Top Moments: Lost Lets Go, 24 Moves On and Idol Says Goodbye

Season finales provided a lot of healthy closure this week, at least according to our shrink Mitzi Cohen-McGinty, Ph.D. She says that The Biggest Loser is not just about how we look on the outside. She praised Glee for showing us that there is no "right" when it comes to the relationship between a child and the mother who gave her up for adoption. She thinks Jack and Chloe are totally 24's most codependent coworkers, so it's good that they've decided to spend some time apart. And finally, according to Dr. Cohen-McGinty, Lost's season finale is just a metaphor for the journey to self-actualization that we all must take - except, you know, while we're still truckin' on this mortal coil - and preferably from the couch of her stately Upper West Side salon.

Michael Emerson teases 'Lost' epilogue

On yesterday's Attack of the Show, Michael Emerson said the complete-series Lost DVD crashing into your basement in August will contain a 12-minute bonus feature exploring what happened after Ben became second-in-command under Hurley's leadership. 'You could call it an epilogue, ' Emerson teased. 'It's self-contained, although it's a rich period in the show's mythology that's never been explored, so who knows what will come of it? ' Are they just gonna do this for ALL the unanswered Lost questions? I'd probably prefer that to a movie, to be honest. I'd also like a Six Feet Under-esque montage with quick hits of each character's death. What else do you want to see on the mega-DVD-set that will cost 4 8 15 16 23 42 dollars? Source & Video

Lost DVD Will Feature Bonus Hurley-Ben Scene

Lost may be off the air, but the story isn't over yet. Michael Emerson tells G4's Attack of the Show that a special feature on the DVD collection for the entire series will show an epilogue of what happened to Ben and Hurley (Jorge Garcia) once they took over island-protector duties from Jack (Matthew Fox). "For those people that want to pony up and buy the complete Lost series, there is a bonus feature, which is... you could call it an epilogue," Emerson said. "A lost scene. It's a lot. It's 12 or 14 minutes that opens a window onto that gap of unknown time between Hurley becoming number one and the end of the series. It's self-contained, although it's a rich period in the show's mythology that's never been explored, so who knows what will come of it." Lost: The Complete Collection hits stores on August 24.

ABC: Closing Credit Images Not Part of Lost Series Finale

Many Lost fans scratched their heads after Sunday's two-and-a-half-hour series finale, and not just because of that golden tunnel of light. After the final image of the series, a close-up of Jack's eye closing, the closing credits featured images of the Oceanic 815 wreckage on the beach and the sound of the waves lapping the shore. Many interpreted this final scene to mean that none of the castaways survived the plane crash that began the series, which would also mean that almost the entire series was not real. However, ABC issued a statement Tuesday clarifying that the images over the closing credits were not part of the narrative of the final episode. "The images shown during the end credits of the Lost finale, which included shots of Oceanic 815 on a deserted beach, were not part of the episode but were a visual aid to allow the viewer to decompress before heading into the news," it said. The news was first reported by The Los Angeles Times. With this burning question now answered, are you satisified with the Lost finale?

'Vampire Diaries' Star Nina Dobrev To Play Kellan Lutz's Wife In 'Deathgames'

Nina Dobrev played some serious death games in the finale to the CW’s “The Vampire Diaries," and it turns out that’s only the beginning. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Nina has just joined the cast of the indie action movie “Deathgames,” also starring Kellan Lutz and Samuel L. Jackson. The movie’s plot leads us to believe that this could be Nina’s goriest onscreen endeavor yet! “Deathgames” tells the story of Nina’s character’s husband (Kellan), a young man who is kidnapped and enslaved in a modern gladiator arena, in which men must battle to the death for entertainment via the Internet. Samuel plays the mastermind of the online gaming program who coordinates the fatal fights. Any other recognizable faces in the cast, you wonder? You will also recognize James Remar, who plays Dexter’s father in the Showtime series “Dexter" and was, ironically enough, Stefan and Damon's dad on "Vampire Diaries." Derek Mears, who is fresh off playing the infamous Jason Vorhees in “Friday the 13th,” continues his dark streak as Brutas Jackson. “Lost” star Daniel Dae Kim has joined the film’s cast after leaving The Island for good. So, regardless of whether you’re brave enough to watch “Deathgames,” Nina will certainly be in excellent company. Source: MTV

'Lost' finale ratings strong, not overwhelming

The series finale of Lost drew the show's best ratings in more than two years, but it didn't draw in a ton of viewers who weren't already watching. The heavily serialized nature of "Lost" probably kept away a fair number of people who had dropped out earlier in the show's run or hadn't seen the show before. (And although the finale focused most heavily on characters who had been with the show from early on, it still would have produced some head-scratchers for casual fans.) The 2 1/2-hour finale drew "Lost's" biggest audience since early in Season 4, averaging 13.5 million viewers and a 5.8 rating among adults 18-49 in the overnight ratings (its numbers will probably grow some when seven-day DVR numbers are figured in). It was also the show's highest-rated season finale since the Season 3 ender in 2007. By all measures "Lost" was Sunday's (May 23) highest-rated show, but it didn't draw a great deal more viewers than it normally does. For the season "Lost" is averaging 11.55 million viewers per episode (including seven-day DVR viewing) and a 5.1 in the 18-49 demographic, so the finale provided about a 15 percent bump in total viewers over a typical episode and a 12 percent improvement in the demo. In contrast, the "ER" finale last year (16.4 million viewers) improved by more than 40 percent over its prior season average of a little over 10 million viewers. It had been on the air for 15 years, however, and was less difficult for former viewers to pick up for the last episode. Source

Kendra's TV Hotspots of the Week: Lost Disappointment + TV Hope in Chuck, HIMYM, Glee & Parenthood

Welcome to a new week of TV! And now... it's the final week of TV finales! The only regular season show left to have its finale after this week is Glee , which will just barely tide us over until our fav summer shows start. So enjoy the week of thrilling finales, and don't forget to check our Summer TV Premieres Schedule to see when you can ease your TV sadness with awesome summer shows! Lost: The Final Disappointment I know everyone's just about all talked-out when it comes to the Lost series finale, but since I noted in last week's column how psyched I was for the finale, I thought I'd give a brief follow-up and declare I am among the disappointed. Yeah, yeah, I know it's impossible for a show so hyped up with its mysteries and reveals to have a satisfying ending, and I will say I liked most of the 2 1/2 hour episode, but I was super annoyed with the actual conclusion to the show. And... I still don't get it. I'd previously said that I'd be fine with the finale as long as it didn't end up with it being that they're all dead, and well, sure, the island events really happened, but to still have them all be dead and meeting up at the end? Here's my big sigh for the lack of inspiration behind that. I'll always love the journey of Lost, but I'm also going to remain the obnoxious, never-satisfied super fan because they made me that way! What did you think? Did you love it or hate it? Exciting Episodes of the Week I know a lot of you will be excited for finales I'm not into like 24 , Dancing with the Stars , and FlashForward , so don't forget to check out when they're all on here so you don't miss a thing! Chuck - This time it's the real deal - Chuck Season 3 finale! Since NBC had originally ordered 13 episodes for Chuck's 3rd season then ordered more, we already got the original season finale, and now we get another! While I feel like they floundered with the episodes after the original finale, last week's episode seemed to get back in stride and also definitely felt like a lead-up to a great finale. I'm very intrigued to see what will happen with Ellie now that she's gotten involved in the spy world, and also if we'll get any Chuck-Sarah developments or other cliffhangers. It's so nice to be able to enjoy it all with the knowledge that next season is a go! How I Met Your Mother - Baby Marsh-Lil?? Do they have a couple name or is it pointless when it basically just ends up being Marshall's name? Anyway about it, I'm excited to see how Marshall and Lily's secret pact to start trying to have a baby goes as I'm sure that'll be funny... until they really have a baby and there's the danger of them being the new lame Jim and Pam. But, since the finale's focused on them starting to try and also the possibility of finding Barney's doppelganger, it sounds like there's still plenty of funny! And it looks like there could be a hint of a cliffhanger from the episode summary's mention of Robin getting an offer for her dream job. Could we be left with the possibility of Robin moving away from the gang? Glee - Glee goes gaga! The only thing more exciting than NPH's guest star appearance last week was the promo for this week's Lady Gaga-themed episode (and the fact that we get 2 more Glee eps)! I'm a bit nervous because I felt like they overdid it with the excessive songs in the Madonna ep, but looks like there are less songs for this Gaga episode, so as long as there will be plenty of plot along with the fun music, I'm all about it! I'm also excited to see where they go next with the Rachel mom storyline - and while we're at it, can we actually meet her dads? Parenthood - This is one of those finales that's exciting because it's been a fantastic first season, but disappointing because it's been a fantastic first season and I'm not ready to let it go for the summer! This has been a surprise favorite for me out of the new freshman shows, and I'm really looking forward to seeing how all the family drama and love wraps up for its first chapter and gets us ready for the second. It's a show with one strong theme of family, hardships, and finding the humor in it all, so I'm interested to see if that'll just continue to be the focus for Season 2, or if some new angle will peek its head out in the finale.

Lost Star Jorge Garcia Pens Farewell To The Island

Sure, "Lost" has got take-charge Jack, beautiful Kate, smoldering Sawyer, badass Sayid and many more colorful characters that have spent time living (and often dying) on that mysterious island. Yet it'd be hard to argue that anyone but jolly Hugo "Hurley" Reyes is the show's fan favorite. He's a truth-teller, a voice of the fan at home, an honest do-gooder, a guy you just can't helping rooting for. So too has Jorge Garcia, who plays the teddy bear-like Hurley, become beloved amongst the zealous "Lost" fanbase. As the show hurtles toward its series finale on Sunday, Garcia penned an essay for Variety in which he reminisces about the casting process six seasons ago, shares memories of his time shooting in Hawaii and talks about filming the final episode. Here's an excerpt: "At 5 a.m. on April 24, I became unemployed," Garcia begins. "I just wrapped my six-season run on 'Lost.' The job that went above and beyond anything I could have imagined was over. ... "My last day on 'Lost' was also my longest: 20 hours. Without going into details, I can say the shoot was dangerous, physical and wet. But what could be more appropriate? How else could we end this epic show without an epic marathon night of shooting? At the end of it all we all remarked how we expected the end to be more emotional for us, but we were too tired to cry. Read more of this story @ MTV
