Q: If the ratings for "The Big Bang Theory" stay at or above the current bar through the 2013-2014 season (final season as contracted), would you expect CBS to sign on for a few more years?
A: Absolutely. A hit the magnitude of "Big Bang" is hard to come by. The question is, will the cast be game to return? My bet is it will be.
Q: Just finished watching a fairly well-done and entertaining season of "Underemployed" on MTV. Any word on a second season?
A: An MTV publicist said no decision has been made on the show's fate. I've received no gloating emails from MTV about the show's ratings, which leads me to suspect "Underemployed" did not perform all that well and probably won't be back. Too bad. I liked "Underemployed," too.
Q: Please tell me that "Longmire" will be back for another season. What about "How to Make it in America" and "Gallery Girls"? Thank you.
A: HBO canceled "How to Make it in America" more than a year ago, but A&E renewed "Longmire" last summer and it will return with new episodes this summer.
A Bravo publicist did not respond to the question about "Gallery Girls." That non-response, coupled with no buzz for the show, makes me think "Gallery Girls" will not be renewed.
