If Will & Grace didn’t kick in the TV revival door, Roseanne certainly blew it off the hinges. There’s still a few major TV revivals to ponder, but NBC brass now say Seinfeld or Friends will never happen.
This coming weekend will see Sam Rockwell taking the SNL stage for the first time, but January 2018 has yet more celebs in store. Season 43 will continue the year with fellow first-timer Jessica Chastain, along with SNL vet Will Ferrell.
NBC didn’t waste time declaring its revived Will & Grace would return for a second season, raising the question of other must-see-TV series next in line. According to NBC brass, they’re next hoping for more 30 Rock and The Office, or perhaps even The West Wing.
If you thought the cord-cutters’ market was aggressive before, just wait until you get a load of YouTube TV. The online video staple announced the full scope of its live TV bundle, complete with unlimited cloud DVR and a moderate monthly subscription fee.
As the year draws to a close, so does a deal between NBC Universal and Charter, which could potentially block customers of the cable provider from seeing the Sunday Night Football matchup between the Green Bay Packers and Detroit Lions.
