'Lost' and 'Heroes' top list of most pirated shows of 2010

heros2Image Credit: Chis HastonTwo shows that bid farewell in 2010 under drastically different circumstances topped the list of the most pirated television programs of the year, according to TorrentFreak.com. Lost, which wrapped after six seasons, was illegally downloaded nearly six million times, while Heroes, which NBC canceled in May after a disappointing fourth season, recorded more downloads than its average weekly television audience. (In other words, people in New Zealand were willing to break the law to watch a show NBC couldn’t give away in America for free!)

Dexter, which ranked third, also posted more pirated episodes than the Showtime hit’s lawful average viewership. The rest of the top 10 included: The Big Bang Theory, House, How I Met Your Mother, 24, True Blood, Glee, and Family Guy.

While he might have escaped The Island in Lost, Jorge Garcia is set to return to a different island in J.J. Abrams’ new series Alcatraz. Garcia’s rep confirms with EW that the Lost star will topline the Fox pilot centered on the historic San Francisco slammer. Garcia is on board to play an Alcatraz expert in the pilot, which will follow a group of prisoners and guards who appear in the present day. And, once again, prepare for another head-scratcher — Abrams’ series, written by Lost executive producer Elizabeth Sarnoff, will (quite predictably) be a mystery.

Emmy Video: As the 'Lost' boys say goodbye, Damon Lindelof puts the blame on Carlton Cuse

For me, the Emmys meant a paid vacation to L.A. and a chance to score as much swag as I could fit into a carry-on. But for the Lost gang, it meant a last chance to say goodbye, to the show and each other. Somehow, though, when I spoke with exec producer Damon Lindelof, Terry O’Quinn, Nestor Carbonell and Jorge Garcia, they managed to hold back the tears. Maybe that’s because O’Quinn distracted himself by playing coy about his bromance with Michael Emerson and their (hush-hush, don’t-say-it-out-loud) hopes to reteam on screen; Carbonell had Peter O’Toole on the brain (let him explain); Garcia was thinking up a lovely message for the haters who dissed the finale; and Lindelof… well, he went back and re-solved “the Walt problem” all over again, then revealed that he blames partner-in-crime Carlton Cuse for… Oh, right. He can tell you himself, and does just that in the video after the jump. READ FULL STORY

EW Emmy party video: 'Lost' nominee Michael Emerson responds to 'Office' gossip

emerson-240.jpgThe short list of possible successors to Steve Carell’s Office throne seems to get longer with each passing day, but one name has emerged as the clear choice among fans and professional TV watchers alike: Michael Emerson. And yes, the Lost Emmy nominee has heard the talk. Even better, he’s interested in the job—and he told me so at Entertainment Weekly‘s pre-Emmy bash last night. Emerson also weighed in on the recently released Ben-centric Lost epilogue and the possibility of joining his real-life bride Carrie Preston on True Blood. “I could play the mild-mannered accountant that gets torn limb by limb by supernatural beings,” he suggested. “People could pick up my gooey mess and put it in a bowl.”

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

Emmys 2010: How 'Lost,' 'Mad Men,' 'Glee' and 'Modern Family' will go after the gold

ausiello-emmy-predixImage Credit: Mike Yarish/AMC; Carin Baer/Fox; Bob D'Amico/ABC; Mario Perez/ABCWill the super-sized series finale help Lost win the Emmy for Outstanding Drama? Will the pilot and Madonna episodes be enough to convince voters that Glee was the funniest show last season? We found out what episodes the shows are submitting for Emmy night’s biggest categories on Aug. 29. But first, know this: a reported 300 or so members of the TV Academy serve as judges for the two categories, though they don’t see all the episodes submitted for consideration. Six are handed over from each show, and then the judges are separated into three groups, each receiving two episodes (the show producers actually choose the pairings).

Do the voters take the time to watch all of the pairings? We sure hope so. Here are all the submissions: READ FULL STORY
