We’re not ashamed to admit we’re addicted to this show. We’re certainly not the only ones! Aside from having annoyingly short seasons, (The finale’s tonight? Already?!) Beautiful People offers great storylines and engaging characters. And of course, beautiful people to look at.
Be sure to tune in to the ABC Family Channel at 9pm tonight for the finale. There will also be an airing of last week’s episode at 8pm, in case you missed it. There are so many questions to clear up! Will Lynn make it as a fashion designer? Has her partner been stealing from the business? Will she ever come to terms with dating a younger guy? Will Karen get the modeling job? Will she finally admit her attraction to her curmudgeonly boss? Will Sophie make a connection with Chris? Will Annabelle choose between her love of guys, and her love of girls? And will we ever find out what happened to Paisley?
We’ll be glued to the television at 9pm tonight. Will you?

While it’s a good bet that the popular family drama Gilmore Girls will continue into a seventh season on the new CW network, it’s an absolute certainty it will be doing so without its creators and long-time writers and producers, Daniel Palladino and Amy Sherman-Palladino.
Sources fear that fans will rebel, but perhaps there isn’t as much to worry about as they may think. Fans have not been pleased with the husband/wife creative team for quite a while, when it comes to their favorite blue-eyed mother and daughter. Could this sudden departure explain some things?
Is this why the show has been so…well, lousy as of late? Fans have continually protested the ridiculous storylines and character choices found on the show for the past two seasons, including such eye-rollers as Luke’s ‘long lost daughter’ and the ever-doomed ‘L&L’ love story.
Perhaps the Palladinos lost interest long ago, and have been trying to amuse themselves by manipulating the characters into some sort of grotesque facsimile of the vibrant personalities we used to know and love. Was it boredom that led this show from ‘quirky’ and ‘eccentric’ to ‘outlandish’ and ‘poorly written soap opera’ status? Will bringing in fresh blood give the show back its luster? Will this allow Gilmore Girls to go out with a bang, rather than the whimper it’s been heading for? It may seem like dark days now with this news, but there may be a glimmer of a silver lining there after all.

Is the island getting even roomier? This could be considered spoiler information, so the fully story continues after the jump.
Lifetime, Lifetime, how do I love thee? Let me count the ways. Women in peril, cold-hearted villains, stalkers and hauntings and crime…not to mention addictions, kinky fetishes, and hospital mix-ups resulting in getting the wrong baby. Does television get any better than this?
Lifetime has made my—and many fans’—day with its announcement that the women-targeted channel will air a brand-new movie every day in May.
The line-up boasts popular stars including Grey’s Anatomy’s Ellen Pompeo, the ever popular Jennifer Love Hewitt, and Charmed hottie Rose McGowan. Upcoming titles including such gems as Cradle of Lies and Murder On Pleasant Drive. May can’t get here soon enough!
Scorn the channel all you want, but Lifetime offers many valuable skills, such as: how to fake your own death, the best way to murder a cheating spouse and get away with it, and how to seek revenge on anyone who has ever wronged you. And without Lifetime, how would Tracey Gold and Tori Spelling ever get steady employment? (Because trust us, So NoTORIus is not going to last long.)

Great news for fans of the long-running spy gal show - you can now purchase Alias episodes at the iTunes music store. Each episode (all episodes from seasons 4 and 5 are available) costs $1.99. Producers and the ABC network are hoping this decision will boost awareness—and excitement—regarding the long-awaited return of Alias tonight. This episode is a two-hour special event beginning at 8pm. Alias will then remain in this time slot in its usual hour-long format for the rest of the season.
Though crushed that this is the final season of the series, fans will no doubt rejoice at its return. Perhaps there will even be a spin-off…it is television, after all.

Fans decried the sudden cancellation of the CBS ‘dramedy’ Love Monkey, starring the delightfully talented (and may we say, extremely adorable) Tom Cavanagh. Cavnagh’s character, a record producer in his thirties, faced the perils of the business, life in the city, and the quest for true love, head-on.
With its unique blend of touching emotion and outlandish views of societal quirks, Love Monkey quickly became a favorite of television addicts everywhere. CBS pulled the show after only three episodes. The network claimed they made the decision due to low ratings, but three episodes? The show never even got the chance to succeed!
But take heart: VH1 is picking up the series, and will air the complete first season beginning Tuesday, April 18th.
Whether you already love it or missed it the first time, here’s your chance to enjoy a great show. Let’s just say…you’d have to be bananas to miss out on Love Monkey!

Fans still mourn the loss of the beloved supernatural drama Buffy the Vampire Slayer. With its appealing stars and standout writing, it’s no wonder the show developed such a rabid fan base. Buffy fans can rejoice: one of the show’s primary writers is returning to television.
Writer Marti Noxon has been serving as a producer—most recently as a producer of Prison Break—since she left Buffy and its spin-off, Angel. Now, she’s returning to her roots with the new show Brothers and Sisters. Noxon will be producing the show, as well as pitching in on the scripts. The show will star Calista Flockhart and Rachel Griffiths, and is described as a family soap opera full of drama. If anyone knows how to write and produce good drama, it’s Noxon.
Unfortunately for fans, Noxon has confirmed that her vampire writing days are over. But on the bright side, it will be a treat to see what she cooks up next. Will you be tuning in?

100 episodes into its five-year run, Smallville continues to deliver big numbers for the WB. Above and beyond muscular Nielsens, the series about the super adolescent has been a winner in other arenas, too. Smallville‘s Seasons 1-4 DVDs have grossed in excess of $100 million for Warner Home Video. In 2004, ABC Family picked up the super series for syndication, paying $400,000. per episode for the privilege.
As WB and UPN morph into the CW, Smallville is definitely among the neophyte network’s most valuable assets.

Pop sensation and reality star Jessica Simpson is quickly racking up the movie credits. Although the blond superstar has lamented being viewed as a sex symbol, she doesn’t seem to be in any hurry to dispel that view. Case in point: she has recently been cast in the movie version of Baywatch, playing voluptuous lifeguard C.J. Parker, the character created by vixen Pamela Anderson.
Producers told The Sun, “Jessica has all the assets to make Pam’s part her own.”
Ahem, indeed. What do you think? Will a Baywatch movie, so long after the series was popular, be a success? Will Jessica have any hope of being taken seriously after this role?

It’s the hottest trend in television: blogs produced by the ‘characters’ of shows. These blogs provide supplemental information and insights for the amusement and delight of television viewers.
Whether it’s Medium’s Joe Dubois’s journal detailing his psychic wife’s dreams, case notes from the lawyers of Boston Legal, or delightfully gruesome entries from several forensic dramas, these blogs are guaranteed to at least curb the hunger of salivating fans wanting more details about their favorite shows and characters.
Which blog would we most like to see launch? It’s no contest: the world needs one from the Grey’s Anatomy cast. Oh, the wonder that would be! Perhaps we should lobby for one. Which are your favorite television blogs, and which show would you like to see get one?
