Ah, as we previously reported all the year-end accolades are beginning to pour in, and here is the latest that should please many a primetime soap fan!   The knock-em-sock-em-stab-everyone-in-the-back a minute soap, Revenge was named the series with the Best Cliffhanger of 2012 by EW.com this morning!

EW.com chose Revenge’s May season finale episode titled, “Reckoning” as the number one cliffhanger stating:  “In EW.com’s annual Season Finale Awards last May, Victoria Grayson (Madeleine Stowe) stepping onto a plane that then blew up earned the show the Best (Presumed) Death crown — and it was just one of the cliffhangers in the soap’s first season ender: Emily also discovered that her mother is still alive, Lydia Davis and Charlotte could have also died (in that plane crash and from an overdose, respectively), and pregnant Fauxmanda returned to once again thwart Emily’s chances with Jack.”

Also making the top five were the season finales of Once Upon A Time, Game Of Thrones, Breaking Bad and Grey’s Anatomy

So, do you agree with EW.com’s primetime cliffhanger choices?  Let us know!

Sorry Lia and Paul, but as much as I enjoy Dallas….The episode of Revenge that was named best cliffhanger is deserving of this title….It was a jaw dropper and a real game changer. Season 2 has delivered the same punch so far as well.

revenge’s finale was completely anti climactic. One too many pills? The protagonist’s mother who was never mentioned is alive? A plane crash cliffhanger? Do the idjets from ew not know any soap opera tropes? the idjets of ew have very horrid tastes when it comes to the crap that hollywood has churned. this award for revenge as “best cliffhanger” is mildly dumb compared to some of their “best” films. the idjets of ew named “the cabin in the woods” as a future cult favorite. what the heck?! that film cast amy acker who is a white actress to portray Asian… Read more »

The major failure of revenge’s cliffhanger was that victoria is THE villain of the soap. emily’s scheming is abt revenge against victoria. Therefore there would be no “revenge” w/o victoria and thus the plane crash cliffhanger was stupid. the ew “writers” have no idea what makes a good soap and what makes a good cult favorite. Do they get paid specifically to butter up the egos of some hollywood “artists” bec they seem to really favor josh whedon’s projects. They named “cabin in the woods” a cult favorite despite its offensive whitewashing w/c is a pracitce that josh whedon likes… Read more »

Corbin Bernsen to Reprise His Role of Arnie Becker in ‘LA Law’ Revival Pilot

Corbin Bernsen (Father Todd, The Young and the Restless) and the son of Y&R’s late great Jeanne Cooper (Katherine Chancellor) has signed on to reprise his signature primetime television role of womanizing lawyer Arnie Becker in the upcoming LA Law revival pilot.

This makes Corbin the co-lead of the series alongside Blair Underwood (Ex-OLTL) who previously signed on to the pilot to reprise his role of Jonathan Rollins.  ABC has greenlit the pilot.

According to Deadline, it is believed that Bernsen and Underwood will be the only original members of the mid 80’s-90’s legal drama on NBC in the pilot, but more may guest-star if the show gets picked up for a full-season order.

In the premise of the reboot, the law firm of McKenzie Brackman, now named Becker Rollins, reinvents itself as a litigation firm specializing in only the most high profile, boundary pushing and incendiary cases.  The show will feature familiar characters working alongside new ones on the most hot button issues of the day.  As for Bernsen’s Becker, now in his 60’s, look for him to struggle with a rapidly shifting sexual and political landscape.

The original LA Law ran for eight seasons from September 15, 1986 to May 19, 1994 on NBC.

So, what do you think of Corbin taking on the role of Arnie Becket in a revival of LA Law? Would you be intrigued to check out the show if it makes it to series? Comment below.
