Remembering the Best and Worst of ABC’s Tgif Lineup

27 June 2014 1:11 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

In fall 1993, a coming-of-age comedy called “Boy Meets World” premiered on ABC’s “Tgif” Friday night lineup; 21 years later, its sequel series, “Girl Meets World,” is debuting on the Disney Channel with many of the original cast members reprising their roles for a new generation.

Few could have anticipated the enduring popularity of the family sitcom — which starred Ben Savage as Cornelius “Cory” Matthews and Danielle Fishel as his first love and eventual wife, Topanga Lawrence — but ABC’s Tgif block was responsible for a number of iconic comedies during its initial run between 1989 and 2000, many of which still live on in syndication today. And, as with all networks, the roster was also responsible for some spectacular trainwrecks, with concepts so surreal, you’d think a kid pitched them while on a sugar high.

Video: James Van Der Beek's Totally Embarrassing Tgif Cameo Unearthed

25 June 2014 4:30 PM, PDT | TooFab | See recent TooFab news »

Before he was Dawson, James Van Der Beek was alien food!This week, the Internet did what it does best and uncovered a gem from the actor's past -- showing him on the extremely short-lived Tgif sitcom "Aliens In the Family" back in 1996. The show revolved around a mixed human/extraterrestrial family living in the suburbs, and this episode found James taking one of the daughters out on a date.Let's just say it didn't go well, check out the clip above.The show only lasted two weeks on ABC's popular Friday night lineup and it's not hard to see why.After Variety posted the clip earlier today, Van Der Beek took to Facebook to talk about the embarrassing role ... and revealed how it cost him a pretty sweet gig!"Busted! One of my very early TV gigs unearthed, somehow," he wrote. "This was a show that was So good »

Watch Teenage James Van Der Beek in Surreal ’90s Tgif Comedy ‘Aliens in the Family’

24 June 2014 3:59 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

The impending premiere of Disney Channel’s “Girl Meets World” on June 27 has us feeling nostalgic for the halcyon days of ABC’s “Tgif” line-up, when shows like “Boy Meets World,” “Perfect Strangers” and “Full House” captured the cultural consciousness with wholesome storylines and family-friendly laughs.

One Tgif show you probably don’t remember is a short-lived sitcom called “Aliens in the Family,” arguably a precursor to ABC’s equally surreal sci-fi comedy “The Neighbors.”

The plot revolved around single dad Doug Brody (John Bedford Lloyd), who was abducted by a spacecraft one night and subsequently met single alien mom Cookie (Margaret Trigg). Naturally, after such a romantic meet-cute, the two fell in love, got married, and tried to live a normal life on Earth as a mixed family with their five kids, three of whom were created as puppets by Jim Henson’s Creature Shop.

Despite that promising premise, »

Robot Chickens and Selfish Milkshakes: 'Adult Swim' 101

13 June 2014 7:40 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

There was a certain point in history, somewhere between The Simpsons and Daria, when TV animation ceased to be the sole provenance of kids drooling over their morning bowls of Lucky Charms. These days, cartoons for grown-ups are not only ubiquitous, but hilariously twisted and high-quality to boot — and that's due in large part to a phenomenon called Adult Swim. What began as a freaky little block of late-night programming has evolved into a vast, even-freakier universe of animated and live-action series with a sardonic, absurdist sense of humor that's »

Katie Holmes has been making a comeback ever since she split with Tom Cruise, with the upcoming The Giver being her most high profile project of five slated to come out this year. And what's a woman to do when she's booked the busiest year of her professional career that doesn't involve James Van Der Beek? Why, start lining up next year's projects, of course. Her first for 2015 has her reuniting with a more A-List co-star from her past: Academy Award Winner and Mrs. Tingle herself, Helen Mirren. Deadline scooped the news that Ms. Holmes would be starring in the film about a woman who, with the help of her lawyer grandson, sues the government of Switzerland.

28 May 2014 9:01 AM, PDT | TVSeriesFinale.com | See recent TVSeriesFinale news »

It looks like the short run of Friends with Better Lives just got even shorter. CBS has decided to pull the already cancelled comedy from their schedule effective immediately.

Friends with Better Lives follows the lives of six young people who are at various stages of their lives -- married, divorced, newly engaged, and single -- with each wondering if the others have it better. The cast includes Majandra Delfino, Kevin Connolly, Brooklyn Decker, Rick Donald, Zoe Lister-Jones, and James Van Der Beek.

The network cancelled the show after five episodes had aired but it seemed like they planned to let all 13 installments run. Execs have now replaced future airings with reruns of Mom, a freshman sitcom that's been renewed for a second season.

Seth Rogen and Judd Apatow Respond to "Insulting" Article About Shooting

27 May 2014 11:05 AM, PDT | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

Seth Rogen took to Twitter on Monday to address a Washington Post film critic's take on how Seth's movies may have impacted Santa Barbara shooter Elliot Rodger. In her piece, published on Sunday, critic Ann Hornaday wrote about Rodger's disturbing YouTube video diaries, in which he repeatedly talks about seeking revenge against the women who weren't attracted to him: "How many students watch outsized frat-boy fantasies like Neighbors and feel, as Rodger did, unjustly shut out of college life that should be full of 'sex and fun and pleasure'? How many men, raised on a steady diet of Judd Apatow comedies in which the schlubby arrested adolescent always gets the girl, find that those happy endings constantly elude them and conclude, 'It's not fair'?" Seth replied to Hornaday on Twitter, and Judd quickly followed suit, prompting a social media conversation about her article and their movies. Take a look at their tweets below. »

Friends with Better Lives: Cancelled Sitcom to Be Saved?

11 May 2014 9:36 AM, PDT | TVSeriesFinale.com | See recent TVSeriesFinale news »

Yesterday, CBS cancelled Friends with Better Lives after just five episodes. That's a pretty quick decision. The studio thinks it's too quick.

Friends with Better Lives revolves around six young people who are at various stages of their lives -- married, divorced, newly engaged, and single. Each wonders if the others have it better. The cast includes Majandra Delfino, Kevin Connolly, Brooklyn Decker, Rick Donald, Zoe Lister-Jones, and James Van Der Beek.

The sitcom premiered to positive numbers (following the series finale of How I Met Your Mother) but the ratings have fallen quite a bit in subsequent weeks.

The numbers were too low for CBS but 20th Century Fox Television, the studio that produces the show, has decided to try shopping the series elsewhere.

CBS will presumably air the rest of the original 13 episodes so »
