From The Futon Critic: "FOX is giving viewers a holiday treat on Saturday, July 4. Network sources have confirmed to the site exclusively that the two-hour pilot to Virtuality will air on said night at 8:00/7:00c. Co-created by Michael Taylor and Ronald D. Moore ( Battlestar Galactica ), the sci-fi drama revolves around the crew of the Phaeton, Earth's first starship. To endure the 10-year journey, the astronauts use virtual reality modules which allow them to assume avatars and explore self-created scenarios. But just as the mission is about to enter its critical go/no-go phase, a virus begins to infect the system and puts all of their lives on the line. The show's ensemble cast includes Clea DuVall, Erik Jensen, Gene Farber, James D'Arcy, Jimmi Simpson, Jose Pablo Cantillo, Joy Bryant, Kerry Bishe, Nelson Lee, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, Omar Metwally, Richie Coster and Sienna Guillory. Peter Berg helmed the Universal Media Studios-based pilot and executive produced alongside Taylor, Moore, Gail Berman, Lloyd Braun and Sarah Aubrey." And from SciFi Wire : "It's not clear if the show is being picked up as a series; the pilot was ordered revamped during production. Fox announces its fall lineup on May 18."

Some ratings highlights for the weekend: The final episode of Battlestar Galactica drew 2.4 million viewers - up 56% from the Season 3 finale. Dollhouse 's big game-changing episode dipped slightly to 4.13 viewers - though this was somewhat expected due to the BSG finale and in fact was good enough for a 3rd place finish (though the downside is this means Friday Night Lights finished in 4th for the hour). Skipping over to Sunday, some bad news for Kings fans. In its second outing, the show dropped 23% to only 4.3 million viewers. Winners for the night included 60 Minutes with Barack Obama (16.2 million viewers), Desperate Housewives (14.7 million viewers), Cold Case (10.8 million viewers) and Brothers & Sisters (10.4 million viewers).

* Battlestar Galactica (9 pm/ET Sci-Fi ) While many shows lose their viewership and often get yanked off the air without the benefit of a scripted finale, there are a few that retain their audiences until they get to say a proper good-bye to their fans. Closure is nice, but this is frakking Battlestar Galactica we're talking about! The bell tolls for the series after four seasons with a two-hour episode, in which Adama and Co. launch a desperate recovery mission for Hera. Keep the tissues handy. * Friday Night Lights (9 pm/ET NBC) Now that Tyra's renewed interest in bad boys has blown up in her face, she decides it's time to play nice with Landry once again. But Landry doesn't exactly welcome her back with open arms, and it's up to Tyra to prove she can be a "giver" and not just a "taker." Elsewhere, Buddy blindsides Lyla when he comes clean about problems he's having. But that surprise is nothing compared to the shocking discovery Eric makes in tonight's episode. * Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles (8 pm/ET Fox) Normally, it's what you did in your past that affects your future, but that line of reasoning gets tossed out the window when people and machines habitually visit the past to change the outcome of a war that hasn't happened yet. Jesse's submarine ride in the future spells trouble for Sarah, John and Derek in the present while Cameron's future (also in the present) hangs in the balance. * Dog Whisperer (9 pm/ET National Geographic) Young and the Restless star Eileen Davidson calls upon Cesar Milan to help rehabilitate her nippy wheaten terrier, who has a habit of biting her son and frightening away all of his friends. Later, the dog guru helps a Jack Russell terrier named Elvis who gets all shook up when his owner runs the garbage disposal. * Party Down (10:30 pm/ET Starz) A promising new entry in cable sitcomville has quite the impressive pedigree. One of the creators-executive producers-writers is Rob Thomas, who was the main man behind Veronica Mars. This new series chronicles the workaday misadventures of a crew of employees at an L.A.-based catering company called Party Down, where all the workers are showbiz wannabes. Among the regulars are former Mars-tians Ryan Hansen and Ken Marino, while Veronica's TV dad, Enrico Colantoni, guest stars on the premiere. Ms. Mars herself, Kristen Bell, is slated to appear on an upcoming episode. Source here
Look, we don't like to criticize. But it's all we learned this week from the world of TV: Griping on Dancing with the Stars . Whining on American Idol. Sawyer teaching Jack how to lead on Lost. Why can't everyone be like Battlestar Galactica 's Admiral Adama, letting silence speak louder than words? We apologize for the nit-pickiness of this week's Top Moments, and look forward to your critiques. 11. Feintest Praise: Visiting Dublin for St. Patrick's Day, Today co-host Meredith Vieira samples a Guinness mixed with champagne and excitedly declares it "not bad." Please, you're surrounded by Irish people, representing the United States. Tell them it's brilliant! 10. Truth-in-Advertising Award: We didn't know what to believe anymore after ABC faked us out with Brothers & Sisters promos that (dishonestly) promised someone would die. But kudos to the network for staying true to their guarantee of girl-on-girl Desperate Housewives action. Now if only they'd do something about desperate ratings bait. 9. Most Devilish Reveal: Supernatural 's Alastair effectively digs his own grave by revealing that he tortured the Hell out of Big Daddy Winchester for no less than a century. Luckily, demon-blood-fed Sam is able to give Al his comeuppance. (That said, Dean's bro really scares us now.) 8. Purrrrrfect Guest Star: House 's patients often seem to have nine lives, but this week a cat figures into a medical mystery. Can the feline actually foretell death? Nope. The critter just likes the withering patients' heated blankets. 7. Hostess With the Mostest... Room for Improvement: All that graceful choreography on Dancing with the Stars only highlights host Samantha Harris' verbal gaffes. We like the blunder-full beauty, but wish she would stop giving contestants "a modiment to catch their breath" - just one of her gaffes this week. Come on, you talk for a living. 6. Most Heavenly Reunion: Ghost Whisperer fans get the moment they've waited (too long) for when a drowning Sam realizes that he's Jim, Melinda's husband. It's a rare instance when water reignites an old flame. 5. Most Sheltered Country Star: Stunned by Adam Lambert's sitar-ized version of Johnny Cash's "Ring of Fire," plus the aspiring Idol's black hair, eyeliner and black nail polish, guest mentor Randy Travis doesn't know what to say: "For me, I don't see men wearing nail polish that often, so it sorta caught me off guard, but Adam seems like a very nice guy and again a great singer." Get with it, man. Cash covered Nine Inch Nails years ago. Lambert's routine isn't too new - it's too 1991. 4. Best Line: Battlestar's Admiral Adama tapes a red line down the middle of a launch deck and asks his entire fleet to make a choice: Head out on a possibly suicidal mission to save a little girl, or leave for safer ships. There's no guilt or judgments, just a line. And a stunning image of a ship divided. To Read More Click Here .
In case you haven't given our video Q&A with Kate Vernon a watch already, here it is again, timed to this week's series finale of Sci Fi Channel's Battlestar Galactica . After recapping for us how she came to learn that Ellen Tigh is the fifth Cylon, Vernon weighs in on the impact of that choice. Compared to making Gaeta or Dualla the missing link, she says the Ellen reveal "gave them a lot to play with." Vernon goes on to tease the big finale, saying, "I wouldn't have thought of this ending in any lifetime. ... It will forever leave fans, in their imagination, spinning their own stories." Battlestar launches its final, two-hour mission tonight at 9 pm/ET. To Read More Click Here .
