Question: I am a huge fan of HBO's Carnivale. When will the new season start? — Collette

Ausiello: Jan. 9, Collette. I'm trying to get HBO to donate a few copies of the first season DVD for an upcoming "Ask Ausiello" giveaway, but I think they're concerned I'll use them as Christmas gifts instead. And I'd be lying if I said the thought hadn't crossed my mind.

Question: Sorry, I didn't ...

Question: Sorry, I didn't know about the no-caps rule ("Ask Ausiello" 11/03). Here's the question again: About five years ago there was a new comedy with a popular, older male lead. The show was a hit, but after only about five episodes, the male lead suddenly died. Can you tell me who the actor was? — Lori

Ausiello: Thanks for resubmitting with your caps lock off, Lori. Much appreciated. Now for an answer to your question, I turn "Ask Ausiello" over to Daenery...

Question: Are you having any ...

Question: Are you having any luck with the Snapple Snaffle? Clearly you drink it as often as I do (if not more so), so I'm curious if you got any Wild Caps. I'm thisclose to winning a new cell phone! Best to Anita and Ivana. — Marc Robinson

Ausiello: I gave up on Snapple promotions after I spent six months collecting those red caps only to win a broken toothbrush holder. How are you supposed to regift that?

Question: I can't seem to get an answer to this question: What happened to John Jackson, the admiral on JAG? He just seems to have disappeared. Without him, the show is boring. — Frank

Question: Am I the only one ...

Question: Am I the only one who finds the voice-overs on The Apprentice to be utterly ridiculous? It is so obvious that much of what Trump is saying in the boardroom is getting dubbed in after the fact. — Kevin

Ausiello: It is laughable, isn't it? I expect this kind of shoddy production values from Bravo, but NBC? I have to wonder why Mark Burnett is resorting to voice-overs in the first place? Trump must be butchering those prefiring recaps he likes to give viewers. Maybe it's time to let Carolyn take a spin behind the wheel.

Question: Your mention of Gargamel ("Ask Ausiello" 11/03) made me laugh for .47 seconds, despite my depression/puffy eyes/exhaustion over last Tuesday's dire election results. You should feel proud. — Erin

Ausiello: I do, Erin. Oh, I do.
