The end has come, Jukeboxers! There’s an apocryphal story that the Inuit people have hundreds of words for snow. These past few weeks, we at Jukebox probably could have used about that many synonyms for cliffhanger. Between planes crashing, kidnappings, births, deaths, weddings, reunions, and dance parties, it’s been a groovy goodbye to the 2011-2012 TV season. Check out our picks below and make sure to click through to the final page to listen to a track-for-track Spotify playlist of these “show tunes.” (Warning for those still catching up on DVR: MAJOR SPOILERS ahead!)

Tag: Grey's Anatomy (1-5 of 5)
Actor Kevin McKidd may sport a growly American accent as Dr. Owen Hunt on Grey’s Anatomy, but the Scotland-native’s true roots shine through on his upcoming album, The Speyside Sessions, a collection of traditional Scottish songs.
Admittedly, he says, the album is “not the thing you’d expect,” but ultimately, it was a chance for the actor to reconnect with his roots, honor his late grandfather (who first exposed him to Scottish music), and something good for the world. Recorded two years ago with old friends during a five-day jam session in his native land, the album’s proceeds will benefit Save the Children, a charity for which McKidd is an ambassador.
“It seemed like a good fit to bring all these people from my past and from my upbringing and all these songs that were important to me [together],” he says. The record goes on sale June 15 and will be available on iTunes and via other retailers.
But one thing Grey’s fans shouldn’t expect? Cameos from any of his co-stars. Well, not this time around, at least. “They are some great singers but sadly they all had Christmas plans. It was hard to get any of them to come to the wild highlands of Scotland with me. I would have loved it if they did,” he says. “But there’s always The Speyside Sessions 2.”
Below, check out an exclusive look behind the scenes of the project, narrated by Ewan McGregor.
The teens were out in full force this week, music-on-TV fans! From first times to first loves — even first scooters — there were notable songs from The Secret Circle, Switched at Birth, Surburgatory, The Vampire Diaries, and Pretty Little Liars. Meanwhile, there was beauty in tragedy on One Tree Hill, The Voice makes it first appearance with a knock-out performance, suspicion ruled on Grey’s Anatomy and Grimm (though only one of the above involved fire dancing I’m sorry to report), a serial killer got his groove on in BBC America’s Being Human, and the gang from Happy Endings got gangsta with it on Penny’s birthday. Want more still? We also liked “show tunes” from Ringer, Californication, and The Good Wife. Check out our picks below. (Warning for those still catching up on DVR: SPOILERS ahead!) READ FULL STORY
