Will the ‘Murphy Brown’ revival earn Tyne Daly a seventh Emmy?

Will the ‘Murphy Brown’ revival earn Tyne Daly a seventh Emmy?
Is a seventh Emmy in the cards for Tyne Daly? The six-time champ has joined the cast of CBS’ upcoming “Murphy Brown” revival, putting her in the running to move up on the all-time performance winners list.

Daly will play Phyllis, the sister of departed bar owner Phil from the sitcom’s original run. Pat Corley, who played Phil, passed away in 2006 at 76. Phyllis has taken over the bar and, as CBS describes, “it’s evident that the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree.”

An Emmy favorite, Daly has won six trophies — four for her lead role on “Cagney & Lacey,” one each for her supporting turns on “Christy” and “Judging Amy” — tying her for third place for winningest performers alongside Art Carney, Carl Reiner and Tim Conway. A seventh win would tie her for second place with Ed Asner, Mary Tyler Moore and Allison Janney. Cloris Leachman

Review: Batman: The Brave and the Bold The Complete Third Season

  • Comicmix
Well, it’s about time. For the last twenty-five years or so, we’ve had one animated Batman series after another but to be honest only two are really good: Batman the Animated Series and Batman: The Brave and the Bold. The latter has been slowly coming out on Blu-Ray with season one in 2013 and season two in 2015. This month, we’re getting the third and final season and the good news is that it is as entertaining as remembered.

After increasingly odd interpretations of Batman, Warner Animation decided to go retro and bring back the Batman of the 1960s, who was not afraid to operate in daylight and would partner with just about anyone in a mask as the need arose. Producer James Tucker saw to it that it honored the comic the series took its name from while modernizing it with contemporary characters and characterizations. The result was

It Came From The Tube: Halloween Edition

Halloween is a time when regular folk allow themselves to see the world as us horror lovers do – weird and wonderful, sinister mischief with tongue in cheek under (and over) tones. They watch that scary movie they’ve been meaning to get to for the past year, string up skeletons, and parade around at office parties in the latest ironic costumes (expect tons of Trumps and Weiners this year). But for the fearful faithful, this is our workaday; we watch the films daily, display our rooms with terror trinkets, and dress up as our favourite icons at constant conventions around the globe. So what separates the actual day of Halloween from our normal routine? TV viewing, of course.

‘Tis the season when every station trots out horror programming, sometimes for weeks on end leading up to and including the big night. A lot of this is for Johnny and Jane

SAG Life Achievement Honoree Carol Burnett On Her Career and Giving Back

SAG Life Achievement Honoree Carol Burnett On Her Career and Giving Back
On Jan. 30, Carol Burnett will receive the SAG Life Achievement Award for her professional achievements and her humanitarianism. The legendary star of television, stage and film is acutely aware of the roots of both.

Show business held out an escape from the impoverished, chaotic, hotel room childhood she vividly depicted in bestselling memoir “One More Time,” and its stage adaptation “Hollywood Arms,” co-authored by her late daughter Carrie Hamilton.

The biz also allowed her to spread some sunshine around, though as she says, “not at first. We couldn’t give back because we had nothing to give. But once I started to make even mild salaries, I wanted to help other people, starting with members of my family and spreading out.”

Grandmother “Nanny” and Mama scorned young Carol’s pipe dream of attending college, let alone living the glamorous life of her beloved film stars. Yet the still-mysterious appearance of

20 years ago today: ‘Jumanji’ opened in theaters
20 years ago today, “Jumanji” had its theatrical release. Though the film had lukewarm reaction from critics, it was a box office success and has remained a favorite among family adventure movies. The film is based on Chris Van Allsburg’s children’s book about a game that’s “a young people's jungle adventure especially designed for the bored and restless.” It’s at once terrifying (those monkeys!) and funny (plenty of laughs supplied by the late Robin Williams) and touching (the relief and joy in Williams’ face when he realizes this nightmare of a game is finally over). A remake is in the works and set for a Christmas 2016 release. Other notable December 15 happenings in pop culture history: • 1939: “Gone With the Wind” premiered at Loew’s Grand Theater in Atlanta, the climax of three days of festivities in the Georgia city to celebrate the film’s debut. • 1966: Walt Disney died in Burbank,
