Exclusive: NBC unveils Emmy submissions!

emmy-storyImage Credit: Byron Cohen/NBC; Chris Haston/NBC; Larry Watson/FoxEvery year prior to Emmy nominations, the suits at the major TV studios stuff voters’ mailboxes with tons of DVDs featuring what they feel are their shows’ best episodes of the season. I just got a hold of Universal Media Studios’ fancy Emmy kit, and here are the episodes they chose to single out from this season’s Office, 30 Rock, Parenthood, etc. Note: These may differ from the formal submissions that are used in determining the winners. Also, keep in mind that Emmy-worthy episodes that aired after the mailer deadline could not be included, which is presumably why SNL didn’t include the Betty White episode.

Question: I’m literally dying for some 24 scoop. Please, give me some! – Daniel
Ausiello:
The May 24 series finale will find Jack squaring off against his most formidable adversary yet: Chloe! “Chloe and Jack are in a real face-off,” reveals executive producer Howard Gordon. “And Chloe has to decide between her duty [as head of CTU] and her friendship and allegiance to Jack. Their relationship gets put to the test in a way it’s never been tested before. It’s a collision course that culminates in the finale. It’s about as hairy a confrontation as you can possibly imagine, and it’s a nearly lethal one.” Playing those scenes was “really fun” and “very emotional,” says Mary Lynn Rajskub. “[It's] kind of crazy…what happens between Jack and Chloe. I’ve never done anything like that.”

Question: I realize Katherine Heigl isn’t returning, but will Grey’s Anatomy find a way to give Alex closure about Izzie? —Sharon
Ausiello:
Not on Shonda Rhimes’ watch. The boss lady tells me she has no plans to tie up the loose ends of the Alex-Izzie love story. “It’s going to linger,” she says. “And I actually feel good about it lingering because [it means] Alex is left with unfinished business. And that’s going to be very interesting for his character.” READ FULL STORY

Question: What’s coming up for Sam and Addison on Private Practice? —Lisa
Ausiello:
Things will heat up between those two crazy kids in February, but their guilty consciences will prove a major obstacle. There will also be an added complication involving (MAJOR SPOILER ALERT) another doctor who has long been waiting in the wings.

Question: I am drinking a Diet Raspberry Snapple and thinking of you (in a non-stalker sort of way) and am hoping you might give me some Grey’s Anatomy scoop! —Lesley
Ausiello:
Mexie is M’over. The lovers will break things off this week, but it doesn’t really become official until next week when word of their respective dalliances comes to light. Interestingly, someone’s not as pissed off as I would’ve thought. READ FULL STORY

Ratings: 'Two and a Half Men' delivers huge numbers

Despite Charlie Sheen’s recent negative media coverage, ratings for his sitcom are still huge: last night’s episode of Two and a Half Men scored an impressive 17.3 million viewers, according to preliminary overnight ratings. That’s 1 million more viewers than the sitcom’s last new episode, which aired in December. Over on ABC, The Bachelor: On the Wings of Love actually grew about 1 million viewers from last week’s premiere. And Chuck may be one of the lone bright spots in NBC’s line-up as the action-comedy settled into its regular Monday time slot with a solid 7.3 million.

Press Tour Video: 'Heroes' cast talks death, shake-ups, and a possible season 5

Heroes fans may be split on whether the show should continue on for another season, but there’s no such chasm among the show’s cast. “It would be a shame to end it now,” Jack Coleman told me last night at NBC’s press tour party. “I think there are more stories to tell.” Adds James Kyson Lee: “The funny thing about the [Heroes] world is that there are so many possibilities. It could be us, it could be the next generation of Heroes, maybe we’ll come back older… ” New Heroes? Come back older? What the what?!

Greg Grunberg confident 'Heroes' will be back!

Ratings shmatings. Greg Grunberg says Heroes will be back next fall for a fifth season — and he’s got proof. “We wrapped yesterday and the [final episode] is nowhere near a series finale,” he told us at last night’s People’s Choice Awards. “It is cliffhanger-y and exciting, but it is nowhere near an end to a series that people are so invested in. It does not tie everything up in a neat bow… I don’t have any doubt that the show will be back.” READ FULL STORY

Ratings: 'House' wins and holiday programming scores for ABC

With the Dancing with the Stars season over, House delivered the top ratings for Monday night, according to preliminary overnight ratings. The Fox medical drama delivered 13.2 million viewers. Viewers looking for some holiday spirit tuned in to ABC’s re-airing of Dr. Seuss’ How the Grinch Stole Christmas (9.6 million) and Shrek the Halls (10.0 million). ABC’s new reality drama Find My Family, which aired two back-to-back episodes, dipped quite a bit from last week’s premiere of 12.9 million to 7.9 million and 7.8 million, respectively.

Ratings: CBS scores with 'CSI' crossover

The first episode of CBS’ much-hyped, three-night CSI crossover scored, according to preliminary overnight ratings. Guest star Laurence Fishburne helped CSI: Miami earn 13.8 million viewers, a boost of 1.3 million from last week’s episode. Elsewhere, it was a pretty standard Monday night with ABC’s Dancing with the Stars dominating with 17.6 million viewers. Over on The CW, the controversial threesome episode of Gossip Girl (2.3 million) gave the series only a slight boost from last week’s 2 million.

Ratings: 'Dancing' and baseball lead the night

Fox’s airing of Game 5 of the World Series proved no match for ABC’s Dancing with the Stars last night, according to preliminary overnight ratings. The Yankees/Phillies match-up yielded 15.5 million viewers compared to Stars‘ 16.2 million during the 8-10pm slot. Elsewhere, CBS’ comedy block performed solidly, particularly Two and a Half Men (13.6 million) and The Big Bang Theory (12.7 million).

'Heroes' spoiler alert: The rumors are true

I wasn’t planning to reveal this until after his swan song aired, but outside forces have, um, forced my hand. The rumors are true: Adrian Pasdar is leaving Heroes. And yes, he was the subject of my Oct. 13 blind item.

Okay, show of hands, who guessed correctly?!

Ratings: ABC's 'DWTS' and 'Castle' deliver big to win the night

ABC was the big winner last night with Dancing with the Stars and Castle both seeing boosts from last week’s airings, according to preliminary overnight ratings. Stars nabbed 17.8 million viewers (up from 1.3 million from last week) while Castle hit 11.1 million (up 1.2 million from last week). A possible reason for the uptick in ratings? CBS’ powerful Monday night line-up was all in repeats.
