TVLine Items: 'Lost' Lost Scene Revealed, NCIS Nabs Lily Tomlin, Plus a Vampire Diaries Tease
Lost bosses Carlton Cuse (arriving in full Imperial Stormtrooper regalia) and Damon Lindelof served up quite a treat at Entertainment Weekly‘s “Totally Lost: One Year Later” San Diego Comic-Con event on Friday. After some to-and-fro over whether to let some “never seen” Lost footage see the light of day, the duo agreed to show the crowd an edit of the Season 1 finale that they didn’t use, for fear that it revealed too much about how the series would eventually end.
Featuring cameos by Jacob and the Man in Black, the clip can be seen here:

* NCIS has enlisted Lily “One ringy-dingy” Tomlin to play McGee’s grandmother, Penelope, during an episode of Season 9, which opens Sept. 20. “[D]on’t let the word grandmother fool you,” show boss Gary Glasberg told EW.com. “Penelope is sharp as a tack and we’re about to learn some things about McGee’s family that have never been revealed.”
* The CW has released this Season 3 teaser promo for The Vampire Diaries. Though merely an assembly of old clips, it still may get your blood pumping — which Damon kinda likes. (Stay tuned to TVLine today, for much more Vampire Diaries scoop from Comic-Con!)
* Donny Osmond has been tapped to host Secret Fortune, a game show pilot for CBS, per The Hollywood Reporter. The concept sounds a little Deal or No Deal-like, though instead of suitcases the players puzzle over 24 envelopes containing wide-ranging sums of moolah.
