    Bad news for retro-TV fans: Hulu is getting ready to part ways with roughly a dozen classic and cult titles over the next two weeks, including Arrested Development, The Bob Newhart Show, Beverly Hills 90210, Hill Street Blues, and Ally McBeal. The Disney-owned platform began posting expiration notices on the shows earlier this week, but sometimes those get applied in error. (Indeed, Hulu briefly put one on The Mary Tyler Moore Show and St. Elsewhere, but those turned out to be false alarms.) But Buffering checked in with Hulu PR, which confirmed that indeed all of the aforementioned shows will...

    Peter Scolari, who famously starred in the sitcom "Bosom Buddies" alongside Tom Hanks, has died. He was 66. His passing was confirmed by his manager, Ellen Lubin Sanitsky, to Fox News on Friday. The cause of death was cancer after a two-year battle. "He was a wonderful, wonderful, extraordinary actor," she said. "It's heartbreaking."

  • Joe Soptic: Separated At Birth???

    Michelle Obama's Mirror ^ | 8-10-2012 | MOTUS
    Is it just me or is Joe Soptic a dead ringer for Bob Newhart? A real live, separated-at-birth twin of the famous stoic comedian? I leave it to the pundits to determine the veracity of Joe Soptic’s claim that Mitt Romney killed his (first) wife by heartlessly offering him a buy out from his job as a steelworker – that he refused – before closing the steel mill that Bain bought in 1993 and operated for 8 years before it succumbed to the harsh economic realities of high labor costs (not helped by the 10 week union strike in 1997)...

    Comic actor Tom Poston, who won an Emmy on "The Steve Allen Show" and was Emmy nommed for "Newhart," "Mork and Mindy" and "Coach," died April 30 in Los Angeles after a brief illness. He was 85. Poston was best known for playing George Utley on "Newhart" and his guest appearances on "The Bob Newhart Show." His Emmy win came in 1959 for his role playing the befuddled Everyman as part of the Allen's stock company along with Don Knotts and Louie Nye. He began his acting career in 1947 in Jose Ferrer's Broadway production of "Cyrano de Bergerac." Early...

    Preview and analysis for Weekend Talk Shows, 9-30 and 10-1-06 It's week four (or 297, depending on how you figure it) of the WOB (war on Bush) and all things "Republi-fascist," as the drive by media might style what they're doing.  We've had a week of spin like we haven't seen since... well, since Clinton was in office.  All the old hateful and hate filled faces were back on the screaming head shows pulling their electrically powered rapid fire mouths back out of storage and plugging them in for one more go around of lies, screaming lies and videotape.  And...

    Preview and Analysis of the Weekend Talk Shows for 9/23 & 9/24/06The campaign to trash President Bush and beatify President Clinton gets into high gear this week.  Perhaps now we know why the Clintonistas were so frantic to kill or discredit The Path To 9/11, because it had the possibility of preempting their re-re-re-re-launch of the "Clinton Legacy" (Take 843).  This is a contest between the Bush and Clinton world views.  Bush views the world in terms of western civilization representing humanity's progress up from barbarism.  Clinton views the world in terms of America's sins and how we must be...

    "One of the things you learn when you go on the nightclub floor is never show fear, because then you're dead meat," said Bob Newhart, recalling his almost overnight transformation from Chicago accountant to successful stand-up comedian. "So I've just pretended for the last 45 years I knew what I was doing." Speaking at a PBS press conference in Beverly Hills last week for Bob Newhart: Unbuttoned, which premieres on the network’s "American Masters series July 20, Newhart recalled his almost overnight transformation from shy Chicago accountant to stand-up sensation when he first tried out his 18 minutes of material...
