Also: Kate Gosselin's long overdue departure from 'Dancing With the Stars' -- do we feel sorry for her, or think it's long past time for her to exit the spotlight?

Patricia Chui, Mike Hess, Denise Warner and Kelly Woo discuss the premiere of HBO's new drama 'Treme' -- can it live up to its predecessor, 'The Wire'? Does it make us know what it means to miss New Orleans?

And we bid farewell to 'Ugly Betty' with a look at how Betty's story ended (or, started anew) on the series finale, including the ambiguous ending with Daniel. Plus we throw in our favorite series finales ever, just for fun, because we're givers that way.

DVR Divas: 'Bones' and Other TV Couples, the Return of 'Glee'

by Patricia Chui, posted Apr 12th 2010 4:30PM
Bones'Bones' just aired its 100th episode, and used the occasion to tease Bones and Booth's potential romantic relationship with a kiss ... that happened in the past. Is the show, by trying not to pull a 'Moonlighting,' toying with fans too much?

Patricia Chui, Chris Harnick, Andrew Scott and Denise Warner (of Girls on Pop fame), in discussing how the 'Bones' 100th episode may be the last straw for loyal viewers, reminisce about other will-they-or-won't-they TV couples (Mulder and Scully, Jim and Pam, Ross and Rachel) and whether or not they ruined their shows.

Also: We're psyched for the second-half premiere of 'Glee,' and we tell you what's in store for the 'Glee' kids this season -- as well as what the show needs to do to keep being great.
