Before we dig into this week’s scoopage (we’ve got Burn Notice, CSI, Gossip Girl, Human Target, Lie to Me, Cougar Town, and more), I want to remind you that holiday craziness is no reason to stop sending spoiler requests. Continue doing so through Twitter replies/direct messages (@EW or @EWSandraG) or email (SpoilerRoom@ew.com). And as we say at my house in these times of celebration, “Buffy bless us, every one!”

‘BURN NOTICE': PREQUEL MOVIE SCOOP!

You’re probably nursing a TV hangover from last night’s two-hour season finale, I know, but I come with the scoop equivalent of a greasy breakfast cure. In our convo with Bruce Campbell, the actor spilled some juicy deets on the upcoming Sam Axe-centered Burn Notice TV movie, which shows us Sam’s last CIA mission in the mountains of Colombia.

'Burn Notice': Bruce Campbell teases tonight's game-changing finale

burn-notice-finaleImage Credit: Glenn Watson/USA Network[SPOILERS AHEAD. Consider this your warning.] Remember last season’s finale of USA’s Burn Notice when the final moments featured a shackled and hooded Michael Westen being walked down a dauntingly dark hall, and at the very end, it was revealed he was in a fancy-looking room — possibly being un-burned? Well, the last shot of tonight’s season finale, which airs tonight at 8 p.m. ET, is likely to leave you with bated breath as well. Possibly more so than last season.

This is where we’d normally tell you more, but Bruce Campbell threatened to kill us. (He was kidding…we hope.) So instead, we’ll let him do the teasing about the episode, which finds the team helping Michael battling his nemesis Brennan.

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: Hi Bruce. How’re you doing?
BRUCE CAMPBELL: I’m doing fine and dandy. What’s goin’ on?

Not much here, but I know you’re pretty busy these days.
Well, we’re getting busy. We’re about to jump into the Sam Axe TV movie. So yeah, things are heating up, as they say.

Where are you calling from? Are you in Colombia?
I’m calling from Oregon. My home state of Oregon.

Oh, home for the holidays.
Yes, as I get ready to go to Bogota, Colombia just after the new year.

I’m surprised you’re not over there already keeping your co-star Jeffery Donovan on task.
It’s okay. His job is to get over there and rough the edges, and I come in and polish the little stone. That’s my analogy. It’s great to have him there and set everything up, but I’ll be over there soon. I love the fact that he’s directing.

Tell me about that. How’d Donovan come to direct the Sam Axe TV movie?
It’s all part of my plan. [Laughs] READ FULL STORY

Ask Ausiello: Spoilers on 'Fringe,' 'Dexter,' 'Private Practice,' 'House,' 'Glee,' and more!

ask-ausielloImage Credit: Michael Lavine/Fox; Adam Taylor/ABC; Cliff Lipson/Showtime; Miranda Penn Turin/FoxGot a scoop request? An anonymous tip you’re dying to share? Just want to say hi? You can send any/all of the above to ausielloscoop@ew.com.

Question: I know you are busy and all with getting your fall season tactics together, but can you please give me some Private Practice scoop? —Vernice
Ausiello:
Fall season tactics? You tickle me, Vernice. Let’s grab a drink sometime. Here’s your Private spoiler: Something tragic will happen to a major character during November sweeps. It’s probably the darkest story PP has ever tackled—and this show has tackled some dark stories. Consider yourself warned.

Question: Seriously, no Fringe scoop last week? Why do I even bother to read this column? —Brett
Ausiello:
That’s between you, your therapist, and the lovely people at CVS. If it’s any consolation, I have Fringe scoop this week. Actually, I’ve got a few Fringe scoops. The first one comes courtesy of John Noble, who reveals exactly how Walternate plans to pull Peter’s strings from the alt-universe. “[Walternate] has to ensure that [Peter] continues to work on our side,” says Noble, “and he’ll do that through alt-Olivia.” Okay, I’ll bite: How exactly will Bolivia manipulate Peter? Noble hesitates before whispering, “She seduces him… Did I just say that? Did I just drop a big teaser?” I believe you did, sir!

Question: Does the fact that Fringe is setting every other episode “over there” mean that we’re going to see more of Charlie this season? —Melissa
Ausiello:
That’s precisely what that means. Charlie remains active in the alt-world’s Fringe division, so look for him to appear in multiple episodes—beginning with next Thursday’s season premiere.

Question: Can I get some good Grey’s Anatomy news regarding Der and Mer? —Betsy
Ausiello:
Among the manifestations of Derek’s post-bloodbath adrenaline junkie phase will be an increased sexual appetite. “[There’s] a lot of sex,” says series creator Shonda Rhimes. “He’s on the high that a person gets when they face death and survive it.” READ FULL STORY

Ask Ausiello: Spoilers on 'House,' 'Glee,' 'Bones,' 'Supernatural,' 'HIMYM,' and more!

Question: Have you seen the House premiere? If so, thoughts? —Robin
Ausiello:
Yes, I’ve seen it—it’s the reason this column arrived a little late. If you’re a Huddy fan, you’re going to swoon yourself silly. The Sept. 20 opener features the star-crossed lovers cuddling, bathing, massaging, champagne-toasting, and—of course—kissing. I think I counted a dozen smooches in the first 15 minutes alone. The episode will also answer the burning question “What does Hugh Laurie look like wearing nothing but a laptop?”

Question: Should we read anything into the fact that Chase is touching Thirteen’s shoulder in House‘s season 7 key art? —Nina
Ausiello:
After watching the premiere, I would have to say HELL YES, YOU SHOULD.

Question: How does House’s team—specifically Chase, Taub, and Foreman—react to House and Cuddy being an item? —Brandon
Ausiello:
To quote Dr. Crankenstein in episode 2, one is “in favor,” another is “indignant,” and a third is “indifferent.” Now head to the comments and match the adjective with the character! But first, repeat after me: “Games are fun.” READ FULL STORY

Ask Ausiello: Spoilers on 'Glee,' 'Gossip Girl,' 'Castle,' 'Burn Notice,' 'HIMYM,' and more!

Question: Any Glee scoop? —Ines
Ausiello:
I’m hearing a major character (a series regular!) will find himself/herself in a literal life-and-death situation in this season’s third episode. In possibly related news (I say possibly because I honest-to-goodness don’t know), Chris Colfer’s Emmy-nominated TV dad Mike O’Malley tells us that episode 3 will be “another emotional, emotional episode” for father and son. The actor goes on to hint that the show will revisit the complicated dynamic between Burt and Kurt’s crush, Finn. “The last time I was on the show, [Burt] threw Finn out of the house. There [may] be some resolution there. One of the things I think is really important in life and for human beings is to forgive and be able to rise up from our mistakes. I’m hoping that Finn and Burt are able to cross that chasm.”

Question: I seem to recall you said that Chord Overstreet (a.k.a. Glee‘s newest stud) wouldn’t turn out to be Kurt’s new boyfriend. Jane Lynch tells it differently. —Ashley
Ausiello:
Actually, Jane Lynch tells it exactly the same way I did. Snap.

Question: Will Glee ever cast Rachel’s “two gay dads”? Nathan Lane and Matthew Broderick are my top picks! —Kim L
Ausiello:
Series creator Ryan Murphy sounds doubtful. Though “people always ask me to do that…I don’t know that we ever will.” Maybe he’ll go with Lea Michele’s idea. Says the boss, she suggested “we see them in season 3, like a shot of Elton John cheering her on in an audience. I haven’t decided how I’m going to do that.” READ FULL STORY

ATV spoiler alert: Scoop on 'Fringe,' 'Burn Notice,' and more!

ask-ausielloImage Credit: Barbara Nitke/Fox; Glenn Watson/USA NetworkFringe fans, the wait is over: Producers have officially settled on the title of the show’s third-season premiere, and the latest episode of Ausiello TV is the only place you’ll find it. (Hint: Said title is very much in keeping with Fringe tradition. And it makes complete sense given the events of the season 2 finale.) Speaking of exclusives, you’ll also be treated to a first look at an explosive (literally!) Michael-Fiona clip from Burn Notice‘s July 15 episode, as well as a never-before-seen “prop” from the set of the upcoming Smurfs feature film. Enjoy! READ FULL STORY

Ask Ausiello: Spoilers on 'Gossip Girl,' 'Chuck,' 'True Blood,' 'Greek,' 'Grey's,' and more!

ask-asuielloImage Credit: Giovanni Rufino/The CW; John P. Johnson/HBO; Paul Drinkwater/NBCGot a scoop request? An anonymous tip you’re dying to share? Just want to say hi? You can send any/all of the above to ausielloscoop@ew.com

Question: I love the idea of Lynda Carter playing Ma Bartowski on Chuck. Do you know if she’s seriously being considered for the role? —Andy
Ausiello:
I asked Josh Schwartz that very question and here’s what the boss man had to say: “I’m a big fan of women with lassos. [Lynda’s] an icon as an actress and is someone who fits the show’s universe…but not necessarily for this role.” Translation: It’s a long shot. So what kind of actress is he looking for to play Chuck’s MIA spy ma? “I don’t want to shed too much light on the character,” he hedges, “but we need someone who can kick ass.” Okay, let’s go with my second choice then: Jamie Lee Curtis. Who’s with me?

Question: I’m looking for a Community bulletin. —Frida
Ausiello:
If by that you mean, will I give you some fall scoop, sure, Frida. Though we now know that Senor Chang isn’t qualified to be a Spanish professor anyplace but Sesame Street, Ken Jeong will be back. Even before his character was exposed as a fraud, “I was worried,” he admits, “because I knew they couldn’t take Spanish forever at community college.” But now the teacher will become a student. And “I think he will definitely try to hang with Winger a lot more,” Jeong suggests. “He’ll relate to him, because [the former lawyer] is also at Greendale because he got caught without the credentials for his job.” READ FULL STORY

Casting Scoops: 'Burn Notice,' 'Parks and Rec,' and more!

Ortega/PR Photos; Jason La Veris/FilmMagic.com* Burn Notice: John Seda (Homicide, The Pacific) will guest star on the USA smash later this season as Cole, a disgruntled ex-Marine who now works as a killer for hire. Elsewhere, Tim Matheson and Garrett Dillahunt have signed on to reprise their respective roles as “Dead” Larry Sizemore and jailbird Simon. READ FULL STORY

Ask Ausiello: Spoilers on 'Lost,' 'Grey's,' 'Dexter,' '24,' 'Good Wife,' and more!

Question: I just watched the first seven minutes of the Grey’s Anatomy finale on Hulu. I hope you alert everyone because, as I’m sure you’ve seen, it is very disturbing/shocking! —Elizabeth
Ausiello:
News flash: If you thought the first seven minutes were disturbing/shocking, I strongly suggest you skip the remaining 78-odd minutes. Some seriously dark and depressing s**t goes down in that hospital, and it’s not for the faint of heart. Fun fact: Something big happens in the second hour that doesn’t fit into any of the categories in my May Sweeps Scorecard.

Question: Is the Grey’s Anatomy finale truly going to be epic, or is the hype a bit exaggerated? —Dana
Ausiello:
Based on what I’ve seen (the first hour) and heard (much of the second), it’s no exaggeration.

Question: Got any Smallville season 10 scoop? —Matt
Ausiello:
Only the biggest one everREAD FULL STORY

Question: I can’t go another week without getting some Dexter season 5 scoopage! —Maria
Ausiello:
Your timing is impeccable, Maria. As luck would have it, I can’t go another week without giving you some Dexter season 5 scoopage. You’re never going to believe who ends up caring for Dexter’s three motherless children. Go ahead, hazard a guess. Dex’s in-laws, you say? Wrong! It’s Deb! New showrunner Chip Johannessen tells me that in the wake of Rita’s brutal slaying, Dex turns to his sister (played by Michael C. Hall’s real-life bride, Jennifer Carpenter) to help care for the kids. And if that’s not problematic enough, all five of them will move into Dex’s old (and rather teensy) apartment! “It’s partially funny and partially not,” says Johannessen. “Deb is not exactly the most maternal person. Nobody quite knows what they’re doing, so there’s a certain kind of struggle to cope.” (For more scoop on Dexter‘s fifth season — bowing in September — pick up the new issue of Entertainment Weekly.)

'Burn Notice' exclusive: 'Supernatural' baddie spies major arc

burn-notice-wisdomImage Credit: Glenn Watson/USA; Inset: Chris Hatcher/PR PhotosEvil will have a new face next season on Burn Notice, and it’ll look a lot like the guy in the inset to the left. His name’s Robert Wisdom, he’s best known from his work on The Wire (as Bunny), Prison Break (as Lechero), and Supernatural (as bad angel Uriel), and sources confirm to me exclusively he’s joining the cast of the USA smash as the latest thorn in Michael’s side.
