Here's the Scoop...

The television revivals are off and running! Roseanne is a huge hit! Murphy Brown is in the on-deck circle. And, now, Mad About You could be the next show to return to the airwaves.

Former Mad About You stars Helen Hunt and Paul Reiser hope to revive the series.

Hunt, 54, said on Thursday's episode of The Ellen DeGeneres Show that she's been "talking" with Reiser, 62, about bringing back the NBC sitcom.

"It's not for sure yet," Hunt told host Ellen DeGeneres. "I will say Paul Reiser is in my kitchen a good amount because we're talking about how to make it and not wreck it, because we're proud of what we did."

"I hope so," she said of the possibility. "It would be fun."

Hunt and Reiser played married couple Paul and Jamie Buchman on Mad About You, which had a seven-season run from 1992 to 1999. The show co-starred Anne Ramsay, Leila Kenzie, John Pankow and Richard Kind.

Hunt previously discussed the prospect of a revival in an interview with Entertainment Tonight in March.

"It does seem compelling to visit these characters 20 years into a marriage after raising an entire human being," she said. "So depending on some pieces falling into place, it could happen."

Entertainment Weekly reported Thursday that Hunt and Reiser have closed a deal for a revival, with series co-creator Danny Jacobson to also return. Sources said the sitcom will now be shopped to a network.

Reports: Will Ferrell escapes injury in car crash
Actor and comedian Will Ferrell suffered no significant injuries, but was taken to a hospital as a precaution, after the chauffeur-driven SUV he was riding in was involved in a collision.

The California Highway Patrol told Us Weekly on Friday the incident happened in Orange County at about 11 p.m. Thursday night.

TMZ cited Ferrell's representative as saying the celebrity was not seriously harmed and has since been released from the hospital.

Ferrell, 50, was one of three passengers in the vehicle when it reportedly was struck in the back by another car, causing Ferrell's SUV to flip over.

The other two passengers in his vehicle were also taken to the hospital, but their identities and conditions were not reported.

A witness said one was a woman, who was bleeding at the scene.

Police have said they are investigating the incident, but drugs or alcohol are not suspected to be factors in the wreck. No arrests have been made.

Ferrell is a Saturday Night Live alum who has starred in the films Daddy's Home, The Other Guys, Old School, Step Brothers, Talladega Nights, Anchorman and Elf.


Comedy Store owner Mitzi Shore dead at 87
Comedy Store owner Mitzi Shore died Wednesday at age 87.

The Comedy Store, founded by Shore's then-husband Sammy Shore in 1972, announced the comedy impresario's death in an Instagram post the same day.

"It is with great sadness and very heavy hearts that we report the passing of Mitzi Shore," the comedy club wrote.

"Mitzi was an extraordinary woman and leader who identified, cultivated and celebrated comedy's best performers. She helped change the face of comedy and leaves behind an indelible mark and legacy in the entertainment industry and stand-up community," the establishment added. "We will all miss her dearly."

Shore's younger son, comedian Pauly Shore, confirmed his mom's death on Twitter.

"Mom/Mitzi passed Early in the morning at 4.42 am she was 87 years old my heart lays heavy," the 50-year-old star wrote.

Pauly said in a subsequent tweet that Shore "suffered for so long" with Parkinson's disease. He remembered his mom as a "giver" who supported him and other comedians.

"She gave her heart, her soul, and her stages. So mom, on behalf of myself and all of the other comedians, we want to thank you from the bottom of our hears for letting us develop our craft at the Store," the comedian said. "We'd be nothing without you and your guidance."

Shore, who was also mom to Peter Shore, helped launch the stand-up careers of such stars as Robin Williams, Jay Leno and David Letterman. She took ownership of the Comedy Store in 1974 following her divorce from Sammy.

David Leitch to direct 'Fast and Furious' spinoff with Dwayne Johnson
Filmmaker David Leitch has been selected to direct the untitled Fast and Furious spinoff film that stars Dwayne Johnson and Jason Statham.

Johnson and Statham will be reprising their Fast and Furious franchise roles as Luke Hobbs and Deckard Shaw, respectively, in the film that is set to hit theaters on July 26, 2019.

Leitch is best known for directing the upcoming Deadpool 2 and Atomic Blonde and for co-directing John Wick. Leitch will be directing from a script by Chris Morgan, who has penned six installments of the action series.

"Please welcome David Leitch as the director of the Fast & Furious Hobbs and Shaw spinoff," said the official Twitter account for Fast and Furious.

Johnson recently said that he wasn't "quite sure" if he would be starring in the next mainline entry in the series, Fast and Furious 9, due to the on-set feud he had with star Vin Diesel. "Right now I'm concentrating on making the spinoff as good as it can be," Johnson said.


Schwarzenegger says he feels 'good' but not 'great' in health update
Arnold Schwarzenegger addressed fans and gave an update on his health on Twitter after undergoing open-heart surgery in March.

"Thank you so much for all your wishes and for all the cards and the phone calls and the emails and the texts and all this kind of stuff that I got from around the world," the Terminator star said in a video Thursday. "I really appreciate that very much."

"I just wanted you to know that I'm feeling much better. I can't say, even with my positive attitude, that I'm great, because I'm not great yet. Great is at a totally different level. But I'm good. I feel good. I get good care, good doctors, good nurses, everything is fantastic," he continued.

The actor also explained how he was playing a game of chess in order to "freshen my mind and memory a little bit."

Schwarzenegger underwent a planned procedure to replace a pulmonic valve that was originally replaced due to a congenital heart defect in 1997. Complications arose during the procedure leading to doctors having to perform open-heart surgery, Schwarzenegger's representative Daniel Ketchell confirmed to People magazine.
