TVLine Items: Boardwalk's Season 5 Teaser, New Loser Trainers and More

“The trick is to stay alive long enough to cash out,” Steve Buscemi’s Nucky Thompson muses in a new teaser for Boardwalk Empire‘s final season. Of course, that might be easier said than done.

HBO on Sunday aired this chilling first look at Season 5 — premiering in September — and if the uneasy cover of Three Dog Night’s “One (Is the Loneliest Number)” is any indication, Bucky won’t find himself with too many allies when the prohibition drama comes to a close.

Ready for more of today’s newsy nuggets? Well…

* NBC’s The Biggest Loser has added two new trainers to its upcoming 16th season: fitness experts Jennifer Widerstrom and Jessie Pavelka. Though Jillian Michaels will not be appearing on the new season, trainers Bob Harper and Dolvett Quince are both expected back.

* Rosie O’Donnell is reportedly considering a return to The View, following the sudden departures of Jenny McCarthy and Sherri Shepherd, according to Fox News. O’Donnell served as a co-host on the ABC daytime talk show from Sept. 2006 to May 2007.

Sherlock will likely return to BBC One with a Christmas special, star Martin Freeman tells the UK’s Telegraph.

* Season 30 of MTV’s The Real World will take place in Chicago, per the Chicago Tribune. The Windy City also served as the setting for the series’ 11th season.

    How many episodes is Boardwalk S5?

    • lechatnoir says:

      13 will be good and hopefully a potential ladies only spin off , there is too much opportunities there and too many half told stories . We need more madness

  2. Sheldon W. says:

    It’s time to erase The View from TV.

  3. Rdub says:

    It’s Nucky….not Bucky lol

  4. Tran says:

    Don’t know much about the two new trainers joining The Biggest Loser this upcoming season.

    • David says:

      The new female trainer has been on NBC before- she was one of the gladiators on NBC’s American Gladiators version a few years back..

  5. Looking forward to B.E, for my money a better show than the much talked about GOT. The fact that it is the final series is a disappointment but I would rather it went out now, instead of overstaying it’s welcome with boring, turgid episodes.

    A bonus ep of Sherlock, yes!
