Entertainment behind the scenes
Sure, TV networks may already be looking ahead to the fall — they’re all gathered in New York this week unveiling next season’s line up to advertisers – but viewers are still anchored firmly in the present, waiting with bated breath to see how their favorite TV shows will leave them hanging through the summer — or, in some cases, permanently.
CW’s freshman breakout hit “The Vampire Diaries” was one of the first shows to wrap for the season last week with a heart-stopping finale that the New York Post’s PopWrap said set the bar “for which all other 2010 season finales will be judged.”
This week, season finales ramped up with more than a dozen dramas saying au revoir until the fall. Among those include “Desperate Housewives”, “Brothers and Sisters”, “House”, “Grey’s Anatomy” and “The Mentalist”.
But what a lot of fans are likely waiting for is the line up next week, when long-running hit shows “24″ and “Lost” both bid a final farewell with 2 hour finales.
Actress Leighton Meester, best known for her role as Blair Waldorf in the TV show “Gossip Girl,” has been named as FHM Online’s hottest star on TV this fall — while comedy “Kath and Kim” has topped its list of shows most likely to be axed.
The 22-year-old actress who was born in a Texas prison, beat Hayden Panettiere from “Heroes” and Madeline Zima from “Californication” for the title.
