Question: I recently read Chi McBride was reprising his Boston Public role of Principal Harper for a story arc on Boston Legal. Are any Public-ers showing up, like say, Jeri Ryan, whose character was a lawyer on Boston Public? — DJ

Ausiello: It's just Harper for now. While we're on the subject, ABC's press release says Harper gets taken to court for shielding his students from, um, "certain network news coverage." Wanna guess what that, um, "certain network news coverage" was supposed to be before David E. Kelley was (allegedly) told to vague it up? Here's a hint: Boston Legal is owned by Fox.
