‘HOUSE’ GOES OFF THE CLOCK – AND IT’S DISGUSTING(LY AWESOME)

Season finale alert! When to expect goodbye episodes from 'Survivor,' 'Chuck,' and 'Saturday Night Live'

Where did the time ago? It seems like just yesterday that we were anxiously awaiting the start of Lone Star; now we can barely remember that two-timing cad. That’s because it’s season finale time – that heartbreaking period when we bid adieu to nine months of scripted heaven to make way for three months of unscripted hell on the broadcast networks. (Don’t worry, Big Brother: We still adore thee).

Fire up your DVR playlists, kids … here are all the broadcast net finales. READ FULL STORY

'Castle' exec producer Andrew Marlowe teases tonight's new episode, jokes about the finale's 'Lost' connection

If you’ve been excited about tonight’s episode of Castle ever since you heard Castle and Beckett were going to be sharing a hotel room, join the club. And while the next two episodes are full of the hilariousness you love about Castle, I warn you: Enjoy it while you can. Because the finale, readers, is everything you hate to love about Castle. It’s dark, twisty, and sure to leave impatiently wanting more for the next four months or so.

I chatted with executive producer Andrew Marlowe last week, who gave me more info on the next few episodes of Castle, including the finale, which, he says, will set them up for a Lost-sized change in season 3. (“We’re starting next season by moving the island.”)  READ FULL STORY

'Criminal Minds,' 'Supernatural,' 'Castle,' 'NCIS: LA': Find out what's next in the Spoiler Room

Spoiler-Room

Lords and ladies of the Royal Spoiler court, your TV scooper has taken a break from her shameless obsession with the Royal Wedding to bring you a spot of TV scoop fit for Royals and commoners alike.

Quick programming note to all the lovely readers who contacted me thinking I was dead/injured/buried alive on Tuesday when you were hoping for a Spoiler Room: We are on summer schedule, meaning you’ll get the column once a week until fall season. But perhaps I’ll pop in on some Tuesdays with special treats (“perhaps” = “of course!”). And as always, keep a close eye on ITV for daily scoopage.

On to the fun! As always, you great people can send your questions to spoilerroom@ew.com and @EWSandraG on Twitter. See you next week!

‘CRIMINAL MINDS’ FINALE WILL TACKLE BAU’s UNCERTAIN FUTURE

With some key cast members of Criminal Minds still without contracts for next season (i.e., Shemar Moore and the beloved Thomas Gibson), exec producer Erica Messer has penned a cliffhanger for the May 18 finale that will nod to the team’s shaky future — but not with guns and explosions. It will tackle the financial realities of crime fighting — and possible cutbacks in BAU. “It’s a more authentic version of ‘Our team is in jeopardy,’ ” she says. “This instead is, ‘There could be big trouble here, hopefully not,’ but we need to at least acknowledge that it’s on the horizon.” READ FULL STORY

'Parks and Recreation,' 'Bones,' 'Supernatural,' 'Castle': Find out what's next in the Spoiler Room

Happy Friday, Roommates! Lots of scoop in TV land (the best land of them all) this week, so I won’t keep you long. Just a reminder to send your scoop requests/musings/Fringe theories/flattery to spoilerroom@ew.com. You can also find me on Twitter @EWSandraG. See you again same time Tuesday! READ FULL STORY

'Smallville,' 'Supernatural,' 'Burn Notice,' 'The Killing': Find out what's next in the Spoiler Room

What a lovely day it is for television news, Roomies!

I’ll keep today’s usually-rambly intro short: You want scoop? Ask! All you have to do is email me at spoilerroom@ew.com or find me on Twitter (@EWSandraG), where you will see I’ve already started celebrating Supernatural‘s upcoming Western episode (see below for scoop!). Don’t see yours below? Come back Friday; there’s a good chance it might be there then.

Enjoy!

‘SMALLVILLE': BOOSTER GOLD’S BIG ARRIVAL … AND BIG EGO

Smallville‘s better-than-ever farewell season continues Friday with the appearance of Booster Gold and the Blue Beetle/Jaime Reyes in an episode that will have both fans of the mythology and beloved Clois squealing in delight. As teased in previews, the episode indeed features an iconic phonebooth transformation (but not into the full tights-and-cape). The moment is all you’d hope it to be, but what got this nerd really excited? The steps that were taken toward creating a critical part of mythology: our hero’s name. Also great: Lois’ interactions with Jaime, Clark’s almost child-like reaction to Booster douche (who is actually as frustrating as he his hilarious), and the arrival of clumsy Kent. Take it all in, Smallville fans, because we’re in the homestretch. Luckily, the show’s been making it more than worth the 10-year investment. READ FULL STORY

'The Big Bang Theory,' 'Gossip Girl,' 'NCIS,' 'Modern Family': Find out what's next in the Spoiler Room

Happy Tuesday, gang.

I hope you enjoy the offerings this morning, but before you dig in, an announcement: Friday’s mega scoops (the paragraphs you see before “side dishes”) will be READER’S CHOICE and will be chosen purely based on your e-mail requests. Most requested shows win. I’ll be picking three.

So take a moment to dream. If you could have scoop on ANY show, which would it be, and what would you want to know. Again, these will be based purely on volume of requests. (Usually, I pick based on buzzworthiness.)

So cast your vote by emailing me a request to spoilerroom@ew.com or request via Twitter (@EWSandraG).

See you Friday! READ FULL STORY

'Castle': First look at L.A. episode, with guest star Gene Simmons

We’ve been hearing about Castle‘s Los Angeles excursion, but now comes the first look at the episode airing May 2. In the episode, called “To Love and Die in L.A.,” Beckett (Stana Katic) goes rogue and follows a suspect in the shooting death of her former partner to Los Angeles against orders. Castle (Nathan Fillion) tags along, and they end up visiting the set of the Heat Wave movie and enlist the cast to help break the case. Sadly, Laura Prepon won’t recur as the actress playing Nikki Heat, the heroine of Castle‘s crime novels inspired by Beckett. But we will get to meet the two actors playing the fictionalized versions of Esposito and Ryan. (That’s some solid casting with Justice Gamble and Ryan Deal, respectively).

Rock star Gene Simmons pops up as himself and the owner of the Beverly Hills mansion where the victim was living — we’ve got your first look at his guest spot above. READ FULL STORY

'Fringe,' 'Bones,' 'Parenthood,' 'NCIS: LA': Find out what's next in the Spoiler Room

It’s been quite the week for TV, Roomies. And as we head into finale season, the info keeps pouring in!

Below is what I’ve dug up this week, but remember that I use your inquiries as a guide. Let me know what shows you want to know about! And you can do so (as always) in two ways: via e-mail spoilerroom@ew.com and via Twitter @EWSandraG.

FRINGE: EPS TEASE TRIPPIEST EPISODE SINCE ‘BROWN BETTY’
Full disclosure: I was originally going to preview tonight’s episode of Fringe for you, but honestly, I’m in such a pleasant mood over the renewal that I say we move on to bigger matters, like episode 19, airing April 15.

Before the big news, Jeff Pinkner and Joel H. Wyman hopped on the phone with me to tease an episode I’ve been dying to know more about ever since I heard a rumor that it would be Astrid-centered, which, it turns out, isn’t entirely the case. Oh, I’ll just let them explain. READ FULL STORY

'Dancing with the Stars' premiere kicks up a win

More than 22 million people tuned into see the karate kid and a girl from “next door” on Monday’s Dancing with the Stars, according to preliminary ratings. The premiere of the 12th season, which featured Ralph Macchio and Kendra Wilkinson, averaged a 5.1 rating/15 share in adults 18-49 — down 20% from last spring’s start on March 22 but still enough to help ABC win the night in viewers (19 million) and most demos, including persons 2-11 and persons 12-34. The kids came to the show! Should some credit go to Disney star Chelsea Kane?

Thanks to the swell lead in, Castle (3.3/9, 12.7 million) was up 18% from its last original on Feb. 28 — but we’d like to think our cover story helped and got more of you interested. Last night’s results could change when the finals come in this afternoon, so it will be interesting to see if Dancing ends up averaging more than American Idol. Last week, the Fox competition show averaged 22.5 million on Wednesday and 19.5 million on Thursday. Stay tuned.

'Off the Map' doc heading to 'Castle' -- EXCLUSIVE

Jason-GeorgeImage Credit: Mario Perez/ABC Hottie doctor Jason George is ditching the South American jungle and heading stateside for a guest spot on Castle.

In the episode, titled “To Love and Die in L.A.,” Beckett heads to Los Angeles to track down the killer of her former mentor on the force. Meanwhile, Castle tags along to help his partner and also takes the opportunity to stop by the set of Heat Wave.

George plays an entrepreneur who meets the pair along the way, and he proves “to be a key character in solving their new case,” a source reveals. Previously announced guest star Dominic Purcell (Prison Break) will also appear, playing a movie producer.

Happy about this sorta-not-really crossover news, Castle/OTM fans?

Programming note: Spoiler Room will be back on Friday with a supersized edition! Send your questions to spoilerroom@ew.com and @EWSandraG on Twitter!

Jane Seymour on her 'Castle' guest spot: 'I've played a lot of very evil people in my time.'

Jane Seymour, noble Dr. Quinn, medicine woman. She could never harm a thing. Or could she?

You won’t be so sure during tonight’s meta-tastic episode of Castle‘s “One Life to Lose,” which follows Castle and Beckett as they solve a murder that has taken place on the set of a soap opera called Temptation Lane. Seymour plays Gloria, the suspicious mother of the victim who finds herself (in true soap fashion) among a large group of suspects entangled in the mystery.

“As far as we can tell, she really is not necessarily all we imagine her to be. There’s more to Gloria than meets the eye,” she says. And that “more” is nothing good, but for Seymour, who will next be seen in the indie flick Lake Effect, that’s the best part.

“People always think that because of Dr. Quinn that I just play nice family stuff. But the truth of the matter is that East of Eden was a very successful thing for me in the past,” she says, referring to her manipulative character on the miniseries, Cathy Ames. “I’ve played a lot of very evil people in my time.” And after tonight, we’ll all be reminded that she does it rather well, too.
