Question: At the end of your Aug. 3 AA you promised us scoop on Las Vegas in the next column, but there was nothing! I'm sad.

Answer: Eh, better late than never, Larry. As I first reported in the Ausiello Report, exec producer Gary Scott Thompson told me at press tour that he's been approached "by numerous people" at NBC about a spin-off set in London, Monte Carlo or New Orleans. The Peacock declined to comment, but Thompson said the offshoot could debut as early as next fall. "We'll see," he added. "Let's get the mother ship into the Top 10."
