The Chase brother worth rooting for - no, not the handsome one with the blank look stapled to his face - will finally get his payday. With the help of Andrew Dice Clay, Johnny Drama stood up to the network and made them cave to their actors' strike. "Johnny Bananas," the cartoon show with promise, will make it to the air, and most importantly, Dice will be his sidekick. Sorry, Jamie Kennedy, but your "talents" are no longer needed. When Drama muttered "victory" in half-astonishment, half-relief, it was a nice moment for a guy who's been a punchline for many episodes.

A decade after graduating from Baltimore's Gilman School, some alumni might be vaulting up the ladder in careers as executives or politicians. But Brian Sher, Class of '86, was looking at the lowest rung - starting out as a trainee in the mailroom of a Hollywood talent agency. After attending Tulane and the University of Southern California, Sher had tried doing most of the things young people do to break into show business: working as production assistant on a movie, playing a walk-on character and writing a screenplay.

Why isn't "Entourage" pulling out all of the stops in its final season? The stakes have felt small each episode (with the exception being the quickly brushed aside suicide). Last season's arc of Vince and his drug use gave the show an emotional weight it had always missed. We're now halfway through the last season and the climax it's building to feels insignificant. Episode 5, titled "Motherf-----," was long scenes of one-on-one dialogue without much action. "Entourage" has rarely asked its characters to make their characters seem relatably real or empathetic, but this episode called for actual acting . Let's break down the episode by ranking how compelling each characters' storylines felt: 1.)

Why is Doug O'Neill, trainer of Kentucky Derby winner I'll Have Another, not accompanying his horse to Baltimore today to begin preparation for the May 19 Preakness? Does he not know of our reputation for crab cakes? Has he not heard that the hottest team in baseball plays just a few miles from Pimlico? Is he offended that the drinking preference of race-day patrons swings so drastically from fine bourbon to even finer Boh for the second leg of the Triple Crown? O'Neill, a trainer who has the look and mannerisms of a high school football coach in his native Michigan, is back in California.

For the final episode of "Entourage," creator and writer Doug Ellin went all-in, for better or worse. It was a finale that felt like a Finale, with huge plot points being tied together as if the Mayans were right all along about 2012. Some storylines were more believable than others, but one thing was for sure - the "Entourage" boys wanted to go for broke, raising the stakes tenfold in both cheap and effective ways. The endgame for Vince, who always balanced an enigmatic reputation with a personality that often felt like a blank canvas, was Sophia, a journalist who Vince fell in love with at first sight.

They said it couldn't be done, but Doug Ellin and his crew finally did it. They put together an episode of "Entourage" with actual purpose and direction. Is it sad it took them until the penultimate episode of the entire series to do it? Probably, but at this point, we should take what we can get. Let's get the least interesting storyline out of the way first: Vince is still smitten with the beautiful and intelligent journalist Sophia, and he had the vain idea of making a home video comprised of his ex-girlfriends talking about how great he is. In the end, it's the urging of Vince's best friends (which plays off the overall central theme to the show -- bonds between boys)

A funny thing happened during the previous season of "Entourage" -- it actually got good. And not "good" in the typically dumb but satisfying "Entourage" way (pool parties with Bob Saget followed by renting a Maserati, for example), but rather the stakes were raised and consequences actually meant something. That can happen when an addiction to blow and a relationship with pornstar Sasha Grey enter the picture. (For a more extensive, smarter look at last season, read GQ's Sean Fennessey's piece from last August here .)

Just because HBO received 124 Emmy nominations last week doesn't mean that the premium cable channel can't make a series that falls short of excellence. Anyone remember Mind of the Married Man or K Street? Entourage, an ensemble comedy series about four young male friends from New Jersey who suddenly find themselves sharing a Hollywood mansion and living the high life, is not nearly as misguided as K Street, the 2003 insiders' political drama, or Married Man, the 2001 sitcom which detailed the sexual fantasies of a newspaper columnist.

HOLLYWOOD -- Aquaman, one of Hollywood's hottest inside jokes, might make the move from fiction to reality. As a key plot line in HBO's Entourage, the "movie" directed by James Cameron shattered box-office records (a feat that got it a real ad in Variety), turned an unknown actor into a $20 million movie star and sparked a fight over a sequel. But now, informal talks have been launched about the feasibility of making a real Warner Bros. Aquaman movie. In one of the strangest twists of this life-imitating-art tale, the talent agent at the center of the informal Aquaman talks is Ari Emanuel, the brassy Endeavor partner on whom Entourage agent Ari Gold is based.

Fire up that DVR: Here's our picks for Friday-Sunday. FRIDAY •"NSTF:SD:SUV" (Midnight; Adult Swim): The series premiere of the show (above) that rightfully takes "CSI" and "SUV" and all those other acronym-happy programs down a peg. • "Deadly Women: Deadliest Women" (8 p.m.; ID): Not sure what exactly qualifies a deadly woman as deadlier than another, but ID is helping us out. • "20/20" (9 p.m.; WMAR/ABC): I usually don't recommend "20/20," but this episode is about people with "unusual super-powers," like a dude who can draw cityscapes from memory.

Maryland's Done Talking, ridden by Sheldon Russell, burst through in a crowded field to win the $500,000 Grade III Illinois Derby on Saturday at Hawthorne Race Course. Entering the far turn, 5-2 favorite Currency Swap began to move up taking over fifth behind the leader, 55-1 long shot Frankie Is Rock. Our Entourage (4-1) moved into second and took the lead coming off the final turn. At the top of the stretch, Our Entourage had the lead with 9-2 third choice Morgan's Guerrilla in second and the favorite racing third.

ATLANTA -- The oily agent Ari Gold in HBO's Entourage and the coked-out Vegas entertainer-cum-mobster Buddy "Aces" Israel in the movie Smokin' Aces (which opened Friday) are pure, manic energy. But Jeremy Piven, the guy who plays them both, is trying not to pass out on the table of a Midtown hotel conference room during a recent visit to Atlanta. "I don't know how rock stars do it, man," he groans, groggy, slouching forward. "Waking up really early and working all day until you get on a plane -- that's what's kind of brutal."

Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis was traveling with a large group of friends and "bodyguards" when violence erupted at an Atlanta nightspot last weekend and -- very likely -- changed his life forever. Teammates insist that he could not have been responsible for the stabbing deaths of two men outside the Cobalt Lounge, though he stands accused of both killings. His lawyer says he was just in the wrong place at the wrong time. There appears to be little doubt, however, that the crimes were carried out by someone in the Lewis entourage who attended an after-hours Super Bowl party at the club early Monday morning.
