The Outer Limits returned to TV after a thirty–year absence. It was on ABC from 1963–1965. This time around, it lasted six years in syndication; first on Showtime. The Outer Limits still control all that we see and hear. Don’t worry. It’s only a TV show.

Kirk Cameron and his real life wife, Chelsea Noble, starred in Kirk; they previously fell in love on the set of Growing Pains in the 1980’s.

Andrew Clay threw out the "dice" to Bless This House. Man, oh ,man! He struck out badly. He should have kept the dice for good luck!

Shaun Cassidy, yes you know who that is, created American Gothic. He was the supervise producer.

Let me get this "STRAIGHT." I moved to Hollywood in 1995. Few years later, I became a cross dresser (never happen), be involved with a fat woman (EIW! Double EIW! I adored her very much), and had a baby with her! Boy, howdy! My fictionalized life was much better than mine Hey, wait a damn minute! I should be Roseanne. I can win the lottery too!

Roseanne was the executive producer of Saturday Night Special. She hosted the premiere episode.
