After seven seasons, it was the end of the journey for Tommy Gavin on 'Rescue Me' (Wed., 10PM ET on FX).

It's hard to say if it's a great ending or a disappointing ending, but a lot of that depends on your expectations going in. I would say it is definitely a satisfactory ending and, more importantly, a consistent ending.

'Rescue Me' has always been about dark humor, guys being the idiots that guys can be, and moments of danger, violence and occasional poignancy. In that, this finale delivered by being absolutely consistent with what this show has always been about.

!!SPOILER ALERT!!

HBO logoThe tenth anniversary of the September 11 terrorist attacks is now just days away, and although the events of that dreadful day will forever be seared into the collective memories of those who lived through it, there are, it seems, some stories still untold.

HBO and 'Time' magazine have partnered to produce a documentary, airing for the first time on the tenth anniversary of the attacks, which tells some of those untold stories.

'Beyond 9/11: Portraits of Resilience' will premiere on Sept. 11 at 8:46AM ET, ten years to the minute that American Airlines Flight 11 crashed into World Trade Center One.

According to HBO, the documentary "highlights transcendent stories of courage, survival and remembrance."

9/11 news coverage unfolds on web

It's been four and a half years since the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001. I don't know about you, but I still get a little emotional when I think too hard about how that morning unfolded. But, if you're interested in looking back at it from a journalistic point of view, here is a good place to do it.

The non-profit television library called The Television Archive has amassed Canadian and American media coverage of that morning over a 15-minute time period from when the first plane hit, through the second plane hitting the towers, and to the first reports of a third plane hitting the Pentagon. You can see how the news outlets responded, who got it right, who got it first, and who, initially, got it totally wrong. For example, Charlie Gibson of Good Morning America, remained totally calm as he reported what he was seeing. While Bryant Gumbel, who was at The Early Show on CBS at the time, saw phantom planes after the first two crashed into the towers, and he got all panicky on air. The entire video montage is about 30 minutes, but you may have to wait a few days to watch it, because now the website is timing out, probably from so much traffic.
