'Full House' Cast Not Happy With Unauthorized Lifetime Movie
It was announced back in April that Lifetime would be producing The Unauthorized Full House Story, giving fans a never before seen glimpse of what went on behind-the-scenes of the show.

Full House had already been in the news because of the upcoming Netflix reboot of the program called Fuller House. Now, it's looking like some of the original cast members are none too pleased with Lifetime.

'Full House' Revival In The Works
John Stamos is working to bring "Full House" back to the small screen. The actor has reportedly gotten most of the original cast to return to the popular family sitcom, which aired from 1987 until 1995.

The Cast Of Full House - Where Are They Now?
The show that coined the catchphrases, "How rude!" and "You got it dude!" is approaching close to 30 years since its first airdate in 1987 and although the hairstyles and clothing are way past their prime, "Full House" continues to be a staple of family television. The show is still playing in reruns, gaining an entirely new legion of fans who enjoy the day to day mishaps of the Tanner clan and their extended family. Which only proves that good television is timeless and if a show that is stuck in the 80's is popular in 2014, today's television is dropping the ball big time! Ever wonder whe...

Danny Tanner, Uncle Jesse and Joey Gladstone all came to Jimmy Fallon's aid when he had trouble sleeping on the Late Night.

Bob Saget, John Stamos, and Dave Coulier dropped by to reprise their roles from the hit 90s show Full House for the skit. Amusingly Bob Saget looks exactly the same while Stamos had to put on a mullet extension and Coulier put on a mop wig (nice acid-wash jeans, too).

After Jimmy Fallon says he can't sleep because he's scared about leaving Late Night to host the Tonight Show, the three guys soothe Fallon and sing him to sleep with their famous "Teddy Bear" song.

Victoria told him that this thing the three of them were doing isn’t going to work. Before he could move forward, Ted had to go back to the beginning one more time.

At the end of last week’s episode he professed his love for Robin once again. “No pressure,” Ted says, “Just let me know what you think.” Before anything can really be hashed out, Robin is whisked away on a busine...

Cougar Town premiered on ABC last week, shining the spotlight on a subject that has fascinated young men since the beginning of time. Courtney Cox is a perfect choice to head the cast, but unfortunately that seems to be where the good decisions end. The only other cougar on this show is Christa Miller (the sort-of attractive female friend from The Drew Carey Show), and she's not so much a cougar as she is someone who inspires the phrase "She must have been hot back in her prime." The female cast is rounded out by Busy Philipps, who is certainly attractive, but only 30 and still far removed ...

Ben Stiller
A cameo used to refer to a famous person who made an appearance in a film as him or herself. Now actors play small parts as a character in a film for comic relief. Most cameos are non-credited due to the shortness of the screen time or because they are so famous they don't need a big credit. Some are publicity stunts. Others pay tribute to that actor's work in a similar role, but they are all for the most part hilarious. Following are 10 of film's funniest cameos in no particular order:

What's The Best Show On TV Right Now? Starpulse Writers Weigh In

4/21/2008 8:33am EDT
Best TV Show?
What makes a TV show great? Is it the number of viewers or awards it has received? Not necessarily. In its last season, less than 3 million people tuned in to an episode of "Buffy the Vampire Slayer," but it is unarguably one of the best sci-fi/fantasy shows of all time. In seven seasons, the show won just one Emmy - in 1998 for outstanding makeup. Guess what other fan favorite won just one Emmy (also for outstanding makeup)? Gilmore Girls.

Despite both series' original and witty screenwriting, they never received the props they deserved. Sarah Michelle Gellar and Lauren Graham bo...

10 Worst TV Shows Of The Last 10 Years

There have been some truly phenomenal television shows produced over the last 10 years. Works of art that will continue to be appreciated and discussed for years to come. But what's the fun in talking about that?

For each great show created since 1998, there have been at least five or six terrible ones. Often these truly odious programs have a mercifully short lifespan. Occasionally, one will unexpectedly survive and thrive, shining proudly on screen and mocking the infinitely more creative, entertaining and intelligent programs that it has outlasted.

Full House (1987-1995)
