‘Parenthood’ will be back, cast intact


Akron Beacon Journal

Q. I recently saw a picture in People magazine that made it look as though there has been a cast change on Parenthood. Have Bonnie Bedelia (Camille) and Miles Heizer (Drew) been replaced?

No. An NBC rep said the cast is intact for the new season, which begins Thursday on NBC. (The drama is moving from Mondays to Thursdays.)

Q. Will The Wendy Williams Show return?

The daytime talk show began airing new episodes Monday. It’s seen locally at 10 a.m. on WSVN-Fox 7.

Q: I would dearly love to find episodes of Open House. It was on many years ago. It is not the one from 2004. It was about a real estate office.

The Open House that you remember aired on Fox in 1989-90 and was a spin-off of the Fox series Duet (1987-89). In it, Mary Page Keller played a real-estate saleswoman. In her first regular role on a TV series, Ellen DeGeneres played a “marginally competent, man-hungry receptionist,” according to The Complete Directory to Prime Time Network and Cable TV Shows.

I do not know of an authorized release of the series on video. I did see a couple of clips from the show’s credits on YouTube, but that’s about it.

Q. Can you tell me if Whitney will be back? Also, what happened to Happily Divorced? Those two shows really made me laugh.

Unfortunately, not enough other people felt the same way. Whitney, the NBC comedy starring Whitney Cummings, and Happily Divorced, a TV Land comedy starring Fran Drescher, have both been canceled.
