The ‘Finest’ view­ing is only for some peo­ple, for now

The Fresno Bee (Sunday) - - On Tap -

Q: I’m not a Spec­trum sub­scriber. Is there any other way to watch the show “L.A.’s Finest”? – Gary Sellers, Buf­falo, N.Y.

A: Find a friend who sub­scribes to Spec­trum and in­vite your­self over. Se­ri­ously, at least for now, that ca­ble sys­tem in­tends to keep the Jes­sica Alba-Gabrielle Union police drama an ex­clu­sive “Spec­trum Orig­i­nal” of­fer­ing for it­self – just as such forth­com­ing of­fer­ings as a re­vival of the Paul Reiser-He­len Hunt sit­com “Mad About You” will be.

With that said, we’d ex­pect that with the mar­ketable names Alba and Union have, “L.A.’s Finest” even­tu­ally will get a DVD re­lease. That’s an an­cil­lary mar­ket that the show’s orig­i­nat­ing stu­dio, Sony Pic­tures, surely wouldn’t ig­nore for the ex­tra profit it can yield; it’s just a mat­ter of let­ting Spec­trum have its ex­clu­sive win­dow on the episodes first.

Q: My hus­band and I at­tended the Wil­lie Nel­son trib­ute con­cert in Nashville last Jan­uary, and it was be­ing filmed for A&E Net­work. Do you know when it will be aired? – Carolyn Mar­low, Fla­gler Beach, Fla.

A: We checked with A&E Net­work, and as of the time this col­umn was writ­ten, no air date had been set for it. How­ever, A&E also con­firmed with us that it still in­tends to show the event ... and it will have quite a cast to pro­mote when that time comes, since the show fea­tures per­for­mances by Kris Kristof­fer­son, Sh­eryl Crow, Ge­orge Strait, John Mel­len­camp, Ali­son Krauss, Vince Gill and Lee Ann Wo­mack, among others.
