'Lost' exec producer Carlton Cuse looks back at plotting the finale -- and picks TV's best goodbye

23 hours ago

The finale of a TV show can provoke all sorts of feelings — from devastation to elation, from closure to closed-fist anger — and Lost’s last episode has drawn the full spectrum from different factions of its deeply passionate fan base. Four years after its airing, the epic and polarizing farewell installment of ABC’s obsessed-over mystery drama about a group of plane-crash survivors on a bizarro island still has people talking/debating/clogging message boards. (Should you need a refresher and/or guidance, may we suggest (re)reading Doc Jensen’s insightful recap.) As this is the time of year »

ABC Family has given a pilot order to the paranormal procedural drama pilot Stitchers. Written by Jeffrey A. Schecter (Overruled!), the drama “follows a young woman recruited into a covert government agency to be “stitched” into the minds of the recently deceased, using their memories to investigate murders and decipher mysteries that otherwise would have gone to the grave.”

'The Office' creator Greg Daniels reflects on finale: How they hid Steve Carell from NBC

18 April 2014 11:33 AM, PDT

NBC’s The Office was at first viewed with so much skepticism — the Yankee version of Ricky Gervais’ beloved UK cult favorite series. Yet by the second season, the Thursday comedy found its own voice and its quirky ensemble of struggling office drones was embraced by fans and critics. Its docu-style helped launch a TV trend away from studio-based sitcoms and gave NBC a much-needed anchor on TV’s most competitive night. Last year, after nine seasons, The Office closed its doors. Below creator Greg Daniels looks back on the final episode.

Entertainment Weekly: So how did the final season come about? »

Scandal crushed Thursday rivals with its highest-rated season finale. The closer was up 15 percent from last year to draw its second-largest audience of all time — 10.5 million viewers and a 3.4 adults 18-49 rating.

'Southland' one year later: Ep and stars weigh in on the odds of a movie

17 April 2014 4:11 PM, PDT

One year ago today, viewers watched their final hour of TNT’s Southland. After five seasons of barely surviving (and once getting canceled by NBC), arguably one of the greatest cop shows of all time went out with a literal bang when fan favorite John Cooper was shot. It was the perfect cliffhanger to end the season, but not one that fans wanted to end the series. And the feeling was mutual among Southland’s cast and crew.

Nearly a month later, when news spread that TNT canceled Southland, rumors began about a Southland movie, or at the very least, »
