TV QUES­TIONS

The Palm Beach Post - TV Post - - Front Page - By JAY BOB­BIN

Q: Could you tell me if my fa­vorite sum­mer shows — Riz­zoli & Isles, Covert Af­fairs and Scoundrels — will be back? — Beth Byrne, Steep Falls, Maine A: We can say “yes” on two out of three. The first two were re­newed by their re­spec­tive net­works (the Angie Har­mon and Sasha Alexan­der-star­ring Riz­zoli by TNT and the Piper Per­abo-star­ring Covert by USA) be­fore their ini­tial runs ended, and the sec­ond sea­sons for both likely will start next sum­mer. The news isn’t as happy for Scoundrels, since ABC de­cided against or­der­ing a sec­ond sea­son.

Q: I’m hop­ing The Glades will be back. Can you let me know? — Liz Greene, Welling­ton

A: Yes, we can, and yes, it will. It’s no shock that A&E Net­work re­newed the show, since the Florida-based crime saga’s de­but set a rat­ings record for an orig­i­nal dra­matic se­ries on the net­work. Ex­pect the new episodes to be­gin run­ning next sum­mer.

Q: I heard a ru­mor that Jeff Gold­blum was leav­ing Law & Or­der: Crim­i­nal In­tent. Is that true, and if so, why? — Arthur Dubeau, Woonsocket, R.I.

A: It’s more than a ru­mor. The ac­tor’s two-year con­tract for the show was up, and since there was no def­i­nite word at the time about the USA Net­work/NBC show con­tin­u­ing, he de­cided to move on ... re­port­edly with no ill will on ei­ther side. Since then, Vin­cent D’Onofrio and Kathryn Erbe have agreed to re­turn as po­lice part­ners Goren and Eames for a fi­nal sea­son an­tic­i­pated to be­gin in the spring.

Q: I en­joyed Monk. What is Tony Shal­houb up to these days? — Grace Je­mal, Oak Har­bor, Wash.

A: Af­ter eight sea­sons of mak­ing the show, Shal­houb throt­tled back a bit, but he’s start­ing to get pro­fes­sion­ally ac­tive again. He’s sup­ply­ing one of the voices for next year’s an­i­mated Dis­ney-Pixar se­quel Cars 2, and he’s also been cast op­po­site such no­ta­bles as Wil­liam Hurt and James Woods in HBO’s forth­com­ing project Too Big to Fail, about the roots of the U.S. eco­nomic cri­sis.
