Question: Wow, it must be nice to take two weeks off! (Ha, just kidding.) Got any Alias scoop?
Answer: That was a real knee-slapper, Dustin. ABC president Steve McPherson told me that it's 80 percent likely that this will be Alias' final season. He also said that despite her pregnancy, Jennifer Garner will appear in every episode this season even if that means producing fewer episodes. Finally, McPherson expects her maternity leave will result in a longer-than-usual winter hiatus, with the show going off the air at the end of November and returning sometime in March or early April.
