Shameless Finale: See 12 More Shocking Season Closers

Originally posted 03/27/2014 06:00PM

In this current Golden Age of Television, many of our biggest shows follow what one might call the HBO Rule of Drama: Use each season's penultimate episode for the fireworks, and spend the finale picking up the pieces.

Fortunately, there are still shows out there practicing the ancient art of the season finale cliffhanger – most notably Showtime's Shameless, which wrapped up its fourth season Sunday night by bringing back Justin Chatwin's Steve Wilton, a former boyfriend to Fiona Gallagher (Emmy Rossum), who fans thought murdered at the end of the previous season.

In honor of the throwback nature of the drama's surprising twist – seriously, it was straight out of the Dallas playbook – let's go back in time and run through some of the most shocking finales in TV history. (We're talking season finales here, not series; that's a whole other listicle.) Warning: Major spoilers for all shows below.

Originally posted 01/30/2014 02:00PM

Seinfeld's coming back – but the details are more yada yada than concrete.

Jerry Seinfeld confirmed a reunion of his eponymous '90s sitcom is happening – at least, sort of.

The comedian, whose popular – and quotable – show about a quartet of narcissistic New Yorkers wrapped in 1998 after a nine-year run, gave away a few details about the project while appearing on a sports radio talk show Thursday, according to CBS New York.

There was a Seinfeld reunion in New York City Monday.

Two of the show's stars – Jerry Seinfeld and Jason Alexander – were spotted walking outside of Tom’s Restaurant. In case you don't have our encyclopedic knowledge of the long-running '90s show, that's the revered NYC deli on Broadway and West 112th Street that fans of the show know better as Monk's. Many of the most famous scenes from Seinfeld were set inside soundstage replicas of the diner's booths.

As anyone who isn't Nell knows, this week Prince William and Duchess Catherine welcomed their son, Prince George Alexander Louis, in an event that nearly took over the internet with second-by-second commentary on everything from Kate's hair (she looked like she just stepped out of a salon, not the delivery room) to the baby's Seinfeldian name (George Costanza, Jason Alexander, Julia Louis-Dreyfus). But more happened this week than just the birth of a babe who may or may not celebrate Festivus. So read on for your Internet fix:

Julia Louis-Dreyfus Surpasses Lucille Ball's Record & Makes Emmy History

Originally posted 07/18/2013 12:40PM

We all love Lucy, but when it comes to Emmy nominations, Julia Louis-Dreyfus finally has the iconic comedienne beat.

On Thursday, the erstwhile Seinfeld star made Emmy history when she received her 14th Emmy nomination in the category of outstanding lead actress in a comedy series, surpassing the record long-held by I Love Lucy star – and enduring TV favorite – Lucille Ball.

Louis-Dreyfus, 52, nabbed the nod for her role as gaffe-prone Vice President Selina Meyer on the HBO show Veep. It's her second nomination in this category for her fictitious beltway role, and she took home the statue in 2012.

Len Lesser, best known as the scene-stealing Uncle Leo on Seinfeld – "Jerry! Hello!" was his slogan – died from cancer-related pneumonia at a care facility in Burbank, Calif., it was announced Wednesday. He was 88.

"Heaven got a great comedian and actor today," his daughter Michele said in a statement.

Of Uncle Leo, Lesser told the Los Angeles Times in 1998: "He's the kind of guy who is a total nuisance at times and the kind of guy you avoid. He's a very expansive character, and that has an attraction to it."
