I'm Still Not Over ... The ending of 'Las Vegas'

In last scene of Las Vegas‘ fifth season finale, Danny (Josh Duhamel), Delinda (Molly Simms) and co. mourned the death of the Montecito’s owner A.J. Cooper (Tom Selleck). But, in a shocking twist appropriate for a season-ender, Cooper walked into his own memorial service, revealing to everyone that he survived the plane crash. The pregnant Delinda, yes that’s really her name, then starts bleeding — possibly from the shock of seeing Cooper alive, more likely because whatever was wrong with her pregnancy just happened to manifest itself at that exact moment. And that’s the end of the season.

Unfortunately, it also turned out to be the end of the series, too. And we never found out what happened to Delinda, Danny and their in-danger baby. Months after the show aired — and before it was officially canceled — a source told TV Guide that if Las Vegas failed to receive a sixth season pickup, Duhamel and Simms would appear in the background of the then-new NBC series Knight Rider, holding their newborn. Well, that did not happen, meaning no closure for us. (One could argue that the intention to have them show up on Knight Rider is closure enough. One could also argue that the road to hell is paved with good intentions.)

Oh well, at least there’s always FanFiction. Unless someone wants to start a Kickstarter campaign?

'Michael Jackson: One': Cirque du Soleil gives us a sneak peek -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO

Michael Jackson may have left us exactly four years ago today, but his music continues to live on in various forms.

The new Cirque show promises 22 MJ tunes accompanied by acrobatics and death-defying feats galore, and below we have an exclusive look behind the scenes of the production to show what you’ll be in store for as an eager audience member. One hint: surround-sound speakers in the seats. (Seriously. In your seat.)

CES 2012: Tom Hanks, Will Smith, Justin Timberlake among drove of celebs

The hustle and bustle of sharp-elbowed gadget-watchers is a time-honored lament at CES, but this year it’s getting to the point where a journalist can’t even get to look at the darn products, what with all the celebrities hanging around. While celeb endorsements are nothing new, the stars are out in full force this year. We’re not sure whether they’re feeling geek chic as Hollywood’s latest status symbol or simply see hopping on the tech bandwagon as the next logical biz opportunity — like having a clothing line, perfume, or brand of booze.

Things kicked off at Panasonic’s press conference when famed eco-warrior Ed Begley Jr. hopped onstage to tout the company’s green initiatives, and was later followed by a visit from U.S. soccer legend Brandi Chastain (and fellow ‘ballers Heather O’Reilly and Alex Morgan) to tout 3-D broadcasting of the 2012 Olympics. The otherwise sedate affair got a mainline adrenaline jolt when surprise guest Justin Timberlake hopped onstage to discuss the launch of Myspace TV — JT is a major investor in the moribund social network, after all.

Not a bad showing, but Sony’s presser upped the star wattage even higher with an appearance by Will Smith, who along with MIB3 director Barry Sonnenfeld did their best to banter amiably following a belabored plug for the movie (in theaters near you soon!). Sony capped its presentation with a performance from an aw-shucks Kelly Clarkson (yes, a Sony artist). READ FULL STORY
