    Oh, now I remember. It wasn't public, but one of my FB friends thought she'd just died and posted about it.

    Didn't that happen a few years ago, too?
  3. "Roseanne" - 2018 Revival on ABC

    This isn't breaking news but I haven't seen it mentioned here yet. It looks like the Conner family is escaping the sitcom guillotine for the time being. https://abc.go.com/shows/the-conners/news/updates/the-conners-renewed-for-season-2-by-abc
  4. CBS revives Murphy Brown

    I haven't seen any of the new episodes, nor much of the original run, but I am sorry they're not giving it another chance. When done right, multicams can be so good, and cancellations like this only fuel the argument that it's an outmoded form of entertainment that deserves to be supplanted by single-cams, which I wholeheartedly disagree with. If anything, it's a shame Will & Grace is still coming back for another season when Murphy Brown and The Cool Kids aren't. My opinion on that show has soured for a variety of reasons (including the complete loss of whatever comedic timing Debra Messing once possessed), and I'm not that wild about the original episodes anymore either, but the new batch has really lost my interest. With one exception, I can't think of any episodes this season that I truly enjoyed. I haven't even watched the last five and currently have no desire to. To quote the late Brandon Tartikoff, "Situation comedy is not dead, it just has to be done better."
  5. Vicki Lawrence headlines FOX pilot

    That's kind of too bad. The writing wasn't exceptional but it wasn't as painful as most multcams are nowadays. It's so hard to do a sitcom that feels natural anymore, they're always so sterile and plastic. This one at least had a solid cast. I hope they all find better vehicles.
  6. I've been meaning to ask this for a while - is the original lounge still online? Since the last site upgrade, I've seen a "you don't have permission to view this" message when clicking on the Hall of Records link. Just wanted to check if this was intentional.
  7. New ‘Closer’ cover featuring L&D

    Nobody knew, huh? Except probably everybody knows now, since they dish the dirt over and over
  8. Gag Headlines

    Cynthia Duncan named runner-up in Carole Cook lookalike contest
  9. Desiree Anzalone

    I'm not an avid follower of their personal lives, so I'm not really familiar with Julia's history. What exactly is her story?
  10. Desiree Anzalone

    "Looks just like her" is an exaggeration, but I can see her resemblance to young Lucille, especially in that last shot.
  11. That's occurred to me as well. I think The Lucy Show's more obscure status may be why it hasn't come up yet - it seems to be when shows hit streaming platforms that Wokeus Dei get ahold of them. It's largely the most accessible programs out there that are ripe for offense scrutiny. As long as TLS remains primarily available through DVD, we should be okay, since they seldom use "old" technology.
  12. The Kate Smith drama is ridiculous. People really need to understand the context of the era - it may be wrong today, but it wasn't so back then, and it's not fair to judge Smith by the social norms of the present. Few people back then would've batted an eye at those songs, and they certainly weren't the only examples of the type, so I guess we need to obliterate every item of entertainment created in the past in order to protect everyone's feelings? Luvs, you're right, it's probably only a matter of time before someone over at Buzzfeed or Bustle opens up a Lucy book, learns about the "red scare" incident and proceeds to blow it completely out of proportion. Sanders supporters will undoubtedly tear down the various Lucy statues in protest. Your comment reminded me of a joke headline I did a few years ago: Shoot if you must this old redhead! - Running out of confederate monuments to target, Antifa turns attention to Lucille Ball statues, in order to send a message to those who disavow communism. How long before it isn't a joke?
  13. I've often wondered about Denning's never appearing on one of Lucy's TV shows. He could've made a good love interest for Lucy Carmichael. Did he ever discuss his time working with Lucy in later years? Was he bitter about her not wanting him to reprise his role on the TV series?
  14. Georgia Engel has passed away

    How very sad! She was a lovely lady and quite talented. And only 70, my goodness. My condolences to her friends and family. This is obviously a terribly sad day for Betty. Her guest appearances on Hot in Cleveland were always highlights. She and Betty had an ease to their interplay that was clearly indicative of their long friendship. I'm glad she left behind a body of work that will be remembered.
  15. ...I was sort of kidding with the Florida thing, you know? Not that it's a bad idea, per se, but I'd like to see some Connecticut episodes as well.
