When was the original one on? — Pete McCoy, via e-mail A: It actually had sev- eral earlier incarnations. The first was a daytime version that ran from 1983 to 1986 on CBS, with Peter Tomarken as host — and relatively low-tech set, compared to the hugely flashy one Elizabeth Banks presides over in the new ABC primetime edition. However, there still were "Whammies" that players had to avoid to keep their winnings ... which one contestant famously did by using his VCR to memorize the show's board patterns and win big, though CBS ulti- mately determined that it wasn't cheating. (The sys- tem the board used was then changed.) The first revival came almost 20 years later with the syndicated "Wham- my! The All-New Press Your Luck," which had Todd Newton as host and "Saturday Night Live" cluding "Katie: Portrait of a Centerfold" (she had the title role), "The Ghost of Flight 401" and "Killjoy." Then, after a couple of relatively small films, she made her first big splash on the big screen as Sean Connery's love interest in his final turn as James Bond, "Never Say Never Again." Q: Please settle an ar- gument. On "The Andy Griffith Show," were Gomer Pyle and Goober re- lated? — Margaret Forrest, Delta, Colo. A: Indeed, they were. They were cousins with a lot in common, includ- ing the fact that they both pumped gas for a living ... and both actors who played the parts, Jim Na- bors and George Lindsey, hailed from Alabama. In- terestingly, they only ap- peared together on "Andy Griffith" in one episode, but Lindsey did a guest shot on Nabors' "Gomer Pyle, USMC" spinoff. Gomer had talked about Goober (and trust us, we've never used that sentence before) before alum Gary Kroeger as the announcer. Then in 2006, "Press Your Luck" had a brief comeback (with Ricki Lake hosting) as part of CBS' "Game- show Marathon," which combined several classic television games. The cur- rent incarnation marks the first time the show has been back since then. Q: Someone told me Kim Basinger once had a TV series. Is that true? — Don Mitchell, Grafton, Ohio A: She actually had two, in the late 1970s. The first was a police-de- tective show called "Dog and Cat," and the sec- ond was a version of the classic novel and movie "From Here to Eternity," in which Basinger took the Lorene role that had earned Donna Reed an Os- car for the 1953 film. Basinger also stayed busy with other television work before her movie ca- reer took off. She was a guest star on such shows as "Charlie's Angels," "The Six Million Dollar Man" and "Vega$," and she made TV-movies in- the latter became a physi- cal presence o n "Griffi th" when Nabors left to do his own show. Lindsey actually had auditioned for the Gomer role that ultimately went to Na- bors, but he had a good run with Goober — car- rying the character into another "Griffith" spinoff that CBS commissioned, "Mayberry R.F.D." Q: Was "Splitting Up To- gether" renewed? — Lauren Brace, Port Orange. A: No. ABC decided to end the comedy, starring Jenna Fischer and Oliver Hudson as ex-spouses still sharing housing, after two seasons. Developed from a Danish show whose title translated into "Better Divorced Than Never," the American version in- cluded Ellen DeGeneres among its executive pro- ducers.
