It's a huge revelation, seeing as much of the conflict in the series has revolved around 'A' and his or her's manipulative messages.

"We're running on adrenaline to the finish line," said creator and executive producer Marlene King. "This finale is virgin territory in the sense that we are answering some ultra huge questions. We're giving the audience a lot to digest and talk about between seasons two and three."

Chelsea Clinton on 'NBC Nightly News'Last night Chelsea Clinton made her debut as an NBC News special correspondent. The former First Daughter appeared on 'Nightly News With Brian Williams' to introduce her 'Making a Difference' segment, which aired in full later on 'Rock Center.'

So, how did she do? Pretty well, as it turned out. Chatting to Williams she was poised and confident, with perhaps just a hint of nerves underlying her banter.

Clinton's report featured the work of Annette Dove, who helps underprivileged children in Pine Bluff, Ark. With food, shelter and tutoring, Dove provides a safety net for some of the most vulnerable members of the community.

Check out Clinton's debut after the jump. And listen closely: When she said, "Thank you Brian, I'm very happy to be here," did somebody in the studio clap?

Chuck Lorre: Revamping 'Two and a Half Men' Was Exciting (EXCLUSIVE)

by Maggie Furlong, posted Dec 12th 2011 11:55PM
TV Guide Magazine features Chuck Lorre & his starsThe very public battle between Charlie Sheen and his one-time 'Two and a Half Men' boss Chuck Lorre has been well-documented, but since relaunching his hit CBS series with Ashton Kutcher, Lorre hasn't said much about his former star's "winning" meltdown and subsequent replacement.

In the latest issue of TV Guide Magazine, which hits newsstands Thursday, Dec. 15, Lorre talks to editor Michael Schneider, who's been teasing that the man of many multi-cam sitcoms finally tells all.

But it's worth noting that it's Emmy winner Jon Cryer -- not the recently gossip-plagued Kutcher -- who's gracing the cover with Lorre, along with 'Mike & Molly' funny lady Melissa McCarthy and Jim Parsons of 'The Big Bang Theory,' who've both also taken home Emmy love for their Lorre-created roles. He must be doing something right ...

We've got the exclusive first tease of TV Guide Magazine's interview with Lorre, including why the revamp was so "exciting" and how life imitated art for hard-partying, goddess-worshipping Sheen, who'll forever be linked to (and compared to) his now-departed TV alter-ego Charlie Harper.

VeepAlong with the preview of 'Luck' -- check out Maureen Ryan's thoughts on that here -- HBO unleashed two very different, yet still amusing, previews for its two new comedies, 'Veep' and 'Girls.'

In 'Veep' (premiering April 2012), Julia Louis-Dreyfus stars as the vice president of the United States. As if we should be so lucky. From the ultra short, yet intriguing promo below, it's safe to say we're in for some laughs.

'Girls' comes from 'Tiny Furniture' writer/star Lena Dunham and Judd Apatow.

Dunham's 'Tiny Furniture' co-star Jemima Kirke, 'NBC Nightly News' anchor Brian Williams' daughter Allison Williams, stage actor Adam Driver and 'Mad Men's' Zosia Mamet also star.
