Terry O'Quinn on 'Hawaii Five-0' first trailer -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO

Terry O’Quinn isn’t going to be stuck behind a desk on Hawaii Five-0.

From the looks of this first trailer for the show’s second season, O’Quinn is a man of action as he takes on bad guys with Steve McGarrett (Alex O’Loughlin). The Lost veteran plays a Navy Seal Lt. Commander who trained McGarrett on the show, which has also enlisted guest stars like Patty Duke, Lauren German, and Tom Sizemore.

Comic-Con 2011: Doc and Dan get totally 'Lost' with Damon and Carlton

Lost might have ended one year ago, but not all’s, well, lost. Not only did EW team-up with Carlton Cuse and Damon Lindelof for Comic-Con’s Lost: One Year Later panel, but the duo stopped by EW’s VIP lounge to talk about the dearly departed series and the “deleted” scene they premiered during the panel. As for their Twitter feud? Says Lindelof, “We do loathe each other, but the Twitter feud was a joke.” Click the jump to hear Lindelof and Cuse talk with EW’s Dan Snierson and Doc Jensen about their Comic-Con experience, whether they’ll be back from more Lost-centered panels in the future, and what we can expect from a Lost: Turn Off the Island musical.

See a 'deleted' 'Lost' scene that Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse revealed at EW's 'Totally Lost' Comic-Con panel!!

A funny thing happened on the way to Room 5AB at Comic-Con this afternoon. Or rather, in Room 5AB. During EW’s Totally Lost: One Year Later panel, Lost exec producers Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse crashed the festivities in fitting Comic-Con style. (Cuse dressed as a stormtrooper; Lindelof was clad in a Dharma jumpsuit and Boba Fett helmet). Not only did they field all sorts of questions from fans, they unveiled a scene from the season 1 finale that supposedly never aired. Yes, the very one hinted at during their cryptic Twitterfeud,” which was resolved at the panel. READ FULL STORY

Comic-Con reaction: What fans had to say about J.J. Abrams' new series 'Alcatraz'

Could J.J. Abrams have another hit on his hands? Or is his new series Alcatraz, debuting this fall on Fox, an all-too-familiar tune?

The audience members flowing out of the last night’s Comic-Con screening in San Diego seemed largely to agree that Abrams’ stamp was all over this new mystery (duh) series, which stars Sarah Jones (Sons of Anarchy), Sam Neill (Jurassic Park), and Lost alum Jorge Garcia. But the twist-filled, time-jumping hour proved to be a lot for some to take in. Here are some of the reactions EW got at the exit door:

Chris Brewer, Sacramento, Calif. — “It was really cool. I really like J.J. Abrams and it felt like one of his. It’s a cool idea and I think they can do a lot with it. It had that Lost feel to it — there were a lot of questions. It’s a little bit supernatural, but also grounded. I like the Alcatraz [prison] setting.” READ FULL STORY

Damon Lindelof to moderate MTV's 'Death Valley' panel at Comic-Con

Looking for another place to find co-creator Damon Lindelof at Comic-Con? Check out MTV’s Death Valley panel on Friday. EW has learned that the Lost co-creator has signed on to moderate the festivities for the half-hour comedic horror series about an Undead Task Force that battles vampires, zombies, and werewolves. (Wes Craven was initially slated to host, but had to drop out.) “I have long fantasized about what would happen if the cast of Jersey Shore were to be attacked by zombies,” Lindelof tells EW. “However, once those zombies inevitably realized their hunger for brains would not be satisfied, they would be forced to move on to someplace decidedly more awesome.  That place is Death Valley.  When they asked me to moderate, how could I resist?  Horror/comedy is a slippery slope, and I for one can’t wait to see this show go down it.” Lindelof, who is writing the screenplay for the sci-fi thriller Prometheus, will also play moderator at panels for 20th Century Fox (Prometheus’ studio) on Thursday and the ABC fantasy drama Once Upon A Time on Saturday. Death Valley debuts Aug. 29 on MTV.

Catching up with the ‘Lost’ cast

First look at ABC's new 'Once Upon a Time' trailer. Charming?

Snow White. Prince Charming. Rumpelstiltskin. What if they weren’t just characters inhabiting the well-worn pages of a children’s fairy tale book, but had been ripped out of the Enchanted Forest by the Evil Queen and sent to present-day, small-town Maine, where they were living as ordinary folks, sadly unaware of their real identities? Hey, it could happen! And it totally does in Once Upon a Time, an ambitious fantasy family drama debuting on ABC in October. In this new trailer, the Queen (Lana Parrilla) wedding-crashes the nuptials of Snow White (Ginnifer Goodwin) and Prince Charming (Joshua Dallas), vowing darkly: “I shall destroy your happiness if it’s the last thing I do!” (If only Trina Decker were still around to slip something in her drink to mellow her out.) You will also meet a rather chilling Rumpelstiltskin (Robert Carlyle), who foretells of eternity-suffering doom-‘n’- gloom unless Snow White and Prince Charming’s daughter, Emma Swan (Jennifer Morrison), can somehow save the day, which probably should involve getting ‘Stilt a spa day.

Is your interest piqued yet? Take note of the five words that attack the screen toward the end of the trailer, one-by-one: FROM. THE. WRITERS. OF. LOST. READ FULL STORY

'Lost' vet to help produce Fox's 'Alcatraz'

As if Alcatraz didn’t have enough of a Lost pedigree, the Fox show has tapped Jack Bender to join the show as executive producer and director. Bender directed many of the biggest episodes of Lost — 36 of them, according to IMDb, including the finale. He rejoins former Lost producers J.J. Abrams, Elizabeth Sarnoff and Bryan Burk on the show which, as you recall, co-stars Jorge Garcia (a.k.a. Hurley). But can the show reproduce the success of the ABC hit? The pilot — about former inmates who disappeared 50 years ago coming back into modern day San Francisco and committing crimes — feels closer to the first episode of Fringe than that other island adventure.

InsideTV Podcast: 'I don't think [Bentley's] mother would like him, either,' says's new Nanny

Press play on the little triangle below to listen to the podcast. “It’s a woman-on-woman crime — and in this case, both of the women are Ashley.” Thanks to InsideTV Podcaster Kristen Baldwin for so succinctly summing up The Bachelorette franchise!

With Dalton Ross on vacation, yours truly bravely stepped in to control the stupid sound effect machine on his desk…a.k.a. host an all-new InsideTV Podcast. This one’s a doozy! First, Kristen Baldwin, Darren Franich and I get off-track by concluding — quite astutely — that dentists should just never date anyone. Then, we call new correspondent Nanny (pictured, inset) to get her hilarious thoughts on losers like the Masked Marvel (Jeff) and despicable reality TV villain Bentley (pictured). After that, Kate Ward and Breia Brissey (famed granddaughter of Nanny) join me for probably the girliest So You Think You Can Dance segment the InsideTV Podcast has ever seen. We answer one of life’s eternal questions: “Tyce Diorio or Tasty Hydrox?” What a relief!

Finally, Jeff “Doc” Jensen, truly the Doubting Thomas in the Caravaggio canvas that is, calls in from L.A. to discuss his final two ‘Lost’ columns and apologize — AGAIN — for the year-long wait. Do stick around until the bitter end, when this spectral shell of a man abruptly hangs up on me and Darren to go call Steven Spielberg!

Ready to go down this digital-audio rabbit hole? Press play on the little triangle below. Or, since we’re on iTunes, you can subscribe for free and take the podcast with you on the go. No iTunes? No problem. You can also download the entire podcast right here. And to send a question to the InsideTV Podcast team, follow us on Twitter @InsideTVPodcast.

'Community': Guest star Josh Holloway and creator Dan Harmon on the paintball season finale

Slap on some goggles and peer out cautiously from behind the corner: It’s almost time for Paintball: The Sequel! A year after Community’s splendid splatterfest “Modern Warfare,” the NBC comedy aims to outdo itself with a two-part season finale (airing May 5 and 12). The first half, titled “A Fist Full of Paintballs,” features a special guest star, Lost’s Josh Holloway, who plays a “mysterious, serious” paintball player named Black Rider. Holloway and series creator Dan Harmon spoke with EW about the big game. READ FULL STORY

'Game of Thrones' author slams 'Lost': Damon Lindelof gives EW his response

Ohhhh, it’s on.

Game of Thrones author George R.R. Martin says in the recent edition of The New Yorker that he doesn’t want the ending of his epic Song of Ice and Fire series to conclude like Lost. Below we have the public war of words, followed by an exclusive Q&A with Lost showrunner Damon Lindelof about Martin’s comments (he was actually reading Game of Thrones when all this went down!) and a look back at his feelings about the Lost ending.

First, here’s Martin in the profile: “We watched [Lost] every week trying to figure it out, and as it got deeper and deeper I kept saying, ‘They better have something good in mind for the end. This better pay off here.’ And then I felt so cheated when we got to the conclusion.” Martin also cites the Lost ending as the type of mistake he fears making with his own show, saying, “I want to give them something terrific. What if I f— it up at the end? What if I do a Lost? Then they’ll come after me with pitchforks and torches.”

Well, Lindelof had something to say about that. Quite a few things. And they were rather hilarious as well. READ FULL STORY

'Lost II?' 'Glee' crossover? 12 traffic-bait headlines we'd like to see


Been a bit slow lately aside from the Mad Men drama. So in honor of April Fools Day, below is our prayer to the TV gods: A dirty dozen of online traffic-boosting headlines we’d like to see:

Lost prequel announced: Peninsula-set reboot to explain everything

– The Glee and Grey’s Anatomy crossover wedding: Yes, it’s happening! READ FULL STORY

Damon Lindelof on AMC's 'Mad Men' offer: $30 million 'seems pretty fair'

Former Lost showrunner Damon Lindelof seemingly has weighed in on AMC’s Mad Men mess.

Apparently responding to reports that Mad Men creator Matthew Weiner is being offered a whopping $30 million to write the show for a three-year deal, Lindelof tweeted: “Not that I’m sour grapes, but TEN MILLION DOLLARS a year for 13 episodes of a single show seems pretty fair, no? #SOURGRAPES.”

Also, one report said that Weiner was being asked to cut not two series regulars, as has been previously reported, but rather two a year for three years. Nobody’s touching that one, but having to cut six characters seems rather extreme (and creatively ridiculous — what a way to zap a show of its narrative believability than to have to eliminate a certain number of characters each season like it’s a reality show).

Meanwhile sources say that a potential deal for a three-year renewal with Weiner on board could be only a few hours away… or maybe only a day… or, well, maybe more than that.

Top TV earners: 'American Idol,' 'Two and a Half Men,' 'Desperate Housewives' top list

Forbes has tallied its annual list of the biggest TV moneymakers and, no surprise, Fox’s American Idol led the list for 2010.

Idol delivered $7.11 million every half hour last year (wow, even the padded results shows?), which was down 12 percent from 2009.

That was followed by CBS’ Two and a Half Men, with $2.89 million per half hour (which gives you an idea why few think the show is going away despite Charlie Sheen exiting). In fact, showrunner Chuck Lorre has three shows in the Top 10.

In third was another series going through some cast issues, ABC’s Desperate Housewives with $2.74 million, which has some actors in contract negotiations. Here’s the Top 10 from last year: READ FULL STORY
