Your Top 10 Perfect Strangers Episodes Revealed; Will & Grace Goes Live Again; John Spencer Passes Away

You all have voted and now the top 10 episodes for Perfect Strangers are now in! Among the episodes that you loved were: "The Lottery" - in which they win the lottery but can't find the ticket; "Pipe Dreams" - in which Larry & Balki do the plumbing for the girl's bathroom and hell breaks; "Just Desserts" - in which the gang goes crazy in making the Myposian desert--bibi bobkas; "Piano Movers" - is the one where Larry & Balki try to move a huge piano in Lydia's apartment, which is a very tall building; and "Knock Knock, Who's There? - is where it all started and Larry & Balki first meet! To see the full list of "your top 10" click here. We thank all the fans who helped us out. Warner Home Video will take a look at the ten most requested episodes and they will choose six episodes from this list that will make it on DVD on this TV Favorites set, which will be out on June 27, 2006!
We will have the six episodes that they chose for DVD soon, so keep checking back with us! All fans should buy this set because this series is rarely seen these days. In fact, I have not seen the last two seasons on TV since the original airing on ABC! That was 1991-93!
Finally, I want to give special thanks to my friend Tim. You have been great to us on this selection process and the Alice selection last month. Thanks for everything!

Apparently NBC's live episode of Will & Grace's season premiere worked because NBC will have another live episode in January. The second live episode will air Thursday, January 12 at 8 p.m. ET/PT. Both the east and west coast will get it live. The cast and crew will do two live episodes that night, one for the east and one for the west. If you are a fan, try to get someone to tape the other live episode for--as this is part of TV history! Will & Grace has had average ratings this season only, and the live episode was the highest rated one this season, so thus this is why NBC is doing it.

SitcomsOnline.com mourns the tragic passing of NBC star John Spencer. Mr. Spencer starred in the drama The West Wing. Mr. Spencer got his start on the sitcom The Patty Duke Show. He starred on that sitcom in the 1964-65 season. But the actor never appeared on a sitcom again. He mainly played in dramatic series and movies. The Emmy award winning actor played the role of Chief of Staff Leo McGarry. He also starred previously on NBC's L.A. Law. He passed away this morning of a heart attack at the age of only 58, just four days shy of age 59.
