CUE THE "GREEN ONIONS" THEME – Mark Evanier wonders when the new Sleuth channel will be showing up on DirectTV. We can't say at the Gadabout, but our Insight cable package quietly replaced Trio with it recently. We discovered the new channel this weekend and spent late Sunday watching an episode of the too-soon-cancelled Karen Sisco while the VCR in the other room recorded the late-starting season premiere of 24. Looking at most of the ads on the new channel, I'm not that impressed with much of the material being hyped on the new channel (was never a big Miami Vice viewer). But I will be looking toward its broadcasts of old "NBC Mystery Movie" material to see if some of the less familiar stuff (less Columbo, more Hec Ramsey) is a part of the package.
