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.

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 .

BuzzFeed: Meet The TV Successor To "Serial"

HBO's stranger-than-fiction true crime documentary The Jinx   — about real estate heir Robert Durst — brings the chills and thrills missing since Serial   wrapped up its first season. Serial   obsessives: HBO's latest documentary series is exactly what you've been waiting for.   The Jinx: The Life and Deaths of Robert Durst , like Sarah Koenig's beloved podcast, sifts through old documents, finds new leads from fresh interviews, and seeks to determine just what happened on a fateful day in which the most foul murder was committed. And, also like  Serial  before it,  The Jinx may also hold no ultimate answer to innocence or guilt. But that seems almost beside the point; such investigations often remain murky and unclear, and guilt is not so easy a thing to be judged. Instead, this upcoming six-part tantalizing murder mystery, from director Andrew Jarecki ( Capturing the Friedmans ), is a gripping true crime story that unfolds with all of the speed of a page-turner; it

BBC Culture: Matthew Weiner: Mad Men’s creator on its final episodes

The creative force behind the period drama talks about where his characters are as his show begins its final episodes. “We left off with everyone’s material needs being met in an extreme way,” says Mad Men creator Matthew Weiner of where we last saw the characters on his critically acclaimed period drama when the show went on hiatus 10 months ago. “Then the issue is, what else is there?” That is the central question with the return to US TV of the AMC hit, one demanding to be answered by both the show’s characters, and its creator whose success is the envy of the television industry. Mad Men has been a defining part of Weiner’s life for the last 15 years. He wrote the pilot script on spec while he was a staff writer on CBS’ Ted Danson sitcom Becker in 1999, using it to land a writing gig on HBO’s The Sopranos in 2002. It would take another five years, filled with multiple rejections, before the first episode of Mad Men would make it on the air. Someone with less determination or vision
