Owen (Andre Braugher), who has a wonderful wife (LisaGay Hamilton) and three young children, is finally starting to assert himself after his father turned over the keys to the family automobile dealership.

Resistant to the idea of retiring, Owen’s father (Richard Gant) constantly tries to undermine his authority and has told Owen that the dealership is financially in the red.

Terry (ScottBakula) has decided to give up his acting career and go to work for Owen as a car salesman, a job that seems well suited to his ample charms and need for stability.

I guess those negotiations didn’t quite go his way.  Chris Meloni who has played the often loose cannon sex crimes Detective Stabler will not be returning for season 13.  Creator Dick Wolf , who we all know has no problem axing an actor and replacing them before you can  blink is already looking for a big name to bring in opposite series regular Mariska Hargitay.
The season 12 series ended with Meloni’s character being forced to kill an armed teenage girl who had opened fire on her mother’s murderer (among others) in the SVU squad room.  I am sure the trauma of that event will play heavily in explaining his departure .
Mariska Hargitay’s own deal to return for Season 13 remains unaffected

 It's Red John!
 Released by Miss TV Girl

“The Mentalist” season finale was completely awesome.  OK I know it aired a couple of nights ago, but I just got around to watching the episode today.  Now in all honesty I was two steps away from not returning for the 4th season.  Why? I started to feel like it was a drain to watch the show week after week; the cases weren’t as entertaining and started to become a little predictable (“Castle” any one).  But, tonights  2hour episode was a complete game changer and it had me on the edge of my seat up until the final reveal and demise of Red John, well done Bradley Whitford. 

I don’t know if a lot of people were surprised that Patrick Jane shot and killed Red John in cold blood, but I wasn’t.  From day one he has said “I will kill Red John “and boy did he keep his word.  Creator Bruno Heller told TV Guide "We won't dodge any issues. Patrick won't wake up and discover it was all a dream. There will be consequences."

I am now so excited for next season, because I think the series really needed a game changer like this to shake up the series.  By the way I am not really sure that Jane killed the real Red John.  Once again great finale.

The fourth season of True Blood starts June 26, but believe it or not I have just started watching the series this month and boy am I enjoying this show.  I can't believe I am 3 seasons behind, especially with all the hype that has surrounded the series since day one.  Not having HBO is not enough of a an excuse, because I have never missed an episode of "Curb Your Enthusiam" and its on HBO. Also, considering my  obsessive affinity for anything that involves vampires, werewolves, witches and  my new favorite shapeshifters.

Please check out the below clip for the 4th season of "True Blood".  I am only on the 1st season, so I have a lot of episodes to watch before the show returns next month.

Released by Miss TV Girl
Ingo Rademacher(Jasper Jacks) has been let go after more than 15 years from ABC soap "General Hospital"  
 “It is with mixed emotions and regret that I write this note to you, my fans and colleagues,” the actor said in a statement. “After 15 years on GH portraying Jax I must say goodbye. I’m fired.”   No details regarding his last air date has been released.
I would like to say that I am sorry to hear this bit of news, but I am not.  I never really connected to this character at all and he was paired with the forever awesome Laura Wright.  However, I do wish Ingo and his family “Good Luck” and I am sure another soap will snatch him up really soon.

Ok, I haven't seen a lot of the sneak peeks for the new fall series, but I am really excited to watch NBC's "Awake".  Check out the trailer and let me know what you think. 


Released Miss TV Girl

Brian Frons, president of Daytime, Disney/ABC Television Group announced today that Garin Wolf has been named head writer of  one the few remaining daytime dramas "General Hospital.  Now a girl can only hope and dream that this will improve the soap.  I have watched "General Hospital" pretty much my whole life with few complaints, but I am so ready to bail right now. The soap has become so repetitive in its storytelling and I so hate this whole Brenda storyline.  Now, I will be honest I never watched the Brenda  and Sonny years, so I was not invested nor moved by the pending reunion of the two, however I was excited to finally see this couple I had heard so much about together again.

In one word I was completely "Disappointed".  I know this might sound a little insane considering I am talking about a soap opera, but that Vanessa Marcil Giovinazzo is a little over the top in the acting category.

 At this point I am only tuning in for the Jason and Carly rerelationship, however my devotion to those two characters is wavering with each day that passes.

I really hope the first thing on Garin Wolf's agenda is to clean house on a lot of unnecessary characters(Olivia, Matt, Lisa, and Sioahan).  I know this will never happen, but if Dante and Kristina could just disappear into oblivion, it would be a great day in the world of Miss TV Girl.

 Fox giveth and it taketh away. In the wake of picking up several new series to order, the network has axed five shows — the action-packed Human Target, crime dramas Lie to Me and The Chicago Code , and freshman comedies Breaking In and Traffic Light, Deadline reports.

Human Target, starring Mark Valley, only averaged 6.33 million viewers in its second season, while Lie to Me, headlined by Tim Roth, pulled in an average of 5.84 million viewers for Season 3.

First-year cop drama The Chicago Code averaged 6.77 million viewers in the 11 episodes aired so far. According to HitFix, the remaining episodes will still air. As for the Christian Slater workplace comedy Breaking In, it's averaged 7.83 million viewers over the five episodes that have aired. The relationship comedy Traffic Light has averaged 3.66 million viewers in its 11 outings.

"Thanks for all the kind words everyone. We tried to make the best show we could and we thank those of you who watched it," Chicago Code creator and showrunner, and former Lie to Me showrunner, Shawn Ryan tweeted late Tuesday. "Sounds like Lie To Me has been cancelled as well. My sympathies to all the talented people over there."

 In happier news, Fox is the first network to reveal its series orders for the comedies I Hate My Teenage Daughter and The New Girl and dramas Finder and Alcatraz.

In Teenage Daughter, two women (Jaime Pressly and Katie Finneran) fret that their daughters are turning into the type of girls who picked on them in high school. Sherry Bilsing-Graham and Ellen Kreamer will executive-produce. Eric Sheffer Stevens, Kristi Lauren, Aisha Coleman, Kevin Rahm and Chad Coleman will also star.

The New Girl (which had spotlighted as one of its 11 Promising Pilots) stars Zooey Deschanel as a brokenhearted elementary school teacher who moves away from her ex and instead bunks with three unruly guys. She'll be the second Deschanel on the Fox network, joining her sister Emily who stars on Bones.

Speaking of Bones, the forensic drama's spin-off Finder follows a former military policeman (Geoff Stults) with the ability to find anything. Saffron Burrows and Michael Clarke Duncan also star. The characters were introduced in a Bones episode in April. Hart Hanson wrote the pilot and will executive-produce.

Finally, Alcatraz centers on a cop (Sarah Jones) and a team of FBI agents who track down a group of missing Alcatraz prisoners and guards who reappear in the present day after disappearing 30 years earlier. J.J. Abrams will executive-produce and Liz Sarnoff (Lost) will be the showrunner. Jorge Garcia, Sam Neill, Jonny Coyne, Jason Butler Harner, Parminder Nagra, Santiago Cabrera and Robert Forster also star.
