Q: Tom Berg­eron is so funny on Danc­ing With the Stars and Amer­ica’s Fun­ni­est Home Videos. What’s his back­ground? — Ruth Stevens, Boca Ra­ton

A: Orig­i­nally a ra­dio and tele­vi­sion per­son­al­ity in his na­tive New Eng­land, Berg­eron got his first na­tional ex­po­sure when FX got into the week­day morn­ing show game with Break­fast Time ... which was con­verted into Fox Af­ter Break­fast on the Fox net­work and didn’t last very long once it got there.

Af­ter his first stop at ABC, as a Good Morn­ing Amer­ica guest host, Berg­eron presided over a syn­di­cated re­vival of Hol­ly­wood Squares and earned an Emmy for it. While he was still do­ing that, Home Videos beck­oned, and he re­placed Bob Saget in a job he con­tin­ues along with Danc­ing With the Stars, which be­gan for him in 2005.

Q: Is is true that Clint East­wood is do­ing a re­al­ity se­ries? — Jim Pow­ell, Colum­bus, Ohio

A: No, but his wife is. Mrs. East­wood & Com­pany, fea­tur­ing the movie icon’s ex-news­caster wife, Dina, and their daugh­ters, pre­mieres­may 20 on E! En­ter­tain­ment Tele­vi­sion. While East­wood has given his bless­ing to the project, it’s un­likely he’ll ap­pear in it very of­ten, be­ing as busy as he is with his own ca­reer. That said, there’s lit­tle doubt E! would love for himto pop in as of­ten as he might want to.

Q: Does Show­time plan to run any new episodes of Home­land? And if so, when? — Bar­bara Piotrowski, Franklin, Wis.

A: It cer­tainly does, since the Claire DanesDamian Lewis drama has been one of the most talked- about se­ries this sea­son. Sept. 30 al­ready is set as the date when Sea­son 2 will be­gin ... and that’s the same night that an­other po­tent Show­time hit, Dex­ter, re­turns for its Sea­son 7.

Q: Will Rookie Blue be back this sum­mer? — Rich Johns, Glen Burnie, Md.

A: It will. ABC is start­ing it a bit ear­lier this time, with Sea­son 3 of the Cana­dian-pro­duced po­lice drama set to be on the show’s now-tra­di­tional Thurs­day night be­gin­ning May 24. Mon­treal na­tive Wil­liam Shat­ner guest stars in the first new episode.
