Ask TV Squad: Ghost Whisperer and more!

Ghost WhispererThe "Ask TV Squad" column, published every Wednesday, answers your questions about current and past TV shows, as well as about the celebrities appearing on TV. Every week, I will pick a question (or more) sent to us and provide answers in the column. If your question is not picked for a column, it may be answered in a subsequent column or in TV Squad's APB Podcast.

To submit questions to the "Ask TV Squad" column, you can post them below in comments or email them to asktvsquad@gmail.com.

This week, I answer questions about Ghost Whisperer, How to Make It in America and Better Off Ted.

Q. Suzanne asks "I know Ghost Whisperer is not one of the shows you review. But do you watch it? It seems to me that it has gotten scarier this year. It still is kind of fluffy and lightweight. But I think they are definitely turning up the scary factor. What do you think?"

A. As I posted a year ago, I didn't start watching Ghost Whisperer when it premiered. However, I got sucked in thanks to reruns and am now watching it every week.

I agree with you that the show, even if it's still airing at 8 pm, has gotten scarier this year. It's surprising considering that they added a five-year-old into the mix! The stories seem to be a bit darker and the ghost "flashes" Melinda sees are spookier and more gruesome too. I've been enjoying the season so far and its darker tone.

Are the writers offering us scarier storylines because that's what they are coming up with this season? Or are they giving us darker storylines to prepare us for more secrets about the ghosts, the shadows, the book, the dark side, etc.? I for one am looking forward to more mythology about the ghost world.

By the way, starting this week, TV Squad will offer weekly reviews of Ghost Whisperer. Look for them to be posted sometime on Saturdays.

Q. JTL asks "Any news about HBO's How to Make It in America?"

A. A few days ago, HBO sent out a press release about this upcoming series starring Bryan Greenberg, Victor Rasuk, Luis Guzman, Lake Bell, and Scott "Kid Cudi" Mescudi. How to Make It in America is a comedy set to premiere in February 2010. The series is about two enterprising Brooklyn 20-somethings as they hustle their way through NYC and the fashion world in the hopes of achieving the American Dream.

HBO ordered a first season of eight episodes shot on location in New York City. Production has just begun, so there's no video footage or official pictures out on the web, but we should soon see some popping up here and there.

Q. Marcus asks "When is ABC's Better Off Ted returning?"

A. ABC announced last week that this gem of a comedy would return on Tuesday, December 8 at 9 p.m. You can expect the same satirical office humor as was offered in season one of the show, since all the major players are returning. The exact number of episodes we will get in the show's second season is not known, but the cast and crew are producing episode 11 as we speak. Let's hope viewers tune in and that ABC gives the Veridian Dynamics employees a full season of 22 episodes to make us laugh.
