TV QUES­TIONS

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

Q: Why is Dave Ram­sey no longer on Fox Busi­ness Net­work? — Mau­rene Miller, Stu­art

A: The net­work can­celed the pay-cashonly-fa­vor­ing fi­nan­cial ex­pert’s pro­gram last June, then gave the week­night prime-time hour he’d had to ex-trader Eric Bolling, who had ap­peared on ri­val busi­ness net­work CNBC pre­vi­ously. Ram­sey’s con­tract with Fox News ex­pired later in 2010. Q: Will there be an­other Star Trek movie with Chris Pine? — Judy Hark­ness, Ma­ri­etta, Ohio

A: There will, but the ques­tion is ex­actly when it will reach the­aters. In March, Pine — who is set to reprise the role of the younger James Kirk — said he had a draft of the script for the se­quel but added that no film­ing date had been set. That largely has re­volved around the avail­abil­ity of film­maker J.J. Abrams, who wanted to get his new thriller Su­per 8 launched first.

Ini­tially, Para­mount Pic­tures hoped to have the movie in the­aters one year from now as one of the stu­dio’s big sum­mer 2012 of­fer­ings. The good news is that yes, it’s com­ing; the not-so-good-atthe-mo­ment news is that it will de­pend on when pro­duc­tion be­gins.

Q: Will Paget Brewster be back in fu­ture episodes of Crim­i­nal Minds — Pat Per­ille, Al­go­nquin, Ill. A: She will. Brewster had made a com­edy pilot for NBC, My Life as an Ex­per­i­ment, which ul­ti­mately wasn’t picked up. That left her free to go back to CBS as Be­hav­ioral Anal­y­sis Unit mem­ber Emily Pren­tiss on Crim­i­nal Minds, if all the nec­es­sary par­ties were amenable to her re­turn there. They were, and over the Me­mo­rial Day hol­i­day week­end, it was an­nounced that Brewster will re­turn to the mys­tery se­ries’ cast come fall.

Q: I love Par­ent­hood, and I am hear­ing ru­mors that it may be taken off the air. Please say it isn’t so. — Gerry Dean, Lake­land

A: Since you asked, OK ... it isn’t so. For its third sea­son, the NBC com­e­dy­drama will re­main in the slot that closes out the Tues­day prime-time lineup.
