Best TV Moms: Dono & Patty’s Top 10 Choices

In: Donovan, Patrick, TV Shows

In honor of Mother’s Day, I decided to rotate this post originally published a few years ago. Donovan and myself ranked our favorite all-time television moms. Let’s face it: at one point growing up, we’ve watched a few sitcoms and thought it’d be cool to have one of those TV moms as our own, especially when we were fighting with our real ones ;)

Patrick

10. Sandy Hogan (Sandy Duncan) The Hogan Family (1986-1991)

Played by Sandy Duncan, she was the aunt that came in to effectively become the surrogate mom of the family after their mother, Valerie Harper, was killed off in the second season. She had a lot to deal with playing the role of the “mother” and it was a very interesting concept for that time, since it was not the conventional perfect family. Oh, do you remember that Jason Bateman was in this show? Here’s a link to the show’s intro to refresh your memory.

Donovan

10. Elyse Keaton (Meredith Baxter) Family Ties (1982-1989)

There are three different reasons why Elyse Keaton made the list.

  • 1. She was an architect which I thought was the coolest job growing up.
  • 2. The theme song “Without Us” was brilliant.
  • 3. I totally wanted to be related to Alex P. Keaton (Michael J. Fox).

Comedy Central Finds Stephen Colbert Replacement

In: Donovan, TV Shows

You really can’t have The Colbert Report without Stephen Colbert can you? Since he’s jumping ship to host The Late Show over at CBS, Comedy Central network execs had to create a new show. Cue Jon Stewart. The network is once again teaming up with Stewart’s Busboy Productions for the replacement show.

The Minority Report with Larry Wilmore will premiere in January 2015. It will be a comedic look at news, current events and pop culture from unique perspectives not typically on display in late night television. The series will feature a diverse panel of voices currently underrepresented in comedy and television. Props to Comedy Central for picking an African-American host. It’s a nice change of pace from the traditionally white males dominating late night television.

“We are thrilled to be expanding our relationship with Jon Stewart and Busboy Productions, and are looking forward to the world getting to know Larry Wilmore even better. He’s a spectacular talent in front of and behind the camera,” said Michele Ganeless, President, Comedy Central. “‘The Minority Report with Larry Wilmore’ follows in the Comedy Central tradition – bringing new perspectives to the day’s events and breaking ground in the world of late night television.”

nbc-cancels-community

Ever since Community premiered it has been an on-the-bubble show. Today, the bubble finally popped. NBC canceled the low-rated sitcom after five season. Growing Up Fisher also received the bad news. The midseason show got the heave-ho as well.

Revolution which started out strong last year, saw its viewership decline majorly without its cushy Voice lead-in. After two seasons, the peacock network pulled the plug on the apocalyptic drama series. While I enjoyed the first season, I stopped watching after two episodes of its sophomore run.

This season hasn’t been kind to J.J. Abrams. In addition to losing Revolution, NBC canceled his two other produced shows on the network. Both Crisis and Believe also received the ax. His offering on FOX, Almost Human, was also nixed weeks ago. Only Person of Interest on CBS remains (for now).

ABC Renews Ten Shows For 2014-2015 Season

ABC finally got in the renewal game Thursday night by announcing season orders to ten series. Not surprisingly, the alphabet network gave a fourth season order to Scandal. The political drama was one of only a few shows to experience year-to-year growth this season. Let’s just hope Shonda Rhimes can keep giving Gladiators the OMG twists they’re accustomed to.

Resurrection receiving a second season also wasn’t a surprise. The midseason drama made a huge splash with its premiere which garnered 13.3 million viewers and a 3.6 rating in the coveted 18-49 demo. Find out what other shows received good news below.

christopher-meloni-butt

I should probably write that in the past tense. FOX pulled the plug on Surviving Jack this week. Fingers crossed that Christopher Meloni bounces back quick and lands another gig soon. That juicy butt needs to grace primetime again. Perhaps if his FOX sitcom utilized his assets better, the comedy might’ve lasted longer. Just look at how many seasons Oz ran for ;)

While there’s no denying Meloni has a nice rear end, is it the best on primetime? The former Law and Order: SVU star was teased by Conan O’Brien that it is was. Check out the playful interview below.

the-cw-renewals-cancellations

In February, The CW gave early renewals for their best-performing shows. Arrow, Supernatural, The Vampire Diaries, The Originals and Reign all received another season. With upfronts just around the corner, the network is cleaning house. Find out which shows were canceled and were saved from the chopping block below.

But first, let’s briefly cover the four new shows the CW picked up. iZombie, Jane The Virgin, The Messengers and The Flash all received series orders. The latter isn’t surprising given all the hype and plot tie-ins to Arrow. Another potential spinoff, however, was nixed. Bloodlines which aired a backdoor pilot on a recent episode of Supernatural wasn’t picked up. More info about these shows will be released when The CW makes its formal presentation next week at the upfronts.

Without further ado, find out the statuses of your favorite CW shows below.

flip-it-forward-hgtv

Flip It Forward starring twin brothers David and Jason Benham was scheduled to premiere in October on HGTV. The show would’ve followed families creating their dream homes from fixer-uppers.

Amid anti-gay comments made David back in 2012 in North Carolina, the network has decided not to move forward on a pilot. The network made the announcement on their Facebook. Not surprisingly, many are applauding their decision.

“HGTV has decided not to move forward with the Benham Brothers’ series.” – HGTV

The Benham twins are sons of controversial evangelical minister Flip Benham. Their father has a history of preaching against homosexuality, abortion, and divorce. Here’s what David said at a rally for a constitutional amendment that would define marriage only between a man and a woman:

“We have no-fault divorce; we have pornography and perversion; we have homosexuality and its agenda that is attacking the nation; we have adultery … while the church sits silent and just builds big churches.” – David Benham

With upfronts just around the corner, the broadcast networks are using this week to do a little Spring cleaning before the unveiling of their Fall schedules.

Over at FOX it wasn’t a good day if you were a comedy. The network officially gave walking papers to four sitcoms. Rake which marked Greg Kinnear’s first regular TV role was among the bunch. Find out the other three shows below.
