Hello to Don Cheadle and 302 Alcatraz inmates

Beyond a fondness for things automotive, Quiñones says he happily accepted the emcee invitation because, "Being Hispanic, whenever I can work it into my crazy schedule, I try to give back and express the importance of diversification. I’m a living example of how an integrated workforce can benefit a corporation. Diversity works."
His focus now is on What Would You Do? — a hidden-camera series that sets up provocative situations to see how everyday Americans will respond — launching its new 13-week season at 9 p.m. Friday, Jan. 20, as lead-in to 20/20.
"The scenarios run the gamut this season," Quiñones says. "I thought we would have run out of ideas by now. One of the most interesting, I think, is a visit we took to Provo, Utah, the most conservative town in the country according to voting records, where we look at interracial and gay relationships, among other issues."
Quiñones will be joined by actress and Cosby Show legend Phylicia Rashad to co-host the Urban Wheel Awards at 7 p.m. Sunday, preceded by a 4 p.m. reception honoring NAIAS chairman William "Bill" Perkins, the first African-American to hold the title. Tickets are available online at www.ticketmaster.com or by calling 800-745-3000.
'Hung’ over: HBO has decided three seasons is enough for Hung, the seriocomedy set in Detroit with Thomas Jane as a desperate teacher turned male prostitute. We should have known he couldn’t keep it up much longer. While canceling Hung, Bored to Death and How to Make It in America, HBO has renewed Laura Dern’s much-maligned freshman comedy Enlightened. This is enlightenment?
