  • ScifiMafia
The seemingly endless wait for the Syfy summer schedule is finally over! There is good news and bad, and one thing that is both good and bad. Let’s start with that: the Eureka Season Finale. We love Eureka, so every episode is good news; the fact that it’s a series finale, not so much. Mark your calendars – and have plenty of Kleenex in stock – for July 16 at 9/8c. Right after Comic-Con, which is early this year. We’ll see if that means a panel or not.

The good news: Warehouse 13 and Alphas return on July 23. The hmmm news is that Lost Girl will move to Fridays at 10 on July 20. Hey That’S Haven’S Spot. So Where The Heck Is Haven? Admittedly we had a head’s up that Haven would be pushed to fall when we learned that the DVDs for Season 2 weren’t being released until September but Argh.

Davis Pleads Guilty To Drug Charge
Mischa Barton's ex-boyfriend Brandon Davis has pleaded guilty to felony possession of cocaine following his arrest in Los Angeles earlier this year.

Police took the socialite into custody in April after they were called to a nightclub in Hollywood to investigate allegations he had punched comedian Ben Gleib in the face.

Cops searched Davis and found cocaine in his pocket, according to reports.

Last month the 31 year old entered a not guilty plea to one misdemeanour count of battery and one count of felony possession of a controlled substance.

But in court on Tuesday he pleaded guilty to the drug charge and no contest to the battery count, reports TMZ.com.

A judge has now ordered Davis to take part in a drug diversion program - and if he completes it successfully he will face no further punishment.
