Are you happy about Mad About You coming back to television?
March 6th, 2019 under Helen Hunt, Paul Reiser. [ Comments: none ]


After a year of pitching a Mad About You revival, the show finally has a home. Spectrum Originals announced today that it picked up the sitcom for a limited event series to air later this year.

So far the only original cast members returning are Paul Reiser and Helen Hunt aka Paul and Jamie Buchman. I am sure that will change as they ramp up production. When they do start filming, Hunt will direct the first episode along with starring in it.

Katherine Pope, Head of Original Content, has this to say about it, “Two decades ago, fans fell in love with this show, and this time will be no different as Paul, Helen and Peter [Tolan, EP] explore modern marriage through the eyes of two people who have just become empty-nesters. We can’t wait for everyone to fall in love with the Buchmans all over again.​”​

How much do you want to bet that they have an episode dealing with them trying to figure out how to use social media and how to do esex? I can just hear his NY accent whining about it now.

This is Spectrum’s second original series. LA Finest, a spinoff of Bad Boys with Gabrielle Union and Jessica Alba, will debut on May 13th.

Helen Hunt’s daughter is her mini me
May 29th, 2018 under Helen Hunt. [ Comments: none ]


We very rarely see Helen Hunt’s daughter Makena Lei Gordon Carnahan, but over the weekend the Oscar winner shared a photo of the two of them. Seeing them together proves to me that the 14-year-old is her mom’s spitting image when she was younger. Especially since she looks just like Hunt when she was in Girls Just Want to Have Fun. If you have never seen that movie, you need to watch it ASAP. It is one of the best movies of the ’80s with an equally as rad soundtrack.

BTWF: Helen Hunt on The Fitzpatricks
April 12th, 2018 under Before They Were Famous, Helen Hunt. [ Comments: none ]


(starts at 16:00 in)

Before Helen Hunt had a dog on Mad About You, she had a cat on The Fitzpatricks. How cute was the 15-year-old in that 1978 episode.

Mad About You is Thicslose to happening
April 12th, 2018 under Ellen DeGeneres, Helen Hunt, Paul Reiser. [ Comments: none ]


Hours after Helen Hunt told Ellen DeGeneres that she and Paul Reiser have been meetings in her kitchen a lot recently about doing a Mad About You revival, Entertainment Weekly reports that they closed a deal with Sony to bring back the show. Now it is up to the studio to sell the show to a network and Mad About You will join Will & Grace and Roseanne on our TVs again.

Since those two shows have been successful, it seems like a no-brainer for NBC to be the one that picks it up since they aired it the first time. At this rate, NBC will only air revivals of their old sitcoms on Thursdays. I would not be surprised if they are talking to the casts of Wing, Family Ties and Night Court to bring those comedies back. I am rooting most for the last one. What shows do you want to see back on TV?

When it comes to Mad About You returning to the airwaves, I am lukewarm. I watched it, but it is nothing that makes me say it needs to come back. Do you think it does?

We are another step closer to a Mad About You revival
March 30th, 2018 under Helen Hunt, James Corden, Paul Reiser. [ Comments: none ]


Back in December, Paul Reiser said he was interested in a Mad About You Reunion. Yesterday when his TV wife Helen Hunt was on The Late Late Show, she told James Corden that she is also up for it.

But it gets even better than that, she revealed to the CBS host that she and Reiser had breakfast earlier in the day at her house to talk about it. They just don’t want it to “suck”. Then she shared with us, “We would like to do it. Although, we felt very proud of what we did. We just don’t want to wreck it and make it sucky. That’s the goal.”

And with that confirmation, NBC is probably calling them as you read this and offering them a 10-episode deal. Soon it will be nothing but our childhood’s on TV. You know what, I am OK with that. Very OK with that!
