'Lost': Questions That Must Be Answered in the Season Finale

Sun (Yunjin Kim), Jack (Matthew Fox), Charlotte (Rebecca Mader) and Daniel (Jeremy Davies) appear to be lost in thought, perhaps contemplating this season's finale or, like, their contracts. (ABC) Each time we feel we've gained ground in figuring out this whole "Lost" thing, the perspective shifts and we are again left feeling like inept little sleuths who don't know the difference between a Fibonacci Sequence and a figment of the imagination. But still, we try. Below, Jen Chaney and I share our top puzzlers going into the season finale. Yes, we know, there's that four-toed statue and the pirate ship and all (and, trust me, we wanna know as bad as you), but the six questions below are ones we think will likely be addressed -- if not answered to our complete satisfaction -- in next Thursday's two-hour finale. And don't forget to join us for today's 2 p.m....

Catching Up With John Schneider

John Schneider. (PBS) At 48, John Schneider is busier than ever. With 11 projects in various stages of production, the 48-year-old actor -- who first landed on the pop culture radar as the affable, golden-haired, sideburned Bo in TV's "The Dukes of Hazzard" and has more recently popped up on cable faves "Nip/Tuck" and "Smallville" -- says 2008 has been the most productive, and rewarding, year of his life. This Sunday, Schneider will join Gary Sinise, Joe Montegna, Charles Durning and others performing at the National Memorial Day Concert in D.C. and broadcast live on PBS Sunday at 8 p.m. ET. He'll also be elsewhere on the dial, co-starring with Darryl Hannah in the made-for-TV movie "Shark Swarm" (also at 8 p.m. ET). Schneider called from New York yesterday, where he's filming scenes in the upcoming Catherine Zeta-Jones comedy "The Rebound," to talk about Memorial Day, his new-found animal...

The Winehouse & Doherty Show: Totally Mental

Dear Readers, I've seen what crazy looks like and, because I haven't the fortitude to face it alone, I must share with you. (Note: while the video is safe for work, it may leave you forever changed. For the worse. And if you're unable to watch video for whatever reason, here's a good description of what you're missing.): Now, your job is to explain to me: 1. To borrow a phrase of Amy's own invention: "What kind of [expletive] is this?" 2. How Amy and Pete -- both drugged-up messes -- figured out how to upload a video to YouTube. Seriously, I'm stunned when Amy manages to put on a shirt, so this is the equivalent of her figuring out the Fibonacci sequence or, like, remembering the lyrics to her songs. 3. Where did two junkies manage to score a cardboard box full of day-old mice? My first and best...

Paris and Paula Want You Sober

Paula Abdul at Sober Day 2008. (Image courtesy 5WPR) (AP) Like everyone else with a byline and an e-mail address at a major media organization, I am constantly pummeled with annoying press releases. Any delight I get out of them is solely a product of being able to delete them quickly and without mercy. There's just something satisfying about seeing the product of some forlorn junior level PR rep's morning disappear into the ether. But, as the Post Rockers have showcased so well, some releases transcend the common blah-blah-blah-edness to achieve a certain level of interest -- whether by dint of flowery phrasing, breathlessness or unlikeliness. For instance, this one that arrived in my box yesterday afternoon: At the Sober Day USA 2008 event, held at a private residence in Beverly Hills, stars including Paula Abdul, Paris Hilton, the Kardashian sisters, Chris Tucker, Tom Arnold and Larry King all...

Comment Box: John Mayer's Mojo? All in the 'Tude?

Warning: Viewing photo may cause uncontrollable desire to date this man. (Getty Images) What do you think Jen Aniston could possibly see in John Mayer? He's been drinking too much koo-koo-kool-aid in my book. Doesn't that seem like an odd match? -- Submitted during last week's Celebritology Live discussion Koo-koo-Koolaid or not, 30-year-old John Mayer seems to have an almost Lance Armstrong-esque ability to attract his choice of A-list (okay, maybe B) lady loves: Jennifer Love Hewitt, Jessica Simpson, Minka Kelly, among others. And, now, Hollywood untouchable Jennifer Aniston. Just last week, pictures of Mayer snogging with Aniston poolside in Miami hit the net with all the force of Brangelina baby bump shot. And not only is Mayer considered a jumbo-sized chick magnet, he apparently has the ability to love 'em and leave 'em, rendering his exes inconsolable: Last week, a drunken Jessica Simspon was rumored to have been...
