‘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.

benching their freshman comedy series Running Wilde, Fox has declined to order the back nine episodes for the Tim Roth drama Lie To Me, currently in its third season. But fans should hold their tears for now.A little less than a month after
Since mid-November, we’ve known that Lie to Me would surrender its timeslot to newbie cop drama The Chicago Code, which is produced by Shawn Ryan, the man behind The Shield and the recently shuttered Terriers. The shift was not completely surprising, considering the series has over the course of its run performed solidly in a number of timeslots. (Its series premiere even held its own when it went head-to-head with the fifth season premiere of Lost.) The show’s versatility could prove its saving grace come renewal time.
Most recently, the show went into its scheduled hiatus on a high note. The Nov. 29 episode posted the show’s highest numbers of the season in both total viewers (6.4 million) and in the 18-49 demographic.
Battlestar Galactica‘s Tricia Helfer takes her well-honed maneater act over to Lie to Me on Oct. 25 when she guest stars as a seemingly troubled woman who catches Lightman’s (Tim Roth) eye. In reality, she’s a con artist using him to steal a priceless artifact during a big museum gala. Will you be watching?!
killed and buried Lone Star so quickly that it’s almost hard to be happy that its demise has led to the third-season premiere of Lie to Me being bumped up from Nov. 10 to…um, Monday (when it assumes the DOA drama’s time slot). But try to be happy anyway, okay? Series lead Tim Roth and I have even come up with five excellent reasons why you should forgive his show for jumping into Lone Star‘s grave. READ FULL STORYI know.

Question: Where is the Hugh Laurie interview you promised us from the Emmys?! House fans are an impatient lot! —Gillian
Ausiello: First off, simmer yourself. I’ve had a lot on my plate the past few days, if you hadn’t noticed. Second, the interview is RIGHT. HERE.
So they’re finally going there with Huddy.
HUGH LAURIE: It seems that way.
LAURIE: I’m scared for him. Terrified. But so far so good. Baby steps.
Are you happy they finally took the plunge?
LAURIE: I care less about what happens than how it happens. And if you do it right, it will work. And if we don’t do it right, nothing works. But I think we’ve danced around the idea long enough; it was time to take some action.
Is it safe to say that if it doesn’t work with Huddy it won’t work with anyone?
LAURIE: That’s a possibility. He might be fatally flawed.
Question: Please give me some scoop about Jenny’s return to Gossip Girl! —Giovanni
Ausiello: I was right. Jenny’s reappearance is directly connected to Tim Gunn’s upcoming cameo. Turns out Blair permits her nemesis to return to the scene of her last crime (i.e., Manhattan) just long enough for her to interview for a job with Gunn at Parsons. Without giving too much away, Raccoon Eyes inadvertently gets caught up in Chuck and Blair’s latest drama, and the whole mess comes to a head at (natch) a big fancy party. READ FULL STORY
