chemistry lessons

WHEN CAROL BURNETT ACCEPTED HER eponymous inaugural comedy award at the 2019 Golden Globes, she mentioned the “brilliance” of her regular co-stars on The Carol Burnett Show: Harvey Korman, Vicki Lawrence, Lyle Waggoner, and Tim Conway. “I’m so grateful for the chemistry that we had with each other,” she said. “And there was great chemistry behind the camera, too, with our crew, our producer, our director, our choreographer, our writers, the cue-card guys—we all became one happy family for 11 joy-filled years.” Burnett’s comment about chemistry is true for all co-stars. If the alchemy is there, everything works. Sometimes it’s immediately clear who will click. Sometimes it takes a bit longer for the magic to happen. But when it does? That’s when the fun—and a show’s success—really begins. This month’s cover stars…

MICHAEL MICHELE’S DAD CAN QUOTE ALMOST EVERY EPISODE of Dynasty. (“The champagne is burned!”) So you’d think that Michele would be born to play Dominique Deveraux on The CW’s hit reboot. “I’ll be completely honest with you—I was afraid to do it,” Michele confesses. “One hundred percent. I’m the cops, doctor, and lawyer chick!” The seasoned actress starred in Homicide: Life on the Street and ER, but Dynasty’s a different beast. “It’s not a straight drama; it’s not a straight comedy. But I’m having so much fun, I may never put on a stethoscope again!” Diahann Carroll famously said she wanted to be “the first Black bitch on television,” and she accomplished that (and more) by originating Dominique Deveraux on Dynasty. So what was it like to step into Diahann and…

lifestyles of the rich & infamous

After somehow surviving her bachelorette party, Fallon (Elizabeth Gillies) just wants to marry Liam (Adam Huber) and have a nice, calm life. Those aren’t two words usually associated with Carringtons—and the happy couple face their biggest challenges yet. Blake (Grant Show) and Cristal’s (Daniella Alonso) relationship hit some turbulence last season as they each strayed. This season they’ll work even harder to make their marriage last. Unfortunately, the universe has other plans—as do multiple enemies. Adam (Sam Underwood) strives to emerge from his massive family shadow. As he ruthlessly climbs the ladder of success, things with girlfriend Kirby (Maddison Brown) get messy and put her at odds with her father, Anders (Alan Dale). An unlikely alliance between Alexis (Elaine Hendrix, pictured) and her sister-in-law turned mother-in-law, Dominique (Michael Michele), forms as they set…

living on the edge

IT WAS THE SHOT HEARD ’ROUND the world. CBS primetime soap Dallas capped its third season on March 21, 1980, with a bang: Oily oil baron J.R. Ewing, once described by The New York Times as “the nastiest man on television,” was shot twice before collapsing to the ground. Everyone was a suspect! And everyone was obsessed—including England’s Queen Mother herself—over “Who shot J.R.?” After an excruciating eight-month wait, a whopping 83 million viewers tuned in to see who pulled the trigger. (Spoiler alert: It was J.R.’s former mistress and sister-in-law, Kristin Shepard.) Over the next four decades, TV shows have upped the ante with their own cliffhangers, keeping viewers on the hook over a summer—sometimes over a year! 13 SERIAL KILLERS ESCAPE! “The Storm” (Aired May 4, 2016) After thwarting a prison break…

loud & proud

1971 ALL IN THE FAMILY In Season 1’s aptly titled episode “Judging Books by Their Covers,” Archie Bunker’s strapping ol’ pal Steve, a former NFL linebacker, comes out of the closet—shattering the blue-collar bigot’s preconceptions about what makes a man a man. 1973 THE MARY TYLER MOORE SHOW Phyllis (Cloris Leachman) sets Mary (Mary Tyler Moore) up with her bachelor bro. But Ben ends up gravitating more toward Phyllis’ frenemy Rhoda (Valerie Harper)—much to his snooty sister’s chagrin. However, Rhoda is just not into him like that because, well, turns out Ben’s gay … which comes as a huge relief to Phyllis. 1987 DESIGNING WOMEN A gay man (pre-Scandal Tony Goldwyn) asks the women of Sugarbaker & Associates to design a funeral—his own, as he’s dying of AIDS. Linda Bloodworth-Thomason came up with the episode while caring for…

1 “You’re gonna make it after all!” (Cue the hat toss!) 2 “Well, we’re movin’ on up!” 3 “Songs that made the hit parade/Guys like us we had it made/Those were the days.” 4 “Buh-buh-buh-bah-bahm-bahm!” This swinging surf track covered by The Ventures peaked at No. 4 on Billboard’s Hot 100 on May 9, 1969. 5 Heart-wrenching theme made famous by gymnast Nadia Comaneci and later sampled in the Mary J. Blige hit “No More Drama” 6 “Where everybody knows your name” 7 I spy a lit fuse accompanied by Lalo Schifrin’s timeless “dun, dun-dun-dun, dun” ditty—composed in off-kilter 5/4 time. 8 Marius Constant’s ominous “da da, da-da, da da, da-da” has been terrorizing us for 60 years—most recently in Jordan Peele’s reboot. 9 As synonymous with this daytime game show as Plinko 10 This Britney-esque faux theme (“I’m…
