  • The casts of Boy Meets World and Girl Meets World obviously collide somewhat, but a full-fledged reunion is on the way to the newer series next season. (Entertainment Weekly)
  • Sesame Street has let go of three cast members who've been part of the series for four decades, including one who has been on the series since the first episode, and many people are not happy. (New Yorker)

TUESDAY (AUGUST 2) HOME MEDIA RELEASES

Who to Follow: Lucie Arnaz (Twitter), "actress, singer, dancer, songwriter, producer, writer, director, teacher, sometime trapeze artist, wife and mother."
Claim to Fame: August is coming up, and it is a month where we usually reflect on the life and career of Lucille Ball, since her birthday is coming up on August 6 (one week from today). Lucille Ball died, of course, almost three decades ago, but her two children, Desi Arnaz, Jr. and Lucie Arnaz, have continued to make sure that the legacy of their mother lives on for decades to come. Lucie Arnaz made her television debut on a few episodes of The Lucy Show before being cast as Kim, Lucy Carter's daughter, in the series Here's Lucy. Her television career was mostly short-lived, but as it turns out, a different direction was much more appropriate for her and has been a place where she has been able to thrive: musical theatre, including Broadway productions. She is still sort of trying to get the hang of Twitter and (as she often admits herself) has a tendency to show up and disappear, but we hope to hear more from her in the future.
Pick of the Tweets: "Can I go to Tweet school? Still so confused!" (April 14, 2012)
