Actress Melissa McCarthy who’s portrayed Lorelai’s loveable best friend Sookie St. James for the past six seasons has signed on to the ABC comedy pilot SAM I AM. “Sam,” from ABC TV Studio and Brillstein-Grey TV, centers on a woman (Christina Applegate) with amnesia who has to rediscover her life. Jean Smart (24) will play her self-absorbed mother. Regardless of whether or not “Sam” goes forward, the fact that McCarthy is actively looking for another project begs the question — Does Sookie St. James know something we don’t? Is GILMORE GIRLS really coming to an end? Stay Tuned.

    I also heard that Matt Czuchry (Logan) has a pilot in the works – though rumour has it that the pilot was put on hold. I just can’t see Gilmore Girls going on without every member of the cast.

    It’s time to end…this season has been boring and isn’t going anywhere.

    This is very frusterating and hard for me because I would totally love another season of Gilmore Girls. HOwever I know that that is looking less likely each day. On the other hand, I would kill for another season of VM and I know that GG being over gives VM a slight better chance (it may not be much better, but even a slight better chance is something). So if I had to choose right now I’d say I’d rather GG end and VM come back. But that is soooooo hard to say because I love GG so much. IN a perfect world I would get both GG and VM next season, but that seems about impossible. So basically, this news is both good (cuz no GG=maybe VM), but then sad (cuz no GG)…

    Amy Sherman-Palladino, the creator of Gilmore Girls, and Daniel Palladino, the executive producter of Gilmore Girls have a faboulous new project called, “The Return of Jezebel James”, starring Parker Posey (Best in Show, A Mighty Wind, and Party Girl) and Lauren Ambrose (Six Feet Under).

    I live in the area that “Stars Hollow” was named after. My little daughter and I found peices of the puzzle and have been huge fans for years.
    I wish the girls (L.G and A. B.) greatness and infamy beyond belief ( because, that , apparently, means more than the silliness previously begotten.)
