TVIt's the last season of "Lost"! Wait, does that mean viewers have to have solved all the puzzles and unanswered questions by the time the final episode rolls in May? Don't count on it. There's just no way a show this complex and multi-faceted can explain everything to fans' satisfaction — is there? Fans are already puzzling over the photo showing the "Lost" cast enjoying a "Last Supper" style meal. Is Locke the savior? Will he rise from the dead? Where's Desmond?

"Project Runway" and "Top Chef" get all the attention, but what they do for fashion and food, "Shear Genius" does for ... hairstyling? The show gets a new host this year — "Charlie's Angel" Jaclyn Smith, who has some of the most amazing hair in the business, will be stepping down, and Camila Alves, the fiancee of Matthew McConaughey, will take over. (Third season premiere Feb. 3, 11 p.m., Bravo.)

MoviesIf you love Nicholas Sparks' novels ("The Notebook," "Nights in Rodanthe"), you probably already know that his latest romance-turned-movie hits screens this week. "Dear John" stars Channing Tatum and Amanda Seyfried as an army officer and the woman he loves, who has another man in her life. Chick flick central station, not that there's anything wrong with that. (Opens Feb. 5.)Now here's a chilling dilemma: In "Frozen," three people find themselves stranded hanging high on a ski resort chairlift, unable to get down. This is the absolute nightmare for some of us who aren't too fond of heights and/or skiing. It'll be interesting to see how the movie has the three tackle their icy situation. (Opens Feb. 5.)

"From Paris with Love" has an incredibly cool movie poster — the Eiffel Tower is merged with a gun. The action film stars John Travolta as an American spy who joins forces with Jonathan Rhys Meyers (King Henry VIII in Showtime's "The Tudors"), to try to stop a terrorist attack on the City of Light.

DVDWoody Harrelson takes up some power tools and goes after the undead in "Zombieland," a horror comedy that never takes its bloody world too seriously. Film Threat calls it "a heck of a carnival attraction ... on a roller coaster filled with laughs." (Out on DVD Feb. 2.)

MusicLil Wayne fans have been waiting for his latest album, "Rebirth," for as long as it takes a real baby to be born. The album was supposed to come out in April 2009, but was delayed till now. The album's first two singles, "Prom Queen" and "Hot Revolver," peaked at #15 and #33 on the Billboard Hot 100 charts, respectively. (Out on CD Feb. 2.)
