Here's what else you shouldn't miss this week:

'Mockingbird Lane': A show worth saving?

[Editor's Note: Stop reading this post now if you don't want to know what happened on the premiere of "Mockingbird Lane."]

Friday night may very well have been the final word on NBC's "Mockingbird Lane," which boasts one of the most expensive pilots this season.

This reboot of the classic sitcom "The Munsters" reportedly cost $10 million, and you could see every penny on screen. (And yes, the theme song survived.)

Tragedy strikes on 'Fringe'

[Editor's Note: Stop reading this post now if you don't want to know what happened on the last episode of "Fringe."]

I have to say, "Fringe" is hitting all the right notes in this final season, and Friday night's episode was no exception (as heartbreaking as it was to see).

The quest for Walter's videotapes continued, as Peter conducted a daring plan to take the second tape, making a quick getaway into the sewers (thankfully, he emerged largely unscathed despite how it looked in the promos).

Today's news you might've missed:

  • As Leighton Meester says goodbye to Blair Waldorf, her character on The CW’s “Gossip Girl,” she’ll also say arrivederci to her long locks. The actress recently debuted a short, choppy bob. [People]
  • We’re not yet sure what Kimye will don this Halloween, but we did get a glimpse of the pair in costume. Kardashian tweeted a picture from 2008 of her and Kanye dressed as Princess Leia and a Stormtrooper, respectively, from “Star Wars.” [Twitter]
  • Lindsay Lohan and her publicist Steve Honig have parted ways after about a year and a half together. E! did us a favor and recounted each of the LiLo incidents Honig got to witness firsthand. (There are a few.) [E!]
  • You’ll have to wait a few more days before you can get your hands on Ne-Yo’s upcoming studio album, “R.E.D.” But in the meantime, you can listen to him on the sequel track to “Yes We Can,” which is not officially affiliated with the Obama campaign. [Mashable]
  • Her breakout hit, “Call Me Maybe,” spent nine weeks at No. 1 on the Hot 100, so it’s fitting that Carly Rae Jepsen has been named Billboard’s “Rising Star” of 2012. [Billboard]

Taylor Swift on track to set record amid breakup rumors

Taylor Swift is on track to join the very short list of artists and groups who’ve had back-to-back albums sell a million units in a week.

In the Nielsen SoundScan era, which dates back to 1991, just the Backstreet Boys, 'N Sync and Eminem have accomplished the fete, each with albums releasing between 1999 and 2002, Billboard reports.

If Swift’s “Red” hits the million mark by Sunday, the country-pop princess will become the first artist in a decade, and first ever female, to achieve the same success. Her last studio album, “Speak Now,” sold more than a million units during its debut week in November 2010.

But before we go deeming this Swift’s (potential) “best week ever,” we should note, the “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together” singer reportedly parted ways with beau Conor Kennedy, according to US Weekly.
