Valerie Harper Is 'Cancer-Free'
"I'm absolutely cancer-free!" Harper told Closer Weekly. "My last scans have been positive, and my doctors are very happy. [The oncologist] looked at the scans and said, 'Oh my God, Valerie, this is very encouraging!' "
While her doctor is wary of telling the legendary comedic actress that she’s in remission, he’s more than happy with what the scans are showing. "My doctor doesn't use that term [remission],” said Harper. “He likes to say, 'I give you a treatment, and it's either responsive or non-responsive — and you are having a phenomenal response.'"
As part of her treatment regiment, Harper takes several pills in a “pulse does” – at one sitting, once per week.
Harper's Terminal Diagnosis
Yesterday, Ed told you that This Week with George Stephanopoulos hired anti-gay pundit Laura Ingraham. Salon‘s Alex Pareene says that’s just the latest step in a rightward lurch for the Sunday morning talk show, one that involves hiring conservative pundits who make for terrible television. But, really, if you want to watch a Sunday morning talk show, you should be watching Up with Steve Kornacki. Under Kornacki, Up is a lot more political, and Kornacki has turned out to be incredibly skilled at asking the tough questions that cut to the truth of the matter.

Rage Magazine has a great interview with Cheyenne Jackson about growing up in a small town, working in sales before becoming an actor, meeting Tina Fey, and his relationship with the gay press, which has soured. “No one had really ever said anything bad about me and that was the hardest thing. With everything that has happened over the last year and a half, all of the stuff in the press, I kind of got raked over the coals. As much as I like to pretend that it doesn’t matter, it did. I’m just like everybody else; of course I want you to like me. I am amazed how quickly the press can turn on you. It’s especially true of the gay press at times. Don »

Remember when George Burns and Gracie Allen used to plug Carnation Evaporated Milk in live TV ads during their 1950s TV series The George Burns And Gracie Allen Show? Of course you don’t! But live ads using show cast members, in character and on set, did not used to be “news” — much less a scoop in the New York Times‘ business section. And, 60 years from now, when a future generation is watching on their glasses a live broadcast of some happy-zombie-family comedy starring some Hollywood It Couple, replete with product promotions by the happy zombies, they will think back to today’s Nyt report (“Commercials to Go Live With Show Cast Members”) about the airing of two whole live ads during the live season debuts of TV Land‘s Hot In Cleveland and The Soul Man, and think “How quaint.” The cast of Hot In Cleveland — Valerie Bertinelli, Jane Leeves, »

TV Land's first big success in original sitcoms is aiming to stay hot by starting a season live.
"Hot in Cleveland" begins its fifth round the same way it came back in the middle of its fourth, with stars Valerie Bertinelli, Wendie Malick, Jane Leeves and Betty White performing the episode as viewers see it (in the Eastern half of the country) Wednesday, March 26. Immediately after, Season 3 of the "Cleveland" spinoff "The Soul Man" will debut the same way, with Cedric the Entertainer and his cast also going live.
Linking the halves of the event, White and Cedric will appear in both series, to be shown on tape on the West Coast but with no modifications. "Hot in Cleveland" normally is done in front of a studio audience, as was the comedy that made Bertinelli famous, "One Day at a Time" ... but she confirms the live-telecast aspect doesn't mean less nerves. »

BBC America has ordered its first original comedy. Almost Royal follows two distant relations of the British royal family (Ed Gamble and Amy Hoggart) who have no useful skills as they take a tour of the United States with a camera crew they hired.
TVLine talked with Chris Carmack about his Nashville character and where his mind is as he heads towards a marriage of convenience, “I honestly believe that he is deluding himself immensely. The career aspect of it is probably one of the biggest reasons he’s deluding himself… But I don’t think we could even remotely like Will if there wasn’t some degree of self-delusion, because what he’s clearly gonna do to this young girl, it’s gonna break her heart – or he’s gonna »
