I was watching last Friday's episode of Battlestar Galactica , and it finally hit me: Only 3 more episodes to go before this landmark series comes to a close after 4 spectacular seasons on the Sci-Fi Channel. It may not have been a huge ratings hit (like, say, American Idol or Dancing with the Stars ), but Galactica or BSG, as it has come to be known - was thought-provoking TV at its finest, thanks to great stories and complex characters. Of course, I still have the DVDs, which I plan watching again from the beginning. Then there's Caprica, the prequel series that will turn back the clock to depict how the 12 colonies of humanity sealed their fate by creating the dreaded Cylons in the first place. But the process of having brand-new episodes of BSG to look forward to will be gone, which means my Friday nights will be free again. At least there's solace to not being able to see Galactica's finest in uniform, since I'll be able to see their work on other shows. Katee Sackhoff (Kara Starbuck Thrace): Talk about screen presence, Sackhoff stole NBC's The Bionic Woman from her own short-lived show. She also did a great guest-stint on FX 's Nip/Tuck , and her pilot for Lost and Found was picked up by NBC (presumably for the fall) - she plays a female police detective who's demoted to her department's John Doe division. Tricia Helfer (Caprica Six): Helfer has a recurring role on USA's hit series Burn Notice , which just finished its second season. She recently turned up on NBC's Chuck , and she also filmed the Fox pilot Inseparable, in which she plays a psychiatrist that evaluates suspects for a police department. (Hmm, if it gets picked up, maybe they'll do a crossover with Sackhoff's new show!) Jamie Bamber (Lee Apollo Adama): Just when you thought there wasn't enough Law & Order on TV these days, Bamber plays Detective Matt Devlin on producer Dick Wolf's latest installment of the long-running franchise, Law & Order: London, which airs overseas. Mary McDonnell (President Laura Roslin): McDonnell's a seasoned actress who will never have a problem finding work on TV or in movies, but she's got a great recurring role as Dr. Virginia Dixon on ABC's hit series Grey's Anatomy . Tahmoh Penikett (Karl Helo Agathon): Penikett jumps from one Friday night series to another, co-starring with Eliza Dushku on Dollhouse (created by Buffy mastermind Joss Whedon). The show isn't doing so hot in the ratings, but it's making a stronger presence on DVRs and TiVos. Aaron Douglas (Chief Galen Tyrol): Douglas guest-starred on The Bionic Woman, and his new series, called The Bridge, debuts on CBS this fall. It's you guessed it a police drama. Grace Park (Sharon Boomer Valeri/ Athena ): After playing so many roles on BSG (gotta love those Number 8 models!), Park would be forgiven for taking a break. But she just wrapped the first season of A&E's The Cleaner (with Benjamin Bratt), and season 2 premieres later this year. Michael Hogan (Col. Saul Tigh): Hogan doesn't have anything lined up at the moment, which is surprising. As the tortured, conflicted and deeply troubled Col. Tigh, Hogan took the proverbial bull by the horns and ran with one of the most fascinating characters to ever grace the small screen. So if anyone deserves their own frakkin' show, it's him.

With three more episodes to go " Battlestar Galactica " is revealing more and more about the disturbing truth. Apart from losing more crew after Hera, it is revealed that Galactica is dying. The episode will run March 6 on Sci Fi. The show will wrap up its entire series in a three-hour event on March 20. Coming out to speak of the final hours, Katee Sackhoff who plays Starbuck emphasizes that there's always people assuming that she could still be a Cylon. "I'm just going to go ahead and let them believe what they want because there's nothing I could say that's going to convince anyone otherwise," she said to Hero Complex. Recently there has been a talk that Universal has been in negotiations with Glen A. Larson to write and produce a big-screen version of the series. It is however, will not be a stretch of the series but rather made in a new medium. The studio is expected to make an official announcement in the coming weeks. To Watch The Preview Click Here .

* Supernanny (9 pm/ET ABC) Tonight's episode finds Jo back in merry old England again, but things are not so cheery for a couple with four kids, all of whom are under the age of 10. This time, however, it's not just the kids who need disciplining: Jo will have to work her magic on a do-nothing dad who seems content to sit back and watch his wife do all the work, which puts a terrible strain on their marriage. * Wolverine and the X-Men (8 pm/ET Nicktoons) The character Wolverine first came onto the scene in an Incredible Hulk comic book, and tonight these two superheroes get to have a reunion. Wolverine is blackmailed into going after the mean, green monster, who has been on a destructive rampage. While searching for the Hulk in the wilderness, Wolverine realizes Wendigo is out there on the loose as well. So now Wolverine has to deal with not one, but two raging monsters. Life's not easy for a superhero mutant. * Dollhouse (9:01 pm/ET Fox) Hey, if Buffy could sing, why not Faith? While far from a "Once More, With Feeling" songfest, this should be fun: Eliza Dushku demonstrates her singing and dancing chops when Echo is imprinted with the persona of a backup singer in order to provide protection to a pop star (Jaime Lee Kirchner) who's being stalked by an obsessed fan. * Battlestar Galactica (10 pm/ET SCI FI) Don't you just hate it when you take a trip to a once-coveted destination and everyone thinks you died on the way, then you turn up alive and later go back to that place only to find your corpse there? Starbuck hates that, too. The ace viper pilot wrestles with her identity crisis while Boomer learns that the reward for bringing Ellen back into the fold is: "No good deed goes unpunished." * Numb3rs (10 pm/ET CBS) Aya Sumika is front and center in this tension-filled episode, in which her special agent Liz Warner goes undercover to orchestrate a complex drug deal. It's all set in motion when Charlie targets a new illegal drug known as Hawaiian Ice as the next big thing to hit the streets. He wants to dry up the market before the drug catches on by buying up the limited supply available. His plan sounds great, but it puts Liz in danger when she must meet with four drug dealers who control the hot Ice in L.A. Source here

Monk (9 pm/ET USA) The seventh season wraps up tonight with a case that has special significance to Monk. He's investigating the disappearance of a city official who was lobbying to preserve a parking garage. But what's so personal about that? Well, it's the garage where Monk's wife was killed by a car bomb that he believes was intended for him. The series is scheduled to return for its eighth and final season this summer. Late Night with Conan O'Brien (12:35 am/ET NBC) After 16 years and 2,725 episodes, flame-haired host Conan O'Brien closes the curtain on his consistently entertaining late-night show tonight. Don't expect a Bette Midler tune to send him off ÃÂ la Johnny Carson's last show - but then again, you never know with Conan's twisty sense of humor. We do know that he's got visceral garage-rock blasters the White Stripes on the slated performance roster. In addition, expect choice comic bits from episodes past (Conan's been doing that all week), plus favorite guests of the show and a surprise or two. Conan's not moanin', however: He returns to NBC on June 1 as the new host of The Tonight Show. Psych (10 pm/ET USA) Shawn finds himself in a heap of trouble in tonight's Season 3 finale. The elusive Yin Yang serial killer, who's been off the police's radar for years, suddenly reappears with - of course - his sights set on Shawn. Cybill Shepherd reprises her role as Shawn's mom, Madeline, and Rachael Leigh Cook guest stars as Shawn's high-school crush, Abigail. There's nothing like being hunted by a serial killer to bring the whole crew together, huh? Real Time with Bill Maher (10 pm/ET HBO ) Tonight's seventh-season premiere is notable not just for an earlier time slot, but it's the first time the show, which debuted in 2003, will take place with a Democrat in the White House. Of course, that doesn't mean Maher won't have some choice words about Barack Obama's nascent presidency, but there are certainly other fish to fry. Among tonight's guests are Tina Brown, publisher of the website the Daily Beast, and Chrystia Freeland, U.S. managing editor of the Financial Times. Battlestar Galactica (10 pm/ET SCI FI) Tonight's chapter takes a page from the Clash's songbook as Ellen's return has the skin jobs wondering, "Should I stay or should I go?" With Galactica in need of a major overhaul, the rebel Cylons consider making a fresh start of things by ditching the Colonials. Will the final five show their mettle and stand by Adama and Co. - or are they really fair-weather friends? Source here
