Justified Justifiably Gets Renewed for Season 2

... FX's newest drama Justified will be back for Season 2, the network announced yesterday. The show has tapered off a bit since its big debut, but is still basic cable's number-one new show among men. I enjoy the show, but man oh man does it need more Walton Goggins. [FX, via press release]

... Lost—you know, that show about polar bears—is done. Finished. Finito. In the can. So tweeted both Damon and Carlton. But an Italian Web site claims to have six pages of the finale's script. Feel like spoiling it for everyone else, you big jerk? Have a read. [Flavorwire]

... David Boreanaz is a naughty boy. The Bones star and Angel heartthrob has admitted to cheating on his wife of nine years after one of his funtime ladies decided to come forward and demand money for keeping her mouth shut. [People]

... Smallville is returning for a tenth season, but will actress Allison Mack be back for it? She's repeatedly toyed with the idea of leaving her role as Chloe Sullivan on the sci-fi drama, but producers think she'll stick around. [EW]

... NCIS' David McCallum has ended his contract negotiation stalemate and will be back next season to play Donald "Ducky" Mallard. Michael Weatherly, Pauley Perrette, and Sean Murray still haven't signed on to return. [Deadline Hollywood]

... Jimmy Fallon WILL host the Emmys this year. A thousand snoozes. [The Live Feed]

... We won't know the major networks' schedules until after May's upfronts, but we do know one new show that will be part of NBC's lineup: Undercovers. The J.J. Abrams spy show has already been granted a spot on the Peacock's schedule next season with a 13-episode order. The show has already made as many headlines for being associated with producer extraordinaire Abrams as it has for casting of two African-American actors as leads. Score one for diversity on TV! [Deadline Hollywood]

I'm not reading the Lost script, but to the comment that it's filled with swear words in the action descriptions - apparently Lost scripts are. It's a JJ Abrams thing. I read somewhere Two For the Road is particularly in need of having its mouth washed out with soap and water.

Justified may be a sign that television apocolypse is imminently upon us...all it needs now is a Chuck Norris cameo

I agree with CBourque2025, I love the show except for the profanity. I am glad it was renewed, but I do hope the profanity is lessen in season two.

with all the swear words in the script that have little to do with direction and seem quite repetitive in use, I would say the script is a fake. But I wouldn't mind if it happens, it was well written except for the swearing. Also after tonights episode I would expect that desmond's well would be in an earlier episode like next week's, not the last.

Allison should finish on Smallville through the tenth season. Not only would it be a disaster if she leaves, but there is a great opportunity to do justice to her character at the end of the show (and NOT kill her but maybe have her identity change). After all this time, fans should be rewarded.

I hope DiNozzo, Abby and McGee are back on NCIS next year otherwise I might not watch. I was sorry to hear about David, it won't stop me loving his shows though. Also, I'm betting that that Lost script is fake.

Good for Ducky, back in the fold. But come on Tony, Abby and McGee get your rears in gear. What of Gibbs and Ziva have they already signed?

Yay for Justified. The last episode that aired really picked up the pace. Plus Timothy Oliphant is great. Also really interested in the new JJ Abrams show....guy knows how to make a good show.

Allison Mack is a good actress. She's wasted on Smallville now.

I just read the Lost script, and I have to say that it is the fakest thing ive ever seen. First, how did that website get it? second, im no expert, but im pretty sure that scripts dont cuss every two lines while explaining scenes and character thoughts. it sounds very unproffesional and even uses the word "aint" to describe whats going on in a characters mind... no. it is a false script that some idiot made.

I am excited for a second season of Mr. Olyphant and his lovely cowboy hat! But please, more Goggins!

Completely agree with the Justifiable quote: Olyphant+Goggins+ongoing storyline = Paydirt
