Numbers Rips from Headlines! Plus: A Northern Exposure Reunion

Rob Morrow and Teri Polo, Numbers

Though there are wives aplenty, there's no "big love" in sight on tonight's Numbers (10 pm/ET, on CBS). The polygamy here is definitely not HBO-style, with its separate-but-equal housing and cuddling. "It's a ripped-from-the headlines episode spun off the case of Warren Jeffs, who was on the FBI's Most Wanted List and has dozens of underage wives," explains executive producer Cheryl Heuton. (Jeffs, who was indicted on charges of conspiracy to commit sexual misconduct with a minor in Arizona and charged with rape as an accomplice in Utah, was recently captured.) In the episode, a severely beaten teen girl found wandering in the desert sends FBI agent Don Eppes ( read more

What was the show called that ...

Question: What was the show called that featured a teacher going out with an actress? The theme song was Joe Jackson's "Is She Really Going Out with Him?"


Answer: Actually, to be a nitpicker (which is, after all, what I do), it was Sugar Ray's rendition of Mr. Jackson's far-superior version of that song.

Anyhow, you're thinking of the short-lived I'm with Her, which debuted on ABC in September 2003. Based on creator Chris Henchy's relationship with real-life wife Brooke Shields, it focused on a high-school teacher (David Sutcliffe) who finds himself romantically involved with a star (Teri Polo) and the zany complications such a situation brought about. Problem was, he wasn't with her for long. The show was gone the following April.

The West Wing In an eerie bit...

The West WingIn an eerie bit of synchronicity, tonight's West Wing focused on Leo McGarry, just three weeks after the sudden death of actor John Spencer. While I assumed there would be a special intro mentioning his passing, I was unprepared for how moved I was by Martin Sheen's words. Johnny, we hardly knew ya, indeed. This episode was a fitting tribute, a reminder of all the splendid work Spencer has done over the years. From playing the usually unflappable Leo as vulnerable and self-doubting in the beginning of the debate prep, to the inevitable revelation that he was leaking bad reports on himself to the press because he knew Josh wouldn't — it was classic Leo. (By the way, for my money, the greatest Leo moment in the history of the series: "So a guy's walking down read more

If anyone can answer my ...

Question: If anyone can answer my question, you can. Back in high school my teacher was always talking about this show that aired in the late '80s about a group of high-school students who put together a news program at their school. Please tell me what show this is, and if there are any episodes out on DVD. Thank you.


Answer: Your teacher was talking about TV 101, a short-lived CBS drama in which Sam Robards, a former TV-news photographer, returned to his old high school to teach a class how to put together a weekly news show about the goings-on in their school. His old journalism teacher (Emilie Walker) was able to talk him into taking the job when he was looking for a new career, but the crusty school principal (Leon Russom), with whom Robards had butted heads in his student days, was always on his case. Among the students in Robards' class were Stacey Dash, Alex Desert, Teri Polo and fu read more
