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

Q: What can you tell me about Carmine Giov­inazzo of CSI: NY? Is he mar­ried? Is he from New York? Has he ever done any­thing be­sides CSI: NY? — Laura Doe­nias, Fresh Mead­ows, N.Y. A: Giov­inazzo has a fa­mous spouse, Vanessa Mar­cil Giov­inazzo ... alias Brenda on the ABC day­time se­rial Gen­eral Hos­pi­tal. The ac­tor is in­deed a New York na­tive, hav­ing been born and raised on Staten Is­land. He did a num­ber of other projects be­fore get­ting the part of De­tec­tive Danny Messer. He played the first vic­tim in the tele­vi­sion ver­sion of Buffy the Vam­pire Slayer, and he por­trayed the last vic­tim in the re­cently de­ceased Peter Falk’s se­ries of Columbo TV movies (specif­i­cally, in Columbo Likes the Nightlife).

Q: Army Wives on Life­time seemed to be over sooner this year than it was in pre­vi­ous sea­sons. Can you tell me when this past sea­son started and ended? — Judy Voll­rath, Racine, Wis.

A: It be­gan March 6 and ended June 12, en­com­pass­ing 13 episodes ... which, you’re cor­rect, was shorter than pre­vi­ous sea­sons that av­er­aged just un­der 20 episodes. The best ad­vice is sim­ply to en­joy it for as much as there is of it, since next year, the show’s sixth and fi­nal sea­son also will be 13 episodes long. Q: I have en­joyed watch­ing HawthoRNe and have en­joyed Suleka Mathew’s char­ac­ter, Bob­bie. Is she a para­plegic? — Karl Orth, Aurora, Colo.

A: We as­sume you’re ask­ing if the ac­tress is, and the an­swer is no. Bob­bie’s pros­thetic leg is for dra­matic pur­poses as part of the char­ac­ter’s back story on the TNT med­i­cal drama.

Q: ABC had a show called Prime­time: What Would You Do? and it just dis­ap­peared off the net­work. Will it be back? — Chris Dick, Elkridge, Md.

A: You might have hit a cou­ple of weeks when it wasn’t on, but the se­ries has been part of ABC’s Fri­day night lineup this sum­mer. Not only does it get solid rat­ings for the net­work, it con­stantly gives host John Quinones talk­ing points for other ABC News broad­casts when he ap­pears on them to pro­mote his show.
