Question: Riddle me this, oh great Ausiello. Why, if there are many episodes of Men in Trees left, does ABC refuse to air them? With the TV landscape looking more and more barren, can't they at least throw us a little bone?

Answer: Your bone was delivered via press release a few weeks ago, and it looked a little something like this: Men in Trees will take over Cashmere Mafia's Wednesday at 10 pm/ET time slot beginning Feb. 27. Best-case scenario, ABC keeps the show there until May 7, which is when its current 11-episode surplus will have been depleted. But considering ABC's track record with MIT 234 time slots in two years! I'm not holding my breath.
