'Lost' Star Michael Emerson 'Still Reeling' About New Series with Terry O'Quinn

by Chris Harnick, posted Sep 24th 2010 12:05PM
Terry O'Quinn, Michael EmersonWe're pretty excited about the new Michael Emerson/Terry O'Quinn series that's in the works at NBC.

Pretty much every 'Lost' fan is giddy at the thought of Ben Linus and John Locke reuniting as ex-spies in a comedic drama from J.J. Abrams. Why should Emerson himself be any different?

The 'Lost' veteran told Entertainment Weekly via email that he's "still reeling from the sudden turn of events."

You see, the two Emmy-winning actors started floating around the show proposal as a joke. Pretty soon the media -- yes, us included -- picked up the story and, well, now they have a pilot at NBC.

Is the 'Persons Unknown' Finale the Worst Series Finale Ever? (VIDEO)

by Oliver Miller, posted Aug 30th 2010 1:15AM
Is the 'Persons Unknown' Finale the Worst Series Finale Ever?Well, we were promised answers. And we didn't really get them. This was the two-hour season finale of 'Persons Unknown' (Sat., 9PM ET on NBC). Considering that the show has gotten incredibly low ratings, it seems highly doubtful that it will be back next year. Thus, this is essentially our series finale as well. So, were all the loose ends tied up?

Emmy Picks: Best Drama Series

by Joel Keller, posted Aug 26th 2010 1:00PM
Nominees for Best Drama at the 2010 Emmys
With the Emmy awards just days away, I'm continuing to pick who I think should and who I think will win the major awards.

Yesterday, I discussed the Best Lead Actor in a Comedy category. Today we start looking at the big two awards, beginning with Best Drama.

'Breaking Bad'
'Mad Men'
'The Good Wife'
'True Blood'

Who will win:
I don't think that the Academy voters would put 'Lost' in this category, especially since they stopped nominating it giving them the prize after its first season, unless they intended on giving it the award. This has happened before when a well-regarded, long-running series ends; 'Hill Street Blues' took home a U-Haul full of awards after its last season in 1987, for instance. And 'Lost' has been such a part of the cultural conversation since its debut that the Academy would be hard pressed to give it to another show. Think of this as more of a Lifetime Achievement award than an award for anything in 'Lost''s final season.

News Roundup: 'Real Housewives of New Jersey' Get Banned, 'Glee' Wants more Britney Spears and More

by Chris Harnick, posted Aug 23rd 2010 6:45PM
Jacqueline Laurita's daughter on 'The Real Housewives of New Jersey' wasn't the only person who got in trouble for the ratings bonanza country club scuffle. The entire cast and crew of the Bravo reality series has been banned from the North Jersey Country Club in Wayne, NJ.

According to E! Online, the country club staff claims they were mislead about the nature of event and "embarrassed with the staged behavior" of several cast members.

"It is safe to say that the 'Real Housewives of New Jersey' cast and crew members are not welcome at the North Jersey Country Club and I assure you that nothing like this will ever occur again at this club," John Stanley, general manager of the club, wrote in a letter.

Emmy Picks: Best Lead Actor in a Drama

by Joel Keller, posted Aug 23rd 2010 1:02PM

With the Emmy awards less than a week away, I'm continuing to pick who I think should and who I think will win the major awards.

On Friday, I discussed the Best Lead Actress in a Drama category. Today we look at their male counterparts in the Best Lead Actor in a Drama category.

Kyle Chandler, 'Friday Night Lights'
Bryan Cranston, 'Breaking Bad'
Matthew Fox, 'Lost'
Michael C. Hall, 'Dexter'
Jon Hamm, 'Mad Men'
Hugh Laurie, 'House'

Who will win:
Wow. You could make a case for everyone in this category, given the strong episodes they each submitted. That being said, Bryan Cranston didn't give the Academy any reason to avoid giving him the award for the third year in a row. 'Breaking Bad' had an exceptionally strong season, and it says a lot that I don't even think Cranston was the best actor on his show this year -- Aaron Paul did that good of a job, but he's nominated in the supporting category -- but I still think he will take the prize.

Consider me your fairy squirrel baby! I can make that dream come true for 12 lucky fans.

Michael Emerson On the Final 'Lost' DVD, His Next Gig & 'Big Bang Theory'

by Maggie Furlong, posted Aug 11th 2010 9:00AM
Michael Emerson, 'Lost'Have you been debating about polar bears, glowing caves and alternate timelines for the better part of six years? Find yourself humming those catchy Drive Shaft lyrics every now and then? Maybe you've been staring at Weezer's new "Hurley" album cover a little too much?

Diagnosis: You're missing 'Lost' as much as I am.

As the release date for the final season DVD nears (Tues., Aug. 24), I can't help but imagine what special features we'll find on those precious discs. (And for those of you who watched the leaked epilogue, never fear -- there's still more bonus material where that came from.)

Emmy-winning star Michael Emerson tells me all about the mechanics and lighter tone of that now-infamous epilogue, in which he's compelling as ever. He also talks about the finale (he approves), the upcoming cast reunion at the Emmys, his 'Lost' houseguests and life on another island. Then he humors me with talk of the much buzzed about project with him and fellow 'Lost' alum Terry O'Quinn, his love of TV and mixing things up.

Hey guys at 'Big Bang Theory,' are you reading this? Call the man now!

Ryan Murphy and the cast of 'Glee' accept their TCA award for Program of the Year for 2009-10
The TCA Awards are always a hoot, mainly because the critics put their tape recorders away and just hang out with the folks we're honoring that night. And tonight, there was a pretty good crowd:

-- Ryan Murphy accepted three awards on behalf of 'Glee' (Best New Program, Program of the Year, and Jane Lynch's award for Outstanding Achievement in Comedy), he and writer Ian Brennan extolling the importance of public funding for school arts programs,

-- Tom Hanks, accepting the Outstanding Miniseries or Movie award for 'The Pacific' saying 'I'm not f--king dressing up for you guys anymore" after seeing host Dax Shepard's red suit, Murphy's t-shirt-under-tux-jacket look, and the entire cast of 'Yo Gabba Gabba' out to accept the award for Outstanding Youth Programming,

-- Damon Lindelof, accepting the Outstanding Achievement in Drama Award for 'Lost' (which tied with 'Breaking Bad') reading all the nasty tweets he got after the show's epic finale,

-- Steven Levitan, accepting the Outstanding Achievement in Comedy Award for 'Modern Family,' telling the crowd that he was out of the country and didn't have time to memorize his speech, then talking about just-departed ABC entertainment chief Steve McPherson, quoting him as saying "as long as I'm around, your show is safe."

Matthew Fox, Jimmy Kimmel Find Extra 'Lost' Secret in DVD Box Set (VIDEO)

Matthew Fox Finds Extra 'Lost' Secret on 'Jimmy Kimmel Live'We haven't seen Jimmy Kimmel this excited in a long time. Matthew Fox dropped by 'Jimmy Kimmel Live' (weeknights, 12:05AM ET on ABC), and the two dug through the giant 'Lost' DVD box set.

"There's all kinds of crazy secrets inside this thing," explained Fox. "It's like a puzzle and you have to go through it, and clues lead to other clues. And then you find secret discs and secret scenes."

Kimmel and Fox found a map, the game that Jacob and the Man in Black played, a letter and a tiny black-light for certain clues. "Also good if you go to a motel, and you wanta check out the sheets," offered Kimmel helpfully.

The host then pulled out a magazine ad featuring a youthful Fox as a preppy JC Penney model. Hidden secrets indeed.

ABC Entertainment President Steve McPherson Quits

by Scott Harris, posted Jul 28th 2010 1:20PM
Steve McPhersonWhile fans are still recovering from the onslaught of television news that came out of Comic-Con over the weekend -- William Shatner on 'Human Target!' 'Glee's' 'Rocky Horror Picture Show' tribute! 'The Event' is a must-see! -- Disney and ABC slipped in a short announcement last night about a back office move involving someone most fans have never heard of. But before you shrug your shoulders over the news that ABC Entertainment President Steve McPherson has quit, we have a few reasons why you might care after all: 'Lost,' 'Desperate Housewives,' 'Grey's Anatomy,' 'Dancing With the Stars' and 'Modern Family.'

That's because McPherson, who abruptly announced his departure last night in a series of bland press releases -- ABC's particularly emotionless comments simply stated that "Steve McPherson today submitted his resignation as President, ABC Entertainment Group, and the Company accepted" -- was responsible for bringing all those fan favorite shows to the small screen over the last six years.
