TV QUES­TIONS

Q: I of­ten watch CNBC’s morn­ing show on the stock mar­ket. There used to be a fel­low there named Bill Grif­feth, whom I have not seen for a long time. Is he still with CNBC? — Daniel Weiss, Boca Ra­ton A: In Novem­ber 2009, the fi­nan­cial net­work an­nounced that Grif­feth would be tak­ing what then was planned as a one-year leave of ab­sence. No rea­son was de­tailed, other than that he would be tak­ing time for travel and other per­sonal mat­ters; as of this writ­ing, no date had been set for his re­turn to CNBC.

Q: For some rea­son, I missed all the episodes of the last year of Law & Or­der. Will they be com­ing out on DVD at any time? — Margy Barz, Port St. Lu­cie

A: They very likely will be, since Uni­ver­sal Stu­dios Home Video has been re­leas­ing sea­sons of the orig­i­nal show on a fairly reg­u­lar ba­sis. The eighth sea­son just came out in De­cem­ber ... and at one point, Uni­ver­sal skipped ahead to the 14th sea­son (back in 2004, shortly af­ter that sea­son had fin­ished air­ing on NBC). With that much of the se­ries al­ready is­sued on DVD, we ex­pect all of it will be, even­tu­ally.

Q: Is Sara Rue of Two and a Half Men the same ac­tress who did a show with Eric Roberts a few years back? — Larry Eastlick, Everett, Wash.

A: Rules of En­gage­ment ac­tu­ally is the Mon­day CBS sit­com she re­cently joined, and yes, she’s the same ac­tress who was part of the en­sem­ble cast that in­cluded Roberts in the 2002-06 ABC show Less Than Per­fect. Rue is re­united now on Rules with Pa­trick War­bur­ton, who also was on the ear­lier show; other Per­fect cast mem­bers in­cluded Zachary Levi ( Chuck), Sherri Shep­herd ( The View) and Andy Dick. The first sea­son of that se­ries is avail­able on DVD.

Q: Has the se­ries Ter­ri­ers been re­newed? —Jay Allen, Ger­man­town, Wis.

A: It hasn’t. FX an­nounced its de­ci­sion not to go for­ward with the show very shortly af­ter its first — and, as it turned out, only — sea­son ended.
