Trivia

"The Good News" was the *very last* series of any kind produced by MTM Enterprises; the company was absorbed into 20th Century Fox Television and ceased to exist after this series left the air (MTM's parent company, International Family Entertainment, had just been purchased by 21st Century Fox, Inc.); the few surviving MTM series (e.g. "The Pretender") were then produced under the 20th Century Fox Television banner. Fox now owns all the MTM series and telefilms, including "The Good News." See more »

Excellent!
6 October 1999 | by See all my reviews

This show was great. Not as good as Amen, but very entertaining. I love watching it on tv. So funny, and well-acted. This was good for people of all ages... what a needed change in tv!! Even though it is about a church, it is not like TOUCHED BY AN ANGEL which pushes the "Christian" image.
