It's finale time, and it's also time for us to say goodbye to a few shows that didn't get renewed. This week, Fringe, The Big Bang Theory, Person of Interest, Once Upon a Time and The Vampire Diaries ended their seasons with the knowledge that they'll be coming back, while The Secret Circle signed off for the last time.
We're fully settled into a new year of genre television now, and the list of shows we're watching just keeps getting bigger. Next week, we'll add even more, but this week the shows already on our chart were more than enough to make things interesting. Alcatraz held on to solid numbers in its third week, and Merlin continues to impress over on Syfy. But the big winner was CBS, who saw record nights for both The Big Bang Theory and Person of Interest.
To open or not to open a new transporter toy? That's the question The Big Bang Theory's Sheldon tackles in Thursday's episode. Luckily, he gets some much-needed advice from the most logical source: Leonard Nimoy.
Zachary Quinto obviously isn't a fan of those uber-geeks from The Big Bang Theory, as evidenced by his confusion when an interviewer challenged him to a game of "Rock-paper-scissors-lizard-Spock"—but luckily, the actor proved to be a fast learner.
