The series finale of “Burn Notice” will air on Thursday night, and when it ends so will the life of one of the show's main characters. That's all USA will say in advance of the highly anticipated episode titled “Reckoning.” The show follows the dangerous adventures of burned spy Michael Westen (Jeffrey Donovan) and his rag-tag group of spy friends as they use their super-human detection skills to solve mysteries and crack international cases. At the core of the show is its humanity as Westen negotiates his difficult relationship with his troubled mother Madeline, played by Sharon Gless.

Sherman Hemsley, who died of natural causes at his home in El Paso, Texas, on Tuesday, had a lengthy career, but in the minds of most TV-watching Americans, he will always be George Jefferson. Jefferson, the successful owner of a chain of New York City dry cleaners, made his debut in the fourth season of producer Norman Lear's groundbreaking sitcom "All in the Family. " He was Archie Bunker's next-door neighbor, and his appearance on the show in 1973 provided comedic fodder as the two headstrong bigots tried to outdo each other in insults and prejudices.

"Breaking Bad," the sweet little show that captured the hearts of approximately one-fortieth of a nation (more like one-thirtieth, if we reckon by the finale), sent itself into history Sunday with a well-balanced episode that stayed on mission, touching themes present since its first season and consonant even with what we might characterize as the series' faults. (Quirks might be a better word.) I found it intellectually and aesthetically satisfying without being particularly moved by it -- most of these characters stopped being real to me some time ago -- and send congratulations to all concerned from my corner of casual investment.

Andre Ethier opened his right hand, revealing a blister on his palm that popped three days earlier. The area of raw skin was about the size of a quarter, the exposed region large enough to cause him significant discomfort in his bottom hand when holding a bat. The ruptured blister was the latest annoyance in what has been a rough few months for the two-time All-Star outfielder. Ethier was batting a season-best .333 on May 30. He had played 63 games since then entering the Dodgers' series finale against the San Francisco Giants on Wednesday.

"Just to be able play baseball again, to be able to do what I've done all my life, not having to worry about getting hurt," Crawford said. Crawford played in his 106th game Thursday. He played in only 31 last season for the Boston Red Sox, who traded him to the Dodgers days after his operation.

That sore shoulder that Matt Kemp kept denying was giving him problems? Turns out it is giving him some serious problems. Enough that he's out of Saturday's game against the Giants in San Francisco as the Dodgers desperately try to hang on to their dwindling hopes of winning the division. Manager Don Mattingly said Kemp is scheduled to have a contrast MRI on his shoulder Saturday, which will also cause him to miss Sunday's series finale. Kemp has been mired in a 3-for-30 slump since crashing full speed into the Coors Field wall on Aug. 28. Overall, he has 12 hits in his last 73 at-bats (.164)

In its ninth season, the veteran mockumentary comedy (based on the British series created by Ricky Gervais)
