Few shows in TV history have seen their fates reversed.

The following slideshow rounds up 60 cancelled shows that came back. The reasons for resuscitation are wide-ranging,

The long-lasting variety show served as incubator for more than a few major future stars throughout its run, and during its second iteration in the 1990s, Justin Timberlake, Ryan Gosling, Britney Spears, and Christina Aguilera all shared airtime as Mousketeers. Here’s a look back at the biggest stars who made appearances on the show.

The Journey of 'The Honeymooners' — How It Went From TV Sketch to Beloved Sitcom

Back in 1950s and '60s television, you really never saw a family struggling to get by. But then came The Honeymooners. Think about it: I Love Lucy, The Andy Griffith Show, Leave It to Beaver, My Three Sons — usually there was domestic bliss for the most part. But that wasn't the case with the Classic TV series that starred Jackie Gleason as bus driver Ralph Kramden, Audrey Meadows as his long-suffering wife, Alice; Art Carney as dim-witted but lovable best friend and sidekick, Ed Norton; and the last living member of The Honeymooners Joyce Randolph as his wife, Trixie. The two couples lived in a Bensonhurst apartment in Brooklyn, New York, struggling to get by. And it was exactly that struggle, and wanting to break free of it, that propelled much of the comedy. Ralph was the get-rich-quick scheming, short-tempered, soft-hearted guy who was always striving for greatness, but

75 Years of Golden Globe Best Series Winners

75 Years of Golden Globe Best Series Winners
2018 marks the 75th anniversary of the Golden Globes, and a lot has changed since the original 1943 awards. Take television, for instance. The Hollywood Foreign Press Association didn't even recognize the smaller screen in the beginning. In fact, the first series to be awarded were My Three Sons and What's My Line? in 1962. The television categories continued to evolve after that. In 1963, the HFPA broke out the drama and comedy categories for Best Series. However, the organization went back to selecting a single winner from 1965 to 1969. All in the Family, The Golden Girls and Sex and the City are some of the most awarded series. All in the Family took home the prize four times—winning...

Menashe – Review

As the Summer season winds down, a new independent flick enters the box office arena concerning the challenges of single parenting. Oh, and this is from a male viewpoint, but it’s not a heart-tugging comedy that will make moviegoers recall The Courtship Of Eddie’S Father (the flick with Glenn Ford or the TV version with Bill Bixby), which helped inspire several sitcoms like “Bachelor Father” and “My Three Sons”. Yes, it’s about a widower, thought its main concern isn’t the search for a new mate (it does factor in a bit). The film is set in New York, but its language gives the story a decided foreign feel. Most of the dialogue (about 95%) is in Yiddish, as the world of Brooklyn’s ultra-orthodox Jewish community is the home of a man (well, almost a Mensch) named Menashe.

The story begins in the bustling early morning hours

Good Morning (ohayo)

It’s Yasujiro Ozu in light mode, except that his insights into the human social mechanism make this cheerful neighborhood comedy as meaningful as his dramas. Two boys go on a ‘talk strike’ because they want a television set, a choice that has an effect on everyone around them. And what can you say about a movie with running jokes about flatulence . . . and is still a world-class classic?

2017’s Jumanji adds Tim Matheson to its cast

According to Deadline, actor Tim Matheson is the latest addition to the cast of Sony’s Dwayne Johnson-led Jumanji reimagining/sequel. Matheson has signed on to play the role of Old Man Vreeke; no details were given on the character or how he relates to the film’s plot.

It appeared as if the Jumanji cast had already been rounded out after Annie and Boardwalk Empire actor Bobby Cannavale came on board in November, but clearly, that was not the case. Seeing as how filming on Jumanji began in September, one would assume that Matheson will be the last major cast addition since production should be finishing up soon.

Matheson has had a career that spans over five decades, first getting into the business as a teenager in the 60s and appearing on such shows as Leave It to Beaver, Jonny Quest and My Three Sons. The Emmy-nominated actor,
