Nostalgia is all the rage these days, so it comes as no surprise that Bill Cosby is hoping to return to prime time.
The comedian told Yahoo TV that he's re-teamed with one of The Cosby Show producers Tom Werner to develop a family comedy that "would [satisfy] the people who have come to me in public places and said, 'Can't you put something on that I can watch?'"
Actress Raven-Symone appears to have come out on Twitter.
"I can finally get married! Yay government! So proud of you," she wrote on Friday, presumably referring to the Supreme Court's decision to overturn The Defense of Marriage Act, allowing same-sex couples to be recognized by the federal government.
Gary David Goldberg, the creator of the classic sitcom Family Ties, has died, according to Variety. He was 68.
Goldberg died in Montecito, Calif. after a battle with brain cancer.
Born in Brooklyn, Goldberg began his television writing career in the '70s working on qsuch shows as The Bob Newhart Show, The Last Resort and Lou Grant, the latter of which earned him his first Emmy.
Bill Cosby says he wanted The Cosby Show to represent a parenting philosophy that would "take the house back" from kids.
"I based the series on two important things: No. 1 ... I hated those series where the children were brighter than the parents, and those parents had to play dumb," Cosby recently told ABC News. "No. 2 was that I wanted to 'take the house back.'"
Family ties bind us. We invite TV dynasties into the middle of our full houses (upstairs, downstairs) for happy days and good times. Watching married-with-children characters one day at a time becomes an all-in-the-family affair for the wonder years and brings about home improvement. That's why modern families matter and can take us to seventh heaven.
