The eighth and final season of “Dexter” kicks off this week with Dex and Deb coping with the aftermath of killing Capt. LaGuerta. Debra in particular is taking it hard and looks to be headed into a drug and booze-fuelled tailspin. “Dexter” showrunner Scott Buck talks to Entertainment Weekly’s Inside TV blog (http://bit.ly/10Zwi1y) about how the show’s creators wanted to end the series. “I think ideally it will make our audience sit back and see Dexter a little more clearly than before,” Buck says. “People love him for what he does, there’s a lot of wish fulfillment, I think (the ending) will help you see him more of as an actual person. It feels like the exact ending we should be doing.”

Here’s a link to the season 8 trailer (http://bit.ly/17FDu6e), which runs three minutes long and offers a decent tease of what’s to come.

Inside TV also talked to “Modern Family” co-creator Christopher Lloyd (http://bit.ly/11LCSHK) in the wake of the Supreme Court decision clearing the way for same-sex marriages in California. Lloyd says “it’s a real possibility” that Cam and Mitchell could get married, “it’s certainly something we are contemplating on the show in ways we wouldn’t have in prior seasons.”

If you’re not a regular listener of Howard Stern’s satellite radio show you missed a great in-depth interview with Jerry Seinfeld last week. The comedian sat down with Stern for a 90 minute chat, to promote his “Comedians In Cars Getting Coffee” web series and talk about the old “Seinfeld” days and his stand-up career. He talks about whether he thinks he deserves to be called one of the greatest comedians ever, if Larry David is bitter about not getting enough credit for “Seinfeld,” why everything aggravates him as he approaches age 60, and he defends the much-maligned comic Carrot Top.
