Trivia

During a 2018 interview on SiriusXM's The Michelle Collins Show, Cybill Shepherd said that this show was abruptly canceled, despite its popularity, because she refused to have sex with CBS executive Les Moonves. She recounted that he invited her to a private dinner at which he complained that "his wife didn't turn him on, some mistress didn't turn him on," and then he invited her to come home with him. She refused, and "quite shortly" afterward, the showrunners started getting executive notes forbidding them to discuss topics (such as menstruation and menopause) that were previously fine, and soon after that the show was canceled. This was one of many accusations of sexual misconduct and assault levied against Moonves in 2018. See more »

What a cast
25 February 2012 | by buckrulzeSee all my reviews

Although I was never aware of this show while it run during it's 95 thru 98 seasons I have caught all the reruns on the TV Guide Channel. I wish I had know of it back then so that I could have written and had begged for them to keep it going. It truly was a laugh a minute series. The chemistry between all the actors was so well casted but I have to say that the writing and the back and forth of Cybill and Mary Ann was magic. I have always loved both these actresses but I have to say that Christine Beranski's talents have been so underrated. I would love it if they were to ever bring it back or even just do an anniversary show. Does anyone know why it wasn't renewed? Bad time slot? Network decision? I always thought that Cybill would had been a much better lead in the movie version of Mama Mia. Wonder if she was every considered.
