'Extreme Makeover' is on Friday
Has Extreme Home Makeover been canceled? It is my favorite show. Also, what happened to the one in that time period, Secret Millionaire? They both do so many good things for hurting people. Sure hate to see them off the air.
You may have missed the news that Extreme Makeover: Home Edition, which used to air on Sunday night on ABC, was moved to Friday night at 8 p.m. as of Oct. 21.
The show's website is abc.go.com/shows/extreme-makeover-home-edition.
Secret Millionaire will return as a midseason series in 2012, ABC announced in June.
Departures from 'The Talk'
Last year I watched The Talk all season. I loved Leah, Sarah and Holly. Julie has quite an ego. This year, Leah and Holly are not there. Was it their decision or that CBS did not ask them back? I don't watch anymore.
No one has come out and said specifically why Leah Remini and Holly Robinson Peete were let go. Maybe producers didn't like the chemistry. Maybe someone created a lot of drama. Maybe they just thought a change was necessary.
Remini, who previously had a starring role on the sitcom King of Queens, said she was not given a reason. Peete was released shortly after Remini's departure and if she was told why, she hasn't shared it publicly. Both expressed disappointment about the decision, but thanked CBS for the opportunity.
As for Julie Chen, her husband, Leslie Moonves, is president of CBS, so her spot on the show is probably secure for as long as she wants it.
From 'Raymond' to 'The View'
Is Sherri Shepherd from The View the one who played the policewoman on Everybody Loves Raymond?
Yes. She appeared in nine episodes of the sitcom, which ran for nine seasons on CBS.
'Jeopardy' categories a surprise
Watching Jeopardy, I am always amazed at the obscure categories and answers from the contestants. Surely they have been briefed on what they can expect and they can study those subjects. Is this true?
We found this question answered by Ken Jennings, who won more than $3 million on Jeopardy. His response, from his blog (ken-jennings.com/blog):
"I don't know where people get this idea, but I get asked this all the time. No, you don't see the categories until the second the viewers at home do. And then you're like, "$#%&, 'Hockey' again?!"
'V' evil leader is 'Homeland' wife
Is the wife on Homeland the same actor who played the evil leader on V?
Yes. Morena Baccarin, who plays Jessica Brody on the Showtime drama Homeland, also played Anna in ABC's recent revival of the thriller V.
