TV QUES­TIONS

Q: What hap­pened to the pro­gram Ex­tra with Mario Lopez? — Betty Wallen, Stu­art

A: The en­ter­tain­ment mag­a­zine show re­mains in pro­duc­tion and is seen around the coun­try. If it isn’t ap­pear­ing in your area, that’s be­cause none of the lo­cal sta­tions cur­rently have the rights to it. That’s the na­ture of syn­di­ca­tion; an in­di­vid­ual sta­tion has to buy and air the se­ries, rather than it be­ing pro­vided to many sta­tions that all sched­ule it at the same time via a net­work.

Q: Can you tell me if there are any plans for more of the Dam­ages se­ries? — John Howe, Gar­den City, N.Y.

A: As men­tioned here pre­vi­ously, two more sea­sons of Glenn Close’s for­mer FX drama se­ries have been or­dered by the satel­lite ser­vice DirecTV. They will be shown there ex­clu­sively; no start dates have been set yet.

Q: Months ago, I watched a show called Who Do You Think You Are? sev­eral times. Dif­fer­ent celebri­ties fol­lowed their roots back a num­ber of gen­er­a­tions. Will it be on again this sea­son? — Kath­leen Cra­gun, Is­saquah, Wash. A: Yes, it will be back for a sec­ond round start­ing Jan. 21. Friends alumna Lisa Kudrow is the ex­ec­u­tive pro­ducer of the show; the first sea­son’s episodes took her on a jour­ney through her ge­neaol­ogy and did the same for Brooke Shields, Su­san Saran­don, and spouses Sarah Jes­sica Parker and Matthew Brod­er­ick.

Q: Is CSI: Mi­ami in trou­ble, maybe about to be can­celed? Since it moved to Sun­day, I have not been able to record the pro­gram; it al­ways comes on late. — Grady Ste­wart, San An­to­nio

A: It’s not on the verge of can­cel­la­tion at this writ­ing, but ad­mit­tedly, foot­ball over­runs haven’t made sched­ul­ing easy for David Caruso’s CBS crime drama. On one re­cent Sun­day, the prime-time lineup was shifted so late by foot­ball cov­er­age, that evening’s sched­uled CSI: Mi­ami episode was scrapped com­pletely. The sit­u­a­tion is bound to im­prove once the NFL sea­son ends.
