Question: When is Chloe coming back to 24? I miss her! Makenzi
Ausiello: Just 5 hours, 12 minutes, 19 seconds to go. Beep... beep... beep...
Question: Ask Ausiello is the first thing I read every Wednesday. OK, it's the only thing I read on Wednesdays. Anyway, I heard a rumor that Henry Winkler will be producing a Knots Landing reunion like the one that Dallas recently did. Any news about that? Chris
Ausiello: It's in the discussion stage, yes. I'm guessing it'll air during May sweeps.
Question: What TV shows do you think should be be put out of their misery? Elizabeth
Ausiello: Oh, where to begin... I know Queer as Folk! Other stick-fork-worthy programs include The Bachelor/Bachelorette, Quintuplets, Listen Up and the original Law & Order.
Question: With David James Elliott leaving, is JAG gonna leave us hanging with Mac and Harm? I have watched this show since the beginning and I need closure! Lori
Ausiello: You'll get your closure. Hallelujah!
Question: How come Mariska Hargitay and Chris Meloni so often work their cases separately this season on SVU? Trouble on the set? Rob
Ausiello: Nope. Splitting them up allows producers to shoot two episodes at the same time (aka "tandem episodes"), one with Hargitay as the lead detective and the other with Meloni. But I agree, this practice is getting way out of hand this season. BTW, did anyone see my apartment building on last night's SVU?
Question: Did Keri have anything to say about her upcoming movie, The Upside of Anger? I can't wait to see it! B
Ausiello: Let me browse through my Keri transcript and see what I can find... Felicity, J.J., Magic, Scott, digits... oh, here's something: "I play one of four daughters to Joan Allen. I'm kind of the confrontational one who's always fighting with her. Our dad takes off and it's the next four years of our life... The movie turned out OK. It kind of got edited into a different movie than it really was. It was written as this very dark comedy our mother is terrible but I guess it was testing too harsh, so they kind of of pulled it back a little bit. But I'm going to Sundance for it, so I don't care!" That's my Keri!
Question: Tell me honestly: What do you think the chances are of WB doing a Spike TV movie? Renee
Ausiello: While I have her on the phone, let me ask Ms. Hannigan: "That's a great idea. I just talked to somebody today who was saying, 'Why don't they do a Spike movie?' That's who they should do forget Angel or Buffy! Do the James Marsters movie. That would be huge. He's bigger than anybody!" No argument here.
Question: I love Project Runway and was wondering if there will be another season? Luc
Ausiello: Believe it or not, no decision has been made. I can't imagine why, since it's the only Bravo show generating any buzz these days. Speaking of which, I have a confession to make: I'm the one who defaced the picture of Wendy's daughter. I'm sorry, but someone had to do it.
Question: What are your thoughts on the Alex-Marissa pairing on The O.C.? Sabrina
Ausiello: Let's put it this way: I'm actually starting to like Marissa. And that's no small feat.
Question: What happened to the UPN sitcom Second Time Around? Bree
Ausiello: UPN only ordered 13 episodes of the show, and all 13 have aired. The network has an option for a second season, but don't look for them to exercise it. The ratings sorta sucked.
