Heroes Will Be Back, Says Heroes Actor

... Have no fear, Heroes fans. The show will be back for another season... says an actor who has a vested interested in the show's return. Greg Grunberg says his Matt Parkman and the rest of the Heroes are definitely coming back, because they just filmed the season finale and there's a lot of cliffhanger-y goodness going on. And how could a show ever be canceled with an unresolved cliffhanger ending? [EW]

... New Orleans is still recovering from Hurricane Katrina's devastation, and MTV isn't helping. The Real World's 24th season will be set in The Big Easy, which should boost the local economy's Margarita-by-the-yard sales and potential Girls Gone Wild videos. "Hurricane Katrina threw New Orleans for a punch, but the city is coming back, and we're hoping our cast members and the series can play a small role in the city's rebirth," said a clueless and exploitative MTV exec.

... Fox has pulled Our Little Genius, their Who Wants to be a Millionare for adorable suit-wearing kids, from its schedule. Why? The network screwed up big time. Producer Mark Burnett said, "I recently discovered that there was an issue with how some information was related to contestants during pre-production." Translation: We gave kids the answers to make the show cooler. Oops! [Fox]

... Bones is dipping into its past by bringing back Zack! Unfortunately, I don't watch this show and have no idea who Zack is, but it sounds pretty awesome, especially since Zack rhymes with back. Actor Eric Millegan will return for the show's 100th episode in April, which flashes back to Booth and Brennan's first assignment together. [EW]

... A future episode of Glee will feature an all-Madonna soundtrack, and MadonnaTribe has scooped the song list. "Borderline," "Open Your Heart," "Burning Up," "Crazy For You," both "Like a Virgin" and "Prayer," and "Vogue" are among those songs reported to be in. In other news, imagine an entire tribe of Madonnas. Scary! [MadonnaTribe]

... Howard Stern sidekick and Dirty Work star Artie Lange tried to Elliot Smith himself by inserting a knife into his own chest. Nine times. Reports say he sustained six "hesitation wounds" and "three deep plunges," which sounds absolutely God-awful. Of the attempted suicide, Stern said, "We all have our demons." Lange's abrasive comedic style may be off-putting to some, but he's funny. Take care of yourself, Artie. [NY Post]

Its about time they get Heroes going again. It would be a shame if they ended it in a cliffhanger like Dark Angel. Ummm Jessica Alba.

I'm looking forward to Eric Milligans return to Bones. I wasn't thrilled with the way Zack was written out of the show but it's great to have him back for the shows 100th episode.

Heroes is really pretty good. Volume three really messed things up and then volume four put them back into place. Volume Five is kinda like season one but a bit more confusing. With season one everybody was living somewhat normal lives while all coming together to stop a bomb. With season 4 (volume Five) the heroes (and villans) are back into their normal lives just doing things and they don't know what is going on around them. Thats the same concept as season one only this time around even we don't know everything yet. I think the show is really starting to form a new image. All they need to do now is find a way for Sylar to die....forever. I am so happy that season five is gonna happen. For the 100th episode they should do an entire episode in the future like they did in season 1.

Ending a show on a cliffhanger is not a good idea. If the show gets canceled, they will be so many loose ends that it will just kill the series even worse that what it is experiencing in ratings.

There's like 50 shows out there that has been cancelled without answering their cliffhanger finale. But he's right, there's literally no signs of Heroes being pushed onto the chopping board...looks like we will be treated, sorry forced to 1 more season of....I dunno what to put there.

Wasn't ALF canceled with a cliffhanger too? Guess that disproves that theory but they did make a Made for TV movie like what 6 years later? Just finish up the show. It's over with.

Right Greg, a cliffhanger ending saves a show from cancellation; you should've seen what ABC did with Eastwick.

I wonder if they will bring back the actor who played Bones' boss back in season one.

As for Heroes ending on a cliffhanger, they should. A lot of shows have ended on cliffhangers, so to speak, and were fine. I just hope NBC realizes that Heroes needs to be pulled.

Greg Grunberg, may I have your attention please. Being in the entertainment business, you should be aware of the ratings your show has been getting. It's not cliffhanger endings that save a show, but at least 7 million viewers by NBC's standards. And if my facts are right - close to 4 million watch your show., which is ...you get the math. I hope you guys wrap things up, so that we invest time in something else.

Heroes would be better off on The CW.

they should just film 6 special episodes, that show a final epic battle through time and the return of an old character (adam) and his plan to kill all heroes. then solve all unanswered questions in these episodes such as what happened to monica and caitlin. like the torchwood and dr.who series
