  1. Rose Marie weighs in on Harvey Weinstein

    Most of the time he wasn’t funny with his writers! Bob seems like a total reprehensible asshole, but the stories about his awful antics are funny. Well, he was pals with Lucy, and he certainly never crossed the line with her. I literally cannot picture what Mamie Van Doren would’ve looked like at 16.
  2. A week or so ago, I watched TV Antenna again. It might be my all-time favorite from TLS. The big physical comedy scene on the roof is BRILLIANT (not only the way it’s written, but the way it’s staged, filmed, and performed- perfection), but this episode has some hilarious dialogue. Lucy in particular seems to be on a roll- not that she isn’t always great (duh) but there’s a spark in her that you don’t often see. Recently, I was at a beloved secondhand bookstore in the city that also sells DVDs and vinyl and stuff like that. Out of curiosity, I picked out a couple of Sing Along with Mitch albums that were in excellent condition. The music is perfectly fine, but it’s no Papa Oo-Mow-Mow. Heck, it’s not even a Long, Long Trail!
  3. Lucy Sightings!

    The newest episode of Ken Levine’s podcast features his discussion with a seasoned celebrity interviewer, who recounts lots and lots of stories about old and new stars. The episode is a lot like Gilbert Gotfried’s podcast. Lucy is one of the first stars talked about, and they’ve got some funny stuff on her. There’s a brief mention of her serving KFC to her guests... is that true? I’ve never heard that story before. I should also note that she’s only referred to as “Lucy”, but everyone automatically knows who’s being talked about. THAT’S star power.
  4. The 50th anniversary special was pretty great! I noticed that Carol called Jim Carrey “kid”. I wonder where she got that from... The closing where everyone sang the theme song and Carol cried was very emotional, even if they had to conspicuously edit around Kevin Spacey.
  5. Whaddaya mean outlived? As far as I know, one half of that twosome is still kickin’!
  6. Lucy Sightings!

    I hear good things about Bombshell. Is it worth checking out?
  7. Rose Marie weighs in on Harvey Weinstein

    Lemme tell ya, when I saw that Angie Lans was trending on Twitter, I was just relieved to see that she wasn’t dead. I’ve read her full comments from the interview and (as usual) the big picture is a lot less damning. In this day and age, we’ve got much bigger fish to fry than a 92 year-old superstar and her questionable social commentary. If Angela Lansbury wants to stand in the middle of 5th Avenue and shoot somebody, I won’t enjoy her body of work any less.

    Prolific TV director and occasional actor Peter Baldwin has died at 86. Besides directing episodes of some of the very best sitcoms of all time (Dick Van Dyke, Mary Tyler Moore, Bob Newhart), he also did a few Life With Lucys! The list of shows he covered is staggering.
  9. I can’t believe it’s been four years since the story of Valerie’s diagnosis broke. Its great that she’s still here and still with it- not to mention how great it is that they’re making such medical advancements! I’ve heard a little Oscar buzz about My Mom and The Girl- I look forward to seeing it!

    Della Reese was always a favorite. Very sad.

    The brilliant Ann Wedgeworth has died at 83 after a long illness. Always enjoyed her on Three’s Company and Evening Shade.
  12. Real Life Lucy

    While on the seven hour drive home from our football team’s semifinal game in the Upper Peninsula, I happened to notice a Snapchat Filter for the town we were in: Bagley, Michigan!!!
  13. Vicki Lawrence headlines FOX pilot

    It’s weird to think that they’re all retirement age! Also, I LOVE the showrunners! I think this is their first venture outside of It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia. Here’s hoping it goes well.
  14. Other Woman and NG as RN. Something I notice about post-broken leg episodes are that they frequently have Lucy filling the role of the “reactor”. The Lucy character is probably at her all-time least wacky. There are many times where she seems to be the only sane person in the building. Ain’t THAT a change of pace!
  15. Ken Levine recently talked about clip shows on his blog. The Office did one at one point, and I remember the wraparounds being funny. When I was little I had a hard time distinguishing The Golden Girls clip shows from their frequent “vignette” episodes- I’d wonder why I never saw the full Valentine’s Nudist Camp episode. And on a side note, I’ve only ever heard Don Loper speak in The Fashion Show, but I’d 100% be able to pick his voice out of a lineup.
