Ain't It Cool News (

Herc’s Sunday TV Talkback!!
Last WEEDS Ever!! Penultimate BIG BROTHER!! The Returns of BOARDWALK, REHAB, And BEHIND THE MUSIC!! The Premiere Of ALIEN DEEP!! KARDASHIANS Finale!! More!!

When we last left Nancy Botwin, she and brother-in-law Andy Botwin had just had sex on the spot in Agrestic/Regrestic where Nancy’s husband dropped dead – and Andy fled on foot.

Showtime says of “It’s Time,” the hour-long last “Weeds” ever:

Series finale.

I gather tonight’s “Big Brother” is just a recap show. The 90-minute Wednesday season finale will see the two preliminary winners duke it out for HoH. The HoH will then make the final eviction and the jury will vote to award the $500,000. Spoilers in invisotext. Dan on Thursday night won the endurance semifinal. He’ll face off with Ian, who won the second (facial recognition?) semifinal on Saturday night.

Premiering tonight:

Alien Deep (7pm NGC)

Behind the Music (9pm VH1)

Boardwalk Empire (9pm HBO)


Rehab (8pm VH1)

    by Dead Snoopy

    TWITTER USERS: Tonight is the final episode of #WEEDS, which is ending as it's 8th season concludes. Unfortunately the last 4 seasons have been utter shit, so it's more like we're putting down a sick animal. Send the show's creator (Jenji Kohan) a DIRECT MESSAGE re:her ineptitude & take the time to tweet #JengaNolaughs tonight.

    My prediction: Danielle

    by MapMan

    I think the jury is pretty pissed at Dan. It all comes down to his final speech which will be a doozy and may sway the jury. Dan is full of surprises. But if Dan is evicted Danielle will win.

  • Sept. 16, 2012, 2:33 p.m. CST

    Also, on Saturday night's Showtime After Dark...

    by TopHat

    ...Dan was staring at the board talking to himself and said he was going to throw the third competition so Ian can win. Who would win between Dan and Ian?

  • Sept. 16, 2012, 4:46 p.m. CST


    by Hercules

    I predict Dan will win the final HoH and evict Ian, then the jury will pick Dan to win. (No woman has ever won BB when she was sitting next to a man in the final two.) If Ian wins the final HoH, I predict he'll evict Danielle. Again, Dan takes home the half mil.

  • Sept. 16, 2012, 5:17 p.m. CST

    You're wrong. Dan doesn't have the votes.

    by MapMan

    Frank, Joe and Shane won't vote for Dan. Britney may not either. I don't think Ashley will either. Unless Dan's final speech convinces them he doesn't have the votes. The fact that he's a past winner and that he lied to Frank, Shane and Britney will probably cost him the win.

  • Sept. 16, 2012, 5:41 p.m. CST

    hercules - interesting - it all really hinges on who wins HoH

    by Michael Lunney

  • should be a great show- because it doesn't seem predictable at this point...

  • Sept. 16, 2012, 6:16 p.m. CST

    hercules - If Ian evicts Danielle over Dan- he doesn't deserve to win...

    Sunday lull

    by Truxton Spangler

    nothing really good on for me until Homeland starts. Congrats to Jeremy Davies for his Emmy-winning guest turn on Justified. It appears they've started production, or will soon, but 2013 seems so far away. Carla Gugino is booking other guest spots right now; grab more of her for the new season!

  • Sept. 16, 2012, 6:57 p.m. CST


    by MapMan

    If it comes down to Ian and Danielle in the finals then I think Ian will only get votes from Britney and Ashley. Danielle will get votes from Dan, Shane and Joe. Frank will vote for Danielle too because Ian got him and Boogie out. I think Joe has sympathy for Danielle too. I don't see the jury voting for the better player this season. Britney is the only one.

    Big Brother

    by RayPatterson

    I've been enjoying how Ava the intruder has affected the house this week. And the fake second house last week was great. Sonia is an decent host, but I still miss Gretel.

    DID I JUST GODDAMN SEE THAT? ARE YOU FUCKING KIDDING ME? REVOLUTION PROMO FOR MONDAY NIGHT WHILE WATCHING SN Football. PROMO ROLLING: Picture.. AMERICAN FLAG BEING TAKEN. Smash Cut to GIANCARLO ESPOSITO: "Burn it! Burn Everything!" I've seen the freaking episode. Nowhere in that do they elude to a burning of the fucking American Flag. Some motherfucker at NBC had some fun with goddamn AVID and cut a promo together calling for the burning of the flag.

  • Sept. 16, 2012, 9:29 p.m. CST

    Ian wasn't very strategic.

    by tailhook

    His moves were borderline asinine. His good moves are pushing out Boogie/Frank. But then all he seemed to want to do is stroke himself by getting his alliance to the end. Along the way he allowed himself to be manpulated left and right by Dan. If he was even in the right mind, he would have backdoored Dan when he had the chance when Shane took himself off the block and he put Danielle up. He can't seriously think he even has a shot at winning if Dan is in there, but he does tend to seem to be that stupid, especially now that Dan 'saved him' from eviction. If its Dan/Danielle, Dan Wins. If its Ian/Danielle, Ian wins. If its Dan/Ian, Dan Wins. And yes, if he's stupid enough to try to go heads up with Dan at the Jury he's easily the dumbest player in the history of Big Brother. This whole season has been filled with Idiots with very poor strategic play, with the exception of Dan. If he makes it to the end, simply write him a check.

  • Sept. 16, 2012, 9:30 p.m. CST

    And don't even get me started on Frank.

    by tailhook

    Good guy and a challenge beast, a strategic player of Big Brother he is not.

    I loved the little Chinese girl

    And her dawning suspicion that she wasn't really a Jew either.

    by DavidBanner

    Enjoyed the Finale. In fact, really enjoyed entire season. Maybe the best since the early seasons. Of course, this is the first season I've watched week to week. Always watched the dvds beforehand. I think the this and last season plus the first few seasons may have been the most entertaining. The final scene of the finale really worked for the conclusion.

  • Sept. 16, 2012, 11:17 p.m. CST


    by Loosejerk

    Britney made the case for Dan's game when they showed the jury house and I'm almost sure they are hearing that EVERY DAY until the finale. Usually by the time the finale hits, the bitter feelings have faded and the majority votes for whomever played the best game regardless of the lies and backstabbing. Dan wins unless of course it is Ian/Dani.....and then Danielle takes it.

    hell on wheels is still fun

  • So...Darmody's mom is basically a madam now (she inherited it all?), and the Commodore's mansion's a brothel? Wow... Sad to see Forsythe get popped!

    @mcgootoo: getting far

    by tailhook

    Means nothing. It comes down to your gameplay. Danielle has gotten just as far... is she a good player in your book? Ian definately has potential, but he gets tied up in his own ego rather than focusing on what matters(winning). First, the idiotic decision to leave Dan in the game when he had a chance to backdoor him out when Jenn left. Why did he do that? Because he wanted to stroke his ego that the final four were comprised of the Quack Pack. Then the real stupid shit is going on where he wants to take Dan to the end? Why? Ego. By going heads up against Dan at the Jury, he believes if he wins he could even be considered the 'best' player ever. Even if he did manage to pull out the win, he wouldn't even be considered in the top 10 of the game because his decisions are born of ego, not strategy, and he's been getting fairly lucky that the bad decisions have coincided with Dan having a reason to move someone else out. The simple fact is that if he was as smart and as tactical as he thinks he is.. he would have pushed Dan out of the house and be manuvering himself for the final 2, not trying to go running headlong into a solid brick wall at the end. You play to win the game, and give yourself the best chance of winning. You don't play to beat a specfic player or you usually get got.

    I burn at least one American flag per day.

    by Metroid_Fetish

    It has nothing to do with NBC telling me to. It just seems like the right thing to do after wiping my ass with it after my morning poopy time. Wouldn't want the fucking things clogging up my toilet.

    the newest hell on wheels i thought was the best episode of the entire series thus far. really the first great episode so far. they better have the reverend die, i could see them saying he just got injured.

    I'm a little late to the party, but the last WEEDS was fun!

    by zillabeast

    It's just been so interesting to see how Nancy Botwin's journey has compared and contrasted to Walter White's journey over the years. Nancy goes first, and I think they sent her out just right. I somehow seriously doubt Walter will be as lucky.
