'Rescue Me' to end in 2011
The best show on TV, "Rescue Me" will end production in 2011, the Daily Variety reported on Aug. 28. Dennis Leary's brilliant portrayal of troubled New York firefighter Tommy Gavin has been clever, hilarious and emotionally charged since its first episode in 2004.
Variety reports "Rescue Me" has 19 episodes remaining after next week's season 5 finale. Speculation is 10 episodes will air in 2010 and nine more to close out the series in 2011. The show will close its book 10 years after the Sept. 11 attacks that inspired it.
