After being largely ignored at the Emmys, HBO's vampire drama "True Blood" has landed a nomination for the Producers Guild of America awards. In the Norman Felton producer of the year category for drama series, "Blood" faces awards juggernaut "Mad Men" and three other best series Emmy nominees: ABC's "Lost," AMC's "Breaking Bad" and Showtime's "Dexter." In the Danny Thomas producer of the year comedy series category, another dominant awards player, NBC's "30 Rock," is nominated alongside NBC's "The Office," Showtime's "Californication" and "Weeds" and HBO's "Entourage." CBS' veteran newsmagazine "60 Minutes" leads the pack in the nonfiction TV category, joined by four unscripted series: Discovery Channel's "Deadliest Catch," A&E TV's "Intervention," Bravo's "Kathy Griffin: My Life on the 'D' List" and Showtime's "This American Life." The fourth series category for the 21st PGA Awards, announced Monday, is a head-scratcher. Called "live entertainment and competition TV," the category features four reality series: CBS' Emmy-winning "The Amazing Race," Fox's "American Idol," Lifetime's "Project Runway" and Bravo's "Top Chef," as well as Comedy Central's news satire "The Colbert Report." The winners will be announced at the PGA Awards ceremony on January 24 at the Hollywood Palladium. Source
Dexter's worst fears have been realized. Because of Debra's unrelenting pursuit, Miami Metro is just one step away from discovering the identity of the Trinity Killer. And Dexter can't let that happen. Arthur's arrest would not only deprive Dexter of a satisfying kill, it would also expose the secret life Dexter's been leading in his pursuit of this monster. Dexter must take drastic action to buy himself time to deal with Trinity in his own fashion. Meanwhile, Rita decides to confide in Dexter, which doesn't go as well as she'd hoped. LaGuerta and Batista's breach of ethics paints them into a very tight corner. And Arthur, who still can't understand why Dexter didn't simply turn him in, begins his own bloody investigation into Kyle Butler. "Dexter" airs the episode before the season finale on Sunday, December 6. Two clips have been released, one covering the phone conversation between Trinity and Dexter in which Dexter asks for money, and the other focusing on the interrogation of Christine. Source Here
Wait, what? Thanksgiving is supposed to be all about football and Twilight Zone marathons. But this week we're lucky enough to fill our Coolest Moments (aka Top Moments) with a strong slate of scripted scenes - and one off-the-cuff disclosure that could have stayed, you know, on the cuff. Also: Animals got some payback for all their buddies who got eaten this week. (You go, Miss Piggy.) Welcome to Coolest Moments, Thanksgiving edition. 10. Best Fight: Sons of Anarchy goes the bare-knuckle route as Jax, Clay and eight other members of SAMCRO go toe-to-toe, no-weapons, with A.J. Weston's band of shaved-head white supremacists in an old fashion rumble. The crunchy, bloody and testosterone-filled ten-on-ten releases a season's worth of tension. (And it's the only thing that could top Tara slugging a hospital administrator who tried to threaten her career.) 9. Best Collaboration: Everyone plays his or her small, glorious part to make "What Up With That?" the funniest sketch on the otherwise-slumping Saturday Night Live. Kenan Thompson commits completely to the show's constantly interjected theme song, Jason Sudeikis kills it as a goofy breakdancer, and Fred Armisen nails smoothed-out, just-happy-to-be-here sax man. Rounding out the many, many choruses are two backup singers, a gospel choir, Andy Samberg (we think) as an aggressive rainbow-wigged dancer, Bobby Moynihan as a tap-dancing Jake "The Snake" Roberts, and Joseph Gordon-Levitt as a singer from the future. Its all held together by the perfect deadpan of Mindy Kaling as herself, Bill Hader as a not-mad Lindsey Buckingham, and, most ridiculously of all, Al Gore - who gets maybe the biggest laugh of the skit just by silently mouthing, "what?" at the chaos all around him. Oooooooh-weeeeeeee. 8. Most Stand-Up Guy: After Smallville's Clark & co. see a glimpse of a desolate future in which General Zod has destroyed much of the Earth and enslaved the "filthy" humans, the man of steel decides to befriend Major Zod and try to avert the badness. In an interesting turn of events, the Kandorian leader asks his minions to "kneel before Kal-El" - though he, conspicuously, does not. 7. Best Comeback: While Adam Lambert simulating oral sex created a stir at the American Music Awards, it was Whitney Houston's performance that brought the audience to its feet. She wowed the crowd with her stirring anthem "I Didn't Know My Own Strength." The singer, whose marriage to Bobby Brown filled volumes of tabloids, paused during her song - either to relish the moment of her full-throated performance or recover from a wave of emotion. 6. Coolest Kicker: You sure can't accuse V of delivering all the drama up front. The closing moments of its final episode dropped a series of bombs: Val discovers she's pregnant with Visitor-in-disguise Ryan's baby, Father Jack is stabbed, and Erica finds out her son is aboard the mothership. All this is overshadowed, however, by the sight of hundreds of Visitor spaceships heading towards Earth. More Visitors are coming! To Read More Click Here .
Another vampire is coming to Mystic Falls. James Remar, who is perhaps best known as Richard, the on-off tycoon boyfriend of Kim Cattrall's character in Sex and the City , as well as serial killer Dexter Morgan's father Harry on Showtime 's Dexter , has joined the cast of Vampire Diaries to spice up the drama in the key role of Giuseppe Salvatore, Stefan and Damon's father. Remar is expected to start filming his scenes early next month. "He's an aristocrat in the 1860's of Italian decent," Remar told TV Guide Magazine. "It's the Civil War Era and it's about how he relates to his boys." Since there's probably tons of back-story to uncover, expect to see Remar on more than one episode of The Vampire Diaries when the show returns in January. This is certainly good news for Remar, who appears to be busy with TV gigs even as the fourth season of Dexter is about to wrap up. He'll play a significant role in Dexter's bloody fourth season finale on December 13, and on the same night, he'll also appear as a father mourning a child in Lifetime Movie Network's original holiday tearjerker, The Christmas Hope. Last but not the least, he'll guest-star on crime procedural drama. "I'm filming an episode of Numbers now as a billionaire arms dealer who doesn't seem to care much about the weapons he sells," Remar revealed. Source Here

When it comes to love, Dexter's Maria LaGuerta can't seem to catch a break. First, her ex-lover was killed in Season 2, then another old flame turned out to be a murderer in Season 3. And now that she's finally found love with Sgt. Batista, she's unable to be with him with him because the boss won't allow their interoffice relationship. We caught up Lauren Velez, who plays the high-powered lieutenant, to get her take on the forbidden romance, which serial killer storyline has been her favorite and hints on who shot Deb.

There were a lot of surprises on TV this week. We learned that The Chief is a secret drinker who has fallen off the wagon on Grey's Anatomy . Dexter killed an innocent man. On 90210, Jackie threw Silver the birthday party of a lifetime - and then gave her a surprise of a different sort. And Glee 's Sue Sylvester made us see something deeper about the emotional terrorist in a track suit. Welcome to Top Moments: Surprise Party Edition. 12. Worst Walkout: During a Larry King Live interview, former Miss California USA Carrie Prejean told King he was being inappropriate when he asked why, if religious freedom is so important to her, did she settle her lawsuit against the pageant? When King moved on to a take a call from a gay viewer who asked about her stance on same-sex marriage, Prejean took off her mic and said she was going to walk off. But she had a new book to plug (Google it), so she wasn't going anywhere. Way to take a stance, Carrie! 11. Most Sobering Moment: Grey's Anatomy finally gets to the bottom of what's been eating at the Chief. At the end of an episode in which he botches a routine surgery and Adele accuses him of being unfaithful again, we learn that the Chief's mistress actually comes in a bottle. Someone alert Joe the bartender, the Chief is off the wagon. 10. Best Lie: On House , the cranky doc wants to prove to Cuddy that he's reliable by offering to babysit. Cuddy lies and says she brought the baby to day care, but as House leaves, he hears baby noises coming from the other room. Busted! House enters to find Lucas - his former P.I. - watching the baby. 9. Best Way to Get Fired: After learning that the Brits are planning to sell Sterling Cooper, Don begs Lane Pryce to fire him, Roger and Bert so they can break their contracts and go out on their own. In exchange, they make Lane a partner in their new firm. This sets into motion a caper-like plot that re-energizes Mad Men , as Don & Co. recruit a skeleton crew to steal and move their client files over to the new headquarters of Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce. Very good; happy Christmas! 8. Biggest Tear Jerk: At Khloe Kardashian and L.A. Laker Lamar Odom's rehearsal dinner, which was broadcast on E!'s Keeping Up with the Karsdashians: The Wedding, Bruce Jenner, Khloe's stepfather, gave a surprisingly sincere, moving speech that honored Robert Kardashian, Khloe's late father. 7. Best Mistake: On Dexter , our favorite serial killer offs a man who he believes murdered a model. But he second-guesses himself when police arrest the man's assistant for the same crime. For the first time, Dexter has broken his code and killed an innocent man. He's just like any other murderer now. 6. F for Effort Award: Is Heroes even trying anymore? In a Fight Club-like twist, Matt Parkman throws himself in front of a hail of gunfire, making the ultimate sacrifice to rid the world of Sylar. It's a sad moment, as the episode ends with Parkman in pretty rough shape. It would be quite a cliff-hanger... if the previews for next week didn't then show Peter healing Matt. Add "suspense" to the list of things the show has given up on. (See also: credibility, continuity, excitement, ratings.) To Read More Click Here .
