Question: So cruel to mislead poor readers into thinking "Shhh" is the pronunciation of CCH Pounder's name (Ask Ausiello 5/18) instead of telling them the truth: CCH stands for Carol Christine Hilaria Pounder. So cruel. Jen
Ausiello: You're still getting it wrong, Jen. It's not "Shhh" it's "Shh." The first "C" is silent. Now try again.
Question: Your AA cliff-hanger endings must stop! First the Gilmore Girls, then the Spike movie. Are you that insecure about us returning? Martin
Ausiello: It's just a sweeps thing, Marty. We'll get back to self-contained episodes starting next week.
Question: Little confused. You reported last week that Arrested Development is being bounced from Sunday to Monday for the first half of the season but then what? Martin
Ausiello: That also falls under TBD. I can only assume it'll end up replacing one of Fox's canceled shows.
Question: Are you going to do any more Podcasts? They're like AA... with voices! James
Ausiello: Yeah after a brief hiatus, the TVGuide.com Podcast is back! Click here for another sneak preview. And stay tuned for news about our Podcast's official launch soon.
Question: AA is becoming like a mini-24 episode. Every column ends with a cliff-hanger. I can't wait for next week! Oriane
Ausiello: Even better, the previews don't ruin all the big plot twists!
Question: You are a god! Now that I've got your attention, what do you think Hugh Laurie's chances of being nominated for an Emmy are? Chris
Ausiello: I'd put them at around 90 percent. And don't forget next week we release our (mostly my) fourth annual Dream Emmy Ballot! I can't wait to find out what you guys think of our (mostly my) picks!
Question: Why didn't The Commuters, with Jeri Ryan, make it on CBS' fall schedule? Mark
Ausiello: According to my spies at CBS, the pilot was good but not good enough. Remember, this is the network that brought you Center of the Universe, so the bar has been set pretty high.
Question: So what is up with the totally lame Grey's Anatomy opening credits? I love the show, especially cute Patrick Dempsey, but the opening credits don't even match the show's themes. Can you pass on to ABC how totally lame it is? Heather
Ausiello: Consider it passed.
Question: Who is at the door in the season finale of Veronica Mars? Amanda
Ausiello: Only exec producer Rob Thomas knows for sure. "I don't even know," Kristen Bell told us at UPN's upfront. "They haven't told us yet." Adds her costar Teddy Dunn (Duncan): "I don't know anything about next season. All I know is that the first scene will reveal who's at the door."
