So far it seems to be an NBC thing.  Will and Grace, The Office (reportedly) and now Mad About You.  They have also discussed bringing back ER, 30 Rock and The West Wing in some form or another.

Hopefully they'll draw the line at The Cosby Show.

What's so strange about it subby? Popular television show from the 90s potentially can make a lot of people money? Nothing strange about that.

And back in the day I had the biggest crush on her. Damn.

Jack Sabbath: The West Wing


Since the original was a fantasy Clinton administration where the President wasn't a perv, the new one should be :

A completely incompetent administration that takes a massive dump on the country each day. CJ will have NO idea what's happening, Toby and Sam write incomprehensible tweets, Josh will stress about how to ram through legislation favoring the very rich at the expense of everybody else (while explaining to intersectional feminist Donna why this is a good thing) and Leo will just be trying to keep the president from pissing himself on a daily basis.

/Stockard Channing's character will still be in New York and schlepping the security detail.

I still think that Helen Hunt and Leelee Sobieski need to be cast as sisters in a movie. The first time I saw Leelee I was almost positive that she was Hellen's RL sister/daughter/relative. Most casting directors never seem to try to cast actors that have even slightly similar looks or features. Most of the time Hollywood ends up with a "Twins" vibe via casting choices.

If the OG WW was about changing one detail from reality, what have you changed?

// though it's also a world where the GOP nominates a pro-choice atheist with a firm grasp of issues, who voted to protect Social Security and pensions
// maybe they changed more than one little detail
// but what in this dumpster fire would you change for "Really The Most Beautiful West Wing, Believe Me"?

I had a friend who worked as an extra on 'My Two Dads.' Said Paul Reiser was constantly hitting on her.
She was 12 at the time.

They should bring back "The West Wing", with Rob Lowe (Sam Seaborn) as President. That was always hinted at in the show, and it's been long enough now that Lowe is actually old enough for it to be believable, and it even fits into continuity (it's been 11 years).

They could bring back Bradley Whitford, for sure (and maybe Janel Maloney, sometimes). Maybe Richard Schiff. The rest of the cast would have to be new, though. There's no way any of the rest of them would still be interested in working at the White House.

It would totally work, if Sorkin did all the writing. The original series was mostly fantastic when Sorkin was writing it, and then more-or-less IMMEDIATELY got stupid when they ran out of Sorkin scripts.

the final arcs around the Santos primaries and general election were not bad, but for completely different reasons than the Sorkin era. They were plot-driven melodrama, but fun.

Not everything can be "Two Cathedrals."
