The third annual General Hospital Convention takes place in Burbank, CA this weekend. GH stars Maurice Benard, Laura Wright, Genie Francis, Steve Burton, Roger Howarth, Maura West, and more will be there.

Ted and Tony Coming to Town

Ted Danson, Tony Danza, and many other television stars will be coming to Philly for Wizard World June 13 – 16 at the Philadelphia Convention Center. Other notables include George Wendt from Cheers, Dean Cain, and Ben McKenzie from The O.C.


Alec Baldwin Next Comedy Central Roast Subject

Alec Baldwin will be the next star to headline the Comedy Central Roast this August. The Comedy Central roast is one of my favorite shows of the year. I’m expecting the dais to be made up of co-stars from 30 Rock, Match Game, and SNL.

Of course, there will be no shortage of topics – parking spaces, anger management, Trump, his short-lived talk show, his brothers, his steak knives monologue from Glengary Glen Ross, and fatherhood times four after 50.

Grateful for Dead

I was happy to hear that Dead to Me was renewed for another season on Netflix. I wouldn’t be surprised if Christina Applegate gets an Emmy nomination for her performance.

Jeopardy Emma!

I’m so proud of Conestoga High’s Emma Boettcher for her victory on Jeopardy. She is my favorite Emma since Sergeant Emma, Alice’s twin cousin on The Brady Bunch.

Former Philly Anchor on Jeopardy

Sharp-eyed viewers may have noticed former WCAU news anchor Deborah KnappĀ  giving a clue on Jeopardy last week. Knapp co-anchored with Larry Kane on Channel 10 in the mid-80’s. These days Knapp is a news anchor in San Antonio, Texas.

Re-Boot Fever

With the success of the re-boots of All in the Family and The Jeffersons, it got me thinking about what other classic sitcoms could be redone.

My choices:

Alice with Connie Britton as Flo

Three’s Company with Whoopi Goldberg as Mrs. Roper

One Day at a Time with Bryan Cranston as Schneider

Maude with John Legend singing the theme song
