Skull and Bones: New Eps of "Bones" in April; Sneak Peek of "Sarah Connor"

Bad news for fans of FOX's forensic drama Bones.

No, before the letter-writing campaigns begin (complete with massive mountains of Paul Smith striped socks being sent to FOX executives, no doubt), the series hasn't been canceled... but fans of the drama, currently in its third season, will have to wait quite a while for new episodes.

FOX has once again tweaked its midseason schedule and announced that, in addition to a berth on Friday evenings, Bones will pop up on the Monday night lineup at 8 pm, beginning in April.

While the above is hardly reason for concern, it's the fact that FOX is pushing the remaining four produced episodes of Bones, which were meant to air during February sweeps, to April 28th.

Which means that anyone waiting for another fix of Brennan and Booth is going to have to cool their heels for quite some time. It also means that FOX is dead serious about digging their heels in for the long term, preparing for the eventuality that the strike will not end in time to get the 2007-08 season back on track...

In other FOX programming news, Terminator fans can get a sneak peek at the pilot for Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles, starring Lena Headey, Thomas Dekker, Summer Glau, and Richard T Jones over at Yahoo, beginning tonight at 9 pm PT/midnight ET.

Personally, I was let down by the pilot when I saw it in early May, so I am curious to see if there have been any significant changes since then... But I will admit that I am curious to see how they manage to replace Owain Yeoman (The Nine) with Garret Dillahunt (No Country for Old Men) after the pilot episode...

I'm surprised that they replaced Owain Yeoman as I thought he did a fine job in the version of the pilot I saw. Lena Headey was the one who I wasn't really sold on. She's a solid actress but this role just doesn't quite seem to fit her.

Garret Dillahunt? I was already planning on watching the show, but SIGN ME UP for sure now. He is one of my favorite working actors that no one has ever heard of, and always brings something interesting to the roles he plays.

I have to echo bella spruce in thinking the replacement is strange, though, since I thought Owain Yeoman did well in the pilot.

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
