in TV Questions Answered

Update 4-26-2007: Find out what is going on with Men in Trees and the Thursday night lineup on ABC.
Update 5-5-2008: Has Men in Trees been cancelled?

Today we have one question sent in via email and six others that were searched for recently. I am looking for a little help with the question of what was playing on Abby’s iPod during the Thanksgiving night episode of ER. The other questions with answers were people wondering if the TV show Men in Trees had been cancelled, who played the pregnant woman on Two and a Half Men a couple of weeks ago, who plays Barb on The New Adventures of Old Christine, whether or not Prison Break had its final episode, if The King of Queens is coming back and how many brothers and sisters Alec Baldwin has.

Rachel asked: On the 11/23/06 episode of ER, What song was playing on Abby’s iPod???? Please help. It’s driving me crazy!!
This question was emailed in right after last week’s episode of ER. Unfortunately this is one show I don’t watch anymore and even though it was a special, Abby saves a person on a bus about to fall over a cliff, episode I didn’t watch it or record it and NBC doesn’t have full episode replays of ER at its Rewind site and I haven’t been able to find a reference to the scene she is asking about online anywhere, as of yet. So, I don’t have the foggiest idea what the song was and am asking for help on this one. If anybody out there watched the “Scoop and Run” episode of ER on Thanksgiving night and knows what the song was, Rachel would very much appreciate it and so would I because there are enough crazy people out there as it is. We don’t need another one driven there.

Who played the pregnant woman Naomi on Two and a Half Men?
The actress who played Naomi, the pregnant daughter of Berta, on Two and a Half Men was Sara Rue. You may remember her as the lead on the ABC sitcom Less than Perfect or before that, as one of the “Glamazons” on the short-lived show Popular on The WB.

Who plays Barb on the TV show The New Adventures of Old Christine?
Christine’s friend, and now partner in the women’s gym, Barb is played by Wanda Sykes. You may have seen her doing stand-up comedy or as Larry David’s wife Cheryl’s friend Wanda on the HBO show Curb Your Enthusiasm or as the personal assistant to Jane Fonda’s character in the movie Monster-in-Law.

Does the final episode of Prison Break come on tonight?
This question was searched for on Monday, which makes the answer a sort of yes. Sort of, as in, it was the final episode until the show returns Monday, January 22nd for the remainder of the second season. It was originally schedule to come back in early March but FOX has decided to move the return date up a few weeks. You can see the episode again, or the two before that, at the FOX TV section of MySpace. For access to the whole season or you can download episodes at Amazon Unbox or Apple iTunes.

Is The King of Queens coming back for another season?
Yes, The King of Queens returns to CBS on Wednesday, December 6th and will take over the timeslot of Jericho after it bows out for a few weeks and returns on February 14th to play the rest of the season straight through without repeats like Prison Break and Lost are also doing. I wish they would just put this back on Monday nights in place of the mostly unfunny The Class.

How many brothers and sisters does Alec Baldwin have?
According to his IMDb bio page he has three brothers: William Baldwin, Stephen Baldwin and Daniel Baldwin and two sisters: Jane Sasso and Elizabeth Keuchler.

Has the TV show Men in Trees been cancelled?
No, Men in Trees has not been cancelled. In fact, ABC has picked it up for the season. However, it will no longer be on Friday nights, as of this Thursday it moves to its new timeslot after Grey’s Anatomy.

I beg to disagree with your snide comment on the CBS comedy “The Class”.
Have you seen it recently? It has turned into one of the smartest written, best acted shows of this or any season. The characters are all unique and quirky and much more than “mostly unfunny” as you bitchily suggest. In fact, the ratings back me up. The show retains 89% of HIMYM and holds onto it’s numbers much more than ” Old Christine”. Last week it got it’s higest ratings since moving to 8:30, while the critic’s darling “UGLY BETTY” continues to slide. Stop bashing it and give “THE CLASS” another try. You’ll be pleasantly surprised.

Hey Gregory, to each their own, I guess. I have actually seen every episode of The Class. What I haven’t done is laugh much while doing so. Yes, the show has improved since it debuted but not much. Of the new comedies to premiere this season The Class is a middle of the road sitcom, as it is neither ‘Til Death bad nor 30 Rock good.

I beg to differ on your assertion that The Class is smartly written. The Office is smartly written. Arrested Development was smartly written. This I would not classify that way at all.

Also, while ratings are what the networks use to choose whether or not to keep a show on the air, I would disagree that because a show is doing decently ratings wise and keeping a high percentage of its lead in that it is a good show. By that logic you would have to say that last season’s Courting Alex and Out of Practice must have been really good. They did really well ratings wise and kept much of Two and a Half Men’s audience. Yet when they were moved away from their cushy timeslot they disappeared quite quickly, as nobody watched them. Plenty of people these days seem to be watching Dancing with the Stars, Dateline NBC, Deal or No Deal, Ghost Whisperer and other shows but I wouldn’t consider any of them to be great television either.

Men In Trees was done so beautifully and the cast was terrific. Don’t let it go. Smart, wonderful writing, great acting from talented actors. I love it and looked forward to it after Grey’s A. Now you have a nightime soap. Poop!
I am disappointed with ABC for cancelling the very funny, charming and indearing cast. Bring it back!!!!

5 Christy March 23, 2007 at 9:42 am

When is the next episode of Men In Trees coming on if they’re not cancelled.

9 Jason the TVaholic April 4, 2007 at 5:05 pm

Donald, the next episode of Men in Trees in presently not scheduled, but it looks like it might return the first Thursday in May. As of now, ABC is going to debut the new comedy Notes from the Underbelly on Thursday, April 12th after Grey’s Anatomy. Then they will play the last two episodes of October Road on the next two Thursday nights. That will close out the month of April.

I looked forward to watching “Men In Trees.” It hasn’t been on after Grey’s Anatomy. I would like to see it back on ABC.

12 Douglas Greer May 8, 2007 at 4:16 pm

Why was Men in Trees cancelled by ABC?? It was a super show. I would have thought another station would have picked it up with the high ratings that it had.

Thank You

13 Jason the TVaholic May 8, 2007 at 4:57 pm

Douglas, ABC hasn’t cancelled Men in Trees, they just didn’t finish playing the rest of this season’s episodes. They have already announced the show will be back for a second season. We will find out next week when and where it will be on, come Fall 2007.
