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!


Could Mad About You be the next revival?
December 27th, 2017 under Paul Reiser, Revivals-Reboots, Stupid Sequels/Remakes. [ Comments: none ]

Last month, Paul Reiser told Larry King that he was finally “open” to a Mad About You revival and now there are rumors that Sony is shopping it around for a limited run. According to TV Line, the revival would center around Paul and Jamie Buchman becoming empty nesters because their daughter is going off to college.

I, for one, would love to see how they would react to having the apartment to themselves again. You know, they would be wanting to try to have sex in the living room when someone would come barging through the door. Acting like newlyweds, who have actually been married forever.


Paul Reiser talks about his show being cancelled!!!
April 26th, 2011 under NBC, Paul Reiser. [ Comments: none ]

Paul Reiser was booked on The Tonight Show last week to talk about his new show The Paul Reiser Show before it got cancelled on Friday. So on Sunday when I saw he was one of the guests on the show I wondered if he was going to do to the late night show what NBC did to him. Well he proved he has balls of steel because he appeared on the show 3 days after his show got the ax after just 2 airings. Luckily he had a good sense of humor about it, which is something I think his now defunct show was missing.
The Mad About you star said to Jay Leno, “They said, ‘They decided we are going to pull the plug because not enough people are watching.’ Which is odd because it is on NBC. And NBC, to my knowledge, they don’t traditionally make bad decisions.” And Jay responded with a chuckle, “Really?” To which Paul questioned him, “Have you had that expression? I don’t know what your experience is…” The former-prime time talk show host just threw his hands up and laughed.
If the My Two Dads star did jokes like this on his show, it seriously might’ve lasted more than two showings.
In fact he went to joke about it because when Christina Aguilera, who was sitting next to him, said she now feared for her new show The Voice that debuts on NBC at 9p, he told her not to worry because NBC spent the advertising dollars on his show to promote her’s! Me and ow!!!


NBC is not mad about The Paul Reiser Show
April 22nd, 2011 under NBC, Paul Reiser. [ Comments: none ]

After just two low rated airings, NBC has cancelled The Paul Reiser Show according to The Futon Critic. They added that the show will be replaced by repeats of The Office, but I wish they would do it with episodes of Outsourced instead because that has been NBC’s only successful new comedy of the season.
Now when it comes to The Paul Reiser Show, I can understand NBC’s decision. What worked in the ’90s isn’t necessarily going to work today.
