'Nurse Jackie' boss answers: Will Jackie get a happy ending?

Nurse Jackie is ready for its final shift.

Though Jackie (Edie Falco) was arrested during the season finale, a promo for the Showtime series’ final season showed that the pill-popping addict will be back at work thanks to a lawsuit for wrongful termination, though she will have to earn the trust of her peers and family back. It’s become a bit of a running theme for Nurse Jackie in that the titular character has lied and schemed her way out of nearly every worst-case scenario and has lived to tell the tale. But will she be so lucky when the series comes to a close this year?

'Nurse Jackie' season 6 sneak peek: Deceit, descent, destruction -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO

Jackie’s life is only going to get more complicated in season 6 of Showtime’s Nurse Jackie, according to star Edie Falco.

When we left off in season 5, Jackie fell off the sobriety wagon, and it seems her slip-up was not a one-time thing. “These pills are like hand grenades and these hand grenades throw off shrapnel,” teases EP and showrunner Clyde Phillips in the video below. “It’ll affect everybody in her life.”

For more on the descent, deceit, and destruction that awaits Jackie this year and what’s up with a few of the other players in the hospital — like Coop (Peter Facinelli) — watch the video below. READ FULL STORY

InsideTV Podcast: Amy Schumer reveals the too-offensive sketch Comedy Central wouldn't let her show

Amy Schumer has no problem pushing buttons on her new show Inside Amy Schumer. But there are a select few buttons her channel, Comedy Central, deemed simply unpushable. Schumer stopped by the TV Recap show on Entertainment Weekly Radio (channel 105 on SiriusXM) and revealed to Jessica Shaw and me one controversial sketch for her program that Comedy Central wouldn’t let her air. “I wanted to write a sketch where a guy tried to kill himself and had a failed suicide attempt, but then still had to come to work on Monday,” said Schumer. “And everyone knew, but he didn’t get his work done and he is like, ‘Well, I didn’t think I was going to be here.’ And we wanted it to be like he was a hipster — like, what would a failed suicide be as a hipster? And I think they were like, ‘that’s too sensitive’ or ‘too personal’.”

It also sounds too hilarious. So what other topics has her channel deemed off-limits? “The sort of hot-button stuff switches,” said Schumer. They want you to stay away from Muslim stuff a little bit. And, like, rape, I guess. And domestic violence.” So there you have it! To hear the entire interview with Schumer — in which she also discusses her take on penis photos and reveals whom she smoked pot through an apple with — just click on the audio player below. It is soooooo worth the click. READ FULL STORY

Showtime renews 'Nurse Jackie' for season 5

Pills for everyone! Showtime’s Nurse Jackie will be checking back into your DVR next year as the network announced today that the Edie Falco-helmed dramedy will return for a fifth season. In addition to the renewal, the network named former Dexter exec producer Clyde Phillips as the medical series’ new showrunner.

Beyond Dexter, Phillips returns to Showtime with a number of other television creations under his belt, including Get Real (the tragically cancelled 1999 Anne Hathaway-Jesse Eisenberg series), Suddenly Susan, and Parker Lewis Can’t Lose. Considering Phillips’ experience in turning a serial killer into the father of the year, he should have no problem handling the wickedly witty, totally messed-up life of emergency room nurse Jackie Peyton. Sounds like a perfect match, no?

Production on Nurse Jackie will begin in late 2012, although a season premiere date has not yet been announced.

Bobby Cannavale joins 'Nurse Jackie'

The hospital on Nurse Jackie is about to get a whole lot sexier: Bobby Cannavale will appear as a special guest star in the fourth season of the Showtime comedy.

The Emmy and Tony award winner will play a hospital administrator sent by a conglomerate that buys the beleaguered All Saint’s Hospital. Cannavale’s character will show up to “improve the hospital’s efficiency and profitability,” and probably speed up a few pulses along the way. He’ll appear in all 10 episodes.

Production on season four begins in September in New York for a 2012 premiere.

Cannavale’s other TV credits include Six Feet Under, Cupid and Will & Grace.
