Mother's Day Weekend Marathons; Retroality's May Interviews; Sitcom Stars on Talk Shows (Week of May 10, 2010)

In honor of all the great TV Moms -- Carol Brady (Brady Bunch), June Cleaver (Leave it to Beaver), Shirley Partridge (Partridge Family), Marion Cunningham (Happy Days), Nora Walker (Brothers and Sisters), Lorelai Gilmore (Gilmore Girls), Clair Huxtable (The Cosby Show), Morticia Adams (The Addams Family), Roseanne Conner (Roseanne), Claire Dunphy & Gloria Delgado Pritchett (Modern Family), Debra Barone (Everybody Loves Raymond), and Marge Simpson (The Simpsons) -- just kick back, relax and celebrate Mother's Day with some mother-themed television! But it's too bad none of these will get marathon airings, except for Raymond.
Check out this list of 95 TV Episodes, Movies, Specials & Marathons that air during Mother's Day Weekend from our friens at TV Tango!
Among the special Mother's Day themed episodes that are airing are marathons of Everybody Loves Raymond on TV Land on Saturday, The Golden Girls on WE tv on Sunday, and many more. And of course don't miss Betty White on the Mother's Day themed episode of SNL on Saturday night!

Our buddy Chris Mann has posted his May 2010 cover story at his groovy Retroality website! V/The Bionic Woman/The Incredible Hulk creator/writer/producer/director Kenneth Johnson is interviewed. That is a very cool get for Chris! He has also just posted a link to his new WellBella cover story with Jane Seymour (Dr. Quinn Medicine Woman) and he'll be interviewing Just Shoot Me!/Hot in Cleveland's Wendie Malick next week for WellBella's July cover feature. So we have that to look forward to in the coming weeks! Recently Chris did an L.A. Times story about TV "re-imaginings," as we see more and more remakes. Check out this interesting story! Another sitcom-related bit: he'll have a Mario Lopez (Saved by the Bell) cover story in the July issue of Muscle & Body magazine. Wow Chris is sure busy!
Check out Retroality.TV for all of this!

It's Friday, so it is time for "Sitcom Stars on Talk Shows" for the coming week. This is where we list what sitcom stars are appearing on talk shows for the coming week, the stars are both current and past sitcom stars (but we won't cover movie stars like Tom Hanks or John Travolta, since they won't be talking about their past sitcoms likely), so this is for all sitcom fans of all eras!
