Question: I was wondering if you have seen Fox's Americanized version of BBC America's Broadchurch, now called Gracepoint? I watched the BBC America miniseries and therefore I already know who did it. Now I am sure the American version will have a different person, but how different can these shows really be? Even David Tennant is in it, playing the part he played on Broadchurch. Your thoughts? — Amy

The Secrets of the Primetime Emmy Telecast, By the Numbers

Seth Meyers

It's crunch time for Primetime Emmys executive producer Don Mischer. The live TV veteran and his production partners Charlie Haykel and Juliane Hare face a daunting task on Aug. 25: Hand out 26 awards (more than most televised awards shows), give host Seth Meyers room to shine, keep the show entertaining and make sure it ends in three hours.

"On any live show, you can work on it for three years and the last month you work around the clock," Mischer says of the frenzy in the past few weeks to finalize this year's show, which airs Monday on NBC at 8/7c and 5 p.m. on the West Coast. "A lot of things aren't decided until the last few weeks."

Thursday TV: Rectify Finale, Simpsons Marathon

Rectify

The upcoming fall season will be lucky to generate even a fraction as many hits as this unusually busy TV summer produced, a list of keepers that includes Outlander, The Strain, The Knick, The Last Ship, Undateable, to name just a few. (Even something as underwhelming as AMC's Halt and Catch Fire, which didn't, has been renewed by its increasingly desperate network, and I'm hoping for good news about the future of WGN America's Manhattan and WE's The Divide.)

Robin Williams, Sarah Michelle Gellar

Send questions and comments to askmatt@tvguidemagazine.com and follow me on Twitter!

Question: With the passing of the legendary TV talents Robin Williams and James Garner, don't you think it would be remiss if the upcoming Emmys didn't do a clips tribute to both of them? Awards shows have an unfortunate habit of dedicating chunks of time to a theme or subject that either makes no sense or ends up really boring. But these two gentlemen, who broke character boundaries and were excellent actors outside their niche personas, deserve special recognition. I just hope the producers of that upcoming show have the smarts to do something special, outside of the "In Memoriam" roll call. Your thoughts? — Karen
