TV Junkie: Lost...
Our friend Joel McHale will be on "Late Night With Jimmy Fallon" tonight! [Photo of Joel at the 2010 PaleyFest "Community" night by Thomas Attila Lewis]
"Lost" Spoiler Alert: We could write about "Lost" all day, every day and not come close to the amount of theories the uber-pundit megafans seem to spew 24/7 so we won't even try to compete but last night can't pass without us saying something about it: holy shit.Is it good news or not that the "Lost" series finale will now run from 9-11:30pm on May 23rd? Does this extension mean that we will "lose" everyone? At this point, we just want to survive the rest of the week to see our friend Betty White hosting "SNL" on Saturday.
Veteran actress Debra Winger will be joining what is now the 2nd most depressing show on television, HBO's "In Treatment". She'll be playing patient to Gabriel Byrne's psychotherapist in th upcoming season.
Late night TV is pretty awesome tonight, check out Letterman and Fallon in particular.
