Q&A: Nov. 28

Question: Do you happen to know what happened to Loriana Hernandez, former morning weekend anchor on Channel 5? She seems to have disappeared about three weeks ago.

Answer: Loriana recently was laid off by NBC Universal as part of the latest company-wide cost-cutting initiative. A staffer at NBC5 says she's "just trying to regroup right now."

Question: Any chance of Six Degrees starting back up again? I thought it was better than The Nine.
Jay Davis

Answer: Both Six Degrees and The Nine supposedly will return at some point next year after being put on hiatus by ABC. Their long-term prospects are dim, though. Serial dramas that don't click in the early going are seldom able to increase or even sustain their audiences after long-term absences. So far this season the only new serial to really make it big is NBC's Heroes, which in September was unclebarky.com's pick to be prime-time's sleeper hit of the season.

Question: I was wondering if Prison Break has improved in the local ratings over the last month. I thought the finale was pretty good (with the exception of the ludicrous Bellick murder story). Can't wait for it to return in January!
Mike Hawkins

Answer: Despite being filmed in North Texas for its entire second season, Prison Break continues to struggle in the D-FW Nielsens. It's doing appreciably better nationally, however, particularly with advertiser-coveted 18-to-49-year-olds.
