Can you explain the dearth of ...

Question: Can you explain the dearth of female-centric shows these days? My favorite shows of all time, from Rhoda to Kate & Allie to Golden Girls, were often centered around brilliant actresses and great writing. Their stories appealed to everybody and helped women. I just do not see any of this type of show anymore. Can you explain why this is happening, and if you expect it to ever change? Answer: I don't really understand this question, except to note that these longtime faves all appear to be comedies, and it's a fact that TV comedy is in a slump, especially comedies built around strong women — although hybrid comedy-dramas like Gilmore Girls and Desperate Housewives (and UPN's Monday block of urban comedies, for that matter) offer plenty of juicy roles for great actresses. But the boom of drama has also been good to women. Check out the casts of Desperate Housewives, Grey's Anatomy, Lost, Commander in Chief, and the leads of such crime dramas as Cold Case and Close to Home, not to ... read more

Who played Buffy on Family ...

We are family: the cast of Family Affair

Question: Who played Buffy on Family Affair?


Answer: Anissa Jones played Buffy alongside Johnnie Whitaker (Sigmund and the Sea Monsters) on the series, which ran on CBS for five years beginning in September 1966. The show focused on swinging bachelor Bill Davis (Hardcastle & McCormick's Brian Keith) and his valet, Mr. French (Sebastian Cabot), two men whose lives took a change for the domestic when Buffy, her twin brother, Jody (Whitaker), and their older sister, Cissy (Kathy Garver), the children of Bill's late brother, moved in. But the main draw for the audience tuning in was the cute little twins — and the adults in the cast were well aware of it.

"Now those kids, bless 'em, they don't use any tricks," Sabby Cabot told TV Guide in 1967. "But t read more

Premise: Mary Richards' neurotic pal returns to Manhattan and her kvetchy family in this spin-off from `The Mary Tyler Moore Show.' The previously dateless Rhoda finally found love and wed (which proved to be a fatal mistake for the series), but Emmy-winner Valerie Harper's portrayal of her heartbreak when her marriage later shattered gave the show a touching emotional core, as did the wonderful Julie Kavner as Rhoda's insecure sister Brenda.
