    So glad Lost Girl has been renewed. I have over 3 seasons to catch up on!

  2. “Showcase has renewed Lost Girl for a 13-episode fifth season, for the viewers up in Canada. Syfy has not yet announced a decision on possible Stateside airings.” Good. I knew they would.

  3. EJ says:

    NBC is very smart to get Johnny Weir and Tara Lipinski for more appearances. They were definitely a highlight of the Olympics coverage.

  4. sarah says:

    So on Mistresses does that mean that Savanah’s closes it’s doors? At least Harry will remain on the show even if he and Savi do not get back together.

  5. Whatever says:

    I may actually watch some of the Oscar coverage if Johnny & Tara are going to cover it. They were great during the Olympics
