Question: Happy new year! I know this was from a few weeks ago, but my friends and I are dying to know which Heroes couple is having issues. Is it Adrian Pasdar and Rena Sofer? I know you can't say yes out of fear of brain mutilation, so how about you just tell me if it isn't?

Answer: It isn't.

That does it for this week. Sorry for the abbreviated post-holiday column, but the tumbleweed-to-scoop ratio in Hollywood is hovering around 10-1 these days (as if Medium's rare cameo this week wasn't enough of a clue of that). If you'd like to discuss the first AA of '07 or simply accuse me of slacking off head on over to the Ausiello Report and sound off with other TV freaks like yourself. See ya next week!
