Is it too soon to start talking about next season?
While it's still fresh on all our minds, let's check in on some of my hopes for the fall and beyond:
Gabrielle needs to get a job on "Desperate Housewives": I can't take it any more. It's to the point that it's becoming distracting that she has nothing to do but prance around in fabulous outfits. How much shopping can one woman do? We know Gabby is self-centered and doesn't want to break a nail, but come on. This is ridiculous. She must be bored out of her mind.
Jack didn't kill Christopher Henderson on "24": Thanks to everyone who sent me this fabulous theory. Jack promised Christopher Henderson that he would help him disappear just like Jack had disappeared. And our friend Jack disappeared by faking his own death. Jack did seem to make a point of killing him in front of sweet little Petty Officer Rooney. I love this theory because I would love to see Peter Weller and Jo Beth Williams again.
Sara and Grissom have been having an affair for a long time on "CSI": See, I thought Brass' near death experience was a wake up call to Grissom but many of you think those two star-crossed lovers have been having an affair for awhile. They've just been keeping it from us (kind of like how we didn't know about Sam and Jack on "Without a Trace"). I like this idea. Maybe we can even have a "CSI" wedding. After all, we are in Vegas, baby.
Michael and Walt aren't really rescued on "Lost": I don't know how Michael can live among everyone else again, but I would love to find out.
What are you hopes for next season? Talk about it on the TV Gal message boards.
Where Have I Seen Her Before?
Michelle recognized Paige Turco as the teacher having an affair with Tommy's nephew on "Rescue Me." Turco was Abby on "NYPD Blue," Terri on "The Agency" and Bailey's older girlfriend Annie on "Party of Five."
Season Premiere of "Entourage"
Get ready to hug it out, bitch. The boys of summer return for a third season Sunday at 10 p.m. on HBO. Like "The Office," "Entourage" blossomed in its second season and I'm happy to report the show is better than ever in the first three episodes I've seen.
The genius of the show is its ability to mine drama from things we really shouldn't care about. How can I really get caught up in whether Vince's "Aquaman" movie opens big or if Ari will be successful going out on his own? But I care, I really, really do. The show works because of it has created fabulous characters. And not simply Jeremy Piven's positively hysterical Ari (you'll gasp and crack up at the things that come out of that man's mouth). But Rex Lee is pitch-perfect as Ari's put upon assistant Lloyd. He makes the most out of every moment he has on screen -- the epitome of a scene stealer.
All that plus James Wood pops up to hilariously mock himself. After you watch the premiere, let me know what you think.
Series Finale of "Everwood"
Three times last week I dreamed that The CW picked up "Everwood" for midseason. Of course I also dreamed that I was at a party with Sophia Bush and we were talking about Chad Michael Murray's upcoming marriage (memo to me: Don't read US Weekly right before going to bed).
Rumors still abound that "Everwood" could get a last minute pick up. And certainly the show held its own against the season finale of "24" and the series finale of "Alias." Go to http://www.everwoodonline.com/saveeverwood.php to learn more about how you can get involved in saving the show.
But right now it appears that Monday night at 8 p.m. on The WB will be the series finale of "Everwood." (Of course that's what we all thought about "7th Heaven" so let's keep hope alive people). But if this is the end, "Foreverwood Parts 1 and 2" should bring satisfying conclusions to both the romantic and family entanglements. (This should certainly mean that no matter how cute his dimples are, Nina realizes that Andy not Jake is the man for her).
As with the late, great "Arrested Development," better to have watched and loved "Everwood" than to have never watched at all. A look back at some of my all time favorite "Everwood" moments:
