  1. "Roseanne" - 2018 Revival on ABC

    Spare me, please. Valerie Jarrett didn't just show up out of nowhere. She's been a high profile person for years now and has never hidden her ethnicity. And that goes for Susan Rice, too. So when Roseanne tweeted "Susan Rice is a man with big swinging ape balls," did she also not know Susan Rice is African American? Give me a break! Roseanne tweeted that Hillary Clinton is a "jew hater" (never mind that Clinton's son-in-law is Jewish), that Huma Abedin is "a filthy nazi whore," lied about George Soros, calling him a " a nazi who turned in his fellow Jews 2 be murdered in German concentration camps & stole their wealth" (all lies), has tweeted anti-transgender comments and negative tweets about the gay community, and tweeted multiple conspiracy theories like "pizzagate," and on and on. ABC should have never put this woman back on the air. People like Roseanne Barr should not be normalized because that just gives them a bigger platform. What she represents with her words in recent years is the very darkest and most dangerous nature of our society. Our country is in a very precarious position at this moment in our nation's history (read "How Democracies Die"). Our defenses are dwindling, so anything commercial entities like ABC can do to push back and protect our values needs to be supported.
  2. My apologies if this has already been posted. I've never seen this interview before.
  3. I've never understood why in this episode, while singing The Twelve Days of Christmas, when they get to the part about "three French hens," they sing "three red hens" instead. I've looked online at the lyrics from various sources and they all say "three French hens," not red hens. I've never heard "red" sung in place of "French" anywhere except in this episode of The Lucy Show. Does anybody know why they did that? It seems rather bizarre to me.
  4. Exaggerate much? The queen of comedy took Lowe by the hand and insisted they watch part of the show together. They sat, watched and then 20 minutes later, Lowe’s Oscar night took a final turn for the worse when Ball asked him a favor. “‘Darling I have a splitting headache. Could yet get me some aspirin?’ And so I went got what I thought was an aspirin. I gave it to her and she died 48 hours later,” Lowe said, stunning his fellow comedians who had been sharing stories of their worst, most embarrassing moments on stage. https://pagesix.com/2016/07/18/rob-lowe-tells-all-on-how-he-killed-lucille-ball/
  5. Lucy in the Cher musical

    Not about advice on divorcing Sonny, but about Sonny and Cher and Lucy: From Vanity Fair: Although the couple was wildly successful, they lived pretty traditionally. Working long days on the set, never into drugs, Cher would go home almost every night and cook dinner with her husband. “I think I went out two times alone the entire time I was married to Sonny.” The couple spent a lot of time with an older Hollywood crowd that included Lucille Ball, Jack Benny, and Henry Fonda. According to Cher, “I knew Lucy since I was little. I was crazy about her. My mom was an extra on her show. One time, we were at this party, and Johnny Carson got really pissed off at me, because it was the second inauguration of Nixon. I thought Nixon was a big idiot, and Lucy thought he was a big idiot, and she was making jokes, and I was hysterically laughing. Carson got furious and said that I should get out of the room because I was being disrespectful. He would have never said boo to Lucy—she would have chewed him up and spit him out.” https://www.vanityfair.com/news/2010/12/cher-201012
  6. Old Soggy Crotch

    To be honest, I had wondered if that was just a rumored nickname. It was totally bleeped out on Merv. I wonder how people like Neil so long ago got the inside scoop on that nickname. By the way, to save others the time the big reveal here is at 4:32.
  7. Old Soggy Crotch

    This is the only time I've ever heard those words "soggy crotch" spoken in a TV interview. They were bleeped out on Merv, but not here. At least not i what has been posted. I wonder if this made it on the air without a bleep?
  8. This Concludes Zsa Zsa Watch

    Francesca Hilton: "My mother, Zsa Zsa Gabor, always wanted to be a princess, so she married a queen."
  9. I never took the time to watch Everybody Hates Chris, but I'm a fan of Chris Rock, and Wikipedia states this: Everybody Hates Chris received critical acclaim. The American Film Institute selected Everybody Hates Chris as one of the best 10 television series of 2007, stating that the show "provides a very real look at growing up in America – a challenge that demands a discussion of race and class often absent from television today."[6] Everybody Hates Chris was named one of the Best School Shows of All Time by AOL TV.[7] Common Sense Media's Marjorie Kase and Shanel Walker & Emily Kofoed gave the show 4 stars, and said it was "a prime example of how to take serious issues and approach them in a humorous yet thought-provoking way. The series is innovative, funny, and stereotype-defying – enjoyable for teens and their parents."
  10. I Love Lucy and The Lucy Show were both on MeTV Sunday afternoon. They aired "Lucy's Italian Movie" and "Lucy Buys a Sheep."
  11. Yes, the "Leave It to Beaver" clip show is included in the syndication package. It's the series finale. LITB is an incredibly well-written series, except for that clip show thanks to an illogical premise which has the family is looking through a photo album and reminiscing. Each photo is from a particular scene from the series. This is a really goofy set-up because it would mean that when those scenes took place, someone in the family was standing by with a camera. For example, one of the clips is from an episode where Beaver and Larry Mondello are at Larry Mondello's house and sneak into Larry's sister's bedroom. The picture in the photo album is of Beaver and Larry in his sister's bedroom. They were alone in the bedroom, so who was supposed to have taken that picture? Makes no sense. Interesting. I always preferred the HOME LIFE to the office scenes. I've never enjoyed that Sally/Buddy/Mel banter in the office. I always found it annoying and unfunny. But Dick and Mary I thought had amazing on-screen chemistry together. And Mary's comedic talent shone through brightly from almost the very beginning.
  12. My neighborhood business community has a Facebook page. This showed up on their page the other day: http://www.imagebam.com/image/dbb963695034223
  13. Rose Marie weighs in on Harvey Weinstein

    Count me as another who never found Bob Hope funny. His success and long career have always been a complete mystery to me. I've tried to watch some of his old movies from during his heyday, but I find them painfully boring. His delivery leaves me cold. And his TV specials that were on when I was growing up were consistently awful -- corny and unfunny. He was supposedly Johnny Carson's least favorite guest. Carson had hundreds of guests on his show, so that's saying something! As for his reputation, this may have been mentioned before, but a guy who researched him and wrote a biography of him a few years ago confirmed that Hope had been married to another woman prior to marrying Delores (something Hope had denied). And not only that, Hope was still married to that first wife during a period of time when he claimed he was already married to Delores. And this biographer was unable to find any evidence Hope was ever actually married to Delores! Very bizarre.
  14. Jim Nabors dies at 87

    Wow, great analysis! Gomer Pyle USMC was so incredibly popular back in the day, it surprises me it hasn't lived on the way TAGS has. I caught a few reruns a couple years ago and still found it to be a fun show. I don't really remember it from its original airings, but it was very heavily rerun during the '70s when I was growing up. I was still seeing regular reruns in the early '80s when I was in college. After that it seemed to fade away.
  15. Jim Nabors dies at 87

    And there goes another big chunk of my childhood. I probably saw every episode of Gomer Pyle, U.S.M.C. multiple times when I was a kid. And it was a delight to me every time he appeared on The Andy Griffith Show. He seemed like such a kind man. He had a long life, but I wish he could have stuck around longer. I think he was close to Carol Burnett. You all probably know that he was her special guest star every year for the season premiere of The Carol Burnett Show. She called him her good luck charm.
