Question: After reading every inch of the Fall Preview issue, I had a question for you. What I have found missing now is kids. I have kept every Fall Preview issue for about 20 years, and it is fun to pull them out and look back at the photos and see how they have changed over the years. There used to be at least five shows a year with kids, now I can't seem to find any. My question for you is: Where have all the kids gone?
Answer: First off, bless you for reading the magazine, something every self-respecting tvguide.com visitor should be doing regularly. But anyway -- for the most part, kids have gone the way of the family comedy and family drama, two near-dead genres. I’m assuming by “kids” you mean “children,” in which case you’re absolutely right: They’re almost invisible.

Question: I've been watching a lot of reruns of Roseanne on Nick at Nite lately and I wonder if there can ever be another show to match it. It was brilliant, especially in its early years. I would love to watch another family comedy on the same level as Roseanne.
Answer: So would we all. Those first seasons of Roseanne were so raw, so honest, so true to the star's vision, and, of course, so hilarious. One of the saddest observations I can make about today's TV comedy scene is to look at ABC and to realize that the network that once showcased Roseanne, Brett Butler and Tim Allen is now the network of Jim Belushi, Freddie Prinze Jr., George Lopez and Hope & Faith. It's enough to make you cry. (But then, ABC's Sons & Daughters, premiering Tuesday, may give you hope. Just pray someone actually watches. ...
