Here's the latest article from the Sitcoms site at BellaOnline.com.
Welcome to the Sitcoms newsletter. February 27th-March 5th
This week, check out my article on the survival of a sitcom once the star exits the show. In light of the Two and a half Men difficulties, I have taken a look back at shows that continued to thrive even after a lead character exited.
News this week: Charlie Sheen has been on a media rampage.
The highlight of the week: Raising Hope and Martha Plimpton’s gossip face. The vasectomy was also very funny.
Seek this out: PBS just aired a two hour special on Britcoms. Entitled “Behind the Britcom from script to screen” If you love British sitcoms then you will love this special. It takes a look at the creators and writers behind some of your favorites. This special has interviews with the writers, directors, and cast.
Next week: Bubble season, that time of year when fans get to celebrate or say goodbye to their favorite programs. What programs will make the cut for next year, and what shows are on the bubble, or cancelled?
Sorry about the late post.
Breaking News: Charlie Sheen is out FIRED! from Two and a Half Men.
I hope to hear from you sometime soon, either in the forum or in response to this email message. I thrive on your feedback!
Have fun passing this message along to family and friends, because we all love free knowledge!
