Q: Did I miss the end of Teach with Tony Danza, or did the net­work just can­cel the show? — Lori Nacht­man, Clifton, Colo.

A: A&E can­celed it. The show was los­ing view­ers weekly af­ter its Oc­to­ber pre­miere, so for its last two weeks, the net­work dou­bled up on episodes and con­cluded its run at the end of that month, rather than in mid-Novem­ber as orig­i­nally planned.

Q: Will Spenser: For Hire ever be on DVD? I bought the whole se­ries, but it turned out to be of very poor qual­ity that seemed to have been taped by some­body off tele­vi­sion. — Rhonda Scheit­erle, In­ver­ness

A: This is why we so often ad­vise against In­ter­net-only sales of com­plete se­ries sets, which often are gen­er­ated in ex­actly that way. Warner Home Video would have the rights to “of­fi­cially” re­lease the se­ries, but that hasn’t hap­pened, at least not yet.

The only of­fi­cial Spenser DVD ma­te­rial avail­able cur­rently is Spenser: The Movie Col­lec­tion, a set of ca­ble movies in which Robert Urich reprised the role af­ter the ABC se­ries had ended. Based di­rectly on sev­eral of the nov­els by Robert B. Parker, they had such ti­tles as Pale Kings and Princes and The Ju­das Goat. The set can be found for pur­chase eas­ily on the In­ter­net.

Q: Cold Case is one of my fa­vorite shows. When will new episodes re­sume? — Den­nis Mor­ris­sey, Ok­la­homa City

A: They won’t. CBS can­celed the po­lice drama star­ring Kathryn Morris last spring, but re­peats of the ex­ist­ing episodes con­tinue week­days on TNT.

Q: I’ve been won­der­ing if TV Land or Com­edy Cen­tral is go­ing to show the old Rowan & Martin’s Laugh-In shows. Any chance? — Bill Simp­son, Palm Coast

A: As we al­ways like to say, sure, there’s a chance ... just as there’s a chance that it might rain to­mor­row. How­ever, there is no con­crete proof of it, at least not at this time. In the mean­time, PBS is plan­ning a spe­cial that prob­a­bly will in­ter­est you; a Laugh-In re­union is set to air in the spring, with many of the sur­viv­ing cast mem­bers ex­pected to re­turn.
