Question: I heard that Fox canceled its freshmen sitcoms Dads, Enlisted and Surviving Jack! While I never watched and didn't care for Dads, I did watch (and loved!) both Enlisted and Surviving Jack. What puzzles me about the cancellations of all of these shows were that their ratings performed with the same numbers that Fox's other sitcoms New Girl, The Mindy Project and Brooklyn Nine-Nine, yet those shows all got renewed for another season! Why is it that The Powers That Be at Fox would cancel three shows that had the same low (or modest) ratings as the other three shows that got picked up for another year? It doesn't really make sense with me! - Chris

Question: Just wondering if you've heard anything about or seen the pilot of FX's adaptation of Fargo yet? Obviously it's too early to tell, but just from the previews and the looks of the cast, it seems to me like it could be in contention for a few Emmys later this year? — Kevin

Person of Interest: Is This Fusco's Moment?

Kevin Chapman, Jim Caviezel

Person of Interest fans were stunned in November when the CBS drama killed off original cast member Taraji P. Henson's Detective Carter. But no one took it harder than her castmates. 

"I really miss working with Taraji," Kevin Chapman, who plays Carter's partner Detective Lionel Fusco, tells TVGuide.com. "She was very gracious, and we just really connected. We had a lot of fun. We'd go to basketball games together and dinners. I really miss having her around."

Question: I've decided it's time to ask you how would you like to see Sandra Oh (Cristina Yang) leave Grey's Anatomy. This might come up more often as the season nears an end in May, but I can't stop thinking about it. While I love Cristina and aspire to be as fierce as she is, I think they should kill her off, but not in a mean way — in a way that could build a great emotional arc for Kevin McKidd (Owen). I think they should have one more romp in the sack where she gets pregnant and he convinces her to keep the baby this time, only to lose Cristina during the birth! I know I sound all evil genius right now, but I think that would give Owen more issues than he can handle and I think it will bring all those close to Cristina (especially Meredith) to a level of respecting Cristina's initial decision to never have kids. Just my thoughts. I think her exit will be flawless. Shonda Rhimes is a TV goddess and I'm sure will make us all proud. — Erica

[WARNING: The following story contains major spoilers from Tuesday's episode of Person of Interest. Read at your own risk.]

The brain trust behind Person of Interest promised a hero would fall — it just wasn't exactly the hero some might have expected.

Although the promos for the CBS drama's three-part "Endgame" trilogy heavily suggested that Kevin Chapman's Fusco wouldn't make it out alive, Tuesday's episode pulled a switcheroo... read more
