As we broke back on March 11, The Hub has acquired Who's the Boss? and they started airing it last week, but now we have more updates on The Hub's schedule. Who's the Boss? airs Tuesday nights 12-2am ET but we didn't mention in the original story that it also now airs in late nights on most weeknights (Mon-Wed nights) at 3:30am. Surrounding the sitcom on those nights is Laverne & Shirley at 2am, Happy Days at 2:30am, and Mork & Mindy at 3am, with the aforementioned Who's the Boss?, to create a two-hour, late night sitcom block. Sitcoms are no longer airing in primetime, except for ALF on Sunday nights 9-11pm and Thursdays 8-9pm, and The Hub's You Rule Thursday block (9pm-12am, encores 1-4am). On to the weekend, Friday nights from 2-3am had The Facts of Life, but now they have removed that hour with repeats of Are You Smarter Than a 5th Grader. Not to worry, The Facts of Life will still be featured from time to time on You Rule Thursday block. Happy Days (3-4am), Laverne & Shirley (4am) and Mork & Mindy (4:30am) remain on Friday nights. On Saturday nights, we have Happy Days (3-4am) and Laverne & Shirley (4am) only. And finally on Sunday nights, we have ALF at 1am, Mork & Mindy at 1:30am, followed by the unchanged Doogie Howser at 2am, Family Ties at 2:30am, and Sabrina the Teenage Witch at 3am.

With a best friend, Clayton Croft, living the fabulous life in Chicago, urging her to move to the Windy City, and a husband who merrily rolls along with all the punches, this is finally her moment. With one phone call, a turn of events occurs and Nilah must stay in Kalamazoo – reluctantly – to care for her aging parents, Bob and Imelda Hoyer. Stay tuned for further updates on this potential pilot, but if you're in Chicago, go watch the pilot taping! Anyway, listen to the great interview Marion gives to WGN Radio's Dave Plier.

  • 10/25/11: Nick at Nite Orders Scott Baio Sitcom Pilot

    Nickelodeon has ordered its first-ever original scripted comedy pilot, Daddy's Home, starring Scott Baio (Charles in Charge, Happy Days). A multi-camera, half-hour comedy for Nick at Nite, Daddy's Home follows David Hobbs (Baio) an actor who, after ten years of starring as America's favorite TV dad, becomes a stay-at-home father to honor the deal he made with his soap star wife so that she may return to the limelight. The project comes from creators/executive producers Tina Albanese and Patrick Labyorteaux and is helmed by executive producers Eric Bischoff and Jason Hervey through their production company Bischoff Hervey Entertainment (BHE), along with Baio. Hervey is best known for the role of Wayne Arnold in the Emmy Award-winning hit series The Wonder Years. Daddy's Home marks Hervey and Baio's return to scripted comedy, with BHE having previously collaborated on three acclaimed unscripted series including Scott Baio is 45 and Single, Scott Baio is 46 and Pregnant, and Confessions of a Teen Idol.

    For over 30 years, Baio has been a beloved actor, successful producer, writer and director. He received his acting break in 1976 when he was cast as the lead in the youthful gangster film Bugsy Malone. Baio is perhaps best known for his role as Chachi Arcola on one of television's most iconic comedy series Happy Days, followed by a starring role in the spin-off series Joanie Loves Chachi. He also had roles on two short-lived Garry Marshall sitcom Blansky's Beauties and Who's Watching the Kids. Baio also starred in his own 1980s hit sitcom, Charles in Charge. He also co-starred on ABC's short-lived sitcom Baby Talk. He also had big screen movie roles like on the sex farce Zapped! Following his television comedy roles, he delved into some deeper and more dramatic roles, such as in the award-winning ABC after-school special, Stoned, the CBS film The Boy Who Drank Too Much and as a hemophiliac in NBC's Senior Trip! He continued his acting career as the youthful associate of Dick Van Dyke on the successful CBS series Diagnosis Murder and a decade later, made several appearances on the Emmy Award-winning television series Arrested Development. As mentioned earlier, most recently Baio was featured as himself on VH1's popular series, Scott Baio is 45...and Single and Scott Baio is 46...and Pregnant. Off-screen, he has directed episodes of popular series including Charles in Charge, The Parkers, Unhappily Ever After, The Jamie Foxx Show, The Wayans Bros., Harry and the Hendersons, Out of This World and recently served as executive producer of VH1's Confessions of a Teen Idol.

    Stay tuned for more details on this pilot. Right now it is just a pilot, as it still needs to be ordered to series. If and when that does, we will let you know! Waa waa waa! Marion Ross

  • 05/06/11: Seven Questions with Marion Ross from Happy Days

    Mother's Day is on Sunday, and to celebrate Mother's Day, The Hub is bringing you a marathon of some of the best episodes featuring America's favorite TV mom, Mrs. Cunningham from the series Happy Days. But Mrs. Cunningham was only a character on the popular series, and behind that character is the award-winning actress Marion Ross, and we recently had the privilege of interviewing Ms. Ross, just in time for this special marathon dedicated to her and her character (which, as we learned in our phone conversation, are very much one and the same). In our interview with Ms. Ross, it became obvious very early in the conversation that she is just as wonderful as the character she played on television decades ago, and that she truly appreciates the legacy that she left by starring in that series and has a deep respect and admiration for her many fans. So, on Sunday, check out the marathon on The Hub, but before you do that, "sit on it" and check out our interview with Marion Ross, better known as Mrs. C.!

    The Hub's Mother's Day "Mom-a-thon" from 6:00 p.m. EDT to 12:00 am EDT Sunday May 8, 2011:

    The Hub TV presents its first "Mom-a-thon," this Mother's Day, with six favorite mom-centric episodes of the nostalgic and perennially popular comedy Happy Days. Tune-in to back-to-back episodes as the show's matriarch, Mrs. C, watches over her extended family of her own kids and their friends as they explore love, friendship and growing up in the 1950s.

    Episodes airing are: "Dance Contest," where Mrs. Cunningham secretly takes tango lessons from the Fonz. "Marion Rebels," where Mrs. Cunningham takes a job as a waitress at Arnold's to escape her routine. "Marion: Fairy Godmother," where Ralph and Leather are transformed into a fashionable couple for the ROTC Ball. "Marion Goes to Jail," where Marion lands herself in jail when her car crashes through Al's drive-in. "Empty Nest," after Joanie has left the Cunningham house, Marion looks to find ways to cope and occupy her time. "So How Was Your Weekend," when Marion's finicky mother causes rift when she visits the Cunninghams.

    These other sitcoms acquired are Happy Days, Family Ties, and Laverne & Shirley. The Hub has also acquired the half-hour 1960's Batman starring Adam West and Burt Ward!

Then back-to-back episodes of Family Ties will air in the 8pm hour, leading into an episode each of The Wonder Years and Doogie Howser, M.D. at 9pm. Then airing back-to-back in the 10pm hour it is Happy Days! This is feeling like classic Nick at Nite! Airing at 11pm is Laverne & Shirley followed by Batman at 11:30pm. Airing at 12am is the animated Transformers – Generation 1 followed by G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero at 12:30am. From 1am-6am will be encores of the same series starting at 7pm.

    His hair will always be in place, he doesn't mind if you touch the leather and he's far too heavy to jump the shark. Thought Arthur Fonzarelli couldn't get any cooler? Meet the bronze Fonz.

    Dozens of people lined the Milwaukee River on Tuesday (August 19) to cheer the unveiling of a statue of the "Happy Days" character, including Henry Winkler himself. The man who was cast as the Fonz — then cast in bronze — pretended to comb the statue's hair and put his arm around the smiling, life-size likeness, which is giving two thumbs up. (AP)

  • 08/08/08: Fonzie and friends come to Milwaukee Aug. 19

    Bronze Fonz dedication will include public celebration, Brewers pre–game ceremonies.

    MILWAUKEE — What’s a better way to honor “the King of Cool” than a day–long series of events being billed as a “Celebration of Cool?” The dedication of the life–size bronze statue of Fonzie, the “Happy Days” iconic character created by Henry Winkler will happen in Milwaukee, Tuesday, Aug. 19.

    Winkler will return to Milwaukee for the dedication ceremonies and bring with him his friends and co–stars, including Marion Ross (Mrs. Cunningham), Tom Bosley (Mr. Cunningham), Erin Moran (Joanie), Don Most (Ralph Malph) and Anson Williams (Potsie).

    Stars of the “Happy Days” spin–off, “Laverne & Shirley,” Penny Marshall and Cindy Williams (Laverne and Shirley respectively) are also expected to attend along with the show’s creator, director/producer Garry Marshall and “Happy Days” producer Bob Boyett.

    In addition, the star of the new “Happy Days” stage musical (coming to Milwaukee’s Marcus Center for the Performing Arts, Jan. 6–11, 2009), Joey Sorge (Fonzie) will attend and perform at the Peck Pavilion at the Marcus Center for the Performing Arts public party.

    The statue dedication ceremony (an invite only event due to limited space) is scheduled for 10 a.m. It will be followed by a public celebration at Pere Marquette Park at 11 a.m. where Culver's will be hosting a free public frozen custard social. There, Winkler and the other guests are scheduled to make an appearance with some later-to-be-announced autograph opportunities. Actor and director Ron Howard, who played Richie Cunningham, is scheduled to be working on his new film" Angels and Demons", and will not be able to attend the dedication. Howard is expected to provide a video salute for the ceremony.

    The International Happy Days Fan Club will be a guest at the Dedication Ceremony and club founder and president Giuseppe Gannelli will officially say a few words in honor of Henry.

    Don Most and Anson Williams, who of course starred as Ralph Malph and Potsie on the long-running sitcom, Happy Days, have reunited to produce a potential new series, Take 2. In addition to executive producing the series, the pair also star in the pilot episode. "Each episode of Take 2 is like a short independent film," says Williams, "and will reunite different iconic duos of the present and past, but in all-new stories, as completely different characters. They'll still have the established on-screen chemistry that audiences know and love -- but I think people will be stunned when they see just how different they can be." "I thought about Lemmon and Mathau or Tracy and Hepburn. The reason they worked together over and over again was because they had chemistry on-screen. In our favorite TV shows growing up, you saw that same kind of chemistry -- Ralph and Potsie, Will and Grace, Laverne and Shirley. Why not utilize that already established chemistry -- bring together these beloved stars - in these provocative scripts that Frederick Stroppel had written?" We will have more information on this series should it go forward and get picked-up for a series. Best of luck to them! Read the full press release. Check out clips on YouTube.

    Happier Days: Paramount Television's Classic Sitcoms 1974-1974

    It was the best of times, it was--well, the best of times! In the decade between 1974 and 1984, the Paramount lot was a cauldron of creativity, talent, and innovation. Marley Brant, brings her influence and years of access together in HAPPIER DAYS: Paramount Television’s Classic Sitcoms 1974-1984 (Billboard Books; $16.95; October 2006), a behind-the-scenes look at Happy Days, Taxi, Cheers and more than a dozen other television series produced there during a decade of madcap inspiration and accomplishment.

The talent was tremendous: Robin Williams, Tom Hanks, Ron Howard, Martin Short, Michael J. Fox, Henry Winkler, Penny Marshall, Andy Kaufman, Donna Pescow, Danny De Vito - actors who would become superstars, many appearing in their first starring roles.

    Through a series of intimate and revealing interviews, her own firsthand knowledge and exhaustive research, former Paramount television publicist Marley Brant takes us behind the scenes of these legendary shows for an up-close and personal look at the talented people who brought them to life. Brant examines the personal and professional roots of the creative talent, the evolution of the shows, the intricate relationships among cast members, and the creation of some of the most popular episodes, as well as taping sessions, guest stars, and where the actors and crew are today. Packed full of insider information, anecdotes, cast lists, biographical facts and little-known or previously unpublished stories, Happier Days is the definitive chronicle of some of the most creative sitcoms of all time.

    Pat Morita

    Oscar-Nominated Actor Pat Morita Dies at 73
    Played Arnold (Matsuo Takahashi) - 1975-1976, 1982-1983

    (AP, 11/25/05) LOS ANGELES - Actor Pat Morita, best known for helping teach a boy martial-arts mastery through household chores as the wise Mr. Miyagi in "The Karate Kid," has died. He was 73.

    There were conflicting reports about the cause of death. His daughter Aly Morita said he died Thursday of heart failure at a Las Vegas hospital; longtime manager Arnold Soloway said the actor died of kidney failure at a hospital while awaiting a transplant.

    His wife of 12 years, Evelyn, said in a statement that her husband, who first rose to fame with a role on "Happy Days," had "dedicated his entire life to acting and comedy."

    His role in the 1984 film defined his career. As Kesuke Miyagi, the mentor to Ralph Macchio's "Daniel-san," he taught karate while trying to catch flies with chopsticks and offering such advice as "wax on, wax off" to help Daniel improve his karate hand movements while doing his chores.

    A generation of young fans mimicked Morita's famous "crane kick" technique from the finale of the movie, which surprised many by grossing $91 million and establishing a popular franchise.

    "It was both my honor and privilege to have worked with him and create a bit of cinema magic together," Macchio said in a statement. "My life is all the richer for having known him. I will miss his genuine friendship."

    "Forever my Sensei," Macchio added, referring to Morita's role in "The Karate Kid."

    The role earned Morita an Academy Award nomination for best supporting actor, but he lost to Haing S. Ngor, who appeared in "The Killing Fields."

    Morita said in a 1986 interview with The Associated Press he was billed as Noriyuki (Pat) Morita in the film because producer Jerry Weintraub wanted him to sound more ethnic. He said he used the billing because it was "the only name my parents gave me."

    For years, Morita played small and sometimes demeaning roles in such films as "Thoroughly Modern Millie" and TV series such as "The Odd Couple" and "Green Acres." His first breakthrough came with "Happy Days," and he followed with his own brief series, "Mr. T and Tina."

    "The Karate Kid" led to three sequels, the last of which, 1994's "The Next Karate Kid," paired him with a young Hilary Swank.

    Morita was prolific outside of the "Karate Kid" series as well, appearing in "Honeymoon in Vegas," "Spy Hard," "Even Cowgirls Get the Blues" and "The Center of the World." He also provided the voice for a character in the Disney movie "Mulan" in 1998.

    Born in northern California on June 28, 1932, the son of migrant fruit pickers, Morita spent most of his early years in the hospital with spinal tuberculosis. He later recovered only to be sent to a Japanese-American internment camp in Arizona during World War II.

    "One day I was an invalid," he recalled in a 1989 AP interview. "The next day I was public enemy No. 1 being escorted to an internment camp by an FBI agent wearing a piece."

    After the war, Morita's family tried to repair their finances by operating a Sacramento restaurant. It was there that Morita first tried his comedy on patrons.

    Because prospects for a Japanese-American standup comic seemed poor, Morita found steady work in computers at Aerojet General. But at age 30 he entered show business full time.

    "Only in America could you get away with the kind of comedy I did," he said. "If I tried it in Japan before the war, it would have been considered blasphemy, and I would have ended in leg irons."

    Morita was to be buried at Palm Green Valley Mortuary and Cemetery.

    He is survived by his wife and three daughters from a previous marriage.

    A post from the Home Theater Forum concerning Season 2 on DVD:

    "So I talked to my friend. It appears future releases for these series have been cancelled because of music rights issues. Apparently "Happy Days" season 2 would cost several million in music rights alone. Whether or not they decide to release them with replaced music is unknown, but as of right now... they're dead in the water."

  • 02/04/05: The Happy Days 30th Anniversary Reunion will reair on Saturday, February 12th at 9-11PM ET/PT on ABC

    Big Ratings for the Reunion Special:

    LOS ANGELES (Zap2it.com) It doesn't matter whether or not Joanie still loves Chachi, because America, it seems, still loves "Happy Days." ABC's "Happy Days 30th Anniversary Reunion" proved to be an across-the-board ratings smash on Thursday (Feb. 3) night, getting ABC off to a strong start for the all-important February sweeps period.

    Thursday's "Happy Days" special averaged 19.9 million viewers during its two-hour run, a particularly impressive total given the tough competition it faced, as the other networks trotted out new episodes for the launch of the sweep. Averaging 16.2 million viewers overall, Thursday marked ABC's best opening night for a sweeps period since 2000. ABC's 5.2 rating among adults 18-49 was the network's best demographic start for a sweep since 2002.

    ABC's reunion special was particularly strong for the 8 p.m. hour, where it averaged just under 20.5 million viewers, spanking around new episodes of "Joey" and "Will & Grace." ABC doubled up NBC's struggling comedies for the hour in total viewers as both "Joey" and "Will & Grace" approached record lows for new episodes.

    In its second hour, "Happy Days" dipped slightly to 19.3 million and the reunion fell below CBS' "CSI: Crime Scene Investigation" and NBC's "The Apprentice 3" in the young adult demographic and behind "CSI" in total viewers. Still, the special held "CSI" to under 25 million total viewers, one of the drama's smallest audiences for a new episode this season and the show's 18-49 rating of 8.9 was its lowest of the year. CBS still won the night in viewers with 18.54 million.

    TV Review: Happy Days 30th Anniversary Reunion

    Henry Winkler made the rounds plugging next month's "Happy Days" 30th reunion on ABC at Wisteria Lane. Winkler is loving his time on Fox's "Arrested Development," he said, and has an upcoming scene that should prove memorable His character, the sexually confused lawyer Barry Zuckerkorn, stands on a dock and, to make his exit, jumps over the body of a dead shark on the ground. "I'm the only person in television history to have jumped the shark twice!" Winkler said, beaming.

    (The expression "jump the shark," signifying the moment a series veers into decline, was coined after Winkler's character Fonzie water-skied over a shark, the moment marking the creative demise of "Happy Days.")

    ABC BRINGS BACK A SLICE OF AMERICAN POP CULTURE WHEN THE ORIGINAL CAST OF “HAPPY DAYS” GATHERS TO CELEBRATE 30 YEARS, IN THE “HAPPY DAYS 30th ANNIVERSARY REUNION,” AIRING THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 3 ON THE ABC TELEVISION NETWORK

    Ron Howard, Henry Winkler, Marion Ross and many other “Happy Days” original cast members will reunite to celebrate the 30th anniversary of one of the most beloved and successful series on American television, in the “Happy Days 30th Anniversary Reunion” special, airing THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 3 (8:00-10:00 p.m., ET), on The ABC Television Network.

    In the two-hour reunion, series stars Scott Baio, Tom Bosley, Ron Howard, Erin Moran, Don Most, Marion Ross, Anson Williams and Henry Winkler will be joined by special guest stars Penny Marshall and Cindy Williams, plus a few surprise visitors, to reminisce about their fondest moments from the show’s enormously successful eleven-year run.

    The special will include:

    * Footage from the cast and crew softball game played this fall -- Cunningham Hardware vs. Arnold’s Diner -- a tradition initiated 30 years ago by creator/executive producer Garry Marshall as a way to encourage teamwork and a sense of family among the group. Tom Bosley calls the play- by-play.

    * Behind-the-scenes antics with the cast, original “Happy Days” bloopers, flubbed lines, dropped props and even The Fonz making out Mrs. C.

    * Hilarious and heartwarming clips, including classic scenes when Richie, Ralph, Potsie and The Fonz go on a panty raid, Joanie and ChaChi sharing their first kiss and the cast discussing the famous scene that started the “jump the shark” phenomenon.

    * Little-known facts about the cast, like how Henry Winkler helped Ron Howard get the green light on his first film, and why The Fonz wore a leather jacket.

    * For the first time, the long-lost brother ­ both actors who played Chuck -- together in one show.

    Appearing in the special are “Happy Days” creator/executive producer Garry Marshall and original series cast members Scott Baio as ChaChi, Tom Bosley as Howard “Mr. C” Cunningham, Ron Howard as Richie Cunningham, Erin Moran as Joanie Cunningham, Don Most as Ralph Malph, Marion Ross as Marion “Mrs. C” Cunningham, Anson Williams as Warren “Potsie” Weber and Henry Winkler as Arthur “Fonzie” Fonzarelli. Also appearing are such special guest stars as Danny Butch as Spike, Lynda Goodfriend as Lori Beth, Clint Howard as Junior, Ted McGinley as Roger Phillips, Pat Morita as Arnold, both Gavin O’Herlihy and Randolph Roberts as Chuck, the long-lost brother, Linda Purl as Ashley Pfister and Cathy Silvers as Jenny Piccalo. In addition guest stars Penny Marshall and Cindy Williams -- who later starred in their own spin-off comedy series (1976-83), after the title characters Laverne DeFazio and Shirley Feeney debuted as Fonzie’s quirky friends on “Happy Days” ­ will appear.

    Set in Milwaukee in the carefree 1950s, “Happy Days” began production in 1974 and centered around high school junior Richie Cunningham (Ron Howard), his family, Howard “Mr. C” Cunningham (Tom Bosley) and Marion “Mrs. C” Cunningham (Marion Ross), his friends Potsie Weber (Anson Williams) and Ralph Malph (Don Most). Originally fifth-billed, Arthur “The Fonz” Fonzarelli (Henry Winkler), the thumbs-up biker, increased in popularity as the series grew to be the number one show with TV audiences for ten years as it followed the “Happy Days” gang through their life changes, including college, the army, marriage and even kids. The final episode aired on July 12, 1984. Throughout its successful eleven-year run, the series received three Emmy nominations in the directing and editing categories, while series stars Henry Winkler, Tom Bosley and Marion Ross earned a total of six Emmy nominations for their performances.

    Henry Winkler and Michael Levitt are executive producers, Greg Sills is supervising producer, Linda Mendoza is director and Gary Tellalian, Fred Fox and Stephen Pouliot are co-producers.

  • 09/09/04: "Happy Days" are here again at ABC

    Alphabet has given the thumbs up -- Heyyyyyy! -- to "The Happy Days 30," a two-hour reunion special marking the 30th anniversary of Garry Marshall's classic laffer. All of the show's original cast -- including Ron Howard (Richie) and Henry Winkler (the Fonz) -- have signed on to appear in the special, which Winkler will exec produce with Michael Levitt.

    No airdate has been set, though special seems a natural for a sweeps appearance, possibly as soon as November.

    Penny Marshall and Cindy Williams, aka "Laverne & Shirley," also will take part in the reunion. And, in a "Happy Days" first, Gavin O'Herlihy and Randolph Roberts -- the two actors who played long-lost Cunningham sibling Chuck -- will appear together on the same show.

    Also set to appear: Garry Marshall, Tom Bosley, Marion Ross, Erin Moran, Anson Williams, Don Most, Scott Baio, Pat Morita, Crystal Bernard, Linda Purl and Cathy Silvers.

    "It was an absolute no-brainer," said ABC alternative topper Andrea Wong. "We've wanted to do this for a long time, and Henry Winkler recently called up and said the whole cast is willing to do it."

    In addition to the usual assortment of clips and interviews, "Happy Days 30" will feature footage from a cast/crew softball game to be played this weekend (Sept 11). Tradition was initiated by Marshall 30 years ago to foster a sense of family on the set; highlights from the game will help introduce clips.

    The games "were so much a part of our culture that we felt it would be a great centerpiece for the reunion," Winkler told Daily Variety.

    Winkler said the softball games grew so big that the "Happy Days" gang began playing games for charity, even taking their softball act on the road.

    "We played for the troops in Germany and Okinawa," he said. "We just moved as a unit. Garry felt that it could not help but make the team that worked together on the show stronger."

    Winkler and Levitt, who teamed to produce the final two seasons of the recent "Hollywood Squares" revival, are also set to produce CBS' upcoming "Dallas" reunion.

    Another portion of the special will be shot in front of a studio audience at CBS Television City, where the original series was produced.

    "Happy Days" bowed in January 1974 and ran for 11 seasons, exiting ABC's sked in 1984. It gave birth to three spinoffs: "Laverne & Shirley," "Mork & Mindy" and "Joanie Loves Chachi."

    In addition to Winkler and Levitt, Greg Sills will serve as supervising producer for the special, with Gary Tellalian, Fred Fox and Stephen Pouliot onboard as producers. Linda Mendoza will direct.

    Ron Howard: From Mayberry to the Moon… and Beyond

  • 08/06/03: Ron Howard fans will want to check out a biography of him that was recently published.

    Ron Howard: From Mayberry to the Moon… and Beyond, the first full-length biography of Ron Howard, takes an in-depth look at the Oklahoma boy who gained national fame as a child star, then grew up to be one of Hollywood's most admired directors. Although many show biz kids founder as they approach adulthood, Ron Howard had the advantage of brains, common sense, and two down-to-earth parents who kept him from having an inflated view of his own accomplishments. He also had a longstanding goal: to trade the glare of the spotlight for a quieter but equally creative life behind the camera. This biography tracks his career from 1960, when he debuted as six-year-old Opie Taylor on The Andy Griffith Show through 2002, when he accepted his Academy Award® as Best Director for A Beautiful Mind.

    Ron Howard Wins Best Director Oscar

    LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - Former child star Ron Howard won the Academy Award as best director Sunday for his work on "A Beautiful Mind," an exploration of the fine line between genius and insanity.

    The film, based on Sylvia Nasar's 1998 book about Nobel Prize-winning mathematician John Nash and his lifelong struggle with schizophrenia, earned Howard his first Oscar nomination. The movie, for which Howard shares producer credits, also won best picture.

    Howard, 48, who played little Opie Taylor on the 1960s television comedy "The Andy Griffith Show" and affable teenager Richie Cunningham on hit 1970s show "Happy Days," has gone on to become one of the most successful directors in Hollywood.

    His filmmaking credits include "Cocoon," "Backdraft," "Apollo 13" and "Dr. Seuss' How the Grinch Stole Christmas."

    A longtime Hollywood favorite who has built a nice guy reputation in an industry known for bad boys, Howard's victory with "Beautiful Mind" marks a new high for a director many critics felt was overlooked when he did not score an Oscar nomination for "Apollo 13" in 1995.

    Happy Days Reunion Movie in the Works?

    CBS's ratings success with a recent Carol Burnett reunion special has given the other networks ideas. NBC already has a reunion special on the "The Cosby Show" ready to go for May sweeps, New York Daily News reports. "The Cosby Show" was a massive hit on Thursdays for NBC from 1984-92. The paper reports that Cosby contacted the show's producer -- Carsey-Werner-Mandalbach -- not long after the Carol Burnett special knocked it out of the park for CBS, finishing as the No. 1 show for the week. "Bill always felt it was a landmark series that had a lot of important themes that related to family and how parents should communicate with children," said producer Tom Werner. "So hopefully the special will have some content value above and beyond just the normal clip show." The newspaper reported that plans call for taping the "Cosby" reunion show in April in New York, but Werner isn't sure how many of the original cast will be involved. "We're certainly talking to them all," he said. NBC also plans to run a two-hour "L.A. Law" movie during the May sweeps, hoping to score killer ratings so they can set advertising rates as high as possible. Networks put their best feet forward during sweeps to get ratings that drive the ad rates. CBS also is trying to get the cast of "M*A*S*H" together for a reunion special, and ABC has a "Happy Days" reunion in the works. Columbia Tri-Star Domestic TV president Steve Mosko said the industry "saw this coming" when the movie version of the TV hit "Charlie's Angels" was one of the biggest box-office hits of 2000, the News reports. "People are still hungry for some of these shows that a lot of us grew up with," he said.
