Question: Please say that F/X will do a third season of Nip/Tuck. I'm still reeling from last week's cliffhanger! — Miranda

Ausiello: I've got good news and bad news for you, Mir. Can I call you Mir? Cool. The good news: Yes, F/X will have a third season of Nip/Tuck. The bad news: Series creator Ryan Murphy may not be a part of it. (He wants to make movies, beginning with the Julianne Moore pic Running with Scissors.) And as he half-jokingly pointed out to me last week on the phone, "The only person in the world who knows whether Christian is dead or alive is me, so the fate of that character does rest in my hands." Sounds like someone's enjoying his newfound power, Mir.
