BY LORRIE LYNCH Q: Debra Messing is the best comedienne since Lucille Ball. Will NBC put her Will & Grace on DVD, like Friends is now? TRICIA MARRAPODI, Tucson, Ariz. Eventually, but the network won't say when. The first season already is out in Britain and France, but those discs can't play on U.S. DVD players. Q: Does ER's Laura Innes plan to stick around or Jump ship like so many . others? ARLENE REILLY, Kent, Wash. She's staying, and now she's second, in terms of longevity, behind Noah Wyle. The 43-year-old actress, who plays Kerry Weaver, also has directed some episodes of ER and The West Wing. Q: What's the status of three films completed by 24's Kiefer Sutherland: Behind the Red Door, Ring of Fire and To End All Wars! CAROL KING, Marietta, Go. Wars should be in limited release this month. Fire, now Cowboy Up, went straight to video; it's out this month, too. Behind the Red Door may go direct to video soon. Plus, £i's first season is just out on DVD. Q: Are Cilmore Girls co-stars Lauren Graham and Scott Patterson dating? ALEXIS BOURGEOIS, Lafayette, La. No. They have terrific onscreen chemistry but are just great friends. Q: Please tell me Dana Delany will come back to TV. She should have a show as good as the one that made her a star, China Beach. JOHN THOMAS, Chicago The new CBS drama Presidio Med, in which Delany, 46, plays a doctor, may be it. If it takes off, Delany will find her daily routine — yoga class, then her favorite coffee shop—interrupted again. Last season she starred in Fox's failed nighttime soap Pasadena. 9.22.02 Andrea Bocelli 44 9.23.02 Bruce Springsteen 53 9.24.02 Kevin Sorbo 44 9.25.02 Catherine Zeta-Jones 33 Will Smith 34 Heather Locklear 41 Christopher Reeve 50 Michael Douglas 58 Barbara Walters 71 9.26.02 Serena Williams 21 9.27.02 Gwyneth Paltrow 30 9.28.02 Mira Sorvino 35 Janeane Garofalo 38 Whether you need insider dirtdiat for an Emmy-watching party oryou just like to impress the spouse and kids, this knowing guide to Sunday's broadcast (8 p.m. FT, NBC) by award expert Tom O'Neil will inform your preshow chatter. Make sure you drop these pearls and predictions: • First-time host Conan O'Brien will rock. Acid- torigued comedians usually do best (like Ellen DeGeneres last year) because they sneak up on their TV pals before they pounce. • Don't lookfor early trends. You can do that with the Oscars, but the Emmys' voting system is unique: Different people decide each race. • Remember, nominees submit ONE episode. They aren't judged on the year or body of work. Thus, Six Feet Undefs Michael C. Hall has a shot at best actor in a drama on the strength of the episode in which he comes out as gay — the one he gave the voters. • It may be Friendt year. TV's top sitcom has lost four times in the best comedy category. But now, for the first time, three cast members are up for lead-actor awards; Matt LeBlanc and Jennifer Aniston (who submitted the full-hour season finale) could win. • If s going to be suspenserul. There are more fresh faces than we've seen in eons, which means uncertainty in big races. Among the burning questions: Can HBO's Six Feet Under, with the second-most nominations in Emmy history (23), bury The West Wing (with 21) at such a patriotic time? Three-year-old West Wing already has won the,best drama prize twice. Q: My mother-in-law says Brad Garrett (Robert on Everybody Loves Raymond) was one of the Brady Bunch kids. I say no way. Who's right? KAYCEE CASSEL, Rohnert Park, Calif. You are. Garrett, 42, never even had a bit part on The Brady Bunch. He started out as a stand-up comedian (in the '80s), not as an actor. Q: Did Whoop! Goldberg decide to leave Hollywood Squares or was she asked to leave? DIANNE WILSON, McComb, Miss. We're told she "couldn't accept" the offer Squares syndicator King World put on the table, which suggests money was the issue. As center square and executive producer, she reportedly was paid $10 million a year. Q: Will Judith Light continue to guest-star on Law & Order: SVU this season? KATIE MARPLE, Frederick, AM. Yes. She'll have a "recurring" role as SVU Bureau Chief Elizabeth Donnelly. Catch her next Friday in SWs season premiere. Q: Is ABC's Elizabeth Vargas in line for the weeknight anchor job when Peter Jennings retires? DON ANDERSEN, Russell, Pa. Sure — behind every other ABC star. Anchoring on Saturday night doesn't mean Vargas, 40, is on the fast track to Jennings' job. Unlike; NBC, where Brian Williams has been named heir to Tom Brokaw, ABC leaves the possibilities wide open, ea HlOTIi tifcfeti QUESTION OF THE WEEK Each week, USA WEtKEND Magazine and TV's Hot TVdwt pose a question movie lovers will Just have to weigh In on.
