Q: I am a fan of "Covert Affairs" on USA on Tuesdays. Could you please tell me where the on-site locations are filmed this year?
A: In addition to the show's home base in Toronto, "Covert Affairs" also taped scenes this season in Rome, Geneva, Copenhagen, the Bahamas, Medellin, Colombia, and Hong Kong.
Q: Have "Crossing Lines," ''Graceland" and "King & Maxwell" been renewed?
A: My expectation is that, due to ratings, "Crossing Lines" and "King & Maxwell" will be canceled. "Graceland" was renewed by USA Network earlier this month.
Q: I saw a recent question about "Pawn Stars," which brought to mind MY question about "Pawn Stars": Who IS Chumlee? Was he left on the Harrisons' front porch in a basket as an infant? Did someone pawn him and never return??
A: Per "Pawn Stars" star Rick Harrison, "Chumlee and Corey were good friends growing up. They didn't get along at first, but then formed a friendship that goes beyond just friends. We sort of unofficially adopted Chum into our family. He has celebrated holidays with us and has worked for us for years."
Q: Our household subscribes to DirecTV. We were enjoying a channel on DirecTV called CineMoi. It suddenly vanished from DirecTV's schedule without an explanation several weeks ago. What happened? CineMoi had vintage movies with excellent in-depth commentary on the movie world that made for very interesting interviews. Also, up-to-the-minute couture fashion moments were included in the schedule. It was a welcome respite from what plays presently on broadcast and other cable sites.
A: Reports suggest there was a kerfuffle between CineMoi and DirecTV that resulted in CineMoi getting dropped less than a year after it was added to the DirecTV lineup. Per a DirecTV spokeswoman, "We discontinued carriage under the terms of our agreement and have no plans to return the channel to our lineup."
Q: Can you please find out if CW canceled "Oh Sit!"? This answer will determine the winner of a TV "death" pool.
A: Looks like the collection of a prize in your contest will have to wait. A CW rep says the show's fate is still up in the air.
Q: Why hasn't the movie "Brothers" with Tobey Maguire and Jake Gyllenhall ever been shown on TV?
A: I suspect it probably has aired at least on premium cable, but I have no way of proving or disproving that because TV listings only show what's airing in the next two weeks, not what has aired. It does look like it probably has aired on premium channel Epix, which has limited distribution. I'd just try to borrow it from a library, find someplace to stream it or buy a used DVD copy for $.75 on Half.com.
Q: When will "White Collar" be starting, and how many episodes will there be for this half of their season?
A: The 13-episode new season premieres Oct. 17.
