With all of the revivals and remakes, why has no one brought back the one series we all need right now: 7th Heaven? It ran for 11 seasons, addressed serious issues in an awesome way and was great for the whole family. It could be a different show for a new generation, since so much has changed since it ended. Can someone reboot it already? —Amanda MATT ROUSH: I’m beginning to think all shows will eventually be rebooted, and with family drama still something of an endangered species (This Is Us aside), this one could work. I’d like to see a contemporary Heaven deal seriously with religion in a newly relevant and specific way. It’s a subject too often trivialized or simplified on TV (with the exception of OWN’s Greenleaf). Given the…

WHAT ABOUT… While I enjoyed “Ozymandias,” the Breaking Bad episode chosen for No. 1 [“65 Best Episodes of the 21st Century,” April 2], I don’t think it was their best. Season 3’s “Fly” was a brilliantly written tour de force showcasing the talents of Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul. And it was hilarious—hands down my favorite. —Bill How many Emmys did Tony Shalhoub win as Monk, and you couldn’t find an episode to highlight? You also forgot Psych. I miss fun procedurals. —Jamini How can you have a list of “Shocking Deaths” [page 27] and not include Poussey Washington’s in Orange Is the New Black? Her tragic loss rewrote the entire next season. —Lynn It made me so happy to see Sam Heughan finally recognized for his phenomenal acting on Outlander. “To Ransom a…

The episodes already streaming feature such wide-ranging guests as former President Barack Obama, George Clooney (above right, with Letterman), Malala Yousafzai and Jay-Z. Up next: tête-à-têtes with Tina Fey and Howard Stern. My only complaint?

james corden hits the carpool lane again

The Late Late Show Carpool Karaoke Primetime Special 2018 Monday, April 23, 10/9c, CBS JAMES CORDEN IS buckling up for another trip to primetime—after scoring Outstanding Variety Special Emmys for his first two specials—and this one is shaping up to be a gas too. The one-hour show will boast new installments of his Late Late Show hits “Carpool Karaoke” and a Sound of Music–themed “Crosswalk the Musical” (past iterations have seen the likes of Hugh Jackman and Hamilton’s Lin-Manuel Miranda performing full-blown musical numbers in between red lights on Broadway in Manhattan and Los Angeles’s Beverly Blvd.). “There might be an Academy Award winner strutting out in the road,” Corden teases. The host won’t reveal who his newest singing passenger is. “We haven’t shot it yet, so I don’t want to tell…

New column No. 1! What to watch with your kids Lucky Dog Weekends, check local listings, CBS Come for the cute, stay for the cause. “When I was in my late teens, I started seeing how many dogs are euthanized every year because they can’t find a home,” says L.A.-based animal trainer and Lucky Dog Ranch owner Brandon McMillan (above). “It’s well over a million.” Now, McMillan is spreading the word through this Emmy-winning and p-awwww inspiring series that showcases his efforts to rescue cast-aside canines from death row and re-home them with new families. “The whole point is proving that shelter dogs are not damaged goods,” he says. His case is more than made in the April 21 best-of episode about five of his most meaningful matches between pooches and the folks who…
