Q: I missed “Dancing With the Stars” the night Billy Dee Williams left. What was the reason he did? – Judy Mitchell, Buffalo

A: His doctor advised him to bow out of the contest because for a chronic back problem, He was quite gracious in commending dance partner Emma Slater for the work she’d done with him over their weeks of performance and rehearsal, and his early exit made the need for a formal elimination of another contestant that night unnecessary.


Q: Will “Chicago PD” be back next season? – Bill Brown, Schaumburg, Ill.

A: It will. The “Chicago Fire” spinoff was one of the earliest series renewals by NBC for the 2014-15 season, along with “Chicago Fire” itself. It certainly hasn’t hurt the two Dick Wolf-produced shows that their characters have crossed over with reasonable regularity since the police drama premiered in January.


Q: Will there be a “Psych” reunion movie? – Cindy Hill, Richmond, Calif.

A: The chance for it surely exists, but with the USA Network series having ended only a few weeks ago, it’s a bit early for it to be discussed as a reality.

Also, several of its stars – including real-life couple James Roday and Maggie Lawson – have new shows in the works (both for CBS, in their cases), so their availability also will be a factor if and when “Psych” reunion project discussions get serious.
