Do you ‘trust’ Michael J. Fox?

Forbes magazine has once again released its list of the Most Trustworthy celebrities. Michael J. Fox has been on this list many times and this year he comes in at number four behind Tom Hanks, Carol Burnett and Betty White.

I don’t know about this list. I mean, did anyone answering the poll see this?

Oh, Uncle Ned.....

How “The MJF Show” is a success

I just found an article explaining what one viewer in particular – and I’m guessing many viewers dealing with debilitating disease – liked about “The Michael J. Fox Show”: It’s ability to humanize disease.

Shawn P. Sullivan at fosters.com writes about his thoughts on the show. Be sure to check it out.

“The Michael J. Fox Show” May not be cancelled!

Reports of the death of “The Michael J. Fox Show” were apparently exaggerated.

It is true that the show has been temporarily placed on hold for a while but it has been reported that NBC is looking for a new time slot for the last 7 episodes after April. These last 7 episodes will also feature some ‘tweaks’ that were implemented to make the show edgier and hopefully help bring in more viewers.

MJF Returns to “The Good Wife”

Michael J. Fox’s sitcom just got the ax, but he won’t have much time to mourn.

TV Line reports that Fox will return to “The Good Wife” for a story arc in Season 5 that will develop throughout “multiple episodes.”

Fox plays Louis Canning, a slimy lawyer who constantly goes up against Alicia (Julianna Marguiles), and we’re sure this time around will be no different.

No word yet on when Fox’s episodes will air but “The Good Wife” returns March 9 on CBS.

“The Michael J. Fox Show” :: Cancelled

Hollywood Reporter is reporting that due to its low ratings “The Michael J. Fox Show” has been cancelled. The remaining seven episodes that have not yet aired have been pulled from the schedule and replaced with something called “Hollywood Game Night.” Is this yet another reality show? *sigh*

It is unclear what will happen with the remaining un-aired episodes. Perhaps we will only see them when released to DVD.

While I have been vocal with my disappointment with the show’s writing, I had hoped that it would have the chance to improve. I was beginning to like the characters – even Ian – and it’s a shame that we won’t be seeing anything further of the Henry family.

MJF References in Radio Shack Commercial

Radio Shack’s ‘The 80’s want their store back’ commercial iss great fun for children of the 80’s (of which I am one.) It includes two Michael J. Fox references – a Teen Wolf (they even got the jersey number right) and a DeLorean.

Watch it below:

Back to the Future the Musical

Back to the Future Soundtrack AlbumTo celebrate the 30th anniversary of Back to the Future, Robert Zemeckis, Bob Gale and Jamie Lloyd along with composer Alan Silvestri will be writing a musical version of the celebrated film.

The book will be by Zemeckis, Gale and Lloyd with Silvestri providing the music.

The musical will premiere in London in 2015 with a possibility of moving to Broadway, New York if it goes well.

New Time Slot for “The MJF Show”

Next week be sure to tune in a half hour earlier than usual for “The Michael J. Fox Show” (assuming you’re one of the few still watching.) NBC is swapping the normal time slot with “Sean Saves the World.” “The MJF Show” will air at 9:00 EST.

This is probably an attempt to boost ratings since the program hit its lowest ratings this past week.

At this point a second season doesn’t seem likely.

And I have mixed feelings about that. I stand by my previous comments about this show. The cast is excellent. The writing is not.

 

Golden Globe Excitement

The Golden Globes were certainly…interesting.

Michael J. Fox did not win the statuette for lead actor in a comedy series (that went to Andy Samberg) but Michael J. Fox still got a lot of attention.

2014 Golden Globes 'Fun' Fact

Click to embiggen

E! Entertainment news ran the ‘Fun’ fact that Michael J. Fox was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease in 1991 and a lot of people took issue with that, arguing that being diagnosed with a degenerative disease isn’t exactly something most people would call fun.

E! has since apologized stating that it was an insensitive statement and that they understand the seriousness of the disease.

Golden Globe Nominations

Golden Globe AwardIt’s that time of year again and if Michael J. Fox is on TV you know he’s gonna be nominated for a Golden Globe. (As it should be 😉 ).

Best Actor in a TV Series Comedy Nominees:

  • Jason Bateman for Arrested Development
  • Don Cheadle for House of Lies
  • Michael J. Fox for The Michael J. Fox Show
  • Jim Parsons for The Big Bang Theory (When will Galecki ever be nominated? He’s just as talented – his character just isn’t as over-the-top. *sigh*)
  • Andy Sandberg for Brooklyn Nine-Nine

I have never seen Andy Sandberg in anything, but the rest of that competition is pretty intimidating. Good luck to our favorite, MJF!
