Question: Do you have any information on Life Is Wild? I read on another website that it got canceled.

Answer: I'm hearing the cast has been informed that it's over. The CW, however, insists that no decision has been made. I'll do my best to get to the bottom of this and get you some kind of firm answer. Oh, who am I kidding. This is Life Is Wild we're talking about. I've already spent too much time on this subject.

OK, that's a wrap! As I casually mentioned at the top of the column, AA is going to be on hiatus until Jan. 7 on account of the holidays. But never fear, I'm not disappearing from your lives completely. Over the next few weeks I'll continue to update my Ausiello Report blog with breaking news and other assorted randomness (i.e., my annual wish list for Santa). And if you're feeling really suicidal lonely, I'm always just an e-mail* away. Happy holidays!

* I'll have intermittent access to e-mail, so in the event of an emergency, you best simmer. Or call 911.
