Rosie is coming back with a gabfest, but this time for a good cause as America and the world deals with the ramifications from the COVID-19 virus.  Resurrecting her Daytime Emmy-winning talk show for one night, O’Donnell will have a live-stream show that bows this Sunday night March 22nd at 7PMEST/6PMCST via Broadway.com and its You Tube Channel.

The live-stream will feature interviews and special guest appearances with the likes of: Matthew Broderick, Kristin Chenoweth, Darren Criss, Gloria Estefan, Billy Porter, Morgan Freeman and many more.

Due to the economic hardships that hit productions in the entertainment industry at this time, Rosie is raising money for the Actors Fund, a non-profit that supports performers and behind-the-scenes workers in the arts.

In a statement, Rosie shared: “Everybody who knows me knows that Broadway has been one of the brightest lights in my life since the time I was a little girl. It has also been the lifeblood of New York City for generation after generation.  After all, Broadway has given to the world, now — in this time of tremendous need — it’s our turn to give something back. There is no better way to support this community than via The Actors Fund. And, with a line-up like this, I dare you not to tune in.”

As daytime fans know, you could not go anywhere in the mid 90’s without Rosie being on everyone’s lips as her series became wildly successful and popular, winning five Daytime Emmys in the process for Outstanding Talk Show.  The show wrapped in 2002.   Deadline had broken the news of this one-night event during the global pandemic coming this Sunday.

So, what do you think of Rosie’s fundraiser? Will you be watching this Sunday? Comment below.

She was my favorite of all the daytime talk shows that were around back then. she didn’t have one bad show. I was in tears of joy when she got her idol Barbra Streisand to do her show and the day she got her crush Tom Cruise on. There was never anyone like her before she did her show and there hasn’t been since her show went off the air. I will be tuning in for this for sure!!!

Corbin Bernsen to Reprise His Role of Arnie Becker in ‘LA Law’ Revival Pilot

Corbin Bernsen (Father Todd, The Young and the Restless) and the son of Y&R’s late great Jeanne Cooper (Katherine Chancellor) has signed on to reprise his signature primetime television role of womanizing lawyer Arnie Becker in the upcoming LA Law revival pilot.

This makes Corbin the co-lead of the series alongside Blair Underwood (Ex-OLTL) who previously signed on to the pilot to reprise his role of Jonathan Rollins.  ABC has greenlit the pilot.

According to Deadline, it is believed that Bernsen and Underwood will be the only original members of the mid 80’s-90’s legal drama on NBC in the pilot, but more may guest-star if the show gets picked up for a full-season order.

In the premise of the reboot, the law firm of McKenzie Brackman, now named Becker Rollins, reinvents itself as a litigation firm specializing in only the most high profile, boundary pushing and incendiary cases.  The show will feature familiar characters working alongside new ones on the most hot button issues of the day.  As for Bernsen’s Becker, now in his 60’s, look for him to struggle with a rapidly shifting sexual and political landscape.

The original LA Law ran for eight seasons from September 15, 1986 to May 19, 1994 on NBC.

So, what do you think of Corbin taking on the role of Arnie Becket in a revival of LA Law? Would you be intrigued to check out the show if it makes it to series? Comment below.
