Q&A: Jimmy Fallon not stuck on brown suits

Color isn't an issue with suits

What is with the emphasis on brown suits on Jimmy Fallon's show? His announcer always wears brown and Jimmy invariably wears brown or some related shade. That's so noticeable and very odd! Why is that?

An Internet search and past phone calls reveal that you aren't the only one with this question or perception, but the show's NBC publicist says there is no emphasis on brown suits: "Jimmy wears a variety of colors including brown, but more regularly wears navy, charcoal, medium gray or black."

'Dallas' survives Hagman's death

Now that Larry Hagman has died, what happens to Dallas?

J.R. Ewing is gone, but TNT has renewed the series revival for a third season of 15 episodes, to air sometime in 2014.

'Runway' auctions outfits

What happens to all the outfits on Project Runway? It used to be that the winning and losing outfits of each round were kept in the workroom to act as inspiration or warning to the surviving designers. Now, I don't see them. Do the designers get to keep the looks they make after the season is over, or does the show? Do the models get to take home what they like from their designer? Are the outfits recycled somehow, or is there a warehouse somewhere with Project Runway leftovers?

The outfits are auctioned off each week after an episode airs via this online site:

No decision on 'Black Gold'

I am a big fan of Black Gold, which aired on TruTV. The program recorded the apparently true daily life of an oil-well drilling crew in West Texas. Will it return later this year?

According to a TruTV representative, the last show was simply the end of the season. No decision has been made about renewing or canceling the show.

'Longmire' returning May 27

Has a return date been set for Longmire?

Yes, Monday, May 27, on A&E, at 10 p.m. after the return of Glades at 9 p.m.

'Being Human' set for last season

Are there any plans for Being Human to return on BBC America?

The show will be back for its final, six-episode season on Saturday, June 8, at 10 p.m.

'Most Wanted' likely done

Is America's Most Wanted off the air permanently?

Lifetime canceled the show in March after two seasons. It had picked up the show starring John Walsh when Fox canceled it after 23 seasons.
