Tune-In Reminder: "True Blood" Season Finale (and Alan Ball!)

Just a quick reminder to be sure to tune in Sunday night for the second season finale of HBO's True Blood.

Be sure to come back here Monday morning to discuss the episode in detail. I'll also be chatting one-on-one with True Blood writer/executive producer Alan Ball that morning, so if you have any burning questions about the second season or the season finale specifically, be sure to email me or leave a comment here.

Here's how HBO described the season finale ("Beyond Here Lies Nothin'"): Maryann prepares for her ultimate sacrifice, forcing Sookie to be the Maid of Honor at her bloody nuptials; Sophie-Anne warns Eric to control Bill's inquisitiveness; Jason leads Andy into battle; Hoyt struggles with Maxine's endless stream of insults; Sam places his trust, and his life, in a most unlikely ally in order to save Bon Temps and Sookie. (And it also happens to feature a cameo from True Blood author Charlaine Harris, to boot!)

Below you can catch the promo for Sunday night's season finale as well as the gorgeous Depeche Mode music video for "Corrupted," featuring the cast of True Blood.

My question for Alan Ball is this:

Since the series is based (loosely) on the books and there are now around 10 books, how does Ball plan to incorporate the events of the books into the series? If the series ends before the books end, does Ball leave the series differently than Charlane Harris would leave it?

I can't wait for the finale! It's been two very long weeks!

1. Is Alan happy with making the Maryann story such a major part of the season since many people thought it went on way too long to remain interesting.

2. Is there a reason he is being black and white about Bill and Eric as opposed to giving both of them many colors. Bill get's Eric's heroic deeds and tattles on Eric, and leaving out Eric's sense of humor and making him much more nefariously manipulative where Sookie is concerned.

3.I read you think Alex looks better with short hair but now he just looks like a GQ model, as opposed to a viking w/sexy long blond locks. It's part of Eric's mystique. Would you ever consider finding better wigs than the ones he had in Season 1? I know they're out there. Broadway wig stylists make great wigs all the time.

Will Alcide be a major character in season three?

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 .

Have a Burning Question for Team Darlton, Matthew Fox, Evangeline Lilly, or Michael Emerson?

Lost fans: you don't have to make your way to the island via Ajira Airways in order to ask a question of the creative team or the series' stars. Televisionary is taking questions from fans to put to Lost 's executive producers/showrunners Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse and stars Matthew Fox ("Jack Shephard"), Evangeline Lilly ("Kate Austen"), and Michael Emerson ("Benjamin Linus") for a series of on-camera interviews taking place this weekend. If you have a specific question for any of the above producers or actors from Lost , please leave it in the comments section below . I'll be accepting questions until midnight PT tonight and, while I can't promise I'll be able to ask any specific inquiry due to the brevity of these on-camera interviews, I am looking for some insightful and thought-provoking questions to add to the mix. So who knows: your burning question might get asked after all.

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
