Well as for Hawaii 5-0, I am totally In love, and obsessed with that show. I love all the characters, and I am very sad to hear that one of them will be killed. I also really really hope that they will make another season, I'm looking forward it!


I think that Kono will be killed. She has been wanting to leave for a while. She is married and her family lives on the mainland.


Every time there's a teaser about a show's character getting killed (and yeah, shot doesn't have to mean "killed") it always turns out to be some fringe character. On the Mentalist, I sure hope they don't end another season with him going to be tried for murder ... and then get off again. Of course, I hope they don't do something really stupid by have him shoot someone to save their lives somehow. If it is one of the main characters and he shoots them because they're a Red John disciple, the only one I can see it being is Grace, which would be disappointing.


i wish the big bang would had hour finale. they don't but an show call two broke girls do there somting very wonrg with that


Hi Susan: I read somewhere on the internet - I think it might have even been the LA Times - that Paget Brewster of Criminal Minds WANTED to leave at the end of last season and did so, for all intents and purposes. However, rumor has it that some over-paid lawyer somewhere realized that she was still contracturally committed through 2012 and, as a result, as compelled to come back this season. However, she is DEFINITELY outta there at the end of this year. I think if you Google Paget Brewster and "contract" or "returns to Criminal Minds," or whatever correct phrasing is required, you'll be able to find and read the whole story. Good luck.


Well Hawaii Five-0 better not kill off Steve McGarrett or I am NEVER watching it again. I only watch to drool over Alex O'Loughlin...oh and for the rest of them. It says "one of their own" so it intimates that it should be a Five-0 member but that could mean any recurring character that the team feels is "one of theirs". Person of Interest is the BEST new show on television! I just LOVE it. I like the Elias storyline but I want John & Harold to find him and arrest him or KILL him! I loved the baby episode. Just loved how John put the baby ahead of everything else. I can't believe after EVERYTHING that happened two seasons ago that Paget Brewster would choose to leave NOW! The show won't be on for many more years, it's a job, there are lots of people without them, fans went to a lot of trouble to write letters in her defense to CBS and then she just folds. Dumb move in my humble opinion. I don't care. She isn't an original team member so it doesn't matter. I liked her character but to have her leave NOW doesn't make sense. She should have just stayed dead then!


Some of these finales sound great! NCIS, Criminal Minds - even How I Met Your Mother. Is it wrong to feel glad that they're all wrapping up in May? I'm kind of stoked about getting away from the TV set and going out doors in the spring and summer. ;)


I don't know who it will be on H50 who will die I hope it's not a main character. NCIS sounds it will be good. and Criminal minds sound good as well. it looks like CSI NY will be sad.


I really doubt it will be Kono or Chin who dies on H5O. They are too much a core part of the show. I can't wait for NCIS and NCIS:LA. Also looking forward to Unforgettable.


Great to see CBS is hanging on to its faithful followers, although I heard that they were thinking of changing "The Mentalist" to friday night, stop messing with us fans. After announcing that Jane will hit bottom and even find a love interest and shoot one of his team, now I hear that season 5 is in the works looking for "Lorelei" a love interest for Jane. SO there.
