roseanne reboot

Roseanne is shaking up Hollywood. The Roseanne reboot premiered to massive ratings Tuesday night, drawing more viewers than any network sitcom has in four years. Not only that, the premiere snagged more viewers than its 1997 finale 21 years ago.

So what does that mean for the TV landscape? First of all, you can count on the revival phenomenon to keep going strong. But the more intriguing effect of Roseanne‘s gargantuan success is that we could see a new era in middle America sitcoms. Or maybe it’s a combination of both. You may finally find out which Friends character would have voted for Donald Trump.

Home Improvement Reboot

Later this month, we’ll see Roseanne return to ABC with a series revival that brings back the entire cast from the original sitcom. This opens the door for the network to possibly revisit some of their other beloved shows from the 1990s, and one of them might be Home Improvement.

Led and inspired by comedian Tim Allen, Home Improvement aired from 1991 to 1999. The series followed Tim “The Tool Man” Taylor, the host of a hardware and fix-it-all TV show and the patriarch of a family with three sons (Zachery Ty Brian, Jonathan Taylor Thomas and Taran Noah Smith) and an extremely patient wife (Patricia Richardson). Are they all ready to come back for a Home Improvement reboot? Tim Allen says the possibility “has been floated.” Find out more below. Read More »

The Lonely Island Oscars Song

As expected, the 90th Academy Awards went long last night, even with Jimmy Kimmel offering a sweet jetski to the Oscar winner who gave the shortest acceptance speech. But the ceremony was almost a little bit longer thanks to The Lonely Island, and it would have been worth the extra time.

The Lonely Island, the Saturday Night Live hip-hop trio of Andy Samberg, Akiva Shaffer, and Jorma Taccone, was asked to write a song for this year’s Oscars ceremony. However, the song that they came up with about the films that weren’t nominated for Oscars ended up being “financially and logistically impossible” to shoot for the ceremony.

Thankfully, we can imagine what it might have been like thanks to the storyboard video and demo they recorded. So check out this abandoned The Lonely Island Oscars song featuring Thor, Wonder Woman, The Snowman, Pennywise the Dancing Clown, and more. Read More »

Roseanne Reboot Trailer

Later this month, America’s favorite blue collar family from the ’90s is returning for a new round of episodes. The Connors were a groundbreaking sitcom family going through the trials and tribulations of middle class life in ABC’s series Roseanne. The series became famous for tackling issues that other sitcoms never touched, and they’re about to do it all over again.

A revival of Roseanne is coming to ABC at the end of March, and all of the original cast members are returning for more family shenanigans. Roseanne Barr (Roseanne), John Goodman (Dan), Laurie Metcalf (Jackie), Sara Gilbert (Darlene), Michael Fishman (DJ) and Lecy Goranson (Becky) are all reprising their roles from the original series, and the first Roseanne reboot trailer with new footage from the show debuted during the Oscars last night. Do The Connors still have it? Read More »

Star Wars Sound Design Documetnary

The home video release of Star Wars: The Last Jedi will be chock full of special features that dive into the making of the movie. Not only is director Rian Johnson providing commentary, but there will be a feature length documentary going behind the scenes of the film’s production. But since that won’t be available until next month, a new 26-minute documentary short about the sound design and sound mixing done for the film will have to hold us over.

ABC News was given extensive access to Skywalker Sound, and they’ve put together a fascinating and revealing documentary called The Force of Sound that dives into the creation of the sound effects for a movie that is literally out of this world in a galaxy far, far away. Want to know how the sounds of the Porgs were created? What do foley artists use to make the sound of BB-8 rolling on the ground? This is the documentary for you. Read More »
