Roseanne Revival: Dan's Fate Revealed (We'll Give You One Guess)

19 May 2017 3:31 PM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

This is the kind of revisionist history we can get behind.

Sources confirm that Roseanne‘s forthcoming eight-episode revival on ABC will, as many suspected, undo the series-ending death of John Goodman’s Dan. “Dan is very much alive,” a source tells TVLine. “They’re going to pretend like it never even happened.”

The Big Bang Theory: CBS Hopes for More Than 12 Seasons

18 May 2017 2:40 PM, PDT | TVSeriesFinale.com | See recent TVSeriesFinale news »

If its up to CBS CEO Les Moonves, you won't have to worry about The Big Bang Theory TV show being cancelled for a long time, and not just because CBS already renewed the sitcom for its 11th and 12th seasons, back in March. During the Tiffany Network's Upfront breakfast, Moonves said he hopes it runs beyond that, and wishes the network had held onto Ray Romano's Everybody Loves Raymond, for a bit longer, too. The Big Bang Theory follows two book smart, socially inept Caltech physicists, Leonard Hofstadter (Johnny Galecki) and Sheldon Cooper (Jim Parsons), as well as their friends. The CBS cast also includes Kaley Cuoco, Mayim Bialik, Simon Helberg, Melissa Rauch, and Kunal Nayyar. Read More… »

Author: Scott Davis

Every hero has a beginning so goes the proverb – whether it’s superheroes, secret agents or television characters, the prequel has always been a hive of story possibilities. Now CBS is taking one their most beloved characters in recent memory and returning to his pre-teen years.

Young Sheldon, the new show from the makers of The Big Bang Theory, tells the story of our favourite genius Sheldon Cooper and takes us back to his life when he was a 9-year-old child prodigy trying to wrestle with his immense smartness, school and growing up in Texas with his brother and twin sister (who we have seen in the show previously) and his parents.

The show is executive produced by co-Big Bang creator Chuck Lorre as well as Steven Molaro and Jim Parsons, who plays Sheldon on Tbbt. In fact, it was Parsons who came up with the idea »

‘The Odd Couple’ Canceled by CBS After 3 Seasons

15 May 2017 11:07 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

CBS has canceled “The Odd Couple.”

Starring Matthew Perry and Thomas Lennon, the multi-camera comedy appeared ripe for cancellation in November, when CBS decided not to extend its 13-episode order. In its third season, the series averaged a 1.0 rating in the 18-49 demo and 5 million total viewers, according to Nielsen live-plus-same day data. Those numbers would be considered solid but unspectacular by the standards of some networks, but were low for CBS, whose comedies tend to rate higher than those of several competitors.

The latest adaptation of the 1965 play by Neil Simon, “The Odd Couple” starred Perry and Lennon as Oscar Madison and Felix Unger — the mismatched bachelor roommates portrayed by Walter Matthau and Jack Lemmon in the 1968 film and by Jack Klugman and Tony Randall in the series that aired from 1970 to 1975 on ABC.

Produced by CBS Television Studios, “The Odd Couple” was executive produced by Perry, Eric Tannenbaum, Kim Tannenbaum »
