Q: In May’s season finale of Mike & Molly, Molly announced she was pregnant. This season, no pregnancy. What gives?

A: It certainly seemed as if the show was building up to a Molly pregnancy — I, too, thought she was — since so much air time was devoted to her and Mike trying.

CBS, however, said she was not pregnant. In fact, in the next to last episode of the third season, a lot of attention is given to her frustration over not being pregnant. This season, the emphasis has shifted from baby making to Molly’s writing ambitions.

Q: How come John O’Hurley is never mentioned on Dancing With the Stars? Didn’t he win the first season?

A: O’Hurley was not a champion. He placed second to Kelly Monaco in the first season in 2005. Controversy ensued, not least because Monaco received three 10s for a dance with lots of awkward spots. There was enough complaining about Monaco’s win that DWTS brought her and O’Hurley back for a dance-off special the following September, which O’Hurley won.

Nor is it true that he is never mentioned. An ABC rep said he has been in the audience occasionally, and it appears he has been seen in archival footage.

Q: Ramar of the Jungle was a show probably in the 1950s, about two guys in the jungle. I believe they were doctors. I really liked the show, but I’ve never seen anything about it.

A: According to Total Television, Ramar of the Jungle was a syndicated show from the early ’50s. Jon Hall starred as Dr. Tom Reynolds, also known as Ramar, who helped people in the jungles of Kenya and India. Ray Montgomery played Ramar’s sidekick, Howard Ogden, and in some episodes Victor Millan was Zahir, Ramar’s guide. There are DVDs available of some episodes.
