Bewitched's Alice Ghostley Dead at 81

Alice Ghostley, who is best known to television audiences for her roles on Bewitched and Designing Women, died on Friday after a long battle with colon cancer. She was 81. In the 1960s, the AP notes, Ghostley received a Tony nod for the comedy The Beauty Part and eventually won the award for The Sign in Sidney Brustein's Window. From 1969 to '72, she played good witch/ditzy housekeeper Esmeralda on Bewitched. From '87 to '93 she was Designing Women's Bernice, a role for which she netted an Emmy nom. read more

DVD Pick of the Week: July 10, 1007

Extras - The Complete Second Season box art courtesy HBO Home Video

July 10th is a day many of you have been waiting for, not because there's a set you're dying to buy, but because it's a slow release day. That's right, July 10th is the slowest day you'll find for a very, very long time.Beauty and the Beast, one of the top shows on, has its second season released, and this time there are extras! Linda Hamilton and Ron Perlman provide video introductions on select episodes. It doesn't sound like much, but at least it's something.We also see the third season release of Hustle, a BBC series about a group of con men (and woman). It's a great series, though the DVDs aren't as good as BBC's MI-5 (both shows are produced by Kudos). It's still one of my favorites, though the short seasons drive me crazy, but only because I like it so much.My "pick of the week" award goes to another British series, Extras from HBO Home Video. Ricky Gervais isn't quite as brilliant as he was in The Office, but the show is delightfully funny, and the DVD set c... read more

When I was a kid, my family ...

Perry Como, The Perry Como Show

Question: When I was a kid, my family used to always watch Perry Como Christmas specials. We loved them every year. But one thing I was never able to figure out: Who was he? Did he have his own show or something?

Answer: Not only did he have his own show, Kenny, he had several (both radio and TV), not to mention a long, successful music career. Matter of fact, Como's life in the biz was remarkable for precisely the reason you give: Like the Energizer bunny, he kept going, and going, and going — well into the rock-and-roll era, when many other crooners like him had long faded into obscurity.

Como started out, interestingly enough, as a barber when he was still in high school, but was already singing at weddings even then. In 1933 he began singing in bands and built enough of a following (and enough hit records) that NBC hired him to cohost The Chesterfield Supper Club radio show, which moved to TV in 1 read more

When Adam 12 aired from 1968 ...

Question: When Adam 12 aired from 1968 to 1975, which shows was it competing with?Answer: You want the full rundown for the NBC series, huh? Fair enough — I must use my powers for good, after all. OK, here goes: fall 1968 — The Dating Game (ABC) and The Jackie Gleason Show (CBS); fall 1969-70 — The Lawrence Welk Show (ABC) and My Three Sons (CBS); fall 1971 — Bewitched (ABC) and The Carol Burnett Show (CBS); fall 1972 — The Paul Lynde Show (ABC) and The Carol Burnett Show (CBS); fall 1973 — Bob & Carol & Ted & Alice (ABC) and The Sonny & Cher Comedy Hour (CBS); fall 1974 — read more


Not to sound glib, but Nicole Kidman is nuts about psychiatry. Unlike her crazy-talkin' ex, the Oscar winner says she's a big proponent of shrinkdom. "I have a father who is a psychologist," she told AP Radio. "I think people choose things that they need that are going to help them. And obviously, I've seen my father do some magnificent work." Is there no way we can get Tommy a referral? If not, how about the psychopath who greenlit Bewitched? read more

Remember when there was a new...

Remember when there was a new Darren on Bewitched? How about when Chris on The Partridge Family changed? Then there was a new Steven on Dynasty and, of course, a new Becky on Roseanne (and then back to the old). Now we have a new Alex on ER. Alex, just to remind you, is Samantha's diabetic son, and he's now being played by Dominic Janes. Maybe Oliver Davis had to do full-time work on Rodney? Anyway, I noticed it right away, even though at first they were using clever camera work so he was only seen from far away. I laughed when the detective told Sam (after Alex's photo was distributed): "Nobody recognized your son." Of course they didn't; he's being played by someone else. Glad for Sam's sake that she finally found him and that he's OK. But her journey getting to the missing Alex included a scene that brought back nasty memories for me. I must admit that I once fell asleep at the wheel — not a pretty time in my history. read more


Original Dukes of Hazzard cast member Ben Jones — he played wisecracking mechanic "Crazy Cooter" — is urging fans of the classic TV series to steer clear of the forthcoming movie version. "Basically, they trashed our show," he wrote on his personal website. Jones claims the film is rife with sexual innuendo and profanity — although he hasn't actually seen it for himself. "From all I have heard, [it's] a sleazy insult to all of us who have cared about The Dukes of Hazzard for so long." You think that's bad, you should see what they did to Bewitched. read more

Premise: An enchanting sitcom about beautiful, nose-twitching witch Samantha Stevens, who moves to the suburbs to be with her strait-laced mortal husband, Darrin. The series became a critical and popular success after premiering on ABC in 1964, went on to win a number of Emmys and became one of the longest-running sitcoms in ABC history. The premise was retooled for the 1977-78 spin-off `Tabitha,' which centered on the Stevens' daughter and starred Lisa Hartman and Robert Urich.
