The Book Club ladies have a message for Deadpool
May 16th, 2018 under Candice Bergen, Diane Keaton, Jane Fonda, Ryan Reynolds, Ted Danson Mary Steenburgen. [ Comments: none ]

Deadpool 2 and Book Club are both coming out on Friday, but everyone is focused on the movie with Ryan Reynolds in it. Well, the ladies have a message for him and they want him know they are just as good as him. That and they want to go all Fifty Shades of Grey with the DILF. Even Mrs. Ted Danson who played his mom in The Proposal. Can you blame Mary Steenburgen, Candice Bergen, Diane Keaton and Jane Fonda? He is a hot piece of a life-size red condom.

I cannot wait to see how Deadpool responds to the Anastasia Steele wannabes. You know it will be naughty, just how they all like it!

BTW what does it say about me that I would rather see Book Club over Deadpool 2?


FYI, The Murphy Brown together again!
April 6th, 2018 under Candice Bergen. [ Comments: none ]

We are months away from the revival of Murphy Brown returning to our airwaves, but that is not stopping the cast and the creator from getting together now. Yesterday, Nik Dodani, Candice Bergen, Faith Ford, Joe Regalbuto, Grant Shaud and Diane English got together to talk about their show and all we got was this photo. Granted, it is a pretty awesome photo, that makes me more excited for the comedy to return to CBS in the fall. I just wish we did not have to wait that long.

When it comes to the original cast members, they have not aged a day in the 20 years since their sitcom ended the first time. Seriously, don’t they look fantastic?


Murphy Brown revival is in trouble?
March 16th, 2018 under Candice Bergen, CBS. [ Comments: none ]

CBS announced today who will play Murphy Brown’s son Avery and he is a show killer. Jake McDorman, who starred in Manhattan Love Story and Limitless, got the role. But he is as forgettable as his beard is not visible. Translation very forgettable.

I know that is a stupid reason not to like an actor, but that is why I cannot watch Jake’s shows. When I do watch his shows, I spend all my time trying to figure out if he has a beard or not. It is frustrating to me. Therefore, if CBS wants the show to succeed, they need to make him clean shaven.

What will his character be doing on the show? CBS says, “Murphy’s millennial journalist son who is following in his mother’s footsteps, perhaps too closely, and has his mother’s competitive spirit and quick wit.” I think it would be better if he was the opposite of his mom. What do you think of it all?


FYI, who will and won’t be back on Murphy Brown?
February 26th, 2018 under Candice Bergen, CBS. [ Comments: 1 ]

Last month, CBS announced that they were bringing back Murphy Brown in the fall for 13 episodes, but they did not say who would be back besides Candice Bergen. Today, they did and Faith Ford (Corky Sherwood), Joe Regalbuto (Frank Fontana) and Grant Shaud (Miles Silverberg) will all reprise their roles on the revival.

While we see those four again, as of now we will not see them joined by Charles Kimbrough (Jim Dial), who turns 82 in May. Also not part of the revival is Robert Pastorelli (Eldin), who passed away in 2004. No word if Scott Bakula will sneak over to the show on a break from NCIS: NoLa to play her ex and Avery’s dad. Since I have read reports that her son plays a big part on it, I am sure they will find a way.

Murphy Brown celebrates it 30th anniversary this year, so the fact that they got 4 of the originals to return to the sitcom is pretty impressive. Plus, their return makes me want to watch it now!

Now that we know who is back and who isn’t, all we need is for Mike Pence to pick a fight with Murphy Brown! How absolutely fabulous would that be? I am sure Donald Trump will find a way to Tweet his distaste for the show, but then again what TV show, that isn’t on Fox News, does he not have a problem with?


FYI, CBS is reviving Murphy Brown
January 24th, 2018 under Candice Bergen, CBS. [ Comments: 1 ]

Remember when NBC announced that they were reviving Coach and you were like who asked for that? Well, today CBS announced that they are bringing back Murphy Brown next season for 13 episodes. I liked the news sitcom, but who asked for it? I guess CBS is going for the older demographic like AARP and above.

I mean, I am glad to have Candice Bergen back on TV, but wow. Just absorbing their decision to bring the show back after 20 years. It just feels dated since so much has changed since it went off the air in ’98. So what is the premise for the revival? CBS says, “Murphy Brown returns to a world of cable news, social media, fake news and a very different political and cultural climate.”

Back when the show aired, it was controversial because Bergen’s real life pregnancy was written into the show and her character was not married. Then Vice President Dan Quayle took issue with that storyline and the sitcom took issue with him. Which makes you wonder how political it will be this time around. Something I am not looking forward to and it is a big reason why I am not loving the Roseanne revival. I want to escape politics with scripted TV and not be reminded of it when I am trying to get away from it.

When it comes to the rest of the cast, we do not know who, if any of them will return. When I say this show is going for AARP demo, I ain’t kidding. Faith Ford is the youngest cast member and she is 53. Grant Shaud is 56, Joe Regalbuto is 68, Bergen is 71 and Charles Kimbrough is 10 years older than her. Sadly, Robert Pastorelli passed away in 2004, so he will not be part of it. Also, it will be hard to bring Scott Bakula back because he is starring in NCIS: NoLa on the network. But then there is their kid. No word how old he will be. If Roseanne can change up the kids’ ages on her show, then Bergen can do the same with hers.

What do you think Murphy Brown coming back? Which show do you wish they brought back instead? When it comes to which CBS show I wish they would have revived first, I have been rooting for Still Standing. So I think that is why this news bums me out.

Fox is the only network of the Big 4 not to bring back show. What they are waiting for? I guess Modern Family to end already, so they can get Ed O’Neill back. And if Murphy Brown costs me Superior Donuts and gives Fox Katey Sagal, then I am going to boycott it.

One last note, isn’t Great News just like a modern day version of Murphy Brown? And look at how that show is doing in the ratings? I like it, but not too many other people do.

I lied, finally if you have never seen Murphy Brown, then you can watch it on Antenna TV weeknights at 10p.
