No, we can't. For one, you can't divorce these two things -- there'd be no
reason for Piper Laurie to play the part if it wasn't intended that Mr. T
was Catherine in disguise. Secondly, I don't see why you (or anyone) believes
that it's her in the role.

That fact is that Miguel has his own series on another network starting
at the end of this month. I wouldn't be surprised if he came back to TP
in the event that his new show flops.

False. First, Paul Raveling has posted here that ABC originally committed
to thirteen episodes for the Second Season (and we've only seen six so far),
but a few weeks ago, they asked Lynch/Frost for more. Paul got his info
from Scott Frost, brother of Mark.
Secondly, the only TP available overseas on video is a slightly extended
version of the series pilot. The series is now running on BBC2 in the UK,
and they've so far only seen the pilot and the first two episodes.
