If thereís one thing most of us can agree on when it comes to love, itís that itís a complex, confusing and often strange thing that can lead us down paths we never expected. The nature of a TV series allows us to watch characters pass through the many stages of a relationship over time Ė from falling in love to the sometimes bitter, sometimes beautiful end. From the big mistakes to the power of fate, here are a few things weíve learned about love from the small screen.
Last week we shared the a teaser for the upcoming Comedy Central Roast of Roseanne, and at that time, aside from knowing that Jane Lynch would be serving as Roast Master for the event, we didn't know who would be taking the podium to poke fun at Roseanne. There's a pretty great assortment of talent joining the dais for the Roast, including a woman who knows a little something about playing the wife and mother of a lower-middle-class TV family.
It's become something of a tradition that the Roastee set to be featured in the next Comedy Central Roast helps promote the approaching special by roasting themselves in the advertisements. In the case of Roseanne, who is set to be the target of the next roasting on Comedy Central, the most obvious joke involves the rendition of a certain memorable and nationally beloved tune, so naturally that's what's featured in the new promo for her Roast.
There are some TV shows that have become known to make a big production out of Halloween and Roseanne is probably at the top of the list, or very close to it. The series did seven Halloween-themed episodes over the course of its nine season run, and TV Land is set to air all of them in a row, next week.
I sometimes forget that Academy Award winning actor-director George Clooney was once a television star. It seems so long ago that he was curing what ails as Dr. Doug Ross on NBC and Michael Crichton's uber-popular medical drama ER. Well before that break-out role, Clooney could be seen all over the small-screen, most notably on The Facts of Life or Roseanne, and he talks a little about all of them in this video.
