Must Be TV’s Moment, Again

The double positive that’s bred a negative that may evolve into a positive sign of a clearer picture to come to the liking of a certain show’s fans…?

’90s sitcom hit Will & Grace is back on NBC and it’s already been renewed for a second season. That’s the first positive. The next positive is that this second round of success for the original cast, writers, directors and crew members of Will & Grace is forcing its fellow “Must See TV” shows of yester-decade to think about a comeback, however brief.

Enter Seinfeld’s Jason Alexander from a very recent interview.

Yes, we (and the cast and writers) know all the complaints about the infamous Seinfeld series finale. Cognizant of this reality, Larry David wrote up a clever non-reunion reunion of Seinfeld on his second hit show Curb Your Enthusiasm on HBO several years ago. It was fantastic, which begs the question as to why the famous four-some (well, five-some) would risk their successful redo for the unknown on NBC? There’s no serious reason to do a reboot. However, Larry David’s comedic stock is at an all-time high right now…

A return to network primetime for Seinfeld, in whatever capacity, wouldn’t be nothing.

Prediction: If the seemingly impossible happens and Seinfeld returns to NBC, ladies and gentlemen, expect the Soaring Nineties to make a comeback like it’s never been imagined before.

Except by NBC. Because, you know, that pesky thing called “ratings.”

Just Back! in Time to Reopen That Bottle

A return to the past in the future is almost here…

Will & Grace (Part II?) looks like it has, somehow, replicated their lightning-in-a-bottle magic from their original run from 1998-2006. Perhaps this magic can be traced to the fact that all the original cast, crew, writers, producers and director(s) are rumored to have returned for a second-go in 2017.

And beyond.

A second season has already been ordered by NBC.

From all the promos and teasers, that preemptive decision seems like a wise move by the former “Must-See” TV network. Let’s not forget that Will & Grace (Part I?) was one of the sitcoms that made up “Must-See” television on NBC. And NBC, with a two-season revival planned before the pilot of Will & Grace (Part II?) even airs, is hoping their network’s bottle from its sitcom golden age will catch a spark to begin its own revival.

On a completely unrelated note that’s likely floating around the heads of every NBC exec these days:

Just how impossible is would a Friends reunion be?

Happy Monday

It’s Monday. It’s time to wake up from the weekend (literally and metaphorically).

It’s time for TCB.

TCB: That Creative Brainstorm. There’s no better way to start the workweek.

And that’s how you take care of business.

Have a Better Week Than Last Week. 

WHEATies: The Breakfast of Champions…Eventually

When will our grand “moment” in life happen? This is one of the biggest questions people want to know, along with finding our one true love. And for most people, both of these variables in life of paramount importance have no GPS option or Uber driver with an ETA. Nope, we’re the driver with no map on strange roads with no cell service in the making-it-up-as-we-go-along-in-the-dark approach.

Comforting? Not exactly. However, according to comedian Sebastian Maniscalco, patience is a virtue.

Plus, posing for a hilarious modeling picture will lead to your dream coming true…in 19 some odd years.

Congrats to Sebastian Maniscalco who finally made it to the big time in LA.

P.S. Find yourself some wheat this weekend and have your life changed!
