FOX's "Vanished" Vanishes... For Real, This Time

Just in time for the end of November sweeps, FOX has cancelled struggling drama Vanished, just a day after announcing that Vanished would take a breather for the rest of sweeps. (Make up your mind, guys.)

The Gale Harold-led--oops, scratch that--the Eddie Cibrian-led serialized drama had been airing Friday nights at 8 pm and had only four episodes left to air from its original 13 episode order. (Producers had been told in advance that they would not be getting a back nine order and were told to resolve the storyline.)

The few lingering fans that remain of the series can catch the missing episodes on Vanished's MySpace page, where FOX will begin streaming the remaining installments on November 17th. Subsequent episodes will appear each Friday, with three episodes available at any given time. The series finale of Vanished will be released online on December 8th and then, well, vanish forever.

Meanwhile fellow, Vanished's timeslot will be taken over by fellow struggling freshman drama Justice, beginning December 1st, though the days for that series are definitely numbered. FOX neglected to give Justice any additional episode orders, instead bequeathing that privilege to fellow froshers 'Til Death and Standoff. Comedy 'Til Death received a full season order, while hostage negotiator drama Standoff received an additional order of six episodes, bringing its total this season to 19 episodes.

It was so good, and quite possibly the best show I've seen in a really, really, really, long time.

What's Done is Done: The Eternal Struggle Between Good and Evil on the Season Finale of "Lost"

Every story begins with thread. It's up to the storyteller to determine just how much they need to parcel out, what pattern they're making, and when to cut it short and tie it off. With last night's penultimate season finale of Lost ("The Incident, Parts One and Two"), written by Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse, we began to see the pattern that Lindelof and Cuse have been designing towards the last five seasons of this serpentine series. And it was only fitting that the two-hour finale, which pushes us on the road to the final season of Lost , should begin with thread, a loom, and a tapestry. Would Jack follow through on his plan to detonate the island and therefore reset their lives aboard Oceanic Flight 815 ? Why did Locke want to kill Jacob? What caused The Incident? What was in the box and just what lies in the shadow of the statue? We got the answers to these in a two-hour season finale that didn't quite pack the same emotional wallop of previous seas

Katie Lee Packs Her Knives: Breaking News from Bravo's "Top Chef"

The android has left the building. Or the test kitchen, anyway. Top Chef 's robotic host Katie Lee Joel, the veritable "Uptown Girl" herself (pictured at left), will NOT be sticking around for a second course of Bravo's hit culinary competition. According to a well-placed insider, Joel will "not be returning" to the show. No reason for her departure was cited. Unfortunately, the perfect replacement for Joel, Top Chef judge and professional chef Tom Colicchio, will not be taking over as the reality series' host (damn!). Instead, the show's producers are currently scouring to find a replacement for Joel. Top Chef 's second season was announced by Bravo last month, but no return date has been set for the series' ten-episode sophomore season. Stay tuned as this story develops. UPDATE (6/27): Bravo has now confirmed the above story .

Me Want Food: Jenna Gets Famously Fat on "30 Rock"

I don't know about you, but I've already ordered my "Me Want Food" t-shirt from the NBC store. Last night's episode of 30 Rock ("Jack Gets in the Game") was, in my opinion, one of the strongest of the series and has officially pushed the zany comedy into the realm of Arrested Development : deftly plotted and intricately layered, with so many jokes piled atop of jokes that it requires several viewings in order to catch them all. While at its heart, 30 Rock is a workplace comedy, it's left that narrow pigeonhole behind to become a witty example of how intelligent and taut humor can work (and flourish) on television... and exist in harmony with hilarious throwaways like the Thriller -inspired Werewolf Bar Mitzvah music video that would have done the AD crew proud. I want Will Arnett to appear on this series whenever possible. His gay exec Devin is hilarious, manipulative, and has an inexplicable weakness for Kenneth the Page, but he claims to have
