Live blog: 'Lost' finale

Sunday, 23 May 2010 08:50 PM Written by

So it comes down to this: The final two-and-a-half hours of ABC's "Lost."

Thursday, 20 May 2010 02:10 PM Written by

In 1997, WTAE on-air talent voted to decertify AFTRA as the union for on-air talent. Now the station’s reporters, anchors and others have apparently had a change of heart. On Wednesday the American Federation of Television and Radio Artists, Pittsburgh local, petitioned the National Labor Relations Board to represent the station’s 25 on-air employees in collective bargaining.
AFTRA represents on-air talent at KDKA and WPXI.

Will Sue (Eden Sher) finally succeed at something? (ABC)

The title of tonight's first-season finale of ABC's "The Middle" (8:30 p.m., WTAE) is "Average Rules." It's unfortunately applicable to this particular episode of the generally enjoyable underdog series.

As the school year comes to an end. the Heck clan gets several shocks and/or setbacks: Brick (Atticus Shaffer) may be held back a year by a school librarian (guest star Betty White), upset that he hasn't returned any of the books he checked out; Axl (Charlie McDermott) may be smarter than his parents think and Sue (Eden Sher) is left out of the yearbook.
