TV Q&A: 'Grey's Anatomy' fate is uncertain

Q Is this the final season for "Grey's Anatomy"? I was surprised that Eric Danes was taken off the show, as well as the actors who played Lexie and Teddie. Christina has left the hospital, so there are not many of the original cast members left. It would be a shame if this were the last season.

I am not a fan of "Scandal" and am trying to get interested in "Nashville" and "666 Park Avenue," but they are just OK in my opinion.

"The Neighbors" is stupid!

Will Shonda Rhimes write another good series? I certainly hope so.

A We don't know yet whether this will be the final season of "Grey's Anatomy." There has been no announcement to that effect, and the cast is signed through a 10th season -- taking the show to May 2014 -- so it seems likely it will continue.

Personally, I'm fond of "Nashville" and I find "The Neighbors" really funny. It's held up much better than I expected it would.

Q I really looked forward to Saturdays and the levity of "Psych." Is there any chance they will bring it back to any channel?

A "Psych" usually airs on a weeknight, but maybe Sharon has seen reruns on USA or in syndication on a Saturday.

New episodes of "Psych" will return to USA on Feb. 27.

Q Are "Suits," "Franklin & Bash," "Covert Affairs," "Alphas" and "Burn Notice" no longer being made? I only see repeats if and when they are on.

A Cable shows usually run in short batches of 10 to 13 episodes, often in summer, with the occasional four- to six-episode "winter season" on some cable networks. Just because you don't see a show doesn't mean it's canceled; it often means it's a seasonal program and we're not in the right season.

"Suits" and "Franklin & Bash" are summer series. Both have been renewed and will be back next summer.

"Alphas" has been airing original episodes for several months and just wrapped its season on Oct. 22.

"Covert Affairs" has been airing regularly, too, with a new episode that aired on a recent Tuesday that was directed by series star Chris Gorham.

"Burn Notice" returns with new episodes on Nov. 8.

Q Will "Dogs in the City" be back? I hope so -- I loved that show!

A CBS considers "Dogs in the City" a summer series, and the network has not announced its plans for summer 2013. Ratings for the first season were OK, but the show tended to skew older, so it's a toss-up whether it will get a second season.
