What happens when one of your favorite television shows visits another one of your favorite television shows? Magic, that’s what! There’s a certain feeling you get from finding out your favorite characters exist in the same fantasy world as another one of your favorite characters, like you’ve been let in on some very special little secret (never mind that everyone else watching is in on that secret, too).
While some shows have recurring crossover characters — like the wonderful sharing of Ursula Buffay (Lisa Kudrow) on Friends and Mad About You — others are just a one-off, like the appearance of the cast of St. Elsewhere on the classic sitcom, Cheers. More recently, Parenthood jumped over to About A Boy and The Simpsons and Family Guy met in an epic battle (although that’s not our favorite Simpsons cross over — you’ll see). All this, plus the time Ray Romano »

"I was at a restaurant [with Stamos], we were having dinner and I was like, 'Oh, maybe this is a date,' but I didn't know," Poehler recalled. "Handsome men are really something else."
Stern points out that all signs show it was a date, seeing as the actors shared a meal and Stamos asked her out. "I've been on a date with him," Stern joked. "He's »

Although we're still not certain who she's playing, The Hunger Games: Catching Fire star Jena Malone is reuniting with Sucker Punch director Zach Snyder for a mystery role in the much-anticipated comic book showdown Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. Although it's far from confirmed, rumors have suggested that she might playing the Carrie Kelley Robin, Batman's sidekick from Frank Miller's epochal The Dark Knight Returns! We're sharing our thoughts on this week's Most Craved along with discussion about Eli Roth's just-announced plans to remake Cabin Fever with the same screenplay and the tremendous amount of nostalgia-driven franchises headed to television ("Full House," "Big," "Rush Hour," "Bachelor Party," and "Uncle Buck" just to name a few). »
The show is to be produced by Korea’s Group Eight and Asia Media Holding. Korean producer Lee Min-cheol is to direct, while Jeon Gyu-ah is among the Korean producers.
The Chinese show will star Eli, a Mandarin-speaking K-pop star from the Korean six-member music act U-Kiss.
The original show, itself adapted from a romantic graphic novel of the same title, played for 16 episodes on Kbs and presented a testy three-way love triangle involving a screenwriter, an actor and a jilted friend, a home that should not have been sold off and a fake marriage that surprisingly blossomed.
The producers did not announce the female lead who would take the role originally played by Song. Filming is expected to begin in December with broadcast in 2015.

Marla Sokoloff's family is expanding yet again! The Full House alumna is expecting her second child with husband, musician Alec Puro, her rep confirms to E! News. "Alec and I are beyond excited to be adding to our family and can't wait for Elliotte to be the best big sister ever (no pressure!)," the expectant star told People magazine who first broke the news. The timing works out perfectly for the Hollywood actress. The 33-year-old recently wrapped up a season of her new hit show The Fosters. In addition, Sokoloff and her husband are celebrating their fifth wedding anniversary next month. We'd say a new baby isn't the worst gift a happy couple could ask for. The »
November 14 will mark 26 years since the CBS sitcom Murphy Brown hit the airwaves. The series, which ran for 10 seasons and won 18 Emmy Awards (including a record-breaking five Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series wins for star Candice Bergen), also happened to be at the forefront of a political firestorm in its heyday. A show about a 40-something single mother and career woman (!) touched such a nerve that the Vice President of the United States singled out the show as an example of the decay of family values in America.
During a campaign speech on May 19, 1992, then-vp Dan Quayle stated, “Failing to support children one has fathered is wrong. We must be unequivocal about this. It doesn’t help matters when primetime TV has Murphy Brown, a character who supposedly epitomizes today’s intelligent, highly paid professional woman, mocking the importance of fathers by bearing a child alone »
It’s about to be a very Full House! Actress Marla Sokoloff and her husband Alec Puro are expecting their second child, Us Weekly confirms. "Alec and I are beyond excited to be adding to our family and can’t wait for Elliotte to be the best big sister ever (no pressure!),” the Full House alum, 33, tells Us. The couple previously welcomed daughter Elliotte in February 2012 after tying the knot in 2009. Puro is a California-based composer and the drummer for the band Deadsy. In addition to her role [...] »
"Scandal" appears to have moved past its dependence on cliffhangers “Scandal” was written around cliffhangers in its first three seasons, but the cliffhangers have now passed on to “How To Get Away with Murder.” As Joshua Alston says of “Scandal,” "It’s no longer a political thriller with heavy-to-a-fault spy genre flourishes, it’s 'Grey’s Anatomy' in the White House. And if that’s indeed what the writers are going for, the absence of a central, hashtag-friendly mystery makes perfect sense. I’ve been suspiciously anticipating this direction, but I’m far less worried than I was. If 'Like Father, Like Daughter' is any indication, that version of Scandal would be well-worth watching, if perhaps not the Twitter fuel it once was.” Plus: “Scandal” Secret Service agent talks about his big role.

YouTube musicians Ryan Higa (known to the online video masses as NigaHiga) and Josh Golden (aka Golden) are back with a new music video after their popular “Coffee Shop Love” collaboration. “Sweet Wholesome Girl” (“S.W.G.”) presents an untypical view of dating and romance as the musical duo raps about wanting to be with a good girl. In the video’s introduction, Higa and Golden commiserate over a clip with over 100 million views that’s just “a bunch of girls shaking their booties.” Higa states he’d much prefer a girl full of innocence and sweetness he can “watch Full House” with, before unsuccessfully trying to use a turnip (a popular vegetable on social media these days), beet, dough, and bread to segue into the music video portion. Some feminists would undoubtedly want to pick a bone with Higa and Golden for assuming a woman who is shaking her »

Full House creator Jeff Franklin has an empty house on his hands. But you'd need a few mansions full of cash to afford it.

The listing agents are The Agency’s Mauricio Umansky, Blair Chang and Brendan Fitzpatrick, the latter of whom stars on Rich Kids of Beverly Hills on E!.

We thought Norman Reedus took the prize for weirdest gift from a Walking Dead fan with the silicone breast implant he received, but now we’re starting to rethink our drink. That’s because Josh McDermitt, who plays Eugene on the zombie drama, stopped by our Entertainment Weekly Radio studio (SiriusXM, channel 105) the other day, and by the time he left, we were all deeply disturbed. Before we proceed any further, I am just going to warn you that if you are easily grossed out or offended by things, then you should probably just stop reading this post altogether right »

Everywhere you look...there's a new rumor in regard to the reported Full House revival—but Lori Loughlin is determined to set the record straight. E! News caught up with the 50-year-old beauty at Michael Kors' special dinner celebrating the launch of Claiborne Swanson Frank's new book Young Hollywood in Beverly Hills, Calif., on Thursday where she dished on the never-ending reports claiming Danny Tanner's TV family is planning to reunite on the small screen.

Good news, fans of Eighties coming-of-age comedy: Zoltar has granted your wish for a half-hour TV show loosely based on Big, the 1988 classic starring Tom Hanks. According to Variety, Fox has acquired the project from Kevin Biegel and Mike Royce, executive producers of that network's Enlisted.
The as-yet-untitled show will explore themes similar to the movie, specifically "what it means to be an adult and what it means to be a kid, and how in today’s world those two things are more confused than ever." Biegel, who also co-created the comedy Cougar Town, »
Continuing with the current TV trend of mining Gen X and Gen Y nostalgia for project ideas, Fox has bought a half-hour comedy loosely based on the Tom Hanks movie “Big” from “Enlisted” exec producers Kevin Biegel and Mike Royce via 20th Century Fox Television Studios.
The event series, which Biegel and Royce will write and executive produce, follows the message of the 1988 movie and plans to delve into “what it means to be an adult and what it means to be a kid, and how in today’s world those two things are more confused than ever.”
Aside from their partnership on “Enlisted” for Fox, which Biegel also created, Biegel is known for co-creating “Cougar Town” while Royce was the co-creator/executive producer of “Men of a Certain Age” and the executive producer/showrunner of HBO’s “Lucky Louie” and NBC’s “1600 Penn.” Both men are represented by UTA and Morris Yorn. »

Too late to make fun of Tgif sitcoms? Never. This digital short from last night's Chris Pratt-hosted episode of "SNL" is a spot-on parody of all the things that made shows like "Full House" and "Boy Meets World" ridiculous, from the bland interstitial music to the on-the-nose sermonizing ("If they don't see that, then they don't deserve to be your friend") to the awful, awful post-grunge fashions (I'm pretty sure I've seen Dave Coulier in every single one of these outfits). There's not much of a punchline here, but then a punchline isn't really needed: the joke is just how closely this sketch approximates the look and feel of its deadly-dull targets. »

Listen up, Netflix.
You've given us countless hours of binge-watching splendor, but we want more. Sure, your exclusive series are great ("House of Cards"! "Orange Is the New Black"!) and the fact that you have every season of "The Walking Dead" available to watch 24/7 is killer, but there are still a few cherished TV series that are missing from your reasonably priced, wonderfully accessible streaming service. And that, my lost weekend-inducing friend, is a crime.
So here, Netflix, are 34 TV shows -- in no particular order -- that deserve your immediate consideration. (Please stop denying us the ability to relive the '80s and '90s.)
