Let’s hope TLC brings back the Sister Wives action, because it’s soon going to end on HBO. It was just announced that Big Love's upcoming fifth season will also double as its last.
According to the show’s producers, the decision to end the program was simply storyline-dictated.
“When we created Big Love in 2002, we had a strong conception of the journey the Henrickson family would make over the course of the series, of the story we had to tell,” creators Mark V. Olsen and Will Scheffer said in a statement. “While we were in the writers’ room this year shaping our fifth season, we discovered that we were approaching the culmination of that story.”
Mark and Will did offer fans some good news to help offset the disappoinment. “This coming January, we look forward to presenting our audience with the most vibrant and satisfying final season of a television series that we can produce,” the duo promised.
Big Love will begin its farewell on January 16.

Although we’re still not clear what Julia Stiles will be doing in the upcoming season of Dexter, we understand why the actress is “giddy with excitement” over her new role.
Despite being “horrible with gore,” Stiles signed on to play “Lumen” – a woman that’s being described as “psychologically and physically damaged.” (As if we’d expect anything less from a character on that show.)
So how will Lumen figure into all of Dexter Morgan’s mounting problems? Find out when the program returns to Showtime on September 26.

“It’s how it should be - hunter, prey. Let the game begin.”
At some point during every season of Dexter, we all ask ourselves the same question: “How the hell is he going to get out of this one?”
It’s time to hit replay.
When the Showtime series returns on September 26, Dexter Morgan (Michael C. Hall) will have to add “single father” and “grieving husband who shows know emotions” to his list of responsibilities. How is he going to juggle it all and keep Quinn (Desmond Harrington) off his track? And how the heck does Julia Stiles figure into all of this?? I’m dying to know.

Not yet ready for tonight’s premiere of It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia? Then maybe this video will get you warmed up.
In this exclusive clip from the program’s Season 4 DVD package, Dennis Reynolds (actor Glenn Howerton) does his best Alistar Cooke to present a unique rendition of his steamy memoir. (I’m not entirely sure Masterpiece Theater ever looked like this.) This bonus feature from the three-disc set is a companion piece to last October’s episode: “Dennis Reynolds: An Erotic Life.”
Season 5 of Philadelphia airs Thursdays @ 10:00 on FX. You can also pick up Season 4 which was just released on DVD this week..
Apparently I didn’t need to watch Laguna Beach to know that I’m not a Kristin Cavallari fan. (That said - I’m also not a Lo fan, a Stephanie fan, a Brody fan…)
Based on this preview, I now know everything I need to about the upcoming season of The Hills: Justin Bobby had his cowboy hat stolen by Spencer Pratt, Kristin (Lauren’s replacement) is kinda like herpes and Heidi Montag will not be a mother anytime soon (thank goodness).
If you feel compelled to find out more, tune in to MTV on Tuesday, September 29th.

And I thought last week’s White Stripes number was good.
If this is how So You Think You Can Dance is going to start the Top 10, I can’t imagine what the weeks ahead will have in store for us. While there were several highlights from last night’s performance show, these are the two that stood out most to me.
In the clip above, the final girls combined talents for probably the show’s best group female performance ever. The Bollywood number, choreographed by Nakul Dev Mahajan, was an absolute delight to watch.
TLC might need a bigger couch.
If you noticed the uncomfortable distance between Jon and Kate earlier this week, imagine what that space might look like later. Even though the Gosselins would have been smart to quit while they were ahead, the tabloid subjects committed themselves to a fifth season. And oh what a long one that will be.

Well, the season finale of Lost is finally here and now the wait begins for the final season next year. So what happened? A lot! But before we get to that, I would like to rate this season finale up against previous Lost season finales. I wouldn’t say it was the best out of all the season finales we’ve seen from this show. I think “Through the Looking Glass,” which was the season finale of season three, is hands down the best the show has ever done. Still this episode was very good and gave viewers a major revelation that we’ve been wondering about for some time. By the end of this episode, the question all of us will be asking is where do we go from here? How will the story continue? How much has changed? Let the speculation begin, but first a more detailed review of season five’s two-part finale “The Incident.”
Did American Idol‘s premiere make you yearn for a different talent show? Do you find yourself inspired while watching Superstars of Dance? If so, these audition dates might be for you.

- February 3: Miami, FL

- March 12: Denver, CO

Hopefully you’ve had enough time to digest Lost‘s Season 4 finale, because we now have more info to throw into the mix. According to Entertainment Weekly, two new characters will be introduced next year. And like many of the players we’ve seen over the years, these two won’t be leaving anytime soon. In fact, these recurring actors will be optioned for possible Season 6 appearances.
So what should we know about these two new entries? Well, as expected, both are being described as intelligent and dangerous. The male, Caesar, reportedly has a “dark past” and is “as skillful at charming people as he is at killing them.” Meanwhile, Ilanna is an “alluring” European female who is “used to getting her own way.” Neither role has yet been cast.
Lost - which doesn’t return until sometime after the new year - resumes production later this month.
On a side note: You can see the producers (Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse) addressing the fans of Comic-Con here.
