... Question: Am I the only one watching Longmire? I found it because I'm a huge Lou Diamond Phillips fan, but all the characters are great, and it can be funny as well as very moving. I was just wondering if any of the networks are planning a new "Western" since Justified and now Longmire have paved the way west again? — Gena

Matt Roush: You're hardly the only one watching Longmire. It's successful enough that A&E has already renewed it for a second season, which is a very good thing. And while several networks developed Western project for next season, only one made the cut for the fall, and it's a bit of a hybrid: CBS' Vegas (Tuesdays at 10/9c), a crime drama set in the '60s when Las Vegas was still something of a frontier town, with the glittery gambling oasis just beginning to take shape, pitting a rancher sheriff (Dennis Quaid, every inch a CBS star) against an interloper of a Chicago mobster (Michael Chiklis). Also of note if a darker shade of Western is your taste: the second season of AMC's railroad melodrama Hell on Wheels, starting Aug. 12...

Longmire airs Sunday at 10/9C on A&E TV.
