Question: I'm a fan and read your column every week. I've watched the pilots for Forever and Red Band Society, and have added them to my list of shows I'll be watching. I hope they do well. I was wondering if you have seen them, and if so, what did you think? I found Red Band Society to be a feel-good show. I can't help but wonder, though, if it shouldn't be on a younger TV station like MTV, and the fact that it isn't makes me worry about its chances, as it is geared toward a younger audience. Forever is very Sherlock Holmes, which is right up my alley, and I love it whenever Ioan Gruffudd is on my TV screen. Do you think making the pilots available early hurts a TV show? What are your thoughts? - Carmelita

Through the use of animatronics, prosthetics and special effects, each of the contestants will fight to be the hero who saves good from evil and brings peace among chaos.

Dancing with the Stars has been an ABC staple since 2005, but after 16 seasons ABC felt it was time for a change. The network announced Tuesday that the dance competition will be reduced to a two-hour episode one night a week in the fall. This isn't proof of a loss of faith in the series, but an attempt to instill fresh energy, ABC Entertainment President Paul Lee explained during a conference call with reporters.
