'Smallville' E.P. Kelly Souders Weighs In on Weddings, Clark's Destiny & the Series Finale

by Laura Prudom, posted Apr 8th 2011 1:00PM
Tom WellingFor 10 years, 'Smallville' has been a mainstay of the ever-evolving WB/CW schedule. Through cast, creative and even network changes, the show has stayed as strong as the iconic Man of Steel at its center, displaying near-Kryptonian resilience as lesser series bowed out around it.

But after a decade of watching mild-mannered alien-turned-farm boy-turned-reporter Clark Kent (Tom Welling) trying to change the world from his diminutive hometown, we've finally reached the home stretch. Superman casts a long shadow, and when the show returns from its final hiatus on April 15, we'll see Clark embrace his destiny like never before.

AOL TV caught up with 'Smallville' executive producer Kelly Souders who, along with producing partner Brian Peterson, is ushering in the end of a 'Super' era. We discussed the long-awaited return of Lex Luthor (Michael Rosenbaum), what's in store for the show's most enduring couples and what fans can expect from the final episodes.

'Glee' Elvis Presley has been dethroned by the cast of 'Glee.'

With 113 hit tunes to Presley's 108, the the hit Fox show now officially has the most singles on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.

According to Billboard, the six new tunes on Thursday's chart bring the 'Glee' gang above the King, as well as other musical luminaries like James Brown, Ray Charles, Aretha Franklin and The Beatles. The first 'Glee' entry on the chart came less than two years ago when 'Don't Stop Believin'' landed at number 4 in June 2009.

Lex Luthor Returning For 'Smallville' Finale: Michael Rosenbaum 'Doing it For the Fans'

Michael Rosenbaum as Lex Luthor'Smallville' fans rejoice! Lex Luthor is back!

Last week disappointed fans were coming to terms with news that Michael Rosenbaum wouldn't be returning as Lex Luthor for the series finale. Well, now it seems Rosenbaum was listening to the wailing and gnashing of teeth, as he's changed his mind. Was it our own Brad Trechak's 'Open Letter' that did it?

In an interview with TVLine.com, Rosenbaum confirmed that he's signed a deal to play Superman's archnemesis in the two-hour season finale. "I'm delighted to return for the series finale," he said. "I'm simply doing it for all of the fans out there who made 'Smallville' the great success it is. I appreciate all of their passion, their relentlessness, and even their threats. Ha ha."

Rosenbaum continued, "I can't wait to hug the old crew back in Vancouver one last time and see all of my old friends once again. Oh, and for Lex to become the bad-ass he's destined to be."

Clark Learns He Is a 'Beacon of Hope' for Hundreds of Thousands on 'Smallville' (VIDEO)

by Jason Hughes, posted Feb 14th 2011 3:37AM
Actual fan videos on 'Smallville' - 'Beacon'This season's journey on 'Smallville' (Fri., 8PM ET on The CW) has been Clark Kent's final steps toward becoming the American hero we all know he becomes. The final step toward his destiny seems to be the most difficult for him to achieve. And that's the self-confidence that it takes to be Superman.

We're talking about more than just the confidence to wear a skin-tight suit around all the time, though that takes quite a bit as well. We're talking the confidence and belief in himself that's necessary to be the natural leader, hero and symbol of goodness and hope.

He got a huge boost in that direction this week when he realized how much his work in secret as the Blur is so much more appreciated than he realized.

Why Michael Rosenbaum Should Return for the 'Smallville' Series Finale

by Brad Trechak, posted Feb 11th 2011 7:00PM
Michael RosenbaumAn open letter to Michael Rosenbaum

Dear Mr. Rosenbaum,

Like so many 'Smallville' fans out there, I am quite sorry to hear that you lack the desire to return to the show for its series finale this May.

During the show's first seven seasons, as Lex Luthor, you provided an excellent counterpoint to Tom Welling's Clark Kent and created one of the deepest and most complex modern incarnations of the classic villain.

Granted, you have kept busy since your departure with your work in the DC Animated Universe as well as your television commitments such as 'Saved By Zeroes' and 'Breaking In.' But can you honestly say that either of those series have offered you a role as meaty as the bald-headed arch-nemesis of the biggest superhero icon in the world?

TLC Renews 'My Strange Addiction,' Michael Rosenbaum Won't Be Back on 'Smallville' and More

My Strange AddictionIt appears the car-crash fascination of watching people eat couch cushions and lightbulbs has weighed out over the ick factor.

According to Entertainment Weekly, TLC has renewed 'My Strange Addiction' for a second season. The show "tells the compelling stories of people who are battling obsessive behaviors on the verge of taking over their lives," according to TLC. Subjects who have been profiled in the first season range from an obsessive scab-picker to a woman addicted to eating toilet paper.

The season finale of 'My Strange Addiction' airs Wednesday, Feb. 16, at 9PM ET, and will follow a woman addicted to laxatives and another addicted to "eating pottery and cigarette ashes."

In other TV news ...

Sorry, 'Smallville' fans: Michael Rosenbaum has reportedly shot down any chance of returning for the series finale. "He has put the show behind him and moved on," said a source of the actor, who played Lex Luthor for seven seasons. There's still three episodes left to shoot, so he still has a little bit of time to change his mind. [EW]

Syfy is developing a series about Harry Houdini and Sir Arthur Conan Doyle solving mysteries together in the 1920s. Wait, what?! The steampunk show is called 'Among the Spirits,' and Syfy President of Original Programming Mark Stern called it "a turn-of-the-century 'Fringe.'" [Deadline]

Nielsen could be close to perfecting a tracking system for commercials. The company could offer "brand-specific TV ratings for commercials" so companies can know how much of an impact their commercials have. [The Hollywood Reporter]

'Smallville' Season 10, Episode 12 Recap

smallville Collateral['Smallville' – 'Collateral']

Without warning or explanation, Clark Kent, Lois Lane and a coterie of DC superheroes were knocked unconscious at the end of last December's 'Smallville' mid-season finale. It was one of the biggest WTF moments of the series.

There was a flash of light, the rubber suits hit the floor, and the screen went black. Credits.

The heroes finally woke up last night (a week later than expected), but not before the show could steal liberally from 'The Matrix' and 'Inception' to deliver one of the most enjoyably ridiculous episodes of the season.
