Saying Goodbye To 'Psych' With Maggie Lawson
Break out your Kleenex and your pineapples - tonight we say goodbye to USA's Psych. And we're doing it the best way possible. Last week BFTV connected with the show's leading lady - and one of our oldest and dearest site friends - Maggie Lawson, to talk about sending off her character Juliet O'Hara and what she's learned from eight seasons of hilarious goodness.

In today's TV landscape, it's uncommon for a show to last this long, let alone for an actor to stay with a series for its entire run. What was it like for Maggie to complete the journey from start to finish? "I feel really lucky th...

An Open Farewell To 'Killer Women'

An Open Farewell To 'Killer Women'
Dear Killer Women,

So tonight is your season finale. According to popular opinion, it's also your series finale. We're not giving up on you, but just in case we don't see you again, we wanted to let you know that we've enjoyed these last seven weeks.

Sure, you're not perfect. There are things that you could've done better. And the comparisons to Justified didn't help, especially when you were going up against that amazing show. But we think you kind of got a bum rap, being written off so early. So here's our attempt to add one last point in the other direction.

Thank you for all these th...

'Nikita' Series Finale Recap: 'Canceled'

December 29th, 2013 8:42am EST
Nikita
The end is here. Nikita's series finale is upon us, appropriately titled 'Canceled.' It's a good moniker for so many reasons: because it's the last episode of the show; because within the series, that word is used to mean 'killed,' and death is a big part of this plot; and because now it's understandable why this is Nikita's swan song.

Continuing the idea of going back to the beginning that started with the last scene of 'Bubble', this episode opens with a flashback to Nikita's early days at Division, with Amanda giving her a lecture on how "brute force will never be as effective as decept...

4 Things We Learned From 4 Seasons Of 'Nikita'

December 27th, 2013 2:01pm EST
Nikita
Tonight, The CW's Nikita will sign off for good, and that makes us a little sad. Having covered this series from beginning to end, we've gotten to see it go from 'remake we're not so sure about' to 'that sleeper show more people should be watching.' And we've learned a few things, too. Here are our four takeaways from the four seasons of Nikita - feel free to leave yours in the comments as we prepare to say goodbye.

1) Remakes don't always have to be mistakes: Granted, there have been many which were short-lived or outright bad (see: NBC's Knight Rider and Bionic Woman, ABC's Charlie's Ang...

Alec Baldwin
MSNBC and Alec Baldwin are parting ways two weeks after it was announced his show Up Late was suspended.

MSNBC suspended the talk show following the release of a video clip featuring Baldwin apparently calling a photographer a "c--k sucking f-g." Baldwin claims he called the photographer a "fathead" and suggested he did not know the term "c--k sucking" was offensive to gays.

Baldwin tweeted following the release of the video, "Acoustic analysis proves the word is fathead. Anti-gay slurs are wrong. They not only offend, but threaten hard fought tolerance of LGBT rights."

He posted later, ...

No Happy Endings For Jennifer Love Hewitt As Lifetime Cancels 'The Client List'

November 2nd, 2013 12:10am EDT
The Client List
There will be no happy ending for Jennifer Love Hewitt's Lifetime series The Client List.

Producers of the series announced the show's cancellation on Friday after two seasons, choosing to end the series because of low ratings and a delay of a potential third season over creative differences with Hewitt.

Deadline.com reported in June that Lifetime and Sony Pictures Television were at a stand-still during negotiations with Hewitt, after the actress pushed for her pregnancy and co-star Brian Hallisay -- her fiance in real life -- to be written into the show's storyline.

Hewitt, an executiv...

2013 Fall TV Season: What Will Be The Second Cancellation?

October 8th, 2013 6:00pm EDT
Ironside
NBC- The Voice is still doing good numbers on Monday/Tuesday. The Blacklist is winning its timeslot, and was the first show (technically) to be rewarded with a back-nine pickup. Chicago Fire is also doing solid numbers on Tuesday. Revolution needs to regain some audience members if it wants a second season. With the success of The Blacklist, and Chicago Fire doing OK, Revolution is looking to be one of NBC’s weaker points right now. I can’t see it not running the full second season, but it might not get a third. Also, Ironside is definitely going to get cancelled. The premiere was so low, a...

ABC's 'Lucky 7' Canceled After Just Two Episodes

October 5th, 2013 8:14pm EDT
Lucky 7
"Lucky 7" isn't so lucky after all. The TV series has been axed by ABC after just two weeks on air.
 
Poor ratings led network bosses to cancel the show, which featured a group of convenience store workers who win the lottery. It was based on the BBC program "The Syndicate."
 
The cancellation comes on the heels of actress Dana Delaney warning to network bosses that they would regret canceling her crime drama "Body of Evidence" to make room for "Lucky 7."
 
She recently told The Huffington Post, "I feel like we had three strong seasons. I would just like to mention that the show (Lucky 7) t...
