TV Is Finding Out About West Michigan!

Matt Hendricks and I were talking about this the a couple of weeks ago. TV shows and where they take place. Some are easy. Friends was in New York. Cheers in Boston. Home Improvement in Detroit. We were wondering why West Michigan (and Grand Rapids in particular) was not featured on a TV show. Of course the American Pie movies were based in East Grand Rapids, but it wasn't called that. That might be changing soon, at least the West Michigan part.

Good Times, The Movie!

"Not Gettin Hassled, Not Gettin Hustled"
-From the theme to the TV show "Good Times"

That's the latest TV show to get the big screen treatment. Or at least thats the very crappily-kept rumor around Hollywood these days. Good Times, the social relivant hit sitcom from the mid-70's, spent 5 season on CBS' nighttime lineup. The spinoff from "Maude" was one in a stable of hits created by Norman Lear and Bud Yorkin. "All in the Family" and "The Jeffersons" made Lear a very wealthy man.

‘Dexter’s Michael C. Hall to Quit TV After Series Finale?

Despite a certain likelihood and earlier comments from producers, Showtime has yet to provide a concrete answer regarding 'Dexter's upcoming eighth season, and whether or not it will prove the last for the series. The series' ratings have remained strong, delivering its highest numbers to date with season 7, but additional years will likely depend on actor and creative commitment.
