Television's Dearly Departed, The 11 Saddest TV Deaths Of All Ti
For most viewers, mourning the death of a favorite television character can be almost as traumatic as mourning the death of a family member. Viewers become so close to these characters over time, that they become like family. Most times, a character death is one a fan sees coming due to illness or an episode-long situation. The deaths that are most difficult to take are those fans do not see coming. In the "spirit" of great television, we honor the dearly departed characters that never saw it coming...the 11 saddest television deaths of all time.

7 Awful TV Series Finales That Caused Fan Outrage
When How I Met Your Mother ended this past week after nine seasons, reaction among fans was somewhat mixed. Some fans said that Ted and Robin belonged together, just like other long-time TV couples like Ross and Rachel or Carrie and Big. But other fans resorted to throwing a tantrum on Twitter, saying the show essentially ended right back at square one, nine years later.

Whether you loved or hate the How I Met Your Mother finale, it just proves that we can all get a little too attached to our favorite shows sometimes. When the producers pull the rug out from under viewers in a much anticip...

Chloe Sevigny Worries Fashion-Forward Reputation Hinders Her Film Career

Chloe Sevigny
Chloe Sevigny fears her fashion-forward reputation has hindered her acting career - because movie bosses don't take her seriously.

The Big Love star took up an interest in high fashion during her teenage years and has landed a slew of modeling jobs, served as the spokesperson for French label Chloe and even designed a number of her own collections.

However, Sevigny admits her style obsession may have ruined her chances of becoming a real Oscar contender.

She tells Interview magazine, "I am worried that some of the choices I've made - and because people think of me as this fashion icon...

Can you solve crimes without ever leaving one building? That's the idea behind Endgame, a Canadian series that gets a second life on Hulu starting today.

In Endgame, veteran actor Shawn Doyle (Big Love, 24, Lie To Me) plays Russian chess champion Arkady Balagan, who's confined himself to a hotel after witnessing the murder of his fiancee.

TV Goodbye: Shows That Ended & Shows That Were Cancelled In 2011

Canceled and Ended Shows in 2011
Ask the typical American to name 20 currently airing primetime television shows and they probably can't without doing some serious thinking. They'd probably even ramble off a few that were cancelled during the year or the year before without even realizing it.

In 2011 a myriad of television shows come to an end with over 80 leaving the airwaves, most of which you probably never even heard of (some were so small we didn't even include them in this year-end roundup).

Some had tearful goodbyes after long runs (Oprah, Big Love, Rescue Me), and others were canceled so fast we hardly even knew ...

The "Big Love" star recently began dating Charlie Smith, who appeared on "The Hills" with Pratt, and the couple stepped out together earlier this month.

Big Love
Last night, HBO ended its series "Big Love" with a bang to say the least. For those of you that followed the show and haven't seen the series finale yet, (spoiler alert) the star and main character, Bill Henrickson, (played by Bill Paxton) was shot and killed by his neighbor. The word on the street is that it was a very fitting and a decent ending to the series. HBO has provided us with a behind the scenes reaction to the series conclusion.

Roush Review: 'Big Love' Finale

If HBO were to do a sequel to Big Love, it would have to be called something like The Three Sister-Wives. Not exactly Chekhov, but I'd probably watch. Barb, Margene and Nicki carrying on without Bill: That's already a home plus.

I had drifted a while ago from the flock of followers of this weird and lately quite preachy series about polygamy and family and faith, but did a marathon catch-up over the last week in time to watch the final chapter, which aimed for transcendence and at times achieved it. The hour-plus finale thankfully shucked much of the grotesque Utah-Mormon-Gothic melodrama ...

Chloe Sevigny
Chloe Sevigny is set to swap Big Love for axe murders by playing the notorious Lizzie Borden in a new miniseries.

Sevigny's stint in Big Love comes to an end this month when the polygamy drama wraps up its fifth and final season, and she's already lined up her next project.

The actress is set to tackle the title role in a new four-hour HBO miniseries based on the life of Borden, who became infamous back in 1893 when she was acquitted of the grisly murders of her father and step-mother.

Borden, the prime suspect in the crime, was set free after a sensational trial in which she was accu...

Chloe Sevigny attended the GO International Designer Collective launch earlier this week. Many say she's fashion forward, but we're not crazy about the leopard-print dress with bow tie. What do you think?

The "Big Love" star was recently linked to "Jersey Shore" star Pauly D after they were spotted at a New York Knicks basketball game together, but the rumors were shot down by her rep.

Her HBO co-star Ginnifer Goodwin recently said "Big Love" is helping to dispel the myth that multi-partner sex is a good thing. Goodwin is often thanked by complete strangers for helping to show the downsid...

Tom Brady has been sporting a little ponytail while hanging out with his wife Gisele Bunchen in Brazil. What's worse than the look? His dancing moves at Carnival! You can see him "getting down" in the video below.

Who is also sporting new 'dos? Kate Winslet debuted her new blonde pixie cut on the cover of Vogue - we think it's rocking!

Pete Wentz, on the other hand, looks like he got into a fight with a curling iron. He may be trying out some independance now that he's a single man, but the "fro with sideburns" look is not working out for him.

HBO's TV drama "Big Love" is helping to dispel the myth that multi-partner sex is a good thing, according to the show's star Ginnifer Goodwin.

The actress admits she's often thanked by complete strangers for helping to show randy husbands the downside of threesomes and foursomes.

Goodwin, who plays one of a polygamist's three wives on the show, says, "Women come up to me on the street a lot... They all say, 'Thank you so much... because my husband or boyfriend or lover wanted to bring additional women into the bedroom before we saw your show.'"

The new 'American Idol'
We’ve already been over what new shows are premiering mid-season. There are lots of returning favorites as well, and some promise to be some of this year’s highest-rated programs. Others are sure to be stinkers. Here’s our guide to what’s returning, and what’s worth watching.

Chloe Sevigny spent the first Sunday of the new year lounging at Miami beach, soaking up the sun with friends.

The "Big Love" actress showed off her beach body in a two piece bikini as she swam in the ocean and relaxed on a lounge chair.

Chloe told the January issue of Playboy what she likes in men: "I want a guy who is masculine, good with his hands, and able to build stuff and who has survival skills. Facial hair is a big turn-on...I like a stronger, more physically imposing man – like a lumberjack."

But that's not all. She confessed, "I'm into a little hair pulling. I like boys...

No More Nude Scenes For Chloe Sevigny

Chloe Sevigny
Actress Chloe Sevigny has pledged to stop flashing her flesh in movies - because she's been a part of too many "explicit sex scenes."

The Boys Don't Cry star, who once performed oral sex on then-boyfriend Vincent Gallo in the movie The Brown Bunny, insists she's no longer interested in stripping for provocative movies and has signed a no-nudity clause in an effort to keep her clothes on in the future.

She says, "I'm more self-aware now and wouldn't be able to be as free, so why even do it (bare all)?" And she has already clashed with directors on the set of her hit TV drama Big Love.

Chloe Sevigny told the January issue of Playboy what she likes in men: "I want a guy who is masculine, good with his hands, and able to build stuff and who has survival skills. Facial hair is a big turn-on...I like a stronger, more physically imposing man – like a lumberjack."

But that's not all. She confessed, "I'm into a little hair pulling. I like boys to be aggressive and allow me to be a little aggressive back."

Chloe stars in the upcoming film "The Wait" about two sisters who decide to keep their deceased mother in their home after being informed that she will come back to life. ...

The 32-year-old explained, "I have been a member of Weight Watchers for 23 years, and I’m back on it right now. It’s the only thing on the planet that doesn’t dehydrate you or just make you miserable.

"I’ve never had a dramatic weight problem, it’s just that I tend to indulge, and then I need to get back on track so I can button my pants."

Hit drama Big Love is to wrap next spring after one final season on cable TV.

The acclaimed series, about a polygamous Mormon family in Utah and starring Bill Paxton and Chloe Sevigny, will return for its final episodes on January 16th.

Announcing the news, series co-creator Will Scheffer says, "When we created Big Love in 2002, we had a strong conception of the journey the Henrickson family would make over the course of the series, of the story we had to tell."

Patrick Fabian
Actor Patrick Fabian has some "Big Love" in his life - he is a first-time dad. The TV star and his wife Mandy Steckelberg welcomed daughter Abbey Ray into the world on Wednesday.

The "Big Love" star and his wife picked the name because they're both huge Beatles fans and love the Fab Four's "Abbey Road" album.

Fabian is awestruck after witnessing his partner go through the wonders of labor. He tells, "Being a father for the first time is fantastic. My love and admiration for what women can do has gone up 1,000 per cent."

Chloe Sevigny Is An Animal

Chloe Sevigny
Chloe Sevigny went to HBO's Post Award Reception for the Emmy Awards wearing a short, leopard print dress. Sometimes a star wears the dress, but in this case the dress is wearing the star. And we don't like that Chloe matched her lipstick to her clutch.

Chloe made headlines earlier this year for blasting the latest season of her show "Big Love." She was reported as saying, "It was awful this season, as far as I'm concerned. I'm not allowed to say that!...I feel like it kind of got away from itself..."

The actress moved quickly to play down her remarks, blaming the media for blowing the si...

Amanda Seyfried
Amanda Seyfried showed up black and blue at the London premiere of "Dear John" yesterday. Despite the rain, she and co-star Channing Tatum were all smiles on the red carpet.

Seyfried is multi-talended: she wrote a song that appeared on the film's soundtrack. She told Britain's Glamour magazine, "It was a happy accident. The director asked me to bring my guitar on set and I ended up singing a song that I'd written, which ended up on the soundtrack. Writing songs is a stress-buster for me."

The "Big Love" star has also been promoting her film "Chloe," which features steamy scenes with bo...

Big Love
Chloe Sevigny has apologized for blasting the latest season of her TV drama Big Love as "awful", insisting her comments were misinterpreted.

The star, who plays a fundamentalist Mormon wife in the hit series, risked the wrath of TV bosses when she appeared to take aim at the show's writers.

Actress Chloe Sevigny is facing the wrath of TV executives - she's branded the latest season of her show Big Love "awful".

The star plays a fundamentalist Mormon wife in the series, which is now in its fourth season, but she was disappointed with the writing on the latest episodes. And after opening up about her thoughts on the show, Sevigny is scared bosses at HBO will reprimand her for her scathing comments.

She says, "It was awful this season, as far as I'm concerned. I'm not allowed to say that! It was very telenovela. I feel like it kind of got away from itself. The whole political...

Amanda Seyfried
"My boobs hang pretty low. I might get a little breast lift. Maybe in my thirties or forties." Amanda Seyfried is planning breast-enhancement surgery in the future.

The "Big Love" and "Dear John" star, who showcased her musical ability in movie-musical "Mamma Mia!," has long harbored dreams of becoming a singer/songwriter. She was delighted when Lasse Hallstrom, the director of "Dear John," asked her to bring her guitar on set to write a song for the film.

Amanda Seyfried arrived at the world premiere of "Dear John" in Hollywood yesterday wearing Tinseltown's latest trend: an extremely low cut dress revealing quite a bit of cleavage. The blue and silver dress looks like a pillow case split down the middle to, ahem, enhance the view of the "pillows." See lots more photos after the jump!

The "Big Love" star decided to quit the HBO series because she felt producers weren't maximizing her potential. Seyfried admits she made the decision so she can focus on landing more film roles that will allow her to show off her talents. She told Ok! Magazi...
