Q: Can you tell me when the new season of "The Newsroom" will begin?
A: HBO has not yet announced a premiere date, but it's expected to be this summer, most likely in June, the same month it premiered in 2012.
Q: Do you know why the series "V'' never returned to TV?
A: "V'' was canceled for the same reason most shows are canceled: financial. In this case, "V'' did not generate sufficient ratings -- not enough viewers tuned in -- to warrant ordering additional episodes.
Q: I have watched several episodes of "Last Resort" on my DVR. I know the show has not been renewed, but I'm wondering if this one season will have some sort of resolution to the story.
A: "Last Resort" executive producer Shawn Ryan has spoken candidly about the show's cancellation and said there was time to tweak the last episode so it functioned as a series finale with closure when it aired last week.
Q: CBS and NBC have started to schedule shows at 9:01 or 10:01 that run over into the next hour. Are they doing this to increase the DVR registers of shows that follow popular shows to up the "supposed viewing" of the other shows?
A: This practice actually started about a decade ago and it was indeed done to benefit a network's ratings and as an effort to force viewers to stay tuned and reduce the risk that they may switch channels between programs. DVRs are new to the equation since the practice began, but I'm sure networks are trying to maximize their benefit when these devices are taken into consideration, too.
Q: I enjoy watching the "Shipping Wars" show on A&E. I recently noticed that Jenn's vehicle had the same company name on it as does Roy: Arbie's Team Transport.
Do they all work for Roy? If so, then why bid against each other? They seem to know each other very well in the interviews section.
A: According to the show's publicist, Jenn had temporarily worked with Roy at one point, but she is primarily an independent shipper.
