GBI to provide updates in Tara Grinstead disappearance
After 12 years, the Georgia Bureau of Investigation has a break in beauty queen, Tara Grinstead's disappearance. A website, findtara.com , provided information about her disappearance and investigators' contact information.

Doubt got off to a disappointing ratings start, opening to a 0.8 Live+same day rating among adults 18-49 and 5.29 million viewers. The series marks Heigl's return to broadcast television, following her short-lived NBC political drama State of Affairs.

While the show received largely positive reviews, mostly for its acting rather than storylines, the rating just weren't there.

The show, the first network series to present a trans actor in an featured role, was initially developed for the 2014 television season but was retooled with Heigl as lead.
