    I thought there were still a couple more episodes left, but I could be wrong.

    According to IMDB, there's a show on May 10th and a two hour show on May 17th.

    But if that's not possible, gimme a Margarita...shaken, not stirred...and hold the salt, please.

    Will the Dave story ever END?
    If it doesn't end soon then he will end up targeting half of the cast as potential victims and kill of even more supporting actors...geez, come on, seriously.

    Stop being lazy, writers, and get us a new story.
    p.s.-not a ridiculous story like that kid locked in his basement (that did nothing to advance the main story/characters as a whole)

    Ages ago! Just in time for the court hearing where he was cleared for lack of evidence. Turns out he ran away to Lynette's estranged mom at the nursing home. As a result, Lynette has reconciled with her mom and supposedly agreed to visit her on a regular basis, although we haven't seen any of those scenes since then.

    I wish they had brought Gale Harold back for a better storyline. They seem to be wasting him.

    I'm just glad they brought him back this season instead of waiting till fall, or not bringing him back at all.

    I did notice something on the show...he did a lot of sitting in his scenes. And they didn't show his face as he was running down the stairs before leaving the house at the end I think he's still on the mend...

    I noticed that too. They also didn't show any of when Susan was beating on him. I agree, that it's nice he's back now! I think he's such a a good looking guy.

    Shades Of 'Golden Girls,' Sisters May Get Show

    By ROBERT RORKE

    ARE you ready for a new "Golden Girls"?

    Lily Tomlin and Kathryn Joosten, who play scheming sisters Roberta and Karen McCluskey on "Desperate Housewives," are in talks to play those roles as stars of their own series, a spinoff of the ABC hit.

    Joosten, who first endeared herself to viewers as White House presidential secretary Mrs. Landingham on NBC's "The West Wing," has been with the show since 2004. Seen first as the sarcastic neighbor, Mrs. McCluskey, Joosten's character has grown in recent years to a solid supporting role, even though she only has guest-star billing.

    Tomlin, who replaced Joosten as "The West Wing" presidential secretary after Landingham was killed off, first appeared this season. In a recurring role, Roberta was brought in to help her sister gain info on Wisteria Lane psycho Dave Williams (Neal McDonough) by searching his insurance claims and telephone records.

    "Roberta is a shady person. She is one of those fringe people who would do anything," says Tomlin who, like Joosten, will turn 70 this year.

    Creating a show around two older women would certainly swim against the tide of modern, youth-obsessed TV.

    But it's been done before -- most successfully in the sitcom "Golden Girls," an unlikely hit of the late '80s and early '90s that is still in reruns.

    It's not clear whether the proposed series, which is still untitled, would be produced by "Desperate" creator Marc Cherry or if Tomlin's partner, award-winning writer Jane Wagner, would be involved.

    "Cherry clearly knows how to write for these two actresses," says a source close to the production. "And we would love to have him involved."

    The continued popularity of "Desperate Housewives," which has been renewed for a sixth season, makes any of its characters prime candidates for a spinoff. But Joosten and Tomlin have beaten main stars Teri Hatcher, Felicity Huffman, Eva Longoria Parker and Marcia Cross to the punch.

    As a duo, Tomlin and Joosten are famous for their powers of persuasion. When Joosten informed Tomlin she was going to have a sister on the show, the "Laugh-In" veteran came right out and said she would love to be on the show.

    "She got to her agent and said why don't you call Marc Cherry?" Joosten recalls.

    Unlike Karen McCluskey, Tomlin's character doesn't currently reside on "Desperate's" Wisteria Lane and modifications to the basic story would have to be made to let her live there.
    I'd love to see these two in a series, but the writing would have to be incredible. It would need to have Marc Cherry's wit, but be less "precious" in tone than Housewives. I wonder how far along this idea really is...
