Getting Lost: “There’s No Place Like Home, Parts 2 & 3” Preview

This is it. The last Lost preview of the season. Thursday night, beginning at 8pm ET/7pm CT, ABC will air an encore of “There’s No Place Like Home, Part 1” with never-before-seen bonus footage followed by the two-hour season finale. It’s been an incredible season so far, and it promises to get even better during the final two hours. Here are the unanswered questions heading into this week’s season finale, “There’s No Place Like Home, Parts 2 & 3”: Why did Ben allow himself to be captured? How does Faraday know about the Orchid station? Other than Sun’s dad, who […]

It’s official: “Scrubs” is moving to ABC

Posted by SH It was just about the worst-kept secret in Hollywood, but ABC made it official today, announcing it will scoop up the Sacred Heart crew for an eighth season, ending the red-headed stepchild treatment the show had gotten for so long at NBC. We gotta give the Peacock credit, though, for sticking with it through season after season of so-so ratings, and not cramming another hour of “Biggest Loser” down our throats. One of the biggest hurdles “Scrubs” has faced has been its carousel of time slots. None other than “The Simpsons” made reference to the problem on […]

Getting Lost: “There’s No Place Like Home, Part 1” Preview

This week’s episode of Lost, “There’s No Place Like Home, Part 1,” is the first installment of the season’s three-part finale, which — in one of the most complicated finale schedules we can remember — airs two weeks before the two-hour presentation of Parts 2 and 3 on May 29. That’s right. Lost is going on yet another mini-hiatus, thanks to a two-hour Grey’s Anatomy season finale on May 22. That aside, we wanted to discuss something from last week’s episode. During “Cabin Fever,” Ben suggested that he wasn’t always the “leader” of the island. So who was? How nice […]

Getting Lost: “Something Nice Back Home” Preview

ABC has been running previews for this week’s episode that contain the line, “The island takes one survivor for its own.” Does that mean that another character will be meeting an untimely end, a week after we said goodbye to Alex (not to mention three random members of Locke’s camp who were too stupid to listen to Sawyer — and the sound of gunfire — and stay inside their house)? Maybe, although it’s a pretty open-ended statement. Still, after watching the previews below, we’d be a little worried if we were Claire, Sawyer or Miles. Here are the unanswered questions […]

Getting Lost: "The Economist" Preview

Posted by Mike and johnnysweeptheleg It’s Valentine’s Day, which means everyone has a certain four-letter “L” word on their mind. That’s right — Lost. During the eight-month wait between Seasons 3 and 4, we had forgotten how much we look forward to each new episode. It’s much like football season, when Monday-Saturday are just days that get in the way of our Sundays (give or take an occasional Monday night game that ends up being interesting.) These days, the days between Thursdays seem to take forever (especially when the previews look this good), but here we are.

The Peebles Choice

Posted By RabbitEars A quick note for you All My Children fans: ABC has announced that Mario Van Peebles (our second favorite Mario, after Lopez) will be joining the daytime drama’s cast starting January 29. The award-winning director, writer and actor brings more talent and credentials than are often seen on a soap, and will play Samuel Woods, a U.S. District Attorney who is running for the Senate. Erica Kane (Susan Lucci) takes special notice of Woods, primarily as a guest on her talk show. But he will soon become a nightmare — albeit one with romantic possibilities. Luckily for […]

Soap Serenade

Anthony Geary makes his recording debut! If you’ve been waiting to hear those words, an ABC announcement this week has just made your dreams come true. Perhaps trying to follow in the fine tradition of Rick Springfield and Jack Wagner, several stars of General Hospital and the other ABC soaps, One Life to Live and All My Children, are part of a CD to be released January 29 called Love Affair. Just in time for Valentine’s Day, it’s a collection of love songs. Will any of these stars be the next Springfield or Wagner? Do we want them to be? […]

Countdown To Extinction Week 6: A “Cavemen” Recap

Like “The Onion” once did with John Leguizamo’s abysmal sketch show “House of Buggin’,” we’re going to provide weekly recaps of “Cavemen” until it gets canceled. Thanks to a malfunctioning TiVo and some trouble with the “Watch Full Episodes” portion of ABC’s website, the recap is a little late this week. (OK, fine — really late.) So let’s not waste another minute in getting to the recap. As “Rock Vote” begins, there is a California state election coming up, and Nick and Joel each have a candidate for whom they believe an undecided — and incredibly uninformed — Andy should […]

Countdown To Extinction Week 5: A “Cavemen” Recap

Like “The Onion” once did with John Leguizamo’s abysmal sketch show “House of Buggin’,” we’re going to provide weekly recaps of “Cavemen” until it gets canceled. Sweet Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson! Cavemen is back (after a one-week layoff so that ABC could air It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown) and so are we. Given the current writers’ strike, I can’t imagine that the show will get canceled any time soon, either, despite the fact that ABC has yet to order more episodes as it has done for Samantha Who?, Private Practice and Pushing Daisies. No matter what anyone (myself included) […]

Warning: Dancing With The Stars May Be Hazardous To Your — And Your Parents’ — Health

Yikes! If you ever a) get famous, b) get slightly less famous and c) are then recruited for Dancing With The Stars, you may want to ask your mom and dad first. Especially if you are several decades past the point of having to ask your mom and dad first. See, first Jane Seymour’s DWTS-loving mom passed away the day after a performance show. Then Jane herself came down with a raging case of food poisoning. Theeeeen Marie Osmond passed out cold during a performance show. (Then Sabrina Bryan got eliminated, which seems to have struck everyone on Earth but […]
