You have questions (and comments). I have some answers.

Q: Could you please tell me if "The Cool Kids" (one of the best shows on TV now) has been renewed and will be back in the fall?

A: It appears to be done. In spite of a swell cast — Martin Mull, David Alan Grier, Leslie Jordan and Vicki Lawrence — and some amusing moments, the show did not ultimately thrill the network enough to get picked up for a second season.

Q: Back in the '60s, one of the networks aired a star-studded special exploring American history. I remember it starring John Wayne and many other celebrities. Can you research the details and let us know if the show is available on DVD?

A: The name of the special was "Swing Out, Sweet Land," and it originally aired on NBC in November 1970. An all-star collection including John Wayne, Ann-Margret, Bob Hope, Leslie Uggams and more offered music, comedy sketches (such as Hope entertaining troops at Valley Forge) and solemn bits (Bing Crosby as Mark Twain talking with Roscoe Lee Browne's Frederick Douglass). It is available on YouTube and, with the title "John Wayne's Tribute to America," on DVD.

Q: Is there a limit on how much a winner can win on "Jeopardy!" and how many times can James Holzhauer (or any other contestant who is on a winning streak) keep going?

A: While there were limits on appearances in the past, the current rules let contestants keep playing as long as they can win. At this writing on Wednesday, "Jeopardy!" phenom Holzhauer has won 25 consecutive matches, second-longest streak ever, but the record is 74 straight non-tournament games set by Ken Jennings; he lost in his 75th game. Jennings won $2,520,700, a record for total winnings not counting tournament wins; Holzhauer had more than $1.9 million as of May 22.

The all-time money winner including regular shows and tournaments is Brad Rutter, with more than $4.6 million, followed by Jennings with over $3.3 million when tournaments are added.

Q: I read on Facebook that there is a possibility that "SEAL Team" may not be renewed. This is by far the best show on TV. Please tell me it will be renewed.

A: Although the season finale on Wednesday certainly looked as if it could be a series-ender, the military drama will be back on CBS this fall, again on Wednesday nights.

Q: When will "Yellowstone" return?

A: The Paramount Network drama starring Kevin Costner will begin its second season on June 19. You can find a new trailer on YouTube.

Q: Will they ever make any more "Forensic Files" on HLN? I have seen all of them many times and 2011 was the last year they were made.

A: The much-traveled series aired on TLC, Court TV and other networks before landing on HLN and has been popular just about everywhere; HLN has called it a mainstay of its lineup. But when it comes to new episodes, a statement from the network only said, "While there are currently no new episodes airing, it's certainly been talked about, so one never knows."

Q: On "The Big Bang Theory," did they ever mention Penny's last name prior to her marriage to Leonard Hofstadter? My daughter says "Nope."

A: Your daughter is correct. She had no last name when the show began. And after the end of the sixth season in 2013, "Big Bang" executive producer Steve Molaro told Vulture.com that "We've made it this far without knowing Penny's last name. I think we're good not finding out." Besides, he added, "What name could we possibly pick that would be satisfying at this point?"
