Roseanne Has Killed Roseanne

Roseanne just cannot get out of her own way. It was an easy decision for ABC to cancel the show after her horrible tweets, but in truth, after the first episode, the show got worse every week and ABC jumped the gun a little renewing it after only two episodes.

I wonder if the cable networks that air the older Roseanne reruns will pull them.

Mario Batali Has Killed The Chew

So ABC officially cancelled The Chew, a couple of weeks after firing co-host Mario Batali, who is accused of sexual harassment by multiple people.

So can we now say that ABC’s short-sighted move of cancelling the long-running soaps, All My Children and One Life to Live, was a big, fat flop?

I would love ABC to bring back one or both of them, but they’ve already announced they will air another hour of Good Morning America in the afternoon in the fall.

 

Brady Bunch Connection to Royal Wedding

Gigi Perreau who played the teacher that Greg had a crush on in the episode, The Undergraduate, was the real-life acting teacher of Meghan Markle.

Roseanne Thoughts

So after watching the finale of Roseanne, I realized I like everything in the re-boot except Roseanne (and Dan). I love Jackie, Becky, Darlene, and D.J., and the new generation of Conners is great.

But it is depressing watching them go through money issues, health problems, and even the basement flooding!

Roseanne returns with a 13-episode order in the fall.

Still on a Meghan and Harry High

So does anyone else think the huge ratings for the wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are due to the popularity of The Crown on Netflix? It’s what got me interested.

Here’s my summary of the telecast.

Best parent – Doria, Meghan’s mom

Life on the D List – The cast of Suits, Abigail Spencer, Priyanka Chopra

Immediate Stars – The cello player, the choir, the Bishop, the page boy with the gap in his teeth

Best Comeback – After not getting invited to the wedding of Price William and Kate Middleton, Sarah Ferguson made a triumphant return

Horses of the Weekend – Forget Justify, who won the Preakness, the best horses were the ones leading the carriages

Prettiest non-bride – Amal Clooney

Best looking non-groom – Idris Elba

Biggest puss – Victoria Beckham (natch)

The British are coming – James Corden, Elton John, James Blunt, Idris Elba, David and Victoria Beckam (Where was Adele?)

The American Revolution – Serena Williams, Oprah Winfrey, George Clooney

Third wheel – Oprah, with Idris Elba and his fiancee

 

 

 

 

 

Nurse’s Ball Time

For you three other General Hospital fans out there, it is the best time of the year – Nurse’s Ball time!

It is great to see the actors show off their singing and dancing talents.

Tina Fey Returns to SNL

Upper Darby’s Tina Fey returns to host Saturday Night Live this week. When all is said and done, she may turn out to be the most successful Philadelphia entertainer in history. She has conquered television, Broadway, and movies.
