Will Sunday's season finale mark the end of Dexter's budding relationship with Lumen? Find out at 9pm on Showtime

Last night's fantastic double header season finale of "The League" on FX made it difficult to determine which episode was better. We won't give anything away as some people still haven't watched it on their DVRs yet. One thing that concerns us is that FX hasn't renewed the series yet. Give FX a nudge by dropping a note to and demand that they renew "The League" as soon as possible. In other "League"-related news, Paul Scheer (Andre) will be starting a podcast next week called "How Did This Get Made?" where he and a panel take apart a bad movie bit-by-bit. First movie on the chopping block is: Burlesque. Nick Kroll (Ruxin) was also part of an hour-long podcast at Maximum Fun's "Jordan, Jesse, Go!" that had some very funny moments. Again, drop an email to renew "The League" today.
Sunday features the season finale of "Dexter" on Showtime at 9pm and we have to commend the showrunners for recovering momentum and direction about 4 weeks ago. [Spoiler Alert] We understand that there needed to be some recovery from Rita's death for Dexter, resetting the direction of his character, to see if he would be getting back into stride. Some fans decried the appearance of Julia Stiles' Lumen and were horrified at the new team and relationship she formed with Dexter. All that appears to be in jeopardy as we head into Sunday's episode so maybe the Lumen-haters will get what they want after all.
