Question: I'm totally addicted to your column it's my favorite part of the week!  Have any West Wing scoop? 

Answer: I don't, but the new issue of TV Guide magazine does. It seems exec producer John Wells is mulling a live episode during November sweeps that would tie in with a presidential debate between Jimmy Smits' Santos and Alan Alda's Vinick. I personally think they should do a live episode on Election Day that invites viewers to choose the next president via phone vote. But no one cares what I think.
