SNEAK PEEK: Roseanne Who? Looks Like ‘The Conners’ Are Doing Just Fine

Published

on

We can all agree that fall is the truly best time for television. It’s the time of year when all of our favorite shows kick off their new seasons and we can once again look forward to quiet nights in front of the television. Sometimes, however, your favorite show gets canceled because it’s eponymous star tweets out racism and then blames it on a popular sleeping pill.

Last year, the beloved sitcom Roseanne rebooted and shattered television ratings with a whopping 25 million viewers for it’s series premiere. Then, over the summer, Roseanne Barr released a tweet comparing a former Obama aide to a cast member from Planet Of The Apes. The tweet became viral by morning and ABC Network officials swiftly canceled the hit revival. After months of speculation it was announced that the show’s cancellation would warrant a spinoff that would not include Barr in any way. That show is entitled The Conners and will follow the rest of the Conner family as they deal with the death of their matriarch. Here’s the official series synopsis:

After a sudden turn of events, the Conners are forced to face the daily struggles of life in Lanford in a way they never have before. This iconic family — Dan, Jackie, Darlene, Becky and D.J. — grapples with parenthood, dating, an unexpected pregnancy, financial pressures, aging and in-laws in working-class America. Through it all, the fights, the coupon cutting, the hand-me-downs, the breakdowns – with love, humor and perseverance, the family prevails.

Fans and critics alike have been wondering if this spinoff will be able to live up to the success of the revival, Well from the newly released promo, it just might. All of the other Conners are back for this new series including fan favorites Laurie Metcalf, Sara Gilbert and John Goodman. Complete side note, Dr. Richard Webber aka James Pickens Jr. is reviving his role as Dan Conner’s good buddy! Check out the chief double dipping into that ABC money. Anyway, the promo is lighthearted and fun regardless of it’s obligation to handle Roseanne’s death, which means we can still expect a lot of laughs.

The Conners premiers on October 16th, in the meantime check out the promo below!

AWWW: A Rescue Team Of 9 Was Needed To Rescue 1 Adorably Chubby Rat

Published

on

Over in Bensheim, Germany a rotund rodent got herself into a jam when she tried to squeeze through a hole of a manhole cover only to get stuck…and honestly, I can relate. When I was 8 years old I tried to squeeze my thunder-thighs-in-training into a children’s swing and it took my dad and three other grown men to get me out. I am the German fat-rat!

Volunteer firefighters were called when a young girl noticed the fat rat was stuck and no time was wasted to help the poor critter. Eight firefighters and at least one animal rescuer appeared on the scene to safely extract the chubby critter. Animal rescuer Michael Sehr told BBC “She had a lot of winter flab and was stuck fast at her hip. There was no going forward or back.” When asked why anyone would even want to save something so many are repulsed by Sehr said “Even animals that are hated by many deserve respect.”

Alls well that ends well! Hopefully no authorites will be needed to help me shimmy out of these skinny jeans I thought looked cute this morning…in the meantime, check out the entire rescue below!

Elton John And Taron Egerton Performed A Fantastic Duet Of ‘Tiny Dancer’

Published

on

The dancer may be tiny but the talent on stage was massive! Taron Egerton and Elton John gave a fantastic performance of “Tiny Dancer” last night at the 27th Annual Elton John AIDS Foundation Academy Awards Viewing Party.

If you’ve been looking for a reason to toss on your bedazzled cape and brightly colored sunglasses then boy do I have good news for you. An “epic musical fantasy” about Elton John’s life, entitled Rocketman, is expected to hit theaters in May 2019. Taron Egerton, from Robin Hood fame, plays the musical legend and judging by his performance last night, we are all in for a treat. The audience of the charity event felt like a candle in the wind when Taron suggested an off-the-cuff performance of “Tiny Dancer.” There isn’t even a pun creative enough to embody what the audience must have felt when Elton John himself volunteered to accompany Taron on the piano!

In addition to a truly moving performance, the 27th Annual Elton John AIDS Foundation Academy Awards Viewing Party raised more than $6.3 million for an effort to end AIDS.

VIRAL: There Is No Room For Love When This Dog Protects His Barney

Published

on

I think this dog missed the whole “I love you, you love me” message Barney was trying to teach all those years ago…

In this viral video posted to Twitter, an adorable pup channels his inner Cujo anytime his owner gets close to the Barney the Dinosaur stuffed animal. While the frenzied attacks are comical in themselves, this video should definitely be played with the sound up. While we never see more than the dog owner’s hand, we hear his high pitched screams of terror every time the dog take a lunge.
