The cast of The Love Boat reunites!
May 23rd, 2017 under Reunions, TV News. [ Comments: none ]

It has been 40 years since The Love Boat set sail, 30 years since it took its last voyage, and today the six leads got together to talk about their beloved show on Today. Captain Stubing (Gavin MacLeod), Vicki (Jill Whelan), Julie (Lauren Tewes), Doc (Bernie Kopell), Gopher (Fred Grandy) and Isaac (Ted Lange) climbed aboard and reminisced about the days on the cruise ship.

Even though that have been on dry land for 3 decades, they still get together all the time. To me when a cast still keeps in touch after so many years even decades after their show ended, it explains why their shows still air in syndication. It is that chemistry that makes the a special show even more special.

This show was so special that actors and musicians begged to be on it. Celebrities like Aretha Franklin, but no one believed Lange when he would tell them that.

Did they know the show was going to be a hit from the beginning? Nope, even the network thought it wasn’t going to get passed the pilot phase. The head honchos thought San Pedro Beach Bums was going to be the biggest show and it never made it to air.

Back in 1977, it was all about cop shows and sitcoms, and The Love Boat was different. MacLeod explained how legendary producer Aaron Spelling made it different than the others. He revealed what were the three storylines were they tackled every week, “We had a sophisticated comedies, we had our broad funny one and a poignant one.” Then he added,”They were touched and they were happy endings.”

What also set this show apart from the rest, they really traveled the World.

There was nothing like The Love Boat back then and nothing like it now. Something I think we are desperately missing. A show about happy endings during difficult times. Yes it was on UPN for a season and I think it needs to be brought back again. More than a show like American Idol. What do you think?

Is the Revenge cast planning a revenge?
May 15th, 2017 under Reunions. [ Comments: none ]


Days after Revenge costars Emily VanCamp and Joshua Bowman announced their engagement, the actress seemed more interested in another castmate at their birthday reunion. Emily was photographed kissing her TV BFF Ashley Madekwe as her finacé, Gabriel Mann, Barry Sloane and Connor Paolo watched. Maybe if there was more action like that on the drama, it would still be on the air. On that note, maybe they can bring it back with just the younger generation.

Sorry, I stopped watching, so I don’t remember who survived the series finale and who didn’t. But doesn’t mean, I don’t want to see it back on he air.

It’s Love Boat’s Captain Stubing and his daughter Vicki!
May 4th, 2017 under 70s, Reunions. [ Comments: 2 ]



It has been 40 years since The Love Boat set sail and the ship’s captain and his daughter did press to honor the milestone. Here is Gavin MacLeod and Jill Whelan waiting to talk to some reporters.

Nice to see the actors still look like a real father and daughter after 4 decades. Which I can’t believe it has been that long. Even harder to believe he is 86 and she is 50 because they both look like they could still be the King and Princess of any cruise.

BTW my dad looks forward to watching this show every Sunday on Me TV. I am surprised with all the reboots, they haven’t brought this show back again. MacLeod and Whelan could reprise their roles and I bet it would be a hit! Great way to showcase network stars like this show did in the ’70s and ’80s.

Ayyyy! The Happy Days gang sit on it for Erin Moran!

On April 22nd, Erin Moran passed away from 4th stage cancer and yesterday her Happy Days co-stars got together to remember her at Cathy Silvers’ house. Jenny Piccollo had Joanie’s brother Richie aka Ron Howard, her crush Potsie aka Anson Williams, her mom Marion Ross, her friend Ralph Malph aka Donny Most and her husband Chachi aka Scott Baio over to celebrate their friends’ life.

Proving that this show has a bond that went above and beyond their filming days. They are still friends even though the show ended almost a third of a century ago. That chemistry is why we are still watching after all of these decades. Just like them, it never gets old.

This isn’t the first time that Silvers’ honored her friend, last week she had Bewitched’s Erin Murphy and The Brady Bunch’s Susan Olsen over to talk about the late actress.

These friendships show us just how special Erin Moran was to all of these people even after all of these years. She was as special to them as she was to us growing up and watching our favorite little sister grow up during Happy Days!

The Oneders from That Thing You Do perform their one hit wonder!

It has been over 20 years since That Thing You Do came out and Tom Everett Scott, Johnathon Schaech and Ethan Embry can still jam like they did back then.

On Tuesday night the movie band reunited at the Roxy with Josh Adam Meyers as their lead vocals. How did it come about? Meyers told The Laugh Button that Scott attended some of Meyers tapings of The Comedy Jam that airs on Comedy Central, the show Meyers hosts, and he asked the actor if they would like to do a reunion at The Goddamn Comedy Jam. At first he said no, but Scott’s brother in law, who produces The After Jam, worked his magic on him and got him to say yes. Now it was time to get the other bandmates on board. As soon as Embry and Schaech heard about it they were in, but Steve Zahn was working on a movie. They waited until he was done, but since he lives in Kentucky he wasn’t able to do it. Instead they put a mask on someone who represented him on stage.

Even though it isn’t the full band, it is still beyond groovy. I love how much Embry got into it. He really went all out. So did Scott who played the drums like a pro! It had to be a total blast for them to rock out again like they did in the 1964. Since they are all musicians, maybe they can go on tour. Could you imagine if The Oneders really hot the road together? I would go seem them do That Thing They Do!
