HBO Says I Do to Another Season of "Big Love"

The pay cabler may have moved Big Love to Monday nights this season, but that doesn't mean there isn't more than enough love for the drama to go around.

HBO has renewed Big Love for a third season, which will launch in 2008. Series, which stars Bill Paxton, Jeanne Tripplehorn, Chloe Sevigny, and Ginnifer Goodwin as a polygamist family hiding out in the suburbs of Utah, will begin filming in November.

Writing on the third season begins this month, to ensure that Season Three of Big Love is completed and ready to air in case of a labor stoppage in June.

Meanwhile, it's possible that Big Love could move back to Sunday nights, at least once John From Cincinnati completes its run; series was originally intended to air on Sunday nights at 8 pm, but HBO shunted the series to Mondays at the last second.

Given the creative strength of this season, I'm just happy that HBO has decided to look at the overall viewers for each of Big Love's episodes over the course of six days and given it another season. I would have been crushed if this season was the end of the road for the Henrickson clan.

Hooray!
This is excellent news! I've been a fan of the show since the beginning but this season has been particularly spectacular and I can't wait for a third season with the Henriksons! And hopefully more people will take note of what I believe is one of the best dramas on television.

This is really good news. The series has been fantastic this season and I think it just keeps getting better and better.

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 .

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.
