Tony Danza Takes the Road Not Taken on Teach

Teach: Tony Danza

When Tony Danza stepped into the classroom for his new series Teach, his first victory wasn't his students' high marks on a test or getting everyone to turn in their homework on time. It was a rap ... on creation myths.

"Thought Thor was a gangster, and then one day, he woke up the sun to find a brand new day.

Now that Joey is DOA on its ...

Question: Now that Joey is DOA on its return, again we have the debate about the death of what we know as the traditional sitcom. My question is, was Joey that bad? No, it wasn't as topical as Sex and the City or as well written as Frasier, but Joey never set out to be either of those shows. It was a sitcom with some basic, familiar characters and uncomplicated story lines. Twenty years ago shows like Growing Pains and Who's the Boss? were top-10 hits, and I think Joey compares in format to these shows.

Question: Did Tony and Angela ever get married on Who's the Boss?

Answer: That's entirely up to you, Mar, since the show never really said either way. When last we saw ad exec Angela Bower (Phenom's Judith Light) and her former housekeeper, Tony Micelli (Taxi and Family Law's Tony Danza), they were giving their relationship another shot after an incredibly long flirtation and at least one failed attempt.

If you're an optimist and old-fashioned romantic, then sure — consider them married.

Of course Danza wasn't one to settle down easily in real life, either, especially during the time the hit ABC sitcom was on the air (1984 to 199 read more
