Secret History of TV: Whatever Happened to ‘Very Special Episodes’?

5 August 2015 6:00 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

There's a problem afflicting our nation: a lack of "very special episodes" on modern sitcoms. So in this, a very special episode of "Vulture's Secret History of Television," we take a look at the cringe-inducing phenomenon of lighthearted shows making abrupt tonal shifts to focus on problems like addiction, sexual assault, and proper use of CPR (no, really, there was a Punky Brewster episode about that). How did these episodes emerge? Why did they disappear? Tune in and learn some important lessons. Afterward, watch our past episodes, on topics like swearing and lesbian kisses. And tune in on Wednesdays for new episodes of "Vulture's Secret History of Television." »

A Dubious History of Exclamation Points in TV Show Titles

30 June 2015 12:00 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

When Jeb Bush revealed the slogan for his 2016 presidential campaign, most thinking people had pretty much the same reaction: Hey, that looks like the title of a sit-com! Clearly, the use of the exclamation mark was meant to distinguish George W.’s younger brother from the baker’s dozen of Republicans seeking the nomination, perhaps by making him seem a bit more more lively and vibrant. Maybe the former Florida Governor was trying to seem current by utilizing a punctuation that these days litters every one of our texts and emails. (If you say you’re excited to see me, but don't use at least one exclamation, how can I really believe you?) Generally, but not always, television shows that have dared to wield the exclamation point in their titles have done so with a precise purpose in mind, whether to demonstrate urgency, irony, or just plain enthusiasm. Occasionally, the »

TV Review: ‘Younger’

30 March 2015 8:45 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

If TV Land is experiencing the network version of a midlife crisis, “Younger” marks a promising and more ambitious new direction. Created by Darren Star, the series zeroes in on a generational divide in a broadly comic manner that becomes more interesting and thoughtful as the show progresses, exposing the mistakes people make in their 20s, and the concerns they have about encroaching middle age in their 40s. Not perfect but highly watchable, it’s the kind of signature program that should appeal to its target audience, and perhaps even help chart the Viacom-owned network’s course from “Hot in Cleveland” to whatever comes next.

At the show’s core is a classic romantic comedy setup, which Star (who wrote and directed the back-to-back episodes of the premiere) proceeds to mine and expand upon over the serialized season: Sutton Foster plays Liza, a 40-year-old divorced mom whose 18-year-old daughter is studying abroad. »

Mr. Belvedere Turns 30, but He May Be Even Older Than You Think

15 March 2015 5:20 AM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

On March 15, 1985, ABC debuted Mr. Belvedere at 8:30 p.m. as a midseason replacement airing immediately after that other show about a wise-cracking butler, Benson. The show centered on a proper British butler (Christopher Hewett) adjusting to life working for the Owens family of Beaver Falls, Pennsylvania. And for six seasons, characters on the show and the people watching them chose not to think too much about how strange it was that a middle-class family would have a live-in butler. The show hit that family-comedy sweet spot right along with Family Ties, Growing Pains, Full House and The Cosby Show, »

The 38-year-old is already mom to daughters Poet and Jagger.  That's when she turned to the diet program that's helped stars like Soleil's close friend, Melissa Joan Hart, shed the pounds.  "For me, I just want to feel great. But carrying an extra 20 plus pounds started to weigh me down – literally,” the actress explained.  “I want to encourage moms to feel good about themselves. I think it’s important to empower ourselves. We have kids and we love our kids. But we still have ourselves.
