TV QUES­TIONS

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

Q: We haven’t seen our fa­vorite new show, Chase, for some time now. Please tell us it has not al­ready been can­celed. — Jim Woods, Seat­tle

A: NBC hadn’t given the Kelli Gid­dish-star­ring, Jerry Bruck­heimer-pro­duced ad­ven­ture se­ries an of­fi­cial pink slip at this writ­ing, say­ing it was merely on “hia­tus” ... but its prospects aren’t good. The rat­ings were lower than NBC had de­sired, and what re­ally sealed the deal was how much bet­ter the game show Minute to Win It per­formed in the same slot. An­other sign that Chase may be over? Costar Jesse Met­calfe has signed for a reg­u­lar role on TNT’s up­com­ing re­boot of Dal­las.

Q: I am won­der­ing if the ac­tress who played Rachel’s bi­o­log­i­cal mother on Glee is her real-life mother. — Jen­nie Mooney, Cort­land, N.Y.

A: De­spite the re­sem­blance, no ... but like Lea Michele, alias Rachel, Id­ina Men­zel is a Broad­way vet­eran. The re­al­life wife of Pri­vate Prac­tice costar Taye Diggs, she won a Tony Award for the mu­si­cal Wicked, in which she starred with fel­low re­cur­ring Glee guest star Kristin Chenoweth.

Q: About a year ago, there was a show called Find My Fam­ily, about peo­ple who were adopted look­ing for any­thing about their pasts. Is there any chance it will be back? — Marv Liss, Vero Beach

A: Not un­less an­other net­work de­cides to re­vive it. ABC de­cided against or­der­ing ad­di­tional episodes af­ter the ini­tial set aired dur­ing the 2009-10 sea­son.

Q: I re­mem­ber Bruce Camp­bell of Burn No­tice hav­ing a sit­com in the late ’80s in which he played a sher­iff. What was the name of the show, and is it avail­able on tape or DVD? — Rick Graham, Los Alami­tos, Calif.

A: It ac­tu­ally was the mid-’90s (the 1993-94 sea­son, to be ex­act), and the se­ries was the Fox ac­tion-saga-with-hu­mor The Ad­ven­tures of Brisco County Jr., in which Camp­bell played a bounty hunter who got into all sorts of scrapes. The com­plete se­ries was re­leased in a DVD set by Warner Home Video in 2006.
