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 .

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

"Gilmore" Guy: Who is New Showrunner David Rosenthal?

A few days later and I am still processing the news that Gilmore Girls showrunner Amy Sherman-Palladino--and her exceptionally talented husband, writer and producer Daniel Palladino-- announced their departure from the whip-smart drama after six seasons. The news wouldn't be such a blow, save for the fact that Gilmore Girls is as much about Amy and Daniel as it is about Lorelai and Rory. In their capable hands, the show explored a supremely complicated family dynamic through the beautiful friendship of mother and daughter Lorelai and Rory... and did so with smart dialogue usually found in a Nick & Nora film rather than on television. Zany subplots abounded as did quirky, beloved supporting characters. And now, after six seasons (including this most recent--and very shaky--season where Amy and Daniel wrote less episodes than usual), Amy and Daniel are passing on the showrunning torch to... Dave Rosenthal?!? For those of you in the audience unfamiliar with David Rosenthal ,
