LOST scoop on tonight’s episode ‘What They Died For’

LOST - The Last Supper

Courtesy of EW’s Jeff Jensen:

(…)There’s one more significant event happening this week in advance of the series finale, maybe the most significant event of all: tonight’s penultimate episode of Lost! It’s called “What They Died For.” Let me tell you three things about it (SPOILER ALERT!):

1. It picks up where “The Candidate” left off two weeks ago. 2. The title would seem to suggest that someone will explain why Jin, Sun and Sayid had to die two weeks ago — and someone will do just that. 3. For an episode with such an ominous title, and one that ratchets up the tension and stakes in advance of the finale, “What They Died For” is a surprisingly funny outing. How do I know this?

Because as I explained in last Friday’s Doc Jensen column, I got a chance to see the episode last week. Click over there for a more expansive preview and a few additional teases about the episode….

Medium gets picked up for another season

yay!!! Our previous posts on Medium here. I have been a Patricia Arquette fan since Freddy 3…

HA! Eat THAT NBC you TOOLZ!!!!! Recall the prxck saying it was ‘an aging franchise without a single fan letter’ a year ago. Frakkers.

THR Live Feed has it:

…Veteran procedurals “Cold Case,” “Ghost Whisperer” and “Numbers” will not be renewed. Jerry Bruckheimer’s “Miami Medical” is likewise canceled, as is fello newcomer “Accidentally on Purpose,” which mainly aired in the network’s Monday night comedy block. Veteran Wednesday night comedy “New Adventures of Old Christine” is also cancelled.

Meanwhile the network has just picked up “Medium” and “Rules of Engagement” for next season.

With the CBS’ upfront on Wednesday, the network suddenly has launched into a flurry of bubble show decision making.

The most surprising outcome here is canceling “Ghost Whisperer,” which many insiders expected to return and consistently won its Friday night time period….
