s not ready to say goodbye because it’s too painful. Ade tells her she’ll regret it her whole life, and suddenly Brenda introduces Ade to her Chinese dragon. Cut to Ade waking from a dream. And what’s the first thing she does? She goes straight to see her baby, even if it is painful to say goodbye.

Navid sees Ty in the waiting room and both are a bit battered and bruised from their fight earlier in the night. Ty hands over his parental waiver and, believe it or not, a cigar as peace offering. He thanks Navid for being there for Ade and tells him he respects him.

Ade is holding her baby in her room and Brenda arrives again — in reality this time. Navid enters and says the adoptive parents have arrived. Ade starts to get upset about saying goodbye. Brenda tells her adoption is a “wonderful gift,” and reveals that she knows this firsthand because she was in China adopting a little girl who is now with her mom and dad. (That means Jim Walsh is not hospitalized — phew!)

What did you think of the season finale? Did Annie kill someone? Are you glad the pregnancy storyline is over? Do Silver and Ethan make a better couple than Silver and Dixon? And how long before Naomi finds out about Jen and Liam?

Jessica Stroup Dishes on 90210 Season Finale

Source: Kristin on E!Online

Jessica Stroup, 90210

Before you even think about clicking into this item, ask yourself the following question: Do you want to know who kills someone in the season finale of 90210?

For the spoilerphobes, steer clear until you finish the episode tonight. However, if you’re all for knowing what happens and where next season is taking us, Jessica Stroup spills all the juicy details below. Even more importantly, if you’ve seen the episode already, grab your postprom party gear and get on in here!

This season, you go from fun yet cynical blogger to having bipolar disorder. How did it feel playing Silver this year? This year was, for me, a journey. The journey that I took with Silver was one that I got to experience fully as myself as well. I’ve never played a character that I really respected and responded to as much as Silver. I just felt that she was such a smart, witty, strong girl who was turning into a woman. As the story went along and as we chose paths to try with her—to go down the love path, the parent path, the bipolar situation—I really saw her changing into an even stronger person. She started off with so many ideas and opinions, and she expressed them through a blog. People weren’t afraid of her, but they knew that she was an outspoken person and not to piss her off. I think she really came into her own through discovering more of herself through having this disease. It’s nowhere from being done. This season finishes out on so many levels as a cliffhanger, and a lot of her stuff, including the Dixon (Tristan Wilds) relationship, the Ethan (Dustin Milligan) relationship and her relationship with herself, with this disease, has really only just begun. The path that she’s on, she’s just now started to go on. I’m really excited to see where it goes next year, and I hope people can respond to what’s happened with her.

Ethan and Dixon have a serious thrown-down in the finale. Now, especially with Dustin leaving the show, how is that going to affect Dixon and Silver’s relationship next year?
I have talked to [executive producer] Rebecca [Rand Kirshner Sinclair], and I’ve talked to some of the writers. I’m curious to see where they’re really going to go. I know that next year is going to start with a whole fresh start. The whole season is going to be different. Some storylines might just evolve and disappear—or just reappear. Ethan and Dixon, although they only met this past year and this is a brand-new friendship for them, they still became really good friends. It was never Ethan’s intention to ruin that relationship. It just happened. He couldn’t deny what his feelings are for her after letting them flourish while watching her at the prom. I’m curious to see where Ethan goes and what path they choose to take for him.

We’re wondering the same thing because Rebecca said to us before that Dustin is not going to be back next season at all, but she also said his leaving has nothing to do with the death. Do you think that’s who Annie (Shenae Grimes) hits with her car? I know you can’t say, but who do you think it is?
The funny thing is we all have theories. Every single of one of my castmates has a theory, and we have talked about it. We’ve gone through scenarios. I’ve said things like, “It’s Ty! It’s Brandon Walsh’s dad!” We’ve said everything. We have no idea. I’m really curious as well. My pick, if I could pick who I think it could be, I think it would be interesting if it was Dixon, but not dying! I don’t want anyone to die. I don’t want it to be Dixon, but I think it would be a really interesting storyline for Annie to hit her brother and drive off drunkenly.

How do you think the death is going to affect everyone next year?
Of course it’s going to change Annie inevitably. She’s going to be a totally different character. As awful as it is with drunk driving, and playing that character was hard for Shenae, but I think she plays that really well. She has a whole other depth to her, a whole other side. I think next year is going to be amazing for her because she’s going to go through a lot of changes with this character and down some really, really dark roads. I hope, at least, that it affects every one of us. I know that it’s going to affect all the characters, but I hope it brings us back together at some point as a whole group. I really want that whole bonding. Besides Ethan who’s going to be leaving obviously, I love playing that group bond. At some point next season, you’re really going to start to see it all coming together, with us becoming stronger as a whole.

This is a pretty twisted finale for a first season show.
When I read it, I was like, “whoa.” I did not see that coming at all.

For the fans who haven’t seen the finale, what would you like to tell them or tease for them to get as many fans glued to the TV set tonight?
For me, I haven’t seen it, and I am dying to see it. I read the script—I was there working on it—but to see the final product, and I know how amazing and how much work went into the finale. I think it’s going to be amazing, and I hope everybody does watch it. It’s going to be exciting.

Annie goes pretty crazy in the finale. It looks like she took a page from Silver. Did you give her any tips about that?
No, that’s funny though. I’m excited to see what she did with it. She worked really hard and worked with some acting coaches and had fun with it.

By far, the Wilson parents accidentally getting high on pot brownies was probably one of the best parts.
Hilarious, right? That was one of my favorite parts. I thought it was hilarious. I wasn’t there when they were shooting it, but I just desperately wanted to see Rob Estes doing that.

It came off very, very well.
I’m sure it did. I’m like, “What kind of research did you do for this?”

The kiss between you and Ethan is pretty hot. Of course, that comes naturally to you guys.
[Laughs] What do you mean? I don’t know what you’re talking about. He’s a good friend of mine.

I know you might be biased, but who is the better kisser? Tristan or Dustin?
That is never going to be answered. They are both great boys. They’re both just different.

You’ve had so many alums come on the show, between Tori Spelling, Shannen Doherty and, of course, Jennie Garth. Who would you like to see come on the show next season? I really hope my other brother-ish person, David Silver, comes back. I actually met Brian Austin Green before I ever started shooting. I was with one of my best friends at a Coffee Bean, and he was sitting there on the phone. I had just gotten the part, and I was freaking out, thinking I have to go talk to him—I have to tell him I’m playing his baby sister. Of course, he thought, “Who is this crazy chick hovering over me while I’m on the phone.” But he was supernice to me once I explained that I wasn’t a crazy stalker. I think he’s a great actor and is funny and hot, so why not come back?

You just said your show brother is hot.
I know. It could be a very weird situation for us.

When it comes down to it, are you for Silver and Dixon staying together next season? I am for them taking the situation that comes up at prom and actually working through it. I don’t want it to be something where they are just in the relationship, move on and are not friends anymore. I don’t want them to be over it. I want it to be something they talk about—something that they both seriously and maturely think about and whether or not this is detrimental to the foundation they built as a relationship. Do I want them to stay together? I love their coupling as a whole, but I think there are a lot of other places they both can go individually. Whether or not they do that together, I don’t know.

24 Season Finale Recap: Jack’s Day 7 is Over, Will He Live to See Day 8?

“24” wraps with plenty o’ melodrama

Source: Zap2it.com Recaps

Believe it or not, “24” manages to wrap-up Jack Bauer’s seventh day to a most fitting conclusion… the day is saved, yet we’ve only just begun. Also, the character development knob is turned to 11 for the final two hours.

Thanks to the Cisco TelePresence™, Olivia can be interviewed by the Justice department without having to leave the White House. That’s a good thing, because she’s already attracted enough unwanted attention to warrant Aaron calling Ethan. He initially doesn’t believe the Greatest Secret Service Agent EVER, but the power of Aaron’s guilt is too much to deny. Ethan initially succeeds in retrieving the flash drive containing the audio and nearly makes it off White House property, but Olivia puts the kibosh on that. Knowing that card is the only thing keeping her in the position of power, she negotiates with Ethan to give it up. The agent eventually finds the card, which Olivia promptly destroys… except Ethan handed off the real card to Aaron all along! Thanks to automobile technology, he listens to the incriminating evidence in the car while Olivia hyperventilates to Martin. Should have thought about that before you put a bounty on Jonas Hodges head.

Meanwhile, the Tony Almeida convoy is truckin’ down the highway when Cara forces Jack to free the beast. He even shoots the random FBI guy riding along for dramatic effect. Once Tony is free, he and Cara take a very-weakened Jack as hostage, whisking him away to the dreaded undisclosed warehouse. Renee makes an effort to locate Jack, using the combined, yet bitchy forces of Chloe and Janis to locate him. As it turns out, Jack is only being held because once he’s dead, the pathogen can be extracted from his organs to reconstitute more weapons of mass destruction. Who knew Tony could be so resourceful. He recognizes this, which is why he begs Cara to have Alan Wilson formally allow him to join the Coalition Gang.

Back in the Connecticut Avenue tunnel, Renee tries to hail Kim without causing too much of a ruckus. She has Kim paged to the white courtesy phone at the gate, only to keep her long enough to raise Bob and Sarah’s (yes, that’s their names) suspicion levels. Bob takes it upon himself to secure Kim… so he begins shooting up the terminal; particularly the agents headed his way. Sarah takes Kim hostage, yet the spunky blonde Bauer stabs her to not only get away, but to have the bad girl go down in a barrage of bullets. Bob is shot as well, yet he breaks free. Kim gives chase (allowing her to awesomely utter Daddy’s favorite phrase!), but manages to make the smart move by alerting the police. Bob nearly breaks free, but multiple shots through the windshield lead to his car flipping over and catching fire. This gives Kim the chance to put on her common sense hat by reaching into the engulfed car to retrieve the laptop. And that’s just the first hour… the final 60 minutes blow that out of the water.

It took Olivia just over half a day to knock Ethan from his position of power… but he returned the favor in a fraction of that time. When she realizes she didn’t destroy the actual flash drive; well, the look on her face is priceless. All he wants is for her to come clean to Mama President. It’s a touching family gathering when Olivia reveals Jonas is dead (mostly) because of her actions. While she doesn’t directly appeal for Mom to sweep the matter under the rug, she does bring to light that Roger is dead because of Jonas. A weakened Henry takes his daughter’s side by encouraging his wife to cover the whole mess up… for the good of the family. Lucky for us, Allison Taylor comes from the School of David Palmer and does the right thing by having Olivia remanded into federal custody. She may have just lost what family she had left, but she’s earned my respect.

The Jack and Tony chase sequence leads to a taxi garage, which Jack tries to blow up using leaking fuel and a flare. Tony finds a forklift to force open the garage door and take Jack back into custody. Before when I said Jack was a hostage only because of the pathogen inside him? Yeah, no. He’s just using his former friend to gain ultimate access to Alan Wilson, who as it turns out was Tony’s target all along. Alan was the man pulling the Charles Logan strings: the Sentox gas attacks, David Palmer’s assassination, the guy who had Michelle Dessler (and, as it turns out, his unborn son) killed AND colluded with Jonas to help General Juma unleash the terror in DC. The man has been busy, that’s for sure. Tony is ready to end his reign by strapping a bomb to Jack.

Surprisingly, Alan decides to meet Tony in person to determine whether he’s worthy to join the gang. The comprehensive security sweep looks efficient, but when you fail to account for FBI helicopters, you might as well have sat on your hands. Renee and company sweep in to take out most of the redshirt bad guys. Meanwhile, Cara safely moves Alan into the warehouse, only to have Tony kill her in front of her boss. Dude, that’s just harsh. He launches into his monologue against Alan… it appears he’s taking many years of frustration out on Alan’s kidneys. Just before the two reach their most awesome moment, Renee and Jack bust in to wound him. The last we hear of Tony is his telling of the dynamic duo that they’ll be sorry. So much for honoring Michelle.

Since Tony spared his life, Renee won’t be extracting much info from Alan. She even goes as far as to ask Jack (on a gurney) what he would do. Not surprisingly, he can only really suggest “whatever it takes,” so long as it a choice “you can live with.” You can almost see Renee transform into Jack before your very eyes.

What is somewhat surprising is that Chloe and Janis make up in a way you’d expect those two characters to do so. After that, Janis takes a series of forms for Renee to sign, who has just arrived with Alan to the interrogation room. When Janis refuses Renee’s order to leave, Agent Walker goes ballistic; she busts the door keypad and has Janis handcuff herself at gunpoint. Alan is calm and cool in the room… that is, until he catches a glance at Renee’s crazy eyes!

By this point, Jack is clinging to life by the thinnest of threads. He calls for Muthadi, the imam of Jibraan’s mosque, to sit and pray with him. Behind all the tangled webs that is Jack Bauer, he is simply a man. Dr. Sunny confirms nothing more can be done for Jack, aside from morphine that will put him in a coma. It’s at this point Kim arrives, desperately begging the good doctor to go ahead with the radical stem cell treatment. We end with Kim sitting on her father’s hospital bed… taking his hand, not ready to let him go.

07:59:57… 07:59:58… 07:59:59… 08:00:00

So what are your thoughts on Day Seven? Is “24” back and better than ever? Are you pumped and ready for next season?

How I Met Your Mother Season Finale Recap: The Goat, Linda Knievel and the Leap

‘How I Met Your Mother’ Finale: The goat, Linda Knievel and the leap

Source: Zap2it.com Recaps

I don’t know how else to say this, so I’ll just come right out with it – we got the goat tonight! “How I Met Your Mother” finally gave us the goat! Were you nearly as excited by that I as I was? I hope so, because if you weren’t nothing that follows will seem magical.

What? You don’t want to talk about the goat? You want to talk about Lily announcing to Marshall that she was pregnant? Yeah, that was a lie she told to stop him from plunging to certain doom. That wasn’t as good as the goat.

I guess, perhaps, we could talk about the Barney-Robin thing, after all, I’ve been a ‘shipper for much of the season. It does hurt me a little to talk about it though because Marshall decided that Robin wasn’t all that attractive, and I like Marshall so I don’t want to have to get into a disagreement with him.

Marshall also came up with the terrible idea (if you’re a ‘shipper) of Robin “Mosbying” Barney by declaring her love for Barney so that he would back off. That all may have worked if Lily hadn’t opened her non-pregnant (and yet pregnant in that Alyson is pregnant) mouth.

I did love the back and forth between Robin and Barney in the hospital though – that has to be one of the funniest scenes in a long time. It was kind of like the end of “Chinatown,” but played for laughs, of course. Clearly there’s a lot more to be explored in that possible relationship, but I hope the show doesn’t keep the will they/won’t they thing going on too long, and “too long” may not be that far off.

Enough of that however, on to Ted and the goat!

How is it that Ted couldn’t come up with a design for the Ribtown cowboy hat-shaped restaurant? I have to assume that indicated that Ted was never a terribly great architect, some Imagineer over at Disney probably has 12 different versions hidden away in his desk right now.

Maybe Ted did come up with an idea by his deadline, but if you ask me the restaurant looked more like a 15-gallon hat, not the more traditional 10-gallon one (perhaps due to the size of the patrons?). However, that wasn’t why he didn’t get the job. Let’s face it, Sven’s dino-with-a-cowboy-hat restaurant was truly awesome. At least Ted didn’t take the loss that badly, you know, except for the whole new career thing.

Ted as a professor works, the man loves speechifying. Do you think that just because the mother is in Ted’s first class we’ll get to see her soon? Does this make Ted the horny old teacher sleeping with a comely young student? I can see him in that role, too.

And then there actually was the goat. The show has been building the goat story since the first season, and I think they did a really good job capping it (probably) tonight. It was both funny and a moment which clearly marked Ted for the rest of his life (even if the hoof-print fades). I’d like more from the next slap and Robin Sparkles video, but for the goat story the semi-understated thing worked, after all, it’s not like Ted was going to have sex with the goat, so what more could they do with it. I do have two questions on the goat though: how did the goat keep getting the washcloth and once the goat had it, why did Ted keep trying to take it back (it wasn’t like the washcloth would ever be usable again)?

Odds and ends:

  • Our final quote of the night for this season – Marshall on how to design the restaurant, “it’s a rib joint for fat tourists, just make sure the doors are wide and the chairs are reinforced.”
  • Lily is not Linda Knievel. Yeah, I’m pretty happy with that fact, I like her as Lily, and it was really nice to have her back for a full episode tonight. I actually didn’t realize how much I had missed her presence these past few weeks.
  • What do you think we can look forward to next season? What do you want to see?

One Tree Hill Season Finale Recap 6.24 ‘Remember Me As A Time Of Day’

‘One Tree Hill’ Finale: Blasts from the past

Source: Zap2it.com Recaps

One Tree Hill” wrapped up its sixth season tonight with an episode full of heartache, triumph, attempted redemption and a slew of very welcome old faces.

The show starts out with a montage of doom that picks up the events of the end of the last episode. It is perfectly set to a tune I do not know the title or artist of, but is quite awesome and perfectly sets the tone of the proceedings. I have to say, this show excels at the montage of doom, probably because no dialogue is involved. Pretty soon, though, dialogue must ensue, this time in the form of Lucas talking to Peyton’s post-surgery, unconscious body. Thankfully, the drama doesn’t last long because Peyton wakes up just in time to name their baby Sawyer. Sawyer Scott. That sort of sounds like an SEC quarterback, but they live in North Carolina. I’ll go with it. I am making fun, but it’s all quite happy and cute, especially when the whole gang (including KAREN!) greets Peyton in her hospital room. It’s good to see Karen again.

Julian stays in Tree Hill to take care of Brooke while Peyton is in the hospital and ends up “taking care of Brooke” if you know what I mean, and I think you do. Strangely, however, although Julian talks about wanting to be with Brooke so bad he leaves the next morning without saying anything. Victoria sees how much Brooke and Julian love each other and finally gives Brooke some sound advice to go after Julian if he is what she wants. Then she gives Brooke back her company and admits to being a horrible parent, and even apologizes and says she loves her! It’s like Bizarro World! Brooke tells Victoria she would like her to stay on and run the company from New York. Brooke ends up taking her mother’s advice and goes to Julian, tells him she loves him, and kisses him. Aw.

Peyton and Lucas aren’t the only ones getting great news this week, as Nathan learns he has just been called up to the NBA to play point guard for the Charlotte Bobcats. Good on ya, Nathan. And so conveniently close to Tree Hill!

After going AWOL for weeks, Dan shows up this week…to visit WHITEY! Man, I thought I was excited to see Karen until I saw Whitey. Whitey rocks, especially when his hospitality to Dan includes sandwich cookies and a revolver on the table to murder Dan with “in self defense.” Hee. Dan’s visit is apparently to clear his conscience, as he apologizes to Whitey for that day many years ago when he refused to play in the state championship, which is the day he figures everything in his life went wrong. He also actually apologizes to Whitey for killing Keith, although that apology would probably be better suited for Karen. Or Lucas. Or Nathan. Hell, or Lily. But whatever. Dan then begs Whitey to kill him, but instead Whitey hugs him and tells him Dan is still alive to gain redemption. Boo. I wanted bloodshed! Instead Dan goes to meet little Sawyer and Peyton lets him hold her.

Also in this episode: Millie decides to stay in Tree Hill to be with Mouth and Mia’s album is being released.

Random thoughts:

  • I still love Dan’s giant headstone. I especially love when Dan visits and stares at it longingly, like he did tonight.
  • Does anyone think it’s strange that Karen couldn’t show up for the wedding (which was yesterday) but has no problem getting to Tree Hill to be in the hospital? It’s like “I will only show up for an emergency, and Lucas’ second wedding totally doesn’t count.”
  • The moment when Jamie found out about Nathan’s promotion via Mouth’s news story was really, really cute.
  • Have Karen and Dan met face-to-face like that since Dan killed Keith? I know she went to see him in jail (and awesomely spit on the window), but I don’t remember if they’ve met in a casual setting until tonight.
  • They played a Kate York song! Kate’s a fellow Nashvillian and very, very talented. Check out her stuff, you won’t be disappointed.
  • Nathan’s Bobcats intro was awesome. Jumbotron!
  • The show ends with Lucas, Peyton and Sawyer driving off in the restored Comet. Seeing as Chad Michael Murray and Hilarie Burton aren’t returning next year, this seems like kind of a lame goodbye.

Gossip Girl Season Finale Recap: Chuck Finally Tells Blair ‘I Love You’

‘Gossip Girl’ Finale: Graduation Day. And Chuck loves…

Cast_gossipgirl_240 Tonight on “Gossip Girl,” Rufus and Lily bond over a little Mary J (not Blige), Serena wages war on Gossip Girl, and a mysterious stranger who may or may not be the long-lost offspring of reunited Rufus and Lily transfers to NYU.

Graduation

Gossip Girl texts everyone during the graduation ceremony as follows: Nate Archibald: class whore, Dan Humphrey: the ultimate insider, Chuck Bass: coward, Blair Waldorf: weakling and as for Serena Van Der Woodsen, after today you are officially irrelevant. Congratulations everyone, you deserve it. Serena vows to take Gossip Girl right the eff out.

The Scooby Gang works out that it’s someone in their class. It took them until graduation to suss that out? Serena texts a fake tip to GG… and little twinky Jonathan’s phone rings. But it turns out Jonathan hacked into GG’s server over spring break, that’s how he gets her text messages. (Why is it always little twinky guys who are named “Jonathan.” Will he get his own alternate-reality episode of GG where he’s a spy and a trumpet player and total pimp?)

At Nate’s party, Dan and Vanessa are all Preston and Denise from “Can’t Hardly Wait.” Blair takes Chuck into a bedroom and stripteases for him, then asks him how he feels about her. Before he can answer, GG texts: Serena Van Der Woodsen just couldn’t leave well enough alone. Since she had to find out the truth about me, I’m going to tell you the truth about everyone. Every gossip bomb I’ve got is about to drop and if you’ve got a problem with that… take it up with her.”

The Gossip Bombs are as follows:
Ever wonder why Miss Carr left town? Dan Humphrey had sex with her during the school play.
The sparks between Humphrey’s sis and Nate during a hot photo session? Thank God it stopped at PG-13, or someone could’ve ended up in jail. Like her brother.
And as for Blair Waldorf, say uncle. We hear she kept it in the Bass family on New Year’s but rumor has it Chuck spent some time in Brooklyn, metaphorically speaking of course.

So Dan slept with a teacher, Jenny fooled around with Nate, Blair hit Jack Bass and Chuck hooked up with Vanessa. Happy graduation everyone! Blair turns against Serena, blaming her for everything. She goes back to Chuck, though, and tells him she loves him, begging him to tell her back. He won’t and Blair cries.

Nate tries to comfort Serena, who thinks everything is ruined because high school is over and everyone hates her. So she texts GG: meet me at the Oak Room or I tell everyone who you are. Nate sits with her at the Oak Room, then Dan shows up. She confesses that she doesn’t want to be irrelevant and he reassures her that she won’t be. As the entire senior class shows up, GG texts them all that she’s coming with them to college. Blair and Serena make up, as Chuck watches from outside, looking sad.

Queen B Search
Blair’s minions are choosing a new head Mean Girl at midnight, giving it to whomever brings the best piece of gossip to them at Nate’s party. New girl Emma Boardman (who lives on Park Avenue) wants the title. Once Jonathan reveals his access to GG’s server, Jenny and Eric find a piece of gossip that she thinks would crush Emma Boardman for new Queen B but doesn’t think she can use it because it’s about Blair’s New Year’s activities.

When Jenny tries to warn Blair that GG knows, Blair blows her off so Jenny turns right around and tells the Mean Girls what she found out. Unfortunately, GG texts her Gossip Bombs before Jenny can spill the beans. Emma smirks. Is Emma Gossip Girl? Blair tells Jenny the gossip about her and Chuck, but Jenny turns it down. Blair says Jenny is her queen and that she needs to look out for herself.

Rufus and Lily’s Excellent Adventure
Lily doesn’t want to have much to do with Rufus now that he no longer wants to marry her. Women are funny that way. However, Lily gets down-in-the-mouth about her daughter graduating high school and feeling old, so she surprises Rufus with beer and weed. Excellent. They get high and he proposes with a tape measure for a ring.

One Week Later
Rufus and Lily are happy, Eric and Jenny unpack their stuff. Blair gives Serena her mug shot in a frame, snerk, and they hug. Dan, Vanessa and Nate have coffee and Nate says the Deputy Mayor made a pass at him, so he’s going backpacking with Vanessa instead of working for the Mayor.

Blair crashes the coronation of Emma as Queen in order to bestow the crown to Jenny, who told GG all the secrets she was keeping about Nelly.

Dan meets a new NYU transfer named Scott, who is from Oregon and possibly the long-lost child of Lily and Rufus. Georgina calls to tell Dan that his money is back in his bank account, not to worry about Poppy and that she’ll see him at NYU next year. Georgina then requests Blair for a roommate. Exxxxxcellent.

Serena runs into Carter on her way out of town and he tells her that he found her father. In Fiji. She invites him along in the limo.

Chuck then surprises Blair with her favorite macaroons from Paris and favorite stockings from Germany. He says he was a coward and that he had to come back for her. Blair says she can’t believe him because he’s hurt her so much, but he insists that she can believe him this time. He then says, “I love you too” and they smooch. Awwww!

What did you guys think? Excellent finale, I thought. I can’t wait to see all our favorite Upper East Siders in college. Gossip Girl: If you caught tonight’s Gossip Girl, you might be wondering if Georgina (Michelle Trachtenberg) and Carter Baizen (Leighton Meester‘s real-life boyfriend Sebastian Stan) are joining the cast as regulars next season. While it certainly looks that way in the finale, sources tell us they aren’t signed to full-time gigs for next year, and of course, Michelle T’s first obligation is to her new NBC series, Mercy. We caught up with her at the NBC “Infront” luncheon in L.A. and she told us exclusively, “It’s definitely a cliffhanger, and obviously very exciting, and obviously one can assume from that dialogue being spoken that there are many more crazy things to come for Georgina.” Source: Kristin on E!Online

Desperate Housewives Season Finale Recap: Who did Mike Marry? Susan or Katherine?

James Denton, Desperate Housewives ABC/RON TOM

What’s the deal with the season finale of Desperate Housewives? Does Mike marry Susan or Katherine? It’s driving me crazy! Please fill me in on anything you know.
Here’s what we do know, back at the Paley Fest, executive producer Marc Cherry talked about the possibility of Mike (James Denton) and Susan (Teri Hatcher) getting back together, “The idea is, we’ll get back there. I don’t know when. If ABC makes a deal with all of us, it looks like we have a few years to play this out, so I would imagine at some point in time Susan and Mike will find their way back in each other’s universe.” Do you think he’s reunited the original Housewives couple, or is he dragging it another few seasons, giving Mike and Katherine (Dana Delany) marital bliss? We want you to hit the comments with who you think was behind the veil or at least who you hope it was.  Source: Kristin on E!Online

In the last moments of the Desperate Housewives‘ season 5 finale:

Dave tied Susan to a post, and intended to have her watch as Mike and his car would collide with MJ in Dave’s back seat. Dave however, had a change of heart when he looked back at MJ in the back seat and saw his daughter.

Susan freed herself and waved down Mike, who still collided with Dave’s car. However, Dave felt guilty enough to let MJ out. He remembered back to the night his wife and daughter were killed, they were all supposed to go out for ice cream, but Dave had brought home work and told then to go without him. Then Dave imagined he told them to stay home instead and he would make smors. Dave blamed himself ultimately for the accident.

Mike kissed Susan after he saw both Susan and MJ were safe.

Fast foward: Two months later a church wedding, Mike was getting married but, who was his bride, Susan or Katherine? We will have to wait until the Season 6 premiere in the Fall to find out!

‘Desperate Housewives’ Finale: Are Susan and Mike remarried?

Wives_desperatehousewives_290 Tonight on “Desperate Housewives,” we get some excellent stuff from Teri Hatcher and Neal McDonough and some hottie-hotness between Karl and Bree.

Susan’s Suitor(s)
Susan gets Mike alone and asks him if he loves Catherine. He answers affirmatively and she wishes him well. Meanwhile, Jackson gets questioned about the nightclub fire while in immigration detainment and tells them he saw Dave Williams coming out of the storage room.

Before the trip to Vegas to get married, Catherine grabs the Dave videotape (labeled “Band”) and takes it with them to record over. Mike sees the tape while Catherine is getting coffee and runs off.

Deranged Dave
Dave makes a videotape about why he has to kill MJ Delfino (to make Susan suffer). He’s crying and it’s all-around creepsville. Susan agrees to bring MJ on a fishing trip with him and before they leave, Dave gives Mike his creepy psycho killer videotape. We then flash back to the day of Dave’s family’s accident, when he insisted his wife and daughter go for ice cream. They never came home. Ouch. It shows the accident, where a stop sign was knocked down and Susan ran it, albeit unknowingly.

On the fishing trip, Mike (having seen the videotape) calls Susan, tips her off and calls the cops. Susan tries to stall but Dave refuses to pull over, so she hands MJ a juice box. Heh heh. Dave pulls over into a totally creepy wooded area, but the detectives call Dave and ask him to turn himself in. While he’s distracted, Susan clubs him over the head and she and MJ run into the woods. Susan goes all Slasher Movie on us and sprains her ankle, then sends MJ running into the woods to hide, telling him it’s a game and that it’s really important that he wins. It’s just heartbreaking. Dave pulls a gun on her, demanding that she call him and Susan yells, “MJ… DON’T COME OUT!” Dave clubs her with the gun and takes off after MJ. It’s really nice work by Teri Hatcher.

Dave stalks MJ through a conveniently-placed cemetary and finally brings him back to a groggy Susan. Back in the car, Dave holds Susan at gunpoint as MJ listens to music in the backseat. Susan tries to talk Dave down, apologizing for the accident. Mike calls, tells Dave he’s on Rte 12 and Dave tells him to meet them at an abandoned gas station near the site of the accident.

Dave ties Susan to a post and is going to make her watch as Mike plows into Dave and MJ. Dave gets back in the car and unbuckles MJ. It’s one of the creepiest things ever. Suddenly, he hallucinates his daughter in the backseat. Susan wiggles free in time to flag Mike down, but he plows into Dave’s car anyway. Fortunately, Dave had gotten MJ out first. The family hugs, Mike kisses Susan and the waterworks are happening at the Reiher house. Dave awakens in the car and flashes back to the night his family died, only this time he tells them not to go for ice cream and that work can wait, so they stay with him instead of going out to be killed in the accident. Aw man. Sniffle.

Dave is locked away in a mental hospital.

Biddy’s Business
Claire the secretary calls Roberta and Karen about Dr. Heller being dead, so they’re on the case! That’s our girls. They break into Dave’s house while he’s on the fishing trip (using the key Edie gave Karen), but the police arrive while they’re searching the house. They help put it together that Mike and Susan killed Dave’s family.

Lynette’s Litter
Preston wants to go to Europe instead of college, so Lynette makes Tom take Preston on a campus visit. Preston still wants Europe, Tom is ready to sign up. To major in Chinese. Guh! I am SO sick of Tom’s midlife crisis crap. Gabby advises her to go all Lysistrata on his ass, but Bree says she can be more cunning than that.

Lynette overhears a message that Tom’s admissions test has been moved and she conveniently doesn’t tell him, instead taking him out to dinner (and drinking). That’s our Lynette. Tom finally hears the message at 2:00 am when he’s drunk on tequila and he’s half-drunk when he actually takes the test. It then turns out Tom wants to major in Chinese because it would help him in the marketplace and allow him to reinvent himself. Lynette realizes what she’s done, just as Tom apologizes for letting her down. That’s right! Twist that knife a little deeper, Tom.

However, Tom passes with flying colors and everyone is happy… except Porter, who is attending the same school. Snerk. Lynette can’t quite be happy for him, though, because she is feeling rundown and thinks her cancer might be coming back. I bet she’s pregnant!

And I am RIGHT! Lynette tells Tom and they have an “we’re old!” freak out. Especially once Lynette tells him it’s twins. Heh heh.

Gabby’s Gathering
Gabby and Carlos take the girls to a BBQ at Carlos’s Aunt Connie’s house. Aunt Connie hasn’t been doing so well financially, so Gabby wears lots of expensive jewelry just to screw with her. That’s our Gabby. After lunch, Aunt Connie announces that she’s dying and can no longer take care of her granddaughter Anna. Carlos guilts Gabby into it because Aunt Connie took care of him.

It turns out Aunt Connie isn’t dying and that Anna is, well, a hottie and uses her hotness to get guys to do and buy stuff for her (including the Scavo boys). She’s also a bit of a bitch, manipulating Carlos against Gabby.

Bree’s Breaking n Entering
Bree comes home to find all her stuff back in her house. Orson wants to know why and Bree finally tells him she wants a divorce. She says he can have whatever he wants because she’s tired of sneaking around. Orson wants to talk about it, but Bree says all she wants is out. That’s our Bree. Ouch. Also, who is that old man and what has he done with Kyle MacLachlan. Oh, Agent Cooper! You’re so old!

Orson gets his, though, when he blackmails Bree into staying. Either she stays or he turns her into the police for her insurance fraud. Bree turns to Karl for help, who sics a thug on Orson. At home, Bree assures him that she would never do that and Orson goes a little nutty when he apologizes for suspecting her, says he’ll stay and is excited that Bree can mend his shirt.

Bree confronts Karl and it devolves into a big ol’ smooch. I like the chemistry with these two, so I’m okay with that. Also, Karl looks good for a guy who took a head spade to the face last Saturday.

Katherine’s Crazypants
Katherine spends all episode getting nuttier and nuttier regarding Susan and Mike. Before Katherine and Mike leave for Las Vegas, she hears some church bells and fondles her garter. That’s our Katherine?

Two Months Later
Gabby is still keeping tabs on Anna, Lynette is having morning sickness, Bree is still with Orson but is making eyes at Karl and Mike is getting married. But we don’t see the bride!

Best Line
Doctor: You’re pregnant. About six weeks or so.
Lynette: …are you sure it’s not cancer

Oooh, the bride better be Susan. I mean, why would Karl be there if it wasn’t? What did you guys think? Good season finale?

‘Gossip Girl’ Finale: Graduation Day. And Chuck loves…

Cast_gossipgirl_240 Tonight on “Gossip Girl,” Rufus and Lily bond over a little Mary J (not Blige), Serena wages war on Gossip Girl, and a mysterious stranger who may or may not be the long-lost offspring of reunited Rufus and Lily transfers to NYU.

Graduation

Gossip Girl texts everyone during the graduation ceremony as follows: Nate Archibald: class whore, Dan Humphrey: the ultimate insider, Chuck Bass: coward, Blair Waldorf: weakling and as for Serena Van Der Woodsen, after today you are officially irrelevant. Congratulations everyone, you deserve it. Serena vows to take Gossip Girl right the eff out.

The Scooby Gang works out that it’s someone in their class. It took them until graduation to suss that out? Serena texts a fake tip to GG… and little twinky Jonathan’s phone rings. But it turns out Jonathan hacked into GG’s server over spring break, that’s how he gets her text messages. (Why is it always little twinky guys who are named “Jonathan.” Will he get his own alternate-reality episode of GG where he’s a spy and a trumpet player and total pimp?)

At Nate’s party, Dan and Vanessa are all Preston and Denise from “Can’t Hardly Wait.” Blair takes Chuck into a bedroom and stripteases for him, then asks him how he feels about her. Before he can answer, GG texts: Serena Van Der Woodsen just couldn’t leave well enough alone. Since she had to find out the truth about me, I’m going to tell you the truth about everyone.
