Q: A while back you mentioned that the CW channel would be putting on a version of "Whose Line Is It Anyway?" Is there any news of when this will happen? I loved the old version with Wayne Brady, Colin Mochre and Ryan Stiles.

A: "Whose Line?" returns July 16.

Q: Will they ever do a remake of "The Wild, Wild West" TV series? Or have the plans been squashed?

A: The plans announced in 2010 definitely came to naught, but that doesn't mean someone won't try it again someday. In the meantime, there's a fan-produced remake online at www.morewildwildwest.com/wp.

Q: The first couple of years on "NCIS," Gibbs had a redhead picking him up in a Mercedes; then she disappeared. There was never an explanation about who she was. Can you tell me who she was supposed to be and what happened to her?

A: Evidently this was an unresolved plot likely due to politics. Evidently the redhead was the wife of series creator Donald Bellisario. When he left the series several years ago, the redhead plot left with him and hasn't been picked up by subsequent producers.

Q: My wife and I really enjoyed the "Army Wives Alaska" show that was being aired on the OWN. It was on for four or five episodes, then just disappeared. Would it be possible for you to find out what happened?

A: The rest of the episodes aired in December. This is often what happens with low-rated cable shows: Networks yank them and then burn off all the episodes when no one is watching.

Q: What happened to "Zero Hour"?

A: "Zero Hour" was canceled after a few, low-rated episodes aired. ABC began burning off the remaining episodes on June 15.
