Q: Has "Army Wives" been renewed? If so, what channel and day and time is it on?
A: Lifetime has renewed "Army Wives" for a new season, but no announcement about a premiere date has been made. My guess is it will be spring.
Q: Any info on whether or not USA's "Political Animals" from last summer will return next year? We really enjoyed it this year.
A: Sorry, it won't be back. USA canceled the show
Q: Just wondering what is your take on "House of Cards"? From your professional experience do you think it will be very much like R-rated cable shows on HBO and Starz in terms of content to attract subscribers?
A: Yes, I do think Netflix wants its series to compete with the quality dramas on HBO, Showtime and AMC. I never saw the British series the show is based on but the American version shows some promise.
Q: Today's cable-TV packages contain all sorts of channels that I don't really want to pay for, but the cable operator bundles them in anyway. Do you think we'll get to a place where subscribers can choose just the channels we want to see/pay for, and if so, do you think that time is soon? I'd love to cut my cable bill but don't want to chop off entire "tiers of service" to do it.
A: I'm of two minds on this one.
On the one hand, I would love not to have to subsidize channels I never, ever watch. But I understand that if not for those channels being bundled with channels that I do like that draw a lot fewer viewers, those channels with fewer viewers would cease to exist. More choice would be nice, but maybe not if it would decimate niche channels.
